Bill- I googled the heater name and came up with a website that appears to have a manual on line.  It is not in English.

Anybody have a copy of the manual they could upload to the forum for the Fakir Hobby S heater?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Engine RPM vs Boat speed for Amel-Super-Maramu 2000

Joel,
Thanks a lot. I have an original Autoprop.
I will check my tachometer.
I appreciate your help.

Vladimir, with your 75 H.P. engine, if you have a Max-Prop, that speed and RPM are about right, well within the range. If you have an Auto-Prop, the RPM are about 600 slower and that speed is a bit slower than normal by about ½ a knot. All things considered, nothing for concern and within normal ‘range’.

However, keep this in mind. In 35 years of selling used Amel’s by the hundreds, I have NEVER seen a tachometer on an Amel , or any other boat for that matter, after being tested with a certified pulse/stroboscopic tachometer, where the tachometer on the boat was less than 100 RPM too fast or too slow, and many times more than 100 RPM, sometimes a lot more. Tachometers are notoriously inaccurate, especially modern ones which take their information from an electrical pulse from the alternator or other source rather than an engine to tachometer rotating cable. If you are using accurate tide charts and GPS and something does not add up, have your tachometer tested, it’s inexpensive and easy to do so. It is often the culprit.

Have fun with your Amel, Joel

Joel,

Max RPM is 2900 at 8.2 kn speed.
Is this OK?

I bought my boat several months
ago. Boat was made in 2002, she has 75 HP Yanmar engine.

I decide to establish my boat performance characteristic. I
tested boat speed at three different engine RPM. My test
results are as follows:
Engine RPM Boat speed in
KN

1500.
4.7

2000.
6.3

2500.
7.5
Boat speed test minimised current or wind
effects. The speed was taking from GPS at maximum stable
speed.

I wonder if those results are as good as expected or not. Do
we have any similar data from Amel?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Engine RPM vs Boat speed for Amel-Super-Maramu 2,000

VLADIMIR SONSEV
 

I use original Autoprop. Previous owner told me that he never ran the boat at more than 2,000 RPM. I am very far from home (Annapolis MD) and I try to be very conservative.  I will run at full throttle later on closer to home.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] winter marinas in Greece

Ann-Sofie Svanberg <kanalmamman@...>
 

I took the liberty to change the subject line....

An other possibility is in Aghios Nikolaos on northeast coast of Crete. It is a night sail from Rohdes. 
A very nice marina where you can choose to have your boat in water or on land. Travel lift to take you out of the water.
The Marina is in the center of the town, and you have about 1 hour transfer to the airport in Heraklion.
If you choose to spend the winter onboard your boat, there is a nice community during the winters, nice walks are arranged every week. Also you have a lot to explore on Crete.

We have been there for two winters and just loved it.

Dear Gerhard,

I reached Rhodes after a long summer cruise from Porto Karras (Halkidiki) to Kastellorizo, my intention was to leave Sisila (Amel Santorin #84) in Leros, but I was not able to reach the Marina, neither one, due to strong Northern winds I had last week of holidays, therefore I left the boat in Rhodes. Mandraki was too crowded and the fact that it is inside the old town made me some issues on security, Rhodes New Marina was available and convenient enough, a bit more than 10€/day for in water winterizing, a bit expensive for the services provided. The problems are that the Marina is actually still a construction site, but security is assured. Services are limited to a toilet, no lifting facilities neither the possibility to leave the boat on the hard. Also, when North winds blow for several days, a huge swell interest the boats, in fact a protection jetty is under construction at the entrance. The solution is to keep the boat some 3-4meters from dock, to be safe. This way the boat is accessible only with the tender. The Marina personnel, anyhow, is conscious of these limitations, and provides great help for safe mooring and custody.
In February or so I will move the boat to the boatyard Nereus (www.nereusboatyard.com mail nereus@...), they have a huge new travellift, even if the yard is extremely crowded, you have to book well in advance. Marina personnel offered to move the boat on my behalf.
In noonsite.com you will find on the new Rhodes Marina similar considerations
hope this helps

Re: Rudder Anode

Duane Siegfri
 

Alan,

I assumed that's what most would do and I assume it's easy enough to accomplish. 

