Heinzer: very interesting setup, but I'm not sure I'm interpreting the photo correctly. Is it an eye spliced into the middle of a the sheet, and then passed through the grommet? Also, how is the... purple thing constructed? Is it stiffened in any way?

I'm surprised to hear that it doesn't hang up on an inner stay, especially the protruding part.
