Duane,

If you're looking to buy a boat at "significant discount", you can probably find some Beneteau, Hunter, or Catalina with a desperate seller. There are rarely occasions where someone is giving away an Amel at a cheap price. If you're looking at a brokerage boat in Ft Lauderdale, it's probably listed by Joel Potter. Joel has represented Amel since the 1970's. He has a good reputation in the Amel community and knows what the boats are worth. 

You will find lower prices in the Caribbean but many of those boats will have more wear and tear. There are some downsides to buying a boat that was not originally sold into the US market and if you find a good broker, he can educate you on those details. 

You won't find a decent SM under $300K. You may be able to buy one for less than that, but you will find that you have $300K or more in it before you can go sailing with confidence.

Who use Weather Fax?

Dear Amel Forum Member,
On NIKIMAT (SM2K #289) I have the Funuro Weather fax connected to my SSB.
Do you know where to find paper?
Does any of you still use weather fax? If so, where?

As always, thanks in advance, sincerely, Alexandre

John,



I think the OP was inquiring about a comment left by 007 about purchasing a Euro model and where to look in Europe. I do not think the intent was to inquire how to best reduce vendors asking prices.

I am astonished that any owner should seek to suggest to would be purchasers on how to best reduce vendors asking prices. Presumably Duane is over 21 years old and should be able to do his own deal without the aid of existing owners.

Hello Duane,



I looked at Yachtworld and found 7 in USA… none in Norfolk.



In my opinion, the price is too high and you could pick up a Euro model at a considerable discount.



Good luck in your search.

The name is Norfolk, it's located in Fort Lauderdale.  Where should we look that they would be at a significant discount?

Thanks,

Hello Gang,

I am having a new set of cockpit covers made for Eleuthera.  At some time in the recent past, someone commented that one particular trade name is much better than others as it does not "grey" out like the others.

Can someone remind me of the good clear stuff's name?

Thanks.

Re: Santorin ground strap

rossienio@...
 

Hi Craig, I could not pull the bilge pump, but I managed to left it enough to see the status of ground strap. Broken. But, to mount a new, I should also remove the FEIT bilge pump, And also I have in the engine room the FischerPanda generator that makes me the most difficult movements. Then I  thought about leaving  broken the ground strap and put, simply,2 zincs on the keel. As I said in the message 18939th divanz620. We will think some more. I hope you can understand my bad english. Regards. Enio


Re: Santorin ground strap

Craig Briggs
 

Hi Enio,
You were struggling to remove your bilge pump a few posts ago, and I gave you some suggestions.  Were you able to do that?  If so it should be fairly easy (but time consuming)  to replace the ground strap per Bill Rouse's suggestions - you do not really need a special tool - just a long extension (or several shorter ones) for your ratchet wrench.  If you are unable to do that, I should think a 9000 pound cast iron anode will last much longer than you and I will be posting here, since it would not be electrically connected to the rest of your boat and so will not be part of the galvanic protection system - it should be virtually inert. 
Sorry if I am not understanding fully your seemingly straightforward, albeit difficult and time consuming, repair job. Keep on keeping on and it will be done (properly) in no time!
Cheers,
Craig Briggs, SN#68 Sangaris


Re: Sailmaker measurements, original Maramu

Dave_Benjamin
 

Nathan,

There's two different rigs on the Maramu. You have the older Isomat masts on #29 and the later ones had the Nirvana all furling rigs. The Nirvana rigs are taller. I know this, having done sails for Bill's Maramu over in Richmond and a few others. I think the best source of those measurements is simply measuring the rig. Unfortunately when I built cruising sails for your boat, I didn't document official I, J, P, E, Py, and Ey since the boat wasn't being raced. Contrary to what many people assume, the luff of the main does not correlate to the "P" dimension of the boat. Nor does the foot coincide with E because a deduction is made for the luff hardware. 

Another issue on your boat is that Harken track. The main has very short girths because of the way that system pushes the luff back and the backstay crane being short. So if you really wanted to get some sail area in the main, I'd put some sort of backstay crane on that would allow the sail to be designed with 38% 1/4 girth and 65% mid-girth. 

Is your dad going to build some new inventory for you?

We have been in contact with Amel, and there is no drawings of the swivel. But I am still looking for that swivel picture that was posted a couple of months ago where you could see the plastic things that are between the stay and the swivel. So you who posyed that can you please come back and let me know where in the Photo section I can find it.
