Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] installation of dive compressor + dive tanks position


Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Fred,

First thanks for the thank you and the compliment! Makes my day!!!

Yes my SM2K came with a box (not sure it is original or not) that allow to carry smaller 2 diving tanks (the one you see came with the vessel)
And the maximum height is: 67 cm

But you wrote 57 cm - so I got curious, removed the tank, Baja filter, jack lines, etc.
and realize the bottom was cut out.
Is this an original modification that came with the optional Scuba Compressor?
It looks very professional, so I guess yes, but would be curious to hear about other owner, Olivier or Joel could answer the question.

So here is how it looks:
http://nikimat.com/scuba_tank_bottle_storage.html

I also took a pictures inside the engine room and you clearly see the “bulb”

About the storage of scuba tanks, since they preferably should to keep store vertically, I decided to store them (I have 3 and a large pony) in the life raft storage.
(I am sure this decision will raise questions or eyebrows).

You can see the 4 tanks (2 silver on the right, 1 red and the yellow pony), fins.
in the yellow bag is the “winter” cover for the cockpit.
In white is my life raft near it fins, mark, diving suit, 2 set of regulators, etc.
On top of all, I have 1 more regulator set and 1 BCD (I used to have all 3 bcd, but was too tight and one cracked, so decided to store the other 2 elsewhere).

You can also see additional storage pictures on
http://nikimat.com/scuba_compressor_bauer_junior.html
and
http://nikimat.com/cockpit_locker_storage.html
You will notice how the cover of the storage has evolved.

Sincerely, Alexandre

Hi Alexandre,
Thanks a lot for your very
extensive and precise report about the Bauer install (and
all of the reports about Nikimat ;-).   I'm currently
making it following your useful pictures and
drawings.
Please, would you mind to
help me to clarify an additional point regarding the dive
tanks :- the picture let see on the stern part of the lazarette  a custom box for the
tanks and I intended to make something similar.
Unfortunately when I take measurements, the maximum height
here is 57 cm. A 12l short design tank measure 65 cm with
"hose". - is it possible for you or
an other member to tell me which tank you're used to
install here and perhaps give more details about the fixing
systems they use.
King regards
FredScentStone SM2K #
