Tramp track for forward beam ona 17

Post by tnell » May 5th, 2018, 9:05 am

I want to update my tramp to a NON wrap-around style. I don’t think the track is available any longer. Does anyone have pictures of the piece? Possibly one available that no longer being used? Or other ideas?

I did that to my 15. I got a used piece from Tom. I had tried a different piece that was less robust and the tramp pulled out at the ends. The product is called
Kedder Rail or Awning Rail

I saw something similar on west marine and thought it might work. Which one did you use that was not sturdy enough? Tom said they don’t have anymore I think.

I used some trampoline track from a hobie 18. Riveted it to my forward beam, worked great.

You could also use eye straps. The factory builds tramps that have a rod that you use to lace the tramp to the eye straps. I did this on a 20, worked great

To was able to put together a factory kit for me for future use. I'll defer the new tramp as long as I don't fall through!
