Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Genoa furling motor Amel 54
Tony, Before spending the money and time buying a replacement , take the motor to a repair shop. Most any problem with a motor can be quickly and cheaply repaired. Before removing the motor , determine that there is adequate power getting to the motor. It could be a simply fix, switch , relay or corrosion .

My genny furler motor - a Balmar - failed yesterday while reefing the genny. I anticipate getting a replacement from either Amel o r Balmar but if this has happened to anyone else and they have comments on repair/replacement I would be grateful to hear.
