Hanging Fruit

Can anyone tell me where to get the nets used to hang fruit/vege's in the galley. i've looked on the internet, Amazon, RV supply and West Marine but don't see them.

Thanks.

I've been looking for a 3' (or so) cargo net for over a year, with no success.

Go to the wreckers, all sorts of cargo nets in the trunks. Or you could try
Netting products for all applications. Sports Netting. Cargo Netting. Safety Netting
or Buy Hammocks Products in Canada - Canoe Shopping

Vasco- Thanks, but I didn't see the "hanging fruit/vege net" that I'm looking for; seems it's all industrial there.

At Amazon, the closest so far, a "fruit/vege hammock": Amazon.com: fruit hammock

West calls them Gear Stowage Nets, I think. I bought some last month. But they aren't in the online catalogue.

another tip on fruit and veg,once you find your nets.
dont store fruit especially citrus near,or in the same compartment as veg as it makes the veg go bad alot faster,somthing to do with the gasses fruit lets off as it ripens.
also plenty of air flow will help keep stuff longer.

Also remember to keep the nets away from hull. Nothing beats up fruit like a swinging hammock and a sudden stop.

We put a little eyelet underneath it into the wood, with a tiny bungee cord secured between the eyelet and the hammock. It allows it swing just enough, but not contact the bulkhead.
