Hi everybody, I'm new to the forum :)

I have a 1998 Hobie 16 (Europe) with an old style mainsheet traveler swivel cam cleat. And with an old style baseplate on the rear beam. I think it's from a company called "Northfix" Looks like this:

However, I need to replace it and I'd like to use today's standard Harken cleat (with bullseye). I figured it uses a different type of baseplate on the beam.

Now my question:
Can I just replace the old baseplate by the new one? Does anybody know if the holes are the same or do I have to drill new ones??
Obviously, worst case would be when the holes wouldn't fit by a few millimeters :?

Thank you so much in advance!

No idea on the hole placement... doubt they are the same.

I posted a few years ago about overhauling some of my cleats and trying to standardize on that Harken Cammatic 150, which (on my 2000 boat) is used everywhere except the main traveler, where I had a Holt-Allen 76. According to that thread the center spacing is the same but the bolts needed to be longer.
