Hi.  I originally responded directly to the original poster, but 
since there has been another response to the list, I thought I 
would share with you all as well.
We have had great success securing fine mesh to PVC pipes using 5-minute 
epoxy.  There are many advantages, including that it is quick to adhere 
and is inert in sea water.  Of course, this also means that one must work 
quickly before the mixture sets.  I have had much greater success with this 
than with hot glue, which often peeled off the PVC unless I sanded the pipe 
first, or than with silicon.
