Joey,

 

First, USAA are a bunch of idiots. We did business with them for years and have slowly moved away from them as they continue to fall behind in customer service. If you want expensive home or car insurance then these are the clowns to call. One day, ask me how I really feel about USAA.

 

For good boat insurance there are many options. We have used this one and thing they are awesome. We have referred many people to Pantaneaus and all have been pleased.  This is the guy to call:

Hi all,

 

I spent today calling several different insurance companies to get quotes on covering an Amel SM.  Here was the outcome:

 

USAA: Does not have Amel listed as a manufacturer in their database (nada.com)

Progressive: Similar situation to Amel and they say the HID needs to be 12 characters (I was given 10 by the seller)

 

I am surprised that Amel is not in their system as a boat manufacturer.  Is there a company that most Amel owners use?  Is this a common obstacle for owners trying to find insurance for an Amel?

 

Thanks for any help here.

 

Best,

 

Joey

 


Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Amel Insurance Providers

 

Joey,

HIN numbers have changed over the years. You do not state your Amel model, year or hull, so I don't think anyone can help you further. Maybe a google search will give you all of the answers. If I remember correctly, you just joined our group and you are searching for an Amel. I assume that you are doing due-diligence on costs, etc. You may want to visit BeBe's Blog and specifically the COSTS tab. 

USAA probably would not and may not insure EU boats. When I checked with them, they did not insure boats outside of the US. The best insurance company changes from year-to-year, and we all have to go with the flow. I am currently negotiating for an insurance policy for Amel School Clients, leveraging the total client base for the best policy and value. Hopefully before the end of the year, I will have more to say about that.

It is easy for Amel owners to get insurance. You probably haven't yet approached Pantaenius US or Velos, which seem to currently be the leading insurers of my US and UK clients.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Toe pulley (headsail)

greatketch@...
 

Alan,

You are in luck!  I am just a bit ahead of you on this... I have attached a photo of the stainless drive tube after the flanges were removed.  On mine, the machine screws were threaded into BOTH flanges of the pulley, so getting the bottom pulley flange off meant I was half done...

The new ones from Amel (which we JUST unpacked) are thru-drilled on the top flange so you might get lucky... 

Underneath the pulley, under where it goes through the stanchion base, there is a cotter pin.  Pull that out Now you can lift the vertical stainless steel drive tube out of the lower Delrin bearing in the stanchion base. Pull it to one side, and lower it out of the top bearing.  Now you have the assembly in hand...  

As for those M5 machine screws that hold the flanges of the pulley on... if they were assembled without some type of corrosion block, they will be very difficult to remove.  I'd suggest the following approach (assuming the existing pulley is beyond saving):

With the assembly in hand you can drop it off at the local machine shop and have them do it... 

OR

Do it the hard way (like I did)

Cut the machine screws between the flanges (be careful not to cut through the drive tube!)  I used a cutting wheel on my angle grinder.  That allows the lower pulley flange to drop off.  If your flanges are thru drilled on the top pulley flange you are likely done at this point other than a little tapping to separate the upper flange and screw.  If not... continue...

I could find no good way of cutting the bolts off the top pulley flange without damaging the stainless drive tube flange.  So get a torch. MAPP gas if you have it. Propane will work, but a bit slower.  No tiny pencil torches, something big. It's all metal, so you can't hurt anything. At the risk of being too obvious, don't heat in place on the boat. You can't get it nearly hot enough without destroying the Delrin bearing and likely the surrounding fiberglass!

Heat one of the bolts and the aluminum pulley flange.  Hot.  No, hotter.  Really, REALLY HOT. You probably can't get it hot enough to glow red, but that wouldn't be bad! Now, plunge it into cold water.  Be careful of steam and hot water splash!  Try to remove the screw.  Repeat as needed.  This process will eventually work. 

Be sure your screwdriver is a perfect fit for the slot in the screw.  If you mangle the slot, you have a more complex problem.  If you twist off the head of the screw, in this case that counts as a win!

As an alternative,  You can carefully drill/grind off the heads of the machine screws.  It will be difficult to do this without marking up the stainless flange underneath.  But if you get the head of the screws thin enough, you can use a center punch to drive them down and out while still stuck in the pulley flange.

When you reassemble, be sure to use Tef-gel, Lanocote, or whatever other flavor of corrosion block you prefer, very liberally on ALL surfaces where aluminum touches stainless.  If you do that, it will come apart without drama in 10 years.

Aren't boats fun???

Thanks Bill,

Pricey parts.

Does anyone know how that mechanism comes apart ?

I loosened off the rope that goes around the pulley and tried in vain to remove the 3 bolts that go through the flange and into the pulley parts. Even my impact wrench with a big hammer failed to move them.
My guess is that they are stainless bolts threaded into the bottom half of the alloy pulley and that's the issue.

Has anyone successfully taken this apart, that could explain how it goes together ?
And how to get those bolts out!

Bob,
I think advertising things on this site is not what the site is about. BUT - I do think that letting folk know that you are selling an Amel is exactly one of the things this site should be for. There are folk who have joined because they’re are en route to buying an Amel, or upgrading from their current Amel or as AMEL,owners we may well be asked if we know of any for sale.
I hope others agree.

