Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] double bed in salon on maramu

Eric Lindholm
 

On my Maramu the extended board rests on the lip of the seat forward, and a small pipe sticks out of the "two inch hole" in the table when it is folded down to support the other end aft. The original pipe is approx 1" diameter by 4" long and affixed to the pedestal. Eric 105

Good luck with your rebuild.

hello
i'm tying to reinstate some 'lost' original installations on our maramu.
one of them being the double bed on port side in the salon. putting the
second wooden board under the port bench board is the easy part. this
one folds out toward the mid pedestal. fwd it lies on the short cross
bench. on the aft side it must lie on something as well. is the about
two inch hole in the down folded table the solution? could anybody show
or explain the item which was originally installed for that purpose?
thanks.

6 volt is the only way to go. you can discharge/ recharge a 6 volt
battery up to 1,000 times compared to a 12 volt, which the best only go
around 250. The plates are twice as thick on the 6 volt. I have used
them for at least 10 years, and would never go back. Two 6 volt
batteries provide almost the same amp hours as a 12 volt 8d, using only
two thirds the space, and they are a lot easier to get in and out of the
boat.

David, I guess I missed the 24 volt question. I just wanted to clarify
the
manner in which the batteries are connected. I have seen owners try to
connect
all of the negative terminals together, or the supply positive and
negative to
terminals used to wire the batteries in series with varying results,
ie melted
cables, sparks, or simply a connection to a 6 volt supply. Love this
site. Eric

Bill you connect the positive terminal of one battery to the negative
terminal
of another battery, and those two batteries equal one 12 volt battery.
You will
have one positive terminal( which I will call A terminal), and one
negative
terminal(which I will call B terminal) which are not connected to
anything, and
these are your new 12 volt positive and negative terminals. Make up
four sets
like this. Connect the 4 positive A terminals to each other, and the 4
negative
B terminals to each other just like you do your 12 volt batteries, and
then run
this to your battery switch. Use the largest battery cable you can
find
for all
connections, this is very important. These batteries have a lot of
power, and
undersized cable will not let you utilize all that is available. Eric

dlm48@aol.com wrote: cunfused i am

you will need FOUR 6V batteries wired in series to produce 24V

if you have EIGHT 6V batteries then you have two sets of 4 series wired
batteries wired in parallel to double the AH capacity

the only new wiring would be the series wiring as in the above example
six short piecies of wire

and so on

Eric & John,

I am intrigued by this 6 volt option. I have 12 house batteries.

. I assume that you would divide these into 4 parallel wired sets
of
3
batteries with an output of 6 volts per set.

. Then I assume that you would wire 2 of these sets of 3 in series
producing 12 volts and do the same with the other 2 sets of three.

. Lastly I assume that you wire the 2 12 volt pairs in series to
produce
24 volts.

I guess another option would be 3 sets of 4 wired in a series and then
connect the 3 series-wired sets parallel to produce 24 volts?

I assume that either method will require almost all new wiring? Any
input
will be appreciated.

Regards,

What batteries do you use? Have they got bolt and nut connectors?



I bought (expensive) Deka Saturated Glass Mat, 12 V, and forgot to
physically disconnect the inverter during a recent 4 month lay-up. This
caused such severe sulphation that the batteries are now for the skip.



The boat is in Sardinia.

David, I guess I missed the 24 volt question. I just wanted to clarify the
manner in which the batteries are connected. I have seen owners try to connect
all of the negative terminals together, or the supply positive and negative to
terminals used to wire the batteries in series with varying results, ie melted
cables, sparks, or simply a connection to a 6 volt supply. Love this site. Eric

Bill you connect the positive terminal of one battery to the negative

You will
have one positive terminal( which I will call A terminal), and one

these are your new 12 volt positive and negative terminals. Make up
four sets

Eric & John,

I am intrigued by this 6 volt option. I have 12 house batteries.

. I assume that you would divide these into 4 parallel wired sets
of
3
batteries with an output of 6 volts per set.

. Then I assume that you would wire 2 of these sets of 3 in series
producing 12 volts and do the same with the other 2 sets of three.

. Lastly I assume that you wire the 2 12 volt pairs in series to
produce
24 volts.

I guess another option would be 3 sets of 4 wired in a series and then
connect the 3 series-wired sets parallel to produce 24 volts?

I assume that either method will require almost all new wiring? Any
input
will be appreciated.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] BATTERIES FOR SULAJON SM #347

Eric Lindholm
 

6 volt is the only way to go. you can discharge/ recharge a 6 volt battery up to 1,000 times compared to a 12 volt, which the best only go around 250. The plates are twice as thick on the 6 volt. I have used them for at least 10 years, and would never go back. Two 6 volt batteries provide almost the same amp hours as a 12 volt 8d, using only two thirds the space, and they are a lot easier to get in and out of the boat.

