Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Engine Motor Mounts

Hi Dave.  I never got an answer from Amel. Olivier suggested I use the ones recommended by Yanmar.  I have purchased them but they are in the boat so I can't tell you the order number.  They are much more substantial than the originals and secure to the boat with two bolts instead of one, so there will be some fitting to do.

I can get the number from you in a couple of weeks, and will post the process on the Amel owners site when it is done.
My new CDrive is finally enroute.  The total cost from Amel including shipping is 4230 Euros...much less than I anticipated!

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] rudder repair

Herbert Lackner
 

Hi Bill and Richard,

thanks for your answers, I know that the rudder hole is necessary :-)

What I am not sure is how to repair the laminate at the skeg. If you look at the foto (does the link below work for you?) you can see that the connection problem between the laminate and the steel part that holds the rudder -- the screwdriver's top is "in" the problem-area.  If I turn the screwdriver a little bit then there crack will open up to some mm. The laminate does not glue to the metal anymore and water can come in.

The proposal for repair was to cut the existing laminate in an area of app 25*25cm, take it away and relaminate.  Is there anything special to take care?

Good morning Pat, just saw Bill's reply.
I haven't had time to scan mine yet, but if this is ok with Bill, I uploaded his on my web site.
Not sure if there are differences between S/V BeBe #387 and NIKIMAT #289 but hopefully that can help a little.

the links are:

Pat,
I have a schematic on the boat, but
will not return until March 5th. It is in my owners
documents supplied by Amel. It is very general and probably
not as specific as you may need. However, I bet other owners
have the same thing.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Muriatic/hydrochloric acid

Hi John,
You recommended this product a few years ago. I've been using it since.  Trac Ecological (www.trac-online.com) makes a descaler, and another one called Barnacle Buster for the engines, and SewClean for the heads.  I use the Barnacle Buster in the engines once a year, and the SewClean in the heads twice a year.  There's never any buildup to be seen when I have to pull things apart to fix something.  I don't know the active ingredients,  but neither one smells like hydrochloride or sulphuric acid.  All products are supposed to be friendly to the environment.

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.

Olivier, I had no carbon dust in outhaul motor but discovered that I had 16v showing on the meter when I put the positive contact on the motor housing or grease nipples on gearbox ,shut the breaker off to it and it goes down to about .06 v, motor housing on mast furler showing 6v. It seems I do have a problem I guess on the ground side, who knows, not me . There is no electric showing at the terminals at the brushes. Any thoughts would be appreciated, I am keeping both breakers off until I get this sorted out. Two Amel owners here in Prickly Bay  are trying to help me figure out my problem. It would be helpful if the boat had an electrical schematic , but this boat did not have one aboard when purchased. I have just installed new zincs ,so I am good in that regard.

Thanks,

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.

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.

I am not sure about the first part of your question, but, run, do not walk away from that guy. The hole is supposed to be there to allow the rudder to fill with water.

Hi I'm afraid your guy does not know Amel construction your rudder is hollow it is designed to allow water in so do NOT PLUG the hole. They do that so the stainless steel get oxygen and therefore never deteriorates. Find another person that knows Amel boats. Good sailing

dear group,

inspecting the rudder we found out that the laminate on the rudder skeg has lost connection on one side to the steel part that holds the rudder. the laminate there can put away with a screw-driver and opens for some mm.

the local laminate guy told me that this has to be fixed immediately and to do that he will cut the laminate as showed on the foto "reparatur-vorschlag" and re-laminate this area.

I posted two fotos in the Kali-Mera Section:

DSC0013: shows the problem
reparatur-vorschlag: shows what the specialist wants to do, replacing the laminate

Is there anything special to take into account when doing that? I am asking because I do not fully trust the expertise, he also wanted to "repair (close)" the hole at the bottom at the rudder where the water comes out...

Hi I'm afraid your guy does not know Amel construction your rudder is hollow it is designed to allow water in so do NOT PLUG the hole. They do that so the stainless steel get oxygen and therefore never deteriorates. Find another person that knows Amel boats. Good sailing

dear group,

inspecting the rudder we found out that the laminate on the rudder skeg has lost connection on one side to the steel part that holds the rudder. the laminate there can put away with a screw-driver and opens for some mm.

the local laminate guy told me that this has to be fixed immediately and to do that he will cut the laminate as showed on the foto "reparatur-vorschlag" and re-laminate this area.

I posted two fotos in the Kali-Mera Section:

DSC0013: shows the problem
reparatur-vorschlag: shows what the specialist wants to do, replacing the laminate

Is there anything special to take into account when doing that? I am asking because I do not fully trust the expertise, he also wanted to "repair (close)" the hole at the bottom at the rudder where the water comes out...
