I can't speak for any other sailmakers but there is no duty on sails that we supply to customers in the EU. 
Our prices include VAT prepaid so there are zero surprises. 

I own Island Planet Sails if you're not familiar.

so do these polishes give any water repellent effect like rain X does on windshields?  If not is there anything people use to keep the Screens cleaner during sailing?
Thanks

Meguiars also makes a three step cleaner, polish and wax system for plexiglass. Int's called "Mirror Glaze" I used to use it on aircraft windscreens all the time and now on Adagio. Some elbow grease, but a nice, clear finish afterwards.

Hi Paul,

Yes there are several products designed to polish hazy/scratched plastic -you'll get what you pay for: the best are used on the plastic windscreens of airplanes.  Heavy/deep scratches can not be repaired however minor haze and shallow scratches can be temporarily corrected.  Just to set the proper expectations, though, the polish is not permanent.  Depending on the exposure, the improvement will last from six months to a year and then need re-polishing but it is certainly better than replacing the windscreens.

Greg,


I have no first hand experience with the mainland EU, but many islands in the Caribbean, including those that are officially part of the EU, have VAT and Duty exceptions for "Yachts in Transit." Taxes are not collected on imports that are addressed to boats with a valid short-term cruising permit.


Of course if your yacht has been imported into the UK or other EU country and is not "in transit" Duty and VAT are probably just going to be the cost of life.


For Duty purposes, be sure you know where your sails are really coming from. Very few are made in the USA anymore, most coming from Siri Lanka, Thailand, Hong Kong, or China.

Hazy wind screen

sykerpa

Our starboard wind screen have patches which are hazy, if one put water or wash them it dissapere, but as soon as it dries the haziness is back. It looks almost as on a car windscren when wenitilation is poor and the surface just starts to get #foggy# anyone know if it is possible to get rid of the haziness?
Have anyone tried to polish the screen? when I was a kid we use to make items in # Plexiglas # and when polished they shined as crystal.
If we need to change the wind screen, anyone who had made that so that one also can open the starboard windscreen

It is possible to clean off haze. I used Novus 7100 plastic polish kit. It consists of three containers: 1) for cleaning and polishing ; 2) for light scratch removal and ; 3) for heavy scratch removal . It costs $16 on Amazon. You will need serious elbow grease or - preferably - a power buffer to get stellar results.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Amel54 Main Sail Furler

Hello Bill
Verry well explaind! It's exactly how to handle it . I do this since 22 years with Tamango 2

Hanspeter,


I am sure Bill R. will have his own thoughts to add, but here are my ideas...

I believe you are suggesting that the sail needs to be rolled up to gybe.  I never do this.  There is no need. Boats with traditional sails do not douse the sail to gybe, and you do not have to either.  Here is my normal procedure, which is basically the same for the main and the mizzen:
  1. Sail at 160 to 150 degrees off the true wind.
  2. Loosen the preventer, and detach from the gunwale. I usually leave it attached to the boom and let it come across with the sail. If you use two preventers, it is even easier, just uncleat the one on the leeward side.
  3. Bring in the main sheet until the boom is almost over the traveler. If you set it up too tight the traveler will be hard to move.
  4. Move the traveler all the way over to what will become the new windward side of the boat.
  5. Slowly turn the boat to 160-150 degrees off the apparent wind on the new tack. During the turn the boom will cross to the new side.  If you have removed most of the slack from the system, it will not be a violent event..
  6. As soon as the boom crosses, ease the sheet.
  7. Reattach and tighten the preventer.
A second part of your question might be how to furl the sail when reaching or running in strong winds.  The answer is you need to come up into the wind enough to get the sail luffing, off the shrouds and the boom free. This is not at all unique to a roller furling sail.  A traditional slab reef sail can not be pulled down if it is held tight to shrouds by 30 knots of wind. Once the sail is fully luffing it can be rolled up.  You do not need to point the bow into the wind, but you DO need to get the wind pressure off the sail.  No need for the engine, the jib will keep you moving along at an appropriate wind angle.
.  
Can you get away with rolling the sail under tension?  Yes--sometimes.  Maybe even most of the time. But doing so risks fouling the sail, and is very hard on the sail, and the furling gear and should be avoided. If you have battens in the sail, it might not be possible.

