What

Netting For Bowsprit


BALANCE

Do most of you have this? Not the kind underneath but the kind between the sprit and the pulpit and lifelines.

Mine is falling apart, one becomes kind of used to knowing it's there, not sure I actually need it at all but wondering if this is sold or typically home made.

Nanette,

You can either make it or buy it. I don't have it, but would if I intended to keep this bowsprit. The only stuff I have found that looks up to the task can be had from On Deck Sports. Their #72 netting seems OK. But, I'd probably use some 1/2" 3-strand polyester to make my own. It'd be way over kill, but more comfy on the feet.

Best!

My friend Pete wanted new netting there for his dog's safety on a Tay. 37. We located him a beat up shrimp net for $25. He had all the net he wanted and threw most of it away.
Probably a visit to any fish trawler commercial area would solve your problem cheap. It's just junk to them.

Wouldn't trust one as a people catcher, but sure would be nice to prevent headsails from slipping over the side during a change.

Maybe have a look at the catalog at Memphis Net & Twine...

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
