Dear smart H14 fans,

I would like to have your knowledge...I have a problem...
I put together the H14.. I didn't put the screws into its place connecting the hulls to the trampoline briddle ( i don't know its name)...
so if The 2 hulls lives two different lifes....If I put the screws and stepp the mast it will be better?
Or it has bigger prolems?

Thank You very much,
Waiting your reply,
Lafouchat

Not sure what your problem is because English is not your first language.

Try posting in your native language and photos will help us help you.

Ok, I try another way..
My problem is that the whole boat is instable...i mean the "cradle"( side bars+ back and front bar). i attached it to the hulls ( withouth screws) and it is instable too...what could be wrong?
Under "instable" i mean the whole boat and "cradle" has a big free move and twist....

I'm going to take a shot in the dark and say without the screws fastened it is going to be impossible to tell, I know on mine if I lift one hull at the bow or stern the other hull lifts with no twist in the cross bars

When you slid the bars into the corners did they seat all the way in? did they seem loose as you were assembling them? If I remember correctly I tapped mine with a rubber mallet Do you have any Pics of it twisting and pics of the corners?

You seem to be saying you put the frame ("cradle") onto the hulls without the pylon bolts ("screws") which would indeed make the boat unstable. Why don't you just put the screws in? Do you not have them?

No, I don't have them.
I don't really know that a screw would be great there or not....
So You think this is the problem?
When I had the frame (thank you for it, now I know its name) without the hulls it is unstable too..i thought it has a bigger problems. i made some photos about the the frame I load up soon.

You definitely must install the pylon bolts and nuts. Stability will be added to the frame when the trampoline is installed and tightened also.

Dear forum friends,

Thank You for Your help. I put in the pylon bolts and tightened the tramp and so the problem is solved.
Thank you very much, have a great day,
