I have had a Maramu in Egypt for the last year. Despite tough stories
about Suez Canal crossing, the Red Sea / Gulf of Suez is a very good
place to spend the winter, which in fact is the best time to sail there.
October to April F3 to 6 in general, May to Sept blows much harder F6 to
F8 much of the time.
Good marinas are El Gouna, best place to be, with very nice offshore
islands to visit (northern end of Red Sea, Huragarda), also Wadi Dom,
about 30 Nm south of Suez is quiet and a safe location.
Maramu passage of the Suez Canal about 400 US one way, but marina prices
way below Med. once you are here.
Some agents are good, others not so, contact me if you need more
All the best, Mark Shann

I can help you at least for your first question:
What you describe here is very typical of the carbon brushes being worn
out. Remove the protection boot, remove all carbon dust in the
collector area, change the carbon brushes (Amel sells them for cheap),
reinstall the boot with silicon seal and clamp.
This is a 15 mn job and will solve your problem.
