Last year when I sent my mainsail to Sailcare it cost considerably less than half of a new replacement and that included the LaMauney reconditioning process, new bolt rope, and various other minor repairs. It came back in almost new condition. I wouldn't expect a old blown out sail to come back in that condition.

from their website:

Below are some average costs of the LeMauney Process compared to the average price of a new sail.
