Imagine my excitement when I received quotes for ready-made trampolines for our 55-foot Wharram catamaran!
Wow was she going to look smart!!
But my heart sank when I saw the sky-high price tags. Thousands of dollars? No way could I afford that.
But being the budget guy that I am, I decided to use the trusty method of 5mm double braid line and thread my own.
With seemingly endless threading Under and over, under and over, until… shit! over then under!
Easy mistake and had to undo the last hour of work.
But you know what? The satisfaction of threading my own trampoline and the money I saved made it all worth it.
