Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Amel Sloop

I think we saw this boat sitting in a marina in the Chesapeake as we were passing by. It made me do a double take, and was seriously ugly, as well as poorly maintained. Unless there are more than one of these, it had to be it. Couldn't give it to me.

Hi Bill,

:-)  We found the heat is reduced … marginally…. when the faux teak gets too tired to grip my soles, I’ll find a white product for the side decks.  Today, I got some real hot “foot” while hot footing it barefoot in the Majorca sun…

I am sure it is not the only thing that we don't agree on...and I am sure that you are not the only one that disagrees with me.

Last time I checked we were not running a contest here.

BTW, I do agree with you on white deck stripes and since my brown needed freshening up, we now have white faux caulking between our faux teak boards on our faux teak deck, on our REAL Amel Super Maramu.

Hi Gang ,

I don’t fully agree with Bill R on this.  We are not talking about a religion but a boat.

One good thing to think about is the “bone standard” shaft drive.  The rest is hohum!..

She’ll be cheap unless the “one born every minute” shows up.

I assume that anyone looking to buy an Amel, would never, ever buy this boat, but if you are looking for a Hunter, it may be the perfect boat.

Here is something to stir the pot a little. My friend passed this link along to me. This owner even went as far as changing the C drive to a 8 degree shaft when re-powering. I want to apologize in advance if this offends anyone or has no place being on this forum.
