    17' Boston Whaler or an 18' Trophy

    i own a 17' whaler and one of my fishing buddies has an older 18' trophy.

    you could use dacron but seine twine is better. dacron will rot,seine twine is soaked in some kind of tar and lasts a long time plus it won't slide on the rings. I make all my hoop nets using 5/16 rebar. The tinsel rod rings that come with store bought hoopnets are crap and too lite. Harbor...
