Pat,

Did you check the key to see if it is bent or broken?

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Slipping windlass

 

 

I just put on a new gypsy for my new 3/8 chain , and hauling it on the boat the gypsy slipped , I had the nut as tight as possible , even hit it with a rubber mallet to snug it down. When a windlass slips , what needs to be replaced , the bronze outer cone that you snug down , or the inner cone or both? I do not want to replace both if not necessary , I cannot figure how they would even wear down unless they slipped , and why would anyone run the windlass while it is slipping. Is there a dressing that can be applied to increase friction ?

 Thanks, Pat

Kent, I do not think I have a vertical roller on port side. I will look at it more closely , I have never used it, as it does not line up with the windlass and the forestay is in the way. Thanks , Pat

Pat, I have the Rocna 40 kg. It fits tightly on my bow roller with the roll arch snug against the vertical roller on the port side bow roller with the throat of the shank snug on the starbord side roller. It doesn't swing at all. It is in the way if you want to hang a second anchor on the port side roller.

On my Sharki, the Rocna fits quite snugly against my CQR.  I keep it tensioned so that it doesn't bang around. My metal smith is making a skid plate with hold downs to keep the anchors locked down while at sea.

Derick,

I asked that exact question among others to SAV today.

To my surprise the answer that I received the second time I asked was exactly opposite of the response I got the first time just a day ago. I am certainly not criticizing anyone, because anyone can make a mistake, anytime.

Here is what I think (key word,  think):

The bronze/stainless wear bushing that Bob Rossi received in March 2014 is either an abberation, a prototype, or something that is old. My last email to SAV informed me that the one Rossi received was the "old bushing." Here is the quote:

"" Sorry, my mistake, It is the otherwise. I hadn’t understood your question’s meaning.

On picture you sent, bushing is in steel chrome, it is the old bushing.

Today, it is a new supplier, we have the same one but in bronze. That’s the only difference.

For Amel 64, it is a bronze bushing too but in bigger size.

I hope my explanation are clearer.

Don’t hesitate questioning.

Regards
Emilie BALLION""

So, I am not 100% sure what is going on.

I will wait for some other people smarter than me to give assurances as to why Bob Rossi received a wear bushing from Amel made of bronze and stainless.

Question: Do you (or anyone else) know whether the old wear-out bearings and their seals can be "mix and matched" with the new wear-out bearing and seals, or are they incompatable in size?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Marina in Fort Lauderdale?

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good afternoon Jeffrey,

I am actually on the waiting list for Royal Palm Yacht Basin
Price is reasonable about $1300/month but no pool nor pump out.
So I hope to see you there in November and if possible have a tour of your Amel 54 !!!

Kaj, Bahia Mar at $4290/month is too expensive for me, but looks nice.

Stephanie, I would prefer Fort Lauderdale so that the repairs and maintenance can be done by the person recommended by Joel. But might go to visit later.

Stacey, Harbour Towne Marina wants $2800/month, not exactly what I had in mind. Playboy Marine Center is where the repair/maintenance will be done, but not a marina.

Mark, Pier 66 wants $4500/month, Las Olas Marina wants $3200/month.
New River Downtown Docks was $2140/month + $300/month electricity and No washer/dryer, no shower, no WC... so won't go there either.

May be I am out of touch with reality concerning prices, I didn't know most Fort Lauderdale would be so expensive...
wish my insurance had not taken 6 weeks to make a move as I would have gone a long time ago...

So thank you every body for your replies... Hopefuly I will meet Jeffrey in November

Sincerely, Alexandre

Alexandre,
I will be staying at the
Royal Palm Yacht Basin, which is a short. run down the Dania
cut-off canal. I was there 2+months last year. Only a few
miles from port everglades, no bridges to go under, haul out
facilities right there if needed. Not a yacht club by any
means, but certainly not a dump.
There were
3 Amels there when I was there last year.
I'll be bringing Spirit down there for a
month in November.

Hello Jean Pierre.
Sorry I haven't answered before and thank you so much for your kind advice. I will see if I can get a second hand one and, in case I can't, I will study the posibility of having one rebuilt.
Best for now.

Hello Victor,

Mine was also in bad condition.  I looked high and low for a second hand one but obviously they are made from "unobtonium"...

I had a yard (EMEK Marine in Turkey) rebuild mine.  Looks very nice indeed.

Any top notch machine shop should do a decent job.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Propshaft wearing ring

I received the following confirmation from La Rochelle regarding the photo of the wear bushing with stainless:

"(The photo you sent) is the only bushing we have today, it goes on all boats except Amel 64.

Bob's photo of the new wear bushing with stainless steel was just shown to Amel Mediterranean in France by a friend of mine. They say that they are not aware of this change.

I assume that Amel has very quietly rolled this change out.

I am sending a copy of the photo to La Rochelle today for some explaination. More, when I hear more from my friend in France, or Amel.

Just thought you would want to know.

When I get a chance I will try to post the pics on the Yahoo site.

I am thinking that Amel quietly changed their design for the better.
Has anyone else received one like this?

Re: main outhaul

Alan Leslie
 

My 12mm vectran outhaul has a polyester cover and it has not slipped in 3000+ miles and winds in excess of 50knots.
Just pull it up as tight as youcan and it will be fine.
The 12mm fits much better in the jaws of the Anderson line tender than 10.
 
You may find Vectran without the polyester cover to be more slippery than with the polyester cover.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Marina in Fort Lauderdale?

Mark Erdos
 

Alexandre,

 

It is pretty expensive there in the season (Nov – Jun). The real cool spots are Pier 66 and Bahia Mar. I think Bahia Mar is slated for some renovations. This is where the big boys keep their big toys.

 

The city facilities have some better priced options. Of the city owned and operated marinas, Los Olas is the best bet (just north of Bahia Mar). This is still quite pricey at about $2400 per month for Nikimat. But, this marina is in a great spot with plenty of stuff to walk to and the beach is across the street. It is also on the bus route.

 

Here’s a link to the rate sheet: http://www.fortlauderdale.gov/marinas/rates.pdf

 

Do not use the New River city downtown docks. While they seem cool from the river, they have no security.

 

Best regards,

 

Mark

Have you priced any in WPB/ North PB?  can you go under a bridge at low tide-- specifically, the bridge immediately north of the entrance to the Port of Palm Beach?  The bridge is the one that goes to Singer Island.  Clearance is probably 65' at mean high tide.  Old Port Cove is a very clean marina with floating docks, and is within a gated community, just off of US 1.  Lots of big yachts, especially Nordhavns (this is where we used to stay when we had a  Nordhavn 47).  Restaurant/bar on premises.  About 1 mile north of Old Port Cove is PGA Blvd.  Lots of shopping, food and otherwise, sports bars, restaurants, etc.  Or you can go a few miles south into the heart of Palm Beach.
