My story is I knew/know next to nothing when I recently bought my boat, am learning
as I go, and while on passage
ripped in half and it is now salvageable and I need to replace it, with either a new or used one.
seem to take a month to deliver which is difficult to do in regards to passage
making so I am trying to get a used one to tide me over for a while.
When I read sail descriptions on used sail websites they aren't very comprehensible to me so I can't find what I need, besides I have a 46' Max luff and 17.5' max foot. Basically I am mostly have trouble with getting the right attachment system.
What I see I have is an "internal track". My sliders are 7/8ths. These sliders they attach to a plastic coupling, which attach the sliders to small grommets up the luff of the main sail. Picture is attached.
My question is what am I looking for when trying to get a used sail to ensure it is compatible? Is any sail description that says 7/8ths internal sliders OK for me? I am confused because even ones that mention sliders also mention a rope
Would a sail like this work for me?
