Re: [Amel] Wind generator

Richard Piller <richard03801@...>
 

We have had a mizzen wind gen for the last 7 years.  Not an issue with noise or looks.  The bigger issue is your antennas.  You might think about putting those on a bar between the two aft stays. Having them in the same area as the gen is most likely to cause reception issues.
Good luck.

Hello, I intend to install a Wind Generator on top of the mizzen.
Now, there are two antennas, the longer ist most probably for the
fastnet radio (navtex)and measures 150cm. If I install the generator
on the mizzen, the pole of the generator has to be about 200cm to
avoid the generator touching the antenna. Is this possible or should I
rather consider the mounting in the stern by a separate pole?

Bowthruster oil - how to oil top up? - quick question

Colin - ex SV Island Pearl
 

Dear friends

I noticed a small leak of gear oil from bowthruster prop today so removed prop and changed the rubber oil seal. Since all other seals were replaced 5 months ago before our recent trip, I decided not to replace those yet, hence did not need to drop the entire unit out.

My question is how (& where)to re-fill the bowthruster gear oil quickly without removing entire unit? I have looked at the information on the site but it does not tell one where to pour the new gear oil in. My assumption then is to simply pour 0.3 litres of the correct oil into the top of the shaft. Is this correct? Also can I do this somehow without removing the top motor and dropping the shaft?

Kind regards,

Colin Streeter

Hi Bill and Judy. Many thanks for the reply. The main problem is trying to remove the unit situated behind the cork without damaging the area. How did you do this?

Hi Peter, when we fitted new sensors we attached wires to the inboard end of the wires to the old sensors before removing them. These in turn became the messenger lines for the wires on the new sensors. I suppose tyhe alternative would be to push a stiff piece of wire inwards and use that to reeve a messanger.
I was in Hyeres last week and heard that although Amel still fit the sonic speed to all their new boats B & G basically dont sell them to anyone else. How long spares will be available is anyones guess but other transducers also work with the same box . Cheers, Ian and Judy, Pen Azen, SM 302, St Raphael

Hi Jim
 
I am located in NY. My hull # was 283 she is an SM2000 year 2000
 
Briefly this is what I have
 
Outhaul motor and gear box for the main sail Brand new from Amel never used.
 
gaeteff 160 genoa that came with the boat used 2 seasons
 
Starter motor for the TMD22p volvo motor
 
Heat exchange for the onan 7kw genset

3 Wooden steps that replace the blue steps original from amel. I also have wooden covers that replace the blue covers under the table and I have the wood insert that goes under the chart table. My boat was the only SM2000 that had wooden floors from the factory. Long story but i did not replace all the pannels.
 
I also have various relays and sensors for the genset, and a few other misc. I will try and get part #s.
 
Let me know what you are intrested in.

Re: [Amel] Re: Rear Toilet - how to clear blockage in curved pipe that enters rear holding tank

Yes, I had the same problem with our holding tank pipes too last year. I managed to free them with a combination of using an acid (guess it was an organic stuff) and a cable they use for pulling wire through pipes. This worked fine so far.

While not Italy, you might want to think about Corsica PortaVeccio.  then take the ferry to France or Italy.   It is safe weather wise as well as in general.
There is no such thing as reasonable for the summer months on the Med coast of France or Italy that we've found.  You might try in Port Napolian in France

Yes, that is my spares list, although some things have changed. I will delete that one and upload a new one in a few days.

Regarding spares for the dishwasher, I do not have any suggestions because I do not have enough experience with the Mini 5500.

Actually, I meant spares for the dishwasher specifically, since I'd be paying a hefty fee for a wire transfer regardless of the number of items I buy. Just trying to justify the cost of the wire.

I have a download of your spares list from the files. Is that the same one?

Echopilot Forward Looking Sonar

Anne and John Hollamby <annejohnholl@...>
 

I had one from my previous boat and two technicians from Amel fitted the sensor on the centre line under the small cover just aft of the bow thruster. They put in a lot of resin filler which made a level patch to receive the fixing nut holding the sensor housing. It was useful sometimes on my previous boat whilst navigating through channels in coral reefs but was of little use in currents as the hazard is upon you before it was possible to take avoiding action. There needs to be an obstruction to give a reflection and thus it was of no value on level bottoms.
It soon stopped working and although I took it back to the manufacturer a couple of times it still gave an error reading and so I have ignored it for the past eight years.
