Used sails

I have collected several sails over the past years. I have 2 mains, 3-4 genoas, and a spinnanker from a previous boat. Which of the brokers would be reccomended to get the best return on these? Thanks

What size are the mains? I'm looking for a used main for Pearson 303 (P: ~34'; E: ~10')

But, if they're all off your J34, then I'm afraid I'm hosed.

Besides selling one to me, I'm not sure who your best bet would be.

I'm not soliciting to sell here, only for broker recommendations. These sails are off my boat and would not fit yours at all. It has P=40.5 and E=15. Sorry.

I think ebay will yield much better returns on your sails. No middle man(except for ebay and paypals cut)!

However if you posted all available sail dimensions you may well find a buyer here...... UPS ships anywhere!

Have you tried Atlantic Sail Traders and Beacon Sail?

I have not sent any sails for eval yet. I did not want to get into a shipping issue ($30-$35 per sail) if they are not willing to put at least a fairly decent amount into these sails. That could be a charge both ways if I decided to have them returned. But those guys have to make money also. I was really just hoping someone here had experience with some of the brokers and could share that with me. I think the suggestion about the classifieds and Ebay may be good first steps. Low cost until shipping.
