Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Hauling SM with Lifting Plates

Ian Park
 

Had my Santorin lifted by deck plates. They just moved the hooks up a couple of links on one side to tilt the boat slightly to avoid the triatic. Worked a treat. Yes crane hook needs to be well clear of triatic too.

Hi all,


I am planning to get hauled out with a mobile crane using the Amel lifting plates.  The Amel instruction book recommends a minimum of 6m straps and an extra shackle for the straps on the side away from the crane to avoid the triadic stay.  I plan to use 20m steel straps so the crane hook is way over the triadic stay and the boat can be  lifted  evenly.  Has anybody had experience using this method?


Thanks.

Re: boat preparation for summer in trinidad

Ian Park
 

We had various opinions last year in Peakes. In the end we took all the sails off. Two had the leaches replaced and we had a new Genoa made at Ullman's Sails. Very pleased!

Get some cheap grease and grease all the stands and chains to stop ants getting up to the boat. The guys at Peakes will tell you this anyway. We put everything else away. Sealed all entry holes to the mizzen boom and hull openings by stuffing them with plastic bags. We had a container with de humidifier granules in the galley. Once a month we paid a boat boy to open the boat for a day, change the granules and wash the boat down. We just lifted the bunk cushions up and wedged the lee boards under for air circulation. We had no problems at all with condensation or mould. The Santorin is a very dry and well insulated hull.
One issue. In the engine room there were small piles of rust below the engine room vent hoses (they are still the originals with wire reinforcement. Where there was a little rust - the engine mounts etc there was evidence of a little more, and the shaft alternator had seized up a little. So this year I am going to spray anything showing any sign of rust with corrosionX and spray the alternators with WD 40. Unless anyone out there can suggest a better alternative..
We definitely avoided installing air conditioning units or electric dehumidifier so.

The monthly boat boy was worth it. Peace of mind with monthly emails. The yard has a list of approved staff.

Good luck

Re: Water Maker for Santorin

We have an Echotec2 watermaker. They are based in Trinidad very near Peakes. Worth talking to them. Ours is 80l an hour and is an engine driven pump. The pump will take a second membrane and push out 150l an hour. I'm still considering doing this. The engine has to run at 1450 rpm which is fine for motor sailing, but changing the pulley sizes could mean you could run at higher revs.
There are obvious power advantages with non mains electric pumps. But I haven't fitted a diesel generator.
We're hauling out in Clarke's Court. Let me know when you leave Trinidad next season. It would be good to meet up. Ian

Re: What size of anchor Rockna for Maramu.

JP Mans
 

Hi David

I send a few photos of my new anchor Rocna 33
As you will see it does not fall that well in the bow.
I'll have to move the roller ± 5 cm forward and put a piece of wood (or ionx) under the bow to avoid movement of the anchor when sailing (Last picture with a polystyrene piece as template).
I'll fix the whole thing when the boat will be in the water.

I just want to post this issue was resolved.  It turned out the O ring was twisted and did not seal.  Initially I did not look closely enough to catch it.  I kept re- tightening to no avail.  All is now well.  Thanks to all for good advice.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Hauling SM with Lifting Plates

Andrew & Kate Lamb
 

Hi Gerhard

 

As I mentioned this was for a pre-purchase survey so I left the previous owner to arrange the lift out with the normal team that he had used in the past. It was a quick lift out, inspection by the surveyor then lift back in again. The Triatic stay was not removed, neither were the backstay and topping lift. I do not believe that extra shackles were used – I have added a couple of extra photos to the same album that shows the shackles on the starboard side also.

 

Hope this helps

Hi Andrew,

 

Thanks for the picture.  You used much shorter strops than I plan to use.  Did you have to remove the triadic stay?  In the picture it appears that you left the main backstay and topping lift in place.  Is that so?  Did you put extra shackles on one side?

 

Many thanks.

FW: Super Maramu dimensions

amelforme
 

Hello Amel owners. Here are some dimensions we can use regarding the Super Maramu.

 

 

 

Shipping dimensions on a Amel 53 Super Maramu of any year of manufacture are as follows. Boat level and standing on the bottom of the keel.

 

14’11”/Top of the dodger

14’5”/Top of the bow pulpit

12’10”/Top of hard dodger base with dodger removed

12’5”/Top of bow roller with life rails removed

3’1”/Widest part of the keel

57’6”/ Main mast length without antennae

43’4”/Mizzen mast length

15’1”/Vessel beam max-measured

 

In my 35 years plus of selling Amel boats, I have been responsible for shipping quite a few SM 53 by truck in North America and by ship worldwide. In most cases I oversaw or actually took the boat out of commission with disassembly at the starting point and recommissioning at the arrival destination. My first advice is DON’T! It is a big job. You must have full faith in the firm moving the boat and they must be absolutely certain of the quality of maintenance and the dimensional characteristics of their equipment. I once had a truck driver chase me around a shipyard with a pistol because I refused to put my clients boat on his poorly kept trailer. Really. Turned out he was diabetic and his blood sugar was giving him fits. He took some insulin and then spent three days correcting the faults I brought to his attention regarding his rig. He did a first class job delivering the boat across the United States from Fort Lauderdale to Seattle. He later did other work for me until he retired.

