Ummm, I'm surprised the seams are only double stitched. Most of the off-shore sails I've seen are triple stitched, not double.
I sail almost exclusively offshore and only want the best in the event of some unforseen weather (I've been caught in two Force 10 storms over the years), so I use only Hood sails - they cost a bit more, but are light-years beyond most other sails in quality and durability. I just got a new main from them: heavy dacron, glued and double-stitched seams, three reef points, heavy everthing else - the cost was $2,200 and $66 for shipping.

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.
