Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Santorin - propeller generator - Hutchinson belt to be changed

Hi Craig, 
This summer we would like to run back and forth in lower Aegean, through the Cyclades, and in Oct drop down the Peloponese back to the Ionians, maybe leaving Sisila at Lefkada, but not sure.
Thanks Craig for the usual secret#!

Ciao amico,

Sorry, but yes, you will have to uncouple the engine and slide it back a little. No problem though, as I'm sure Maria can do it in about 15 minutes.
Looks like you are headed west. Will you be dropping down around the Pelopenese or doing the Canal?

Dear Craig, 

Before to leave Didim last week, I noticed that the belt coupling the propeller shaft to the secondary generator, useful to have some power when sailing at 4kts or more and with the gear in neutral, was heavily damaged and close to failure. Since there was a spare one already positioned close to the propeller block, I changed the belt and now the system works properly.

Obviously now I do not have a spare belt, therefore the question is: to install a new belt, to keep as spare close to the propeller block, should I disconnect the junction, rise the entire engine, and place the new belt? Or, the belt can be assembled locally?

Thanks for a light
