New on the Forum, and HUNGRY for a Used Jib

HI, I am Gerd from Switzerland! But that's a while ago... I spent almost 19 years on Pacific Islands, mostly by boat, and JUST did an "ocean change" to the Indian Ocean. I am in Dili (East Timor) right now and plan to travel to Bali and later South Africa. I URGENTLY need new HEADSAILS and thought, maybe someone on this forum knows, where in AUSTRALIA I could find USED SAILS.

Or maybe someone HERE has a decent (hank on) jib, about 16,5 Meter long and fairly strong, however the LOOK is...
Here some pix of my floating castle:
Picasa Web Albums - gfehlbaum - Couchsurfing ...

I also need more cool crew! You can follow me on my couch surfing blog:

Aloha and welcome aboard!
I don't know of any used sail lofts down there but hope someone on the forum can help. You might try our classified section and post a "want to buy" ad.
kind regards,
