Significantly when I accepted the boat back from Amel after repairs, the Amel representative sailing with me said that in strong winds it would be a good idea to rig poles on both sides to lessen the side thrust on the mast.

I remember someone pointing out to me before I owned an Amel that the pole design was not a good idea due to the loads being so high up the mast. I believe that Amel learnt from my mishap and did away with the concept on the 54 by attaching the poles at the foot of the mast.

All good techniques. The key is that someone needs to be prepared to "catch" the pole when the blue line is eased. I like to lower the pole about 1-2 feet before easing the blue line, so that when the pole comes toward the boat it is about 6" to 1' above the rail, then we lower it and hook it to the rail on the inside of the rail. I usually ease the blue line, while Judy pulls on the sheet and red line and is prepared to catch. I also help with the catching with one hand. I have done this alone...you should practice this while at anchor with crew members.

Getting the long pole to swing out while someone is pulling on the blue line takes practice. If there is some roll to the boat, use the roll to your advantage...and always make sure that the swivel block on the bitter end of the long pole is horizontal...if not, you will have a difficult time getting it to swing out.

This is my procedure for setting and retrieving the long pole on the SM.
1. Set the short pole on the mast and attach the long pole and hook it on the rail.
2. Attach the fore guy, (blue line), the after guy, (red line), the down haul, (yellow line), and the pole lift. If from the factory, the lines are marked at the cleat point. I hope I have the colors correct.
3. Run the genoa sheet through the sheave on the end of the pole.
4. Deploy the pole by hauling rapidly on the fore guy. If the boat is rolling, use gravity to help by hauling when the boat rolls to the same side as the pole.
5. Unfurl the jib and sheet home.
6. Reverse the procedure for removing the pole. Furl the jib first and proceed from there.
7. Lower the pole to the level of the stanchion.
8. Maintain control of the pole by having a crew take up on the after guy as you ease the fore guy. If the boat is rolling, bring in the pole when the boat rolls to the pole side. Be sure the assisting crew is far enough aft that they will not be hit by the pole if control is lost. A bumper or cushion on the stanchion or rail will prevent damage should things go bad. I have never yet had a problem with the pole hitting the water although it could happen if the pole is lowered too much.

Hello Donato,


I just remembered that I have a new Leroy Somer gearbox I purchased from Emek Marine as a spare last year. If you need the gearbox to repair your boat, I'd be happy tp sell it to you, and I will just purchase another spare for myself. It was $1400.00 US from Emek Marine when I purchased it last year. 

We are a few miles away in Culebra with our SM, and you could probably ride the $5.00 ferry from Fajardo to here this afternoon to pick it up, or I can look for a way to ship it from here. They have very few services on Culebra, and I suspect shipping is not a great option, but I'd be willing to check into it. We are also planning to be in Fajardo on December 1st, but I would guess you may need the part sooner. 

Let me know if you are interested soon, as we are planning to sail over to Vieques on Saturday.

Thanks for responding Donato. I remember standing on the deck of SM 53 #479 at La Rochelle and holding back a tear as that was the last one built before the molds were retired. Just wanted to make sure my memory was correct, something I am afraid I must do more often these days!

Goodmorning,

Unfortunately my partner in Portorico has to change the gears on the
electric line tender on the boom of our SM 2000 (year 2004).
He is having the assistance of a local 'technician' but unsuccesfully.
The gears are completely gone and need to dismantle the whole line
tender since it seems blocked (rust, salt etc).
How to start to free the vertical shaft ? starting from the cap on
top, or freeing the bottom gears first.
I apologize for my very poor description.
Any suggestions ?
Is there any drawing on the net ?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] DOLPHIN carger 24 volt 100 A

Ian Shepherd
 

Giovanni,

does the charger work for a short period then shut down? The cooling fans on the Reya chargers do tend to fail regularly. I replace them with 24V computer fans using self tapping screws from the outside of the casing which is far less fiddly than the original nuts, washers and bolts.

