I'm pretty sure it will repair fine in expert hands - it's a
comparitively clean break across the whole width, with a damge band
hardly more than a couple of inches across. Having seen what can be
done by way of repairs to GRP gliders, it's not a bad candidate for
mending ... as long as someone good does it. Which might mean, I
suppose, taking it to a GRP glider menders, but yes, that would
probably cost a lot more than the 300 quid a new panel costs. On the
other hand, we then have to get a new panel to fit ...
