Attaching Sheet to Jib

he Pirate has the right idea - tie one bowline, in the clew, then tie the second bowline to the first. I''ve used this setup on a friend''s #3 for years.

Do not put carabiner or any other metal fitting on the clew of a sail - when the sail is flogging while be raised or doused, a metal object could do some serious damage to a head that happens to get too close...

Good luck.
