Replace Sails

Please forgive the dumb question - but how do I replace a sail? Is the only way to give the dimensions to a sail maker and have a new one made? Is there a used sail market? I have a 1972 O'Day and...

Re: Jib catches while tacking

I've included a picture of where it is catching. It hooks on a rung on the shrouds. I think a roller furler may do the trick?

Re: Standing Rigging is really slack

The mast has been up. I've been sailing regularly. When I got to the boat today I noticed that it was slack. I was on it last weekend and I don't think it was like that as I'm sure that I would...

Standing Rigging is really slack

One strand of my standing rigging is suddenly really loose. I believe that it is the intermediate shroud. It starts 2/3s of the way up the mast and attaches to the port side of the boat. Is there...

Re: Looking for help looking for a boat!

Rip in Jib

My jib is on a roller furler and has recently developed a small tear. I'm assuming it will grow if I don't do something soon. How difficult is it to lower the jib on a furler in order to repair? ...
