My X star did not come with cleats. Can you add these? I really don't see how I could get access to back side.

I don't have a Star, so I can't say 100%, but there should be a way to get behind the boats that came with them. Check speakers and see if you could access through that spot.

Same deal with my boat. I looked into adding cleats, but never did it. When I looked into it, I found out that there are reinforcements glassed into the hull at the locations where factory cleats would have been installed.

There are some threads on it:

Aft locations can probably be accessed from inside the engine compartment, and fronts might be accessible through speaker holes?

Thanks G. Guess I'm not going to put them in after all.

Did you guys see this one (http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/showthread.php?t=31933)? It looks pretty straight forward on our early gen stars.

I added 2 mid ship cleats to my X2 and its a pretty easy install actually if you are OK with drilling into your boat....
