[Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Dual Racor 500 facts or myths?

Judy Rouse
 

According to the Racor information supplied with the adapters, the
rubber spacer is required for those units which have a "flat top
surface" on the cross bar at the base of the standpipe. This
description is not very clear to me yet as I have not looked inside
the filter unit.

I believe that the primary source of the confusion is that Racor
decided to change the filter unit and then change the filter elements
without changing the element part number. I have been told that
complete information is on their website, but buried deeply. I have
searched their website and have not been able to locate the
information. You may be able to get more information if you can call
their 800 number at 800-344-3286.

One thing that troubles me is that I met a Beneteau owner yesterday.
He ordered and received delivery of a new Beneteau including a factory
installed dual Racor in 2004. He says that his dual Racor is the
older model and he has to use the adapters. This worries me.
Fortunately, I have obtained some adapters from another cruiser and I
still have a supply of the older red/orange filters, so I will not
have an issue until that supply depletes.

from
visual inspection when the filter slides too low, or is it more

Re: Dual Racor 500 facts or myths?

We found some information on the adapter...here it is:
Racor 500 Series Built about 1996 or 1997 and before may need a Spacer
if using the new Racor element 2010 S T or P. This Filter can be
easy identified by the recess at the bottom of the filter.

If not used the filter may go far down into the housing past the hole
in the suction pipe and the filter will be bypassed. Racor Part # 15424

Racor will provide the spacer at no cost - not even a
shipping/handling fee - or you can cut your own from 5/16" i.d. flex
fuel hose, 1 inch in length. Call this number to get your free
spacers: (800-344-3286)

We were discussing this someone else who insisted that the new
redesigned 2 micron filter would not work properly in a Dual Racor 500
that was manufactured prior to 2006. He said that you had to get an
adapter from Racor which was placed on the standpipe prior to
inserting a new filter. He said the adapter looked like a small piece
of PVC pipe that fit over the standpipe. He said if you did not use
the adapter, fuel would bypass the new beige/brown filter and make the
dual Racor inoperable.

I found nothing at the Racor website at
http://www.parker.com/ead/cm1.asp?cmid=392

Is this Fact or Myth?

Does anyone have any knowledge of this?

Geonav Plotter

ianjenkins1946 <ianjudyjenkins@hotmail.com>
 

Our SM is no 302, launched in June 2000.I need another chart chip for the Geonav plotter but I am in London and the boat is in Uruguay.Some of the new Navionics cahrt chips use an updated software and I cannot remember which software I have. From memory the software number comes up when you first switch on the plotter.
Is there anyone out there on a SM numbered between 297and 307 who can tell me what software number they have? Thanks, Ian and Judy Jenkins, Pen Azen

Hi, I was owner of "Kavanga" (# 69, sloop)for 10 years. We had the
motorlight on top of the mast and the switch was on top of the front
door leading from the saloon to the bathroom, next to the switch of the
navigation lights. If it is switched on, you cannot see the light
standing on deck of your own yacht, because the cover of the mast ist
wider than the mast itself. So as you need it - one can see it only
from distance.

Best regards Wolfgang


Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Santorin motoring light?

Robin Cooter <robincooter@...>
 

My Santorin, 004, was not fitted with a "motoring" light. I understand that for some reason Amel would not fit them. I had to put on a bi-colour on the pulpit and a steaming light on the mast!

are located just above the cabin door inside the

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: RE:[Amel Keel

woods deborah <woodsdeborah_56@...>
 

Hi Gary/Joel

Having read your note on new windshield. There are
only two things that will delay the onset of crazing
in plastics, keep the sun off(when possible) and DO
NOT USE any chemicals clean only with fresh water. I
would also request a copy of the 'definitive'
procedure for epoxy repairs to keel if possible please
Joel.
I have recently become an Amel owner Maramu46 - ORION1
and will no doubt have lots of questions to follow! A
previous posting mentioned hull bubbles we have a few
but the boat is a 79 build. Does anyone have any
useful tips for dealing with minor osmosis?

Regards
John and Deb (ORION1)

Hi Joel:

I hope all is well with you and yours. We just
finished hauling Liahona in Jolly Harbor Antigua
for the hurricane season.

I too would like to know the "definitive procedure"
for priming on the keel.

Also, I just had Laurant replace the starboard
windshield due to crazing, do you have any
thoughts on prevention?

Thanks, Gary Silver

Cockpit table

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

I do not know much about the Mango but in case it is any help write
"cockpit table" in the search box and then read my messages 1781,2205
and 2490 and look in the photos section at "Changes to Bali Hai" where
there are pics of my cockpit seat and table.I reused half the original
table but can refix the other half when we have more than four to dine.

same problem? Are ideas, suggestions and pictures avalaible? Thanks for
any help.

The plastic screens on Bali Hai had become dull and slightly misty. We
polished them with an American product and were delighted (and
surprised) to see that they were perfect again and as clear as glass.
The product is Meguiars Mirror Glaze Clear Plastic Polish.
Their website is WWW.Meguiars.com.

Re: Looking to purchase a "South" Amel

Hello Craig And Cathrine.

No particular reason for that specific date.
I am really after an older boat and would consider slightly younger
boats, but do not want to waste time on the plethora of not so second
hand boats that are on the market , essentially at not so second hand
prices, often with not so serious sellers.
