I am looking for a number 3 headsail with luff tape installed.  It doesn't have to be crispy but  it should have some serious life left in her.

Hi. I am not familiar with MK 5 sails. Can you send me the luff and LP measurement, I may have a #3 for you.

Hi Mike,  Thanks for responding.  Here are the numbers from this site for my Mark V.
LP - 15.7
I  - 35.6
J - 10.1
P - 30 .6
E - 10.9

I am not sure what all these figures mean.  I can measure an existing sail if that would be more helpful.

Thanks,

Mark

If it doesn't work for Mike, I'm looking for something with a 30' luff, a #6 tape, and 13' - 15' foot.

Sorry Mark I did not see your response, usually the site notify me when I get a message but it didn't this time!!!
The sail I have  has a luff of 35.3 feet, so it will fit your boat (I,35.6). However, because the J in MK 5 (10.1) is shorter than the 11.75 in MK 3, the sail I have will be a 126%, which is some where between a # 3 (100%) and # 2 (135%).
The sail has #6 tape, made by UK, Mylar enforced with carbon tapes.  The sail is generally in good condition, however, there is a small tear near the luff that I fixed with tape. The sail has a single-sided taffeta in white for added toughness. If you think the sail can be useful to you drop me a line at moefahmy at gmail dot com.
Thanks, and sorry again for the delay in responding to you.
