Used sails

I am looking for a used jib with hanks for my Newport 30 II. Where is a good website to find them? I live north of San Francisco. Thanks.

Good reading

Have read a few of these books mentioned and will be looking for some of the others. One that I'd like to add to the list is, "Passage to Juneau, A Sea and It's Meaning" by Jonathan Raban.
