Would love some advice from experienced Wild Cat owners on where to attach the trapeze for the helmsman. I currently have it attached to the spare bungee in the front crossbar and find it annoying to have crew pass it back when hiking. Any advice or pics would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Brice

With the clamcleat trap height adjuster, doesn't it come uncleated when the bitter end is run up? I guess not. I assume the cleat has though bite to keep the line set.

I never " fall " down and at the end is a knot ,and with one hand you can adjust the trap height even on the wire

Perfect, thanks! I had attached it to the same spot as in this picture before with a short bungee and it sagged and got in the way of the crew. I can see in these pics that I should run a bungee under the tramp to the other side. Very helpful, thanks!

The bungychord must go tru the rivets under the tramp

If you put the bungychord directly under the tramp ,and the crew is not out yet and sitting on the tramp
The bungychord will stuck between the hull and tramp
