Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Engine Smoke

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Gerhard,

I am guessing, but I think that there are two possibilities:

Most likely 1 - 3:
#1 is that the new nozzles are out of specification. I am guessing that your mechanic changed injector nozzles. My experience on the same engine is that nozzles last about 1000 hours. Have the nozzles tested.

#2 is that the valves need adjustment.

#3 have you checked your AutoProp? If is has ANY fouling or growth, the AutoProp fouling is causing it to "bite" too deep into the water.

It is probably NOT the pump because smoking is caused by excess fuel.

The Yanmar turbo will smoke a little and will leave a diesel smudge on the hull.

How long have you owned this boat?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Engine Coolant Leak

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Gerhard,

Have you replaced the water heater? If not it is 14 years old and probably is where your leak is.

But, to answer your question, yes coolant could escape the closed system at the Yanmar heat exchanger, and at the water heater.

Why don't you try this.

Remove both hoses from the water heater. This will be difficult because I believe Amel uses an adheisive. You may have to cut them, but there is probably enough hose that this will not be a problem. Connect the two hose ends together using a piece of pipe. If the loss of coolant stops, replace the water heater.

If it does not, I suspect that your professional mechanic did not replace the O rings and gaskets on the heat exchanger because they are a little difficult to get. You, or a mechanic will need to disassemble the heat exchanger again. Get new O rings and gaskets before you start.

Gerhard,
I had the opposite problem and found my overflow tank filling up whether running the engine or sitting at the dock.  It was a leak in the water heater heat exchanger.  When I figured that out, I left the boat for a couple of weeks with the fresh water pump off (unpressurized).  There was some leakage from the heat exchanger into the fresh water system.  That's a problem that could cause health issues.
I suspect that your problem is in the engine heat exchanger, but make sure you aren't getting antifreeze in your water tanks.

Re: Engine Coolant Leak

Dear Gerhard,
                   It looks as if engine water heating element inside your calorifer has got pin holes.
When the water warms up inside the calorifer it has to expand, the pressure increases inside and it pushes the coolant back through your engine and out through the plastic reservoir.
The calorifer on the older boats sensibly have an anode to stop internal corrosion.
Unfortunately the later models do not and if this is a correct diagnosis then you will have to replace the calorifer.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] contacting amel for parts

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Jeff,

I should have told you to send an email, but you were asking how to dial a number.

When you send an email for parts, I find it best to carefully list the part, remembering the language difference and to include a photo of that part...be sure to label the photo with the same description that you use in the email.  Include your model and hull number. Within about 3 working days you should receive a reply requesting a credit card for payment. If you have not heard anything in 4 working days, send a "FOLLOW-UP" email.

Amel has always shipped me via FedEx with the part arriving within a week. There will be no VAT if shipped outside the EU, but VAT will be added, if inside.

If you need something urgently, tell them in your first email and include the credit card. If Amel has the part, you should be able to receive it within a week, anywhere in the world.

Thanks for the help everyone.

I was able to leave a message thru the phone number provided on the Amel site. It turns out that I was dialing the right number, it was just busy every time I called.
I received an email response as I requested, and was directed to contact Maud Touillet or Thierry Billard at sav@...,, and to request my parts from them. 
I sent them an email this morning explaining the what the parts were, so I'll see how it goes from here.It seems like an easy enough way to go about acquiring parts, as long as it's not crisis mode. If that were the case, I guess the direct line given in their email response was 33 (0) 546 55 00 75. For a call from the US, I assume a prefix number to dial before that number would be 011.
Assuming that my needed parts (small size wise) were available, What is the expected amount of time and the preferred means of shipping? My parts could fit in a large envelope.

ianjenkins1946 <ianjudyjenkins@hotmail.com>
 

Hi Bob,    Sorry, can't help you there. I understand that the problem was with the gelcoat rather than the fibreglass. If that's right, then once the gelcoat has been replaced or dried out sufficiently to take the necessary coats of epoxy the problem should not reoccur. I am no expert in these matters but from my general understanding blisters are a problem that can be effectively fixed  for the long term these days.

Dennis,      I think you will find that it was a 1985 problem--the main manufacturers of gelcoat widely used in Europe at the time produced a bad batch that year . It almost put Jeanneau out of business and from memory they recovered the Franc equivalent of about £20m. in damages in the subsequent litigation-- a huge sum in those days

I had considerable blistering on Libertad when purchased but fortunately it turned out to be only in the antifoul as the last coat was incompatible with the previous one or the prep work was poorly executed.  I have been following this site for about ten years and in all that time I have not heard of widespread blistering on the Maramu, so I think I can safely say that blistering is not a common/major problem.

