Our collection of 8 inch boat cleats

Ride The Waves are the United kingdom's primary dealer of 8" boat cleats. A boat cleat is a unit which can be used for securing a rope and as ropes are a fundamental piece of boating - boat cleats are just as much of a necessity.

We supply and provide a variety of types of 8" boat cleats. Some boat cleats are more popular and utilised more than others - we carry a range of types and accommodate each of our buyers.

A well known saying used throughout the world - but is wonderfully suitable for the boating world is: "You're only as strong as the weakest link". Regardless if you are utilising a 8" boat cleat for docking, towing a dinghy, mooring or securing a halyard - a boat cleat is completely intrinsic for all of the above.

Ride the waves supply marine grade 8 inch boat cleats, 8 inch black plastic boat cleats and 8" stainless steel boat cleats.

Choosing the material of your boat cleat will be contingent on the objective of what you will be utilising your cleat for; a tiny cleat can be employed as an aesthetic accent, but would only be appropriate to hang something like a fender from it. While, a strong steel boat cleat with a backing plate would be well suited for main bow or stern dock lines.

Make sure that you purchase a 8" boat cleat that is sufficiently strong for the purpose of which you intend it for - you can't really get it wrong with a 8 inch stainless steel boat cleat - they're unbelievably strong and they look unquestionably brilliant for any part of your boat.

What size boat cleat do I need?

Working out what size boat cleat that you require is fairly easy to workout. The size of cleat that you require will depend on the size of your line and the size of your line will depend on the size of your boat.
  • It is very important that you place your boat cleats at regular intervals down the port and starboard of your boat.
  • You should have at least - three boat cleats per side.
  • The more cleats that you install (within reason) - the better!
