Re: Prop Shaft Electrolysis

Hi, everyone,
I hope you are all having a great sailing season.

My new C Drive has finally arrived and we are sorting out the reinstallation to be done in early Feb when I can be present.  Hallelujah!!!!

I have just started looking at the electrical system to find the source of the current leak...with the help of a British electrician who was highly recommended by the marina owner.  Here's what we've found so far:

1. With the 24v battery switch closed (on), and the 220V shorepower off (at the breaker on the switching panel on the engine room forward bulkhead), there is 3Volt DC between the bonding system and the negative battery pole.  This disappears when the 24V battery switch is opened (off).  When the 220V breaker is turned on, this voltage jumps to 6V, whether the charger is powered or not (at the 220V panel in the galley).  When the 12V charger is turned on, the voltage jumps to 9+V.  My electrician is pretty confused by this.

2. When measuring this voltage between the negative battery pole and the bonding system, if the 24V battery switch is opened (turned off), there is a spike to the full battery voltage of 27V which degrades to 0 V over a minute or so.

3. We also discovered that the bonding wires from forward of the engine room were not connected to the angle iron rails that support the engine, but rather went to the stainless "muffler" and to the engine, outdrive, and transmission.  The bonding wire from the zincs on the rudder is attached to the angle irons.

I'm going to do some more investigation this evening, but wondered if anyone had any ideas about what may be going on.

As usual, thanks ahead of time for any light you can shed.

Re: Wind Generator

We have an Air Breeze, installed by the previous owner on our Maramu.  Mounted on a SS pole at the stern on the port side.  Right above the aft cabin.  I have to disable it at night due to vibration and a low moan/hum.  Its spins very quiet but the hum is way loud.  I have fussed and fussed to try and eliminate the moan/hum but its worse than having an obnoxious poltergeist.  If I had a shotgun, the wind gen would probably die violently.

We have used solar panels on prior boats.  When I have the time and $$ I will install panels on the Maramu. 

Bill and Andrew are correct.  Panels are a way better solution.  I would not myself buy and install a wind-gen until I had invested in as many panels as I could conveniently mount.  With the panels be sure to get a top quality charge controller.

Took Pure Magic from St Maarten to Norfolk Virginia in April last year. The original plan had been to get to New York via Bermuda but the weather out there was consistently bad at the time. We had a great trip up the east coast and finally have over wintered the boat in Halifax. We encountered nothing but kindness and friendliness en route. 
Have a good trip

Hi Paul and Susan!

Joel is right about the ICW and the risk of going aground.    My husband and I have done it many times since retiring in 2001, and he has been doing the waterway since the early 80's.  Since 2001, we travelled the ICW in a Nauticat 43 motorsailer and then in a Nordhavn 47 trawler, both of which drew 6' or more.  in all the years that we travelled the waterway, we ran aground twice with the Nauticat, but fortunately had towing insurance to get us off.  By the time we got the Nordhavn in 2006, we had learned that sometimes it is just better to do coastal hops, and then pull into port cities or to be very selective about the portions of the waterway that we knew we could do comfortably.  Joel mentioned 2 cities in FL and we frequently are in and out of the St. Lucie  inlet (FL) but you can also go to Amelia Island, or hop up the coast to Brunswick, GA, or up to Savannah, Charleston, Wilmington, etc.  There  some deep bays in GA and SC with beautiful, secluded anchorages.   Also, you can enter the ICW at Morehead City and make it to Norfolk/Chesapeake Bay without running aground, rather than going around Cape Hatteras, as long as your air draft is less than 65' at mean high tide.  ( On the Nauticat, we had to lean her 5 degrees to get under the bridges -- it was like a Chinese fire drill, swinging out the boom with a water-filled drogue, etc. A foto of one such instance wound up on the cover of a sailing magazine.)

Off hand, I cannot recall the names of the websites that focus on ICW travel from MileMarker 0 (Norfolk, VA from whence we hail), going south, but I am sure you can find them by searching -- they give weekly updates to problem areas, in particular, with shoaling.

Please feel free to contact me at stephiedib@....  in case you stop in Freeport, we live there most of the year, and would enjoy meeting you.  

Fair Winds!

Hi Charles, Joel is spot on the ICW is no place for an Amel. 
St. Aug is great you can tuck in the major ports as you go along. Await a something south wind be very, very careful not to be on the Gulf Steam when it's out of the north.  (Square big  waves) 
As far as crossing early May in the North Atlantic is cold. Think about a stop in St George Bermuda the head over staying well south of 40deg out of the storm belt. Horta is great in late 
June. Fair winds

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: East Coast

amelforme
 

Hello Mr. Macdonald. I have been selling Amel boats for Amel on this side of
the Atlantic for more than thirty years. Here are some insights I hope you
can find useful. Saint Augustine is the first real city established by the
early European explorers in what later became the United States. It is a
very interesting place, quite charming, and everyone I know who has passed
through there has wonderful things to say about it. Most folks stay longer
than they intended initially just because they enjoyed it so much. Cape
Canaveral has some things to recommend it but between the two, Saint
Augustine would be my first choice. Both is better.



Your SM 53 is not Intracostal friendly and in many places it is unusable
there. Bridge heights lower than your 65'3" ,plus antenna, in several spots.
The charted depth is quite a bit thinner than projected in most places as
funding for dredging has been inconsistent, especially in the last decade.
Only about 10% of the Intracostal is interesting, the rest is desolate
,which can have a beauty all its own, or else it is industrial. The 'Dismal
Swamp' in the desolate part is aptly named. The commercial watermen who use
'The Ditch' ,as it is called, mainly barely tolerate yachtsmen and often are
resentful for you 'getting in their way on their waterway' and the source
of their income. You can only run safely during daylight hours in most
places which limits you to 70-90 miles daily, not including unscheduled
waits for bridges that don't open on time and getting yourself unstuck when
running aground. As one of my Amel clients said after doing the Intracostal,
"I would prefer to wait until I get older and need a trawler yacht with no
mast and more reasonable draft before I ever do it again."



Other than that, I rarely have much of an opinion about anything.



Good luck with your adventure!

Gerhard,

When you rent the car in South Cyprus, make sure that the car is also allowed in North. Cyprus (Turkish Republic of North Cyprus). It may cost a little more. Also, when you cross the border to the TRNC, you probably will need to buy 3rd party liability insurance...this is available at the border. This is more of an inconvenience than a problem or expense.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Wind Generator

Hi Gary
As Jean-Pierre says, a wind gen is not producing much during a downwind sail. But at anchor it produces electricity both day and night.

We have 390 W solarpanels on top of our cockpit roof, and we have 2x100 W as mobile panels hanging on our rail when at anchor.
Toghether with our Silent Wind 400 wind generator we only run the diesel generator 2,5 hour a day and then our batteries are top loaded. A very windy and sunny day we keep our batteries top loaded with only naturall power. We could reduce the running time with one hour but then we have problems with producing water. We have been able to run the watermaker without using the diesel gen but the quality of the water was became not as good as we want it.

We have had our wind gen for 13 months, during the two first weeks of 2015 our wind gen produced more power than during the whole 2014. Yes it was very windy! Meaning in total it has produced some 500 Ah during those 13 months.

We have the wind gen mounted on a pole at starboard aft side.

Hello Gary,


We wanted to add a wind gen but upon investigation, as a RTW is done downwind, a wind generator is unlikely to produce much lecky bits during sailing.  Instead, as we'll be in largely sunny climes, we opted for solar panels mounted on a gantry which incorporates davits.  Looks OK too.
