In the attached pic one can (look hard) see that that there is a small space between the cap rail and the bottom of the hand made 'netting'. I needed to do this so that I can run the sheets inside the rail and also outside the rail, and especially when positioning the jib cars fore and aft to match the conditions and when flying a large spinn.

This 'netting', installed around the 'whole boat', is to keep a small dog onboard in heavy weather conditions - so it only needs to cover from the cap rail up to the middle 'wire' of the 'life lines'.
