Getting Together / Active Captain

I didn't know that the rivets had failed under normal loads.  I'll be interested to hear what Olivier says about aluminum vs Monel.  Twice the shearing strength is quite a difference.

As to our plans for this year:
It depends on when the CDrive is delivered and we can actually splash the boat.  I think we will go South to Key West, then Turks and Caicos, then North thru the Bahamas.  I would like to be in Maine be July.  Then will go back South to the Western Caribbean for 2-3 years.
I haven't done it yet, but on Active Captain we could share our locations and know who is close by where ever we are.
Steady as she goes.

We use the aluminium since we want the rivets to brake before any other damages. If we remeber right, the first rivets was ordered from Amel and they were aluminium. They are easy to replace if you have the tool onboard. Which we recomend you to have!

Are you continuing south after your mast replacement? We will go slowly north grom Grenada to St Martin. Leaving St Martin for Europe in Mid late April, if you want to meet, which would be nice! Just look for the Amel SM With the swedish flag and a yellow dinghy on aft deck.

Hi, Ann-Sophie,
I don't remember where I read it, but someone on this forum a few years ago (I think) said that the rivets were aluminum, and by design would break before the foil was damaged if something got stuck at the top of the mast.  I am about to remount my jib furler and was going to use aluminum rivets.

Does anyone remember this?  Olivier?  Joel?

Thanks,

Hi Gary
I don't remember the exact amont of ball bearing for the swivel, but if you look in the document in the Files section it specified there. I would also recommend you to replace the GRP tube that also os mentioned in the document. 

The rivets has the size of 6,4 x19 mm

Hello to all contributors to this forum:

I am headed to Antigua in a few days to install all new standing rigging on my Hulll #335 SM, built 2001.  I purchased the entire replacement rigging, right down to the clevis pins, from ACMO (Sylvie was extremely helpful) and it was air freighted from France to Antigua (3 days enroute, a week to clear customs and make its way to my boat).

I have been pursuing this forum for specifications on items I will need and thus far find the following:

Top Swivel Specifications: Torlon 10 mm ball bearings. (actual diameter on the Harken web site of 9.5 mm)  - Quantity:  26 balls per row, times two rows (total 52 balls) for the swivel at the head of jib sail foil.

Rivets for jib foil extrusion to furling motor swivel (the grooved cast swivel that engages the furling motor gearbox via a latching pin):  As I have searched this site I see that Joel Potter indicates that Amel used Monel (also known as stainless steel) rivets.  I could not find that anyone posted the size of these rivets (both diameter and length).  Quantity required:  8

NEED TO KNOW:  Diameter and Length of these Monel rivets

If there are other specifications related to this job please chime in and I will compile them into a document that can be placed in the files section.  This hopefully will save members having to endure the cumbersome search that I just went through.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Diruptor Circuit breakers

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Alan,

I am on the boat then will run some errands, recently wrote down the amp for each of the breakers.
All the Diruptor in the 220 Volt panel are bipolar.
All the ones for the 24 Volt panel are unipolar.
I can give you the amperage of what is on my boat (which is a lot older than yours).
They are other Diruptor all around that I have not write down the amperage (fan for the stove, various places for the winches, windlass, etc.). May be Bill has wrote down the specs.

Sincerely, Alexandre SM2K #289

Good morning Bill,

As always thanks for your email.
This happened over a year ago, and I think in my case it was because the strainer was clogged and the air compressor pulling too much, as it never happened again.


Hello Terry,

I purchased both uni=polaire and bi-polaire from Amel.


Differently so happy the bow thruster is working again!!!
Received the sensors from Amel, replaced the defective one and now back to normal !!!

Have a great day, sincerely, Alexandre

Alex,
FYI, I experienced ground faults with the salon
AC. The breaker on the side of the 220 breaker box would
open intermittently. Sometimes the shore power breaker would
fail.
At first I thought it was one of the
capacitors, but later found that the short causing the
ground fault was caused by a short inside the blower fan
motor. Replacing the fan motor solved the problem.

Hello Terry,



I looked and looked, since they are made in France, Amel is
the best source.

I even tried directly from Dirupter and they wanted to sell
them to me for more than what Amel wanted…

So I just bought spare from Amel (they arrived Friday).

I was told by the previous owner, this is pretty rare they
failed, but had one failing on the Salon Air conditioning.




See you soon!

Sincerely, Alexandre

Shear Strength of Monel vs Aluminum Rivet

amelliahona <no_reply@...>
 

The shear strength of 1/4 in (6.4 mm) diameter blind (pop) rivets are found to be:

Monel           1215 lbs
Aluminum       600 lbs

So about half as strong for aluminum. 

The problem I am having is finding a source for 1/4 inch by 3/4 inch Monel rivets in the USA. 

They seem to be ubiquitous in the Europe. 

Interesting?!? 

