FAQ

The Answers You Need

Severely damaged sails are those that have been infested, or have had unsolicited rodents living within the sail. If you inspect the sail and notice any kind of black or brown pellets and foul odors it may have had rodents seeking shelter at one point in time. 

Severely damaged sails are also those that have an extensive amount of mold. If your sail is stored in damp locations it may have some mold but still be acceptable.

What is considered "severely damaged"?

If you believe your good faith estimate of the fair market value of your sail is over $5000 you will have to get it appraised to evaluate the donation. Below you will find links to some appraisers that we recommend.
