We bought used sails this season, and have been pleased with the results. (We'd have had to sail without a genoa this summer oherwise - our #1 was totally shot.) The sails we got, however, were for the same model boat as ours. Pricewise, it was a no-brainer. A #1 genoa new from the sailmaker at the same cost as a slightly used #1, a #3, a spinnaker staysail and three spinnakers. We've won races with the used sails and look forward to several more seasons from each of them. The trick is finding someone who's boat was destroyed by a hurricane, and who kept his sails in his condo.
