Hi George, the boat is in Sancti Petri, a population of the province of Cádiz southwest of Spain. You can see some pictures in the album "Gran Roque" I created in the photo section of the forum. In any case I try to send you a couple of videos direct to your email, if you do. regards

Please send me more info and pictures. Where is the boat located?
Thank you.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] finally bought an Amel

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

I agree...the Reya B66 also referred to as the A.M.F.A. pump is a great pump. BeBe was delivered in Jan 2003. The pump is 11 years old and we have been on BeBe an average of 11 months/year. 

I was going to install the pump kit that I received from Amel years ago, but had Emek in Gocek, Turkey do the job. BTW, the carbon brushes were almost totally gone, and the nylon on the mechanical seal was worn almost to the metal. The metal impeller was missing a few blades. The B66 kit does not include the sealed bearings...I had Emek source those. 

Take a look: 


So, Kent, it may be time for a rebuild.

Look at Dennis' solution to the fresh water pump problems he had (Post #14750).  My SM  (#243-1999) also has the same A.M.F.A. pump as he replaced.  Others have put on-demand pumps in as replacements and seem to be happy with them.  So far my AMFA pump is 10+ years old and with regular maintenance and occasional tweaking of the air pressure and/or on/off pressure settings it has performed well.

Thanks Kristy.
The draws 6'6" measured.  Book says it only draws 6'   I just got the call that the water pump is indeed nearly dead.  To the best of my knowledge the Sharki shares many of the same components as the Maramu's.  So if by chance you know about the fresh water pump I'm all ears.

My plan is to sail the outside up to the Chesapeake bay to Annapolis.  Shouldn't take more than a week and I have the GS going for me. I'll spend this next year up there as I wrap up some things then go elsewhere.

Re: Sulajon SM # 347

svperegrinus <no_reply@...>
 

Understood, many thanks Joel and John.

We weren't sure if ours had been delivered in October or November 2001.  Many of the subcontractor installs, such as A/C and navigation electronics,  had installer signatures for October.   Some others, such as the (now replaced) Zodiac 6-man life raft had November dates.

Since #347 was delivered November 5, we'll have to assume that #350 was delivered later in November, or in December.

Thanks to all, and again best of luck with the Sulajon sale (less than 800 hrs on the engine!),

The dates and place sound great. I checked the Crab Claw website and they now accept Visa and MasterCard. The only other time we cruised the Bay was in 2006 so we are really looking forward to this season and to meeting up with other Amel owners.

Considering all the possible locations for a rendezvous and the requirements of adequate anchorage ,scenic surroundings , restaurants , etc. I have come to the conclusion that St. Michaels best fits the bill. I thought the weekend of July 11-13 would be far enough out to allow everyone to make plans. It also allows Aletes to get back from their trip to Maine in June and should fall within the small window , between Kent resolving his present problems and his future problems . Here is a suggested itinerary ,subject to changes made by the group. Everyone tries to arrive by the late afternoon on Friday the 11th or earlier . We would all anchor just outside the harbor along the SW shoreline . Saturday about 11:30 - noon , Diane and I would invite everyone aboard for a pot luck lunch . We have had as many as 20 aboard before for dinner and it worked fine, we lined the food up on the aft deck buffet style and people sit along the decks and cockpit. If we have more people we could raft another boat alongside, although I am not a big fan of rafting. After lunch everybody or anybody who would like ,could send the day ashore visiting the maritime museum , brewery , walk/shop in the beautiful little town. Then around 5 pm. we would gather again on our boat or another boat for cocktails. We would then about 6:30 pm. dinghy in to dinner at the Crab Claw restaurant ,  which can accommodate large groups. One thing , they do not take credit cards , so have cash, I wonder why. Then Sunday if the group wanted , we would leave Sunday morning and have a rally down the Eastern Bay and over to Annapolis , where we would anchor in front of the Academy . There is always dinghy races and much to watch. We could have cocktails ,then do whatever people want, dine aboard , ashore whatever. Monday morning we go our separate ways or maybe some will sail south together ,or stay longer and enjoy Annapolis. Here is a list of owners to date that expressed their plans to attend, if you are not on the list ,yet and want to join us contact me. Aletes - Mike & Lauren , Shenanigans - Pat & Diane , TBD - Gary & Robin , Bali Hai - Ric , Indecent - Stephanie , Lone Star - Craig & Jan , Kristy - Kent , TBD - Eric & Viki , Moon Dog - John & Ruth , No Boat - Richard , Atman - Velt , Brevis - Sherman , Fiasco - Aras , So right now it looks like we have 12 boats planning to attend .

