Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] HEADSAIL FURLING
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Hello Vladimir, and all the SA/SM owners potentially interested in "AMEL" genoa furlers,
AMEL was the designer, but the units and parts were manufactured in Switzerland.
I recently got in touch with the manufacturer of these furlers. The company name is VIKASA ENGINEERING, located in La-Chaux-de Fonds/Switzerland.
The email contact is: vikasa.vignando@...
The man who knows all about it is Mr. Vignando. The problem is he doesn't speak and write much english.
I asked him a parts list with prices that I hope to get soon.
However, I'm not keen on dealing parts (shipping, etc...) and I have little time for that, so maybe one of you speaking both english and french could help the owners who would like to purchase parts...?
I will revert with the parts list asap.

Amel does not have gears in stock now. Lead time now for making the gears is many months. We are going to buildup gear teeth by welding. I consider this a temporary fix.
