I have been watching the used sails lists on the net and in the boating mag.
and I am surprised that there are seldom any used Storm Stay sails or Try
sails ever listed. In fact they don't even have a catagory in the internet
listings for them.
Is this because no one ever has them when they go cruising or is it because
they aren't worth listing when the sail inventory is renewed??
Maybe there is just an 'word of mouth market' for them, ie sell them within
the cruising community.
I've contacted a couple sailmakers regarding this and they say they seldom
get any in for resale or replacement.
BTW. How many who do mainly coastal sailing, actually have storm sails?? I'm
planning to sail down the Pacific US coast in late March, early April next
year and I'm wondering if I dare try it without storm sails. (not the best
time of year for that trip)
