Spinnaker - Aft Sheet Blocks

Hello Shipmates!!

My last yacht was a Beneteau 321 Oceanis which had lightening holes in the toe rail which made it so easy to fly a spinnaker however, I now have a 2004 Jeanneau SO 37 with a solid toe rail. Has anyone flown a symmetrical spinnaker on similar and if so where do you attach the aft blocks that accommodate the sheets / guys now that my holes are missing (que)? It might be fairly obvious but better to bow to experience than bimble on and probably exceed the loading on part of a structure not designed to accept it.
