cheap lifeline netting

Anyone know of a good source for cheap lifeline netting? I have a 30' boat and it looks like i'd have to spend about $80 at west marine to get what I want. I don't care if I have to cut it to fit or anything like that.. but i was hoping to spend no more that $20-30 on this project. I just got a Labrador pup that I am going to take sailing with me when he gets a few weeks older.

Where are you located?? IF you're near a large commercial port, talking to the fishermen might get you some used fishing net, which is very strong and uv-tolerant.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Fishnet might smell funky, though the price might be right. How about the stuff they sell for keeping deer or birds out of the garden?

I just replaced my bow netting - what you want is nylon double-braid 1/8" cord. You can buy 1,000 feet for $15 - $20. I couldn't figure out to do with 1,000 feet of the stuff, so I bought 50' on E-bay for $7.50. Here's a couple of links: Buy 2X what you need, I didn't like the way it looked the first time and tore it all off and did it over. :/

Lace the netting yourself from 1/8" cord. Here's how from Don Casey:

netting

There are many companies that supply nets for commercial fisherman (and other netting products) that will be cheaper than buying from a marine catalog. In the past I have bought from Memphis net&twine (memphisnet.net) and nylon net company (nylonnet.com)

I have heard that soccer goal netting is cheaper and lasts longer.
