Netting

Guess this section is as good a spot as any to post this question.

Can anyone recommend a source for storage netting. I want to place nets in a lot of nooks and crannies that otherwise would go unused. Especially in the bottom area of cabinets and shelfs that are real narrow due to hull angle.

I've found a couple of web sites but they mostly have netting for sports or heavy duty storage. The smallest square size I've found is about 0.75". I think I need something smaller maybe 0.25" or 0.50" at most.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Thought about making your own with bungee cord and small line?

You DO have to be careful what you store there - remember that if you take on water - fact of boating - it may slosh around and get those items wet. Plus, it stays pretty damp down in those areas anyway. All of my lower-in-the-boat storage areas are for items that, in normal use, get wet anyway - ie. hoses, fittings, some wire/cables, extra water, and so on.

good luck

Thanks capjohn360.

The beach probably won't be a reliable source and finding specific netting I want might be a little tricky. However, I will check out fishing related websites.

Depending on how much weight you want to put into it, you might think about an automotive trunk organizer net. I have a several OEM Ford Minivan "envelope style" cargo nets that I got at a garage sale for cheap; they're stretchy, hold a lot of stuff, and have loops in the corners so they can be mounted in any area you want. I put fenders, spare docklines, life vests and storm sails in them, and they keep them reasonably organized and mildew-free. I'm rather appalled at what they want for them new, $51.75! http://www.fordaccessoriesstore.com/fas/b2c/catalog.asp Type "Cargo Net" in the search field.

I'm sure such a thing is available after-market, for example this flat style at JC Whitney's is only 16 bucks: http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/P...001425/c-10101

Another source might be camping stores. Here's one at REI with carabiners in the corners for $20: http://www.rei.com/online/store/Prod...cat=REI_SEARCH

I've seen cheap light-duty gear hammocks at Army-Navy stores too, couple bucks apiece.

Mostly I want light restraining nets for the narrow part of shelfs and cabinents in the interior.

Based on the suggestion about fishing nets I found this sight which seems to have exactly what I want:

Thanks all, for the suggestions.
