Find Used Sail

for Your Boat

Enter your Boat Brand

Enter Boat Type: Examples: Catalina 400, lapworth 36, Cal 40


Find used sails that fit your boat from multiple vendors, explained in terms that relate to your boat. Just enter the brand of your boat, pick the specific boat from the list, and the type of sail you are interested in. The next page will list sails that might fit the boat you have selected. Calculations are made, such as %LP and percent of maximum as appropriate so you can see easily which sails might be of interest.

The sails listed here are from these US vendors: Bacon, North, Pineapple, and Minneys. I will add vendors as I get a personal recommendation and know they are reliable. You can click on the sail you are interested in and I will email you the contact information. I do not have a mailing list and do not save your email address. I make no money on this service, it is just a service for the boating community.

Enter the sail type you are interested in as well as your boat brand in the form at the top of this page. If your boat is not listed, try entering just part of the name. For example, enter CAL instead of California. If your boat is still not listed, click on 'BOAT' and enter your dimensions on the next page.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
