Thanks for the tip. I know that good sails translate into good performance. I have used plenty of tired/low fit sails over the years, as well as good ones. Big difference in performance but I think I can get by with some old sails to start with - I also have some extra battens from my windsurfing sails. Eventually I will buy a good main for that boat. A lot of people seem to sail these small cats with just a good main. I just can't spend $800 for it right now.
