    Have you thought about re-conditioning your old sails? another option would be to get quotes on new sails from different sail makers ,then you can add color .you might be surprised not as much as you might expect. If money is just to tight right now ,and you have no sails ,I have my sails as I am planning on replacing anyway . I was told the main has no holes but the jib has one the sails are not crisp so they would need re -conditioning .

    I "do" have a main and jib that came with the boat but they are original, 1969. I've patched a few small rips just to be able to go sailing but was hoping to find something used in good shape. I've tried the used sail shops but it's difficult to find Javelin sized mains. I found a local sail maker that will make a main for 400 which is the best price I've found.

    That is the same as one of the quotes I got, I don't know if you have consider colors? Since I am replacing mine I am doing mine in color instead of plain white . I just redone my Butterfly with new sails ,you will love the new sails.
