Default Equipment damage from over - downhauling?

Hello again,

Looking back over the last coup[le of years, I now know that I have probably not been downhauling my sails enough.

Roger your description of looking to see how far forward leech looseness extends in the upper sail panels drove this point home for me.

Using a downhaul crank has helped me get the proper amount of downhaul.

So, here's the question... if I should err and put on too much downhaul, I realize that the sail will likely underperfom (unless approaching overpowered conditions), but, is there rick of damage to the mast or sail from too much downhaul?

Thanks in advance,
