    I am building a one-off catamaran and I need ideas for the trampoline. I am planning on using trampoline mesh for the main material. The trampoline is ruffly 7' by 6' and will have a max of 4 people at any time. I originally wanted to do a bias cut tramp with bolt-rope edge on 3 sides. However, I am having a hard time finding track that would hold the trampoline. This is a day-sailor and the cross-beams come off the boat for transport, so, ease and speed of assembly are a primary concern. The more time sailing and the less time assembling the better :D

    Any ideas for attaching the trampoline would be extremely helpful.

    Thanks for your help,

    Have a look at how Schionning attach their tramps, slotted pipe glassed onto hulls/bridgedeck leading edge with fibre rod in it to retain the tramp, might work as an adaptation for your needs.
