Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Instalation SSB

You need to be careful with these 24 to 12 volt converters.
Ideally to suit the Amel system you need an isolated converter i.e. one where the input negative is isolated from the output negative.
If you use a non-isolated converter where the input negative is connected to the output negative, then you will have a direct path from the house battery negative to the ships ground when you connect to the Icom SSB, as inside the ICOM SSB the -ve 12v rail is connected to ground. This is anathema to the Amel grounding system of isolating the battery negative from ground.
So, to avoid this you either need an isolated 24-12 converter or, do what I did, with a non-isolated converter, and put in a relay to completely disconnect the converter from the SSB when its not in use.
The Victron 24-12 unit mentioned is not an isolated unit.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Battery Options in Santorin

Ian Park <oceanhobo@...>
 

Eric
let me know what you do about the Sterling Alternator to Battery charger. I was looking at that as an alternative to changing to a larger alternator. It reads as if you could connect both the engine and shaft alternators to it (still working independently as originally designed) but would complete a better 4 stage charging regime and be adjustable for different battery types. Has anyone else out there installed one of these??
....and get plenty beers ready on the battery exchange - I've done it twice now and lost about 7lbs body weight in sweat each time. Next time I do it I'm going to sail somewhere cold first!!
I've currently got 2 x 75w solar panels on the aft side rails. They pivot easily at anchor and stack vertically inside the rails when sailing, but they are not enough to keep the fridge going during the day. I need around another 100 w of solar. I did buy a portable generator which I plug directly into the shore power socket. This works well for charging and giving some mains voltage in the boat provided you keep the total outgoing amps within the range of what's being produced. It means Linda is a happy girl because she can use her hair dryer etc when we're anchored - well worth it for a contented crew!!
Good luck with your installation.

There are a lot of inexpensive 24 to 12 volt electronic converters much smaller than the old Icom unit.

I carry a few just in case one of the other 5 converters go bad.

Just google 24 to 12 volt converters. I forgot which ones I purchased .

Here is a sample

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Sloop rig santorin, Stainless steel bolts on the mast foot?

david bruce
 

Hello, 
 We are on a shakedown of our new and beautiful SN006 Liesse, in South Of France, which although going very well and stunningly beautiful I have taken to calling the Motorterranean! 
 I do have the 4 ss bolts securing a large somewhat substantial hemispherical reinforcement bar on the leading edge of the mast.  Surrounding paint at bolt and inspection plate on stb side which is aluminum do show a bit of dissimilar metal paint lifting but it seems superficial and is on my list to address.  
I am curious about your statement about the compression loads on the Santorin sloop Olivier, as it is my understanding that it is the same mast as the ketch but with a longer boom.  On our boat the main sail is well short of the full length of the boom which I assumed is due to an inability of the mast to accommodate any more rolled sail. (clearly no more room when furler).  So it does appear the main is underpowered, is this typical of the sloops?  Also IF the boom is the only thing different on the sloop rig how does this serve increase the compression loads of the mast that you mentioned.  Finally are there any ongoing structural concerns regarding this mast reinforcement which those of us with these earlier boats should be aware?   Sorry to be so long winded.  

Thanks and best regards,  Dave Bruce   s/v Liesse. SN006,

Hello,

yes there are several Santorins (probably only sloops) that have a main mast with a backing aluminum bar (inside the mast) at the front bottom, and bolted with 4 stainless steel bolts (with SS and nylon washers).
It happened once that one of the first Santorins (sloop but not the one our unknown writer talks about)  came back from its maiden cruising navigation with the front bottom part of the main mast collapsed. The aluminum had suffered too much compression and showed slight wrinkles.
The vessel was not showing grounding signs, and no evidence of a bad mast setting (installing the mastfoot not flat on deck, but too much on the front edge) was found.
The cause was probably the vessel beating in strong winds and choppy seas, AND a too thin skin at the bottom of the extrusion. Why only at the bottom?
For those who are not familiar with aluminum extrusion process, and to make it short:
In the aluminum factory, the aluminum alloy, warmed up (but not melting, otherwise this is cast aluminum), is pushed through a matrix with the shape of the mast's profile.
This "tube" is then rolling on roller bars and "strechted" to make it "straight" and not twisted or curved.
During the stretching process, it is possible that the thickness of the aluminum shows too thin areas, or too much curve, or too much twist. The extrusion is thus rejected and recycled.
The faulty mast was probably made of an extrusion that "escaped" the checking process.
So, AMEL decided to install a piece of aluminum of about 50 cm length, 2cm thickness, with the shape of the curved front face of the mast, inside the mast, stepped on the mast's sole, and bolted with 4 S/S bolts.
I cannot tell how many Santorins were treated by AMEL like this. However, this may concern the Santorins sloop with masts of the same batch. AMEL had extrusions made by 20 or 30 units, so this may affect only the Santorins  sloops delivered with masts of the same batch.
This means maybe only 7 or 8 Santorins sloops of 1990/1991.
Why only sloops? Because the compression is higher with a sloop as there is more sail area on the mast than on a kectch main mast.

