Re: Proper Pronunciation?

Craig Briggs
 

Hi David,

That would be "Ah-mel" with the "a" pronounced in the European fashion,
as in "father"; not the hard American "Ay-mel" (with a hard "a" as
in "say"). And the emphasis should be equal of each syllable, (which,
to the American ear, sounds like the last syllable is being stressed.)

Regardless of how you say it, it's still superb!

Cheers,
Craig - Santorin #68 "Sangaris"

Super Maramu sale and broker report

itacknjibe <itacknjibe@...>
 

It is with bittersweet feelings that we report the sale of our 2003
SM, Sogno di Mare in October. Our time aboard has been wonderful
beyond compare, but circumstances have forced us to make other plans.
We do, however, have the highest praise for our sales broker, Kim
Korman, at Florida Coast Marine, in Fort Pierce, FL. She is
knowledgeable and hard-working, and is a former live-aboard cruiser
herself. We recommend her wholeheartedly! Her website is
www.floridacoastmarine.com.
Thanks to the group for all of the good advice over the past years.

Winterising diesel engines

John and Anne on Bali Hai <annejohn@...>
 

We have downloaded advice contained in the latest issue of the
R.Y.A.Newsletter. and it is in the files section.
We have never removed the impellors during winter storage but if you do
not we recommend filling the sea water cooling system with fresh water
for this period in order to prevent barnacle growth in the sea water
system and especially in the impellor pump body as we think that the
baby barnacles are what damages the impellor on start up next season.
It is easily done.
Turn off the sea water cock under the seawater filter. Take the top
off the filter and stand over it with a fresh water hose. Have someone
start the engine and keep the filter filled to the top whilst the
engine flushes itself. Have someone stop the engine and start the
generator to flush that out before stopping the generator and turning
off the freshwater. If you are still going to be using the aircon and
heads put the top back on the filter and open the sea cock.
Obviously if you are not going to use the aircon and heads flush those
out whilst the filter is open. If the boat is hauled out there is no
reason why this procedure should not be followed on the hard.

Best wishes, Anne and John, SM319

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Sharki Headroom?

Serge Tremblay <laetitiaii@...>
 

David,
 
If you go to the Amel web page you will find the Sharki plans and specs under the "previous units" tab.
 
The plans do not show specific measurements, but there is a proportion reference, in meters, under one of th plans. From this reference you can approximate most measurements.

Ok, one more opinion :-)
We had 5 years using one application of 2 coats of Interlux Micron 33
with excellent results; maybe it's available outside the USA as tin is
the 'active' ingredient and isn't allowed anymore on recreational
marine vessels. We applied Micron 66 ten months ago with great results
so far. Both are soft, or ablative, anti-fouling bottom paints.
