I would purchase a new / used set depending on you boat usage. Maybe have at least one reef put into the main.
Periodically I would check the sail for wear on the obvious areas. Good luck. 😃
Oh I definitely got my money's worth. I don't think the PO actually used the boat much if any at all. I think it was a trailer and marina queen. I'll be replacing the main soon, the other two are in such good condition I don't feel that they warrant replacement. But for 36 year old sails they sure have held up wonderfully and they still look great.

When I replace the main I'll probably get a reef point added just to make reefing easier and mainly because the least expensive quality sail comes with them standard. I'm looking at the Rolly Tasker sails. Hard to find much else without nearly doubling the price for not much more quality. I would like some color though.
