So today the weather man accidentally forecast 10-20mph winds when he obviously meant 1-2.. :x

So while paddling my wave around on my local lake, I find myself lacking a place to set my beer.

Ive looked at the catalog and saw the cup holder you can get sewn into the tramp. But that requires a sail shop which in my case the nearest is over a hundred miles away.

So I was thinking, why not have pretty much exactly the same thing, but have 3 grommets in it, and you can basically undo the lacing down the center of the tramp however far up needed to put the cup holder where you want it, then just lace it in . That way you could do it yourself, move it, remove it.. etc etc. No extra parts, nothing permanent.

Just a thought.

Any upholstery shop can do that and any tramp repairs someone would want.

You could always take a bicycle cup holder and zip tie it to the shrouds.

Or you could wear that plastic beer hat with the tubes and keep both hands free. That would be my personal favorite.

I have 4 can holders, and don't drink. So I stuff all sorts of things in them. HA.
