Well it's been a while before I had a chance to update you on this used sail I got but better late than never.
First off, very happy with the sail!!! the moderate soil came out like a charm and to be honest it almost looks like a new sail. I don't know if I got lucky or not with this sail as it's my first used sail purchase
. Once i got the sail I located a few numbers near the head
and called Mack sails to find out what they signified. Turns out the sail was made in 2001 and according to the Mack rep, they only use the best cloths for all their sails (bias of course..lol)
The sail performs 10 times better than my old one!! And after having sold my original for 150 I was only 500 out of pocket for this sail. Some of you said to look into a new sail at lofts such as Lee Sails but they wanted $3000.
The only complaint that I have is that it took a few tries for them to send the battens. But after I called and they realized what happened, they expressed ship them to me right away.
So again, not sure if I was lucky or not with this sail, but two thumbs up for Bacon Sails!!!
