Re: Mainsail Design Question...
the one thing I have noticed with my older sails which are all Dacron warp drive cloth and tri radial construction is that the first thing to go is the leach. the sails seem to get stretched there first. they were used for racing only. and are still not that bad but not good for racing. I would not buy one for cruising, to expensive and need to be handled with care. go with a cross cut and a good grade of dacron. up grading the cloth will cost more but not as much as the tri radial cut. and will last a lot longer
