Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Alternator and Masse leak detector

Hi  Nick,

Agree you found the "fault". 
It is the alternator.
BUT I very much doubt that it is a diode "leaking" to the frame.
It's more likely to be a breakdown in the insulation could even be something as simple as salt crystals around the negative terminal providing a circuit from  -ve to the alternator case.

Good luck
