Re: Sail Question
Looks like a genoa. It's the sail that is hanked onto the stay running from the top of the mast to the bow of the boat. It should have grommets about every 18" on one long edge. That would make it a "hank-on jib or genoa". If it does not have grommets, but has a thicker "bead" edge, it is a roller furling genoa.
Look up similar sails on ebay to get an idea of value. Condition is everything. A good sail must be clean, undamaged and crisp, to get a good price. If the sail is dirty, soft, and frayed or has bad stitching; it may not be worth the shipping price.
Include pictures of the corners, stitching and grommets or luff tape in your ad. Measure each of the 3 sides and include those measurements. The short side is the foot, the side with the grommets or luff tape is the luff, and the long side on your sail is the leech.
