Sure no problem. You pay, they do.
Just weigh the converted sail against a new one, properly designed from the bottom up.
Mind it that not all design lend themselves to flattening (which will be a must if the hank on sail was of regular design). The cross-cut can be flattened fine, but it is much more work and less success with e.g. bi and tri-radials.
I worked for one of the companies you mentioned and we alsways talked our clients into new sails
- not that the margin is better but because the resulting sail is better.
But, off course, everything can be done.
