Are you the same Alain Durante who participated in the Transpacific race from Australia to Japan in a steel boat in the 80's If so, we met in the Japanese fishing harbour of Omosu where I kept my Maramu. You had a son by the name of Yuya. If I am correct please drop me a note at jean.boucharlat(at)orange.fr. I just came to France 10 days ago after more than 50 years in Japan.
My apologies to all other members for this private message. I couldn't resist trying to make sure.

For information I have an Amel 54 Hull 21 and I do not have that red stop button!
Hi Bill et al,
My 54 Hull 019 had the red stop button from when I bought her in 2017. In addition there is a description of its use and photo in the owners manual.
My feeling is that it was installed from new, at the factory.
