Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] message from delivery captain input

Good evening William,

I heard from Bill that your captain is Richard Piller. So, you are in good hands.
This is the process to repair your genoa furler issue:
-Remove the stainless steel part that holds the furler at the bottom (two nuts)
-Lift the genoa/foil/furler assembly with the halyard
-Remove the 2 or 3 bolts that fasten the grey pulley to the furler, and try to bring the furler down
-If the furler does not come down, then drill the 8 rivets that fasten the pulley to the foil, then ease the tack rope of the genoa, then bring the furler and pulley down
-Ease the standing rigging (mizzen backstays, main backstay, both main top shrouds), secure the mast head with a halyard, open the forestay turnbuckle and let the furler go down, out of the forestay.
-Bring the furler to a workshop in order they can separate the pulley from the furler
-Then you get access to the famous disc and its screws
-If the screws are sheared (from corrosion) drill and tap new holes, and use new screws (with LOCTITE thread glue) to fasten the disc to its aluminum shaft
-re-install the furler with new rivets, cover the new rivets with silicone compound (to prevent corrosion)
-tighten the rigging

For the whole operation, you don't need to drop the forestay/foil/genoa

Ask me questions when you do it. When will your SM be in Bermuda?

William "Bill" Maffei bought Super Maramu 195. The delivery captain is Richard Pillar, a boat broker and previous owner of an Amel SM.

Bill is new to the Group and sometimes forgets to include his hull number in the postings he makes to this group.

good morning William,

I'm very busy today but I will answer you with details tonight.
Could you remind me your hull number?

Have a good day.
