What's the best (easiest) way for a novice to tighten the tramp on an H16?

Thanks in advance!

Nick

Simply start at the front cross bar and pull the rope tight as you move down the tramp to the stern then do the same for the 2 pieces in the rear. I have used my main sheet blocks before as well, I ran then around the middle around the sidebars and put a slight bow in them, tightened the tramp and when I release the tension with the blocks I had a super tight tramp! Be careful doing it this was you do not want to bow them in to much or something might break!

Thanks, Brad!

Looks like we're gonna have some spring like temps here in Michigan and it'd be nice to get the slop out of the tramp! (Hmm..that doesn't sound quite right. . .)

Fair winds,
Nick
