Re: Mainsail Design Question...

It's definitely a tri-radial dacron that I'm looking at from a couple different lofts, not a laminate. I've made my decision on laminate and I'm definitely going with white (dacron) as I don't have the green for laminate.

I am inclined to agree with Faster that I might not see much performance benefit (ie go faster) from the radial construction but what about longevity? Could I expect an extra year or two, or an extra 50% life out of a radial vs crosscut sail?
