Thank you both for your posts.

Having checked, yes there is the slot underneath so a couple of sliding eyes could be inserted and clamped in place. As the previous owner has epoxy’d a tube to hold up the main sheet half way along the boom I’ll need to drill out the rivets holding the boom end in place to get them in but I’m guessing this wil be easier than my original plan as I can then use alloy rivets to hold it back in place as this won’t be load bearing.
