Xynole and/or Vectra

I'm going to ask on other sites too but,

Has anybody used/experimented with using either Xynole or Vectra in their boats to increase abrasion resistance?

If so, any thoughts/problems/heads up for it?

Both of these cloths appear to have straight, extruded fibers like glass and wet out similar to glass, though not as clear. Vectra is polypropylene, and I "think" Xynole is polyester. Both seem to be much tougher then glass, at least on "backyard" tests.
