Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Bottom paint

Buy a electric paint remover.  Takes 25% of the time and does better safer job then sanding.

No. Hard paint will not adhere to soft paint.  When I did my bottom job last year, the manufacturer instructions specifically said to remove all the old paint.  I spent about 3-4 weeks blasting and sanding.  I then barrier coated the bottom again; then painted the hard bottom paint. I used Coppercoat.

Same here: B 1-1/2"

Personally I purchased several a spare one as well as many of their service kit (Zinc, bearing, plugs) might cost you more up front but long term you will save on shipping to where ever you are in the world.

Which makes me think: if you do not currently have one, do you have the transmission oil plug as a V shape?
If not, you will need one. Here are some pictures that will help you understand the set up (especially toward the bottom) you can see the whole re-installation of the Spurs Rope cutter:

Good day I would like to install a rope cutter on my
Supermaramu #222

Unfortunately I'm not sure about the diameter of the
shaft.

Can someone give me the diameter?



Thank you Elja

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] "Spare" sails

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Eric,

Here is a picture:
http://nikimat.com/sewing_machine.html

I have a little book case (not sure it is standard on the SM2K, probably added by the previous owner) and it fit right below it.

Due to its weight it will not more unless you reach 30 degree roll.
I should secure it, but have not done...

Leaving tomorrow (Thursday) from Turks & Caicos to sail directly to Samana in Dominican Republic.

"Spare" sails    Good morning Eric,

I have the Ultafeed LSZ-1 (for
straight and zigzag switch) in 230 VOLT with the Pemium
Package
http://www.sailrite.com/Sailrite-Ultrafeed-LSZ-1-PREMIUM-220V-European-Walking-Foot-Sewing-Machine

I store it on against the left
(forward) wall os the nav station.
It is
quite heavy… and won’t move unless I heel at unnecessary
angle (like 30 degree).
I probably should
tie/secure it, but have not.

Sincerely, Alexandre

You

A questions to you who have made

your advice to
have spare sails
aboard?We
have just
bought
new sails and are now
wondering, shall we
keep the
old sails for
spare
if we by any reason would rip/destroy
our
new sails? We have one Genua in rather OK
condition that
we will probably
keep, but
the main sails need some
stitching but then
it will have
a few years of service left.
Mizzen we will

Good day I would like to install a rope cutter on my Supermaramu #222
Unfortunately I'm not sure about the diameter of the shaft.
Can someone give me the diameter?

Thank you Elja

Good morning Eric,

I have the Ultafeed LSZ-1 (for straight and zigzag switch) in 230 VOLT with the Pemium Package
http://www.sailrite.com/Sailrite-Ultrafeed-LSZ-1-PREMIUM-220V-European-Walking-Foot-Sewing-Machine

I store it on against the left (forward) wall os the nav station.
It is quite heavy… and won’t move unless I heel at unnecessary angle (like 30 degree).
I probably should tie/secure it, but have not.

Sincerely, Alexandre

"Spare" sails    I did not keep my old sail as
they take lots of space/weight, but I do have a sewing
machine onboard.
http://www.sailrite.com/Ultrafeed-Portable-Industrial-Sewing-Machines
I have the 220 Volt model with the premium
package (in case I don’t have electricity).
It also allow me to make awning, covers, etc.


You will also need
material to be able to repair your sails.

This is only “my” opinion,
you should wait from other more experience Amel owner.

A questions to you who have made
longer trips type around the world. What are
your advice to
have spare sails aboard?We
have just
bought new sails and are now
wondering, shall we keep the
old sails for
spare if we by any reason would rip/destroy
our new sails? We have one Genua in rather OK
condition that
we will probably keep, but
the main sails need some
stitching but then
it will have a few years of service left.
Mizzen we will not keep as not

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Shaft Generator for SM2k

Hi Elja,
we know this system, but I don't like this additional mounting on the stern. Using the always existing prop would be much more convenient for me.

Hoping I will get some answers, because it should be not necessary to invent the existing system again.

Greetings

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] "Spare" sails

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Eric,

I have the Ultafeed LSZ-1 (for straight and zigzag switch) in 230 VOLT with the Pemium Package
http://www.sailrite.com/Sailrite-Ultrafeed-LSZ-1-PREMIUM-220V-European-Walking-Foot-Sewing-Machine

I store it on against the left (forward) wall os the nav station.
It is quite heavy… and won’t move unless I heel at unnecessary angle (like 30 degree).
I probably should tie/secure it, but have not.

Sincerely, Alexandre

"Spare" sails    I did not keep my old sail as
they take lots of space/weight, but I do have a sewing
machine onboard.
http://www.sailrite.com/Ultrafeed-Portable-Industrial-Sewing-Machines
I have the 220 Volt model with the premium
package (in case I don’t have electricity).
It also allow me to make awning, covers, etc.


You will also need
material to be able to repair your sails.

This is only “my” opinion,
you should wait from other more experience Amel owner.

A questions to you who have made
longer trips type around the world. What are
your advice to
have spare sails aboard?We
have just
bought new sails and are now
wondering, shall we keep the
old sails for
spare if we by any reason would rip/destroy
our new sails? We have one Genua in rather OK
condition that
we will probably keep, but
the main sails need some
stitching but then
it will have a few years of service left.
Mizzen we will not keep as not
critical

Re: "Spare" sails

Agree with the advice to dump your old sails.  Regarding "spare" sails for a circumnavigation, however, I would strongly advise you to consider a--I will call it--hi cut 100% or 110% slightly heavier genoa.  It is really a versatile sail.  I carry a 110 and a 145%.  With the 110 (HydroNet material) you lose about 1 kt of speed in low winds you probably would want to motorsail in anyway. In higher wind conditions above 25 kts, 30kts, even 45kts off the wind, you almost never need to reef and because you don't need to furl, it maintains a better shape with less heeling than a furled 140-160% genoa.  If you do need to furl it in insane winds it maintains a better shape than an larger furled genoa.  We have had really good luck in the Med (with a reputation of too little and too much wind) but also off-shore in the North Sea and North Atlantic both during winter and think Kimberlite has posted that they always use a similar sail off-shore.

I did not keep my old sail as they take lots of space/weight, but I do have a sewing machine onboard.
http://www.sailrite.com/Ultrafeed-Portable-Industrial-Sewing-Machines
I have the 220 Volt model with the premium package (in case I don’t have electricity).
It also allow me to make awning, covers, etc.

You will also need material to be able to repair your sails.

This is only “my” opinion, you should wait from other more experience Amel owner.

A questions to you who have made
longer trips type around the world. What are your advice to
have spare sails aboard?We have just
bought new sails and are now wondering, shall we keep the
old sails for spare if we by any reason would rip/destroy
our new sails? We have one Genua in rather OK condition that
we will probably keep, but the main sails need some
stitching but then it will have a few years of service left.
Mizzen we will not keep as not

Shaft Generator for SM2k

n4796p
 

Hello all SM2k-owners,
we just changed our engine from 4HJ3-TE to 4JH4-HTE with ZF30M. This will allow to use the internal prop to be used as shaft generator.

As I know a lot of SM2k have this system, can anybody provide me with the main informations aout this system, i.e.:
diameter of the small pulley,
diameter of the big pulley,
type and/or spec of alternator,
wiring diagram,
photo.

Many thanks in advance
Armin
