Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Hot cockpit

As we are using the boat in Greece where the average temperature in the
summer can easily reach 40 Celsius I found out that the extension of the
dodger in combination of the opening of the left cockpit window provide
enough draft especially when you are in anchor and the boat is pointing to
the wind. I do not understand why the right window has not the opening
capability as well.

Regarding the aft cabin as I had the experience from my previous Santorin I
asked Amel to make the side hatches to open that helped alot. If you wish I
can send photos of that. I have also the Hella Fans installed but with the
open hatches there is enough draft.

Has anybody found that when sailing in the Caribbean, that there is
not enough air flow when at anchor or beating in light winds?

Also, what are your experiences with air flow through the rear
cabin
area?
WHILE THE COCKPIT ISN'T AIR-CONDITIONED AS THE CABIN SPACE IS, THE
PORT SIDE WINDOW IN THE DODGER DOES OPEN FOR AIR FLOW. I JUST DRINK A
LOT OF ICE WATER AND OTHER REFRESHING ICE COLD BEVERAGES!

THE AFT CABIN IS BEST FITTED WITH HELLA FANS. THESE MOVE ENOUGH AIR
TO MAKE SLEEPING TOLERABLE.
