Thank you again Craig. The "tube" does not come out in one piece!!!! Disassemble means to divide into two parts?  The upper part of the tube remains attached with the float. Is that correct????? Greetings Enio


Re: Fresh water pump

On the factory fresh water pump on SM 384 I found that if the battery voltage is allowed to drop too low that the pump will not shut off automatically.


Re: Amel SM: Improve waterproofing to outhaul gearbox

Alan Leslie
 

I agree, this is the main problem....
I thought about making some blocks to put in each side of the rectangular frame with SIKA to keep water out of the top part at least, and maybe some kind of seal material for the bottom to put under the big washer.
Also, I thought about buying stainless steel bearings...
My outhaul gearbox is completley US, we have sailed the last 1000 miles using a line from the outhaul through a block on the boom cleat to a halyard winch to haul out the main, secured it then with another line from the outhaul car to the cleat and removed the block and line...we only haul it out to about 1.5 reef, seems to work OK, but its a bit painful !
Hopefully Maude / Emilie can come up with the parts we need.

Alternatively...does someone have a source for the gears inside this Leroy-Somers gearbox ????

Alexandre,

I understand there is a new iridium antenna coming out that looks like a flying saucer about 2 inches in diameter. It should give you worldwide coverage.

I was told it has 8 antennas inside.

Hello Eric,

Alexandre or Alexander or Alex is fine.
But I think there is another Alexander on the forum!

I don't know how many different fitting they have been using...

After the Caribbean, I thought I would go to Brazil and Argentina and actually thought of Ushuaia.
But staying in connection with the internet for work might be a little challenging...

Keep me posted, sincerely, Alexandre

Are you planning to go to
Ushuaia? (if I may ask).

Don't worry, I am glad to help, the forum
has been such a great resource.
Plus
outside picture is prety easy (don't have to empty the
storage inside)!

I added 2
pictures on http://nikimat.com/espar_d5lc.html
I put a measuring tape in inch and
centimeter
I am not sure I totally
understood the question, but I put a light inside and took
pictures.
Hope this will help you...
I am on the boat for a few more days, then will
fly to Texas to watch Formula 1, then back Nov 3rd at the
boat.
let me know if you need other info.

Hi
Alexandre,I would love to
see a
photo of the exhaust outlet looking
directly down it from
the Outside of the
hull.I would also like to
see
if you could measure how far away the fitting sits from
the hull on the outside. Thirdly can you see
the the hole
in the exhaust fitting
outside as well as the as the smaller
pipe
inside, and how far the internal smaller pipe is set
back from the front of the external
fitting. I know this is a lot to
ask an if it is too difficult to do or time
consuming. I
appreciate all your help to
date.Thank
you,EricKimberlite SM

It looks to me that it is
glassed in...
But it looks the
exhaust is a
double metalic tube (one inside
the other) so heat won't
reach the
fiberglass.

Here
are the pictures I took for you back in
September.

Dear Mike, and all
I am
still
trying to figure out how the exhaust
hot air
pipe goes through the hull..
If
you look at the photos I
posted you will see what
amel sent to me
and I cant figure out how
they
installed
the exhaust pipe. It looks
like part of the exhaust fitting
is glassed
into the area of the
hull which is built up for
this purpose. I
really need someone to look
carefully at
the
inside of the hull and send
me a photo or describe how this
is done.
Thanks

Hi
Eric,

We have
a
Ebersbacher 5500w diesel heater installed
at
the
factory. The
air intake is
located in
the
line tidy box in the
cockpit
directly below the
mizzen.
The exhaust outlet is
located on the hull port side. Here is
a
dropbox link to our
optional
equipment manual
which shows positioning
etc:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/dalidkahsgg5koi/Amel%20Super%20Maramu%20Optional%20Equipment.pdf?dl=0

The exhaust
outlet
gets very hot and we
have marked the
safety
rail to prevent fender damage
(bitter
experience).
Best
wishes

