Does anyone have a furling no.1 for sale that is in reasonably good condition?

Have a 1985/6 Sanders Radial Cut No 1, which I bought second hand when it was < 2 years old.  Had imagined that I would go for furling gear at some stage - but never got round to it!  Sail stored in dry loft ever since.  Still looks fresh enough, but boat now sold, hence surplus to requirements.  Offers about £180 + carriage?

Best wishes,

Ron

Think I've slipped up yesterday.  Sail never has had provision for piston hanks, hence does not clip to forestay in the usual way.  Don't know if there is a difference, but, rather than full roller furling gear, would guess that the luff rope on this sail is intended to enter an alumimium foil/track, akin to raising the mainsail on the track behind the mast. 
 
Cloth is too light weight for sail to be permanantly rigged on roller furling gear.  Could not be expected to survive a good blow, albeit partially reefed.
 
Sorry if I've rocked the boat!

I have a Kemp triradial furler from 1999.
Well used but serviceable.
Luff tape is from Rotostay so 7mm I think.
Just replaced because does not fit new Harken forestay.
It needs a new home.  We are Winchester: boat in Hamble.

(Also a pretty good No 2 and a well used No 3: same luff tapes.)
