Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Bilge Pump Quit

Ken Powers <sailingaquarius@...>

Hello Mark,

My plan was to buy a Rule 2000 and use it while I figured out how to fix the old one.  But, after meeting... (and sailing with) several Amel owners, I have decided to KEEP the Rule 2000 and carry a spare.  This is currently working well, but will clean up the plumbing.  The old Bilge pump would have cost several hundred dollars to fix, and still old technology.  Sometimes you have to change to the new technology because it's too expensive to keep up the old.

At one point, I think Amel had these in stock. Have you checked with Maud?

Ken, what was your resolution on your bilge pump?
I've just had the same issue on SM 387 (must be that hot weather in Trinidad!)
Thanks and regards, Dan Carlson, sv BeBe
Any Help Will be appreciated!
Our bilge pump was running for what seemed a long time.  So I went down to see what was up.  I found the motor running, but not pumping.  The motor drive a plastic gear that broke.
Does anyone know where I can get this part, or maybe I have to get a new bilge pump.  :)
Thanks in advance,
