Will contact them at show and ask for samples. Agree that Sapele
seems the best choice. Will advise.

Thanks,

bow thruster

tonic102004 <paebersold@...>
 

dear all

I have put 6 photos in the amel forum group of the bow thruster de-
installation procedure. They illustrate to some extend to job to be
done. With the desription of Charlie Cronheim it will not be very
difficult to do the job in the water. Just make sure that you keep the
line that is fixed on the bow thruster tool inside the boat (front
cabine) while fishing in the water the the lower bow thruster part from
the deck of the boat.

Good luck

Bow thruster strengthening kit - installation photos requested

Zanareva
 

Eric,

Thanks for the clarification!

At any rate, if a SM owner could post several photos of their
installed kit to strengthen the bow thruster, that'd be great.

I agree with Bob. I have the bow thruster refit gear and haven't

installed gear.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Bowthruster Bow Thruster Replacment Tool Instructions

svmalaika@...
 

I have successfully used the AMEL supplied bow thruster repair tool six times
(twice on my SM #336 and four times helping fellow owners) and use the
following procedure:

1) Lower the bow thruster until it is about 10-15 cm (4-6 in) above the fully
down position.

2) Securely fasten a hose clamp around the bow thruster shaft so it cannot
move further down.

3) If fitted, remove the collar from the base of the motor. Then remove the
four allen screws that secure the shaft to the motor.

4) Raise the bow thruster motor to the fully up position. This will leave the
bow thruster shaft down and disconnected from the motor, with room to install
the tool.

5) Fit the AMEL tool into the top of the bow thruster shaft with the hole for
the line facing aft (towards you - this is to help correctly orient the bow
thruster when you reinstall it.) and carefully secure it using the two set
screws provided.

6) Clean all grease from the top of the bow thruster shaft and the tool.
Carefully apply plastic electrical tape to the joint between the tool and shaft,
being sure to also cover the screw holes.

7) Secure the bitter end of the line from the tool, loosen the hose clamp and
lower the bow thruster assembly until it can be retieved from on deck or a
dingy using a boat hook.

8) Replace the prop (if you need instructions let me know). You may also wish
to replace the bow thruster gear oil at this time (optional). If so, remove
the tape and tool. Invert the unit to drain the oil, add new oil, replace the
tool and retape.

9) Carefully lower the unit into the water and retrieve it using the line
fixed to the tool. Ensure that the hole in the tool is facing you to properly
orient the unit. Secure the shaft with the hose clamp in about the same positon
as before. Remove the tape and tool.

10) Lower the bow thruster motor about 10-15 cm (4-6 inches). Raise the
shaft manually and mate it with the motor. Sometimes it is a bit difficult to get
the spline from the motor to mate with the drive shaft. Just keep trying and
it will suddenly come together. Secure the asssembly with the four allen screws
and replace the security collar. Remove the hose clamp.

11) Test the unit by fully raising and lowering it several times.

12) Have a beer or two!

This all may sound a bit daunting, but it really is straight forward and
simple if you take your time and think ahead. It should take about 30 minutes.

Perkins 4-108 exhaust elbow

John and Anne on Bali Hai <hollamby@...>
 

Hello Kiwi,
I had the same problem with the elbow on the Volvo on my last boat
when we were in Australia. A spare could be flown over from Sweden and
would have cost about £650 including delivery. A local stainless
fabricator made one up in a few days at a cost of £450 using standard
bends etc. cut to size. It fitted perfectlyas he used the old one as a
model.

Good luck, John

Looking for our former Mango

foxfun18 <reserveren@...>
 

Hi

As most of the boat owners, your glad when you buy your boat, and your
glad when you sell it. But with an Amel you will find out later that
you have sold something special.

This is the reason that we're searching for our former Mango "Lady
Anthonia" on which we sailed for 5 years. It was on one of the last
build Mango's and so far as we can remember had it hull number 72.
Because we're not sure about the hull number it can also be 71- or 74.
We sold it in 1994 in Ft Lauderdale via Joel Potter to an US citizen
who called the vessel Renaissance (or something like that). Does anyone
know where it is and/or what has happened to it ?

Thanks
Laurens & Catharina
