Re: Amel 54 impressions

Judy Rouse <judyrouse@...>
 

Did you also notice that it is now cutter rigged? Now I'm wondering how
much trouble it would be to rig a solent stay on the SM2. Anyone know if
Amel offers a chainplate kit for such, or has anyone added one on their own?

I noticed in the video on the Amel website that the new 54 doesn't
appear to have all the gear associated with the downwind pole system
installed. Have they abandoned that system in favor of something else?
Also, no passerelle is shown--is it integrated/stored inside a
lazzerette?

I sailed her in April---WOW !!!

There are down wind poles now set at the base of the mast. (I believe they
are optional) you also get a Gennaker (optional?).

You can get an electric passerelle-but the fold down ladder and platform
seems great for most locations.

Fair winds,

Mike,

Peter Grimm at SuperSailmakers in Ft. Lauderdale has built many Amel
sails, including a Hood vectran mainsail for our Super Maramu. He's at
800-541-7601 or go to www.supersailmaker.com.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] sail replacement

Randy Kilmon <drifter01us@...>
 

Hi Mike,
I got two quotes from sailmakers in Annaplois (North,
and Doyle). Both were similar in price -- slightly
over $7k for the three sails.
I also just read your e-mail re splitting the
difference between $390 and $425. It has merit and
I'll get back to you on it asap.
On a related subject, we're leaving tomorrow morning
for Baltimore so will have to communicate on our cell
(410) 375-8971
Thanks,
Randy

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Stained Sails

Randy Kilmon <drifter01us@...>
 

Hi Mike,
We got all the way home by 6:00 P.M. last night
(Suday), having left Annapolis by 6:45 A.M.
Neither of my computers seems to be working this
morning, so I'm in the public library dealing with 197
e-mails!
I have not yet opened yor message containing the
survey results. However, with respect to these two
questions:
1) "Drifter" is definitely a SM 2000. It is printed in
large letters on the either side of the aft part of
the hull.
I don't know when they eliminated the thru-hull
fittings for the heads.
2) I really think you need completely new sails for
the geneoa, main and mizzen. The old ones are
serviceable but -- as you observed -- they don't look
as good as they should.
Later today, I'll try to get some quotes on a new set.
I did call my friends in Ft. Lauderdale, who I thought
had bought sails from a loft in Hong Kong. However,
they said they had bought only a jenny and that was
through Doyle Sails in Ft. L. They thought the price
was slightly less than $2900. However, that was two
years ago. Anyhow, I want everything to be as
satisfactory as possible and I'm willing to make a
price concession for new sails.
More, as soon as I've read the survey rept.
Greatly enjoyed meeting your and Tom's wife; also,
Ted, who seems like an extremely superior young man.
Best,
Randy

Hi,

Firstly I guess I'd better give a little intro as I'm new to this list.
I don't own an Amel but am scheming and plotting to change that. I'm a
53yr old retired fairly poor Brit, married to a Californian lady who has
decided she likes sailing. (We bought a house on a canal down in Florida
and a little Hunter 30 to try her out). I have been sailing since teens.

I have been admiring SMs from afar for the last 2 years with a view to
selling up and living aboard for my last few active years. I'm just
about to start looking seriously for a used SM and have of course seen
the 54 which looks rather tasty in the video,

How much is it / will it be?
Any ideas how fast they build them? I saw reference to a waiting list
already.

Probably completely out of my budget, especially as most of my funds are
in USD, but I'm curious.

Re: Noisy outhaul drive on main boom

koenvelleman <no_reply@...>
 

The problem is the main shaft of the gear box, wich is of mild steel.
This shaft rust and the water sips in the gear box. I had good
results with high quality sea water resisting grease (locktite has a
good one), but at the end I choose to replace the shaft with a
stainless one, no more problems since then.
(any good machine shop can copy the shaft)

It does not come off with the shaft.

Just remove the nut on the top of the arm which is attached to the
shaft on
top of the winch, and pound away with a sledge. You might bend a
bolt or two
as s/s is a little soft for hammering. Make sure you have a long
bolt for
this hammering.

Hi Eric,
When you hit the bolt with the sledge hammer, which shaft came
loose? the one holding the Andersen winch? It sounds as if
instead
of dropping the gearbox, you raised the winch. Is this right?
I'm

I have just had exactly the same and it resulted in the gear box
packing up
completely! Fortunately the manual over ride system in the SM
works
quite
well. I tried to remove the gear box yesterday using a puller -
you
undo the
bolt underneath the gear box connected to the vertical shaft
that
attaches
directly to the rope drum and then you "pull the gear box down".
Amel told
me that it would probably be very stiff and that most likely I
would have to
remove the boom and take it to a work shop with a hydraulic
puller.
It
appears that they are right! For your information it is the
horizontal
spindle that connects to the motor that has failed on my boat.
Amel
weren't
a bit surprised at this as my boat is 10 yrs old and depending
on
mileage
gear boxes regularly fail at 5 yrs. Let me know how you get on,
I
will be
using a manual outhaul now until the boat comes ashore for the
winter,

Has anyone done this? Or otherwise solved this problem?

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Amel 54 price?

Hi,

Firstly I guess I'd better give a little intro as I'm new to this list.
I don't own an Amel but am scheming and plotting to change that. I'm a
53yr old retired fairly poor Brit, married to a Californian lady who has
decided she likes sailing. (We bought a house on a canal down in Florida
and a little Hunter 30 to try her out). I have been sailing since teens.

I have been admiring SMs from afar for the last 2 years with a view to
selling up and living aboard for my last few active years. I'm just
about to start looking seriously for a used SM and have of course seen
the 54 which looks rather tasty in the video,

How much is it / will it be?
Any ideas how fast they build them? I saw reference to a waiting list
already.

Probably completely out of my budget, especially as most of my funds are
in USD, but I'm curious.

What do you liveaboards carry in the way of insurance?

Judy Rouse <judyrouse@...>
 

Depends entirely on where you live or sail as well as the value of the
yacht. Recently was quoted a premium of just over $6,000 per year for only
500k coverage in Caribbean (requirement of NOT being within hurricane box
during season July through Nov). This quote was for a 2003 SM2. Received
comparable quotes from both American Marine Services and IMIS for Jackline
Policy.

Can you give me a rough idea of how much I should allow for?
Husband and wife normal crew.

Are their any brokers that give preferential rates to Amels?
