Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Original Side Curtain Fasteners

Greg Shea,

   Thanks so much for the information, this is a really big help to us.   We can now justify packing the tool and the Sailrite fasteners into our overstuffed luggage!

    It is interesting to know that the Sharki was being built in 1987,  thanks for that information.

We used Sailrite fasteners on the new side curtains on our Sharki of the same vintage as your Maramu. I had the same concerns as you but they worked fine.

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Original Side Curtain Fasteners

Hello everyone,

   We are  replacing the side curtain clears on our 1987 Amel Maramu.   As the boat is in Sardinia and we are in Canada, we are trying to find out the correct size eyelets to install into the new side curtains.  We want these to fit the original twist turns that are fastened to the inside of the fibreglass dodger.   It appears that the US version of the eyelets might be too small to fit the original twist turns, but I cannot verify that.  Any help is appreciated.

Best to all Amel owners,

James and Joann Alton
