My son purchased a 12 foot sail and wants to attach it to the wide end to the back of his house and the pointed end to a shed 16 feet from the house for shade ( he lives in Gloucester a sea town). Question is what is the best hardware to use hooks, stainless steel screws Etc?

There's a lot of info if you google it. Here's one:

I would consider marine-grade hardware.

This would be an unwise plan! That sail will put a lot of stress on not only the anchor points, but the structures they are attached to. It is unlikely that any fastener will work, even if you find a big enough one to hold the sail, it will likely tear out of it's anchor point. Again, too much stress on the structures, this is an unwise plan
