Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] SHARKI furling motor


Fisher, Thomas W.
 

Roy,

There are a couple of ways.

Check the specs on the motor.... that's out.
Check if any of your batteries are wired in series or if you have any form of 24V power source on your boat.
There is a wiring diagram for the Sharki. Contact Amel and they will send it to you. They might even be able to answer your questions over the phone if you get the correct person.
I would think a repair shop would be able to tell as well but they might have to tear it apart first. I'm not sure about that. The Original motor on mine still worked but I had it overhauled (new brushes, etc. ) It was no problem to have done.


Good luck!!

Tom

Tom,

I hate to be an absolute idiot, but do you know of a means by which one
can be sure?

I know mine is 12volt. Most likely yours is!! It should be controlled
through a set or relays in the slide door storage, port side in the
Vberth.

Tom,

I intend to continue to use the electric furler once I resolve the motor
issue. I didn't check the voltage on the unit. I assume it is 12 volts.
Is that correct or is it 24 volts? Anything you can offer is greatly
appreciated. Thanks.

Ron,

If your going to keep the electric furling unit. You might want to check
the seals on the gear box. At least the small one on the drive shaft.
The whole unit is surprisingly easy to disassemble. The seals are cheap
and easily found. I ordered a couple spares and can easily get the
numbers for those also if you like.

Hi Ron,

I just over hauled the roller fuller this past winter on my sharki. The
motor did not have any markings left on it. But it was easily rebuilt at
a shop. I do have a spare motor on board that I looked to use briefly.
I'll try and remember to pull it out this weekend and look for a number
for you.

Listmates,

Does anyone know the specifications/Model number of the 12 volt electric
furling motor on 1985 Sharki. Mine got wet and I want to replace it. Or
in the alternative has anyone installed a roller furling unit?
Recommendations?

Thanks.