One of the anode suppliers noted there was a stainless steel nut embedded in one of the halves.  That would be a bit tougher drilling.  Do you recall what size of drill bit was used?

I am also wondering how the electrical connection is made.  Is it through the stainless bolt and the metal sleeve in the rudder?  Or is it contact between the end of the sleeve to the anode?  Both of these seem less than sure things and would warrant a bit of 1000 grit wet dry paper to improve the electrical conductivity.

Re: Changes to Yahoo

Hi All,

Although not (yet) an owner, I had a brief side discussion also with Bill from BeBe last year about the structure and so on of the most-valuable information on this group.

I elective that it would be useful to group info by Model / Hull number, with perhaps a generic top-level "00" directory, relating to spares/parts, and any other info of a generic nature of interest to all parties.

And then, for and withing the directory for each model/type, a directory structure expanding on Bill's as proposed, something like:

Design
Hull
Deck
Ground Tackle
Spars
Standing Rigging
Sails
Furling Systems
Running Rigging
Winches
Steering
Bowthruster
Hull Fittings
Deck Fittings
Safety Gear
LPG/Gas systems
Fire Monitoring & Control
Salt water systems
Fresh water systems
Bilge water systems
Diesel Fuel System
Main Engine
Gearbox
C-Drive

- 12VDC House/Nav
Navigation
- Binnacle Compass
- Fluxgate Compass
- Chronometer
- Barometer

- Knot-meter & Log
- Depth sounder
- GPS

- Autopilot (controller)
NAV Lighting
- Anchor Light
- Masthead Tricolour
- Running (Deck)
- Steaming
- Stern Light
- Deck Lights
Surveillance
- Search Light
- Radar
- AIS
- Sonar

- Horn / Bell
- VHF (fixed)
- VHF (mobile)
- HF/SSB
- Satellite
Interior Lighting
Refrigeration
Deep-freeze
Stove
Cook Top
Microwave
Dishwasher
Washing Machine
Air Conditioning
Space Heating
Tender / Dinghy

Granted, an extensive listing, but then so too are the systems that come as 'Standard'.  (I placed some sub-headings in there too, but for only some top-level headings.)  Some headings could be 'nested' - for example, engine, gear-box, C-drive, shaft, prop, cold all be collapsed under "Propulsion" - but each of these topics is probably big enough to get a headline of it's own, so elevated to a higher level for better visibility and navigation of the various topics).

These headings could provide the basis for a directory structure.

I would thing that, within each directory/folder,  there may be benefit of have sub-directories for each of:
- Description & Specifications
- Operation & Checklists
- Faults & Troubleshooting
- Service Schedule
- Maintenance Procedures
- Parts, Tools & Spares

I would expect also that - if there is not already one existing - it may be useful to compile a master maintenance schedule, based on engine/genset hours, and time (such as 3/6/9/12/24/36 months).

Just my two pence worth, as I've tried to file information systematically as I've been coming to grips with both the systems complexity and the wealth of information available from different sources.

Hope this offering provides some benefit to the greater community.

And with best regards,

David

Alain,  Thanks for checking that out.  True, the .PDF is not loaded yet.  Had to catch a plane and ran out of time.  I'll haul the laptop to the marina today and see if I can't finish that up.  A 24,000 page document!  I will do it again when a "cutover" date is set and that wy I won;t feel so bad about leaving months of new stuff behind.  :)

Ian,

I know there are ways to reset the password on Yahoo (I've forgotten mine a lot).  I think they always sent my verification codes to my 2nd email account though.  ALl I can think of is to maybe try www.yahoo.com as a place to log in instead of the Groups page and see if it offers different options for recovering a password.  There has to be some kind of customer support options available (a "Contact Us" kind of a link hidden somewhere ,,,  best of luck!

Hi Mark, no I don't but I would start with a hacksaw blade held in the hand and gently cut around it.

