I didn't see a number to contact you.

Please give me a call on my son's phone 6312768441 and we'll plan for later.

I look forward to meeting you folks, along with Duane and Peg, who I will call this morning (in case you see this email)

Re: SAMS certification?

Hi Porter, and others,

If there is an AMEL-savvy surveyor going to be in the SE Caribbean in February, then we would be interested to share/contribute to costs.

We anticipate the need for a few weeks of routine post-purchase maintenance (e.g., iron keel, engine room hoses & pipes, S/W pumps & heads) and perhaps some small works to re-instate some equipment and systems back to a closer-to-AMEL than is currently the case.  That would be the intent for having Dave/Olivier or whom-ever come and look over our 2003 SM, to inform our decisions re the size and priorities of the works program.

Time-frame: early/mid February; location: Martinique.  Can be flexible.

Looking forward to meeting you Porter, in a few weeks in Martinique.

Best,
David

Anyone in?  And then would he be available?

If you decide to use Olivier, I may be interested as well for an in the water survey in the Caribbean.  As I recall there were others who voiced interest as well - which would drive travel cost down.  For me, it all depends on when and where.

Well, OK then.   I guess that ends that discusssion.

Re: mainsail furler/ headsail sheets

Hi All,

I second the advice to avoid going too much oversize.  Moonshot-now-Perigee was re-rigged prior to our purchase with oversize sheets for the Headsail/Genoa and, whilst this gives confidence for the big blow, they do not fit the self-tailers at all well, requiring care (and muscle) when wrapping the sheets, and a watchful eye and re-sheeting on occasion, otherwise resulting in slippages or once or twice losing hold completely.

I will be going down a size when it comes time to replace.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Yanmar 75HP - Cannot go over 2300 RPM

David Pawley
 

Its possible there are 2 types of injectors for the same engine, one set for derated. The difference would be seen in the nozzle hole Dia. Have you still got the old injectors!. Visual examination should be adequate but better to use nozzle cleaners. I have no idea if Yanmar have derated injectors, but other large bore engine manufacturers certainly have.

Dom,

The autoprop rebuild is not difficult just tedious and takes the  good part of a day.

If you Contact AB the bruton distributor in the USA they will sell you the bearings needed and rent you the special tools needed for the rebuild at a nominal price.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Rub Rail

Mike Ondra
 

Duane,

I cannot speak to your hull rubrail details, only our SM#240. They may have changed, which is why it is so important to always include hull #’s in these postings.

As you saw in the drawing, the rub rail proper is a continuation of the hull turning out, then up, and then turned back towards the boat. It is the same stuff as the hull, fiberglass, the sketch even showing the special mold that is used when laying it up. There is no joint between the rub rail protrusion and the hull . It appears that after attaching the deck/cabin house to the hull, they are glassed together on the inside to form a structural monocoque hull.  The rubber gutter insert simply closes the exposed gap between the 2 parts. We have had our rubrail repaired by a fiberglass shop.

Hope that helps.

Mike

Hi Mike,

 

That drawing is interesting.  It appears not to distinguish between the hull below the rubrail, and the rubrail.  But the rubrail isn't fiberglass, at least I think it's not based on the gouges I see.  It does look like thermoplastic though.  The sketch does not infer a joint at the bottom of the rubrail, and my finger doesn't find a joint there either.  I wonder if they put the rubrail in the mold and fiberglassed to it?  Or is it just part of the hull???

Re: Bow thruster saga continues!

Duane Siegfri
 

Patrick,.something shoved the motor out of line, or perhaps you were rolling side to side, or maybe something jammed in the bow thruster "hull section".  At any case, all you need to do is prop up the motor so it doesn't fall, then identify the cable lifting the motor and remove the two aircraft cable clamps to free the motor.  Lower it down to un-jamb it and then reconnect the cable clamps in their original position.  Marking the cable is a good idea prior to removing the clamps so you can put them back in their original position.  

Then locate the "black box" adjacent to the motor, stbd side, more than midway up the trunk, remove the cover and check the fuse.  It's likely blown.  It's a 10 amp (if I recall correctly) auto type fuse and there may be one taped to the box.  Replace it and you should now be good to go.  

You might want to dive on the hull to ensure nothing is jambed there.

Bow thruster saga continues!

pjn.mccallin@...
 

I simply do not know to tell you this but after using the thruster in anger today, I thought it had risen into it's up position, however when I came to use it again I found that the cable at the top had pulled the cigar shaped bit off center so that the cigar was wedged tight under the bell shaped receiver, and I mean tight.

It will not go down and obviously cannot go up.

Does anyone have any ideas what went wrong and how to free the motor off/down. I assume that as the trip in the 24v panel had popped off the motor was trying to raise itself till it jammed god knows if I have damaged the jack motor. . Greatful for any advice, Patrick CARAMELLE 385.

BeBe, SM2k, #387 came with 18mm, but the specs say 16mm.

A few years ago I bought 3/4" which is about 20mm. This was New England Rope Sta-Set. It is soft and pliable and very strong. The larger size ia easier to use and fits the winches. You should buy 150 feet total...my opinion.

Hi Jeff,
Darn, I was just visiting friends in Boynton Beach.  I'm not on the boat right now, and don't know the answer to your questions off the top of my head.  I bought my furling and outhaul motors and gearboxes from Amel.

Let me suggest that you don't get new sheets that are significantly larger that the originals.  They won't fit well in the self tailing winches.

Hope I meet you somewhere and have a beer/wine/rum or two!
