Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Repower

Yes, Alan...

But, for those mechanics that may repower your Amel and for those who do not understand what Mr. Amel wanted, think of this:

When you are repowering your Amel with a C drive, where are you going to place that "shaft anode" (the one that normally protects the engine and transmission from electrolysis)? Think about it.

Best,

Bill

It would mean that the electrical system is not isolated..this an Amel principle to minimise galvanic corrosion

All the battery negative connections in Amel boats are isolated from the ground connected to the anodes.
All metal connections in contact with saltwater are connected to the anodes (ground) and NOT connected to the battery negative
DO NOT CONNECT THE BATTERY NEGATIVE TO THE ANODE GROUND CIRCUIT
