Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Deck stripes

Mark Erdos
 

Maria,

 

Awlgrip has been used by others there are a few postings about how they custom mixed colors to try to match the original. I believe with all the colors offered by Awlgrip there has to be a color that is close enough. The real key will be to ensure all wax is removed prior to painting.

 

Bill on BeBe turned me on to a special rolling tool that fits in the groove. ( I could not find Bill’s posting)

 

I plan to undertake this project a little later this year. If I use Awlgrip, I will add an additive to remove the gloss finish: Awlgrip Additive Flattening Agent G3013. I am planning to us a good two part polyurethane with a dulling agent.

 

Best regards,

 

Mark

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Deck stripes

 

 

Hello, 

I hope everybody is having a nice winter.

I have decided to do the deck stripes and there is some information about this job but it's not clear for me the paint I should use...

Have someone used the Awlgrip G6001 ? What is your advice? Or what other paint I could use?

 

Thank you in advance,

Note: to Bill from BeBE:  We decided to go for the arch, solar panels and D40 with RIZA :) thank you.

Re: Dinghy davits

Kato has already been mentioned and that's a great unit. Garhauer offers excellent value and their fabrication shop can do custom work. Personally I'm not a fan of having a bunch of weight in the stern. I think it's nuts to carry a dinghy in davits offshore. I see davits as something you make use of in protected waters and it's a great convenience when hopping between anchorages. I've had customer boats suffer harm taking big following seas and damaging the dinghy, davits, pushpit, and deck structure. Of course we do our sailing off the US west coast and in the Pacific. Conditions elsewhere may be far more benign. 
With our Maramu, I just made a bridle for the dinghy and used a halyard. I suppose if I had a big heavy RIB, I might use an electric winch handle to make handling easier. Some friends of ours who sailed their SM tens of thousands of miles carried the dinghy on top of the aft cabin when underway. That works better on the SM than it does on the Maramu thanks to the slightly longer cabin.

Hi Stephanie,
                   KATO seem to be the best in the US. If you have the patience to look through the photographs on File look at the custom job Pen Azen did just for a dinghy - no solar panels. Bebe has a super arch for both. If you can't find the photographs send me an email address and I will forward my saved file.

Re: [Amel] Dinghy davits

Stephanie,

This is not what you asked for, but, I am going to answer anyway. We had Ocean Marine davits which are made in Canada and available in the US and the Caribbean. They were terrible! We gave them away and had the holes filled when we had our solar arch built. We have dealt with this issue for 8 years in about 75% of the world's anchorages you will encounter on a circumnavigation, and we are both very happy with what we do...and yes we tried everything before settling on this:

My recommendations (for what they are worth)
If you want to raise your dinghy at anchor, raise it with a halyard from the Mizzen Mast. It is easy and you can use the electric winch. If you have a dinghy like our 3.2 AB, you will need to rig a 3-point line to the dinghy.

If you want to secure your dinghy for a passage, lift the engine to the rail using the starboard side mizzen halyard through the block at the end of the boom on the mizzen. With the dinghy free of the engine, move the mizzen boom all the way to port, secure it against the mizzen stay on the port side. With the starboard mizzen halyard free of the boom block, use the electric winch and lift your dinghy and lay it upside down on the mizzen deck...tie it to the rails on the mizzen deck.

If you want to go short distances in calm seas, pull the dinghy behind you.

We added a solar arch which allows us to lift the dinghy...but we only do this while at anchor when we want to lift the dinghy for security reasons.

Hope this non-answer helps.

Hi all!

We need to buy dinghy davits for our Amel 53. I would appreciate your recommendations, particularly for those brands that are available in the US.

Many thanks and Fair Winds!

Turkish marina, Santorin SSB grounding and Santorin holding tank

Herbert Lackner
 

Turkish marina:

 

Bill, Samet, Otto,  Rink and Christian, thank you for your answers,  we now decided for Kusadasi and will be there in may.

 

 

SSB grounding on the santorin:

 

There was a thread about the ssb grounding on the amel, I asked if it is possible to connect the ground oft he tuner to the rudder (because there is no grounding plate on our santorin).  In the meantime I found out how it should be (@Attilio, maybe that is interesting for you because you made the rudder connection):

 

There should be no direct connection oft he HF ground to the rudder because this would connect the battery MINUS pole tot he rudder. The minus pole of the tranceiver power in is connected tot he coax shield and then to the tuner ground à and then to the rudder and that is against the amel electric concept (and will cause corrosion on the rudder).  If a connection tot he rudder is made it has to be sperated with a capacitor so that only HF will go through but the DC from the battery is blocked. Recommendation fort hat is 10 small ceramic capacitors with 3900pF (2500V) each, solded together in parallel (will give 39nF(2500 V) with little Skin Effect).  This will prevent electrolytic corrosion and will give a solid SSB ground.  Without the capacitor it is dangerous!

 

 

Santorin holding tank:

 

On our santorin there is no holding tank, sailing in turkey we will need one.  Does anyone have experience what ist he best way to install one (maybe including some pictures / installation scheme)?

@Ian – Ocean Hobo:  As far as I remember Ocean Hobo has a holding tank installed. Maybe you can tell me how it works , installation, experience…,

 

Thanks in advance
