A trampoline, when used in the context of a sailboat, is a very high strength material under high tension woven together in strips to provide flat areas in between hull members on Catamarans or Trimarans. This results in a lightweight decking that allows water to pass through, as holes are intentionally left in the weave for this purpose. Most trampolines also serve as tension components of the sailboat superstructure along with the rest of the rigging.
