MFA PIRANHA
« on: August 17, 2019, 12:15:25 PM »

A long shot, I know, but does anyone have an unloved / unwanted / damaged MFA Piranha which I could buy, please? All I need is the top (cockpit) section as mine has been seriously damaged and is beyond repair but I will buy a complete boat if necessary.


Thanks, David.

Thanks Klunk. I've emailed MFA but would be surprised (and delighted) if they still have stock. I'll post the results when I hear from them but in the meantime - still seeking.

Thanks boaterjim but making one is beyond my capabilities and also I want to keep the boat looking original.
Still seeking.

Thanks for all of your replies and especially to Klunk for pointing me in the direction of MFA.


Even after all these years they still sell a replacement top section for Piranha so my order has been placed and problem solved.


Thanks again, 
David.
