Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: anchor chain wash


Now I sail in Chesapeake Bay and most of my anchoring is in the mud. Anchor wash on my SM 2000 is useless. I belive that real solution is installation of deck wash connection on the bow. I plan redirect chain wash to a deck wash connector. It can be used for salt water boat wash or shower aswell. You don't need high water pressure if you use hose for anchor or chain wash.

I seriously contemplate flat through deck installation of  deck wash fitting. I see on line flat deck wash connectors are made by Johnson Pump or by Jubsco.

Did anybody install deck wash connector fitting on Amel SM?

Hello Patrick,


Thank you (and thank the others who have kindly responded to my call for help).  I think that I see how it goes.  The copper pipe is embedded in the fiberglass.  The yard is going to lay up the new fiberglass around a copper pipe as it used to be.   The higher pressure pump that you and others have suggested is a good idea and I may do someday.  For now, I (and the insurance company) will settle for putting it back like it was.
