What are these pieces of webbing material?

I finally finished inventorying everything the previous owner left on my boat. I have found dozens, maybe a hundred, pieces of webbing. This is the same/similar material as jacklines and tethers. Lengths range from inches to about 8', so they're not jacklines. They have no hardware on them, but some have a loop at one end. Many have "doyle sails" printed on them. What are they used for and why would anyone need so many?

I'm guessing the ones that have Doyle sails on them are sail ties? Do they fit around the furled sail?

Sounds like sail ties. Use them to wrap around the boom to keep sail in place.

Yup.
Mine all have a UK emblem on them. Sail ties for doing a tidy furl before putting on the sail cover.
Mine have a fashionable UK emblem on them.........

Hmm... I guess now the question is why would I need sail ties? The main has a stackpack and the genoa is roller furling.

You can never have too many sail ties. Lots of uses, which may be why the PO had them cut down to various lengths.

Do you have those sail cars that are sewed to the sail? Maybe this is the material they use for that.

The sail ties may also have come with a head sail too. I got some with my jibs(4) when they were delivered to hold them rolled up in there bags. Along with some ties for when I flaked the main to the boom. They are handy to have.

Its an old sailboat sold by a sailor and bought by a sailor. Nothing gets thrown away, everything is useful and everything can be used for more than one thing. Put them back where you found them, you will need them one day... soon.

Seems to me I've seen you say that before.
