Hi .....I have what i think is a tri hull AMF sailboat its aprox 8 ft long. I  was wondering if any one knows about them and if so where can i get my parts. it doesnt have a sail or mast. Its become a glorified swim platform

So. is there some kind of manufacturers stamp that says it was from AMF?
More information is needed. Do you have some photos?

I dont have any pictures but i will get some this weekend. It has a sticker on both rear pontoons that says amf. Its basically 3 fibreglass pontoons with the middle one set further ahead and theres a mesh canopy holding it all together. I have the rudder but nothing else.

select 'additional options...' and you should be able to upload. Look forward to seeing what you have. If you have any more problems with this, let me know.

Here's for sale in Canada:

Are you sure there is no manufacturers information on it anywhere?

Remotely possible that someone still makes these things. The rudder looks very much like the one on the Laser.

Wow i'm impressed......I emailed the seller of the one you came across and i'm waiting for a response. There is a sticker on the left side of the frt pontoon and it says .....INTERNATIONAL below that it says TECHIC VOILES in big letters it  has I T V accross the sticker and at the bottom it says 74000 ANNECEY but i thought this sticker was just an after market sticker that someone pasted on it. Can you tell me how tall the mast would be on a 13 foot boat like this?

Techic Voiles is a French sailmaker I believe. This thing seems like it is from France. (not just French Canadian) If I were you , and had interest in actually trying the sail this thing ina way that it was intended, I'd buy the entire assembly form this guy in Canada, and then you 'd have spare parts for life.  Very unlikely you will be able to buy a new rig/sails etc.  for anywhere near what this guy is charging for the whole boat.
