Here is my best explanation:

This clue might be a double definition.

'a canvas' is the first definition.

(jib is a kind of canvas)

'hesitate' is the second definition.

(thesaurus)

'sheet could make you' is the link.

This may not be right. Some or all of it may belong to one of the definitions.

This clue was last seen in Evening Standard

(Other definitions for jib that I've seen before include "Foresail", "Crane's arm", "Baulk" and "Projecting arm of crane".)
