Re: gasoline smell

Stephan Regulinski
 

Dear Hans-Joachim,

We stored our gasoline jerry cans in the safety locker. This isolated
them from the cabin, environmental exposure, and all electrical systems
(which reduces the explosion hazard). This solution is not perfect,
because the safety locker is not vented overboard. However, all Amel
lockers suffer from this problem except the camping gaz locker which
does have a vent at the bottom.

The alternative solution is to store on board but to sew up covers with
some material like "Sunbrella" which offers some protection from solar
degradation of the plastic.

A proper vented gasoline locker would be a welcome addition to any boat.
But then, so would a proper solution of the four major storage problems
of every long-distance cruiser: (1) gasoline ; (2) trash ; (3) shoes;
and (4) dinghy plus engine.

Fair winds and following seas,

Stephan G. Regulinski

anyone in our Amel community, who could advise us, where and how we

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Oil Change or addition for Mango furler gearbox

Steve Leeds
 

Hi Alan,

AMEL recommends silicon high temperature grease which they sell at high
cost. I have used a Castrol very heavy grease in the past which was OK
but have found Alvenia (I hope that spelling is right) a pourable low
temperature grease to be better. I think it is made by Shell. It is
not expensive and fills both the upper chamber (accessed through the
rectangular side plate) and the lower chamber (accessed through the round
bottom plate). It can be topped off with a funnel through the top filler
hole. I don't think it is advisable to mix different types of
grease.

I would like to add
oil to the gear box the fib furler on my Mango

#62. I don't have any documentation. Does anyone have experience

and/or documentation for this? I'm guessing that I can just add 90W

gear oil, but the existing oil almost looks like grease and maybe

should be changed.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] fresh water pump and pressure

Udo <udo@...>
 

I have switched our pump out to the Jabsco. I have to check which size
but believe it is the one you are mentioning.

This higher pressure pump is really nice and functions well but has led
to several leeks in the system that I had to trouble shoot. Most of it
was tightening or replacing hose clamps. One issue involved changing out
the original master shower valve since the pressure caused it to
continuously drip. (We have a conventional shower head, rather than the
push button one).

Overall no big deal.



The only other thing is that the control light next to the water pump
breaker is now continuously lit when the breaker is on. With the old
pump the light only came on when the pump was running.



Udo, SM #50

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] fresh water pump and pressure



I am considering replacing the fresh water pump, accumulator tank,
and pressure switch on my ASM with one of the new variable speed pumps
from Jabsco that do not require a separate accumulator tank or
pressure switch. My current pump is the big 40 liter per minute (10.6
gallons per minute)AMFA A88B that delivers up to 29 psi (2.0 bars).
This is the optional pump intended to supply plenty of water to the
optional hose outlet under the helm seat. The pump and the pressure
switch have been giving me problems.

Jabsco has a new 29 liter per minute (7.5 gallons per minute)
variable speed pump,the Jabsco 7.5 VSD (part 41755-0094 for the 24 v
model) that probably delivers enough water for my needs as I almost
never use the hose outlet. It self-primes to 1.8 meters versus 5.5
meters for the AMFA A88B (and the ASM standard A66B), and can run dry.
It's pressure shut-off is 50 psi, which is significantly higher than
the 29 psi of the AMFA.

Has anyone had any experience with a variable speed pump before in
an Amel or any other vessel? Is the higher cutout pressure of 50 psi
a problem? It seems that 40 psi is quite common on smaller, switched
pumps. Shurflo has a variable speed pump, the Extreme Smart Sensor
5.7 that delivers 21.6 liters per minute with a shut-off pressure of
65 psi. I do not know why variable speed pumps have a higher shut-off
pressure or whether this is a concern in an ASM. Any enlightenment
would be appreciated.

Gas Bottles

Ag Av8ter
 

Hello All,

Now that we are in the USA (No. Carolina) I am having trouble finding
anyone to fill our gas bottles (butane camping gaz). Can anyone steer
me to a company that sells the valve that will fit the camping gaz
bottle on the bottle end and have the US fitting on the other for
filling. When in the islands everywhere we filled had these fittings
(wish I had bought one then)but am having no luck here in No.
Carolina. I prefer to keep the camping gaz bottles as we will be
heading to the Med next.

