We just need to sit on the leeward side to force shape into it.
Agreed, that's the only way to do it. We also had a dacron 150%, but we store it at home because the drifter replaces it in whatever conditions we'd use it in, is lighter, stuffs into a smaller space, and doesn't seem to get caught up on the shroud during those slow light-air tacks nearly as much.

Also agree with the others who say the 135% is a great general-purpose sail.
