Dear Richard,

I own SM#3 "Mallamok" and I also have the Perkins manual plus the repair
manual of this engine.

If you are still interested, I could copy both and send them to you.

I am an airline captain and have some options where to drop the stuff to
save some postage. So where are you living?

So if you are still interested, gimmie a note and I'll start working on
the copy-machine.

So long, merry Christmas and fair winds.

Hi everyone,

Does anyone have the service manual and parts manual for the Perkins
Prima M80T BB30143? Can I get a photocopy of these, at my cost? This
is the 80 hp four cylinder turbo that was factory installed in my 1989
Super Maramu. My only alternative is to order from the Perkins
distributor at the cost of over $110.

Thanks
Richard Tate

Gary,
Thanks for the photos.
Do you have any other photos you wish to send back channel?
Do you have the flow chart of the watermaker (flow chart).
I am considering installing a water monitor but I need all the details
before I go to the boat in 2 weeks.
Where are you located?
Fair Winds,

Bilge Pump Run On Alarm

amelliahona <no_reply@...>
 

The exhaust water temp probe is indeed a good idea. The same company that makes that
alarm makes a dual channel alarm that has a bilge water level alarm and more
importantly in my book a bilge pump run-on alarm. Once I had the seal on
the water maker low pressure feed pump rupture and it was pumping sea
water into the engine compartment. The amel supplied bilge alarm finally
sounded but there was no telling how long the bilge pump had been running
trying to keep up with the ingress of sea water and sea water was sloshing back
and forth in the engine compartment by then.

I have installed this dual channel alarm system and it gives me redundancy
for the bilge water level alarm and best of all it gives me early warning any time the
bilge pump runs for more than the preselected time (in my case I have it
set at two minutes).

John,
I figured out how to delete the photos and make smaller.
I have posted some pix.

One is of the Vetus Muffler after I motor sailed healed at 20 degrees to
starboard. Fortunately I had a spare muffler.
I have since invested $85- us for this item. It warns of a meltdown before
the engine alarm goes off.
It is the best money I have spent.
http://www.borelmfg.com/products_alarm.htm
I have also had a metal muffler made.

The second is of a tool cabinet I made here in New York as I didn't need all
that space in the hanging locker. There are also shelves from the factory in
the rear of the locker

The third is a photo of Pen Azens engine room showing a Racor Pre-Filter
that I also installed. The fuel goes through the filter and then pumped into
the tank.
It makes for VERY clean fuel.

The fourth is our helm showing Raymarine instruments and a chart plotter.
Last is the Raymarine nav station, the Raymarine multi station VHF is to the
left out of the picture. All the instruments are interfaced.

Happy Holidays,
Fair Winds,
Eric

Hello all,
The photo section only has 30 Mb of storage and was full up. On
checking the SM 319 album I found that we had uploaded five pics
without reducing them to Email or low quality size. Thus each one was
taking up between one and two megabytes of storage instead of between
thirty to 80 kilobytes. We have now reduced them and so there is now a
lot of vacant storage.
From a quick scan through the albums it appears that the only other
"offender" is Eric with his recent additions.

Happy Christmas to all, Anne and John SM319

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] water making fridge!!

Roger Banks <roger.banks@...>
 

Hi Patrick

My fridge needed new seals. Very cheap and easy. Also the compressor
was flashing a red lamp which indicated that voltage was below 10.8V,
which caused the fridge to cut out intermittently, causing lots of
dripping and rot in the sub-floor. A meter indicated that there was
plenty of voltage available so I put it down to voltage drop and
renewed the cabling (which needs to include the whole circuit from
and right back to the batteries. Also quite easy, but cutting out and
replacing rotten wood! Multi-cause problems are always a bit harder
to figure.

Re: water making fridge!!

amelliahona <no_reply@...>
 

22 Dec 2005

Hi Patrick:

I had a similar problem (hull #335) since the boat was new in 2001.
I had Amel trouble shoot it in La Rochelle and Guadaloupe without
success. We periodically had water in the bilge area under the
companionway. I originally thought it was from condensation on the
coils at the bottom of the fridge because there was always a lot of
frost on those coils when we were in the Caribbean. I had a
refrigeration expert wrap them with insulation to solve that problem
yet the water continued. There is a drain in the bottom of the
fridge (a small white plastic plug centered in the bottom stainless
tray of the fridge that connects to a drain that runs out the back of
the fridge) but also the bottom stainless pan in the fridge isn't
sealed around the edges. Water came from either of those two
sources. The drain hole in the bottom of the fridge went to a small
nipple on the back of the fridge (similar to the once from the
freezer compartment hose that you already checked) but my nipple had
no hose on it and just emptied onto the floor behind the fridge
whereupon it ran into the bilge area beneath the steps to the
cockpit. We finally traced this due to an odor problem. I used 3M
5200 and layed a bead of sealant along all seams in the panels in the
bottom of the fridge as well as sealing the drain plug shut. No
problems since then. Use some masking tape to mask straight lines
along the parting seams in the corners where you lay the bead of 5200
as it will run and be a cosmetic nightmare otherwise. I believe the
main source was the drain without a hose attached. Why Amel didn't T
that drain into the drain line from the freezer compartment area is a
mystery to me. I chalked it up to a production error.

I had the same problem with fridge, and it has be resolved by AMEL cleaning the small pipe blowing in it.

thanks for the advice on the gen set, I will start checking
connections again. On a different tack, my fridge is somehow
generating water/condensation? which in turn is flowing into the
bilge. I am presently in the caribbean so ambient temp may be an
issue. Has any else had a similar problem, I checked the small pipe
which collects water from under the ice box tray and it seems fine
Thanks in advance Patrick sm 385

inner forestay

eric freedman
 

John,
I was looking to add an inner forestay lower than the top of the mast, thus
the need for runners. I thank you for the info about the front section of
the mast. I have a drawing of the extrusion from amel. My problem is the
runners.
Attached please find a fitting that I used on my previous boat and plan on
using on Kimberlite for the mast attachment of the stay. It allows for the
stay and an external block for the halyard.
Fair Winds, Eric

Cutter rig and inner forestay

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

Hi Eric,
I think you are wrong about the mast. The section consists of two
parallel sides with half circles joining them at the front and back.
The back one is in fact a complete circle with a slot for the main
sail to use. This means that there is a space in front of the furling
circle into which halyard boxes are fitted and the halyards run.
When fitting a new halyard box it should be secured using machine
screws of the minimum length to avoid the ends chafing the halyards
which will be passing it.
I do not under stand the reference to runners as these are not
necessary if the head of the inner forestay is only two feet or so
from the top of the mast.

Regards, John SM 319


Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Cutter rig and inner forestay

eric freedman
 

Judy,
I have fitted an inner forestay to my previous boat. The problem I am having
is that any fasteners that would be added to the mast for runners or the
forestay mast fitting would penetrate the mast and tear up the main sail.

Hi Eric,
No I have not fitted an inner forestay but I probably would have done
so if I was going blue water cruising again. Unfortunately I am now
too old to sail back to the South Pacific.
If the fixing point for the top of the forestay is close, say two or
three feet down from the truck, then runners are not needed. This is
what Oyster called a slutter rig. I made the bottom of the inner stay
removable so that could be brought back to the mast where it was not
in the way when tacking. Obviously we rigged the stay for long
passages.
Am I right in thinking that you are about to cross the Pacific because
if you are and you would like a few tips I will be happy to post some
of my experiences.

Regards, John SM 319