Thoughts anyone?

Re: Super Maramu Jib Furling Specs Summary:

Hi Bill:  Merry Christmas:

I assume that my new rigging has the left hand threads as I did not specify otherwise.  The materials are in storage in Antigua awaiting my arrival.  I will verify the exact specifications when I arrive there next week.  

I never got any response to my inquiry on this forum as to why Amel used the left hand threaded turnbuckles in certain places even though it was reported to be more expensive, I told Sylvie at ACMO that I wanted everything to be identical to the Amel factory specification.  

I was hoping that Joel or Olivier Beaute could have provided insight.  I like you and others have long ago learned that there was a reason for everything on the Captain's boats.  Not knowing the reasons, I didn't feel comfortable making changes.

All the best to you BIll, 

Gary

Re: Monel is not stainless steel

amelliahona <no_reply@...>
 

Hi Eric:  

Great information on Monel.  I had always thought Monel was a type of stainless steel but you are completely correct, it is not (according to wikipedia).  Thanks for that contribution.  I would guess that Monel would provide medium strength in shear between that of steel and that of aluminum but will have do some more looking.  Since there were posts about aluminum rivets failing under normal loads I am going to try and locate the 1/4th inch diameter (6.4 mm) x 19 mm Monel rivets suggested.  Also, as I researched this issue on this forum there was a post by Joel Potter stating that Amel used Monel rivets on the foil junction with the grooved manual furling ring (we really need to give a uniform part name to this part of the rig because it has been called so many things on this forum that I don't know what to call it).  Nominations for part names for the jib furling apparatus are now open.

I nominate:

1.  Foil Extrusion - for the aluminum extrusion with the three grooves for the jib, ballooner, and un-latching mouse.

2.  Jib Furling Gear Box is my nomination for the item that attaches to the Jib Furling Motor (Housing).

3.  Jib Sail-Head Swivel is my nomination for the rotating assembly that the jib halyard attaches to.  We need an official name for the "wiskers" that extend from this device.  Suggestions?

What shall we call the grooved manual furling item into which the Foil Extrusion is seated?  

Also we need a name for the engaging pin that locks the "manual jib furling casting" to the furling gearbox. 
 
At the top of the Foil Extrusion there is a plastic or other plastic like material cap that is riveted to the foil extrusion.  The forestay penetrates this cap and it provides a bushing like effect for the the Foil Extrusion at the masthead.

We probably need a name for the item that supports the jib furling motor-gearbox----- assembly. 

Please chime in everyone with suggestions.

Monel is not stainless steel

Eric Freedman
 

 

If I am not mistaken Monel is about 2/3 nickel and 1/3 copper. There are a number of Monel alloys but none of them are stainless steel monel sometimes contains up to 2%steel alloys but not more.

.

It is extremely rust resistant. It is also very good for seizing wire on shackles etc.

It is very close on the galvanic scale to aluminum and 316 stainless is very far away on the galvanic scale.

That is why it is difficult to remove bolts from aluminum and it is easy to remove rivets or bolts made of monel from aluminum. I assume that is why Amel uses monel rivets. Monel rivets are available from Amazon with steel mandrels.

Did you get left hand or right hand thread turnbuckles?

Hello to all contributors to this forum:

 

I am headed to Antigua in a few days to install all new standing rigging on my Hulll #335 SM, built 2001.  I purchased the entire replacement rigging, right down to the clevis pins, from ACMO (Sylvie was extremely helpful) and it was air freighted from France to Antigua (3 days enroute, a week to clear customs and make its way to my boat).

 

I have been pursuing this forum for specifications on items I will need and thus far find the following:

 

Top Swivel Specifications: Torlon 10 mm ball bearings. (actual diameter on the Harken web site of 9.5 mm)  - Quantity:  26 balls per row, times two rows (total 52 balls) for the swivel at the head of jib sail foil.

 

Rivets for jib foil extrusion to furling motor swivel (the grooved cast swivel that engages the furling motor gearbox via a latching pin):  As I have searched this site I see that Joel Potter ind icates that Amel used Monel (also known as stainless steel) rivets.  I could not find that anyone posted the size of these rivets (both diameter and length).  Quantity required:  8

 

NEED TO KNOW:  Diameter and Length of these Monel rivets

 

If there are other specifications related to this job please chime in and I will compile them into a document that can be placed in the files section.  This hopefully will save members having to endure the cumbersome search that I just went through. 

 

Best to all,

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Super Maramu Jib Furling Specs Summary:

Hi, Ann-Sophie,
I don't remember where I read it, but someone on this forum a few years ago (I think) said that the rivets were aluminum, and by design would break before the foil was damaged if something got stuck at the top of the mast.  I am about to remount my jib furler and was going to use aluminum rivets.

Does anyone remember this?  Olivier?  Joel?

