Hi John.

I have one that was washed and serviced but I think it's a bit baggy as it was not easy to furl or unfurl before it was replaced. It's stored in a heated and dehumidifed unit waiting to be cut up and sewn into bags but I'm open to offers. Not sure there is any difference in dimensions between a Mk1 and a Mk2, although different masts and booms could dmake a difference.

Regards,
Paul.

Hi Paul
Thank you for the offer .But my wife thinks it is about time I spent some money on our boat and go for new sails.

Regards,
John.

I'm with Paul on that one. Any second hand sail is likely to be baggy and jam. When you get your new main I suggest that keep the old one and you use it to replace the new one over the winter then the metalwork in the mast does not bang about and your new sail can have a winter holiday at home.
