Still learning - questions with pic links
In this first picture, you'll see a base for the mast - but not the one that the mast is stepped on. What's this additional base for? (And where would I read up on the boat so as not to bother folks with simple questions like this?)
In the second picture, link below, you'll see the deck of my old FS and some cleats. What's the old silver colored cleat for - just tying up to a dock? The jib fairlead block is clear, and the flat ratchet block that the jib sheet runs through. But there's no cleat for the jib sheet - is this just old-style oversight? Unless it's the cam cleat forward of the ratchet block, which would serve the jib sheet coming from the opposite side of the boat and is quite inconvenient and in the way if there's a number of people of board. Any other ideas for what that cam cleat would be? Does everyone have a cam cleat for the jib sheet now, just next to and inside of the flat ratchet block?
