Hi Mark. As I mentioned, this unit is not similar to what you have on your SM 53. Counter rotating dual props. Better seals. It is an improvement in every way. No, not able to be retrofitted....

Hi Jeff. Your bow thruster is actually a SIDEPOWER drive unit with an Amel designed and manufactured extension and retraction unit. You will have information on the unit in the ‘black’ binders for all the machinery/options. It is serviced and supported by the marine giant IMTRA here in North America. www.imtra.com <http://www.imtra.com> . They have the zincs as will most of the bigger/better shipyards as these units are used quite extensively these days. I replaced mine twice and got them from the guy who serviced the bottom for me, Silvio at P&S Services at Lauderdale Marine Center, who, in my experience is as good as they get for anything related to boat bottom servicing, from his stock. They are not hard to source. Have fun with your AMEL.

I'm currently hauled out, and returned to the boat to finalize plans to launch.

I noticed that there are 2 zincs on the bow thruster propellors. Mine are about 1/3 gone, and I was wondering if any 54 owners have found a source other then Amel to get them. I'm going to see what I can find here in Charleston, but they look like they may be a custom item. I will make sure the screws come out easily so that they can be replaced while in the water, in any case/

Re: ZF Hurth Transmission troubles

Craig Briggs
 

Hi Duane,
The white froth, as Olivier notes, suggests water mixing in with the transmission oil via the heat exchanger. At the same time the puddle below suggests you check the washer around the drain plug. Mine is a metal washer and was totally corroded away on one side causing leakage - easy fix, although I had to use a non-metalic washer. The white froth could just be air and oil.
Btw, where in West Palm is Wanderer? We may head up that way shortly.
Cheers, Craig Briggs, SN#68 Sangaris, in Fort Lahdeedah.

Sharki bow thruster leaking

n33077@...
 

I've re-built my Sharki bow thruster 2 times now and it is still leaking. I've cleaned the surfaces carefully, replaced the seals twice, made sure it was seated and still cannot stop the leak. The only thing I can think if is that the shaft might so worn that it won't rest against the seal. 


Any thoughts?  Pictures are in the Photos folders under Sharki Bow Thruster

I talked to Schabauer this morning. Your Timer is not available any more.
Could you check  if you have an EATON ( white ) timer or a Siemens ( metallic and brown ).
Schabauer says that EATON usuall doesnt fail. What is the exact failure of the dishwasher?

Hi Drew,

Thanks for the info.  I fear you're spot on with your prognosis regarding the days of dishwashers on board SMs being numbered.  With a "manufacture discontinued" product, the parts are essentially now made out of "Unobtainium". 

I've struggled with the reality that I could go to a lot of trouble and expense replacing the timer, only to discover the dishwasher still doesn't work.  Even if it does solve the present problem, it's only a matter of time until the next unavailable part fails.

I'll wait to see what Leo can find out tomorrow, but maybe it's time to accept the inevitable.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: FW: refrigerator/freezer access

Ann-Sofie Svanberg <kanalmamman@...>
 


Hi Mark,
We used Frigoboat W35F for the aft box and is using it primarily as Fridge, however we also used it as Freezer during our first Atlantic crossing. The forward box is equipped with an W50F compressor and is working as freezer. Additional to the compressors are one control unit that manage both compressors and one circulation pump that takes the cooling water from the water tank. We had two stainless steel pipes with treads for nuts on the top that been inserted through new drilled holes on top of the tank just aft of the washing machine. Length of the pipes, do not remember but intake pipe was ending 10 cm from the bottom of the tank and the return mounted 30 cm away was ending 25 cm from the bottom of the tank.
It is an easy installation has proven very reliable since installed 2008. We carry one circulation pump and one control unit as spare parts.
We reduced our power consumption with more than 50% after installation was completed. We also re-insulated the forward box to increase power efficiency. 
We bought the equipment from Frigoboat, you find it on the web.
Please feel free to come back if you have further questions.

Best regards,

Ann-Sofie and Jonas

Ross you have a Lofrans windlass that is sold/serviced by Imtra in the USA. www.imtra.com <http://www.imtra.com> . They have good folks in service who can get you the parts you need. They will tell you where to look for the serial number or will ask you to take a few photos for identification. Happy Springtime!

Hello, Do any of you know the manufacturer and even the model number of the Amel supplied windless on my Maramu #261 from 1989 ? There are no markings on it to identify. The PO had it "rebuilt"and when I take the cover off to wiggle my brushes they are looser and smaller that it looks like they should be. I am not sure if it is the wrong brushes or if there is a sleeve missing that they are supposed to slide in. My meter indicates continuity through the brushes but they don't look right to me. The windlass only works intermittently and when the brushes are disturbed it will fix it for a little while.

Happy Spring,

Ross in nyc



Also... are there any photos or plans for an arch / davit for my Maramu floating around?.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] ZF Hurth Transmission troubles

I believe you have a leak in your tranny cooler.

Just follow Oliviers instructions. Changing the cooler is very simple. If you determine that is the problem

Here is my correspondence with a USA distributor. It uses the 3367 end caps. It is the DC60 bsp cooler

If they do not have the DC60 in stock – wait for it. I ordered the longer one and it was a pill to install.

If you have a Yanmar engine there is a heat exchanger on the starboard rail of the engine.

They are available from a company in Massachusetts for about $200-

If you see oil on the exhaust water after filling the transmission- that is your problem.
