Ned advice re replacing Dutchman guides to sail
I need some advice on how to reattach the Dutchman guides onto our sail. Our sails have little circle plastics that would guide the Dutchman lines through the sail. We do not currently have a Dutchman system, but the sail has the plastic guides and a hole in the sail for the line to go through. I suppose the PO had used or considered using the Dutchman system so he had the grommets (fairleads?) put in the sail.
A couple of those plastic guides have fallen off, and although we are not using the system, there are small holes in the sails that were covered by the plastic guide. It might not be good to have those small holes in the sail without the cover attached. Any opinions?
Also, what type of glue do I use to glue on another cover? I don't have a picture, but they attach to both sides of the sail. Has anyone dealt with this?
