      Hi steve
      the sunny is a lateen rig, similar to a sprit in simplicity.
      stopper knots are great for a sprit rig, I've seen sprits with holes
      and notches and loops, really depends on the design. at the top of the
      sprit pole I use a beefy nail driven into a generous hole in the end
      grain of the spar, just loop the sail over it, raise the sprit and off
      you go!
      for photos of a sprit I threw together from 4x4, 2x2 and an old blown
      out jib go to the Schooner Dory portion of my website at
