Re: shaft driven alternater Sharki #127

GrahamJohnston42 <>

We have Sharki 181 with a Valeo 25 amp shaft alternator.
It is a Type A290, this number has now been changed to 510837. I it is identical to a Motorola unit, they look as though they come out of the same factory and use the same brush set etc.

The current replacement has a UK list price of approximately £1200.00, yes one thousand two hundred pounds! So I would suggest that you get yours repaired or find a more sensibly priced alternative.

You should bre able to find an auto shop that can test and repair your existing unit.
Best of luck.

Could somebody provide the specifications on the shaft driven alternater so that I can have my current model checked. I get no output at 6 kts thru the water... Does any body recommend a permenant magnet alternater.
