My bad, I neglected to say that my intent is to use them for racing.
So the theme is that they are great sails, but they need to be cared for well and won't last long. One of my questions for the guy who quoted them is how many hours of useful life I can expect, so I see the answer will be not many.
The existing sails are 7 year old Pentex laminates, and I was planning to keep those for practice and cruising.
Are these comments generally for any racing sails like the Ullman and UK Halsey as well, or is the frailness specific to 3DL?
