Re: Battery bank problems SM with 13 batteries

Hi Eric,
I am sitting in San Carlo Mexico looking at my battery box which has four very poor Vetus batteries left. They are eighteen months old.
On passage across The Sea of Cortez last week we had exactly the same problem as you. We have been unable to find twelve deep cycle 105 to 110 amp hour replacement batteries here and have picked out the best four that we had left, which are at best,very suspect .
We were running our Yanmar engine @ 2500rpm and after seventy miles or so of motoring we noticed that horrible sulphur smell, when I checked the battery box it was very hot and immediately disconnected the alternator drive belts and turned every electrical 24 volt appliance on.
My thoughts are that we had an open short from overheating in one of the batteries and it brought down the rest.
The offending battery was at 65C and rising even while disconnected so I removed it and the other hottest ones from the boat.
Judging from the volume of correspondence in this Forum, Amels do seem fraught with battery problems, but mostly from over charging with Dolphin chargers, my chargers are original and seem fine so far. The regulator on the alternator appears to give out the correct voltage also.
When last in La Rochelle I asked Olivier Beaute should I change to AGM or gel, his response was a very firm 'NO' . He claimed that Amel really didn't know why they wouldn't work properly on their boats?
Certainly once overheated they are destroyed. From my own experience the people that I have met across the Caribbean and Pacific who have had battery problems all promote Trojan wet cell as the most robust and value for money.
I would welcome if someone could tell me other than drilling a hole into each battery cell how you actually put water back into a sealed low maintenance battery, I have tried opening my Vetus batteries and the tops are sealed on by vibration heat sealing and therefore permanently sealed to the base?
I am much inclined to agree with Ian Jenkins, Pen Azen when he says that he now regards batteries as an item that has to be regularly replaced.
On this occasion I intend to research heat sensor probes fitted to the terminals which I understand Xantrex and Mastervolt may have developed.
Kind regards,

We have a 175 amp alternator and 30 and 100 amp Dolphin chargers.
I spoke with Dolphin and they said that the 30 amp charger is too small for the bank and it probably cooked the batteries as it saw the bank as always needing a charge. I plan on having the alternator checked and then speak again with Dolphin when I install the new batteries.

Kimberlite usually is in a marina somewhere and plugged in with the 30 amp charger running.
Any thoughts on my problem?

Hi

1. Even the so called sealed maintenance free batteries need to be checked
from time to time, if they have a way to top the water (as most do). They
are in fact ¨low maintenance¨ ;

2. If you have a voltage regulator, it doesn´t matter if the charger is
small. In fact, the trouble is when you have a charger that is too big for
the bank (about 20 to 25% of the total amperage would be ideal). I guess
you have at least a 600A battery bank, so both the 100 charger and the 175A
nominal alternator would be fine

3. If you do have a voltage regulator, maybe it was set to charge a
different kind of battery. The alternator could also be a suspect, if the
voltage it delivers is out of range, (but it sounds like you don´t use it a
lot).

Thankyou Viet, we upgraded from the CQR to the lewmar delta and that was better but it sounds like the rocna is very good. We found the CQR quite unreliable.

Hi all.
We are thinking of upgrading from our Lewmar Delta anchor and wonder if anyone would like to share their views on alternatives. We have tried tyo fit a Manson Supreme which is very similar to the Rocna but the shank is too deep to fit into the bow roller. I think the Rocna may fit but I have heard some bad things about poor quality steel used in some manufactured in China.???
Would appreciate any comments about anchor types and sizes. Not going to go stainless so don't need info on that.

We also agree with previous writer, we have a 40 kg Roccna and if it fails the anchor bottom is really bad. The best is that if it fails, it digg it self in again.
We are so pleased that we have bought a 20 kg to use for tandem anchoring together with the 40 kg.
The stock is a tiny bit to wide close to the blade for the opening so you must be careful when you take it up, and not let the windlass drag it all the way, leave inch or so. But it is not a big problem.

Possible sale of Nirvana genoa furler and genoa

Dave_Benjamin
 

We are going to pull the mainmast on Exit Strategy this summer. We may replace the genoa furler, which is a 1986'ish Nirvana. While it''s in good working order with a rebuilt motor, we are thinking about replacing it with a manual furler since the entire rig will be rebuilt.

The work will take place in California. Since the foil is one piece I think it would have to be trucked but perhaps someone would be interested in the rest of the components.

We'd also sell our genoa which has about year of use on it. It's a traditional Maramu genoa. We're making revisions to the sailplan and testing some new ideas for my company, thus the genoa will become surplus.

Demonstration of furler and genoa prior to rig removal could certainly be arranged.

Regards,

Dave Benjamin

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

prop for bow thruster

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.

Good day Vito, we are the current guardians of SV Libby currently in San Diego. While sailing over the weekend our mainsail furling motor failed and we need to replace it immediately. Please let me know if the out haul motor and gear box are available as I would like to purchase from you immediately.
Please let me know if there is a way to talk with you about the res of the items you have available.
Best regards, Terry&Dena

I am definitely interested in the outhaul motor and gear box for the
main sail.
Also I am interested in the starter for the Volvo motor. I have the
TMD22B motor but hopefully the starter is an exact fit. Let me know
the part number when you can.
I have a 6.5 KW Onan generator and if the parts you have will fit I
would be interested in them as well.
How much are you asking for the above items?
Thanks for your quick response.

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
 
prop for bow thruster
 
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.

Tom,

It makes sense that you would have a Hurth HBW250 like Stargazer. Typical Amel to put a larger one than the minimum, I have a HBW250 but on a 60 hp Perkins on my Maramu. If you need spares it is now ZF25M. There is also a ZF25 which is a differnt (hydraulically actuated) gearbox.

Another website you might find helpful is:

I'm going to re examine the linkage and go from there. The web site links were very helpful, much appreciated, feel like I'm on the right track.

Thanks Again!!

Hi Tom,
Once you are certain the linkage is not the problem, you need to find out the model number.
Having found out the model, it should be on a plate on the gearbox, if painted over a careful clean should do the trick, you ask for a "rebuild kit" from ZF, or their local agents.
Any competent workshop should be able to do the rebuild, the kit includes bearings,seals, drive discs etc.
I have just had our HBW 250 rebuilt - it is now the ZF 25.

Good Luck

Tom,

I would guess it would likely be a Hurth HBW150 or HBW100. Try google and see if it looks like yours. They are now ZF. (HBW150 = ZF15M). Rather than make suggestions that may lead you on a wild goose chase the following link may help ....

http://www.foleyengines.com/resources/tech-tips/hurth-marine-transmissions-ins-and-outs-basic-service

(I have never had any dealings with the company but their website looks helpful.) Now I am wondering when I last changed the gearbox oil on my boat:)

Hi Dave,

Yes. I should have mentioned this. I have tried this and it seems to make no difference.
Any thoughts on what type of Transmissions Amel used back them?

Thanks,

Tom

If you engage reverse by moving the lever on the transmission itself, do you still have the problem? Just thinking that it would be good to try that to eliminate the cable/linkage as part of the problem.

Hello everyone,

My 1986 Sharki, Hull #142 is having some minor trouble shifting into reverse. The problem has been getting worse over the last couple years. It seems the transmission will not engage into reverse until the prop speed has slowed right down or perhaps stopped. I am also unable to read the make of the transmission on our Perkins 4.108.
Any thoughts or info would be appreciated.


Thanks Tom
