Which knots should I use to attach the
1. Head to the upper boom cap.
2. Clew to the lower boom cap.

How tight should they be?

Ones where you can quickly adjust the lengths of both so that you can make the sail more or less powerful depending on the conditions until you install an on the fly adjustable outhaul and cunningham. :cool:

I didn't see any knot reference either. However, I've just used something that won't slip and tension with just the slightest amounts of scalloping left between the grommets.
