"I use line .I have pulled it so tight it crushed the skin on top of the beams making repairs nessesary  I add extra glass on top and corners of the beams .anyway keep an eye on it cause it takes a couple of years to show."

"Thank you Darrell, I get the picture. I will certainly use the pipe with the thickest wall I can find.  But I need to think about the whole thing. Ralf"

"Just a technical note: pipe has a substantially thicker wall than tube, and is correspondingly much stronger."

"Hello Ralf - Yes, they are fabricated from tube/pipe. In addition the webbing has only 1 layer over tube with 3 layers over rest of job sewn together.- Darrell"

"Darrell, 13 mm nuts meqans it is 8mm bolts, if everything is metric. Are you saying that Lindsay put it up with tubes (stainless stell pipe) not massive stainless Steel rod? I always thought it were massive rod. Ralf"

"I also think that tighter is better. Our Tiki 30 was set up with the lashings and the Tiki8ms are also lashed. We get them forever more tight and they will sometimes creak a little but you can't see them move. If you put your hand spanning the…"

"On our tiki 30 Nok Talay we had rope lashings and they were extremely tight. I never noticed any movement of the beams relative to the hulls more than a millimetre or so. My opinion is no matter what system you use is to get them as tight as…"

"Thanks all for the info Ralf-Unfortunately we're about 1800 K's from the boat at the minute but at a guess the tube is about 1/2"-13mm -5/8-15mm and the bolts, well they definitely have 13mm nuts so so they're probably…"

Ralf replied to Darrell Priest's discussion webbing T30 - How tight
"Darell, interesting that you own this particular boat. I would tighten the nuts until the web is so tight that you cannot deflect it by hand as Budget Boater says, but I am a novice in this question, still building my T30. I have been interested in…"

Budget Boater replied to Darrell Priest's discussion webbing T30 - How tight
"The webbing should be "bar tight" and not be deflected with heavy finger or hand force."

Darrell Priest replied to Darrell Priest's discussion webbing T30 - How tight
"Hello all - Should have been more explicit.  The job is web lashing beams to hull and IS the T30 of Lindsays that Ralf has linked to. Some of these webbing straps must be 7 years old and seem to still be in good order. With the stainless…"

"  As tight as you can get them.   I used $20 ratcheting cargo straps available at Home Depot. These are used on 18-wheelers to secure the cargo on the flatbed trailers. I attached these and tightened them until I could not get another…"

"I believe this post is not about trampoline material but crossbeam attachment. 50mm wide polyester webbing is still the recommendation for beam attachment on the T30.  It is the way it is drawn in the plans and no update has been sent out to…"

"Which webbing are we talking about.  Webbing for netting?  Webbing for beam lashing? We use fish net type black material for netting and it came from a sports company and looks brand new after 10 years.  Had to replace white nylong…"

kim whitmyre replied to Darrell Priest's discussion webbing T30 - How tight
"Tight enough to keep the beams from moving, not tight enough to rip the blocks off the deck! Do you have any pictures of the beam lashing in place? Are you using the "seat-belt" style closures, or something else?"
