What year did Hobie start making switchable trampolines? I've been told that later model boats have the aluminum tube things on the hull for the trampoline to slide into. I guess there has to be a slot in the rear crossmember too. What year did this start?

The Club version had a track attached to the hull. We made both versions for a number of years before changing to the track version for all tramps... we created a hook for the Classic tramp to slide into the track. This simplified production and inventory for us.

Looks like this started with 2000 Model year.

Fantastic! This is a great resource for information. Since you're doing so well Matt ... when did we switch from the aluminum Hobie 20 style rudder heads and go with the EZ-Loc?

EZ Loc rudders started production in 2004. Likely 2005 Model year.
