Replacement Sail Dimensions

Greetings all!

I am considering purchasing a Morgan 30/2, whose sails are in tawdry shape. However, I am able to get some very lightly used sails from an old Allied Chance 30/30 at very reasonable prices. The Morgan becomes less good of a deal if I immediately have to buy new sails.

So my question is, how closely do the different sail dimensions have to be for the sails to be interchangeable?

The sail dimensions of the Morgan are:
I: 43.00' / 13.11m J: 13.67' / 4.17m
P: 38.00' / 11.58m E: 11.00' / 3.35m

and the sail dimensions of the Chance 30/30 are:
I: 42.00' / 12.80m J: 14.00' / 4.27m
P: 36.85' / 11.23m E: 10.25' / 3.12m

That seems really close to me, but I'm fairly new to this, and certainly not a sail maker...

Thanks in advance everyone!!
