Used Sails For Sale

I have a Harding cruising mainsail that was made for hull #13. The new owner was only interested in the racing sails, so this near new sail is in my shop. The sail was used perhaps 6 times and is in perfect condition, with reef points, an extra set of battens and a bag. New price was $1500, available for $750 + shipping. I can be reached at
