Hi Alan,

Olivier is arranging his own appointments but he has some in Auckland, Whangarei and tentatively Whangaroa so Im sure an Opua one would fit in. His email is Olivierbeaute@...  if you want to contact him. Enjoy New Cal. Wish I was there.

Regards

Danny

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] FW: Climma has got me stumped

Mark Erdos
 

Hi John,

 

Thanks for the thoughts. The three units are in series. The aft unit is the problem child and is the first in the series (gets the coolest water). The exit flow is very strong and the other units work fine.

 

Yesterday, it kept shutting down after about 15 seconds. I tried to start it 4 or 5 times and gave up. It sat for about four hours, I tried again. This time it worked the first time and it has been running fine for two days. During the four hours, I didn’t do anything to it. It has the same flow of water now as it did when it kept giving the HP errors. The Climma site only refers to the water flow for this error and in my case this is clearly not the problem.

 

As I said, this unit seems very sensitive as it always the first unit to stop if the filter is dirty. I am wondering if the sensor that checks for the temperature or high pressure is failing. Not sure what that even looks like and the Climma instructions and site aren’t much help for replacement parts.

 

Just as I wrote this, the dam thing just shut down with an HP error – I am really starting to hate Climma

 

 

With best regards,

 

Mark

Hi Mark,

   I sometimes get the HP trip after 15 seconds.  I think it is junk in the freon line.  Reason I think this is the sea water circuit is series now on my boat so I know there is good water flow to the unit.  Second when I switch the unit to heat pump it runs fine.

 

Originally my boat was plumbed with units in parallel.  One was clogged with no SW flow while other was fine.  At the hull flow looked fine.  

 

Spent a month in Le Marine with AC running.  Had to use dock water pressure to backflush the mud out of the system.

The rear AC unit aboard our boat has always been the most finicky when the strainer is dirty.  It is the first to get the HP error and normally I can change the strainer to make it happy. There are times when the entire AC system needs to be flushed and I can normally tell by the exit stream.

 

However, this is a little different. I am getting an HP error within a few minutes of start up. The system is really clean and I have an excellent jet stream of water exiting the boat. The other two units are working like champs.

 

The cooling pipes n the rear unit around the compressor feel normal. The top coil is hot, the lower coil is warm when the unit runs. After it give the HP error and shuts down, the coiling tubes instantly feel cool meaning I have a good flow of water.

 

Does anyone know if there is any other condition that would cause an HP error?

 

I am stumped!

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Sargasso seaweed ( in Sainte Lucie / Frensh Antilles)

Ian Park
 

We have just returned to UK from Caribbean after 4 years there. The Sargasso weed has been a big problem on the eastern coasts of all the islands, but not the west coasts where the main anchorages are.
However, when crossing it is most likely that you will meet large patches of Sargasso weed (40m x 40m) from halfway across.
This will affect things like wind vane rudders, towed water generators and fishing lines.
Amels don’t have a problem as the keels and rudders shed the weed easily.

Have a good crossing

Loose Screw in Passage way

WASABI - Rudolf Waldispuehl
 

Hi Amelies


I observed a vibration in the passage-way when engine was running on my AMEL-54. 

I found two big screw (see pictures) opposite of the battery compartment, and tried to tighten the one who was loose. But suddenly when I touched the screw it was not holding at all and I was able to pull out by hand. The bolt is 70mm x 12mm

I have not discovered a screw-nut or thread counterpart inside. I was not able to find out for what those screens are and what they hold. From the other-side in the engine room, I have no access because there is the fuel-tank and I don't think these bolts are fixing the fuel-tank? There are only 2 screw-bolts, one at the very beginning and one at the end of the passageway.


Does anyone know what these screws are for, and what they fixing/holding?

Is it just to hold the wood panel in the passage-way? Or its it part of the fuel-tank?


Hope someone of you can give me a hint or an inside few, so I can fix it. 

Thanks and looking forward for many advices

Cheers

Olivier Beaute to New Zealand

Danny and Yvonne SIMMS
 

Hi all, particularly New Zealand based Amelians. I checked with the moderator before posting this and of course got Oliviers permission.

Olivier Beaute the well known specialist in Amel yachts is coming to New Zealand soon to do work with some owners. Kindly he has offered to make himself available for consultation with any others who may be interested. It is a great opportunity for us antipodeans to have access to someone of Oliviers experience. He worked for Amel in France for many years and now operates a private consultancy. I doubt if there is any other individual with his knowledge of Amel yachts.

