Aft Holding tank

kilkea_2 <kilkea2@...>
 

We have a problem with a split of the copper outflow pipe just where it
joins the holding tank! It looks like a fault in the copper pipe and
the split is 5 to 10 mm. I think I could epoxy or use some liguid metal
over the split then use some cloth and fiberglass to wrap the pipe down
about 2cm on the copper.
The best way would be to remove the holding tank and have the whole
copper pipe replaced but do not know how to remove it. Does anyone know
how this could be done?
Thanks in advance,
David


Santorin fuel tank

Ken Knight <oceanhobo1@...>
 

Has anyone had any experience in cleaning out the fuel tank on a 1994
Santorin. If so I would appreciate any advice or suggestions. Their does
not appear to be any inspection panel or anyway of accessing the
interior other than through the filler tube.

Many thanks

Ken

Try Bennett Bros in wilmington , NC. They are up the cape fear river and under two big bridges. They can do anything. You can call me in Wilm. 910-470-1225. There is another one in oriental NC called Deatons Boat yard. Very good. But bennett bros builds boats also. Call Patricia and use my name as reference. Murray Seidel. SM #349 Sundance. Enter the Cape Fear River from the Atlantic. First time in do in Daylight. I live in wilmington and haul out here.

Hello all,

It is time to start heading back to the US. Can anyone tell me of
a "good" marina that has yard facilites? I would like to pull the main
and generator out of our boat and give the engine room a total
upgrading. We have reservations at a marina in New Bern, NC., but
there are no facilites for the work I would like to get done. We would
prefer to stay in No. Carolina or So. Carolina maybe even Georgia. We
plan to get there just about Christmas. Thanks in advance for any
suggestions.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] main engine prop seals

Richard Piller <richard03801@...>
 

Dave, Be sure to replace the rubber o-ring seal in the
new bushing. Second. Use the old bushing to push the
new seals in... be sure there are no burrs or bumps on
the old bushing... This makes sure that you get an
even push on the new seals and don't damage anything.
Good luck

calll the corps of engineers navigation section and go with the charts. They are very helpful. Usually you can get under all the 65 foot bridges by waiting for low tide slack water, then wait on the other side 2houors to deepen the water. Murray seidel sm349 910-470-1225

We own SM #240 and are also headed south from the Chesapeake to South
Carolina in three weeks.

I assume you are talking about going through the ICW; unfortunately,
while the regulations call for a depth of 12 feet, it has been much
neglected over the past few years and has silted up in many areas.
Postings in chat rooms talk about a five foot depth in some spots; I
motored the ICW in a previous boat six years ago, and at times bumped
with a six foot keel. I don't see any alternative for you except the
outside route around Hatteras. There is no place to put in between
Norfolk and Beaufort, NC. Be sure to allow yourself a reasonable
weather window; with planning, it should not be much of a problem,
but the conditions around Hatteras are very fluky and can change
quickly. Always an adventure, but your boat should be able to handle
most of what Hatteras can throw at you.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] More Inland Waterway Questions

Dr. Seidel <mseidel@...>
 

The bridge at Snows Cut south of wrightsville beach, nc. can be navigated at dead low tide ( the tide time given for carolina beach inlet ( south of Masonboro inlet). I take my Sm #349 through frequently, but be prepared to pass caroline beach inlet 2hours earlier and anchor in entrance to the cul de sac leading to the town center of carolina beach. The docks on the south of snowns cut in the cul de sac are not deep enough for the 6.5 feet as the tide drops. Murray Seidel "sundance" . 910-470-1225. Also suggest going to the corps of engineer's office and taking charts and speaking with the navigation section people. They are very helpful.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Quantity of bowthruster oil

Dave, Bel Ami,

My bowthruster has a small see-through reservoir mounted in the
port side cabinet in the V-birth with a feed tube down to the bowthruster.
It is easy to monitor the fluid level and add the 90 weight oil. The
reservoir holds about 0.3 liters.

Great. I used .3 liters after changing all the seals, including the

Dave, We just did ours yesterday here in Annapolis. A
good grade of 90 wt. in exactly the quanity you need
is available at most boat supply store in the outboard
sections. A tube of oil can be poured right in and
that is enough. Better still using the "tube" you
don't have a smelly bottle laying about. If gear lube
spills it's on hell of a smelly mess..
Good luck and fair seas.

Hi Anne and John, It seems that hotmail will allow me to write a fresh

My deleted replies were to thank you for your chum's observations on
Coppercoat--rather different from those on the website...
The orange peel comment rings a bell from something I read a few years ago.
I wonder if they have now changed the mix? It needs to be rolled on , using
very small quantities, one litre at a time, mixing vigorously.
I see that Mr Matthews now puts it on his new Oystercatcher so maybe they
are having more success with its application.I need to do some more
