Need to buy sails.

Hi working on my sailboat I received as a gift but the sails were no good. Does anyone know where I can order some either custom or pre designed sails in SWFL. I have a Irwin 26 ft sloop with a yanmar added in. I don't know if that added weight needs to be noted. Also new to maintaining it but the cable to the swing keel I believe I would like to replace. Any difficulties associated, like fiberglass needing to be pulled up for something like this. It works I just don't trust a 37 year old boat. other then that it's solid clean and runs well. Thanks for advice. All stainless steel and parts seem to be new or at least modern standards for attachments. I have a 3k budget.

Re: Need to buy sails.

Bacon sails in Annapolis would be a good place to start however according to sailboatdata.com there is no such thing as a Irwin 26.

Re: Need to buy sails.

There is Second Wind Sails in Ft Laud and I believe a used sail loft in Tampa. Might want to Google some

Re: Need to buy sails.

Also try Atlantic Sail Traders Atlantic Sail Traders - Used sails, New sails, Sail Broker

Most of the sellers listed list their used inventory by luff length, so you should learn what the requirements of your boat are.
