Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] AMFA A88B fresh water pump

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Duane,

Check for these issues:
Suction leak on the supply side. There was a fiber washer where the copper tube was secured to the pump. It is likely damaged or now missing. You may have difficulty finding a fiber washer, you can use rubber or silicone. Two hose clamps?

If you removed the one-way valve, it can be reinstalled backwards.

Maybe the one-way valve has either a fiber washer stuck inside or some other trash.

Let me know if I BINGO'd.

Best,

Bill

After I posted this I went back down to the engine

that looked like you could put another pipe on, so I poured
some water in it to help the pump prime and
"Voila!" it worked!

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] sea wather from bow-thruster

Good day to all. There is someone who has the SAME tow-thruster that works well? It would be useful for me to see a picture with activator and plunger switch well aligned, before making changes to my BT.
Thanks.

Not too racy at all, Kent. Just jealous of your opportunities. Keep hearing for the horizon. That usually works.

Have fun with your AMEL .

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] AMFA A88B fresh water pump

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Sorry for your trouble Duanne

I assume you have water in your fresh water tank onboard.
Could there be an "air leak" when you reassemble?

I have installed "pre" (sediment) and "post" (chlorine) filters on my AMFA and had to purge for air, but that is not related to your issue...

Please keep us posted, sincerely, Alexandre

I dismounted the pump to replace the
accumulater tank. After reassembly, it runs but doesn't
pump water.  Is the pump self-priming, or do I need to do
something else?

Thanks again Danny.  Only one eye affected.

Some one said that my other senses should be heightened after losing one.  Hmmm, I've never had a good nose, my hearing sucks, and now only one eye.  Guess I'll have to rely on my senses off touch and taste to evaluate prospective female first mates.

Thanks, Danny, from Shelter Bay Marina on the Caribbean side of the Panama Canal.

I got back to the boat in Curaçao a few weeks ago.  After working on my boat list and waiting for Hurricane Matthew to clear, I went to Aruba for a few days and then to the San Blas islands, Panama.  The immigration office on Isla Porvenir has closed, so sailed to Portobelo, then had to go to Colon to get cruising permit and Marinero Visa.  The Panama immigration service is in a messy transition period now as they try to consolidate services, to eventually make it easier for cruisers.  For now you should just check in at Colon on the Caribbean side.  I'm not sure about the Pacific side.

I'll spend the next two months in Kuna Yala and Bocas Del Toro, then fly home for Christmas.

My eye problem never did get better.  I gave up after 5 surgeries and 2 months of lying on my back or face.  It is slowly going totally black, but that means the glare, double vision, and distortion is almost gone now.  I'm not needing the patch except in bright sunlight now, but might wear it on occasion when I think it might be to my advantage ;-)>

Hi Bill,
I emailed Flight Systems, asking if they had our board.  Response was no....emailed them back to suggest that many Amel owners had the 300-5521.and they should consider it.  No response to date.

Re: 2002 SM2K for sale, EU-VAT paid, 215.000 EUR

niels.hauerslev@...
 

Hi Bill, yes it is my SM2K.
We are selling due to a private situation in the family.
Our AMEL is a great vessel, for the price. We have replaced (not yet installed - to be delivered next month) all interior upholstery (including the foam), for bright cream alcantara.
Mechanically she is ready to go "Mediterranean or Caribbean sailing", and with some additional maintenance she would be ready for a circumnavigation. She just sailed on her own keel back from Martinique in 2015.
The low price reflects that she has "above average" engine hours 5150 (compression is good, no smoking, new turbo and injectors last year). I believe another 5000 hours lifespan is be possible, with normal care and periodic maintenance, impeller, filters, oil changes etc. She has spent a lot of hours running with the diesel engine, during the 4x Atlantic crossings she has seen, which I hear is a kind and good life for a diesel. But it sure adds up the hours :)
Also the rigging is 14 years old, and even if she did not put many miles on the canvas, I would expect to replace the forestay as a precaution, and possibly replace the full rigging if going for a full circumnavigation.
The boat has been lived aboard by 2 people for 6 months at a time, in the Caribbean, since she was new, hence I found the need to replace all upholstery, as it was quite worn when we got her.
With all new upholstery, I think the interior is very nice and well maintained, varnish, woodwork etc is looking great.
If contacting me directly, there is a saving of 5.000 EUR on the brokers fee.
I am happy to answer all questions, and also I invite anyone interested to come see her here in Denmark - she is located 40 minutes from Copenhagen International Airport.
For a new owner, I would be happy to help sail the boat to a destination abroad.
I hope not to have offended the group, by posting the link to DeValk on this forum. If so, please accept my apologies. 
25 knots and sunshine to all current and future AMEL owners.
Niels

Thanks Bill, for your help.
 I looked in the box of the switches and, I think, that the problem is right there.
I enclose 5 photos to make it clear what type of control box is : The boat is Santorin 122 year 1995.
I run some tests: at the end of the lifting or lowering movement of the BT a sound signals the end of the operation. Does it mean that the switches work correctly?
Could it be simply a problem of incorrect positioning of the locks on the spindle that triggs the switches? (photo BT5)??
For now I turn it off manually, but I need to find asap a solution.
Thanks to all.
