Which Boat Do These Sails Go To?

I've come across a used mainsail and headsail in good condition that look like they'd fix a smaller sailboat, maybe something in the 14-16 foot range. But I have no idea how to figure out exactly what sort of boat they'd fit, or are meant for. What's the best way to do this? Measure the dimensions of each? Look for identifying words/numbers/markings? Anything to point me in the right direction would be appreciated.

(I'll attach pictures later tonight when my wife gets home if that helps.)

The mainsail usually has a class logo. Pictures may help us.

Re: Which Boat Do These Sails Go To?

I finally had some time to pull these sails out and take pictures. The one looks like it goes to a Walker 8 (even has the tiller and keel attachment) so that seems simple enough.

The other sail I'm less sure of. It has a 26 emblem and a 1531. So a 26 foot boat? Its dimensions are 25'5" tall and 10'2" across the bottom. Any ideas here? I'm wondering if it'd a good spare sail to keep around for my Catalina 25 (if it'd fit?), or if I'd be better off finding a new owner for it.

The main sail is from a Columbia 26.
