Looking for a Super Maramu to buy

fmuslu <fatihmuslu@...>
 

Dear Owners,

I am currently looking for a Super Maramu or Super Maramu 2000 to buy.

My budget forces me to buy a boat which is built between the years 1997 and 2001. I prefer a boat which is well maintained and in good condition. Location of the boat is not a problem except far east, so Mediterranean, Europe, US or Carribean is fine.

If anyone is interested in selling please send me a private email.

Regards
Fatih

Hi Barry,
How am I? Cold, cold cold!!!!!!!!! I am going to have to break the ice from around the boat when I go tomorrow, but thank's for asking.
 
Typical comsumption is one thing but it may not be the maximum current that the switch would have to handle in heavy weather, just when you don't want it to fail.  I looked at the max output of our course computer ( 20A from memory) and used that as the minimum rating for the switch.  25A gives me a safety margin and wouId allow me to fit a slightly more powerful course computer in the future if needs be.
I  cannot see any reason to add more complexity by using relays, just more stuff to go wrong.
On our Raymarine control the rotary and linear drives are on the same setting in the setup menu so I only have to use the changeover switch, nice and simple.
I always put the pilot on Standby before changeover.
 
Regards
Graham

Hey Graham, how are you? Thank you for your reply, I am in Australia and wanted to use a suitable 6 pole switch and without any relays. My system is 24 volt and the wattage in the specs say typical consumption is 66 – 96 watts (or 100 watts), divide that by 24volts = 4.1 amps. I figured a good heavy duty switch capable of at least 10 amps would suffice, do you agree?

Hi Barry,
I have just done the same installation on our Sharki.
I installed a 25A switch as we are on 12v and the course computer can supply a constant 20A. Blue Sea supply the switches at crazy prices but you will find the same ones listed on the RS Components website at a fraction of the cost. I seem to recall mine was around £40.
I can probably find the part number if you would like it.

Hi Guys, Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year to you all. I am currently installing a Raymarine Linear drive unit to my existing Auto Pilot system. I have the original Rotary drive installed in above the Galley and the new Linear unit currently being installed in the aft cabin. I have replaced the existing quadrant for another from Amel to accommodate the new drive. All looking pretty good so far however, I need to know the switch to use so as to switch alternatively between the two drive units. I am guessing here by using a single DPDT heavy duty switch of 10amps should suffice. One side positive 24VDC switching between either drive, the other side 12VDC switching between either clutch. Any comments would be appreciated. Cheers.

Kent you have the colors correct. The power to the charger comes from the panel inside the cabin. I hope you got a smart charger of at least 10%+ of the battery bank. I'd strongly suggest a separate inverter with its own breaker connected to the 24 volt batteries of 1800 to 2500 watts.

Getting into the batter crib you may want to drill a new hole of the new wires and the seal it.

A 12volt charger is a good idea but be sure it has its own breaker. That there are one way diodes in the alternator and charger internals so you do not blow them all when charging or when running the motor.
Happy Holidays.

Hi all,
I had to replace my battery bank b/c of a failure in my Heart Interface charger/inverter. I also had the backup charger fail last year and had just purchased a new one which I was getting ready to install when the Heart failed. I'm now working with guy who is trying to help me install the new backup charger to the new battery bank, but he is unfamiliar with European vs US 220v input. The new charger input posts say "Hot", "Neutral" and "Ground". Do we hook up the input brown wire to "HOT", the blue wire to "Neutral" and the green/yellow one to "ground"? If not, what is the proper connection method?

Thanks for your quick replies. I'm without a charger now.

I was also going to hook up one output from this new charger to the 12v start battery. The chase where all wires lead to the battery bank is sealed with some kind of very stiff sealant so no wires can be run directly to the battery. Is it OK to connect the charger to one of the starters instead? If not, any suggestions?

Beautiful drawings of YOUR Amel yacht!

Amel Salvagny
 

Dear all,

One of my friends, Flemming Hansen, is a retired artist and passionate sailor (X-Yacht, not Amel). He is offering to make a drawing of your Amel yacht weather it is a Santorin (like mine), Super Maramu, Maramu, Amel 54, Sharki etc.

