Re: B&G paddle wheel sensor discontinued part

Try going to the B&G website. I recently swapped out our instrument sensors. I was concerned about several compatibility issues. Their tech support is very helpful, I think it's by email, just be very specific about your problem and they will answer. BTW, the new paddlewheel fit perfectly, no adjustments necessary.

Bob,

2 years ago a got a brand new paddlewheel sensor from B&G, I used it for 3 months and changed then the complete system to Raymarine. I would sell the "as new" B&G sensor, if you are interested contact me at

Bill, thank you for your reply, I'm looking for an identical replacement otherwise it's a slip and replace with a different unit. There seem a plethora of alternatives which all require replacement on the hard.

Another quality brand you could look at is Hellamarine that are made in New Zealand. I have a boat with them (not my Amel which is still like yours with converted LED globes).

 

They do round surface mount LED lights that are both red and white, dimmable, can be remotely switched or on the light or both and can be adjusted so they dim together, and have a memory so they come back on at the dimming level they were at previously. They do look more modern though than the traditional stainless dome light being made out of white or black uv resitsant acrylic. They also have a 5 year warranty.

Thanks Valdimir!  I am going to try one of those for the light in the cockpit over the companionway.  But at 145 lumens, I don’t think it’s going to cut it as a main saloon light.

The Alpenglow lamps put out 600 lumens.  That’s what I am used to in a boat cabin.  It’s not an arc light, it only the equivalent of a roughly a 50 watt incandescent bulb.  80 Lumens is roughly equal to a 10 watt light bulb, and that just isn’t sufficient for me to engage in real 24 hour activity.  Again, others might feel differently.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Recruiting Your Latest Thoughts on Interior Lights

Bill,

   I have tested a number of 2 conductor bayonet LED bulbs designed to fit the older style lights and found a lot of them that I didn’t like.  I was very impressed however with the Marinebeam 300 lumen 3000K units that have a nice colour and are quite bright.  I am completely converting my current boat with them.

  This does not solve your need for a red light but I note that Marine Beam also sells some of those but I have no experience with them.  I have not had good luck with the G4 type sockets on customer boats so have avoided them myself.  The Marine Beam stuff is not the cheapest but they seem to do a good job of really sealing up the electronics, especially on their running lights.

Best of luck,

James

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Recruiting Your Latest Thoughts on Interior Lights

Hi Bill,

You should pull the trigger and buy the Alpenglow lights. We purchased 6 of the LED white/red fixtures for our boat a couple of years ago. Aft cabin, passage way to aft cabin, over nav station table, Galley, over salon table, and forward cabin. The lights look great, put out tons of light, and from my past experience on other boat, last forever. We replaced all of the remaining dome lights with stainless domes from marinebeam in SC. You can buy white only, or white and red for about another 10 bucks. The standard stainless domes are very bright, good quality, and around $50. When we turn everything on, you can probably see us from outer space, and the amp meter hardly changes. 

All joking aside, this combination of lights really changed the interior of the boat, and we think it was money well spent.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Mast ( Main & Mizzen ) Fore / Aft Tuning

Olivier Beaute
 

Good evening Gary,

now I told you about the rigging tuning process, you should do as if your mast was installed for the first time, and do this process.
This means that before, you need to:
-remove the stainless steel plate below the genoa furler, and raise the furler in order to get access to the forestay turnbuckle
-ease the mizzen backstays and remove the triatic from the top of main mast (in order it does not interfere with the main mast head). You may even need to move the mizzen mast forward by easing the aft lower shrouds and top shrouds and tightening the front lower shrouds.
-ease the intermediate U-bolts at first spreaders
-ease the main mast rigging, starting with the intermediate shrouds, then top shrouds, backstay and forestay, then the lower shrouds

When all the shrouds are loose, then you can start the process I described.
Make sure to put new grease on the turnbuckles/swage threads.

Olivier

Gary, I would not expect the mast step to be level, as there is little chance that any boat , sitting in the water is level, due to the allocation of items stored on the boat. I think what you would want to determine is , that the mast is at a right angle, or 90 degrees relative to the mast step. If you ran a thin line from the center of the mast head (fore to aft) to the center of the mast, at the step, pulling the line very tight .Then take a carpenters framing square with the short side resting on the mast step you could determine if the line is parallel to the square along its vertical leg. The line would also show you if the mast is in column ( straight) . If you could extend the long ( vertical ) leg of the square with a straight edge , such as a six ft. level it would give an even more accurate ,easier to read determination that you have a right angle. If the line is running , lets say 1/16 inch from the end of the square two feet up from mast step you could do the math and determine how far the mast is aft or forward of step.

Gary,

If the mast step is level fore-and-aft (big if, need to measure with a level) then wouldn't a plumb line from the top of the mast should show verticality/alignment of the mast with the mast step and even highlight any S-bend?

Re: Rocna 40

Thanks for your responses.  Regarding the Rocna 40 kg--I want to report back that for our 2000/Millennium model the Rocna 40 fits perfectly.  There is NO metal to metal contact when the throat is pulled up to the roller.  It is as if the Rocna 40 was made for it. Depending on whether your roller has a center groove, the fluke can roll and perhaps clang but this is easy to block or tie. Bob and Suzanne KAIMI SM 429 (Redline)
