philsboat is on a distinguished road
He probably got it cheap and couldn't afford a new one.When we first started racing we got an old J24 spinnaker for a case of beer.It was a little small for our Sonic 23 but worked fine for years.After that we got a Viking 28 spinnaker for $40.00 .It was too big but really pulled in a big wind.When the wind died it dragged in the water.We paid a penalty for flying it (phrf rating) But it was a hoot to fly!
Everything does't have to be perfect to have fun sailing or racing,especially when you can beat another boat with expensive sails
