Keeping children and pets aboard

What is the issue?
Guard rails present large gaps. This makes it a challenge to keep small souls aboard, who are unwise to the dangers of sailing.

Why address this?
The thought of losing children or pets overboard is simply unthinkable, and yet it is hard to strap them down. A compromise needs to be achieved for the safety of the little folk and the nerves of the parents and guardians.

How to address this?
Install lifeline netting as presented above and detailed below to keep children and pets securely aboard.
