Re: Super Maramu rear bumper

amelliahona <no_reply@...>
 

Hi All:


I recently tried to buy a new bumper from Amel to have as a spare. Maud indicated that they currently do not have any inventory of this item.  I told her that my observations of other Amels showed a pent up demand for bumpers as there are an awful lot of SMs out there with pretty shabby looking bumpers.  I have kept mine going for 13 years by sanding and painting it every couple of years with flexible Krylon plastic paint but the writing is on the wall that it will need to be replaced someday.  Amortize 550 euros over 13 years and that isn't all that bad, but then again, I am used to paying airplane prices for parts where this item would be at least $5,000.   I personally hope that Amel will find a vendor and have these available again.

Re: [Amel] Toilet base on Supermaramu

Ian, I used a regular tap and die set to drill and tap the hole. Then you can use a regular machine screw. A metric tap and die set is a must have tool for Amel owners. If you want to add something to your mast or boom, you just drill the appropriate size hole tap it out and screw in the fixture. I also use it to clean out screw holes that have become a little rusty. Makes them like new. I believe the thickness of the fiberglass under the toilet is a little thin for holding a lot of pressure, but as the pull is usually a little side ways I believe its OK. I had them on as I followed your tract around South America, so they must be all right. John

Ian, I replaced both of my toilet bases with the new style base. As I recall, I could only get one of the new base holes to line up with the new base, so I drilled and tapped 2 new holes in the fiberglass floor. I think you will find it thick enough to hold the 2 other bolts. They have held very well through many miles of sailing. Buy 2 bases while you are at it, as it won't be long before the other one goes. John " MOON DOG"  SM248

Hi y'all, 
                   Pen Azen is now 13 years old and the base of one of the toilets has developed a crack and is not long for this life. By the base, I mean the plastic part which is bolted to the floor by four bolts which thread into captive nuts under the floor.
  Jabsco tell me that they think the toilet is an old series 37010 for which they no longer make the spare parts. However, the new base, part no 37004-1000, will still fit the ceramic bowl.
 The problem I have is that  the bolt holes to fix the new base to the floor do not line up with the existing holes. There are only three bolts in the new base.

 Question.....how do you get access to the under side of the floor to fix a washer and nut to the bolts needed to attach the new base? my arm is not long enough or double jointed enough to get access through the base of the locker outboard of the toilet.
 I am hoping that when I release the present base from the floor I will find that Amel have always used a hole in the floor which is concealed by the base, and that I will be able to gain access that way.

Has anyone had this problem? any solution would be most welcome

Thanks,

Re: [Amel] RE: Winter hardstanding

You might still be in time to get a space at Porto Turistico, Marina di Ragusa in Sicily for half that price for a longer period.It is a first class marina and I believe that Ryanair has just started flights to Rome and the UK from an airport only about 20 kms away and the marina will supply a taxi if you book for the winter. It is much used by liveaboards and they pprovide some entertainment for those staying on board for the season. There is also a good marina in Licata, Marina del Sol I think. Also much used by liveaboards but about 60 or more from the above mentioned airport and also very cheap.

Hi Greg!
 
If you would like a wet slip in Nettuno, SW of Rome, and in a very convenient geographic location, with a mild winter, my husband had two slips.  The smaller one would nicely handle your Sharki, the marina is gated, and there is an assigned parking place.  Winter season is Nov 1 to March 31st, price is 2500 Euro for the 5 months. i is currently avaiable, at the off-season Euro 500/month rate (pro-rated for Oct.) the marina is deep draft throughout.
 
There is also a larger slip which will take up to a 16.5 meter boat, price is Euro 3000. For the winter period, Nov. 1 through March 31.
 
Letme know if this sounds like something you might be interested in.

Thanks for everyone's thoughts on winter hardstanding.

I've spent this year in the Golfe du Lion and I now understand its well deserved windswept reputation. I'm trying to go further east next year, hopefully to minimize the amount of time spent pinned down by gales that seemingly blow forever. Port Napoleon is a possibility but I've heard that they require you to fully winterize the boat and I'm a bit concerned about pollution from the refineries. I don't want to leave the boat in the water, as I'm doing this winter, because the cost of the wet berth and someone to keep an eye on it. I'm guessing if you go east of Marseille, the prices rise substantially, which is why I thought Corse could be a possibility. Has anyone pulled their boat for the winter there? Unfortunately the pilots only talk about wet berths and it's difficult to find which places have enough real estate that they are OK with wintering on the hard.

Re: [Amel] RE: Winter hardstanding

Ian Park
 

We spent a few days in Port Napoleon. Had the boat lifted to replace prop oil seals. Good yard, plenty of services, nice restaurant. Transport is the only difficulty. Taxi to airport expensive, but taxi to bus stop at Port Louis fine and good bus service to station etc. Several Amels in yard. Would recommend it for over wintering.

And yes, it is windy - took us a few days to escape!!

Thanks for everyone's thoughts on winter hardstanding.

I've spent this year in the Golfe du Lion and I now understand its well deserved windswept reputation. I'm trying to go further east next year, hopefully to minimize the amount of time spent pinned down by gales that seemingly blow forever. Port Napoleon is a possibility but I've heard that they require you to fully winterize the boat and I'm a bit concerned about pollution from the refineries. I don't want to leave the boat in the water, as I'm doing this winter, because the cost of the wet berth and someone to keep an eye on it. I'm guessing if you go east of Marseille, the prices rise substantially, which is why I thought Corse could be a possibility. Has anyone pulled their boat for the winter there? Unfortunately the pilots only talk about wet berths and it's difficult to find which places have enough real estate that they are OK with wintering on the hard.

This time next year I plan on being in the Cote d' Azur/ Riviera/Corsica area and would like to pull the boat for the winter. Does anyone have any experience with hardstanding in those areas?
