John and Ruth,    That's a very proud nautical record and I'm sure the new owners of Moon Dog will love her as much as you did.
  Hope you have a lot more fun over the next 40 years.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Volvo TMD22a Intermittent electrical failure causing ...

Graham Boyd
 

Dear Pat,

I went through a long process spanning a year before I sorted this out, with several very informative calls to the engineer at Volspec in the UK (Cheapest Volvo parts I have found). Firstly the key mechanism was suspect. However, if you remove the black plastic cover on the forward side of the engine where you will find the start and stop solenoids (little grey boxes with push to reset buttons sticking out on the port side) and turn the key to off with engine not running....and you get a clicking sound coming from one of the solenoids...it's not the key. Next swap the two solenoids around....one is for start and the other for stop. If when you do this and the engine no longer starts you have found the problem. Next I was told to run a +ve connection from the alternator to the stop solenoid on the HP fuel pump whilst the engine was running and if it didn't stop then the fuel shut off solenoid was at fault.....of course that didn't work so I replaced the fuel shut off solenoid, and guess what problem still not fixed! At this point I gave up. The fresh water pump was leaking at this point which was beyond my confidence to replace due to timing belt replacement at same time so finally the professionals were called.

Mechanic found that the 55 amp grounding fuse had blown, and as I a had replacement in my box all was sorted! Ever wished you'd called in the professionals sooner?! Finally I answer your question... the 55 A fuse will be underneath the black plastic box on the front side of the engine. It doesn't look like a fuse at all. It is a solid bit of white plastic with bolt on terminals at either end. The Volvo book says you should never go to sea without this spare part....which I carefully obeyed.....just didn't know when to change it!!

I suspect your stopping problem may be more related to my recent start problem .. the solenoids in that black plastic box...

Hope this is of assistance

Good luck,

Graham

So far, this only seems to happen when the engine is hot after a long run. Leave it for half an hour to cool and power to the starter panel returns. I am about to replace both the start and stop resettable fuse relays in the black plastic electrical box on the front of the engine to see if that helps.

Thanks Bill I think that is probably what is causing the problem. For some reason Volvo call these solenoids fuses which is a bit odd. Anyway I have two arriving in Hong Kong tomorrow from the uk so I will replace both stop and start solenoids on spec and see what happens. Graham SM140 Sula

I am sure you have thought about this, but have you checked or replaced the negative start solenoid? I believe it is normally open and closes while starting. Solenoids can be intermittently cause headaches.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] New Dolphin Battery charger?

We had to replace our 50 Amp charger and did it with a Dolphin. The problem with the new one was it was the same size as the 100Amp Dolphin and we had to mount it sideways. The job was easily done and the wires came out the side toward the bow. The new charger has similar settings to the 100Amp so you can adjust the charge according to the type of battery bank you have. We got the charger out of Vero Beach, Florida from Scanvisk Inc.

In case my 50 AMP is not fixable, which charger did you replace yours with.
I would prefer to keep using a Dolphin charger.

Any recommendation on which one to use and not to use is welcome.

Was it easy to install yourself? Or did y ou had to ask a technician?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] 50 AMP charger not charging crossing to Nassau

Good morning Bill,

Finally had the time to look at the battery charger.
I tested the Dirupter breakers it is ok.
I checked all the fuse, swap them and they are ok.

I have the following lights:
Green to show it is ON (which by the way very slighty pulse) so could that be
"Fuse Def" is RED

The owner manual says: if the ON/OFF light blink (which doesn't completely in my case) the causes are:
Electrical Connection out not good.
Temperature sensor external not well connected.
Temperature sensor external in open circuit
Short circuit or overcharge outside.

I don't know what to do...

Thanks in advance,

Sincerely, Alexandre

Alex,
Check to see that when you switch
the breaker ON, 230V does indeed go to the charger. The
Dirupter breakers will fail, but normally they just pop OFF
when failing.


I have not had the problem, but I know that there is a
small bag of extra ceramic tube fuses and some spade-type
fuses taped to the left side of  the chargers on BeBe
387.
In the following
photo, I circled the ceramic tube fuse, because I believe it
is most likely, but check the spade fuses as well. Also,
check to see if the fan is working. In my experience, the
fan quits working and the charger overheats causing either a
fuse to blow, or something else to burn up.

Good afternoon,



Just cross from Port Lucaya, Grand Bahama to Nassau, New
Providence.



When I started the genset to recharge the battery, the 50
AMP battery charger did not show any charge on the link 10.


Thanksfully the 30 AMP was working and I recharged the
batteries and continue my trip.



Since I was tired and had to work, I haven't had the
time to look at it.



Any things I should be looking for?



Thanks in advance!!!



Took 21 hours for the crossing, wind were up to 16 kt true /
21 apparent so up to 8.4 kt. No wind 15 NM away from Nassau
motored the rest. Arrived at low tide, on the way to the Bay
Street Marina, which is West of the bridge, gently touch
once the bottom (soft).



Local are saying, the bridge is 75ft tall, while books say
it is 65... will not take the chance.
