Used Sails for Compac 16

Sail Finder


The sails listed here are from these US vendors: Bacon Sails, North, Pineapple, Second Wind Sails, and Minneys. I will add vendors as I get a personal recommendation and know they are reliable. NOTE: One vendor is no longer supported as they have blocked me or changed their formats. Contact the vendors if you would like to see them included.

You can select your boat type from our database or enter your boat's dimensions yourself. Only sails that will likely fit your boat will be listed. If you want information on where to buy the sail, click the contact link and you will get an email with vendor contact information. Eventually this will be a more direct link but for now I want to know how this service is being used. makes no money and charges no commission on these sails. It is strictly a service to the sailing community. I do not have an email list -- you will not get spam from using this form. If you prefer, you can leave a private message in the forum.

NOTE: It is important to measure your own boat and not just use the dimensions from the data base although they are a good place to start. Also, allow for shackles, furling drums, some clearance for stretch, clearance for a fair lead to the sheave, and such. You should be particularly careful on the forestay length if you do have a furler or long shackles to not include their length in the forestay number in the table. The sails listed have been sorted and stand a good chance of fitting your boat but the fit is your responsibility so make your measurements and consult the selling sail loft to make sure the sail will fit. See the article on buying used sails HERE.

Spinnakers are screened by luff length and foot to JSP ratio. The maximum girth is typically a few percent more than the foot and the maximum allowed girth is 185% so be aware of that.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
