I need to purchase a new tramp for my H17. I just looked on ebay and found lots of different companies selling the tramps. I guess the options for materials are vinyl or polypropylene mesh. The polypropylene mesh is offered in 7.6 or 8 oz. The thread can be upgraded to Tenara for $50.
Years ago, I sailed on a Hobie with a single piece (I think) black mesh tramp. The tramp had too much flex in the center with your weight on it and collected a small amount of water. I wouldn't want anything like this!
I will be sailing the boat in south Texas in salt water with lots of wind and sun. I'm guessing the black mesh would be very hot and maybe some of the others colors too. The extra bags to hold lines and sheets, look like good options.
All comments about the different material, material weight, colors, bags would be a great help! Anyone care to recommend a company? Both good and bad company comments can be emailed directly to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
