Does the wing somehow have to be disassembled to get the old tramp off and new tramp on???
thanks,
Adam

Yes. The inner support tube has to be taken off (the straight tube that is held in place by the castings which are riveted to the main wing tube). The system is designed so that you don't need any tools to do this. Just spread the main wing tube apart and pop the inner tube out of the castings(probably easier with two people). Then slide the tubes out of the wing tramp.

You can insert one wind leg in the hull (all the way in) and lean against the other to spread.
