Jay and Dale,


You should touch base with Bill Rouse, a fellow Texan and Admiral in the Texas Navy. He is in the Houston area and could guide you through the process of getting a good Amel.



With best regards,

My wife and I will be in Annapolis Wed through Fri (boat show week). We're 1-2yrs from being in the market, and would love to meet Amel owners to learn more about your experiences - particularly with the SM. I certainly appreciate all the knowledge shared through the group regarding maintenance - it's pushing Amels to the top of our list.


Best Regards,

Iris and I will be driving over to Annapolis for the show.  If there’s a get-together for dinner and/or drinks, we’d like to join in.

No problem.  JL Mertz's Speedi-Sleeve idea is a good one too as the surface finish on the shaft is really not good enough to ensure a good seal with the oil seal. 

Regarding the Annapolis Boat Show, we will definitely be at the show but we are not sure if we will taking Cara or just driving.  It's such a zoo around there at that time and we can't take the days off work to get there early enough to be ensured of a decent anchoring spot.  Definitely let me know what the plans are as they develop!
