Looks good. After watching you test the sheeting angles, I've got 3 words for you, bro: Spreader Reinforcement Patch.
In a decent breeze, if you find yourself short tacking up a channel, it will chafe on the spreaders, shortening the life of the sail greatly. Also, in a strong breeze there is a chance that when you throw in a tack, it could get hung on the tip of the spreader and punch a hole in the sail.
You don't want to know how I know this.
