Re: Mystery Conduit
Yes, the conduit was for a SSB installation. Amel did some very nice things to aid in after-factory SSB installs. This was one of them. The addition of the dynaplate on the rudder is another plus saving the owner a ccost of a haul-out for an SSB installation. If you were to run your antenna cable from the radio to the auto-tuner in the same conduit as your other electrical wires, the power of the radio will cause EMI and play havoc with your onboard electronics. Ask, me how I know this J

Pretty sure the conduit was for the SSB connection from the nav station to the tuner.
The outlet is for a dedicated 24 volt dinghy inflation pump. Amel took two 12 volt pumps, wire tied them together and supplied a 'Y' tube/pipe to join them. I was told never to use with the drive engine or the battery charger on as the pump does not like more than 25 volts.
Good luck with your refit, Joel
