Pull Up Cleats

Mar 24, 2022

Many boaters prefer the clean appearance and greater safety of modern pull-up cleats that retract flush into the deck when not in use. But depending on where they need to be installed, limited mounting room can make it difficult. Series 490 Rectangular Pull-Up Cleats from Accon Marine feature a sleek, compact design that allows use in even challenging spaces where other flush-mount hardware simply won’t fit.

Made from polished, marine-grade 316 stainless steel for extreme durability and a lifetime of good looks, Series 490 Pull-Up Cleats feature a fresh, modern aesthetic that complements the contemporary profile of today’s boats. A neat recess formed in the cleat allows it to be pulled up easily when required for mooring, while its broad flat top pushes effortlessly flush into the deck when no longer needed. The cleat’s mounded base allows water to run off without pooling, while its compact, innovative design eliminates the need for a cut-out, making installation quick and easy. A helpful online video at bit.ly/2tceAgA demonstrates the process on a similar Accon cleat.

Available in 6″, 8″ and 10″ sizes to accommodate mooring line sizes of up to 5/8″, 3/4″ and 1″ respectively, Series 490 Rectangular Pull-Up Cleats suit a wide range of boats and yachts as both original equipment or a thoughtful upgrade for DIY refits. MSRP starts at $92.82.

The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
