The solution came about a week later as I lifted the screen to exit the companionway. I held the vinyl, woven-polyester mesh in my hand, noticing that it was quite strong but pliable, moisture resistant, and was wonderfully porous, being designed to let in a breeze. We had a well-ventilated galley cabinet without shelves, and we'd talked about installing a shelf there to make use of the space. I had a brainstorm. "What if we made a 'bin' out of vinyl mesh? It's perfect, and it could be fitted to our cabinet space," I said. Tim pulled his head out of the engine compartment. "We could attach it with snaps," he offered, content that the project would not be expensive or onerous.