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Sulajon SM # 347

Amel takes the month of August off for summer holidays. The new model year starts when production begins again in September, hence a boat built in the last quarter of the year will be the next ‘model‘ year. Model year is more important than actual build year as it denotes the latest/most improved evolution of the SM 53. 479 were built in all.

 

All the best,

Joel

Sounds great, Pat and Diane.  I think Dawn and I will be there without a boat, as we still want to go South for a few weeks in May if we get the CDrive repaired in time, rather than take Kristy up to the Chessy.  We'll look into getting a B & B in St Michaels and bring the paddle boards and/or inflatable kayak as a way to move about on the water...too bad I don't have my Duck Trap Wherry built yet, that would be perfect.

I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone and putting some names, faces, and boats together.

Steady as she goes.

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Chesapeake Bay Rendezvous

 
Considering all the possible locations for a rendezvous and the requirements of adequate anchorage ,scenic surroundings , restaurants , etc. I have come to the conclusion that St. Michaels best fits the bill. I thought the weekend of July 11-13 would be far enough out to allow everyone to make plans. It also allows Aletes to get back from their trip to Maine in June and should fall within the small window , between Kent resolving his present problems and his future problems . Here is a suggested itinerary ,subject to changes made by the group. Everyone tries to arrive by the late afternoon on Friday the 11th or earlier . We would all anchor just outside the harbor along the SW shoreline . Saturday about 11:30 - noon , Diane and I would invite everyone aboard for a pot luck lunch . We have had as many as 20 aboard before for dinner and it worked fine, we lined the food up on the aft deck buffet style and people sit along the decks and cockpit. If we have more people we could raft another boat alongside, although I am not a big fan of rafting. After lunch everybody or anybody who would like ,could send the day ashore visiting the maritime museum , brewery , walk/shop in the beautiful little town. Then around 5 pm. we would gather again on our boat or another boat for cocktails. We would then about 6:30 pm. dinghy in to dinner at the Crab Claw restaurant ,  which can accommodate large groups. One thing , they do not take credit cards , so have cash, I wonder why. Then Sunday if the group wanted , we would leave Sunday morning and have a rally down the Eastern Bay and over to Annapolis , where we would anchor in front of the Academy . There is always dinghy races and much to watch. We could have cocktails ,then do whatever people want, dine aboard , ashore whatever. Monday morning we go our separate ways or maybe some will sail south together ,or stay longer and enjoy Annapolis. Here is a list of owners to date that expressed their plans to attend, if you are not on the list ,yet and want to join us contact me. Aletes - Mike & Lauren , Shenanigans - Pat & Diane , TBD - Gary & Robin , Bali Hai - Ric , Indecent - Stephanie , Lone Star - Craig & Jan , Kristy - Kent , TBD - Eric & Viki , Moon Dog - John & Ruth , No Boat - Richard , Atman - Velt , Brevis - Sherman , Fiasco - Aras , So right now it looks like we have 12 boats planning to attend . Diane and I thought if we had half that many it would a great success and lots of fun. If anyone else would like to join us , please contact me at sailw32@... , or if you have comments , so as to keep the site free. Looking forward to meeting everyone , it should be fun!
