Secure the Netting to the top life line and the toe rail (the Al perforated one) with a few turns of small stuff at each bight of the netting. This way if you have to remove it. You only need to cut the small stuff.
Terminate the netting at the gates and have a separate piece of netting for the gates.

That netting is called "Snaking" in the Navy and it has saved my life a couple of times.

And if you have little ones on board your boat it will help keep them between the gunnels.
