Removing a panel to make a sail smaller?

Hello Everyone,

So i recently picked up a Hobie Holder 14 but the sails that were sold with the boat are incorrect. The jib is a roller furler with a luff wire that i can use as my forestay so that is not the issue. The issue is with the main. The sail looks brand new, but it is probably about 3 or 4 feet too long.

Question is, could i remove a panel from middle or bottom and restitch everything back together to accommodate the difference.

The sails are from a Trac 14 Catamaran.

Thanks,

Rob
