Re: Mast painting Amel Super Maramu
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Hello I bought 7 years ago a Santorin, i did drop the 2 mast down and treated the corroded area and repaint both mast. Now after those years and a cruise around the world the 2 masts still look very good. I did not change at the time the pad since there where no crack or visible damage. I believe the old pad are more durable than the newer version.
Congratulations and enjoy your Amel.

Hello to Everyone
After searching for almost 1,5 years I found my AMEL SM. Last week I became proud owner of AMEL SM 201. I am going through some repair work at the moment and look for advice regarding mast paint. There are several places where paint is showing corrosion underneath. Is it best to strip the mast to bear aluminium or better sand lightly the paint, repair corrosion and paint over the old well prepared paint layer?
Also have doubt if I should replace the mast foot pads. They look very good and no cracks (see picture), but maybe too old and shoud be replaced?
Look also for contact details to AMEL spare parts service in Europe (France preferably).
Still searching for a name, once is done will all let you know.
Thank you all in advance