Thanks,

Hi Gary
I don't remember the exact amont of ball bearing for the swivel, but if you look in the document in the Files section it specified there. I would also recommend you to replace the GRP tube that also os mentioned in the document. 

The rivets has the size of 6,4 x19 mm

Hello to all contributors to this forum:

I am headed to Antigua in a few days to install all new standing rigging on my Hulll #335 SM, built 2001.  I purchased the entire replacement rigging, right down to the clevis pins, from ACMO (Sylvie was extremely helpful) and it was air freighted from France to Antigua (3 days enroute, a week to clear customs and make its way to my boat).

I have been pursuing this forum for specifications on items I will need and thus far find the following:

Top Swivel Specifications: Torlon 10 mm ball bearings. (actual diameter on the Harken web site of 9.5 mm)  - Quantity:  26 balls per row, times two rows (total 52 balls) for the swivel at the head of jib sail foil.

Rivets for jib foil extrusion to furling motor swivel (the grooved cast swivel that engages the furling motor gearbox via a latching pin):  As I have searched this site I see that Joel Potter indicates that Amel used Monel (also known as stainless steel) rivets.  I could not find that anyone posted the size of these rivets (both diameter and length).  Quantity required:  8

NEED TO KNOW:  Diameter and Length of these Monel rivets

If there are other specifications related to this job please chime in and I will compile them into a document that can be placed in the files section.  This hopefully will save members having to endure the cumbersome search that I just went through. 

Best to all,

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Outhaul gearbox rebuild

curtepp
 

When we bought our  Maramu in 2013 we noted that the previous owner filled the gearbox with 90w gear oil when he rebuilt it prior to sale.  There was a small stain on the deck from an occasional drip.  The surveyor pointed it out, the seller and broker acknowledged it, and no one seemed alarmed.

The drip stain is easily cleaned and intermittent. No more than a few drops a week and often nothing at all.  It seems to be related to heat from direct sun.  It does not seem to increase with use of the motor.  But I wish there was some way to check the oil level inside.

Since I did not do the service work, I cannot attest to the seals and O ring.  The use of the gear oil makes sense but I would say you might expect some drips.  Perhaps this is why Amel used grease. 

Thanks for this discussion.  About 4 weeks ago I was about to bring up this subject.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Diruptor Circuit breakers

Alex,

FYI, I experienced ground faults with the salon AC. The breaker on the side of the 220 breaker box would open intermittently. Sometimes the shore power breaker would fail.

At first I thought it was one of the capacitors, but later found that the short causing the ground fault was caused by a short inside the blower fan motor. Replacing the fan motor solved the problem.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Diruptor Circuit breakers

Alan Leslie
 

Hello Terry and Alexandre,

I searched all over and could find the data but not anyone that was willing to sell them to me.

I have to replace the one for the galley extractor fan.

Emilie at Amel, finally did send me one, BUT its not the right one, its a double pole breaker not a single.

I don't recall seeing any double pole 16A breakers on my boat.....

So I'm not much help, sorry

I looked and looked, since they are made in France, Amel is the best source.
I even tried directly from Dirupter and they wanted to sell them to me for more than what Amel wanted…
So I just bought spare from Amel (they arrived Friday).
I was told by the previous owner, this is pretty rare they failed, but had one failing on the Salon Air conditioning.

Does anyone have a source in North America for the Disruptor circuit breakers as as installed by Amel?

Hi Gary
I don't remember the exact amont of ball bearing for the swivel, but if you look in the document in the Files section it specified there. I would also recommend you to replace the GRP tube that also os mentioned in the document. 

The rivets has the size of 6,4 x19 mm 

Best regards

Hello to all contributors to this forum:


I am headed to Antigua in a few days to install all new standing rigging on my Hulll #335 SM, built 2001.  I purchased the entire replacement rigging, right down to the clevis pins, from ACMO (Sylvie was extremely helpful) and it was air freighted from France to Antigua (3 days enroute, a week to clear customs and make its way to my boat).


I have been pursuing this forum for specifications on items I will need and thus far find the following:


Top Swivel Specifications: Torlon 10 mm ball bearings. (actual diameter on the Harken web site of 9.5 mm)  - Quantity:  26 balls per row, times two rows (total 52 balls) for the swivel at the head of jib sail foil.


Rivets for jib foil extrusion to furling motor swivel (the grooved cast swivel that engages the furling motor gearbox via a latching pin):  As I have searched this site I see that Joel Potter indicates that Amel used Monel (also known as stainless steel) rivets.  I could not find that anyone posted the size of these rivets (both diameter and length).  Quantity required:  8


NEED TO KNOW:  Diameter and Length of these Monel rivets


If there are other specifications related to this job please chime in and I will compile them into a document that can be placed in the files section.  This hopefully will save members having to endure the cumbersome search that I just went through. 


Best to all, 


Gary Silver
