replacement nets   Posted: Thu 29 Mar 18, 23:40    Reply with quote

I am replacing my nets on my 1000 and am thinking of switching to the dynamee 1" open net. It is a little more expensive, it will not look line the originals, and it will be wetter. I think the kids will like it wetter and I want to see the water rushing by. If I ever take a big wave it will be less stress on the boat and when I fold the boat up they will be easier to handle and I will be able to see the water stays. When I purchased the boat, the previous owner folded the boat to pull it out of the water for inspection and one of the water stays punctured the hull. I always triple check that they are bending properly and not putting pressure on the hulls. Does anybody have any input?

The single best safety upgrade I think.

Etienne at ATN sized a polyester open mesh for my 35. Somewhat tricky with the bolt rope hull attachment, needs those individual sliders.

I looked into the ATN, but did not like the system nor the cost. So, went my own route.

Suggest you check out the nets section in: https://skeelsrinehart.blogspot.com/2016/10/major-overhaul-2015-part-2.html

There is a section on nets.

Also, there is some loosing weight info, with net replacement here: http://dragonfly-trimarans.org/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=779

Thanks!

I wanted the Net-sys dyneema nets, but just donít have the skills/time to saw/lash/design the perimeter properly. ATN makes a finished product in the right dimensions/geometry, ready to install.

More nets   Posted: Tue 17 Apr 18, 22:10    Reply with quote

According to pictures it looks like the DF1000 has triangular nets in front, front of front beam. Has anyone mounted triangular nets in front on a DF920?

Will the safety wire be strong enough? And the mounts? Which modifications has to be done?

Think it would be nice with front nets too / Christian

If anyone needs Cad or PDF drawings of DF1000 nets just ask. I do not have those front triangular nets on mine.
