bug screens for small portholes

Duane Siegfri
 

I'm looking for suggestions on how to put screens over the small portholes on the SM2000, for example the one over the stove/oven.

Thanks,

Re: Alternative for not working Sonic Speed sensors

There are basically two types of P79, 
One is a direct connection to Hydra 2000 or Raymarine or....any analogue system,
Any of these should work...just cut off the connector and wire directly.
  • P79, Entry-level, 50/200 kHz, 600W
    • P79-2 - Autohelm 2-Pin Depth Only
    • P79-BB - Black Box 8-Pin Depth Only
    • P79-RCA - Datamarine RCA Connector Depth Only
    • P79-235-FARIA - No Connector Depth Only
    • P79-8 - Fuji 8-Pin Depth Only
    • P79-10F - Furuno 10-Pin Depth Only
    • P79-6G - Garmin 6-Pin Depth Only
    • P79-HB - Humminbird #9 Connector Depth Only
The other is a NMEA version...called a P79 Smart™ Sensor

Only use this one if you are connection to NMEA 0183 system.

In a related thought on the second half of your post, although at first glance speed through water (STW) and speed over ground (SOG) might seem redundant they are not.

Having both allows you to calculate actual current set and drift which, at least to me, are vital navigation data. If I had to chose one, I would definetly choose STW as the more important navigational tool.

For compatibility information on the P79 you might call Airmar directly. They have good tech support.

I have a P79, but did not connect it to the Hydra.

Re: Alternative for not working Sonic Speed sensors

Hi Bill and others,

Thanks for the information and idea's you provided.

Just a question about the Airmar P79 depth only transducer. Which specific model do I need to connect this to the Hydra 2000 computer?

In the mean time I bought a used B&G paddle wheel transducer tot put in the hole of the B&G depth sensor. One of the suggestions of Bill Rouse to buy a Tinley box to convert SOG data from the GPS to the B&G analogue meter is quite costly and these data are already visible on my plotter and on the autopilot screen. Therefore I bought the paddle wheel sensor, only to be used under way. So I need an in-hull depth transducer, if I don't want to drill another hole in the boat.

Kind regards,

Willem J. Kroes

Thanks, Duane.  Mine are white, so I'll replace them when I change my filters.  I'll be prepping for a few years in the SPac and will buy spares for most everything, that's now on my list.  Thanks again!

Hi I am interested in your photos, i do not not have have an Amel yet but will hopefully be purchasing one by the end of summer. Looking for a 2000- 2004 Super Maramu which i believe is what you have. I have been following the yahoo group closely gleaning everything i can.

Hi,’

I was on Kimberlite last week and took photos of my fuel pre filter  assembly, pump hoses and filter.

I also have a photo of my auxiliary fuel tanks (75 gallons) that are in my port outboard locker.

If you are interested please send me your email.

 

I also have photos of the install of my espar heater and the conversion of the dishwasher to a top loading refrigerator.

Re: Membranes and O rings

Duane Siegfri
 

Kent,

I have the Duo 60 and recently replaced the filters.  They were SW30-2521 from Air Water & Ice, 2.5 inches diameter by 21 inches in length.  Another thing to check is the end caps for cracks.  Apparently these watermakers came with white end caps which were prone to cracking.  Dessalator replaced the caps with a different material in black to avoid confusion.

Thanks, Bill.  
I didn't know if the 160 just used more membranes, or different ones.  Since they are all the same diameter, maybe the fittings and o-rings are the same?

You are a veritable fount on knowledge.  Thanks for staying with us!

Well, hesitated to write before I figured it out, but have an ongoing saga that just seems to beat the odds.


The Boat Speed dial did not have a backlight ... dang it, I wanted a back light!  So, being the intrepid sort I thought I'd take the thing apart and figure it out.  Nope, too deep and too sppoky for me so I packaged it up and mailed it off to Tinley in Merry Old England.


Now, the package arrived just a day before we were to set sail on an Annapolis to BVI crossing so I had o opportunity to set it in place until we got down the Chesapeake to Hampton.  I installed it and all seemed well, ... except it didn't work.  Well, ... the back light worked so I got what I wanted, but the trade-off was that it didn't move. Ah well, not critical.  The packaging had been mangled so I presumed it took a bad shot in mailing and needed to be re-repaired. T he opportunity did not present itself in Hampton, and the fellow who does these gauges in the BVI was too swamped to even talk to me so I wrote to Tinley and they said they would warranty the work. Then I found out how much it would cost to ship it and decided to hang on to it until I gt to Martinique.


In Martinique the shop took it in and for pretty much the same money that it would've cost to ship it ti England put a repair on it.  He swore that the instrument bench tested OK, but as we were sailing away it went to 6.5 kts and froze, then swung around to zero and then to 11kts and froze ...  


So, somehow we managed without it clear across the Atlantic and I just had it looked at it again here in Turkey.


"The display is fine", he says. But it does not work.


So, after digging around, doing a reset and setting the appropriate numbers into the computer I still have no results and am wondering what is my next step.


Is there a chart or table with the reference voltages or signals from the computer to the analog dial?  The digital readout on the Hydra 2000 works fine and always has so should I presume that the gauge is indeed still faulty, or is it bugged because the system was operated so long without the gauge that the computer has given up trying to tell its story?  


Can I do anything else in the way of reset/reboot to see if it 'finds' the gauge again? Is there any way to determine if there is signal (sin/cos) to the gauge?  


Guess I can just pay a tech to come tell me what the easy way is (replacement) but I'd rather solve this one without a big price tag right now, 


For the record, our dinghy, with a Torqueedo on it and lashed to the boat about 4 feet from the bow will generate nearly 6 kts of apparent boat speed while we're in the slip :)  That's a cool way to not have to go sailing to test things.


Thanks in advance!!

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Membranes and O rings

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Kent,

I know the answer to your question, but you probably want more. The answer is no, they are not the same. 

More:
SW30 - stands for saltwater 30 series
2540 - is the measurements of the membrane in inches 2.5" diameter and 40 inches long. 

They are rated at 80 liters an hour and that is the primary reason that I believe that you do not have the same membranes in a 60 liter/hour. 

You probably have SW3025XX with XX being the legnth of the membrane. Almost all saltwater membranes are 2.5" in diameter.

How did you balance the weight of 75 gallons (over 500 pounds) of diesel that far outboard on the port side?

I ask because I am in a constant battle to keep Harmonie from heeling to port, and I have nowhere near that much weight to port!

Sebastien,

I know this boat. The gentleman that the present owner bought Languedoc from is a very experienced marine industry professional in the UK. In terms of systems, particularly the electrical, rigging, and spars, you will not find a better done Maramu. It's definitely worth traveling for.

Hi I am interested in your photos, i do not not have have an Amel yet but will hopefully be purchasing one by the end of summer. Looking for a 2000- 2004 Super Maramu which i believe is what you have. I have been following the yahoo group closely gleaning everything i can.

Hi,’

I was on Kimberlite last week and took photos of my fuel pre filter  assembly, pump hoses and filter.

I also have a photo of my auxiliary fuel tanks (75 gallons) that are in my port outboard locker.

If you are interested please send me your email.

 

I also have photos of the install of my espar heater and the conversion of the dishwasher to a top loading refrigerator.

Bill, I just got mine off the rack at a marine store in Martinique.  No clue what the part number was but it seemed readily available and fit just fine.  Should be able to unscrew it and pocket it into any place that sells rigging parts.
