My old H16 jib is showing its age, and then some. It was already old before it got oldthe duct tape patching (prior owner) is especially remarkable... Needing to replace it, and looking for something used. As a recreational sailor saddled to the local lakes with my kids, I am looking for functionality and price over performance. Any direction here is appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Dexter - some good sources are the for sale area here: viewforum.php?f=7

Then of course ebay, craigslist, and also check http://www.mariner-sails.com/ (contact them for used sails)

Then there are new options as well. Check you Hobie Dealer or look into http://www.slosailandcanvas.com/servlet ... Set/Detail

Check out the Catsailor store on Rick White's Cat Sailor forum. There are several affordable options. I understand Whirlwind makes good stuff.

I've been thinking about new sails recently too. If you can afford original Hobie sails they really are worth the extra money. They are very heavy dacron and extremely well made.
