I stayed at the Las Olas City Marina for a few months several years ago.  Other than nice bath facilities there wasn't much there, but it was well located.  At that time it was priced a bit better than several of the private marinas.

Thanks Kent,

Haven't called, but looked at their price, they want over $3000/month... I think this is a little pricy for that...

Thanks again, sincerely, Alexandre

Thanks Kent,

Haven't called, but looked at their price, they want over $3000/month... I think this is a little pricy for that...

Thanks again, sincerely, Alexandre

I stayed at the Las Olas City Marina for a few months several years ago.  Other than nice bath facilities there wasn't much there, but it was well located.  At that time it was priced a bit better than several of the private marinas.

For what it's worth, Grand Cru (SM #442) and L'ORIENT (SM #422) both hauled out this May in Ft. Lauderdale. My friend has owned Grand Cru for 2 years...........we've owned L'ORIENT for 4 years.  Both boats had normal, dark looking 90 weight oil in reservoirs. When we changed the oil and seals on Grand Cru, it was milky.........the water hadn't circulated to the top of the reservoir to change the color. On L'ORIENT, all the oil looked perfect............we had changed bushing, seals, oil two years ago. The point is that on Grand Cru we didn't really know how long it had been since the last service..........probably best to do it every haul out no matter what the oil looks like.


Bow Thruster Motor wiring

The last time I had trouble with the bow thruster, it was just the contacts in the relay that needed filing.  This time that didn't bring it back to life.  I'm trying determine now if the motor is bad.  I am confused by the wiring making the benchtest a challenge.


Not sure the the SM set up is the same as the Mango, but it is likely similar.  My wiring has positive going to the relay and negative to the motor.  Then there are 3 wires between the relay and the motor.


I'm hoping someone has sorted these out before and made up a wire diagram.  Also wondering if anyone has changed out the relay to a solid state unit w/o contacts?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] SM "C" drive oil and seals and wear bearing

Hi,  Mike,
Yes, water will make the oil in the reservoir turn milky.

I've always changed my seals when ever I haul out...usually at 2 years and well under the 800hr recommended maintenance interval.  I would be interested to hear if your seals hold up for 4 or more years.

I'm jaded about it because the first two times seals were changed, they were put in 2 for oil and 1 for water...I had water in the oil before the next haulout was due.  Since I've put them in 2 for water and 1 for oil, I've not had any water ingress or oil loss, but I'm hesitant to wait until 800 hrs, or even 500 because of the extra haulout costs.

My change to stainless wear bushing was because of the cost of these frequent maintenances and the fact that I was getting water in the oil (I didn't quite understand the purpose of the wear bushing).  The bronze ones did have some wear, but it was minimal.  The stainless one doesn't show anything but a shiny ring where the lip seals touch.

We just hauled Aletes SM#240 for other reasons and considered changing "C"
drive oil and seals. Checking the log is has been only 240 hrs since last
changed and the oil in the reservoir looked fine. We believe the recommended
service interval for this is 800 hours so we did not proceed with the task.

However, several questions arose in this decision.

1) When there is water infiltration and the oil begins to turn milky,
does this show up in the reservoir? Does the oil actually circulate, or is
it just a visual verification of the level of oil supply? (There is a small
return hose coming in the top of the reservoir seemingly to return oil.)

2) If milky in the reservoir, clearly it is time to change oil and
seals even if earlier than 800 hours. However, if after 800 hours and the
oil is still good, why change the oil? If the seals are working well, could
it be 1000 or more hours between service? Perhaps it was 800 hours with the
2 seal configuration and the 3 seal configuration lasts a lot longer? I
wouldn't think there would be temperature degradation of the oil.

3) We have 3 brass shaft wear bearings (one installed and 2 spare). All
have been used and reused at one time or another. None show the kind of wear
indicated in photo postings. None have resulted in intrusion of water. (We
use 45x65x8 CRW1 R nitrile seals from SKF @ $6.04 ea. always installed 1 to
oil, 2 to water). The worst wear we see on any of them is a tiny score line
presumably where the seal lip touches the wear bearing. Are we just lucky or
does this seal system typically perform well and give long life?

Comments always welcome.

it all started because some of us believe that Amel overcharges for the wear

For what it is worth, I think that Amel has much more experience with this
than any one Amel owner, and certainly more than me.

I am sorry if I disagree with some of you, who, by the way, I respect
immensely...BUT, haulouts and C Drives are for too expensive for me to start

Hi Kent,
On the Santorin the three Propeller Shaft Seals on the WOB (Wearing-Out-Bearing) are 45-65-8 (not 45-65-10).  Alternatively, Amel's drawing says you may use two at 45-65-12.  There is only 26mm available from the shaft housing seat to the lip, giving you 2mm of "wiggle room" - three seals at 10 mm thickness won't fit.  I was under the impression the Santorin and the SM shared the same "C" drive, but perhaps not.
