Our experience has been that it can be difficult to get a berth in a French Mediterranean Port, however usually Port Leucate and Canet en Roussillon tend to have places – Canet is slightly more expensive nicer and so far our experience has been positive with the local tradesmen.

 

Best wishes

Hello Annesophie,

I seem to remember that you had works done at a marina in this place. Can you please confirm and if so give me more info because I am thinking that Malta is a bad place for selling Amels and I am thinking of having the boat moved up to France by a passage crew as I have terminal cancer.

Hi to all,
every year I use white vinegar to fill water flow system both Yanmar and Onan for 24 H. No problem.
With Onan flow system it's also very important to check if the Mixer_ Part.No.18 155-3261-02 is not clogged with carbon deposit. 
If yes, the impeller will last less and will collapse very quickly.  
Buon Vento

Hello Bill et al,

I just spent the day at Onan UK learning about the MDKAL.  Another Amel owner was there… he had done the organising for this course.

If one wishes to do the cleaning himself, the instructor said that well diluted “brick cleaner” would do the trick in 10 minutes.

Remove the heat exchanger and immerse the unit in the above solution.  Rinse well then reinstall the component.

Basta.

Ric, et al

I think it only referred to as Muriatic Acid in the US. Other places will refer to it as Hydrochloric acid which is a solution of hydrogen chloride (HCl) in water.

Brick cleaner is generally a 5% solution of Sulfuric acid. Easily bought in gallon jugs at any hardware store mixed at that rate. Not sure I would want to “run-in-thru my engine and dislodging scale, only to clog somewhere else.

Re: Satellite communication - Fleetbroadband 150

webercardio@...
 

I changed to Inmarsat FleetBroadband Pre-Paid Small vessel Plan. So I activate my fleetbroadband 150 only  the weeks, when I am on the  boat. I charge  via internet , my provider is   GlobalTelesatCommunications  in England ( www.globaltelesat.co.uk ) but I also contaced a company in US.
I choose this company, because  you can  ad for a few money the REDPORT-Optimizer - very usefull to make a protection between SAT-phone and  computer . You will find more informations on web ....
I only pay once activation fee,  buy a voucher  for 60 days, use it , renew , prolong or loose it.
You may make your calculations with the rates  on the website.
So I use all my units until I leave the boat. The next weeks, there is no  charge. Activate via internet for
the next holiday works well, you  buy a new  voucher, no extra activation fee.

Hello Ric,

The instructor suggested to place the heat exchanger in a suitable cleaning tray….

I should have said that also.

We have an Inmarsat Fleetbroadband 150 satellite system for phone calls and internet connection.
The Small Vessel Plan we have is 112 USD a month including 5Mb of datatraffic, if we need moore it is 21,96 USD a Mb.
Phone calls to any land number in the world 0,70 USD/min and to mobile devices 0.97 USD/min. (related to a mobile phone rate this is very good)

My question is, if you have a Fleetbroadband 150, what kind of plan do you have? Which provider?

Selling Underwater Camera Kit - Never Used!

Hi there.  I am selling an Intova IC600 underwater camera kit with an entire variety of accessories.  I bought in July 2010 per a friend's recommendation when we were sailing around the world on our Amel but for logistical reasons it never made it to the boat.  So has never been used.  Listed on Ebay if you are interested.  I thought someone on this board might be interested in it.  Thank you.
