Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Furler motors & Headsail - Santorin

Donald Patterson

The boom out haul motor has failed.  I talked to Ms. Maud at Amel. She advised me that Amel does not have replacement available for my 1987 Amel Mango.  Do you have any suggestions as to a source for a replacement or a company that rebuilds the 12 volt motors?

Hi John.

I started a new topic for you as you had buried your post in a thread about insurance which is quite confusing.

It may be more helpful if you would describe what problem you have that suggests you want to replace your original furler motors, or are you looking for spares, or what?  Usually, the reduction gears are the problem, not the motors and if you tell us bit more about your problem we may be able to offer more helpful suggestions.  As to your headsail, again, some more information about what you want to do would help you to get more useful replies. Have you approached a sailmaker about this and have a question, or what?

Best regards,
