It would be cold blooded and ungrateful if I would not mention Moonshot, our wonderful, faithful and reliable SuperMaramu 2000 (vintage 2003) who we thought will never part with. Now I can understand when people write about how hard it is to part with one's boat, and there are days when I wish I could find a place or a reason to keep Moonshot. We loved this boat and we pampered her (putting last year new sails, new Bimini and new Furuno) and maintained her professionally for years no expenses spared. But sadly Moonshot is now looking for a deserving new owner and I will be grateful if you would help find him or her. (BlueNose, Glen Walters, 401-855-4355)

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Question regarding procedures for aligning engine on SM

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Where are you now? Do you have a name and/or boat name?

What is your Amel Model, engine type, and hull number?

Have you checked for a fouled prop...even mono-filament fishing line or one big barnacle can foul an AutoProp which will cause serious vibrations.

Without knowing hardly anything about you or your boat, my suggestion is to contact Amel Martinique and ask them for a recommendation of someone near you for an analysis of your situation. 

Continuing to run the engine with vibrations can cause serious damages.

I have one question today. It seems like we have a lot of vibration from our engine and from what I can tell, it doesn't seem to come from any misalignment of the engine to the C drive system,  but rather from the entire engine bed which may have shifted position. The reason I think this, is that even when the transmission is out of gear, there is tremendous vibration, particularly at idle, and when I physically 'pull up' on the left side of the engine, the vibration lessens dramatically, where-as if I lift up up on the starboard side, the vibration becomes even worse.

So my questions are: What is the correct procedure for ensuring that the alignment of the four 'engine bed mounts' is correct? Am I right in guessing that the engine bed should be aligned so that there is no undue pressure of the entire engine on the single rubber washer/bolt at the bottom of the C drive on the keel? I just don't want anything to wear out prematurely and think that I need to eliminate, as much as is possible, the vibration on the drive train.
So my questions in detail are:
If I wanted to realign the engine bed properly, what are the steps that must be taken in order to achieve this?
I do have a mechanic here who claims to have experience with Amels, but he told me that this realignment could only be done by 'feel.' This seems rather 'imprecise', so is there a more technical solution? Even if I only make it just a little 'better' until I can get back up to the Amel service center in Martinique, I don't want to keep running the engine this way in case I break something!
We were thinking of sailing to Trinidad in hopes of finding a mechanic who is familiar with Amels there. Does anyone know of a mechanic in either in Grenada or Trinidad who might be able to help us?

We have been 5 years in Turkey and were always able to get the right (camping) gas.
However the are not in official labeled "camping gaz" bottles. Also the colors vary.
We learned that you have to explicitly ask for camping gas. They also use the same type of bottles for non camping gas.

We have a 2-drawer fridge we both love. It's made by Vitrifrigo, the RF series, but it didn't fit exactly into the available fridge hole. We had to alter the cabinetry a bit. Our boat is a 1992-vintage Super Maramu hull 72.

Good things about the fridge:
Not as much cold escapes when you open the drawers, so you can open them multiple times while making dinner and not have the internal temperature of the fridge warm up so much as with front-door fridges. You're only opening half the fridge at a time if you just open one drawer of the two, so it's significantly more efficient.

Lots of storage capacity. You can pack in way more food than the original fridge allowed.

It takes whatever kind of electricity you want to feed it.

It runs quietly. The compressor is located behind the lowest drawer. The frost drain discharges water from melted frost into a purpose-designed plate that sits above the compressor and uses the heat generated from the running compressor to evaporate any melted frost draining out.

The internal area is divided up into smaller compartments so your food doesn't slide around and you can wedge things in easily to prevent movement while at sea.

When you open the fridge door while under way, food doesn't fly out and roll around on the floor of the galley causing chaos. It just stays securely in place.

Now for the bad things:

If you're not careful, you can potentially freeze delicate vegetables placed in the top drawer's sliding basket if the basket slides itself backward next to the evaporator plate. Avoid this by sliding the basket toward the front of the drawer as you close the drawer.

It didn't quite fit perfectly into the hole, so we had to cut back our under-sink cabinet face a little. Now, the cabinet beneath our sink where the plumbing hoses live is narrower than it used to be. We didn't have to change the inside of the cabinet, just the door and door-frame.

