Cal 2-29 Mainsail Wanted

We are getting close to splashing our Cal 29. I have the sails at the sailmakers and she recommends that I keep the old main as a back up and replace it. She said that she would repair it if that is what I wanted but it is old and the fabric is pretty degraded. She felt that I would be wasting my money. This is what I thought when I brought it in for her to take a look at in the first place.
So now I am looking for a good used main sail for our 1974 Cal 29.
The measurements of the current main are:
Luff 29' 10"
Leach 33' 2"
Foot 11' 10"
The boom is 12' 6" so there are a few inches of leeway on the foot. (I am still looking for a replacement boom but I think I have found one - not sure yet)
The mast is deck stepped and measures 35' 10" so there is probably a little room here also. The existing main has External slides, 4 battens and 1 reef.
If you have a main that may work here and is in decent condition that you want to sell, or know where I may find one, please let me know.
We are all very anxious to get out on the water this spring.
