I actually used a piece of pipe for years WITHOUT drilling any hole. All you need is a clove hitch knot (http://www.tollesburysc.co.uk/Knots/Knots_gallery.htm) and you can pull. The clove hitch takes about 1" to thread on a pipe. You just make two loops in opposite directions and slide them on the pipe ... and you are done.

Having said that ... for racing sails I use the Chinook tool ...
