Hi All, my swivel arms/Horns for the Genoa furler are all bent up, I don't have a problem getting new ones made up so my question is does anyone know where to get the rubber covers that go on the stainless rods.

You guys must be hitting the Amstel beer a bit to hard...

The surveyor is Paul Anstey and he has surveyed well more than 350 Amel boats for my clients over a 37 year period. He is not Olivier. He is very capable and fair minded.

I'd recommend him.

Re: Chain counter display

James,
I have a Pochon counter too which does not work but it seems to have a working LCD screen.  Is there a chance I could have your old counter to test if I can make a working unit from both units.  It's a long shot but if it works I would be happy to compensate you for the part.

If it does not I am very interested in learning how you installed your new counter.

Dear all

I am glad to inform that I am an Amel owner. Again.

I know many of you have bought two (or three!) “Amels”, usually “moving up”. I went sideways! Maybe it is a first.  I used to own the Amel 54 #110, sold in 2014. Now I bought Attika, AMEL 54 #117, here in Brazil, my hometown.

I never really left this Forum after I sold my former 54, since it is always a pleasure to see so much camaraderie and expertise shared. So congrats to all that keep the ball rolling. A special thanks to Jose Luis, who recently “resigned” from his position. And a welcome to Bill, who will certainly do a great job (besides his so generous contributions).

As usual, there is some work, upgrades and fixing to do aboard Attika. I am counting on your sage advice and opinions.

And if you ever need anything from Brazil, please let me know.

Sincerely


Roque (Edison Roque)

After a while,  a competent shop in Marmaris soldered the broken attachment point on the old one, and Onan admitted the part I was sold is not compatible with my Onan 7MDKAL.

That is where I bought the seal.  It was designed for the outside seal on an automobile side window.  I’m guessing that they have it but under a different number now.

Hi Kent,

 

I looked at the website of JC Whitney's and the items number nor the items name was found.

 

Are you sure about this company selling the gasket that fits the companion way?

Here’s what I found a few years ago, it works great.

 

Here's the gasket material I found that works fine.  It's enough to do two replacements.

My first replacement in 2010 has dried out and needs replacement again after 5 years.

Purchased at JCWhitney.com

Belt Weatherstripping

Item No. 819751

 

Cost including shipping in 2010 was $28 US.

 

No bending required, just holes drilled and cut to length.

 

Since I put spar urethane on the companionway door, I’ve had no black rubber coming off on the door as it slides up and down.

Hi Mike, I'm about to purchase this seal from Rockauto but have a few questions first.

Do you have any material left?

It looks like the metal piece is raised above the level of the fixed piece of wood that is on the outside of the door. Did you ever bend that down flush or have you left it raised, i tend to put my foot on the door sometimes.

I wish i had looked at it while at the rendezvous

Hi Courtney,

We will be away from TouRai over The holidays and just booked a slip at Nanny Cay for the month on the recommendation of a long time VI cruiser. We had initially asked him for his recommendation in St Thomas as we will be flying in and out of there, and staying at Nanny on Tortola (BVI)and taking the ferry was his clear preference. I think the quote we got for the month was around 1600. I’ll confirm that after I send this. 

All the best,
Steve
