I decide to use a large windsurfer sail set upside down as a topsail. do any of you know how long those sails last? It is purple, pink, clear, and yellow dacron/mylar.

They're fairly sturdy with proper care. They're not UV resistant, so be sure to cover it like any sail.

It's lasted too long already ;)

Hey, with a sail like that you won't have any trouble finding your boat in the parking lot!

I think Garrett is wrong. you should leave it uncovered as long as possible. :D

Good idea though. distinctive!! ;)
