Funny it would be a 235 owner that said that. When I bought my 235 # 430, used 2 years, I wanted to add a roller furler. I looked at Bacons since they are a couple miles from me. My outgoing sail was in great condition, but I wanted a sail with a bolt rope and sun panel. They had a used sail with both, but in genoa size. It was a big one. I bought it from Bacons, as they lay their sails on a bowling alley-size table to inspect and rate them. Bacons sold my orginal sail. They have a 10-day return policy, I think for everything they sell. That genoa was so big, on a post tack, I could sheet it to the cabin-top PORT winch. /// A few weeks ago a friend said Bacons had called him that his new sail had come in. I asked if that call was on Friday, and if it was a foresail. It was. I was at B's on Friday, and they had a brand new sail on their table. I help them unfold it. Thay closely inspected it as I watched....Can be hit and miss. Some say they have good luck but, remember, someone sold that sail for a reason. Probably not that it was still in great shape and still had years of life. That is rare. "Reconditioning" can make a sail "crisp" but, that really doesn't make the sail any better once it has been used up.