I'm sure AMEL did the right thing when they (Captain Amel and Jacques Carteau) decided to make this reinforcement system.
Just like when AMEL decided to make a recall on all the AMEL 54 main masts...

Now, for those who own a Santorin sloop and read this post, I'm sure you will have a close look at your mast foot !!

Like Craig, I can't wait to know who set this question... I may give him a lot more answers about the whole vessel (this is called a survey).
And this is definitely the right behavior on this forum.

Olivier.

There are no bolts on the forward face of the original Santorin mast.

Hi every body and thank you in advance for sharin your knowledge!
 
I have visited a 1991 sloop rigged Santorin in La Rochelle couple days ago.
The boat is fine. But i have been very surprised by discovering on the forward face of the mast foot three big stainless steel bolts.
Is it a standard feature?
What is its purpose?
The paint on the mast was tearing around these bolts, is this a sign of ss/aluminium bad neighbourhood?

Bonjour Olivier
What an amazing Amel science you have! The boat in question is named Antioche and is up for sale in la Rochelle.
I have been looking at amels since i first saw them as a kid in le port d'hyères. I think these were big mangos at the time, and in remember thinking "how can someone make such ugly looking boats?" With time came a little bit of wisdom and i learnt the why and how of these amazing vessels.
I have the chance to be introduced to this boat by the nice guy at amel brokerage who sure knows what he is talking about. 
I may leave for a long cruise in the coming years and an amel will be on the list. But the time has not come yet and i wouldn't like to own an amel and let him collect moss in some la rochelle pontoon.
I really appreciat your knowledge and the time you took to answer.
Will reach you, in french, when the time comes.
A très bientôt

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Explosive episode

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Jeff,

Batteries release Hydrogen gas when charging...they release a lot when overcharging. I believe the only thing that would blow the hinges off of that compartment would be Hydrogen gas. I am guessing that the release of Hydrogen gas was caused by either a short in one or more of the batteries, or a charging device overcharging. Either condition would cause the the batteries to overheat.

What was the condition of the batteries after the explosion? Were any battery cases cracked or broken? 

What was the temperature of the batteries? Were some hot?

Have you inspected the vent hose and checked that it is clear to the outside?

Batteries can be bad when delivered new. I bought 12 new house batteries about 4 years ago and 2 of them never left the dock. I tested all before placing them on the boat...2 had internal shorts.

I think maybe you were recording Amps, not Amp/hour. If you were recording Amps, it seems that 1.5 is fine, however, I am guessing that if 150-175 amps poured into fully charged batteries for 30 minutes, you could boil the batteries, releasing Hydrogen...I am not sure of this, but your alternator has an output capability of at least 150 amps. I believe it is controled by a smart regulator, but maybe not on hull #14. Is there a Smart Regulator in a plastic electrical box on the aft firewall slightly above the engine height? 

I apologize for giving you more questions than answers.

It was a big loud pop, not a puff that you might expect from an excess of propane due to a burner left on. It wasn't so much an explosion as a loud POP.

My initial reaction was to think it WAS excess propane. The dials for the stove are touchy on the 54, and I thought I had made the mistake of having a burner slightly on , but unlit, and when enough propane built up, it exploded.

I checked the engine compartment, All OK.

