Re: Trampoline replaced

Good afternoon Jerry. I did my own installation. On this install I used Dyneema. I found the Dyneema easy to work with but as mentioned by Drew Fry, pay attention for unexpected fraying. I used "D" shackles rather than looping the Dyneema threw the fiberglass. I found getting a tight tramp easier wi...

Re: Trampoline replaced / Dyneema lacing

I chose Dyneema because it had been recommended as being easier to use. I recommended the use of Dyneema because in my use I found it to be much easier to work with. Fortunately I do not have direct contact with fiberglass, the hull to net is a D shackle to a stainless grommet. I thank you for the i...

Re: Trampoline replaced

MIDORI PDQ 32 tramp. I am pleased with the new tramp, Matt at Sunrise Yacht was excellent to work with. The all in price with freight and tax was just under 1,200. My old tramp would not be reusable on a PDQ. Definitely go for the Dema lacing. Sorry for the delay, I was out of town when I received y...

Used trampoline available

MIDORI has replaced her trampoline. the original tramp material is almost indestructible, it is the sewing of the bolt rope hem that degrades. Contact bmunroe@mymts.net if interested

Trampoline replaced

MIDORI has had her tramp replaced, www.multihullnets.com which is Sunrise Yacht Products of Pinellas Park Florida. I dealt with Matt, who provided excellent assistance. 727 526 9288

I have the old tramp available, the net is almost indestructible, it is the sewn bolt rope which degrades. Any takers?

Found Part

Rectifier REGITAR RD - 09V
This part was destined to an off shore cruiser, but the connections didn't work. One of the volunteers gave the part to me hoping I could have the part returned to its owner. Is this your part or do you know who it may belong to? Where were you cruising? Brian

With this set up we have permanent bridle 5/8 3 strand with the center loop at 16 foot distance from either bow. Once the anchor is deployed put a simple loop of the ...

Re: Bomar lens replacement 16 1/2 square

Just following my post I was able to remove the lens without removing the frame! Simple, the inside gasket gently pulls out of the frame. From outside using a razor knife without scratching the frame cut the caulking that held the lens in. The broken lens has been removed. Now to find a local source...

Bomar lens replacement 16 1/2 square

As happens I overreached and rolled head first into the port forward hold. Other than my pride the only damage is to the hatch lens which needs to be replaced. The two hinges consist of 8 screws on the hull side. The 4 nut and bolt have been removed with some patience. The remaining 4 screws are so ...
