505 sail for Catalina 22?

I found a used mainsail that I am considering purchasing. It is a carbon fiber Glaser cut for an International 505, but the dimensions are almost identical to those of my Cat 22. My main concern is that the sail was cut for a specific boat and I am wondering whether that might make it incompatible with mine. Thanks for any input.

Howzit Hookturn,
If the sail fits...use it! I'd get it if it's for a good deal, but I'm always looking for deals on extra gear. Run it up and make sure it looks good and fits with your topping lift .(if any)505 is a racing hull, right? Sounds like an upgrade. Good luck.

It will probably have a very full roach which may cause problems clearing your backstay.

Don't think it's gonna work. Both the luff and foot ropes are too small and no reefs. It was worth a thought anyway. Thanks for the input.

The 505 mast bends in a breeze by design. It would not be just for a stiff mast.
