Hi Jotun!

This is what I had hoped that I could do, but the swags and everything else would need to be removed, etc....

I will probably run half hitches around it for now, send another line (5mm nylon/poly) down around the base of the stanchions with clove hitches and tighten it as I go, then half hitch the netting to the new line that is run between the stanchions. My Albin Vega does not have any attachment points along the toe rail.

I have yet to have one of those moments where the light goes on and you say to yourself "Ah-haaaaa". This will just have to do until I figure out or see a better way to do this.
