Looking for a Trapeze Harness

That picture is of a catamaran trapeze assembly, it won't work well on a dinghy. Don't buy it. There's no use for the linked blocks, the lower piece of rope and the stopper, and even the "Can't miss" type rings are a little pointless.
Also, the "t"-shaped handles (which are ok as such) make wire length very critical. A rope + "doughnut" type of handle would be easier to install.
I was planning on putting a plywood backer board behind the door, or possibly glassed-in-place nuts so the fiberglass round the doors doesn’t become exhausted. I will glass in wood too around the bags, so I can mount the hooks properly.
Sounds like overkill. The bags are for holding the spinnaker (and lunch) in place, not for lifting the boat. There won't be any big loads on the fastenings. If the laminate is very thin, bolts with oversized washers will be good enough.
(What hooks?)
Is there a way to move a thread?
Just ask Wavedancer to do it.
