Sounds like you have a Pentex laminate sail... which uses parallel high-modulus polyester laminated between mylar IIRC.
One thing to keep in mind MangoMike, is that the lifespan of the sails is probably somewhere between the two, but could be drastically shorter if you sailed in the tropics, or much longer if you sailed on the Great Lakes and store your boat for seven months of the year...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
