Picked up a set of spare sails from an '82 turbo that I picked up for parts, wondering if they can be repaired...
The jib has a tear along the leech plate, see pic...can this be fixed? It is a back up, so it doesn't have to be pretty:
The rivets have popped out of the leech plate on the main, but everything around the leech looks in tact...can it be re-riveted?
And finally there is one tear of about 4 or 5 inches in the middle of one of the batten pockets...what's the best fix?
Thanks for the input, if the sails can be salvaged it's icing on the cake, all of the other parts on the boat were excellent. This is a 5 batten main with a 40xxx sail number, only about 300 numbers lower than my 6 batten main from the same year.
