Hi, Hope someone in Perth can help out. I'm on the scrounge for a mainsail for an MB24. 8.5m or less Luff, 3.0m or less foot - loose or otherwise.
Name your price or poison. Can collect from anywhere.

My standards are low. One without tears in it and that hadn't been left tied to the boom for a couple of years would be a good place to start.....

Thanks,

Way down the bottom of the page, the penultimate sail, a SobM1 mainsail whatever that is. $300
Ebay usually has a selection of used sails, and they can all be delivered.

Great pick-up. Assume you meant to put the below link in. It is a J24 main probably made by Sobstadt and perfect match luff and foot size wise. So there are probably numerous other j24 mains out there for sale which could suit. Be careful of luff round - with the j24 fractional rig the mast bend will be more than your MB24 masthead (assume it is masthead) and so the luff round cut into the sail could be a bit much - resulting in too full a sail especially off the luff when hoisted on your mast. You can have this altered but at extra $s.

Cheers. That looks the goods. It is fractional so could accommodate a bit of bend I think.

Along with the Etchell mainsail - I have a cruising mainsail off a 25ft cruising boat - fully batterned, one set of reefing points. approx 7.8m hoist, 3m boom. It's not a race sail - but good for cruising. Situated Wangara WA
