Hahahha....I guess the zip ties are out???
...never serious about that one as I think I read about them in another blog (although they did mention that the black ones do not get brittle in the elements). I was looking for a safe an efficient way to lash the netting to the lines...looks like the half hitch will do for now.
Wish that I had the perforated aluminum toe rail...but no such luck. Will have to run a separate line along the base of the stanchions and then lash the netting to that to keep it tight and secure.
