Re: 24V/230V Inverter

svperegrinus@yahoo.com
 

We wanted an "as factory" installation so we went with the Xantrex PROsine 1800 on #350, on the advice of Bill who has the same model as a factory installation on #387.

Our installation consists of the 806-1884 model (hardwire with transfer relay) plus the remote interface panel 808-1800.  The inverter is installed horizontally in the engine room.  You then remove its LCD panel/switch and install it inside the main cabin (it connects back to the inverter via a flat telephone wire); and put the remote interface panel on the inverter itself.  This way you have two device switches: one on the inverter (with no display) and one inside the cabin (with display).  The inverter is quiet but it does produce a modest buzz, unaudible outside the engine room.   Our installation is 2.5 years old.

We considered the Mastervolt combi charger/inverter, but the one suitable for us would have been the 2500W version.  Our electrician did not recommend this alternative because of the thickness of the existing battery wires in the engine room.  While it is true that when charging at 100A the wires transmit 2500W, when inverting, the wires could transmit up to 5000W because inverters in this range will put out up to double their rate for up to 30 seconds.

Out of all the upgrades we've done on Peregrinus, this is definitively one we couldn't live without –there are so many 230V appliances on board, that the inverter gets turned on several times a day.

We fitted a Cotek 3 KW. Bullet proof gear and in combo with solar, avoids genset useage. Other option is Victron... I would avoid Mastervolt.

Hi Duane,
I believe we have what was the standard fitment in 2004 under the nav tablke rhs cupboard.
Mastervolt 24/500....ie 500W...doesn't run much except laptop, phone chargers etc
I installed a 1500W inverter I bought on the internet and installed it in the locker above the galley and use it to power small kitchen appliances and my espresso machine (that was the real reason for it!).
It is actually electrically much less noisy than the Mastervolt unit.
I know others have even larger units in the engine room
Cheers

Joe,
   Many thanks for the suggestion, I will get that ordered right away.  The manual may not arrive in time for visiting the boat so if anyone else might know the socket size for the bolt on the front of the crank on the Perkins Prima 60 please let me know.  Thanks, James

Perkins Prima 60 Dimensions

James Alton
 

Hello all,  

   Does anyone know the size of a socket required to fit the large bolt/nut on the front of the crankshaft of the Perkins Prima 60?  Also, are the glow plugs metric or Imperial?  I would like to remove the glow plugs, get some oil into the cylinders and roll the engine over by hand before trying to start due to the extended layup.  (If the glow plugs are too tight,  I will remove the injectors)  I cannot seem to find these dimensions searching online.


Thanks,


James

Hi Alan,

New Zealand - we found it very hard to leave. Noa is currently in Lisbon, so a bit far for a little cuddle up of #436 and #437 at the moment. I´ll post some photos later.

Cheers,

Walter (Noa, SM436)

Hi Walter,
Where are you?
We are in New Zealand waiting for weather to take us to Fiji.
Do you have any photos of this bowthruster drain pipe arrangement that you have and I don't?
Cheers

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Bow thruster

Hi Allan,
#436 and #437 must have met when being built in 2004. Although the first owner of Noa let Amel built a few bits and pieces to his liking,
I´m pretty sure the setup of draining the bow thruster compartment
was not his idea. It would be nice to meet and compare the boats.
Cheers,
Walter (Noa, SM436)

Hi Joel,

Yes we have the wooden panel with the perspex hinged top to access the pin, not the curtain.
I can confirm there is only one pipe and valve and that is for the anchor locker.
Also, just before we did the bowthruster seals last year, we had a small amount of salt water in the well outside the forward head, now with new seals and proper adjustment we are dry.
Cheers

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Morning Dove

Joel,

I flew jets (A-4 and A-7, which reveals my vintage) off aircraft carriers for most of my career in the Navy, and was Air Operations Officer on the USS Kitty Hawk toward the end.  When we were trying to decide on a new name for the boat, Merry suggested Air Ops, which was the short version for that Navy position.  After all, she said, sailing is an Air Operation.  Who was I to say no?

There’s another connection between you and Air Ops.  Her second owner was Jeffrey Rapp, who moved up to the SM Antares.

After I sold INDEPENDENCE, the Chamberlains bought a brand new Amel MANGO 52/53 ( dependent on which brochure you read!) which got destroyed in a hurricane in Guadaloupe FWI. They actually figured out that they preferred the Maramu for the two of them, which was their normal compliment, so I sold them the one from Wisconsin which I shipped down and recommissioned in Fort Lauderdale. It was in my backyard on my dock when they fell in love with it.

 

Good luck with Air Ops!

Hi Joel,

 

Yes, the loss of Morning Dove is very sad, but of course we’re glad that the entire crew was safely rescued.  We met Bruce and saw Morning Dove last spring in Puerto Escondido, Baja California Sur.  She was a beautiful boat.

 

Also, you have found the current owners of the Maramu formerly named Independence, Maramu #104. My wife and I are the fifth owners, having bought the boat in 2000. She had gone through two name changes since the Chamberlains owned her (Jezebel, then Doing It) , and we changed it again to her great delight. She is now named Air Ops, and is in great shape.  Since 2007 we have kept her in Mexican waters, home-porting her in Puerto Escondido and sailing her about ½ each year in the Sea of Cortez and down the Mexican Pacific coast.

Howard and Mary sold the MORNING DOVE to the current owner, I believe, who had the misfortune of losing her recently. Glad nobody was hurt. Sad end to a great boat.
