Hello everybody

On our 1968 Commander 31 the cleat in the bow (which is bigger than the ones in the stern) is missing; can anyone tell me the size and shape (one foot and just the same shape like the ones in the stern or two feet?) of this original cleat in order to buy a vintage one? 

Many thanks!!!

Your original cleat was something like this:

but maybe a bit bigger, like 4-5 inches. Mine broke out, and was very corroded, so I replaced it with a two-leg stainless model which is easier to use.

Thank you so much Jim!

I have several tear drop cleats 

If your intrested .

I am not aware of any brand new ones larger than 4" .

You could probably measure the sun tan left behind from the base on your boat 

Thank, Jeremy!

Do you mean the size (4'') of the base of the cleat?

I'm referring to the length tip to tip of the upper portion .

My guess would be 6-8"

Regarding the base,  you may ne able to see a shadow on the deck of what the missing ones footprint was. You can also measure the hole spacing

Maybe the original was only 4 inches. I remember that we used to loop a pre-spliced dock line around it two times, because just once around didn't seem secure enough.
