Hello Stéphanie,

I forwarded your email to a mate, a senior member at YCF (Yacht Club de France)… you know the type?  Hooty snooty??  :-)

Lets see what he suggests.

Cheers,

Our 46' Santorin is flagged in France. We want to de-flag her so that she can be registered and sold in the US. I tried to search on how to de-flag a pleasure boat registered in France but was not successful. I have sent an inquiry to a maritine office in LaRochelle, but have not yet received an answer. Can anyone offer any advice!

Re: Loose bolt on rudder hinge SM2K

Derick Gates SM2K #400 Brava
 

Duane, the bolt appears to be initially threaded in the stainless steel of the hinge and then further penetrates a nylon or Teflon cylinder, keeping the cylinder in place. I cannot tell if the cylinder is threaded or not.

Derick,

What is the purpose of the bolt?  Does it screw into the skeg?  Is the skeg internally threaded for the bolt?

Thanks for posting this, I was very curious.

You fill out your model in your profile section. You can also add it to your signature which appears on every post.

It would be a manual effort, but not much of one, to assemble a simple spreadsheet of user names by model or model to user name and have that available.

I removed the loose bolt, and found it to be much shorter (10mm) than was warranted.  I have replaced it with an 8 X 30 mm stainless steel bolt, which screwed in tightly.

Loose bolt on rudder hinge SM2K

Derick Gates SM2K #400 Brava
 

Hi all,


I have Brava on the hard to renew her antifouling, and I noticed that the middle hinge on the rudder has a large bolt countersunk into the hinge.  On the port side this bolt is tight, but on the starboard side the bolt turns and turns without tightening, nor does it extract when you try to loosen it.  I have posted a picture of the loose bolt and the hinge in the photos section under "rudder hinge SM2K".


Does anyone know the function of these bolts (Olivier?) and their importance?  I do not want to take measures to extract the loose bolt and perhaps replace it without some foreknowledge.

Alexandre,
Great :)  but umm, I forgot a piece
of the puzzle there.  When you are on the board itself,
there is a "Notify" button at each category level.
You do have to turn that on which allows you to pick and
choose which categories, or even which individual topics,
you wish be notified of.  In our case it's probably
best to to go through and toggle them all on, but on some
boards people may only want to hear about their individaul
kind of pickup and individual sports team or
whatever.
Look for the
"Notify" button at the bottom of the topics list
next to "New Topic".

One addition to the members page would be to list the members model as it could help direct communication between owners with similar models.

Hi Alain,


The moderators fundamentally have the right to mess with other peoples' messages.  In a good way :)

It would be important to keep messages in their correct or appropriate categories so moderators can move them between subjects.  The same with pictures and files.
You would have the ability to hide or delete offensive material and send the user a warning.
You would be be to take two or more similar discussion topics and merge them into one for ease of search and likewise if a discussion takes a turn toward a different subject you can split out those posts and create a new topic.
Answering questions, maybe (although in this group I'd never ever expect to) handling a complaint, and deleting any spam.
You can also "lock" topics; meaning no else can add to it until it's unlocked. This will be useful if we have, for instance, a reference topic with a list if part numbers or sources or the like and we need it to not get lost in a discussion. It would only be updated with your consent to keep it clean and relevant.
You can "sticky" a topic, meaning it will always be presented at the top of the topics list, no matter how many additional messages might show up.  A 'stickied' message might contain all the links we need to point to important resources like bow thruster maintenance instructions, Polars, places to get maintenance performed that are familiar with Amels and other data we don;t want to get buried.  
You can also set up and handle any Polls (surveys) based on the group's requests. 

I'm probably leaving stuff out, but I also need to say that until the board gets up and running full time there will be very little to do except practice.  I'll try to help facilitate that. Once we get a hundred or so people using the board there will be stuff to do and if we have a thousand people it will take enough time that we should bring in two more moderators.  

All along, the need to grow topics, expand and refine categories and rearrange the structure is easily handled without losing any data.  

Let me know what you think.

Re: Changes to Yahoo

Hello Alexandre,

In order to receive automatic emails with updates from the board do this procedure:

After logging in click on "Profile"

Then find "Modify Profile" and from that drop-down menu select "Notifications"

You will see this information in the first pane:

+++++++
 Receive forum newsletters, announcements and important notifications by email.
 Turn notification on when you post or reply to a topic.
 When sending notification of a reply to a topic, send the post in the email (but please don't reply to these emails.)

For topics and boards I've requested notification on, notify me:   Instantly  Instantly - but only for the first unread reply  Daily  Weekly   
+++++

Check the 2nd and 3rd boxes to turn on email notifications and then select from the drop-down instant, daily or weekly emails.

Hope that helps!

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Changes to Yahoo

Hi Ian and Judy,

The Amelowners BBS is an all new system, completely independent from Yahoo groups. As such it requires a registration process which means basically signing up all over again.  
When you go to the amelowners.net page, click on "Register" and create your user name and password.  It will ask you for your email at that time.
The board itself sends you an email just to confirm you're a real human instead of an automatic hacking machine (called a 'bot") and you should be able to click on the link within the email and validate your registration.

Once the account is valid you can log on and off at will.  You can also complete the "Profile" sections and include as much information about you, your boat, your travels and your interests as you might wish to publicly share.

Hope that helps.  Let me know what else you might need.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] SSB Grounding

Paul Osterberg
 

Problem with my installation:
The ground cable behind the chart table is now disconnected. I checked that the ca 8 mm thick had contact with the copper strip in the aft lazaret, so that's fine, BUT it was also connected to the grund strap in the BILGE, Where do I find the connection between the copper strip in the aft lazaret and the ground strap in the bilge?
Then all ground connection behind the chart table was to the thick ground cable from the aft copper strap, they are not connected to the ground strap in the Bilge.
Any one that can give me some light on this?

Hey everyone -


Just wanted to share this link that I find interesting/helpful. It is an animated graphic of current wind conditions around the world. Smooth sailing!
