rope grommets?

hey everyone trying to build a jib... dimensions about ..36 luff 34 leech.12.5 foot... been doin a lot of research and that book sailmakers apprentice says you can make rope grommets in stead of using spur grommet or sewn brass rings and a eyelet... i want to know if anyone has seen this technique used on dacron sails or used ever for the luff eyelets which i will attach hanks to.. also rope grommets for head/tack rings? any info would be appreciated.. i have made some and they seem strong but of course will not hold shape as much as a metal ring would... i was thinking.. sewn rope grommets with maybe some 1/2" weebing for xtra support and chafe protection..whatcha think men??

Re: rope grommets?

You are more likely to find traditional sailmaking on the Woodenboat Forum. Good luck.
