Re: Jib for Siren 17
That sail looks like it was on its last legs anyhow..
Even new it won't be a lot of money, that's a pretty small sail.Talk to a sailmaker, check any marine consignment stores in your area, look online (Minney's, Bacons, and others)
Not clear on what you mean by 'shackled to the mast' and needing to drop the mast to get the sail off. This sounds like a mistaken rigging setup to me. The sail should be hoisted with a halyard. Any other Siren I've seen is rigged that way.
