Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Onan 11 kW mdkbn amel 54

Hello Wolfgang;

On our 54, we have the 11KW generator also. The water and exhaust exit the hull in two separate holes. The water is the smaller hole just forward of the engine exhaust. It is easy to see the water exit the small hole due to the slight grey color of the water.

I am95% sure because I read the 54 Owner's Manual page 5-1 which states
that the Generator water exhaust and the Generator gas exhaust exit the
hull in two different places. The 11kw Onan has a water separator installed
by Amel.

On page 6-3 of the Owner's Manual, it states, "After having started the
engine or the generator, check that the wet exhausts of these both
appliances are throwed in the sea through the holes “D”, “E”” and “J”."

The 54 User's Guide on page 1-3,states, "About the exhaust circuit of the

I hope this answers your question.

*Now, I have one for you.* Where do you buy zincs for the 54 bow thruster?
Is there a part number?

Does the onan 11 kW splash water in the exhaust that you can see it from
the hull outside.
Everything is working fine, temperatures are good.
No need to worry ?
