Re: Creaking mizzen boom

We recently needed to perform this task. We used a yard in Fernandina Beach Florida. They were very accommodating.

They lifted the boat 2 or 3 times and left it in the slings over the weekend so the outside contractor could do what was needed and have the proper time intervals between coats of barrier material.

If the boat isn’t high enough to be comfortable doing the work it isn’t going to be done correctly.

We should know soon enough if everyone did their job correctly. I know we used the correct product, but the prep and application is critical for this job.

Would have preferred to do this one myself, but sorry. Maybe in my younger days.

All the Best,

Re: Freshwater pump

Eric Freedman
 

Hi David,

I also changed out the Amel pump to a Jabsco pump.

My only worry that it is a continuous flow pump at 50 PSI.

The Amel pump was about 25-30 PSI.

I plumbed in a temporary pressure gauge and lowered the pressure to 30 PSI.

I was concerned about the plumbing and the higher pressure.

I also carry a spare pump and a complete replacement pump rebuild parts.

 

To wire the pump indicator light on the DC panel it is quite simple. Just splice the wire from the old pump into the wire that goes to the motor on the new Jabsco pump. The wire on my pump is red.

Hi David,

 

About 10 years ago we switched to an ordinary Jabsco model. Slightly noisier, more powerful ( we don't have showering  teenagers on board ! )  . Cheaper than the original Amel pump. We carry a spare.

 

 It did not occur to me not to hook it up to the indicator light. 

 

Both pump and light are still working.

Hi all,

Faced with limited availability (and time) at the moment we needed to replace the already non-OEM freshwater pump, I elected to go for a generic electronically-controlled variable-speed constant-pressure pump, the JABSCO model 42755-0394 (so-called VFlo5), providing 19 LPM (5.0 GPM).

I was advised by Frank in Martinique that the electronic controller of the VFlo series pumps does not take kindly to being hooked up to a run-indicator lamp, such as we have on our 24v DC panel - apparently, doing so destroys the electronic controller.  Rather than test this advice, we have done without the indicator lamp since moving aboard.  We are as a consequence well attuned to the sound of the pump when operating.

The original VFlo5 I installed failed after 12 months, but the replacement has been running satisfactorily now for almost 5 years (touch wood).  I believe that the JABSCO 42755-series pumps are now obsolete, replaced by the functionally identical R4426 & R4320 series pumps by JABSCO's parent company XYLEM.  I understand the parts are interchangeable.

I have not had any luck sourcing the spares kit for the original AMFA freshwater pressure pump. IMNASA have no stock.

So much for my faith that the impeller would last forever with only freshwater use, it seams that the bronze impeller is worn slightly and now the pump does not like to prime as well as it used to when the tank is nearly empty. Tell tale sign is that it is beginning to fail.

So I am thinking of going for one of Marco’s pumps. The one I like is the UP 12/A 24v. It pumps 36 litres per minute. Could just fit on top of the existing pressure vessel.  Retail price 571 euros, but there is a discount available…

I have considered the electronic controlled ones but think that it is likely to be less reliable, and more costly. It may be more efficient and can, according to Marco be installed without a pressure vessel. So I see that advantage, but then I read that it is better to use a pressure vessel. So what is the advantage?
 
In my book the less electronic controls the better, especially considering the basic set up, with the current pump which worked flawlessly for 16 years;  simple mechanical pressure switch, the same as on the Marco, a pressure vessel to damp cycling and cushion the loads that I will continue to use.

Before I make the order I am open to persuasion as to a better option. Any opinions out there?

Re: A54 docking plan and hull support for Keel Foot repair/repaint

Rob Andrews
 

Hi Ruedi,
We just completed that exact same job this week. Our process was to hold the boat in the travelift slings while the iron ballast was blasted and coated with 2 solid coats of International 954 epoxy  it was then set down on blocks once the epoxy had set and we proceeded to complete the antifoul and buffing/polishing/waxing in the usual way.  Priming and antifouling of the areas obstructed by the blocks was done in two stages.  We managed to coordinate with the yard a day with no other lift bookings to allow us time in the slings.  (That however was like herding cats).

Hi All

 

I need to epoxy/repaint my A54 Keel-Foot. Therefore the boat yard is asking for a docking-plan, and if we can dock the A54 supported on the Yard without the Keel Support, if this is possible at all?
I tried to find out in the owners manual how we can support the A54 on a boat yard for painting the Keel Foot (sole). There is no docking plan in the documentations. I asked SAV for such a document; - how and where to support the boat-hull without the bottom keel support in order to re-paint the Cast-Iron with Epoxy and further. I have no answer yet and maybe someone of you did it, or has the experience doing so.

Any successtions?

Re: Creaking mizzen boom

Hi all, be aware that salt accumulates despite rain and it pays to rinse all moving parts with fresh water before applying lubricants like silicone spray. It even gets into the furling swivels at the top of the mast. This can be significant in that it can increase the load on the foil when Furling.

The creaking can be simply the sheave for the mainsheet and/or outhaul. Try some lubricant. I do not think you will get rid of all of the noise because some of it will originate from lines over sheaves and winch drums when the line gets tight.
It will ensure you are awake on night watches.😀

We bought our SL in the US and brought it to Europe. Works fine, and continuously from Greece to Sicily. 

So far, changing continents didn’t affect function. 


Re: Sharki - Cockpit Table Ideas?

Marco Baldan
 

This is what I found (photo 2) on my recently purchased Sharki Manua (N° 68 of 1982), besides the original larger cockpit table (photo 1).
This beautiful table fits on the same support of the original table and still allows to move in the cockpit. It folds on a single leg and is hold horizontal by the mainsheet cleat. It is good for 2 persons.


Re: Starlink -first impressions at Malta

Scott SV Tengah
 

Same 50% discount applies in NZ until the end of the year. 520nzd or about $333 usd.

I am very close to just buying it even though we plan to travel overland in NZ for a few months and won't be using it.

My intent is to use it in the Tropical South Pacific and SE Asia next year. That plan, of course, is dependent on Mr. Musk sticking to his 2023 timeline to provide service to the islands. Further, the T&Cs say you cannot change continents and I'm unclear if Mr. Musk considers NZ as Oceania and therefore the dish won't work in the tropical SP and Asia.

Apparently common rail injectors need to be coded to the ECU. This is the downside of a clean, efficient modern engine, I guess. Good thing it failed on the way to NZ and not when we're in Papua or Madagascar!


The Volvo D3 uses Bosch injectors. The local Volvo Penta mechanic has never coded a D3 but they have a Vodia tool, at least.

I do not need to now how the motor is taken apart. I believe that they put the foil in the furler 180 degrees out of sync with the motor.

I need to know how the foil sits in the furler—in other words where do the grooves go in relationship to the furler.
