Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] espar ducting


Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Eric,

In my opinion the later setup is better:

With the Air intake on the port cockpit seat like you and I have, every time we are opening the storage, we are blocking the air intake.
There is actually a red sign on the storage door to remind of that.

Also, ours has a little trap to close, in the event of bad sea (and the trap open) water could come in.

In my opinion, with the air intake in the rope storage under the mizzen mast, you won’t get the chance of water intrusion nor would it be blocked.
The only disadvantage will be the little lost space for the mizzen ballooner.
If, like I do, you have a sock on your mizzen ballooner, make sure it still fit.
I would definitely use a stainless steel tube in the position to avoid the weight of the mizzen ballooner crushes the tube.

If you process to this set-up, please take pictures (how you drill, etc.)as i am very interested (for another possible project).
Would be wise to get Olivier’s blessing to make sure the hole has no structural effect on the strength of the mizzen mast.

Sincerely, Alexandre

When I bought Kimberlite I ordered the
fresh air system. I am in the process of installing
an espar heater in its place. The ducting supplied by
Amel seems flimsy and I was looking for something more
durable, Any Ideas?

Secondly, my unit came with the air intake in the side of
the port cockpit seat. Later models were supplied with the
air intake in the bottom of the "cubby" under the
mizzen mast.

What are the advantages or disadvantages of these
setups?
Fair Winds,
