Kent,

I believe that we have covered this before when you quoted the same thing before.

Possibly you want to download the user's guide that I am quoting from: https://www.dropbox.com/s/05jqbfrghqye3al/Amel%20Super%20Maramu%20User%27s_Guide_CP.pdf?dl=0

I can't tell you why later issued Amel user manuals are different than the one you quote, but they are.

Best,

Bill

Kent and Bill,

The Super Maramu 2000 user manual that came with #387 does not have that warning and its sections and pages are numbered differently. The twin pole system is discussed from page 40 to page 50 in 1.3.4 "Amel rig and sail furling systems" part d) "AMEL twin pole system"

I have sailed thousands of miles with the genoa poled to either port or starboard, and I have has limited success with wing on wing because the main will not function well at 150-160 without touching shrouds. I have had great success with the fore ballooner and the genoa with the wind at 160-180. When thenwind is at 150-160, I sail with the genoa poled out.

I hope this helps.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] mast pole for genoa

James Alton
 

Bill,

   The geometry of the rigging suggests to me that having the two short  compression “struts” in place that run from the mast to the shrouds could help stiffen the mast laterally and help resist the asymmetric loads from a single pole.  Do you recommend having these in place when using a  pole?

Best,

James

Bill,
I think I have the Users Guide on a storage drive.  When I find it and have good wifi I will send it to you.

Charles,
The poles aren't that difficult to deploy and retrieve single-handed with practice and proper technique.  Raising and especially retrieving the ballooner is more difficult.  I'm not sure I would want to do that single-handed.

The thinking might be that in theory the loads of the two poles cancel each other out. In theory.   But watching the twin headsails in practice, especially when sailing in a significant seaway, the loads are cyclical and the sheets load up alternately. The heavier load shifts from one side to the other.  I am not at all convinced that in practice the load cancelling would be real except in flat water.

Re: Hurth Gearbox

On SM 384 equipped with the Yanmar 4JH3HTE, for preventative maintenance I recently removed and had rebuilt the 5 sea water cooled heat exchangers: engine heat exchanger, engine oil cooler, engine turbo inter-cooler, generator heat exchanger, and the Hurth reduction gear cooler. Along the sea water supply hose that goes to the Hurth cooler there is a yellow and green bonding wire. I forget where it is supposed to go.It's length appeears to end at about the end of the little heat exchanger and the wire is stripped for a short section about 5" before it ends. Does anyone happen to recall where and/or how the bonding wire is attached?  (Photo posted in Photos section. https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/amelyachtowners/photos/photostream/lightbox/838712979?orderBy=mtime&sortOrder=desc&photoFilter=ALL#zax/838712979 Thanks,

Re: bow thruster service. Problem

Jim Anderson
 

Thanks all for your suggestions. Since the problem occurs with the thruster disconnected from the rigging, I don't think the problem is the rigging. I haven't taken on a drop of water through the bow thruster seals on my current cruise so far, which has included motoring into some good sized seas. So I think I the next time I have the boat out of the water I will start with callipers, followed by precise machine-shop measurements and milling, if needed. Perhaps a previous owner of servicer simply over-tightened a band/hose clamp, causing an out-of-round condition. I'll report my findings after the next haul-out.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] mast pole for genoa

c.macdonald@...
 

Kent, yes. Thinking over what Bill said, it occurred to me that in Amel's theory the use of both poles together would nullify each other's push. Makes sense. It has been stated repeatedly on this forum that one is better of when not meddling with or contradicting any of old Amel's instructions. When in Rome... So I will explore two possibilities: using the main boom as a pole for the genoa (very optional and in moderate wind force) and/or installing a running backstay so as to add strenght on the wind side of the mast. Or just using both poles as they are, and getting used to rig them correctly and easily.

The hinge consists of a long pintle that is incorporated into the fiberglass along the forward edge of the platform and the gudgeons are two stainless steel eyes that are attached to stainless steel brackets that conform to the outer edge of the hull in the stern.  These brackets are placed just above the rubber bumper on the stern. The ends of the pintles are capped with stainless steel eyes to prevent the pintles from slipping out of the gudgeons on the brackets.  (See the new pictures I posted in the Photos section).
