Re: Bow thruster service SPECIAL TOOL

Patrick McAneny

Stefania, My boat did not have the tool, and I was going to make one ,when another owner for some reason had two and gave me one. I think the tool would be very easy to fabricate ,keep in mind that it does not need to be made from wood & metal or resemble the tool , however a bit of a cone shape would ease it into the hole in the hull. If there is another Amel nearby , borrow it to get your dimension and fabricate one . 
Good Luck,

Thanks for the immediate response. I wrote to AMEL Mediterranee last spring; the response was that this tool was no more available and I thought that was definitely so. May be I try again with AMEL France.

One of my clients told me that he bought the tool from SAV"at" within the last 60 days.

Have you actually written Amel? If so, what was their response?

Dear Amelians,
I just wrote one or two times before now, but I religiously read all your very interesting interventions. 
My husband and I are preparing our Santorin for the Atlantic crossing in November. I asked Amel Mediterranee about the possibility to buy the “tool” you are talking about , but it seems it isn’t available anymore. 
Do you think that it could be possible to let it made by someone (carpenter or someone like this)? 
How can I have the sizes of the tool?
May be someone of you has a tool to sell?
Any suggestion should be very appreciated
