Hi All,

s/v Amanin, Amel 54 no.164, has just completed her first singlehanded circumnavigation, and arrived at her home mooring in Datca, Turkey.

Main ports of the journey were, Knidos (Turkey, Nov 2012), Gozo, Smir, La Palma, Martinique, Panama, Nuku Hiva, Tuamotu Atolls, Tahiti, Moorea, Bora-Bora, Cook Islands, Tonga, Fiji, New Caledonia, Thursday Island, Darwin, Christmas Island, Reunion, Port Elizabeth, Cape Town, Mindelo, La Palma, Smir, Gozo, Datca (Turkey, May 2014).

I am thankful to the stubborn but good people of Amel Boatyard, for building this fantastic boat for me, who  handled many situations gracefully, and transformed potential misery to pleasure.

I am also grateful to Rıza, of Emekmarine, Gocek, for his 7/24 online technical support, through some bizzare timezone differences.

Fair winds to you all,

Haldun Karagoz

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] New Recmndd Autohelm

Jacques Paulus <jacquesetannick.paulus@...>
 

Hi, On my Santorin, I just replaced the drive unit of the autopilot (the motor actionning the steering wheel) by a Raymarine type 2 (12 V : M81136 ). It’s a rotative driving unit, not a linear one.

The size of the motor had been given by Raymarine on basis of the specifications of the dead unit. It’s the unit calibrated for a max 20T displacement. The smaller one, for up to 10T is too small according to Raymarine and Pochon, the installer of the autopilots on the Amel boats.

 

Hope this helps

Hi All, the ST7000 did its best but seems like at the age of 22 needs to retire. What will be the recommended new one for Santorin? ev 200 (medium size boats) or ev 400 (Large size) Raymarine? Any other tip or recommendation? also taking the opportunity to ask - does anyone has the weight from travel lift? as on the web when search for Santorin weight I find anything between 11 tones to 25 tones...

My Santorin came out of the water at 15.5 tons, half full water almost full diesel, but not fully loaded, so I guess 16 tons fully loaded seems right.

Is it he control that stopped working on autopilot. Took the motor off mine for a rebuild and it's been fine ever since.

Sputtering vented loop

Scott
 

Hi. When running at higher RPM, aerated water moves through the vented loop from our Volvo TMD22B and sputters out of the loop relief valve which is located in our 1997 SM at the starboard side of the stainless steel loop. Seems worrisome. Has anyone else had this and/or  solution? Also, is the loop the same for Yanmar installations? Thanks

Mine, loaded with spares, fuel, provisions, dinghy and motors has come up to 16 ton. A little weight improves the ride. Replace the parts on ST7000 for another 10 years.

I think you will be shopping for an infra-red thermometer with a laser pointer/designator. Be sure to get one that reads up to 1000F so you can use it for exhaust gas temperatures. This is one of the most useful tools you will ever own. Take the temps on all the machinery when it is running normally so you will have a base line to compare to when trouble shooting. Just like people, when machinery ’gets sick’, the temps go up or down

If you do not have a laser thermometer,  you should get one...about $20.

Re: Pump Out ... SM

Jim Anderson
 

Just to add an additional pumpout tip for the SM's that are equipped with the standpipe: Just like on the water and diesel tanks, on the holding tank caps there is a cable attached so that they don't go overboard. When attaching the pumpout suction hose and pressing it firmly into the opening, this little cable coming up and out through the hole will sometimes be enough of an obstruction so as to cause an air leak and prevent the pumpout hose from getting enough suction to empty the tank. To solve this just use a cup and pour a little water around the opening as the hose is sucking. This will stop the hose from sucking air long enough to get the suction hose to start sucking from the tank. Hopefully this is helpful.

Imtra brand wall light, style called "Life" appears to be the identical lamp as on our SM2k hull #248.  price a few years ago was US$183 for lamp, US$44 for shade.  see www.imtra.com for current info.
 
I have had good luck cleaning the half-lampshades by dusting them first and then spraying with a chlorine bleach/water 50-50 solution, then rinshing with fresh water.  they come out looking branch new.

Wall sconce SM 1997. 
The varnish is dull brass, I would change the wall sconces, someone does it address a supplier to change these lamps with half lampshades.
thank you very much
