Farr 63/64 Spinnaker

Hello everyone,
I have a Symmetrical Spinnaker that is off a Farr 63 and is 3/4 oz or .75 ounce. The sail is in lightly used condition and is very crispy and crinkles nicely. The corner rings have been cut off (would require new nylon webbing) and the glue on the corners has yellowed. PM for pictures. But the sail seems to be in excellent condition. These light full/deep spinnakers are rarely used when racing except is very light conditions, but are replaced every couple seasons to be as competitive as possible. So it has probably spent most of its life in the sail bag.

The Luff/Leech are 80 feet 3 inches and the foot is 27 feet 6 inches.

This would be a great opportunity for a re-cut. Have the sail measured and graphed digitally by a sail designer and then have the sail designer mark out where to have your boats designed spinnaker cut from out of this sail. I have seen nice reachers/asymmetricals made this way. A very expensive sail made affordable by eliminating the bulk of the cutting, taping and sewing of all the panels. Time is money and this saves lots of time.

There is over a thousand square feet of ripstop nylon by measurement. Also, because the sail has a big amount of shape and belly in it, there is even more fabric than I could measure. This material would be great for upcycling or recycling. Sun awnings, bags of all kinds, ultralight tents, privacy shades, and many other things Im sure.

Shipping would be exact cost from Seminole FL ($270 to MN for example). Local pickup is encouraged. If you have a service or a shipper you prefer, that is also fine with me, Uship, Parcel Monkey, Freight Pro, etc.

I am thinking $600, but am open to offers.