After cleaning up the mess (it wasn't bad), and making the omlets, I went to log in the hourly numbers at the nav station, and noticed that the sea berth mattress and the battery comp artment cover were blown askew, and the facing cabinets were blown open. Upon closer inspection, the battery compartment cover had blown the hinges off.

A couple of points of note:

Batteries were replaced 10/16..replacements were the.same batteries as were originally aboard (lead acid)

New batteries were never allowed to go below 70%. Never saw below 23.3 volts

During motorsailing the AH reading recorded at that point was approx. +1.4AH  at each hourly log entry

The engine was turning 1300rpm, and it's the d3-110 (top end around 3000rpm)


I realized that there was apparent contribution of gas (H?) from the battery compartment that appears to have, if nothing else, created an independent event, and possibly, primarily caused the galley event,


I'm wondering 2 things:

1. Do es the float stage of the engine alternator produce too high of an amperage flow at float stage, during an extended period of engine usage, producing too much of a charge, causing the excess creation of the gas from the charging process?

2. Is the battery compartment improperly vented in the 54? (I thought there was a discussion of this in the past on the forum. Apologies. I don't follow the forum regularly, and may have missed this discussion

I opened the compartment regularly after the episode after the event to be safe.


If there was some kind of a protocol I wasn't following, please, by all means, let me know.

If there is something I was remiss in, or should have done differently, again, please let me know.


There was ZERO evidence of any type of a burning from the explosion.

The only evidence in the sea berth was a slight marking on the wall where the cover pushed hard into the wall on the aft end.


Any educated thoughts on the episode would be appreciated.

I will be tied up for a few months in my latest port of call as I get to the bottom of this event, along with a few other repairs, a few of which I'll seek the forum's advise.

You are getting plenty of good advice from the other members of this group.  The only thing I would add is after you get the system installed, don't try to operate it in a marina.  There is too much interference and you'll think you did something wrong.  I installed ours in San Diego and it wouldn't work until we we were about a mile outside the marina.

Re: Instalation SSB

greatketch@...
 

Just to be clear, the triatic is ONLY good as the secondary DSC receiver on a radio like the 802 that needs a separate receive-only antenna for its DSC system to work.  As Alan points out, it would be terrible as a main antenna. It is too short for for some of the lower frequency bands, and, unless you put the tuner at the top of the mast, you would lose virtually all of your transmitting power just getting to the top of the mast.

Since the DSC antenna is receive only, I'd bet that just tying to any piece of ungrounded rigging would be just as good as the triatic.  When I installed an 802 on my old boat I used a 16 foot (3.5 m) piece of 14AWG wire hoisted in the rig for the DSC antenna, and it work like a charm.  Harmonie came to us with a 710, which doesn't have the DSC function so no secondary antenna is used.

Interesting...
We have an ICOM710 with an AT130 tuner mounted in the hanging locker at the aft end of the pilot berth. Our antenna is the main mast backstay. The antenna lead goes through the head access to the base of the mizzen mast and up the mast a few feet and out a hole to connect with the insulated main backstay. It works well.
We initially tried the triatic stay, as the Furuno weather fax was connected to it, but it was worse than useless with the ICOM SSB, so when we re-rigged the boat a couple of years ago, the insulated triatic stay went west.
Interestingly, did you know, that none of the Super Maramu rigging is connected to ground ?
So apart from the risk of a crew member getting zapped, connecting the tuner antenna wire to any part of the standing rigging would work a treat! 
We insulated the main backstay to avoid problems with crew getting zapped !

Interesting...
We have an ICOM710 with an AT130 tuner mounted in the hanging locker at the aft end of the pilot berth. Our antenna is the main mast backstay. The antenna lead goes through the head access to the base of the mizzen mast and up the mast a few feet and out a hole to connect with the insulated main backstay. It works well.
We initially tried the triatic stay, as the Furuno weather fax was connected to it, but it was worse than useless with the ICOM SSB, so when we re-rigged the boat a couple of years ago, the insulated triatic stay went west.
Interestingly, did you know, that none of the Super Maramu rigging is connected to ground ?
So apart from the risk of a crew member getting zapped, connecting the tuner antenna wire to any part of the standing rigging would work a treat! 
We insulated the main backstay to avoid problems with crew getting zapped !

Some tips?

As always I appreciate the help of those who know how