Thank you,

Hi John,

of belts.

Hi Eric,
Thanks for the info, I am astonished.This is a huge load to put on the

Re: Parts for Volvo TMD22P

Hello Tony,

Try Marine Parts Express,65 Dodge Road, Edgecomb, ME 04556. They carry
lots of Volvo parts. I got timing belt and new tach from them last
year, much cheaper than other sources. Go to:

Hello all,

We are in Wilmington, NC with WORLD CITIZEN and are planning to do a
bunch of "nickle / dime" maintenance items. (Read that as a thousand

Can anyone recommend a company that has a good inventory of Volvo
TMD22P parts?

Thank you for your help,

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Compressor and the Best Method of Shipping to the USV...

svbebe <yahoogroups@...>
 

Hello David,

Send an email to Connections (connections "at" islands.vi) and ask
them what is involved...you may have to fill out a UP Postal Service
(USPS) form and fax them back to Connections for them to act as your
agent...I am not sure if there is a requirement like this for UPS or
FedEx, however keep in mind UPS and/or FedEx is 4 to 5 times more than
USPS.

Let me know if you have any problems because I have/had an account
with Connections and possibly you could ship the item to me at
Connections and allow you to pick it up for me. They charge $5.00 USD
per package for their service.

Best,

Bill Rouse

PS contact me off-line at brouse at gmail.com


would accept a Milwaukee 0721-21 V28 28 Volt Right
Angle Drill Kit which has to be bought in the USA as you cant get
them in the
UK.? Sending it to the UK and then taking it back to the BVI's is
going to
be a real PITA not even, thinking about the tax issues getting it
into the UK
and then the BVI's. Also we need to pay a visit to St John at
Easter as some
boat guests dont have a US visa and we want to go to the USVI's for
sure St
Thomas and also probably over to St Croix so the easy way for them
to get
legally into the USVI's is the ferry from West End to Cruz Bay.

Thanks and have a wonderful and happy 2008

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Not everything is perfect at the new Amel 54

dorian_delanda <dorian_delanda@...>
 

Ok, I will tell aboutthe good things:

There is a wonderful owner stateroom with a big bed I want to offer
my wife (and me) because the one at the SM was always too small.

And I love the seperated shower.

And there is a bigger engine which a really like.

And I like the new Rigg with all it's possibilities.

And the guestroom on portside is a better offer than before.

And the new 100L watermaker is very silent - wonderful.

And she is a bit faster than the SM.

To put it in the right way: Every Amel is a very good an solid boat.
And of course the new 54 as well. I am just missing the consequenze
you see and feel on a Super Maramu on the 54; they had to come up
with compromises at all ends because of not really making the boat
bigger.

best
Dorian

I am already there. When will you arrive and where do you expect to
stay. I am at the Simpson bay marina.

The reason I asked is that I had dinner with my usual crew in New York
City last night. One of my crew had an OPO posting which I assumed was
yours looking for crew.

When we have to store a fuel tank of any kind in the
aft locker we put in a heavy plastic the bag and
wire
tie it. That keeps the oders from the rest of the
boat.

We used C-map for eletronic charts in the Med. they
worked very well.. We also made good use of the
Imray
Almanac for the Med. it cost a bit but has all the
ports.

The I-Com 802 with the Pactor III is about as good
as
it get for HF/SSB.

We found that we got good reception on the SSB in
the
Med at most times of the day.

Good luck. Richard and Joan SM 209

Hello all,

We are in Wilmington, NC with WORLD CITIZEN and are planning to do a
bunch of "nickle / dime" maintenance items. (Read that as a thousand
here and a thousand there)

Can anyone recommend a company that has a good inventory of Volvo
TMD22P parts?

Thank you for your help,

Oil Change or addition for Mango furler gearbox

svcharisma
 

I would like to add oil to the gear box the fib furler on my Mango
#62. I don't have any documentation. Does anyone have experience
and/or documentation for this? I'm guessing that I can just add 90W
gear oil, but the existing oil almost looks like grease and maybe
should be changed.
