Re: Steering racks for SN, SM & 54

It would be great to hear what Amel say about this
My 1985 Maramu has the Morse Commander 401
rack and pinion setup. Perhaps you have the same ?
I took the rack apart a year ago before an ocean passage and it all looked in great shape but I’d certainly consider this as a useful spare to have in the locker !
All the very best

I am not sure. I believe that Maramus have the same rack. You should send an email to SAV"@"Amel.fr and ask.
Please let me know at email below what they say.
Good day Bill
I was wondering if Amel would have the racks for a 1983 Maramu # 125.

This is to notify you that SAV"at"Amel.fr will have the steering racks available to ship in a few weeks. I understand that they have them, and are currently testing the installation.
I would like to point out to everyone that this is really admirable on the part of Amel. When I contacted the US branch of the company that originally made these racks, there was not any desire on their part to make these discontinued racks available. I am
not sure if Amel convinced them, or found someone else to make the racks, but in either case, Amel used their expertise and leverage to support owners with a discontinued manufacturer's part that Amel has not used since the last 54 was produced. Among boat
builders, I believe this is remarkable. I know that Maud and Thierry were very supportive of all of us.
