Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Amel SM 2000 windless switch
Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
I always bought the windlass switches from Amel. They were 5-6 euros each.
It is true that UV will destroy the rubber...BUT...UV and weather is not really that good for the windlass. I always recommend using a canvass cover for the windlass. If you do, you will only have to replace these rubber switches every 10 years. It also looks much sharper covered.
Another owner bought replacement switches from:
But, you would need the part number for the momentary-on push button switch, or the specifications, which I do not have.
I suggest that you order these switches from SAV"at"amel.fr when you place an order for other parts. In the meantime, use some RTV on the rubber cap to keep water out, and think about a cover for the windlass.
I am sorry that I could not get you more information.
