Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] THROUGH HULL VALVES MARAMU 186

HI JOEL,

BOTH OF THE HOLDING TANKS WERE LEAKING. I AM WORKING
ON CUSTOM POLYPROPYLENE TANKS WHICH I HOPE WILL LAST
FOREVER. THANKS FOR THE TIP ON LEWIS MARINE, I WILL
CHECK WITH THEM.

REGARDS, DENNIS STULLER MARAMU HULL 186

Hi Mr. Stuller,

Having done refits on more than a dozen AMEL boats
over the
years, the one piece of advice I can give you is
that if
your holding tanks are stainless steel, THROW THEM
AWAY.
They rarely last 15 years and when they fail...you
don't
want to experience this. The welds corrode from the
inside
out and rarely give an indication of immanent
failure.

I am all but certain that I obtained the correct
thread ball
values in years past from Lewis Marine in Ft.
Lauderdale.
It's a "trade only" dealer but they do have a web
site at
www.lewismarine.com <http://www.lewismarine.com/> .
Good
luck
