Re: DANFORTH CONSTELLATION COMPASS - 1981 MARAMU

This is a pretty expensive compass to throw away! Why dont you send
it for repair. Go on the internet and type Danforth Compass Repair
into the browser and you will find companies specializing in marine
instruments that can repair your Danforth. My Maramu hull # 91 also
needs this repair. Try VikingOptics.com. Bill K---

The Icom 801 has a 12 and 24 volts supply...meaning no converter.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Shipping Goods from US to Amel in France

svmalaika@...
 

In 2001 when we purchased our Super Maramu 2000, MALAIKA II, we made two
shipments to Amel in La Rochelle; one from our previous Amel in Seattle and the
other from our east coast residence. Both shipments were received by Amel "in
bond" so there was no customs inspection nor duties or taxes assessed. The
goods were held by them until we took delivery of the boat. They were then
loaded aboard and "exported" together with MALAIKA II. No problems. I'd confirm
with Amel that they still offer this service and details such as address and
labeling. Then find a reputable shipper on the US side and send your
things.

Regards,

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

Steve Leeds
 

Ken,
When saltwater gets past the shaft (stainless furler tube) seal, the aluminum casing at the top of the gear case gets corroded and seizes up the shaft. If there is grease/oil in the bottom (round) area of the gearbox, maybe the large bearings are OK. My solution to the above seizing is to install only double-lip seals, carefully polish the shaft bearing surface, thoroughly clean the aluminum gearbox adjacent to the shaft at the top and coat the whole area to include the seal spring with "Lanocote". The seal itself must be carefully seated and may need to be sealed into the case (a bit of a trick after coating everything with Lanocote). The bearing surface of the seal and the shaft must be lubricated with marine grease prior to insertion into the case and seal. A lot of work, but does help! This area is above whatever grease or oil you use in the gearbox, which is why it needs special preparation.

Hi Tom,
No, there are no markings on mine either. It probably wouldn't help anyway as mine is a prototype furler, similar to the one on the Maramu. The newer Sharki's have a smaller furler. Fortunately, the motor is pretty robust and can usually be rebuilt.

Great timing for these posts. I am in the process refitting a Sharki and currently have the furling gear box in pieces in my basement. Thank you for the tip on the gear oil. Another question? The electric furling motor has been working fine But I would like to buy a spare. The problem is the current motor has no makings left on it to be able to track down a replacement. Any help on this would be appreciated.

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

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

Fisher, Thomas W.
 

Steve, Alan,

Great timing for these posts. I am in the process refitting a Sharki and currently have the furling gear box in pieces in my basement. Thank you for the tip on the gear oil. Another question? The electric furling motor has been working fine But I would like to buy a spare. The problem is the current motor has no makings left on it to be able to track down a replacement. Any help on this would be appreciated.

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.

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

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.

Hello to all,

I am new to this group and am searching for some info on later model
Amels, 1995 and up.
I am looking for a new cruising/live aboard boat. My sailing experience
is from a Pearson Commander in the early 70's to an Andrews70 that I
just sold.
I am very impressed with the Amels and was wondering if anyone had some
info as to boat speed.
Are these boats capable of 200 miles a day under normal cruising? Are
there any inherent problems offshore with the boats, things that should
be addressed or rreplaced prior to taking off.
The propulsion systems seems to transfer a lot of power through
different angles, does this have it's own set of problems.
Thanking you all in advance for reading this and to those that will
take the time to respond.
Happy New Year to all.

Hi Golden Daze,

I have US gas bottles on my Maramu and I fill them regularily from Continental bottles. It's very simple to do, you can buy a fitting in almost any shop. BTW, no problems with refills in Greece and Azores.

I just got the two necessary for
a US boat to use camping gas, or fill US bottle with butane.
