    What is the easiest way to get the whisker pole attached to the clew of the jib.

    In the past I have had a ring tied in at the clew by the jib sheets, but that makes it semi permanent and the ring can be a tooth chipper.

    Is that the only way to form an attachment point?

    Use a plastic/ nylon ring instead? I've used a small loop of line too with some success.

    I tie my jibsheet to the jib, then about 3"-4" back tie another knot forming a small loop. Then I hook my whisker pole there. No additional hardware to mess with.
