unused jib

Post by BrianW » Mon Jan 29, 2018 10:25 pm

I was looking st some sails that came with my boat. I bought my X 8 years ago and finally am looking at these. I have an old but like new hank on jib to give away if anyone is interested, I live in the Denver area. I had seen in magazines about donating sails, but haven't seen the ad lately. Anyone know where to donate sails?

Im sure someone on here would be happy to take it off your hands. A X jib will also fit a M, not sure about the other models but I don't think so.

You might even pick up a case of beer for your trouble :D

I've got one also! I don't think I'll ever use it. If anyone is interested, please let me know.

Gee I only ever use the jib, but then again we don't get many light wind days, my genoa is like new, not sure if its ever been on the furler but I dont think so, I might give it a go over autumn or winter, we tend to get lighter winds at that time of year.

I would take both jIbs off your hands (BrianW and C buchs) if you would be kind enough to send them my way. Mine is kind of just about done and I was just going to start looking for something else. Can you send me a message to work out the details?

If there are any extras id take one too. Since I don't have the furler I like to have a good selection.

How funny... I just logged in to ask a question about cutting down my unused hank-on jib to turn it into a solent-style storm jib! I guess it’s that time! Or the full moon... :o

Don't turn it into a storm jib. Just look for one on eBay or some place. If you don't mind a few stains they can be bought cheaply.

I don't know if anyone has sent me a PM about the hank on jib I have. I need to check that email. If you haven't, please do. I'll work with whoever is first.