Danny,
 
Thanks! This is very reassuring. Perhaps I’m over thinking this a little bit.
 
One more question: do you remember what tool you used to separate the copper tube from the fiberglass when you cut back the fiberglass.
 
 
 
With best regards,

Hi Mark. It was on the tube from the toilet to the tank. Someone else had posted about replacing it and I used their advice. It was about 5 years ago so I don't recall the details except that I had to cut back a small amount of fiberglass around the copper tube and then it came out easily. Mine wasn't attached to the tube in the tank. The fitting replacement was one of the easiest jobs I've done. Luckily I had a plastic spear the right size in my spares.
 Putting the new hose on not so easy. The tube is quite stiff and it is a short run. Made it possible by hot water heating its full length prior and getting some flexibility. Plug one end and fill it with hot water.
Regards
Danny

Thanks Danny! Was your leak on the input side of the tank? Did you run into any issue with the fitting inside the tank?
 
Also, removing the old copper fitting – how was this done? Twisting and pulling or with a tool?
 
 
With best regards,

Hi Mark,
I had same problem a few years ago. I was able to remove the copper pipe from the bottom of the tank.  I found a plastic spear the right size fitting with a threaded end that was a tight fit. I put that in with silicone of the type used to bed deck fittings. Had no problems since. If I remember correctly I had to peal a little fiberglass away to get the copper out.

Looking inside the tank, there is a U shaped hose attached to the inlet to push the waste upward. Does anyone know if this is the same copper tube (meaning the tube would be one piece and sleeved through the tank). If this is the case, it might be very difficult to remove.
 
 
 
I’m still at a bit of a lose as to how to begin this repair. Any insight is greatly appreciated.
 
 
 
With best regards,
 
Mark

Oh, the joys of boat ownership…
 
I have a leak in the aft holding tank. The copper tube on the inlet side of the tank has a crack. Phew! I see where others have had a similar issue but don’t see the solution posted.
 
I have a couple of questions before I dive into this:
 
1)      How is the copper tube fastened to the tank? I do not see threads.
2)      What is the best way to remove the copper tube?
3)      What size tube do I need to replace this?
4)      What is the best way to insert and waterproof the replacement tube?
5)      I think something non-metallic might be a better material choice. Any suggestions?
 
 
 
With best regards,

Rudder Anode

I bought the standard R5 "trim tab" anode and the bolt is pretty small compared to the present bolt - about 1/2" according to the diver.  


Can someone give me a source for a suitable anode?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Engine RPM vs Boat speed for Amel-Super-Maramu 2000

amelforme
 

Vladimir, with your 75 H.P. engine, if you have a Max-Prop, that speed and RPM are about right, well within the range. If you have an Auto-Prop, the RPM are about 600 slower and that speed is a bit slower than normal by about ½ a knot. All things considered, nothing for concern and within normal ‘range’.



However, keep this in mind. In 35 years of selling used Amel’s by the hundreds, I have NEVER seen a tachometer on an Amel , or any other boat for that matter, after being tested with a certified pulse/stroboscopic tachometer, where the tachometer on the boat was less than 100 RPM too fast or too slow, and many times more than 100 RPM, sometimes a lot more. Tachometers are notoriously inaccurate, especially modern ones which take their information from an electrical pulse from the alternator or other source rather than an engine to tachometer rotating cable. If you are using accurate tide charts and GPS and something does not add up, have your tachometer tested, it’s inexpensive and easy to do so. It is often the culprit.



Have fun with your Amel, Joel

Joel,

Max RPM is 2900 at 8.2 kn speed.
Is this OK?

I bought my boat several months
ago. Boat was made in 2002, she has 75 HP Yanmar engine.

I decide to establish my boat performance characteristic. I
tested boat speed at three different engine RPM. My test
results are as follows:
Engine RPM Boat speed in
KN

1500.
4.7

2000.
6.3

2500.
7.5
Boat speed test minimised current or wind
effects. The speed was taking from GPS at maximum stable
speed.

I wonder if those results are as good as expected or not. Do
we have any similar data from Amel?
