Replacement sails - Hood''''s Vektran

Tape drive is nice, but not as long-lived as some other options. We have a tape drive #1 that is FAST! For a mainsail that''s used/abused all the time, the abilty to hold its shape long-term is important. We went with a local sailmaker''s pentex because of this. We continue to do well racing, and don''t worry as much about UV degradation when we cruise.
