Kevlar sails

Because kevlar stretches so little it is doubly important that a Kevlar sail be cut correctly in the first place both for shape and for stress mapping. When you talk about cutting down a bigger sail than you need it is highly unlikely that you will end up with a sail that has the right shape or that has the right thread orientation.