Mike &
Peta

Hi, Eric,
I have
an
Espar that was
installed
at the factory. It's great

in cold
weather...it'll roast you
even in very
cold weather. I

haven't looked
closely at the air intake
and exhaust,
but they
are on the cockpit coaming,
one
above the
port cockpit bench,
and
the other just across
from that above the port
deck.
Nothing goes through the
hull. I'm
sure that
someone will give

you
more
info than
this, but
I'll be happy to have a closer look

and take some pics next
time I'm
on the boat
(probably in three

weeks).Kent

I am attempting
to install
a new espar
heater in
Kimberlite.
There was
never
one previously installed.
My only
current problem is that I received a
stainless
exhaust pipe
from Amel which
mounths
through thehull. It has a
flange
welded to
the
pipe which accepts
machine screws. There is
also included a
loose double
flange
which seems to need to be mounted
through the hull.
However
it is the
same diameter
on both of
the double flanges. From the
photos
I
have rceive
it
appears that a hole
is drille through the hull
the sixe of
the
double
flange
and
it is then
glassed in place.. there is then
a rubber
gasket
that
mounts
inside the hull and then the
mounting
bolts are inserted into
the
glassed
into the
fixed flandge on the
pipeinmyletter.

I would think
that the
double flange
should have been
larger
outside the
hull
and then smaller on the
inside flange and then
the fixture
would
sit
tightly against the hull.
Am I missing
something>


I am sorry about the
confusion of this letter,
I have
attached a photo of the pipe
ans
attachments,
From
left to right,
The piece I believe
goes
through the hula
then the double
flange that is threaded
for bolts which has to be built up and
filled with
fiberglass cloth and expoy
, then the gasket and finally the
inside bracket.
Any help would be
appreciated,
I have
includes a photo
of the
flanges and
istallation

Alexandre,

I understand there is a new iridium antenna coming out that looks like a flying saucer about 2 inches in diameter. It should give you worldwide coverage.

I was told it has 8 antennas inside.

Hello Eric,

Alexandre or Alexander or Alex is fine.
But I think there is another Alexander on the forum!

I don't know how many different fitting they have been using...

After the Caribbean, I thought I would go to Brazil and Argentina and actually thought of Ushuaia.
But staying in connection with the internet for work might be a little challenging...

Keep me posted, sincerely, Alexandre

Are you planning to go to

Don't worry, I am glad to help, the forum
has been such a great resource.
Plus
outside picture is prety easy (don't have to empty the

I added 2

I put a measuring tape in inch and

I am not sure I totally
understood the question, but I put a light inside and took
pictures.
Hope this will help you...
I am on the boat for a few more days, then will
fly to Texas to watch Formula 1, then back Nov 3rd at the
boat.
let me know if you need other info.

Hi
Alexandre,I would love to
see a
photo of the exhaust outlet looking
directly down it from
the Outside of the
hull.I would also like to
see
if you could measure how far away the fitting sits from
the hull on the outside. Thirdly can you see
the the hole
in the exhaust fitting
outside as well as the as the smaller
pipe
inside, and how far the internal smaller pipe is set
back from the front of the external
fitting. I know this is a lot to
ask an if it is too difficult to do or time
consuming. I
appreciate all your help to
date.Thank
you,EricKimberlite SM

It looks to me that it is

But it looks the
exhaust is a
double metalic tube (one inside
the other) so heat won't
reach the
fiberglass.

Here
are the pictures I took for you back in
September.

Dear Mike, and all
I am
still
trying to figure out how the exhaust
hot air
pipe goes through the hull..
If
you look at the photos I
posted you will see what
amel sent to me
and I cant figure out how
they
installed
the exhaust pipe. It looks
like part of the exhaust fitting
is glassed
into the area of the
hull which is built up for
this purpose. I
really need someone to look
carefully at
the
inside of the hull and send
me a photo or describe how this
is done.
Thanks

Hi
Eric,

We have
a
Ebersbacher 5500w diesel heater installed
at
the
factory. The
air intake is
located in
the
line tidy box in the
cockpit
directly below the
mizzen.
The exhaust outlet is
located on the hull port side. Here is
a
dropbox link to our
optional
equipment manual
which shows positioning
etc:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/dalidkahsgg5koi/Amel%20Super%20Maramu%20Optional%20Equipment.pdf?dl=0

The exhaust
outlet
gets very hot and we
have marked the
safety
rail to prevent fender damage
(bitter
experience).
Best
wishes

Mike &
Peta

Hi, Eric,
I have
an
Espar that was
installed
at the factory. It's great

in cold
weather...it'll roast you
even in very
cold weather. I

haven't looked
closely at the air intake
and exhaust,
but they
are on the cockpit coaming,
one
above the
port cockpit bench,
and
the other just across
from that above the port
deck.
Nothing goes through the
hull. I'm
sure that
someone will give

you
more
info than
this, but
I'll be happy to have a closer look

and take some pics next
time I'm
on the boat
(probably in three

weeks).Kent

My only

from Amel which
mounths
through thehull. It has a
flange
welded to
the
pipe which accepts
machine screws. There is
also included a
loose double
flange
which seems to need to be mounted
through the hull.
However
it is the
same diameter
on both of
the double flanges. From the
photos
I
have rceive
it
appears that a hole
is drille through the hull
the sixe of
the
double
flange
and
it is then
glassed in place.. there is then
a rubber
gasket
that
mounts
inside the hull and then the
mounting
bolts are inserted into
the
glassed
into the
fixed flandge on the
pipeinmyletter.

