also the film sail cloths tend to lose any  benefit of their  smoother surface and  alleged  dimensional stability   when used  for jibs vs mains  in dinghy applications

My thought exactly, but of course, the mast is set well forward on the Aero, and you can see the mainsheet going underwater to a distant boom  Smile
