Check out my write-up on building a polytarp sail for my Philsboat. You can find it at http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Michalak/files/Balanced%20Lug%20Notes%20and%20Ideas The file is called Lug Rig(2).pdf
That sail is now onto it's fifth season. Last year I spent a couple of hours strengthening it by sewing the seams with fishing line. Other than that I've done no maintenance. The light flexible battens are the secret. They prevent the sail chafing against the mast and by preventing billowing, maintain good sail shape without the incredible luff tensions required in a standard lug sail.
