It's one piece, laid up in the construction, with luff tube, batten pockets and edging stitched on afterwards, but nothing else, so there are no 'panels' to replace, everything would be a patch, or a whole new sail.
    I was told that the sail is made in a single piece, with the load reinforcements printed on etc etc, then the sail is cut and sewn back together incorporating batten pockets and luff tube. In this image, you can see the panel from the left forming the top of the batten pocket (top as you look at it that is) and the panel from the right forming the bottom of the batten pocket. Therefore if you put a hole in the panel, you'd need to either patch or replace that full panel. Click image for larger version.

    ah, sorry - you answered it already...

    (so, are the Severne Pro's laminated with a 3D model?)

    another question:
    batten pockets still stitched to alternating sides
    of the sail, or in a symmetric way?

    imagine the pocket gets formed
    just by stretching of the material.
    it must be a 3D preformed shape
    of the laminate then, or?
    Well he says precisely that, that the sail "inflates" (translating from Italian and from memory, more later)

    oh, that was already answered, too...

    now, im impressed, since i never liked
    asymetrical batten pockets and always
    had the wish to have them like shown
    in the pic above.
    just wonder, that this important detail
    wasn't mentioned on the website..
