Replacing a sail

My wife and I are new to the sailing community and have just purchased a 1970 Morgan 28, in very nice condition. We do have two major projects that we would like to tackle over the nexy year and would appreciate some advice. Ths boat currently has a torn Genoa sail that we would like to replace with a Jib sail. Can you advise on whaere we should purchase one?
A;so we would like to paint the top side of the boat. Can you advise a good site to give us some guidance on how to do this and what type of paint to use?

Thank you

Re: Replacing a sail

If you want to buy local I am buying my new sails from Mack Sails,

Mack Sails Sailmakers for mainsails, headsails, genoas, spinnakers, lazy jacks

Good prices, good service. Bought my first sail from them 35 years ago.

The water is always bluer on the other side of the ocean.

Re: Replacing a sail

masthead sails in st pete will set you up in an inspected and repaired sail cheaper than you think. Theyre on 1st ave s. Also ullman sail in same location. Ive sent plenty of people there and all were happy with purchases. Ive purchased used sails there also.
