Question Starwind 223

If anyone has any advice on replacing an original Starwind 223 roller furling I would love some advice. Mine has separated and I don't think it's repairable. I have it of the boat and have measured it but I'm not finding an exact match. Any pointers?

Re: Starwind 223

You needn't find and exact match, any sail with dimensions up to within a few inches of your measurements (but not over) will probably do. You also need to be sure that you have the right diameter luff tape to fit into the furler slot, probably a #6 but check to be sure.

There are several sites with sail/rig dimensions listed, and many used sail sites where you can shop by dimension. Nowadays things get shipped anywhere...
