So I have a fiddle block with cam cleat for my main sheet (end boom sheeting). The way the cleat is arranged makes it very awkward to cleat the sheet in.
My idea is to get rid of the fiddle block with cam cleat and replace it with a regular fiddle block and then use a swivelling cam cleat with fairlead mounted on the boomkin..
The question is: What will the load on the swivelling cam cleat be? When not in motion, does it take the full load of the end of the boom?
CLEAT
