Sails, Sails, Sails... for sale?

I got around to inventorying the spare sails that came with my boat the other day. I am hoping I can get some input here on how to price the ones I won't take with me... Actually, I would also like to figure out what to call them.

Some of these numbers feel pretty off. I was trying to measure them by myself and it was a little windy and I didn't have a good process. They should be close- but no guarantees. How important is getting it dead right?

SAIL 1: 34, 35'6, 15'10 note: will probably keep as a spare since it is similar to the jib I used
SAIL 2: 35, 35, 18 note: was used as the foresail when I sailed- will probably keep
SAIL 3: 22'10, 19'10, 8'4
SAIL 4: 24'6, 27'8, 10 note: this one was noticeably shaped different
SAIL 5: 30, 28'3, 13'6
SAIL 6: 37'6, 34'10, 19 note: spinnaker with a 3'-ish tear
SAIL 7: 36, 35, 31'5 note: spinnaker with minor fraying on the bottom

Other than the spinnakers they are all in great shape with very beefy looking attachment points. I took pictures- should I post them? Would it help?

Hey Jack.

You might want to clarify what sails you are selling and then post in the classifieds section.

There are a couple of sites out there where you can purchase used sails. You might google them and get an idea of how they price them - pretty much it's based on size and how used they are.

Here is one site - and of course I have no affiliation - Atlantic Sail Traders

Thanks, I am even more out of my depth than usual on this and just don't know where to start.

Lay them out in the yard and take a good pic of each one. Take exact measurements.
Put them on EBAY!

How do you get "exact"? They seem to have some curve between the corners- do you measure from the inside of the grommet or the farthest piece of sail material?
