Hallo John,
I own a SM 143 (1995) and would like to explore the possibility to upgrade to a SM of a somewhat younger date. Would you be so kind and let me know more about your boat. In particular I would be interested :
-price (VAT paid)
-where was the boat sailed?
-was the boat sailed always by the same person?
-how many days did you spend as an average annualy on the boat?
- how and by whom was the boat maintained?
- electronical equipment-any change to the standard equipment?
-sails are of 2001?
- any other items which might be of interest to a buyer?
- when do you intend to hand over the boat?
Best regards

Today I replaced my teak passerelle steps with this plastic teak like
material. The material was 1x 4" worked perfectly. I had this material on
my last boat and it held up a lot better than teak. They cut grooves in the
material at the factory. Took less time to make the steps than refinishing
the teak material.

Fair Winds,

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Maramou, freshwater under fwd head

Roger Banks <roger.banks@...>
 

Hi Mike

You're reminding me now of some more detail. Our shipwright had to take
out the shower tray and renew the inner layer of the double skin
bulkhead from the shower tray downwards. At that stage we were
attributing the compression post rot to shower activity dampness
working its way down the side of the shower tray. Maybe it was a
combination of factors. I recommend you do some testing of the post and
bulkhead with a screwdriver blade without delay.

We did not have to take down the mast, however. A couple of acro-props
were used to bridge the load of the mast down to the hull while the
compression post and bulkhead were cut away. Whilst it all sounds
rather frightening, it proved to be a fairly straightforward job for a
competent shipwright and not too expensive, circa $2000 Australian.

G,day Roger,

Thankyou for info, design under main mast sounds the same and I think
water ingress from base of mast is most likely as was the case for
your Mango. I have noticed water draining into the head by way of a
special water trap as you described but this goes into the shower bay.
The walls are lined with the usual Amel vinyl lining and I am
wondering if somehow water could be moving down between the vinyl and
wall proper? I think I may have to consider lifting the mast one day
to resolve. Incidentally, I managed to mis spell the model name.
Should be Maramu!

Thanks again,
Mike Gough

Hi Mike

I've had the same problem with my Mango no. 28 (the direct precursor of
the SM). We had rot in the compression post under the main mast which
our surveyor did not find. The problem did not become clear at first
(i) because the forward well also houses the water speed transponder
which leaks a few cups of water each time the transponder is put in or
pulled out, and (ii) the plumbing to the basin in the forward head was
leaking when under pressure and needed pretty much all the clips
tightening (you may want to check this). However, water kept pooling in
that same place.

After some months of ownership and following the repairs, a guest
spotted, when it was raining, a small line of water coming down from
the mast, through the small hatch where (on the Mango at least) the
mast lighting switch box can be opened to reveal cables coming down the
mast, on down the compression post and into the forward well. I'm told
by the shipwright who made the repairs that water down the mast is a
fairly common problem and difficult to arrest, and he had applied a
good amount of glass around the base of the compression post to
waterproof it for that reason.

I've tried as follows. I found an inspection of the mast revealed few
obvious holes; any found may be sealed with a small amount of marine
Sikaflex. This made virtually no difference and I was left puzzling how
else water would enter the mast. I've recently put a fillet of Sikaflex
around the base of the mast where it sits on the step, because it looks
like some of the water running down the outside of the mast may find
its way through the coachroof via the step. This has reduced the flow
but I'm still looking. For the time being, I'm reluctant to block the
mast completely with a filler for obvious reasons of future access.

I have a similar issue with the mizzen, where we also had to repair
extensive rot in the compression box system which conveys the forces
through to the bulkhead. I notice water is still seeping through and
drips down at the aft end of the engine room, directly beneath the
mast. I cannot see yet how this is happening but I'm on the case.

Good luck and do keep in touch about it.

Wilfrid,

Thanks for the info. Sounds like a very good idea to me to increase options
of point of sail and to save wear on the genoa. Glad to hear it can be
easily rigged on this model boat.

beeing new to the group, i don't know if the topic has been talked
through already...

i heard, that it is not good to wire / install certain sensor cables
from raymarine in paralell to the course computer of the autopilot
(ST6000 compass/flux gate) or the corresponding instruments (ST60 speed
/ depth / wind).

does anybody know something about it?

Dear Richard, Gottschalk and John

Thanks to all of you for helping us, to connect NMEA of the B&G
Hydra 2 to the other instruments. Once you know how it works, it is
easy:

As a resume of all your infos: The NMEA FFD is used to connect the
Hydra 2 system to a NMEA device. To do this, the NMEA FFD has a 9
core cable of which brown, blue and violet are used for NMEA.

NMEA Input Signal - Brown
NMEA Input Return - Blue

NMEA Output Signal - Violet
NMEA Output Ground - Black

Safe sailing to all of you

Hallo Hanspeter,
die Formatierung der letzten mail hat nicht geklappt, daher diesmal die Belegung im Anhang!!

ist eigentlich kein Problem.
Ich bin leider nicht an bord und erinnere mich nicht genau.
Es gibt entweder beim FFD oder am "Computer" einen Ausgang mit NMEA
Ich glaube es war am FFD ?? ;-))
In der Betriebsanleitung ist das ersichtlich.
Ich habe alles (GPS, Radar, Autopilot Bedienteil, Autopilot Raytheon Computer, B&G und Notebook über einen Multiplexer vernetzt.
Das kann aber etwas Probleme machen und die Übertragungsrate wegen der vielen Daten ausbremsen.
Hier in der Anlage die Belegung des FFD. damit sollte eigentlich alles klar sein (im Anhang).

Es macht natürlich keinen Sinn die Daten eines Gerätes, die im Multiplexer mit anderen zusammengefügt werden wieder an das Ausgangsgerät zu schicken!!
Da muß man ev. am Multiplexer die Daten-Eingänge und Ausgänge umprogrammieren, so daß nur die richtigen Daten zum jeweiligen Gerät kommen.
Oder man nimmt eine direkte Verbindung vom sendenden Gerät zum empfangenden unter Umgehung des Multiplexers. An einem Datenausgang können sicher zwei bis drei Geräte angeschlossen werden.

Gruß Gottschalk
