Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re:Maramu fuel tank

Richard Piller <richard03801@...>
 

In our 46 we found no access ports. We used a fuel
polishing firm to come in and pump out the tank.
Flush it and pump it again. After three flushing and
a bit of air pressue to pruge the lines ( filters line
removed and of course a change of filters and
bleeding) we got the dirt and water out. We then
installed a dual filter system so if one goes full we
can switch and keep going while we change filters..

Good luck

Hi maramu 48,
I'm afraid I cannot give many advices on a Maramu
46 (I think that's the right LOA), but I own an
Euros 41 in which the diesel tanks were in stainless
still nad built inside the hull without any kind of
access. When I started having some leak problems I
had to cut through the bottom of the locker covering
them to cut an access port and eventually to cut
them out of the boat. In my case I have been forced
to rebuild them in Epoxy fbg integrally to the hull
of the boat because of lack of room to fit the new
ones back in.
I hope that is not your case, anyway good luck.

Richard,

It is identical to the one that was delivered from the factory with the
boat. The only difference is that the pockets for the support bars are sewn
and not seam welded.

Re: Maramu fuel tank

Jochen Hofmann <jochen@...>
 

To the best of my knowledge this is one of the flaws in the Maramu design -
there isn't any.



We have the same issue on our Blue Song - so far fortunately it hasn't
become an issue !



Has anyone had an inspection opening made for the Maramu fuel tank ?



Any advice would be greatly appreciated !



Fair Winds,

Photos of SM Bimini

rbenven44 <no_reply@...>
 

I took two pictures of a SM 2000 in Auckland, New Zealand last
November, because I liked the look of the bimini, and thought it
would be helpful if I ever decided to make one. I don't remember the
name of the boat, but maybe the owner can recognze his boat. I have
posted them on this web site under SM Bimini. Hope they help you.

Good morning,
one among the good windvane is Sailomat 601 . It can be installed
center-aft or off-center.
All the info(and there are a lot) can be downloaded thru the site
www.sailomat.com
In case you decide for such a model I can offer you, at a very good
price, my windvane never used.
I am selling it because I am obliged to change my cruising plane.

Re: bimini for Santorin or SM

drdavegoodman
 

There is a bimini on my 1998 SM. It consists of 3 crossbars of
stainless tubing. The middle crossbar is attached to the forward
lower mizen shroud. The aft crossbar is attached to the mizzen upper
shroud. The forward crossbar is bent on either end and attaches to
fittings on either side of the hard dodger. There is one other pole
that goes from the center of the middle cross bar to the center of the
forward crossbar. The bimini material is made of a white vinyl that
is cut in the aft section to accommadate the mizzen mast. There are
two zippers on either side of the mizzen, one zipper for the middle
and one zipper for the forward crossbar. The forward crossbar swivels
at the attachment points, and there are two webbing type straps that
attach to either side of the forward crossbar and extend forward to
tension the rig.

Test Sail

P Hall <phall@...>
 

Hi All,
I am interested in purchasing a Super Maramu within the next 6 or 9 months.

I would firstly like to do a test sail in reasonably demanding conditions.

Something like the ARC ( las palmas to antigua) in November this year would be ideal.

It will also be a learning experience for me to get to know the boat also.

I would be prepared to get involved in all aspects... cooking, cleaning, etc, and , of course, I will
pay all of my costs for food, etc.

If any existing SM owners can accomodate me, that would be ideal.

I live in Dublin, Ireland.

Good Sailing
Peter Hall

Thanks Lars, that seems like a sound and logical solution. I guess my
hobby will be shifting from cooking to sailing and shading, and perhaps
some shopping. And, of course, sipping. Thanks eveyone for clarifying
the galley issue for me. Hope to meet some of you in the months to
come.

Be safe,

Jean


Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Galley Space

Lars Knudsen <museum@...>
 

Hi Jean



I own a 1993 Santorin which is just about the same as a Maramu. I agree on
using the saloon table as extra space although I have seen a couple of
Maramu's that has been converted from L-shape galley to U-shape galley by
using some of the space otherwise used for the sofa - probably only about 10
inches.



Best Regards

Lars

My apologies on not having my facts straight before posting. It is the
46 Maramu that my husband likes so much. Just to confirm though, the
galley area is the "L" shaped area, and I have no idea what the tray is
for. Thank you so much for clarifying.

It was very kind of you to refer me to your web site. She is a

buyer who will love her as much as you have. All the best!
