Best place to sell used sails

Hi,
It's along story that doesn't bear telling, but I may have two roller furling main sails for sale. One is only two seasons old, the other is older but still has life in it.

What are the best places to list them for sale? Is it worth contacting the used sale brokers that advertise in places like Cruising World?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Being on the "right" coast, I would say Bacon and Assc.

I agree with Celestialsailor. Bacon's in Annapolis is a good place. We've bought and sold there.
