TBH, I feel more penned in on boats without much outdoor access and view. Put me down below like on a sailboat and I feel cooped up.

I appreciate a flybridge, a cockpit and large windows for a great view and good flexibility. The use of screens and nets can augment safety while not restricting the view. Seems like a win-win to me.

Safety mesh around flybridge?

http://www.westmarine.com/buy/west-m...08_242_003_501

This is what I used to put up the 'GrandKid Catcher' on my boat.

Although I didn't add any more pad eyes or mounts, it gave the bottom of the netting a hokey appearance just using what is there. I'm ok with that, because the youngest should be fall proof in another year. (Or so). Then I will take it down. Click image for larger version

It is either Phifertex or the mosquito mesh from Sailrite, or something similar.