I am also going to fit 24V regulators in the feed to the fan as I believe that when the charger voltage rises to 28.2V, it may be over stressing the fan motor.

Good luck.

Re: Marine Electronics - Autopilot

mkbiz@...
 

Hi Jay,

I did the same on my Maramu, though I use a B&G control unit. I assume the Mango is not so much different from it.
I installed a Raymarine Lineardrive Type 2 under the aft cabin bunk. I got a stainless steel arm welded to one of the two sides of the existing "handles" where the steering cables are attached.
I had to drill a hole into both the side of the bunk and the compartment with the rudder shaft to connect the "arm" to the drive piston.

Don't have a photo of the complete installation here, only can show you what happened when the piston got loose and broke an additional hole into the sid of the bunk ;)

I kept the original autopilot as a backup.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Mango Change to Raymarine Autopilot - add a Linear Drive

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Jay,

All of the Raymarine course computers I have seen are NOT "married" to Raymarine drives and these will control almost any electrical or hydraulic drive. So, if I were you I would go to Raymarine and download the installation manual of the new Raymarine system for information and contact your local Raymarine dealer.

You may want to install an A/B switch to switch the connection between the existing chain drive and the linear drive that you plan to install on the quadrant. One trick is that you will likely have to switch polarity of the drive motor for the Linear drive because the physical orientation will be reverse the physical orientation of the existing rotary drive. Raymarine course computers change a drive's change direction by reversing polarity...remember this when installing that linear drive. You can switch polarity at the A/B switch for the motor of the additional drive.

Since the Mango and the Super Maramu have the same hull except for the portion aft of the watertight bulkhead on the forward side of the rear lazzerette, I assume that you may have little problems fitting a Raymarine Type 2 Long Linear Drive 12VDC Drive...assuming that the Mango is its original 12VDC, you will probably have no problems installing a Raymarine 12VDC system and you will likely be able to switch between the two drives.

Apparently David Pawley pawleyd"at"gmail.com has some experience with doing this with a Neco.

Take a look at these photos of a Super Maramu Linear Drive by Raymarine: 
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/amelyachtowners/search/photos?query=autopilot#zax/albums_1112519422


Good luck!

And I would not be surprised if a Mango owner hasn't done the same thisng and add more to this thread.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Salt water in the bilge

joseph mc donnell
 

The intake hose on the head in our Santorin does not have an anti siphon loop just seals to keep the water out. If memory seves me its the same on the SM2000  and if the choker valve is worn or has a build up of calcium it will leak water back into the head. Despite the good design not all water ends up in the shower basin under the grating. The fibreglass floor under the head slopes twords the shower basin when on an even keel, but when on a tack presents a level surface for water to slop out of the head, sit on that surface and find a way past the stainless steel inspection plate or the back of the Head basin. Don't taste the water.

Marine Electronics - Autopilot

jwagam@...
 

Hello All,


This is my first post here. I am closing on a 1986 Amel Mango and need to replace the electronics. I am planning on buying the new Raymarine eS system and replacing the existing chain driven autopilot. Does anybody have any thoughts on the best way to connect the Raymarine Evolution autopilot?

Thank You
Jay Wagamon

Donato,

           Go into the Files section and look under Amelliahona Outhaul Gearbox written by Gary Silver and possibly Bill Rouse of Bebe.
You will get very clear instructions how to proceed.
Also, it would be much better to have the new seals, gears and bearings before you start.
Regards,
Trevor

Goodmorning,

Unfortunately my partner in Portorico has to change the gears on the
electric line tender on the boom of our SM 2000 (year 2004).
He is having the assistance of a local 'technician' but unsuccesfully.
The gears are completely gone and need to dismantle the whole line
tender since it seems blocked (rust, salt etc).
How to start to free the vertical shaft ? starting from the cap on
top, or freeing the bottom gears first.
I apologize for my very poor description.
Any suggestions ?
Is there any drawing on the net ?
Many thanks for your help
