Bacons

If you are a sailor, the best place to buy used sails is a marine consignment shop on the outskirts of Annapolis.
I was looking for a Genoa for my Westsail 32 because I have had to repair it a couple of times lately and I looked at the dimensions on the sailrite website and this is what it came up with.
So I did a search on Bacon's 100,000 sail database and came up with about 60 hits. I combed through these until I found one that appealed to me.
They brought it out and laid it on the table and I couldn't believe my eyes. It was almost new, hardly been used, exactly what I was looking for and what a steal! The only trouble was, that it was yellow. Yes yellow! Who ever heard of a giant yellow Genoa! What a hoot. Oh well. As long as it gets me to where I am going to, who cares right?
They do sell a lot of other stuff in the store so what follows is some eye candy for you to drool over.