I would think
that the
double flange
should have been
larger
outside the
hull
and then smaller on the
inside flange and then
the fixture
would
sit
tightly against the hull.
Am I missing
something>


I am sorry about the
confusion of this letter,
I have
attached a photo of the pipe
ans
attachments,
From
left to right,
The piece I believe
goes
through the hula
then the double
flange that is threaded
for bolts which has to be built up and
filled with
fiberglass cloth and expoy
, then the gasket and finally the
inside bracket.
Any help would be
appreciated,
I have
includes a photo
of the
flanges and
istallation

Amel SM: Improve waterproofing to outhaul gearbox

Mike Gough
 


Hi, I have now completed a second rebuild to the outhaul gearbox. A lot f the problems come from water ingress to the drive shaft and box. In an attempt to improve an inadequate design I have tried an inexpensive fix as detailed :

Hello Eric,

Alexandre or Alexander or Alex is fine.
But I think there is another Alexander on the forum!

I don't know how many different fitting they have been using...

After the Caribbean, I thought I would go to Brazil and Argentina and actually thought of Ushuaia.
But staying in connection with the internet for work might be a little challenging...

Keep me posted, sincerely, Alexandre

Are you planning to go to
Ushuaia? (if I may ask).

Don't worry, I am glad to help, the forum
has been such a great resource.
Plus
outside picture is prety easy (don't have to empty the
storage inside)!

I added 2
pictures on http://nikimat.com/espar_d5lc.html
I put a measuring tape in inch and
centimeter
I am not sure I totally
understood the question, but I put a light inside and took
pictures.
Hope this will help you...
I am on the boat for a few more days, then will
fly to Texas to watch Formula 1, then back Nov 3rd at the
boat.
let me know if you need other info.

Hi
Alexandre,I would love to
see a
photo of the exhaust outlet looking
directly down it from
the Outside of the
hull.I would also like to
see
if you could measure how far away the fitting sits from
the hull on the outside. Thirdly can you see
the  the hole
in the exhaust fitting
outside as well as the as the smaller
pipe
inside, and how far the internal smaller pipe is set
back from the front of the external
fitting.  I know this is a lot to
ask an if it is too difficult  to do  or time
consuming. I
appreciate all your help to
date.Thank
you,EricKimberlite SM

It looks to me that it is
glassed in...
But it looks the
exhaust is a
double metalic tube (one inside
the other) so heat won't
reach the
fiberglass.

Here
are the pictures I took for you back in
September.

Dear Mike, and all
I am
still
trying to figure out how the exhaust
hot air
pipe goes through the hull..
If
you look at the photos I
posted you will see what
amel sent to me
and I cant figure out how
they 
installed
the exhaust pipe. It looks
like part of the exhaust fitting
is glassed
into the area of the
hull which is built up for
this purpose. I
really need someone to look
carefully at
the
inside of the hull and send
me a photo or describe how this
is done.
Thanks
eric

Good Morning alexander,

Thank you for the photos.

It appears that Amel send the a fitting that is different than yours.

However I will figure it out.

 

Yes, I hope to get down to Ushuaia next year.

Good morning Eric,

Are you planning to go to Ushuaia? (if I may ask).

Don't worry, I am glad to help, the forum has been such a great resource.
Plus outside picture is prety easy (don't have to empty the storage inside)!

I added 2 pictures on http://nikimat.com/espar_d5lc.html
I put a measuring tape in inch and centimeter
I am not sure I totally understood the question, but I put a light inside and took pictures.
Hope this will help you...
I am on the boat for a few more days, then will fly to Texas to watch Formula 1, then back Nov 3rd at the boat.
let me know if you need other info.

