I have had about 12 of the screws holding the tramp pull out of the hull. Has anyone experienced the same problem??? Not sure how or when it happened - only noticed it by accident.

May have the tramps too tight or heavy weight... sudden loads? Someone using it as a trampoline?

Next larger screw for each of the pulled ones should fix it.

Thanks Matt. The max I have had is 3 adults on board. Tramps were (if anything) in need of tightening. Most definitely not been jumped-on.

What is the size of the existing tramp screws? Is the length critical (is it OK if the new ones are longer?)

I don't have the screw spec... weekend... but longer would be no problem.

Lots of snow piled on it in the winter? We had a trailer bend one winter (Central NY, 150-200 inches some years).

Thanks for the thought cny_ap, but I had to laugh. We are in Dubai (forgot to mention that!). Have wondered though, if the high temperatures here had something to do with it. It varies from about 70F to 120F.
