For those ordering or planning to order SM2k Genoa Rebuild Kits

Mr. VIGNANDO, the original builder of the Amel SM2k Genoa furler can be a challenging guy to deal with. It took me over a year to get his inventory amounts, photos of the "kit," and price. I never received the requested detailed list of parts in the kit. At one point, I made him an offer to buy his entire inventory, but he went silent for months. When got back in touch with me he acted as though I never made him an offer. I was relieved that he didn't answer my offer because I don't want to be in the parts business. At that time he began discussing these kits. Remember, he is the only source of the original parts. I wish someone else owned the parts.

I believe has delivered parts to about 6-10 Amel owners, so far.

Your patience will likely be challenged with M VIGNANDO. I am going to email him today and tell him that I am disappointed that ordering parts from him has been challenging for some Amel Owners.

I hope that this helps.

Very timely email. After several emails he finally responded with the freight forwarder info. Tremail in Switzerland. They are not responding to my emails and the phone number is not correct on their website. I do believe it is a legitimate business though. Whomever was successful dealing with the freight forwarder please let me know correct contact information. 
P.s Bill kid gloves please. He has my money AND parts. I don't want him to go dark again😉

All the best,

Bill,

Do you know, does he plan to make all these parts or just the two part pulley?

Its the plate underneath that the drive pin locates in which is equally important.

If he's making ALL the parts I would be interested.
Our drive plate has been repaired twice but I don't think it could be done a third time.

Cheers

Thanks Alan,
This is what M.Vignando sent. 

I thought to myself there is no one living that would have 3 ch in their name. So your's is correct. Thanks for the clarify.

I just received the following from M. Vignando (translated from original French):

Hello Mr. Rouse,
No worries everything is under control.
I had an email block following a VIRUS 🦠 and a computer specialist must unblock my email box.
With my freight forwarder it is also under control, moreover concerning logistics, Trémail is in direct contact with the recipients and those who are in order with their payment(s) will receive the shipping times according to our conditions. established.

I received a very cordial email today from M.Vignando, who tells me he HAS changed the address for me and  "the shipment of your package, via Tremail SA - Fedex will be as soon as possible for week 14/22" which is the end of March.
So, we wait to see.
Thanks for your efforts Bill, he seems his demeanour has improved.
Cheers