I gave him the Amel drawings of my Santorin and he did this amazing drawing on the computer and delivered it in PDF-format so it is easy to print or mail or just use as background on your computing device, whatever is may be.

He will take individual differences into account like colour on boat, sails, flag, name on the sails, colour of sprayhood, arc, davits, dinghy or whatever you have added or modified on your boat.

If you are interested in buying a drawing of your Amel yacht, Flemming offer to draw your yacht for GBP 80 (for yachts over 50 feet) or GBP 67 (for yachts under 50 feet). You must give details on you yacht and will thereafter receive a PDF as proof. When you and Flemming agrees that the drawing is fine you will receive the final PDF.

If you are interested in a drawing then have a look at (page is in English):

www.sejlernyt.dk/amel.html

I must underline that I have absolutely NO commercial interest in Flemmings drawings but would like to support him and recommend his really nice drawings - maybe a great Christmas Present?

Best regards,
Lars
Santorin Salvagny, currently lying in Gilleleje, Denmark
(It is currently freezing 8 degree Celcius below zero - had to empty all tanks, tubes, plumbing etc. Listen to my advice: Stay in warm waters!)

Sorry I was late posting a photo and many thanks to Peter Pappas for it. I put it in "MOON DOG photos" We had 2 photo albums, hence the problem in posting. You can see from the photo how simple it will work. The clamp is tightened around the tubing, close to the motor. Then the 4 screws are then tightened to cause a wheel pulling effect against the bottom of the motor. As most of us have struggled to separate the tubing from the motor it never dawned us us to visit our local machine shop and have a tube puller made. Leave it to Amel to come up with the solution. Plenty of grease is the answer. John "Moon Dog" SM 248

Subject: [Amel] Bow thruster removal kit






This picture was sent to me from my friend Peter Pappas, who ordered the
tool from Amel.
It seems that Amel has "invented" a devise to extract a stuck bow thruster.
Looking at it, I can only say, "Why didn't I think about making a tool like
that?" John "Moon Dog" SM248


Re: Onan MDKAV 7kW 1999hrs Stops unexpectedly: no error code

Drew,

The water flow situation that the others have discussed will cause an error code, so I am not sure if that is your problem. However, check this for information about the water flow sensor:

I believe that if you are not getting an error code, the cause could be a intermittent loss of 12vDC to the Onan. The Yanmar will continue running with an intermittent loss of power, but not the Onan. This will cause an immediate shutdown without an error code. That is the easy part. Tracing the place will be the hard part. If I were doing it, I would probably follow this routine (Use CorrosionX or similar at each connection throughout the process):
1.) Check the battery connections.
2.) Check the 12 volt breaker on the Onan control panel as well as the Emergency Stop switch located either above or below the 12v breaker. Disconnect the battery and use an ohmmeter while switching on/off to see if there is possibly a break in continuity.
3.) Search for any loose connection throughout the inside of the control panel in and around the logic board
4.) Remove and clean the remote start connection and the other 10 pin connection just above it, inspect and use CorrosionX
5.) Check the + and - 12VDC connection points on the left side facing of the Onan. Open the case and check these inside as well as outside.
6.) Lastly, it might be a good idea to change out both the negative and the positive start solenoids. I believe these can be a source of intermittent voltage loss. If you cannot change them be sure to check the low amp and high amp connections on each using CorrosionX

One other thing, I just arrived in Houston and the book that was supposed to be sent to you is still here. I will send it to Nashville in a few days, unless you want it sent elsewhere. Let me know...

Hope all of this helps...let me know what you discover.

We're currently anchored off Ko Lipe in Thailand. It's hot, 90F+ and we're having trouble getting our Onan to run for longer than 30min. I've replaced the impellor, zinc, checked the heat exchanger, and everything seems fine, except it simply quits; no error code; will
restart easily, but then quits again after 15-30min. There is plenty of water coming out the exhaust and good suction on the seawater intake (I can close the sea-chest and pull from a large bucket of fresh water, so I can feel the suction.)
When the generator is working, it delivers 230V, 50.4Hz and I'm not drawing more than 20A while charging.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
Drew
