Sails for a Tartan 4100???

BWD

I personally think you''re going overboard with those choices. I too am a spirted cruiser but some of the fabrics you listed are really race sails.

My boat is currently all Quantum so I am prejudiced there however I would look at using cruising rather than racing laminates. Most are polyester films. Tri radial sails are great and with the right material will hold there shape with no issue.

I would also entertain a 90-100% #3 for sailing when the winds pipes up. Rolling your 135 is really not the same.
