Doyle is sending me a material sample. Not that I think that is going to help me any. But they told me this in an email
"The ZL08 is a fabric
that is specifically designed to be used on sails like code zeros or what we call our UPS which is a cruising version of the code 0.
is a light polyester taffeta with aramid running in the warp direction and also on a 60°axis.
It is stabilized using a Mylar film as the last layer."
Meanwhile it's been a week since I sent a request to North Sail and they haven't even bothered to follow-up.
I've looked at some other sail lofts websites that suppose to be cruiser based designs, and they don't list any design similar to the the UPS or what I'm interested in. I'm kind of cautious to let some loft take my money
to be the test boat.
