Sail inspections

A high-level kind of test seems to be to check if it''s crispy or nice and soft. You DON''T want the latter, not even on Dacron sails, since they also typically have been coated with some wax-like feeling material that gives as the sail is used.

If the sails are crispy, you are typically in reasonable shape.
