I'd consider sitting on the aft seat the first sail or two so you know where you want the sheet block. JM recommended holes or pegs in the knees and using that for the sheet. If you look at my Lil Bit, I put some rings in behind aft frame and that is really close to perfect IF I go "across the hull". A few minutes might give you all the info you need.

Hey, got to do the work to learn :P

3/8" hole in the frame (epoxy coated) with line through. Allows tie off for things (like anchor, sheet, fenders, etc) as well as sheet rings (on the end).

Ignore the dirt. She'd been fishing :)

Well, so far I have learned that it's important to read the plans carefully. :wink:

Jaysen uses a 3/8" hole but I think mine are either 1" or 1.25" so I can accommodate more than one line or a strap and easily tie a round turn.

Correct. I didn't want to have lots of lines, just one that I could put under tension. I'll be adding a second line if I ever get time alone with her again. Or maybe I'll go fishing...
