I wouldn't bother....if it's for securing cargo on a RIB?
Halfords off the shelf elasticated heavy duty cargo nets have very robust plastic deck clips/hooks..metal joiners ..do a better Job than non stretch ones and are much more easily adjusted ..hold more securely when it's bumpy ..are cheap as chips ..and last for years! ..

no joy with this so ive ended up doing a cross whip with a square knot staring by pushing a needle through both ropes to keep position then whipping each crosswise finishing with a square knot and the tails pulled down the rope with the needle and burnt off with a hot knife.

here you go because your building up in the v of the two ropes its very hard to keep it neat, in hindsight i could have gone in one hole out the other and whipped on the straight, but im happy when stood at the side of it its hardly noticeable. just waiting for the rope clamps for the stern could only get non brand in black but they'll do
