Does anyone have a source in the USA for replacement bulbs for the Amel
wall sconces? The bulbs in now are 24V 25W Base: DB BA15D with a tubular
shape (t5) 16mm diameter and 55mm length. I have hunted without much luck.
(not sure if these are the original specs). Many thanks!

sm rubrail

Pat,

I think as long as the stainless sticks out a bit from the rubrail, I think
everything will be ok.

On my last boat painted dark blue, I just added the ss ½ round rubrail to
the boat and it never got a scratch in it.

I think that starboard is redundant.

Eric, When I bought my boat it had a small section worn through by contact
with a piling , fiberglass makes a poor rubrail. The rubrail is hollow and
the glass is probably less than 3/16'' thick and then a 3/4 '' dead space .
To offer real protection because its indented, I think you would need to
pack
out the rubrail say 3/4'' or 1" inch with starboard or teak and then
install the stainless rubstrip on that. I have thinking of doing this
myself, I
have not only because my boat is on a mooring where I live and then we
always
anchor out.

Did you look above the cabinet next to the bed to see if there is a leeboard stored up there? I didn't realize I had one when we first got the boat. If the SM is like the Maramu, it came equipped with leeboards. Hopefully it's still onboard somewhere.

that is about 20 minutes from Bear , a few miles over the Pa. line right off
I-95. They will run it through a planner for you and cut it to your specs., a
little more fine sanding and 3 or 4 coats of finish and you have your
leeboard. You will also want to fashion maghony brackets to hold the leeboard in
place.

Gary= The starboard was in a large sheet and not only filled the depth of the frbg. brown orange rail with silver tape strip but protrudes approx. at least ¼ inch beyond. Seapath Yacht Club in Wrightsville Beach,NC. They bought it from PAXTON Co. 910-452-1955. You will need a table saw and we used a sears router to round the edges. We sanded all the silver tape off first then painted with royal blue awl grip. At the bow , we rounded the end. The strips were cut at 90 degrees so as the butt join. You could overlapping bevels, but totally unnecessary. We then measured holes at 6 inch intervals and beveled the holes ie-countersunk and used screw heads that had slightly oval heads and Phillips type. We predrilled each then screwed it in with power drill. All s-s screws. We filled the recess with star board with some protruding beyond. Used silicone putty in the drill holes with a small blob beyond. The gutter above the rail was left white. The short portion near the stern with lettering, we used a wider piece and beveled the edges. Call Paxton . They only sell wholesale to marinas etc. You cannot epoxy this stuff. Too slippery. The board thickness must extend beyond the trough obviously. Following this, we painted the boot top with bright red awlgrip so as to have red-white-blue. French or USA- your choice. This stuff is high density polyethylene- it’s what is used in total knees and total hips-TOUGH. Use light sandpaper if ever gouged ( unlilkely). Murray Seidel #349 910-470-1225

Hi Gary you can buy Starboard at Defender and West is thicker sizes. You can cut it into strips using a table saw with a very fine blade. It can be sanded driller and counter sunk to cover screw heads.

How did you attach the Starboard to the insert area of the rub rail? I presume when you say that it is an inset, that you used 1 inch wide strips of Starboard to replace the area where the silver tape was originally, is that correct? Did you chamfer the edges at all or are the strips (in profile) just rectangular. Any details would be appreciated.

Re: [Amel] Re: SM waterline

Sailormon <kimberlite@...>
 

I was thinking of using ½ round stainless steel and inserting it into the
area with the silver tape. One from west marine is perfect and comes in , I
believe, 12 foot lengths. Available from west marine.

I used it on my old boat.

The only reason I did not do it on Kimberlite was I did not know what I was
drilling into.

Do you know how far you can drill into the rubrail before you penetrate the
hull or something important?
