Re: Looking for a used set of sails for 18' catamaran
I can't imagine you being able to get much out of the boat with just any sails. You at least want some sails off another catamaran, if nothing else
Catamaran Sailboats at TheBeachcats.com
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.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