Hi
Alexandre,I would love to see a
photo of the exhaust outlet looking directly down it from
the Outside of the
hull.I would also like to
see if you could measure how far away the fitting sits from
the hull on the outside. Thirdly can you see the  the hole
in the exhaust fitting outside as well as the as the smaller
pipe inside, and how far the internal smaller pipe is set
back from the front of the external
fitting.  I know this is a lot to
ask an if it is too difficult  to do  or time consuming. I
appreciate all your help to date.Thank
you,EricKimberlite SM

It looks to me that it is
glassed in...
But it looks the exhaust is a
double metalic tube (one inside the other) so heat won't
reach the fiberglass.

Here
are the pictures I took for you back in September.

Dear Mike, and all
I am still
trying to figure out how the exhaust hot air
pipe goes through the hull..
If
you look at the photos I posted you will see what
amel sent to me and I cant figure out how
they  installed
the exhaust pipe. It looks
like part of the exhaust fitting
is glassed
into the area of the hull which is built up for
this purpose. I really need someone to look
carefully at the
inside of the hull and send
me a photo or describe how this
is done.
Thanks

Good Morning alexander,

Thank you for the photos.

It appears that Amel send the a fitting that is different than yours.

However I will figure it out.

 

Yes, I hope to get down to Ushuaia next year.

Good morning Eric,

Are you planning to go to Ushuaia? (if I may ask).

Don't worry, I am glad to help, the forum has been such a great resource.
Plus outside picture is prety easy (don't have to empty the storage inside)!

I added 2 pictures on http://nikimat.com/espar_d5lc.html
I put a measuring tape in inch and centimeter
I am not sure I totally understood the question, but I put a light inside and took pictures.
Hope this will help you...
I am on the boat for a few more days, then will fly to Texas to watch Formula 1, then back Nov 3rd at the boat.
let me know if you need other info.

Hi
Alexandre,I would love to see a
photo of the exhaust outlet looking directly down it from
the Outside of the
hull.I would also like to
see if you could measure how far away the fitting sits from
the hull on the outside. Thirdly can you see the  the hole
in the exhaust fitting outside as well as the as the smaller
pipe inside, and how far the internal smaller pipe is set
back from the front of the external
fitting.  I know this is a lot to
ask an if it is too difficult  to do  or time consuming. I
appreciate all your help to date.Thank
you,EricKimberlite SM

It looks to me that it is
glassed in...
But it looks the exhaust is a
double metalic tube (one inside the other) so heat won't
reach the fiberglass.

Here
are the pictures I took for you back in September.

Dear Mike, and all
I am still
trying to figure out how the exhaust hot air
pipe goes through the hull..
If
you look at the photos I posted you will see what
amel sent to me and I cant figure out how
they  installed
the exhaust pipe. It looks
like part of the exhaust fitting
is glassed
into the area of the hull which is built up for
this purpose. I really need someone to look
carefully at the
inside of the hull and send
me a photo or describe how this
is done.
Thanks

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] ] I Still need Help !! Ian and other espar heater owners

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Eric,

Are you planning to go to Ushuaia? (if I may ask).

Don't worry, I am glad to help, the forum has been such a great resource.
Plus outside picture is prety easy (don't have to empty the storage inside)!

I added 2 pictures on http://nikimat.com/espar_d5lc.html
I put a measuring tape in inch and centimeter
I am not sure I totally understood the question, but I put a light inside and took pictures.
Hope this will help you...
I am on the boat for a few more days, then will fly to Texas to watch Formula 1, then back Nov 3rd at the boat.
let me know if you need other info.

Sincerely, Alexandre

Hi
Alexandre,I would love to see a
photo of the exhaust outlet looking directly down it from
the Outside of the
hull.I would also like to
see if you could measure how far away the fitting sits from
the hull on the outside. Thirdly can you see the  the hole
in the exhaust fitting outside as well as the as the smaller
pipe inside, and how far the internal smaller pipe is set
back from the front of the external
fitting.  I know this is a lot to
ask an if it is too difficult  to do  or time consuming. I
appreciate all your help to date.Thank
you,EricKimberlite SM

It looks to me that it is
glassed in...
But it looks the exhaust is a
double metalic tube (one inside the other) so heat won't
reach the fiberglass.

Here
are the pictures I took for you back in September.

