Junk Rigged Mainsail

Looking for a Junk rigged mainsail 450 sq ft +/-
Can be new or used, with or without battons / rigging

OR information on a USA sailmaker that can make the sail.
I have a sail plan.

Cheers,
Michael

Re: JUNK RIGGED MAINSAIL

Wouldn't a Chinese Sailmaker be better for this project ?

Re: Junk Rigged Mainsail

Pedro at UK Halsey in Kemah Texas sewed up my junk sails in 2011, as I had no practical place to do it. Did a fine job, many thousands of miles on them now. My only complaint is that he used v69 instead of v92 thread, but they seems to be holding up ok.
