I've succeeded in making a spectra front tramp for our Getaway. I used the orginal sides of the old tramp and cut out all the old uv damaged mesh in the middle. I installed grommets with a simple grommet kit and laced it up with low stretch trampoline line. It does not bog down in waves at all but still offers another spot to ride or lash gear. It also holds the rig up as the bolts threaded into the plastic of the spreader bar stripped out months ago.
I can post pictures if anyone's interested.
