Stowage netting / V berth stowage tricks?

I know I have seen this kind of stuff, just not sure where. On my V-berth side walls, there are a couple of stainless steel loops, one forward and one aft (head and foot of sleeping area) on each side of the V-berth. I imagine these are for stretching some kind of stowage netting between. I would love to find something to stretch between the loops to use to store clothes, books, etc., while we cruise. The perfect webbing would be stretched between an upper and lower shock cord and tie off at the upper loops and suction cup anchor to the lower corners.

Does anyone know where I can find stowage netting like this?

Thanks!

Mike

I did something like this on my last boat. I found pickup truck tailgate nets at an auto parts store.

You can also find cargo netting for "securing" things to the top of an SUV or van at most mass merchants in the auto dept.

The tailgate nets I got needed no modifications.

Try a google search for "cargo netting". There are a few online retailers that specialize in netting.

I think this gear hammock is what you're looking for. Click Here. $10 at West Marine. Gene, I like the truck netting in the v-berth. I may use that...
