Colin & Lauren,
I guess we have you to thank for ordering one and getting the production gears slowly moving so an official Amel bumper was ready to ship overnight to us when we wanted it in December.
I have heard of one owner who had one made out of wood, in shape and paint to match the original. Obviously not as "bounce-back" as the hard foam, but would still protect the hull and would look good--at least until it took its first good thump. An advantage is that it is easy to change back to Amel original foam when you can get one.

We recently replaced our bumper with one sourced from Amel. There was a 2 year wait for this part but finally we got one. Being an Amel original part it was a easy 20 mins job to replace. Cost was around 475 euro plus freight to Brisbane.