Hopefully, by the time the true wind has gotten to 30 knots you have a pretty significant amount of sail already rolled up, ("Reef early!  Reef often!")  so the last bit goes pretty easily.

From Alexandres photo, the unit is marked 220V 50hz, yet we can plug these into US power at 60 hz.  I just find it odd that they don't mark it with both frequencies...or did Amel modify it somehow?

 

The Dometic system that Eric mentions must have the same 50/60hz ability, but on the web site they list different units for 50hz vs 60hz, there isn't one that will handle either frequency.

 

I understand some appliances are not frequency sensitive, but I thought a compressor would be?

 

Just curious...

You are obliged to pay customs and VAT as soon as you buy things outside from an other country then were you are. Within Europe, there is a VAT-free commercial area, meaning you don't need to pay VAT Or customs when shopping from one EU-Country To an other.
If you are a "boat-in-transit" you can get your VAT money back, when you leave EU, but not the customs fee. And the refund is complicated. It means you have to pay the VAT first.

My suggestion is that you buy your sail here in Europe instead.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Mizzem mast radar cable

greatketch@...
 


Thanks Christian,

It's solved now. 

I am well familiar with mast conduits, having installed them in masts before for all the reasons you describe, as well as keeping the wires quiet as the boat rolls.  The primary frustration with this project was everything I found was different than the descriptions I got before starting. Maybe Amel did things differently on the newer boats? 

Based on the description of a large channel with wires immobilized with foam plugs, I assumed it would be easiest to pull the wire UP the mast with the terminal plug attached. When I ran into problems I looked in with my borescope. When I saw the conduit and rivets, It was obvious that leading with the plug wasn't going to work, and pulling DOWN through the conduit with a bare end leading was going to be the required approach.  That went easy as pie. It would have saved a couple trips up the mast if I had known ahead of time. Live and learn. Always look for yourself--first.

As you describe, there are multiple wire channels in my mizzen mast.  The radar lead is the only wire that runs in the separately attached aluminum conduit (not PVC on my boat).  The other wires (AIS antenna lead, Tiratic antenna lead, Deck light power) all run in a channel extruded as part of the mast section itself.  I assume that is the conduit you describe as running to the top of the mast.

Thanks again

My boat has conduit that runs up the starboard side of the wire channel in the mizzen mast. It is attached to the starboard side of the wire channel in the mizzen mast. The problem is that the end of my radar cable keeps getting hung up on the rivets. With enough wiggling and tugging, I have gotten it most of the way through, but the last little bit is giving me fits.

Since nobody mentioned the presence of conduit, I am guessing this is a special "improvement" from a previous owner?

Hallo Ofer, I have to add to the previous answer, that it is very important to see and hear the splashing water from the siphon is working - otherwise you have the risk of getting water into the engine. But you are in the same situation as I was few days ago - looking for something you find new things on the boat -still after 5 years.
We had barnacles on the prop after the winter and the engine reaches only 1100 rmp - 45 minutes diving for cleaning the prop. My first year with propspeed.I found one side of every three blades relative clean and after cleaning the surface of the blades looked good and max. RPM is 2450 .
Whenever I would have a problem with Rpm of the engine I would dive !
With every fuel I take I add Grotamar against diesel-pest. If you think your fuel is contaminated a Grotamar shocktherapy and changing the fuel filter.
Do you know that your VW TDI has a OD2 output to get more diagnosis from the motor. 
It is in the box on starboard of the engine with the 3 red led on the top.
You will find OD2 meters in the Internet,  I searched for VW TDI OD2.
