I like the idea of making an eye splice on the genoa sheet, then using a modern Dyneema/Spectra soft shackle to attach it to the sail. I've made up the soft shackles already (they are very easy to make yourself, hold incredible loads, and are neither heavy nor as hard as a steel shackle) but need to wait for the right time to splice the sheets - which means when I replace them as splicing used double-braid is very difficult.
