Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] sacrificial anode / locking system for wheel


There is no anode in the 4-154 cooling system .I had a client put one in
and it never got any smaller even years later .Perhaps it is a good thing to
consider that less than 10% of the Amels that have circumnavigated(that we
know of) have wind steering systems .Most voyagers use dual autopilots
.Experience is the best teacher .
Do not tighten the friction knob on the bottom of the Morse steering system
any tighter than to finger tight .It was not intended to be a lock and
replacement parts are nearly nonexistent .Use a bungee cord through the
wheel to lessen the wheels movement if need be .

All the best,
