Thank you everyone for your advice and experiences. I see there is a lot of variability in price. I want to go with a new sail, not used. I'll have to be careful to compare the same quality of sail cloth when doing my shopping. I suspect I can probably get a very good sail from an outside company for a lot less money than at my local shop, and with a quality company and shipping being as low as Al says, the convenience factor may not be such a big issue. I will get a quote from Rolly Tasker and contact Charlie from Dorsal sails.

Any other success stories? Any lemons?

The secret to sailing is good judgment. Good judgment comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgment.
