What to Do with Misfit Sail Inventory

I purchased and O'day 39 project boat last fall and I have just recently had a chance to open up the sails and look at them. I expected them to be of no value. I was surprised that they were in relatively good shape. Unfortunately most are not the proper sails for the boat.

There is one main designed for the 39 . It's in good fair condition so I'll have it repaired.

I have little interest in the other 6. Two are for a Cabo Rico 38 which has a much shorter mask and a bowsprit.

Two other head sails are equally short but wrong color UV protection.

Two spinnakers /one asymmetrical are in very good shape. I don't own a spinnaker pole.

I may consider keeping the Asymmetrical.


What are my options? Trading, websites, sail lofts, consignment? When all is said and done, I hope to get a good 130% furling headsail with hunter green protection on it.

One of the Cabo Rico sails has a 3/16 cross hatch reinforcement and a 5 digit large sail number on it. I don't race sailboats , what is the number for? and what is the guess as to the reinforcement?

Re: What to do with misfit sail inventory

If you measure them you could try Craig's llist. Not sure if there is a sail broker that does it all online but take a look. How much too short are the headsails? A couple of feet wouldnt end the world... especially if you want a 115/120 lapper type. Sails are e x p e n s i v e.... with the measurements someone on this forum might be interested.

Re: What to do with misfit sail inventory

Sure I have the measurements but did not want to be posting them for sale here. I see a site SecondWindSails.com
Anyone with experience with them or similar.
now that you asked, I'll get the measurements.

Re: What to Do with Misfit Sail Inventory

The number on the racing sail is the sailboat's registration number for racing.

I've always liked this company and they do consignments. I don't know where you are located but Minney's on the west coast does consignments too.

Re: What to Do with Misfit Sail Inventory

Here are the numbers for my O'day 39
I-50
J-14.1
P- 44
E-14.2

Here are the sails

ALL HEAD SAILS

Sail #1
North Sails Reinforced (it looks to be Tri radial)
Furling
White UZ protection
Luff 43'
Leach 42'
Foot 29' Again my boats J-dimension is 14' so we are talking 200%
dirty but in good shape

Sail #2
Hard Sails
Spinnaker
Foot 23'
Height 42' both sides
good shape

Sail#3
Bag says Morgan 30/2 Slat stay sail but that does not mean much.
Manufacturer and # Hard Sails 5729
Non-furling
Luff 38'
Leach 36'6"
foot 10'
some rust stains
good condition

Sail #4
Baxter sails
Furling
Blue UV protection
Leach 44'
Luff"47
Foot 23' 6"
Great shape
More we about this later

Surfer
Competition Sail Inc
St. Pete FL
Beige & Green
Luff 36' **
Foot 27'
Leach 42' **
** asymmetrical spinnaker
good shape

high cut Yankee
Sail maker trade mark is a 4"x4" white square with a 2"x2" blue square inside it.
Furling
UV protection White
Luff 41.5
Leach 37
Foot 15.6

So the Baxter sail looks to be in great shape. The problem is that is that ist is a tad short and the UV protection is blue. My boat is beige with a blue boot stripe but the previous owners bought all new canvas for everything (even winch covers) all in Hunter Green. I was deciding which way to go. Paint the bootstripe Green or buy new canvas. This blue sail put another wrinkle in it.

Advise?

Re: What to Do with Misfit Sail Inventory

Maybe try sailing with the baxter before ordering your "ultimate" sail? That way you'll be able to zero in on how much area you want for everyday sailing, how tender your boat is etc etc. If you end up liking the Baxter, Have a new UV cover installed ....
Bacon Sails: Great place in Annapolis. I've been there. They have like a loft area and with a simulated halyard, they open each sail up (horizontally) , give it a rating, and measure it for you. Trouble is, I thought they just deal with sails they have on hand....?
