I will be getting the tramp with my new TI; however, has anyone got any drawings/advise on how to make the splash dampener (sorry don't know correct name) at the front. I am not a sailer so know nothing. I would appreciate any info on dimensions and materials to use (including types of ropes).

You'll be after a set of Bob's Spray Shields.

(2) I have a set of your AI sprayskirts - and I see you've fitted your TI with a set. Do the AI skirts transfer to the TI, do they need a lot of modification, or should I start planning/sewing a new set?

I did have to re-tool for the TI sprayskirt, as it's about 6" shorter than the AI one. I've made a couple so far, and it works well. The TI is very dry under 6mph, but much wetter than an AI above 6mph. The bow wave kicks up and hits the front aka knuckle and splashes everywhere without a sprayskirt. In the videos, if you notice, the camera was not getting splashed (nor I). :)

You can find some instructions for the AI version on his website.

Pretty easy to make if you have access to a sewing machine and/or people who can sew. I made a set but they're a little rougher than Bob's.