He will be in New Zealand from October the 27th leaving on November the 3rd. He has appointments in Auckland, Whangarei, and possibly Whangaroa or Opua.

His contact email is  olivierbeaute@... if you wish to contact him. 

He emailed me in reply to my question and said "You may post about my visit in Auckland on the yahoo forum and I'll do my best to meet the local Amel owners who may have questions".

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Goit Deck Hatch Lens Reseal

greatketch@...
 

Ryan,

I ended up using SCS200. I had some onboard, it was suitable for the purpose. There are a number of silicones formulations that will stick to both acrylic and aluminum, but in every case the surface prep is critical, especially for aluminum.  

As we disassembled and cleaned out hatch frame, the failure was obviously at the silicone/Al bond because there was a lot of debris of older sealant remaining behind.  The surface prep for the last repair was just not good enough.

Once ALL of the old sealant has been removed, and the surface solvent wiped, the aluminum should be wire brushed to remove all oxidation and old sealant. Then wipe it again to be sure the surface is clean of dust. Cover with silicone sealant right away, before oxidation can significantly change the surface of the metal.

The surface of the lens should be throughly cleaned, and then wiped with isopropyl alcohol, then do not touch the sealing surface with bare fingers.  Skin oil can reduce adhesion on the smooth plastic surface.  

I avoid using solvents that can attack acrylic like toluene, MEK, and acetone.  The risk of damage to the unsealed part of the lens is too high.

There wasn't anything unusual about the Goiot hatches.  Things went very much as I expected.  Hopefully, nothing to worry about there for years....

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Goit Deck Hatch Lens Reseal

Ryan Meador
 

When I redid the hatches on my old boat, Atkins and Hoyle recommended GE SCS2000 silicone.  It worked great and was still strong and leak-free when I sold the boat 7 years later.  Also at the recommendation of A&H, I used Silaprene (though I'm not sure which specific variant) for attaching new hatch gaskets at the same time and it held up great.

Hmm, thanks, Gabriele,  I didn't realize that.  When I ordered the new lens, I was told I could either have acrylic or plexiglass.  Acrylic being stronger, but Plexiglass being more resistant to scratches.

Here's a blurb I just found: Although Plexiglass is a form of acrylic plastic, there are subtle differences between the two types. Plexiglass has the distinction of being harder than normal acrylic which makes it easier to drill and cut without breakage. Additionally, Plexiglass is more chemical resistant than traditional acrylic.

I looked it up on Dow's info page.  Scuffing the acrylic with 80 grit sandpaper, then cleaning with alcohol is recommended with DowCorning's 795.

I'll let everyone know how it turns out.  I'm using DC795 grey color.

I’m just about to do one on Kristy, Bill.  It had cracked last year and I had it done professionally by a company in Ft Lauderdale.  They used a clear silicone caulk which leaked a couple months later.

From what I’ve been reading, a glazing sealant by Dow (DC795) is what many professionals use, and what I’m going to use.  My hatch lenses are plexiglass, not acrylic.  I don’t know if DC795 works on acrylic or not.

For what it’s worth, there’s another product called DeBond that was designed to release 3M’s 5200 sealant.  I used it to get the hatch frame off of the deck and it made that job, and cleaning the old sealant off of the frame MUCH easier.

There is a specific silicone for bonding acrylic to aluminum. I forgot which one it was. Last time I called GE silicone division and they gave me the number it is not your regular silicone. Also when I rebuilt my last boat I spoke to the people at Atkins Hoyle. They recommend to prime the edge of the Plexiglas and the frame with toluene . It made the surfaces very sticky and the hatches never leaked. I also used under the genoa cars and the silicone stuck like crazy to it...  Be careful as it is very toxic.

Re: Is this the end of an era?

Ian Park
 

The 50 is indeed a lovely boat with many of the cherished AMEL features.
We toured it at the Southampton boat show and given a magical windfall would have been the boat we would have chosen to order.
From my own limited ocean cruising perspective, I have learnt to appreciate the attributes of a ketch. I also like the two bow lockers, the vast cockpit locker and the port side ‘Liferaft’ locker which are absent on the 50. Most importantly my 3 year old grandson is able to run all through my Santorin with handholds within easy grasp everywhere. Guess the SM is the same. The 50 needs some additional heavy weather poles down below for an older guy like me to feel secure.
However, a very nice boat and given the price of buying a new one I am very happy about the stability of the re sale value of my current AMEL.
They have to be competitive to survive and it immediately got Cruising Boat of the Year. So hats off to the AMEL team.
