djodenda I've got two or three, with a total area of 700 sq. ft.

I am in Seattle.

I would want nothing but shipping costs, if this is for a good cause.

May I ask what you want them for?

ambianceack I have two sails that I will donate if you pay shipping. Estimated square footage is around 500 sq. ft. The sails are on Nantucket, MA. You are probably looking at around $100.00

CalebD Here is one place that sells used sails: HEADSAILS - LUFF SIZE TO 25'

Faster Craigslist is a good avenue for finding old sails... if you want the material for crafts perhaps place an ad there that you will pay for shipping - people are always looking for ways to dispose of old sails (free) other than the landfill.

Sails are heavy, though, and shipping costs might get out of hand.

sailingdog If you just want the sails for the material, contact some sailing clubs that have a racing program. Many will give away the used sails when they're no longer suitable for use as sails.

hiphomemaker I am in Missoula, MT. I wouldn't be opposed to paying for shipping, depending on the cost.

can I buy old sails

I am not a sailor, but I am interested in buying old sails that can't be used for sailing anymore. Any suggestions on where to look? How much would I expect to pay? Thanks in advance!
