Running Rigging Part Value

I am looking at buying a yacht.
The seller states there are several extra boxes of running rigging.
Is there value in these parts that i should be adding to my offer?
He showed me one box, was full of pulleys, and a snatch block.
Can these be sold for a good price, or like the loran c are they worthless?
Also are extra sails worth anything to me?
2 extra jibs, spinicker, with sock, and a storm jib.
Been in his atic for 20 years. Storm jib as well.

Thank you.

I wouldn't put any value to those parts. Keep anything you can use and sell the rest at the next nautical flea market. If there is a sailmaker close by they may take the sails on consignment. At least by taking them in for possible consignment you can find out if they are of any value.

Every old boat has similiar gear stored and it just goes with the boat.

I would not pay any extra for any extra hardware. But I would take the box as a gift from an ex-owner who does not need the hardware anymore.

Take all of the sails and other stuff as boat equipment of no value unless proven otherwise
