Re: New sail...new sheets...1 piece or 2?
We use two sheets eye spliced in each end. We then lash these eyes to the sail with 6mm Dyneema. They never hang upon the stays/shrouds. Each season we turn the sheets end for end and it seems to extend the life of the sheets.
I hope you didn't buy a tape drive laminate sail. This boat had a full set and they are the worst sails, lifespan wise, I've ever owned. Absolutely a horrible idea.
