I had a highly recommended surveyor ce to us, flew him in, put him up in a hotel and had high hopes. After purchase I found a few missed items, one of which was rather important so all in all I can not wholeheartedly recommend him.
Having said that, I am currently amidst 3 other SM owners and will ask them directly today although I believe none were from your immediate atea.
I'll check on that today and let you know what I learn.

Re: Water system use in freezing weather - Advice

jwdernehl@...
 


Ross,

I have a SM from 1992.  The water heater is in the engine room and the pump is below a deck plate in the galley. I do have the carpeting in all of the compartments.  I wish I did not have the carpeting, as it would be far easier for me to apply an insulation to the inside of the boat. If I do put insulation up against the carpet it would create huge mold issues on the back side.  But if you have a smooth surface to adhere insulation to, I would definitely try it. As long as there is no dead air space between the two surfaces.  I actually wrap the entire boat to prevent ice and snow build up in the decks. I do also have a vinyl dodger enclosure that I use as well.  

last week I purchased a new dehumidifier from Amazon UK that is 220v.  It is a dessicant dehumidifier, not a compressor type.  For cold weather dehumidifying this thing is amazing.  It pulls a huge amount of moisture out of the air and it does not matter if the air is cold(works from 1-35 celsius).  It is not good for warm weather use as it pumps out a decent amount of heat. PArt name EcoAir ECO DD122 Desiccant Simple Dehumidifier. There is a 110v option on Amazon US, but I wanted to just be able to plug right in to the 220v outlet. 
 
Hope that helps!

Duane,

Probably corroded for two reasons:
Close Proximity (just below) the anti-siphon vent for the toilet pumps...probably gets a salt mist from time to time
And dissimilar metals.between the valve and the manifold

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Raw Water Header

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Duane,


You will see 1 photo of the manifold after I cleaned it on BeBe 387. You will also see another photo of a 54 manifold with a stainless steel manifold above it. The stainless manifold is made-to-order by Emek in Turkey cagdas@... They are made to order because there are several variances of these. If you contact Emek Marine about this, send them a photo of yours showing all of the connections, the mounting hole centers, and the dimensions of each outlet pipe.

On BeBe 387, it is connected to the bonding circuit. I also got a large amount of corrosion, but stopped most of it after cleaning it and coating it with CorrosionX. 

Best,

Bill 387

Gelcoat repair

Peter
 

Hello all.

I got a scratch in the gelcoat (right above the waterline) and look for a repair set with the right colour. Do we have some kind of a colour code or a recommended colour which will come close to the original one?

Thank you,

Can anyone recommend one or more marine surveyors schooled in Amels (SM) for the mid-Atlantic? Specifically Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina. I hope to have the need of one in the next couple of weeks. If desired, please e-mail me at russ(dot)roberts(dot)va(at)gmail(dot)com.

Or a polypropylene strainer that's 1
1/4"  for $28.80 with SS screen from Grainger.  Keep
in mind that the "20 Mesh" screen has an open area
of 46% of the pipe diameter.  The flow rate would be
reduced by the area reduction and the drag around the mesh
wires so going up in size might be wise.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Marine Electrics IT

James Studdart
 

The cheaper versions of this strainer that cost teens of currency (dollar/euro/sterling) are brass. The cheapest bronze ones I've seen start around 30(dollar/euro/sterling). I know the Onan itself isn't bronze (copper-nickel for the heat exchanger?). I'm curious, is the more expensive (2-3x) bronze not worth it in this use case?

Cheers,
 James.

Hello Duane,

Look at the following pictures
http://www.amazon.com/Internal-Thread-Brass-Strainer-Connector/dp/B00IFVKCT0/
and
http://www.amazon.com/Strainers-NPT-Female/dp/B005Q37YQ4

You will see inside the mesh that will catch the parts (propeller blade in our case).

So yes you can unscrew, get the screen and see if there is any, etc.

I have not ordered from any of the link I mentioned above, this is just for pictures reference.
I am flying to the US for business next week and will try to find locally.

Also they are easier to find under "Y Strainer".

Hope that helps.

If this is just a plumbing Y, what stops the
impeller pieces?  In the photo included with the article,
the water has a straight-thru run (the two hose barbs), the
screen/filter is in the off-line part of the Y (plumbers
would refer to it as a clean-out).

I thought there must be some kind of diverter
in it, but if it's just a plumbing Y, that's not the
case.

JP,

I am afraid you are mistaken. The Amazon link that Alex posted is for a 1" brass filtered Y at $9.25 & FREE Shipping in the US.

Again, the over-taxed Brussels minions are getting a much worse deal.
