Does any one know the brand of the swirvel on the forstay profile?

Anyone with a suggestion for the simplest way to dismount it from the profile?

Hello bob

I was unable to find a spare gear for my maramu so I had a spare shaft and gear built. Fortunately I have not yet needed it  

I have over the years replaced the bearings on my furlers and while not a easy job it is not too bad and bearings and seals are available. 

I have drawings and part numbers for the mechanism but do not have the information for the gear and shaft. 

Let me know and I will get you what I have

I also was not able to find it on or around August 12-13.  

It is the bronze gear at the bottom of the main sail furling tube that connects with the shaft coming from the motor.  This is not for the boom out haul but rather for the mast furler.  I haven't figured out yet what caused the teeth to strip out but hopefully it's not a bearing on the top of the mast.

If anyone has had this prpblem, please let me know what you did to solve it.

Thanks, Bob

Re: Swim Ladder

Derick Gates SM2K #400 Brava
 

Brava (SM2K #400) has an aft swim platform that folds up on the transom when not in use.  There is a folding SS ladder attached to this swim platform with 3 or 4 rungs (not on the boat at present).  The platform is attached via  a swivel mounted just above the rear bumper, and is supported by two SS wires attached to the outer edges of the platform. Works great!  As soon as I can find out how to upload a picture to this site I will post one.  I have tried uploading the photo several times but keep getting an error message - any suggestions?

Hi Bill,
          Might be a good time to add a backing plate as you need the dishwasher remmed to do it. My gimbals broke out on the first decent passage and I have met several owners who had the same problem. Equally if it hasn't happened on Bebe by now then it's hardly likely to.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Differences between SM types?

There were literally hundreds of changes to the Super Maramu during its production run of 479 boats spanning the years of 1989 through 2005. I just sailed  SM 53’#477, a 2005 boat, 1300+ miles, bringing her up to Lauderdale to sell from Saint Lucia. I was reminded what fantastic boats these Super Maramus all are. After owning two Super Maramus myself and having sold over 150 of them, new and used combined, I can add enthusiastically that all Super Maramu’s are, well, Super. Some are just a bit more super than their earlier sisters. SM2000 and Millennium are the same boat. I called the boats Millenniums for the North American market as there was negative Y-2K buzz aplenty on this side of the Atlantic regarding the coming apocalypse at midnight December 31, 1999 and I didn’t want any association with the “2000” daffiness. The Redline edition featured a red rub rail and waterline bootline stripe instead of the previous dark brown. The curious fiberglass floors, most of them French Blue, replaced the teak veneered plywood in the saloon in all of the 2000/Millennium versions.

 

The main difference between the earlier now called “Classic” Super Maramu’s and the later 2000/Millenniums is the configuration of the galley  and the location of the fridge and a top loading clothes washer kinda dryer instead of the front opening version. and a Yanmar diesel, although some of these things were on the last several Classic boats built as well. I could break it down even further but I have bored you all quite enough. When selling these boats, I can bring either that far away look or even tears to the eyes of my clients with hairsplitting trivia on the variations between seemingly similar examples.

 

Buy the best one you can find for your budget. Total budget, done and ready, is the most important thing to have a strong handle on.  

 

All the best,

Dear all,

 

Can anyone link me to information on the web or describe the main differences between the Amel Super Maramu boats that I see in the ads? I'm particularly interested to know the main differences between the Amel Red Line, SM2000 and “normal” SM. Also, is "Millenium" just another Name for the SM2000 or was this a special edition?

 

Thanks a lot, Alexander

Thanks for the info Mark, this is exactly what I am looking for.  Too bad the company is located in France,  I am sure the shipping costs to US would not be justifiable.

 

Bill, the previous owner lost the passarelle somewhere in the Mediterranean and was quoted somewhere around $2000.00 Euro's to replace.

We used the Amel ladder when diving, however we would lower our tank mounted in floatation vest and lower it into the water using the lifting halyard on the mizzen mast. Once in the water we put on the vest release and off we go repeating the process when returning.  You could also drop the line jump in on return strip off the vest and haul up the gear. It worked very well. No need to build a new boarding ladder or find a storage spot.

As a fellow diver, I do not think the passerelle/swim ladder is not suitable to board the vessel with diving gear. This is an option I plan to install:

It is deep. It can be climbed while wearing fins.  It is easily dismounted for stowage in the lazarette while underway.

 

A modification to the stern bumper is required but doesn’t seem very extensive.

 

Hope this helps

Bill,

 

I think this is a DIY project for me. I would use plastic paint to finish out the bumper.

 

We have a stern telescoping boarding ladder now but it is not very sturdy and the mounting bracket once caused a mooring line to chafe. I prefer mounting the transom than climbing over the rail. I’m a klutz.

 

Best regards,

 

Mark

Nice ladder. Judy wants a swim platform at the stern...just have not been excited about anything we have seen.

 

Regarding the photo at the link you provided, it appears that they will split the bumper into two pieces. There are 4 bolts securing the bumper and a slot in the middle will leave two on each side. How do they propose to finish the area left raw from the cut? 

 

When I dive, I jump off the stern completely suited up with tanks. When I return to the boat, I either hand the fins and BCD/Tank to someone at the stern of the boat, then go up the boarding ladder on the stbd side, or I tie the fins and BCD/Tank to a line over the side to retrieve when I am back aboard.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Swim Ladder

Terry, We like to swim/dive daily and a permanent ladder off the transom would be convenient . Its hard to accomplish with the bumper and narrow transom. I take my bumper off while on the hard and replace it with a wood 4x4 to lean the ladder on. When its off I have thought that it did not look bad without it. If you were willing to take off the bumper, then I think you could easily fabricate two s.s. tubes extending out probably two inches or so welded to a s.s.  rectangular plate the width of the ladder and bolt it to the flat area were the bumper is bolted now, securing with three or four bolts welded to the back side of the mounting plate , with backing plate inside. Then you could connect a telescoping ladder to the two tubes extending out. The ladder then should be able to fold back and lay against the transom.. Just a thought.
                                                                                                                                                                                Good Luck,
                                                                                                                                                                                Pat #123

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Swim Ladder

The Amel ladder that hangs from the gunnel seems very secure.  I've not tried to board wearing a tank, but I'd probably opt to bring the tanks up with the mizzen boom rather than climb up wearing them.  I would recommend copying the Amel ladder, but I'd do it in aluminum rather than SS because of the weight.
