Ok, thanks for the guidelines... now:

What can I possibly hope to look for when inspecting the sails in this guy's garage? What do you look for to see UV damage on a Kevlar sail? Delamination of Mylar?

Is a 5-year old Kevlar sail likely to be of any use at all (assume it's been raced about 4-6 weekends at most per summer)?
