Since I don't have any mid mooring cleats (avoiding any 'toe stubbers' on deck) I'm wondering if it would be OK to use a 'pad eye' type slide on the genoa track to attach the preventer?

I'm getting the parts together for a vang/preventer and I'm having a hard time finding a proper rubber shock absorber. I picked up a 'heavy duty rubber tarp bungie' I think (hope) might work. I'll want to swap the standard steel hooks on the end for a D shackle though. Any other ideas for what might work as a 'shock absorber'?
