Scott I would love to get with you guys but if everything goes according to my plans....god knows it has not happened to often lately we will be heading for the Bahamas in April and stay untill late May. Not as many cold fronts and I like the water to be warm.You know this is going to be an Elnino year and I have a feeling it will be a wet winter with the jet stream beeing very low so I would rather go later.
About your tranpoling I thinks you can find that anywhere made to your boat size,mine is still in pretty good shape.
Well we are heading for the boat today,looks like it is going to be a windy week end at last.
JC.

Trampoline replacement

We got netting for new tramps last year from Sunrise Yacht Products in Pinellas Park, FL and have been happy with it. We like the knotless netting and holes large enough to allow waves to pass through, which reduces the possibility of rips.

Trampoline

I do have a question, since Willmar is out of business, who do we use for service issues? My trampoline ripped and I need to replace it, does anyone have a suggestion who I need to call or where I can get a replacement?
Thanks
Scott

Thanks all for the response. I'll call Sunrise since they are only 1 1/2 hours drive away. I also email Thierry but have not gotten a response yet.

Hi Scott,

Our tramp seems to fine at the moment but it might be worth getting your guy that is making your new one to keep the pattern because there may be a market going forward.

I think the sun in Florida and the Carib must do more damage than the sun in Sydney

I have hull #27.
I'll be taking the Tramp off Friday to see if it is repairable. FP is getting me a quote for a replacement, but I have also called Sunrise and this will be the first Mahe one for them. Now hold onto your seat, a replacement tramp from Sunrise starts at $1300 and goes up to $2300 depending on the material you choose. So I hope it can be repaired.
What a pain it will be to remove and replace the thing.
I'll keep you all posted.

Scott

Scott,

Wow, that is some price.

What material are you thinking of if you didn't get a factory one?

Might be interesting to price it here !

Scott,

Was the rip a small tear, or the kind someone can fall through? I ask because when we are out at sea, and conditions are ideal, Kim and I usually lounge on the tramps listening to the sound of water shooshing against the hulls, or just watching the dolphins.

Seadog you make me wonder now because just like you when conditions are right the two of us will be laying down in the tramp,readind,napping or just relaxing.If for some reason this thing would give up....here we go,it is kind scary not saying that I would hate to be picked up by the Coast guard having nothing to cover myself.....I will make a good inspection,at this point as far as I can tell it looks pretty good.

I tend to demonstrate the strength of the tramp for visitors by jumping into it. Someday I guess I will get wet doing this, but it is a fair test.

All
The rip is 12 inches long and right at the edge. It was big enough for my wifes foot to go thru. I repaired it and I'm trying to get F-P to cover it, which they say they are "working on it", I'm not holding my breath. I would not jump on the tramp and I'm very careful while using it now. I'm still looking at replacements but it will be a custom job and will take 6 weeks, I'm leaving for the Bahamas in 5 weeks so I guess I'll chance it, but will practice my Man Over Board drill a few times before leaving. All I can say is be careful using it.

Scott

Good news for Oceanview, F-P and the manufacturer of the Trampoline have agreed to replace my damaged one. The best I can tell is the netting has not been treated or just marginally treated for UV protection, the tears are occurring along the edge were the load is greatest, if you step right at the edge. I now make sure that I step well past the edge to distribute the load more evenly. I have to say the netting looked fine before the rip(s), until you get down very close and inspect them, you can see fraying starting with little "hair" like fibers sticking out from the webbing.
Keep an eye on this, don't want to see anyone getting wet (unless they want to ).

Scott

Trampoline

Scott,

Can you post the Trampoline manufacturers info here when you get it.
This will help everyone in the future needing help.