Dear Mike, and all
I am still
trying to figure out how the exhaust hot air
pipe goes through the hull..
If
you look at the photos I posted you will see what
amel sent to me and I cant figure out how
they  installed
the exhaust pipe. It looks
like part of the exhaust fitting
is glassed
into the area of the hull which is built up for
this purpose. I really need someone to look
carefully at the
inside of the hull and send
me a photo or describe how this
is done.
Thanks
eric

Re: Fresh water pump

Derick Gates
 

Maria,

 

Have you looked at your one-way flow valve?  If it is faulty and allowing back-flow of water, then your water pressure will be immediately dropping and the pump will come back on very quickly.  Alternately, the pressure sensor switch may need adjusting - it may be set too high and the pump cannot reach that pressure.

 

Just a thought...

Fresh water pump

Here I'm back from Tenerife, almost ready to cross the Atlantic.... Mid- December....
I have a problem with the fresh water pump:
Pump: hydro mini it works very good but the problem is that some times it doesn't stop working... We have tune up.... Works for a while then... Continues working...

Did you have sometime same problem? Do you have any solution? The pump is new :)

Nice winds,

Hi Eric, 

My Maramu #261 1989 has a factory eberspacher #D4L installed and was in the last group of Old Maramus and may be close to the way your Super Maramu would have had a factory espar installed. If you want to see and measure the install, my boat is in Manhasset Bay, Port Washington. I currently have the whole shelf that the heater and electronics are mounted on removed to bench test so the thru hulls are accessible. You are welcome to come aboard anytime, just give me a call and I will meet you there. 
Also if anyone else knows of a source of replacement parts for a 25 year old espar heater in the US please share. Thank you.

] I Still need Help !! Ian and other espar heater owners

Hi Alexandre,

I would love to see a photo of the exhaust outlet looking directly down it from the

Outside of the hull.

I would also like to see if you could measure how far away the fitting sits from the hull on the outside. Thirdly can you see the  the hole in the exhaust fitting outside as well as the as the smaller pipe inside, and how far the internal smaller pipe is set back from the front of the external fitting.

 

I know this is a lot to ask an if it is too difficult  to do  or time consuming. I appreciate all your help to date.

Thank you,

Eric

Hello Eric,

It looks to me that it is glassed in...
But it looks the exhaust is a double metalic tube (one inside the other) so heat won't reach the fiberglass.

Here are the pictures I took for you back in September.

Dear Mike, and all
I am still trying to figure out how the exhaust hot air
pipe goes through the hull..
If you look at the photos I posted you will see what
amel sent to me and I cant figure out how they  installed
the exhaust pipe. It looks like part of the exhaust fitting
is glassed into the area of the hull which is built up for
this purpose. I really need someone to look carefully at the
inside of the hull and send me a photo or describe how this
is done.
Thanks

Hello Eric,

These are good pictures, because the heat protection being removed and can see better.

In my opinion the 3rd picture suggest this could only be placed during initial construction.

I don't see how it could be installed now, as the hole big enough for the larger diameter to go through, then how do you fill it up???

It looks like you need a part with a fix "rim" on one side, then be able to bolt (either from inside or outside) a second rim...
I think you will have to have it made.
As I was mentioning, there are 2 tubes so heat won't transfer to the hull.

But do you really need to have a diesel heater installed?
Do you really need to cruise with the heater on?
Can you use regular 220 volt electric/fan heater?


On my side, still battling how I can find then change the sensors on the line actuator for the bow thruster...

Good luck... let me know if I can help...

Sincerely, Alexandre

Hi Alexandre,
I have been looking at the exhaust tube that amel sent
me. The way that they mount the flange through the hull
looks very strange to m. if you look at the photo I posted
in the pictures section you will see the double sided
flange. it appears that amel glassed only half of it into
the hull. also I cant figure out if any of the exhaust pipe
extends to the outside of the hill flange.
I think I will have to find another amel and take a
very careful look at how amel glassed this flange into the
hull.
Thanks
Eric

Hello Eric,

It looks to me that it is glassed in...
But it looks the exhaust is a double metalic tube (one inside the other) so heat won't reach the fiberglass.

Here are the pictures I took for you back in September.

Sincerely, Alexandre

Dear Mike, and all
I am still trying to figure out how the exhaust hot air
pipe goes through the hull..
If you look at the photos I posted you will see what
amel sent to me and I cant figure out how they  installed
the exhaust pipe. It looks like part of the exhaust fitting
is glassed into the area of the hull which is built up for
this purpose. I really need someone to look carefully at the
inside of the hull and send me a photo or describe how this
is done.
Thanks
eric
