Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Amel SM 2000 windless switch


Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good afternoon Fred,

Thank you so much for your very nice message.

And thanks for thinking of me as one of the most experienced…
Gary Silver and Bill Rouse wrote many articles so really they deserve the compliments, all I did was illustrating these.

Sure I made a few on my own like the windlass, Onan Exhaust elbow, but it is only because of all the help I received from the forum. Like Mark explaining to me how to remove the panel of the kitchen cabinet, not to mention Eric and so on.

If I was buying another vessel, it would definitely be a Super Maramu.
For now, I fear the insurance since I had a bad experience 3 years ago… so will see.

in 2012/13 I spent 9 months preparing NIKIMAT, plus another 3 in 2014/15, someone on the forum wrote, I would spend 20% of the boat on the first year, then 10% after, I practically spent 20% every year… everything was working, every little thing I would see on the forum I would do, etc. plus I had everything I needed for my trip (which is very different than many). I am not sure I want to go through that again.

Therefore, please do not worry, I will keep all the illustrations on.
I own supermaru.com (and I believe supermaramu2000.com) so even if I use NIKIMAT.com for something else, all the illustrations will remain accessible for all Amel Owners. And when I have some time, I will make a crude page at least linking all of them.
I might no longer own an Amel, but I can not repeat enough thanks ALL the help I received from the forum over the last 5 years and I want to continue to help.

Thanks for the offer to join you and ScentStone to sail to South Africa, I really appreciate, but I need a little time, at least a year to rethink.

Thanks again for your very kind message.
Sincerely, Alexandre

Dear Alexandre,
Please apologize if my words
doesn’t match your situation.
I think that you’re currently
living with a lot of courage a very difficult situation and
I would like to share with you some thoughts :
- I’ve already owned an Amel for
15 years so when I decided to by a new boat for a
circumnavigation project (she’s currently in Australia), I
understood that my previous experience with these boats was
invaluable in order to save time, money and moreover to
secure my project.
-
you’re one of us with the most of experience about
Super-Maramu systems and maintenance and I’m certain you
can use it now for a new project after the time let you
assimilate and analyse this “fortune de mer” and of
course let you fix everything with insurance.
- when you’ll think again at
sailing, you’ll think at a SM and you’re now absolutely
very well trained at surveying and estimating many of them
(that’s what I’ve done).At this moment, your
small 20’ container full of spare parts and stored where
you want will be a great great help and money/time saver.
Please, consider at taking some time before selling it
unless you need cash right now.
That said, if you still have enough
patience, I would like to make a request and a proposal
:
the request : would
you mind to share the magic pages on nikimat.com that you
built about many many subjects of maintenance… They are
individually accessible if we have the link but there’s
nowhere with the listing and links… Of course, if you have
any reason for that (privacy…) forget about this
request…
the
proposal : as said, ScentStone (SM2K #375) is currently in
Australia (left France Aug 2016) and I’ll take her to
South Africa next year single handed or reduced crew and
you’re more than welcome to join me if you want (and are
not already working on a new project ;-).
Good luck for the following
weeks.
