Quick release thwart?

I was looking to make it easier on myself installing and removing thwarts for my AIRE 156D. What have you guys done? I was thinking of using 4 carabiners per thwart to make it easier on myself. Any ideas? Thanks.

NRS and I think some others use a patch on the end of the thwart and glued on the inside of the boat tubes that lets you install and remove a thwart with a batton. I've attached a link. The only drawback is you cant adjust where it goes once installed, but they sure are easier to deal with then the Aire system.

I’ve always thought a quick release pin from my sailing gear would work. It’s a push pin with a small button. Look in Murray’s marine the button is tiny BUT it holds the mast up and keeps the traveler in place so a lot of tension and should work

Quick release thwart?

Small loops of prussic cord attached to the floor lacing make easy-to-access attachment points for the thwart straps.

Riverjunky, let us know how it works for you. I am thinking about doing the same thing for my super puma. I saw a photo a long time ago where someone used little caribeaners

I like the Maravia knuckles.
Aire used a similar knuckle on their older Tribs, but it was nowhere as smooth/easy to attach as Maravia's. I also ripped one off with a handline/strap around the tube. The Trib fabric just isn't made for that kind of shear force.



The NRS ones are decent. RMR used similar batten attachments, but I've ripped one of those off as well.

That's a GREAT idea!

A big part of what makes the existing Aire system "not quick" is having to thread the straps through the floor lacing down in the well. It's a 2-person job and best done with the boat on its side..but still time-intensive.

I installed delta quick links to lace into. (4) per side per thwart.

I found biners to be too big and the gate would get stuck open.

I was more driven by wanting to get the thwarts in the same spot than the time factor but the time is factor is a great bonus.
