Yea, sorry youíre having such trouble with Karl. He seems to fall off the face of the planet the moment things donít go his way. I think he puts his head in the sand as soon as he gets nervous about anything. I ended up using a pretty torn up set of sails for the Leukemia cup last January because after numerous attempts at giving him business, he wouldnít return emails, phone calls. I talked to Karl just before Thanksgiving and he said he could get me a new main and jib just after the first of the year. I called him every couple of days after Thanksgiving to give him some measurements and solid up the deal, Hell, I offered to send him a check and luckily he didnít get back to me, or I would have been in the same predicament as you!
Also, A friends Main (built by Karl), needed to be re stitched after about 9 months of use. Also, the batten pocket protector screws were too long and were poking through the nut on the other side, began wearing holes in the main when it was rolled up. Not much attention to detail.
To anyone out there looking at SLO for tramps or sails, be very careful.
To his credit, the first time I did business with him, he built me a nice main for a N5.7.
Since then he's failed on all levels.
