I bought some regular dyneema SK75 and at a fisheries-supply- shop a 'netting needle'....Afbeeldingsresultaat voor fishery netting needle
.... to knot my own bow nets.

I extended the nets a bit by using the all purpose-eye on the float to support the net. 

Knotting the nets was good fun. I use the nets to store fenders, to attach the front mooring-line, and as some extra security while moving on the boat. Plus my children and wife like to use them to hang out while sailing in calm conditions.

Next: some handy tricks with lines and shockcord.
