Some lessons to learn from this..
When buying sail mail order (or in his shop)
-Get picture documentation from the sail maker of details from similar sail.
-Check references
-Get detailed spec

Here is a picture of my cruising main (made in cruising laminate)


Tack/Cunningham area on the same sail, the reef points have similar reinforcements - sorry no picture of those