Hope your sale goes well.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Iririum Ext. Antenna

Patrick McAneny
 

Eric, We are sending back the cable today for a 40 ft. cable,I think that will be long enough ??? It sounds like you also did not run it through the conduit. The small end of the cable is only 3/4 " , I was thinking that I should be able to run it without cutting the end off,I would prefer that. It will fit through the clam fitting and the round rubber seal has a split in it so it can wrap around the cable. Anyway, now that I have decided to return the cable for a longer one ,I should be able to run it one way or another.I will call and ask about sending me that gold connector.
Thanks,

Hi Pat,
I installed a clam deck fitting on the transom.
I cut the connector off and ran the cable through the  clam fitting. I purchased a fitting exactly like Amel used for the other wires going through the bulkhead and the ssb radio antenna cable.  I then ran the cable through this new fitting on the bulkhead.Then along where the other cables are running over the cabinet, over the hanging locker and into the overhead of the mid ships bunk and finally to  the nav station.

I would speak to whoever you bought the cable from and see if you can exchange it for a longer cable. I an not a fan of spliced coax. Just more signal loss in the cable and and one more connection to go wrong. You can buy a new connector that simply clamps on the end of the cut cable. Get a g old plated one.

Paul, I think I know what you are referring to, I will take another look at that. I only bought 30 ft of cable, if I go that route I would need more, probably 40 ft. I was thinking about coming down by dinghy to see you guys before you leave,but got busy with working on the boat. Your tank really looked clean ,I would like to clean mine now ,but I have a half of tank of fuel I would have to off load. If I don't see you on the Sassafras ,we'll see you down the Bay at the Rally in Hampton.

Olaf,

 

The only reason that one zinc would not corrode as expected is that it is not making proper electrical contact with the bonding system.  

 

When you are hauled out, check for continuity between the problem zinc, and the rudder post in the aft cabin. You will likely find that the connection is broken.  

 

Once you remove the zinc, you might quickly find the problem with the bolt or the zinc.  If the problem is not obvious right there, you'll need to dive deeper into the internal structure of the rudder to find the problem.

Olaf,

 

Possibly this will help you, or, at least make you feel better. 

 

Although I cannot provide any reference for this, I was once told that when a bonding system is connected to more than one anode, the anode depletion be unequal between the anodes and the anode closest to the "load" will deplete first. I believe this to be correct and I have what you describe on many Amels.

If you are leaving the boat on the hard for a while here is a list you may want to think about:

 

 

 

Sea Water Valves

1.     Close all sea water valves. There are two in the engine room.

2.     Put a little vegetable oil in the valves and work them.  Make sure

         you run the engines for at least 1 hour before running the water 

         maker when you return.  No oil should be introduced to water maker.

Salt Water Removal

  1.   Run the engine and Generator for 5 minutes with fresh water.  
  2.   Run the air conditioners with fresh water for 5 minutes.  
  3.   Flush the Toilets with fresh water from the engine room.  
  4.   Run Fresh water through the anchor washClean bilge

   

Bilge

1.     Clean bilge 

2.     Test the bilge pump   

3.     Test the bilge pump alarm.

 

 

Watermaker

  1.   Back flush the water maker membranes.
  2.   Pickle if required.  (or - Find someone to back-flush every week for 10 minutes)

   

Electrical

1.    Turn off all the 24V equipment not to be used.

2.    Turn off fresh water pump.

3.    Circuit breakers in wet locker to be off.

4.    Check current to see if charging or discharging the batteries

5.    Turn off inverter

6.    Bow Thruster locked

7.    Clean out refrigerators

 

On Deck

1.    Loosen Halyards.

2.    Put on Covers as required.

3.    Outboard put away and run with fresh water until all gas is burned out of the carburetor.

4.    Turn off gas bottle valve in trunk.

5.    Take down flags as required

6.    Lock and remove engine key.

7.    Lock all storage lockers.  (From inside Aquarius)

8.    Shut and lock windows/hatches as required. (anywhere water can get in?)

Last - Lock cockpit door.

 

Leaving Aquarius on a mooring ball, or at anchor (Not Recommended)  

1.   Close the valves to water tight doors.

2.   Close water tight doors.

 

Leaving Aquarius for more than a few weeks:

  

1.     Try to have an air conditioner (or De-Humidifier) running if in a humid climate.

2.     Have someone trust worthy to watch over Aquarius.

     a.     Membranes must be flushed every week for 10 minutes.

     b.     Check engine room for any leaks or something wrong.

     c.      Should check the battery level in the morning before 9AM, if below 25V

              at anytime, contact owner.

Hello AMELians,

 

In two weeks my SM2K will be haul out. For me it is the first time of a haul out with a SM2K.

What would you suggest to do before and (directly) after haul out?

 

That’s my current list:

 

Before haul out

-          Empty the black water tanks and fill up with 0.5 Ltr vegetable oil. Open and close shortly the valves.

 

After haulout

-          Flush the Main engine, the generator and the AC’s with fresh water.

 

 

What else?

 

Thanks so much in advance.
