Hi. I have a H18 and I replaced the trampoline in 2014. UV Exposure to the tramp has been 50/50.
It is a 3 piece tramp and this past weekend, my knee caused a 6" tear along the seam midway of the starboard hull. Has anyone ever made a repair on these tramps once they start to tear? I have ordered a new one from Slo Sail, but they are 8 weeks lead time. I'm thinking I can just stitch it every 3/16", using a circle needle. Maybe top that off with some sail repair tape? Anyone else made a similar repair?
Hobie 18' + other stuff that floats and goes.
There are a bunch on Ebay new for sale. Slo sails has a listing saying more than 10 available.
Nacra I20,P18, P16,H16
i don't know what a circle needle is but i know for sure sail tape isn't gonna do sqwat to hold a tramp together
Mesh or fake leather tramp?
i have had high quality tramps repaired and restitched and way extend the life. i have seen enough tramps fail on people that i know i don't want that to happen to me (i need 2 new tramps currently):
you can patch tramps BUT if your hand or knee is making holes in the middle of your tramp it sounds shot / and if you continue to use it - you are using gear in poor condition and that can be dangerous - ymmv
(i hate slo)
(they are in Pinellas Park - but very close to St Pete)
I hate to report it but Sunrise was sold.
i have seen a few of the new owners product. they are not up to old sunrise standards.
my friend had to return his new 6.0 tramp multiple times and sunrise did not do the work as expected
hopefully it is just some growing pains - i will never ever ever use SLOW again
