There have been a few posts indicating that in strong winds the air can get under the tramp on the windward side and create enough lift under the tramp to contribute to turning the AI over. Now that I see the density of the fabric weave it's not hard for me to believe.
In my 6 years with the AI I have never turtled but with the addition of tramps a few years back I came real close a few times. Yes tramps will grab air and it is a scary feeling when they do. Best advice is in high wind either roll them up or sit out on them. The times I got caught in a near roll over was from a sudden gust of wind combined with chop and I was in the cockpit not hiked out.
I think Tramps make great addition to the boat but you have to be careful.
