I have a 110 roller furling genoa in my basement. It came from my C250 (original sail from Catalina), but was replaced by a brand new headsail after my first season of ownership in 2010.

The reason I replaced the genoa was due to a tear along the foot incurred on the last sail of the season in 2010. I did not want to risk losing use of the sail next season, so I bought a new one in an off-season special. However, the sailmaker also repaired the original sail with a piece of new fabric along the foot.

I will be listing it here as soon as I get time to unfold the sail on my yard for pictures. I will make sure to provide detailed photos of the repaired area.

I have not decided on an asking price yet - that will depend on how things look after I inspect it. The money will go toward the new genoa for my new C34MkII (which came with a 150 that's too large for brisk spring/fall winds.)

This morning I laid out the sail for inspection and pictures. This sail had been repaired as a "package deal" when I purchased the replacement headsail in the winter of 2011. It has sat unused in my house ever since then. This is the first time I opened it up to even look at it, and I am very impressed with the refurbishing that Doyle Chesapeake has done on it. In addition to replacing a broad section of cloth along the foot (which appears to be 2 ply), they also reinforced key sections that are subject to stress, such as along the top edge of the luff tape. It also looks like they may have refurbished the section of the leech that is exposed to UV when furled. And they installed four new tell-tails.

Prior to Doyle's refurbishing in 2011, I had the entire sail professionally restitched when I first purchased the boat at the beginning of the 2010 season, so all stitches are in great condition.

This was the original 110 genoa that came with the boat, and is designed to be used with the CDI furling foil. It has been unused in storage for about 9 years of its lifetime (7 years in my house while I used the new sail, and ~2 years in PO's house due to his poor health). It has a lot of life left in it, and would be great for someone who wants a smaller sail for frequent easy tacking, or just wants something in better shape than what you may have now.

Price: $400 including free shipping to 48 states.

You may see a couple of small spots in the above pictures. Those are water drops that fell from a tree when the wind blew while I was taking my pictures. There are no permanent oil spots on this sail.
