The rigid net-like material that protects the sponsons on my 2009 Kiawah has a hole that should be patched. A picture of fabric sample is attached. My plan is to procure similar material and then attach the patch by hand-stitching using thread through the holes in the netting.

To make the repair as neat as possible I would like to use material that's as close to original as possible. Does anyone know what that material is?

After some quick Googling I found some similar fabrics at for example Just wondering if someone already did research and found an exact match.

Hard to tell the scale of the scrap for you posted the photo. If you don't need much of it, I have bought cheap plastic rain ponchos at drug stores or sporting goods shops that came in a drawstring bag made of nylon open mesh similar to the that (the ponchos are usually under $5 and are handy for a lot of purposes.) I have also seen similar mesh for sale by the yard in the sports and utility fabric department of some Joanns Fabrics stores.
