All long distance cruisers know that you need to store vegetables high and dry with lots of air circulation. Everyone I know uses a piece of netting that forms a hammock in the salon ceiling for this. Now being the stubborn designer I am I naturally had to try to improve a little bit on this too. There are two issues: The commonly available netting has way too large holes, letting a lot of smaller pieces fall through. And having only one net forces all the different types of vegetables to share the same bed, which is not always a good idea. Try storing apples next to bananas and see how long the bananas last, for example…

So I decided to use the empty shelf on top of the ballast tanks for this. This space is not very useful for anything else anyway. After a lot of stubborn searching I finally found a nice net with 4mm holes, which is a lot better than 30mm… From this net I sewed 6 separate boxes, 3 for each side. I also needed to make sure the nets staid in the air even when loaded with vegetables, so I sewed some small battens into the bottom of the boxes to make sure they didn’t collapse. So now I have lots of space, no garbage falling out, and 6 divided compartments. Good.
