rgscpat is on a distinguished road
Some places sell used sails in various conditions but much less expensive than new sails. Typically, they're rated 1 to 10, with 10 being new. For line (running rigging), a huge enemy is sun, and another is friction and chafe. Lines that are clean and given some protection from the sun can give you more service. Sometimes reversing the lines end-for-end might "freshen" them a bit by rotating wear spots.
