If you're buying a used sail, you're better off trying to get one that is sized appropriately for your boat... re-cutting a sail can add a bit of cost, and that combined with the cost of the sail to begin with might mean getting a new sail would have made more sense.

It would really help if you said what kind of boat you had... since another owner of the boat might have some suggestions on what other boat's sails might fit your boat.

If you haven't read the POST in my signature, I would highly recommend you do so...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
