I am planning to rig a preventer on my 505. I plan to use 3/16 Dynema as pendants from the aft-end of the boom and retain the with a cleat near the goose neck. I will then use polyester lines for control lines that run from the mast to the bow and then back to the cockpit. My questions are: (1) do I need thimbles at the goose neck end of the Dynema or is a simple eye slice sufficient? (2) should I use a locking metal shackle on the control line or is a soft shackle good?  Any suggestions from more experienced riggers appreciated.  Thanks
