Re: Mylar Head Sail Help!!!
The problem is that when you talk about sails of this quality, the weight of the fabric, orientation of the fibers and the flying shape of sails are precisely developed for the specific sail size and geometery, as well as the characteristics of the boat.
Even if you had a boat of a similar size, it is likely that the sail profile geometry, fiber orientation and flying shape would be so different that you could not recut this sail in any useful manner. The fabric would be way too heavy and the broadseaming too deep at the luff, and too flat elsewhere for a smaller boat. If the owners don't want it, at best this is useful for someone with a high tech sailing bag company to recycle into duffle bags.