Sorry, can't comment on the repair process or the cost but my gut says 25K nzd seems a bit steep.  Perhaps NZL isn't the place for economical repairs it was five years ago.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Interior Upholstery

Hello Chris,

We wanted another hanging cabinet and decided to removal the single berth to stbd.  This would not be a problem for us…  grand kids are all past the “ankle biter” stage.

We’ll still have 6 proper berths… we also needed more storage aft after we decided to fit a full size washing machine in the position previously used as a wet locker.  (We also have full canvas cockpit enclosures meaning that the wet locker would not be needed often.)

So we came up with the idea to widen the master berth as well and order proper mattress to fit.  We also removed the hull inner liner on the port side of the berth… gave more width.  Also sacrificed the lee boards and replaced with cloth ones.  How expensive?  No idea… we’re gonna live aboard for 7-10 years and wanted a more modern, reliable and comfortable boat.  

The photos are not good.  Better ones coming when I get aboard.  One last needed solution is how to prevent wear on the under side of the mattress from the rudder post…. Riza is working on it…

Here you go for the pics…

Jeff,

Depending where you are calling from you call 011 (from the USA)

Then 33 France country code then 546 La Rochelle city code and then the local number 551731. Do not dial the 0 between the 33 and the 546.

 

Calling from out of the country sometimes you have to dial + instead of 011. To dial a + you hold down the o button.

Hello,

I am trying to contact Amel to order a few parts, something I haven't done before.

The number I see to use is 330546551731, and I was told that to dial direct, I needed to preface the call by dialing 011. Seems like a hell of a lot of numbers, however I haven't had to dial France before.

If anyone would be kind enough to let me know if that is the number, or if there is another one to use, I would be greatly appreciative of that information.

I tried emailing and never received a response. It would seem that emailing would be a much more efficient means to order parts. The email I used was provided on the Amel website.

I have actually dialed the number sequence I listed above, and never get through, it always sounds busy. The operator says she is connecting my call, so I assume that the number is correct.

Bill,

 

I have ordered the Ivory UltraLeather for the salon and Riza has recommended Sunbrella throughout the rest of the interior but we are unsure how that would look. What are your thoughts?

 

Cheers

Eric,

I was reading cleaning info yesterday. There is a method for cleaning ballpoint ink, but you have do act quickly...following from ultraleather:

Ballpoint Pen Ink**
**For tough stains clean using isopropyl/rubbing alcohol. After cleaning, rinse surface with clean water and wipe dry. Prompt attention is important for successful removal of any stain.

We use smooth ultra leather for props in our jewelry stores. The only problem with this material is that if you stain it with a pen it is absolutely impossible to remove,

Hi Paul,

To date, I only have quotes to do the Salon areawithr new fabric and cushions. For Alcantara the price was 4000 euro and for UltraLeather it is 6200 euro. For the rest of the insides, Riza recommends Sunbrella but I do not have a quote for that yet.

The upholstery looks great, may I ask for the cost to change? We just bought a SM where it's soon time to change as well. we will probably convert to a saloon table that drops down, not for a bunk but just a nice and cosy place to rest when weather do not allow to do that in the cockpit.

Try Skype, Jeff.  It's reliable, great sound, dirt cheap.  I never make an international call any other way.  I've even got it on my cell phone...you dont even need to carry your computer.

Thanks for all the responses. 
I'm on LI,NY.
While I appreciate the skype idea, I have to admit that I've never gone there before. I'll stick with the email or phone route, and hope it works.
Regards to all,

Bill,
You are right, Hydranet for triradial cut is on the market with different weights. The right choise is one of the sailmaker ' tasks. I was only reminding that there is also a version for crosscut which is cheaper but cannot  be used for triradial cut. We asked for triradial cut and our sails have indeed a really improved performance than the original ones.

I am not sure about hydranet for crosscut because I was not going to consider crosscut.  But there are at least 3 different weights of hydranet.

Hi,
To all of you who are interested in having a quotation for new hydranet sails, I remind that there are two different hydranet fabrics: one is for crosscut and the other is for triradial cut (this latter with a lot of spectra inside and with a higher price). We got this second fabric for our sails. 


The references for the sailmaker (connected to Banks Sail) are:
E-mail info@...
Mobile +39 392 2514971 Francesca
They are located in Leghorn (Livorno) Italy. 
For those who are sailing in the tyrrenian sea I suggest to visit our base port Marina Cala de' Medici (15 miles south Leghorn). 

Fair winds!

Hello!

We will buy new sails for 2016 season as our newly bought SM sails are in poor condition, however will use this season to learn how it is to sail on own a SM before making major investment, our thought is hydranet triradial probably with circular profile battens to get a more stable leach. so please send contact details for Banks. 
I learned that a sail cloth named Vectron are at lower price and have at least same "performance" i.e low stretch and good durability. Have any of you any experiences in VECTRON
