  • 23 i/o stern cleats

    I have a 1976 Mako 23 i/o. It has no stern cleats. It looks like there was a hole in the deck by the rear corners for a rope to come through but there is no obvious place for a cleat to have been mounted inside. Can anyone describe how the factory did the stern cleats on these boats and maybe post a picture?

    Saw this inboard for sale in California: No stern cleats, just use the lifting eyes. I like this arrangement, makes for a cleaner stern.

    Scroll way down to the stern photo with the boat at the dock.

    the hole on your boat may have been for a rod holder.

      I found this picture, it is the same as my boat.



      I assume that there is a cleat on this boat somewhere below that opening where the stern fender is attached. Where/how was it mounted? Any pics?

        There were wooden panels that covered the scupper area. They were attached to them. The panels had removable doors for acces to the area as the batteries were originally in this area. I removed the wooden panels and had starboard ones made, moves the batteries under the console. I also filled in the hawse pipe holes and added pull up cleats.