Life as a yacht broker is seldom boring.

 

All measurements provided by Chantier Amel in January of  1993. I have relied on these figures faithfully but I cannot absolutely guarantee their perfect accuracy. But having worked closely with Amel for more than three decades, I would bet that they are right on the money.

 

I have a document from Amel, faxed on September of 1995, that was drawn by Jacques Carteau, the technical manager of Amel at that time and Captain Amel’s right hand man. It represents the main mast height with full fuel and water and 2240LBS. of gear aboard as follows:

 

63’4”/height above water to the top of the mast

64’1”/height to the top of the masthead light

64’4”/height to the top of the Brooks and Gatehouse wind instrument assembly

67’6”/height to the top of the Amel provided VHF antennae

 

Same caution about accuracy applies but I have used these figures without incident but cannot be held responsible if they are not spot on. I live in the USA. We have more lawyers than engineers over here and they all gotta eat.

 

I hope this is helpful.

 

All The Best, Joel

Good morning Stefano,

In order to prevent that add my email addresses to your contacts.
Here is my answer to your email:

Yes this is a picture of my boat.
I did not know there was different shaft.
I just look back at http://nikimat.com/auto_prop_h6.html
on picture 19 (you can do a right click, save as to see the picture number), you can see the Spur’s rope cutter is fixed on a portion of the shaft that is flat (or horizontal).
On photo 56 you can see the reinstallation of the Spur’s.

Here is the Spur’s you need: http://nikimat.com/spare_parts_spurs_marine.html
But prior you need to make sure the Amel part number: 3184 which is: VE DE COUPE ORIN 20 mm ACIER 18/12 MO / V bolt for rope cutter (steel)
http://nikimat.com/spare_parts_c_drive.html
As it will hold the bottom part of the rope cutter.

I suspect the plug that hold the transmission oil doesn’t look like this on yours.
I would make sure it is at the same location than on mine and that there is sufficient place on the shaft as well…

Hope that helps… Alexandre

OK… 

In this case, add 2.05 meters to the 65 foot 2 mast height.  

You’ll like the SM and if the wallet can stand a big refit, the comfort is better.  We bought a “lightly” used (9300 nm under the keel) 26 yo SM with many of the high cost work done.  (Engine, genset, standing rigging an masts/booms.)  Then we redid the interior to 2015 standards including the electronics.  Our old 007 is absolutely magnificent with more modern AC (we chose Webasto), new soft goods/mattresses, cockpit enclosure and water maker.

We’re ready and leaving wintering grounds prob on Sat 28th Apr… come on world!!!

Hi James,


Mast head height of an SM is 65 feet 2 inches.  Add the length of the antennas…

Herbert,
   I am looking to buy an Amel but have not yet decided on which model yet.  The Super Maramu is very tempting but the size, transportability and mast height all make the 46' models more practical.  I own an inland yard in Florida where I would like to do the refit and there is one fixed bridge to the marina and then overhead wire considerations for the hydraulic trailer ride to my shop.  On this note if anyone might know the total vertical dimension of the SM it would be helpful.  I have looked at the Maramu and like it a lot. The workmanship, the thought put into the design and construction really impressed me.  I like the lines of the Santorin and the transom design would certainly be a nice feature.  I was originally thinking of going with the basic Maramu without a thruster, c drive and the in mast furling.  The input I am getting from experienced owners is that the retractable thrusters are well worth the complexity and maitenance required so I am rethinking all of this.  As a Sanotrin owner could you give me some input on how your boat differs from the Maramu?  Does the Santorini have the more modern underwater lines that the AM does?

Thanks,
James

thanks JP, we also changed now the engine and transmission mounts, engine vibrations are gone, but the vibration of the propellor is still there if we are "sailing fast", but now it starts when sailing more than ~ 7,3 knots, below that no vibrations. when these vibrations start we put in the reverse gear to avoid the propellor spinning. we will not takle any more action on that.

Gary,

It was a while ago.

However I believe they were just regular O tings. I would go to a hydraulic shop that does cylinders for bulldozers etc.  they have the big rings.

If you are in Sint Maarten, FKG has a great hydraulic shop. The also made me a hose for my stove covered in braided steel and then rubber.

They also made watermaker hoses for me with hydraulically swaged fittings and 2 hoses for the actuator on the brake.

Hi Eric:  Thanks for the confirmation of what I am seeing in the diagram concerning all the seals and hydraulic fluid being in the end nearest the brake pads.  From your experience were there just o-rings on that business end or were there lip or other types of more complex seals that I will need?

 

Is the diagram posted on this site somewhere? 

 

All the best,
