Had my wave on the beach for the week and some #^*hole decided to smoke a joint sitting on the tramp. I am now the proud owner of a burn hole about the size of a pencil in my tramp. Should this be patched (repaired)? If so, any recommendations.
:(
Years ago another smoker did the same thing to my '16, but it was a solid material tramp. I never made any repairs to the '16.

I'm counting on a little karma for these pointy heads................ :twisted:

thanx in advance,
bill

My solution, make him buy you a new tramp.
What would he have done if you burned a hole in his car seat?

I know nothing about repair, so I'm afraid all I can offer is the grumpy solution above. Create your own Karma.

I don't think he knows who did it and I doubt if he even has a car.

I suspect that the best thing is to just leave the hole alone. It is probably seared around the edges and will not get any worse.

He could also install a drink holder there.

Hey Jack! How is the dog? I have a question. The plastic tubes that are on the side of my classic are done. The tramp is ok, kinda.. Can't I just buy 8 of the tubes and slide them in there?

My son (Jack) and I went sailing today on the Indian river. He got off then I used some tiller extenders to stand up and sail across to Cocoa at sunset!

Liz says hi!

You can for sure just buy new plastic tubes and slip em in. I did just that on my 97 classic tramp!
