The thing I'm wondering.... How can you sit on a cleat... They aren't exactly small or camouflaged. That's like deciding to sit on a bike without a seat and wondering why it hurts.

To be fair, there are different types of cleats even in sailing...mostly clam cleats and the horn type ones.That said, I sit on both types regularly and they're not really sharp or cutty...I snagged my wetsuit a bit once but I'm struggling to see how on earth one could actually lacerate their downstairs, in two places no less. Was OP humping it or something?

37 - larger ones you wouldn't sit on but there are plenty of smaller ones round the edges of boats that you can sit on easily. You shouldn't really have too much because they're normally to the side of where you would sit but if the wind's right you can end up sitting further forward or back than usual. And if there's no wind at all and you're lazy like me, you end up sitting wherever.

Actually #47 the larger ones are safer to sit on. I'll refer back to the bike without a seat terminology. Because a pipe that's a couple inches in diameter going into your corn hole hurts a lot worse than sitting on something that's basically a huge metal tube. I've done maintenance on admirals yachts, skiffs, and all sorts of small naval craft along with being on real naval vessels. I can guaran damn tee you I would rather take a seat on the cleat of a DDG as opposed to the small rectum penetrating cleats on an admirals yacht. Still the "small" cleats aren't exactly "small" just the horns are a much better size to slip right into your crack and destroy the rectum. Not seeing and then sitting on one takes an almost complete lack of awareness.

I missed edit timer. But I just remembered a time when a nub tripped and managed to land ass cheek first on a cleat. Had to get something like 10 stitches on his right buttock. Maybe FML staff changed the wording from "fell" to "sat" so it sounds a bit off to people who have some experience in the area?

56 - Oh, I didn't mean a larger one would be unsafe, just that it might be more uncomfortable. But I guess it does also depend how big we're talking. I don't think I've been on boats that big much before. :) I was thinking more 1-6 person dingys and footers as I thought that might be a starter boat, and I can say that the small ones don't really go 'in' anywhere though.

You know what's kinda funny. And this is totally off the topic of the FML but meh. We totally miscommunicated because our brains were thinking about different size cleats. Large and small were two completely different sizes in our respective brains. Just a funny quirk that made me chuckle.
