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
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?