Autoprops and revs

ianjenkins1946 <ianjudyjenkins@hotmail.com>
 

I wouldnt rush to give up the Autoprop. Ours is no. AP 3294LH, which was recalled for a new locking plate so we fitted the fixed prop to take us from the Caribbean to Ecuador, involving 6 days of motoring in the Pacific.Unless you put two Amels side by side with the different props its impossible to be sure which gives the better performance but we certainly felt the Autoprop had the edge under power and clearly has less resistance under sail.
We are in Brazil at the moment , between Santos and Rio, good motoring country as there is no wind here. Yesterday we did a little test. Bear in mind that Pen Azen is in full cruising mode, including a 15hp outboard,4 anchors, 500m of shorelines,every locker full to overflowing, 600l water , 350 fuel plus 100l in jerry cans in the lazarette, which also holds the second dinghy whilst we were towing the rib with a 2hp attached.Bimini was down but we had sun awnings up, covering both booms. With minimum wind, (4 knots apparent on the beam), we achieved these knots at these revs
1500--- 5.9
1600 6.0
1700 6.4
1800 6.8
1900 7.1
2000 7.4
2100 7.7
2200 7.8
2300 8.0
2400 8.2
2500 8.3
2600 8.5
2700 8.6
2800 8.7

In each case we took a conservative figure for the speed, taking the first decimal pint, so that if we were doing, say, 7.27 we recorded 7.2. Our top speed was 8.89, the pull of the rib making it inconsistent.
These figures are marginally down on the same test conducted when the boat was new, but we must now have an extra ton of stores on board and we didnt have a rib to tow in those days.
Is the log accurate? In 25,000 miles we have never had any reason to consider it anything other than the most accurate log we have ever had on a boat.
To me , this suggests that certainly the standard Volvo and Autoprop are well matched and maybe the performance of the turbo is the most likely culprit.
Happy motoring! Ian and Judy Jenkins, Pen Azen, SM 302, Ilha Grande, Brazil.


Speed vs RPM, Fuel tank cleaning

John and Anne on Bali Hai <hollamby@...>
 

In previous years I have found my Autoprop severely fouled after
leaving the boat in the water in the winter. This resulted in very
low engine revs until cleared. During the last haul out May 05 I
polished the prop and used Pellerclean. Several times during the
season I found that the engine revs were limited and dived to find
that the prop was fouled but only with lime/coral type encrustation
to a depth of about one eigth of an inch (2-3mm). It was quite hard
to remove and I am not impressed with Pellerclean. The boat spent
all last season in Malta in a marina which is relatively clean as
there are very few live/crap aboard owners. My test for build up is
to motor at full throttle to check that I can get 3,300 rpm. The
lime scale reduced this to about 2,200!I then cut the revs back to
take the unfair load off the engine until I clean the prop.
I have a hose about 10 metres long which I connect to the regulator
on the air bottle and to a spare mouthpiece so that I can deal with
the underside using only fins, wet suit,weight belt and gloves.
So far as carbon build up on the turbo is concerned I follow Yanmars
insructions and before turning off I rev up out of gear to 3,000+
for a few seconds and repeat if necessary to burn off any carbon
which comes out of the exhaust as white smoke. It is then important
to let the engine idle for a few minutes to allow it to cool and
lubricate the turbo.

My last boat had three tubes into the fuel tank, two for fuel out
and return and one for a heater.The fuel out and heater tubes went
into a filter which consisted of two brass plates separated by a
strip of mesh around the edge to act as the filter. A build up of
algae on the filter completely blocked it and it compressed like an
accordian! Luckily the tank was nearly empty so I was able to get at
the filter to remove it and throw it away. I then arranged the fuel
out pipe so that it was a couple of inches above the bottom of the
tank and put the unused heater pipe right down to the bottom of the
tank. This meant that I could connect a plastic tube to the top from
time to time to a small electric pump which was connected to another
tube to discharge the water and other grot into old clear plasic
bottles so that I could see when all the crud had been removed. I
then let the crud settle at the bottom of the bottles and decanted
the clean fuel back into the tank.
I have cleaned out the bottom of my Amel tank a couple of years ago
when it was nearly empty. I did this by removing the inspection
plate and putting a pipe down to the bottom and then pumping out
some of the contents into some big plastic tanks and then scrubbing
the bottom etc of the tank with a paint brush lashed onto end of the
pipe. Note the lashing must be tight and tape must not be used.
The dirty fuel was allowed to settle and most was poured back into
the tank through a Baha filter using only the finest mesh as this
leaves lots of room to avoid over flows, I never use the coarse and
medium mesh filters.I suspect that a prime cause of blockages is
adding algae killer to infected fuel. I now put my long copper tube
down to the very bottom of the tank every year and suck out any
crud/water which has settled whilst the boat is not in use.
One day,when the tank is nearly empty I will drain it and throw away
the internal filter.

Best wishes to all, John, SM 319
