Cargo Netting

9 posts in this topic

Want to add some cargo netting to the bow of my boat. Have seen a few posts in the past concerning this but can't locate them. I would like to get some locally and really don't want to spend an arm and a leg.

Anyone know where I can get some?

Hi Paul, I got mine out of my wife's trunk(shhhhhh, it is our secret!). It fits my boat really well. I think the nets out of gm vehicles are pretty standard and my boat is a 16 foot lund, if that helps. Are you still in WI? Going down to pool 4 Sunday, you welcome to come if you are around.

I'm pretty sure I saw netting in the Cablea's spring catalog...

Check in the children's section of a Target or K-Mart. They have it there for attaching to a stroller to hold toys. The wife picked a few of these up a year or 2 ago. Don't know the exact cost but may be worth a shot. Oh you may also want to check Walmart, they tend to be cheaper on most things. Otherwise hit a junk yard.

Paul, as far as mounting goes, use the round black cable holder that are made with the screw hole(they have them at most stores, in the electrical department(fleetfarm, hardware stores, maybe walmart). I think this is a better system then even the ones that the lund dealer uses they are smaller and look better.

Paul,
Since I did not want to pay the “Genmar” prices for this item, I took the advice from the previous thread regarding cargo nets and looked into various retailers:
Auto & truck parts stores, Target, boating accessory shops and ATV accessory suppliers.
Most places do have some form of netting that can be fashioned to fit boats. However, I found, the best fitting and reasonably priced nets available from Cabela’s. They also come with the necessary hardware. Marine Man is correct: spring catolog has them.

I picked one up at Walmart by the camping trailer section. It was about $15.00.

Paul, Mills Fleet Farm just got some in for 23 bucks a net that includes the hardware. They are specifically designed for the boat.

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
