Not at all sick of questions. The boarding
ladder should be near the centre of the boat so you are not knocked about on
waves. On Rare Bird, it is midway along the beam. My 4 year old
daughter got on and off it easily. The dinghy should live on the
tramp. If it is light, haul it over the beam, if heavy, part of the tramp
can be solid and fold down for launching. This is also on Rare Bird and is
a delight to use with their heavy tender.
I jug it, but tanks can be built in under the
floor, or in the corners of the bridge deck if you want pressure water to the
We have used both fixed and movable (the front
and back free to pitch) booms, each have their good and bad points,
depending on the setup used. Leech tension is via the outhaul on the
main. A bit crude as it also tensions the foot of the main and the
forestay sag. No sweat for cruising, racers might want a set of runners to
the end of the boom for occasional use.
Keep 'em coming!

A few more dumb questions you are probably
sick of hearing.
Where is the best place for a boarding ladder? (dinghy or
swimming)? Where is
the best dinghy stowage? On the tramp? Does harry
bother with built in water
tanks or just jug it? On the easy rig is the
mast/boom connection fixed? If so
how do you get enough leech tension on
I'm sure I'll think of more as I keep studying your site. Thanks

That is for knotted polypropylene
fishnet. With the walkway for access, you
do not need anything too
flash for the tramps. Without the walkway, then
knotless polyester or
spectra netting is a better bet, but costs

reading the materials list you have $100 AUS for a tramp. Is this
correct? What's it made of, by
