Just recently picked up a used Hobie Cat 16 and the trampoline is very dry. I want to make it so that it will last longer without tearing. Any recommendations on what to buy to make this tramp last?

Thanks!

There's very little you can do to an old vinyl trampoline to "bring it back". Problem is, years of sun (UV) and air (yes, air) exposure causes the vinyl to outgas and crosslink, making it stiff and "dry".

Whatever you do, don't use something like Armor-All on it. Slippery doesn't even begin to describe that.
