the neutral hooked up to an Amel?
hook up an Amel to a European plug there is a blue, brown, and
and blue together are 220 volts. The green yellow is the ground . There is No Neutral
as in USA
connections IE- the white.
hook up your boat to a USA
50 amp plug. The black and red are connected to the blue and brown and the
green is connected to the green /yellow. The white(neutral) is not used.
your boat is wired differently from mine there is no neutral used on USA wiring and
there is no available neutral on the European plugs as they only have 3 prongs.
ABYC standards, I have a list somewhere written by Bill Seifert who was the
project Manager of The Tartan Factory, The J Boat factory, and finally the
Alden Factory, listing the factors that do not allow the Amel to be ABYC
standard. The first one that comes to mind is that there is no dip tube in the
fuel tank, Amel takes the fuel off the bottom. If I recall the mast and rigging
are also not bonded, the color coding of the wiring is not ABYC standard and If
I remember correctly there were about 20 other things which I ignored. The Amels
are CE approved Group A, not ABYC . They are also not ORC class one approved unless
you have one a lot of work to the boat after delivery.

What do you have issue with,? I have a little problem with Eric saying
there is no Neutral on the shore power. Other than that, If its the issue about
ABYC being somehow at variance with Amel practice for good reason. he may not
be able to even if he were qualified. Remember Amel complied with Euro
practice. Anyhow please accept what he says as a opinion, but there would be
plenty others who would agree, its mainly related with issues of accelerated
Electrolytic action/shore power/ABYC boats.
Waverider apoligies to eric.

There is no Neutral on the Amel shore
The engine and Generator have a floating
ground. In other words the motors are only connected to the boat ground when
they are starting.
All the other gear on the Amel is
connected together with a green and yellow wire which is connected to ithe
rudder stock and the two zincs on the ruder. The amel does not conform to AYC
standards for a number of good reasons.
