Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Companionway well drain


Hello Everyone. I have not checked each and every one of the hundreds of Amel Super Maramus I have been aboard for a drain from the companionway well for the vertical door. However, I know this item was on the Amel new construction checklist and had to be signed off on by the person who installed it and his supervisor.


I have seen more than one case where the drain tube was installed and then covered over by the foam insulation that was installed in the engine room which then encouraged the drain to become clogged as it could not flow properly.


Strategically investigate the area where the drain should be and I am all but sure you will find a covered and plugged drain. All but sure…so let us know what you DON’T find, please.  


Have fun with your Amel, Joel
