Any second hand sails?

Postby Otter » Tue Jan 30, 2018 8:46 pm

Hi there,

I have just had a proper look at the mainsail that came with Gandalf. It is in a bad shape and could do with replacing, I was wondering wether anybody had a spare sail that they would consider selling or knows of someone selling one.

Many thanks,

Otter

Can't help you there, but I replaced mine about three years ago (old ones sold!) by Jeckells Sails in Wroxham. Not too expensive and they have the pattern.

Hi Simon,

Thank you for your advice I will get a quote from Jeckells, I have emailed north sails and kemp sails for a quote. However the rigging needs replacing as do the gunwales and I need an outboard, so I want to find the best priced (cheapest) sail available! Having said that I do want I decent sail as I prefer not to use the outboard and would like Gandalf to perform as best as possible.

Thanks again for your help,

Otter

Hi there,

Unfortunately the old mainsail isn't for sale as I couldn't afford a new one! I will let you know when I get a new one but the local sailmaker said the old one will only last a year at the most, so I don't think it's worth buying!

HI guys I looking for a new jib for my prelude, my jib is on a furler, the JI I have appears to be 530cm luff and 530 leech and 310 on the foot, but I am not sure I have measured from the right places.

Does anyone have the measurements to hand

Cheers

Les

Hi Les, you don't say whether you have a fractional rig or masthead rig.
I have a secondhand fractional rig, cut specially for a Prelude.
The measurements are - luff 508, leech, 480, foot 225.
Your bigger numbers suggest you may have a masthead rig.

Hope this is of some help.

Regards, Alistair.

I've given up I'm just sending the old sail to sailmaker (jeckells) and get one the same size etc, and a vert reasonable price I might add, and they are picking up my old sail.
