AA Parts

Is AA part still around. I rather liked their Winch but I could not see how to buy it or a price.

I would be very careful of dealing with AA because my husband put a sizeable order and paid proforma. Never saw the parts and never got any replay to emails chasing.

I had dealings with AA Parts some years ago. I had no difficulty.

Val - sorry to hear of your experience

They were developing a brushless motor winch. I have heard nothing of it since then.

Is that what caught you eye Ericka

I will confess to being disappointed by the lack of response

Given I have had no reply from AA Parts I can only assume them to be out of business.

Some AA parts still seem to be available from their North American agents, Brighton Boat Works, which might suggest that they are still operating though when you visit their own website and click on a page of items, down the left hand side everything is shown as , e.g sail rig (0).

Thank you, that is most helpful

I must confess that one is not instilled with any confidence and Val is most likely correct.
and I shall stay away.

Hi, late reply ,i know, but relevant, i believe,
I have been buying bits from AA-parts for nearly a year now all good quality and without any problems.
Theyve replied promptly to all my email questions and delivery has always been correct and complete.
Their delivery time is longer than usual i.e 10 - 15 + days but they do specify that on their website and the parts do have to come from Italy.

I know this is only my experience but it is recent
