There were/are several ways of rigging stuns'ls. All of them involved rigging extensions on the yardarms so that additional sails could be carried. These sails were only carried when before the wind as they would add more drag and not be efficient going into the wind. As they extended well beyond the beam, rigging bowlines to stiffen the luff of the sail would not have worked.
