If you don't know this sailor, she's awesome!
I blew out way more than a panel (luff/leech...a whole disaster) on a sail I wanted to take to the AWT, just last week, and she did a killer job of fixing it and gettting it done in quick order.

It gave me the opportunity to test her stitching a few days later....Smile

2nd that. Gerda fixed an 8.5 V8 for me that a well-known sail repair shop deemed as not/barely worth fixing (they wanted to charge about 50% of what I had paid for in the first place). A video of the crash & damage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtcjgHY_fsQ

Gerda did an excellent job at repairing the sail for a very reasonable price. I used the sail all summer, it sailed as good as new after the 3-panel + mast sleeve repair.

Most important - She and her husband are good people to have as friends.

One of my key reasons for calling Kalmus "home away from home"

I have Gerda on speed dial and keep dog biscuits in my car.
She is a perfectionist, reasonable and a very talented person. Ask her about her Sailor's valentines.
