I have a few repair questions, so I figure I will start with what I think is the easiest one:

Is there any chance this sail can be repaired? And if so, about how much would it cost?

Thanks,

Can it be repaired? Yes.

Is it worth repairing? Not likely.

I'd say the sail is totalled. That would be a time consuming and expensive repair to do properly. You'd likely be looking at several hundred dollars for a loft to fix. And its a highly loaded part of the sail so a simple patch will not hold up. You'd be putting money into a sail that's well past its prime. It would be much better to put that money towards a more recent used sail.

Thanks, I assume this was the case.

I have another used sail with a few small issues, I will get some pictures of that to ask about.

Thanks again :)
