Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Darn Batteries - Thank you

Hi Eric

I went to check this on my boat and found I couldn't understand which AC setting you
mean to test. Can you please clarify?

There is another item you may want to check and that is AC ripple from your charger.
There was an article in a recent Cruising World on how AC ripple can cause your batteries
to discharge even when the charger is going full bore. The article said to test for this with
a multimeter on the AC setting, putting the black probe on the negative, the red on the
positive, and if it shows more that .2 VAC it will cause to batteries to discharge while
cooking them at the same time. Cruising World March 2007 page 98.

Thank you to all who have answered. I called and spoke to the Link
10 / Mastervolt people, they confirm that the the Mastervolt is not a
regulator.

Gary, I now have four of the eight batteries that must be replaced. I
sopke with Simon at Rolls Battery, and he advised me that my batteries
are "sulfated" because I am not charging them to a high enough voltage
(28.8v). He further stated that it is sensless to replace the
batteries until the Dolphin Charger can put out the 28.8V as the new
batteries will just sulfate again. He felt stong enough about this
that he said he would not advise spending the money on Rolls batteries
as they absolutly need the 28.8V. I have done most of the checking and
testing you recommended, and I still have the same result, only 27.3
volts from the charger.

Gary, do you use Skype??? Can I Skype you?

Thanks again, Tony

Cold Weather Cockpit Enclosure for SM2

Judy Rouse
 

We have the cold weather cockpit enclosure from Amel. Unfortunately
we are missing the stainless steel bars or tubes that support the rear
of the enclosure. These bars or tubes run from the port and starboard
mizzen shrouds to behind the mizzen mast. We believe that we could
have them fabricated if we had specifications and/or photos.

We would appreciate either a posting of photos and/or specs on this
website, or emailing the information to brouse"at"gmail.com,
substituting the @ symbol for "at"

Best,

Eastern Med and Suez transit

John and Anne on Bali Hai <annejohn@...>
 

Hi Ed,
No idea where you are but we are in Malta. We have an excellent log
produced by Kamu 2, a 12.9mtr yacht giving important info on charges,
reception etc. in Northern Cyprus,Syria,Lebanon, Israel and Egypt,
transiting the canal etc.Not sure whether to send it to you at your
Email address or put it in the Files section. Suffice to say that we
are encouraged to go that way for our summer cruise. If you want it
sent to you please let us know your address as I am not sure whether
the bit shown on your place in the members section would work.
Alternatively if others also want the info I will try to post it in the
files section. It is two years worth (2005/6) and each one is covers
seven or eight pages.
My full address is in the members section.
Let me know, Best wishes John SM319

appreciate it.

Also, Has anyone not used the slings and used the liftinf eyes on the
chainplates?

Please send the PDF file to: agav8ter@yahoo.com

Re: Pressure sensitive velcro

airbus4russ <russ.roberts.va@...>
 

John,

Have you considered, or has anyone else tried, the 3M brand of "Command
Adhesive" picture hangers? They are guaranteed to not leave marks when
removed and require no drilling. I've enclosed a link to picture of
the box from an Amazon ad: [http://www.amazon.com/3M-Sawtooth-Picture-
Hanger/dp/B0001DTL2O]

I'm interested to see what others have to say about the Velcro.

Regards,

Russ
