Sail replacement will depend on Manufacture, Design and materials used. Estimate between 5 and 8 thou USD.
"- is it TRUE that a 440 came from the factory with none of the equipment
needed for a flying headsail?" by Head
sail I assume you mean Gennaker / A-symetric not Furling Genoa
. This was a customer ordered Option.
, do you have a bow sprit installed or not? The Bow sprit cost me 2.5K USD to have supplied and fitted to my L450 after market. Then you need Halyard
and running rigging
If you have no bow sprit look at Parasailor as an alternative would then be competitive in price
with an A-Sail / Gennaker and Bow sprit and rigging.
Cone clutches are not an issue, just have them lapped, clearance set and good to go.
I currently own a L421 with SD40
and L450 with SD50.
SD 40's lapped (due to slipping) at 500, 1500 and 3,200 hours so far (its a charter
boat) SD50's I had lapped at 450 hours (No issue at that point done as preventative maintenance) now at 650 hours.
Cost me an extra $ 500 USD for both motors, done during normal engine service
My pricing is based on converted Oz Dollar quotes and bills.
L440 is a very nice boat good luck with the purchase
, hope this helps some.