We shaved off about 1/4 inch (6mm?) from the cabinet trim closest to the oven. We also cut about 10 cm (estimate) from the other side of the fridge opening. This made the door beneath the sink narrower.

Also, one part of the installation was nerve wracking because the galley aisle was barely wide enough to allow us to lower the fridge into it before pushing it aft into the fridge hole beneath the counter top. In fact, we had to remove the cabinet door across from it in order to give us enough room to lower the unit to the floor and then slide it into place. After installation, we put the cabinet door across from the fridge back on.

There's no problem with the fore and aft clearance when opening the drawers. However, we had to be careful when shaving off the small amount of the cabinet trim to the right of the fridge (as you're standing in front of it looking at it) because the oven handle sticks out. If you cut too much away, your fridge will end up too close to your oven and the oven door handle will impede the opening of the top fridge drawer. (Of course, this may not be true for you if you have a different oven or have more room in that area because your Amel is a different model or vintage.

 We LOVE our drawer fridge. It was a great choice if you're willing to shave back a little of the under-sink cabinetry.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Inverter Grounding

eric freedman
 

I took a look at the back of my  110 volt inverter last night. Just a positive and negative going to the circuit breaker.

However Amel tie wrapped a yellow/green  wire nearby in case someone wanted to be in accordance with ABYC code.

Obviously not a good idea

Chris,

I apologize but I cannot follow your "ground" and "neutral" terminology. I am certainly not an electrician or an electrical expert. And your electrician is most likely a good electrician, but probably has limited experience with a marine environment such as Amel'a sophisticated wiring schemes that help us avoid electrolysis.

Before I make my point to you, let's agree on the following terminology:

230VAC 50Htz:
Load (Live or Positive wire) at 230VAC - BROWN
Return (Neutral or Negative wire) - BLUE
Earth (Ground) - GREEN/YELLOW

110VAC 60Htz:
Live (Positive) at 110VAC - BLACK
Neutral (Negative) - WHITE
Ground (Earth) - GREEN

220VAC 60Htz:
Live (Positive) at 110VAC 60Htz RED
Live (Positive) at 110VAC 60Htz BLACK
Neutral (Negative) - WHITE
Ground (Earth) - GREEN

DC or Direct Current of any voltage:
Positive - RED in US, RED or BROWN in EU
Negative - BLACK in US, BLACK or BLUE in EU

The EU inverter most assuredly has a three wire connection to 230VAC 50Htz:
Load (Live or Positive wire) at 230VAC - BROWN
Return (Neutral or Negative wire) - BLUE
Earth (Ground) - GREEN/YELLOW but NOT the green/yellow Amel bonding system

And, the EU inverter has a two wire connection to the battery bank:
Positive - Amel uses RED
Negative - Amel uses BLACK

MY IMPORTANT POINT TO YOU IS:
If internally your inverter has a connection between the Battery Bank Negative BLACK WIRE and the 230VAC 50HTZ Earth, you may have an electrolysis problem. AND, that may have been the reason that Earth was not connected. You need to know if there is an internal connection between the Battery Bank Negative and Earth. Because if there is, I would forgo the Earth connection to the inverter.

Good Morning and thanks all,

There are Neutral connections for both AC Input and AC Output.

I think it depends what you mean by “grounded” – my understanding of these things is that with an inverter, like a generator and the boat side of an isolation transformer that one of the AC 230v outputs (nominated as neutral) provides the grounding or earth point for your AC system i.e. the  “common return path for electric current”.

 

So when you say the inverter do you mean the casing or the AC output earth as the latter is already the reference ground in the system?

Re: Amel 54 Mainsail furler removal

Mohammad Shirloo
 

Hi Paul;

I just removed and reinstalled a new furler on our 54. The motor at first appears wider than the profile but it is not. You have to make sure that you have removed the 4 upper screws and the two lower ones that hold the motor in place. From the picture you posted, you have already done this.

There are rubber inserts at the screw locations in the body of the motor. This may make it more difficult for the motor to be removed.

Try rotating the motor in the mast profile about 45 degrees and pull firmly from the top of the motor . It will pull out from the top and you then can see the rubber inserts and pull out the bottom as well. Take care not to lose the inserts.

The wires then need to be disconnected in the forward port cabin locker and fed from the access panel in the mast.

Good luck
