I bet they do! I'm not familiar with California's water laws nor state drilling regulations, but my guess is the drillers are doing everything themselves and folks are reluctant to spend time and money engineering a well, especially if there are emergency provisions in place... I do appreciate the heads up, I'll do some research, see what's going on over there and if there is a way to parlay a business envelopment trip into a steelhead trip.
FWIW, I like the open cleat system my self. The feed through systems require better alignment when pulling (can't pull at much of an angle) the open cleats with a pulley you can pull from nearly any angle (180 degrees from the pulley) Plus I like to pull it from the cleat and forget it while I take a few strokes to slow the boat down, with the feed through systems you have to hold the rope up (keeping the catch open) while dropping the anchor... Lots of folks like them and I'm not saying they're bad, just stating what I like.
