Sail inspections

The sounds you get from passing a needle through the cloth will vary depending on what the cloth is made of and what it may have been treated with by the manufacturer (plastic coatings stabilize warp and woof before the sailmaker gets it). I''ve never heard popping sounds, unless its the sound of the stitching pulling out when you should have reefed earlier.
