There was actually quite a bit of deception involved now that we look back on it.. The boat only had 600 hours use, so no way the original sails were shot. At survey
the sails were unavailable for inspection
. The first time unfurled when we already owned the boat in Guernsey.
Basically, be got burned for maybe $3000 on a used Dacron mainsail
, and now have a very nice triradial cut advanced fabric
new main. The original owner took an $800,000 hit on the boat by selling an almost new boat to us for cheap during the economic depression. All in all... we did OK.
