Re: Lewmar acrylic lens replacement on Amel 54

Barry,

 

We’re stuck in the UK at the moment. I suggest you contact Stepan at driftwood, Driftwood Ltd driftwoodgrenada@....

 

The awning looks good but I would not use the same person again on account of cost and quality of service. I can recommend Sunshine Canvas in Grenada who have just made a replacement dodger for a very good price. You should contact Michael, Michael Scott sunshinecanvas2003@....

 

Cheers,

Paul

Hi Paul,

Yes, that’s who I have on my list to contact when they open.

Are you near Clarke’s Court Boatyard, can you let me know when they reopen? I am having new brackets made here in Le Marin so as to convert the opening windscreens to double hydraulic pistons.

I need to get my Bimini recovered also. Where did you have the shade cover made, it looks good and efficient in your photo?

Best 

Barry

Barry,

 

I remember now – we had this exchange before. I recommended a place in Grenada called Driftwood to replace your cockpit screens – photo attahed. I can’t help with the hatches though.

Hi Paul,

<image002.jpg>

 No, not UV damage. The boat yard workers in Monastir, Tunisia sprayed/spilt a liquid all over my topside. The deck polished out OK but all the acrylic hatches, port lights and widescreens need replacement. When we bought in 2015 all windows were perfect no signs of any marks or UV affects, now we have streaks and blotches everywhere.

I don’t know if any Amel 54 owners have had to replace the acrylics before. If anyone has any experience with replacement of the acrylics I would really appreciate any advise. This is becoming a challenge. A have had some traders wanting to cut out and replace, don’t know what quality acrylic I might get. I only want the genuine supply from manufacturers.

Would appreciate any advise that anyone has.

Best

Barry,

 

I’m curious as to why they need replacing – UV damage? Should I be concerned about mine?

Subject: [AmelYachtOwners] Lewmar acrylic lens replacement on Amel 54

 

I need to replace all my Lewmar arcylic lens on the 7 Lewmar hatches. I have measured the outside and they tally with Lewmar specs for the size 50,54,60,and 70.
I measure the actual lens size and the size does not match the Lewmar specification for the actual lens.
Example:
Lewmar size 50: My overall outer measurements, 448x578mm. Same as Lewmar spec. 
Lewmar size 50 lens: Lewmar specification measurement for lens is 377x507mm. My measurement of Lens inside the seal 387x517.

Can anyone put me straight on this?
These acrylic lenses do not seem difficult to install after looking at the Lewmar video, don't want to order the wrong size.

Thanks
