Re: Mainsail Design Question...

I think it's a "yes" to most of your questions... Much of the extra cost would be in labour for sewn triradials. If this is not just a hypothetical I'd suggest that crosscut is what you want for your boat.. Likely not realize the performance benefit of triradials (jmo)..
