If you are talking about the stock ballooner halyard, it has a proper location to be tied off. On the side near the hauling plates close to the shroud.
As for the additional one as it has not been planed the only way is to tight it on the starboard ramp guard next to the shroud.

Erick,
i ordered kimberlite with a balooner halyard from amel.
they also provided a few rings on the anchor roller to tie off the
balooner. where do you tie off the balooner halyard when not in use?
thanks
eric

is of no challenge but requires a bit of preparation and planning

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Leaking pressure vessel, Bali Hai SM 319

Ian Shepherd <g4ljf@...>
 

Hi Anne & John,

you are not the only one to have a leak! I had one after just 3 months from new but the warranty replacement has lasted over two years with just a little rust on the outside around the neck. The tank is actually contains a bladder (I think) to smooth the water supply and to allow for expansion when the tank heats up. Why it has to be made of mild steel, is a mystery, but I believe you need to have one in the circuit to allow for expansion.

I know it's a messy job, but you might want to remove the immersion heater from the bottom of your hot water tank and check if the magnesium sacrificial anode is still there. It is held by two copper brackets to the copper calorifer tubing. I have replaced mine twice in two years, though to be fair, I did have an installed accessory electrolysis problem that probably speeded up the anode depletion. If you have signs of red coloured hot water, then you anode has gone. The red is dissolved copper! Magnesium anodes are hard to find off the plumbers shelf in this throw away age, but Mon Selo at Amel has plenty.

I hope that the new tank lasts a long time.

Best Wishes

Ian Shepherd SM2 299 "Crusader"

Leaking pressure vessel, Bali Hai SM 319

John and Anne on Bali Hai <hollamby@compuserve.com> <hollamby@...>
 

For many months we have had a whistling sound when running water but
it was not audible when the freshwater pump started. The cause was a
tiny leak from a hole in the pressure vessel located outboard of the
hot water cylinder. This is made of steel and connected to the system
through a brass elbow and copper pipe. The vessel was badly corroded
and a temporary repair made by grinding off the paint around the hole
and applying several coats of Araldite.
An identical pressure vessel was bought for 11 pounds sterling in
Malta from a shop supplying pumps etc for irrigation and we fitted it
with a plastic elbow between it and the brass/copper fittings.
The problem was,I assume,caused by electrolitic reaction.
There is a 2 litre stainless vessel on top of the freshwater pump and
the one behind the hot water calorifier is 5 litres. I suppose its
function is to cope with water expanding whilst it is being heated
although there was only one vessel in the water system on my last
boat,an Oyster.It was one of the few things that never gave trouble
in nine years of liveaboard cruising.
Does anyone know whether this second tank is actually needed and does
it have to be so big as stainless tanks are only available here in 2
or 20 litre capacities.

Hallo Euros-Genossen (oder seid Ihr wirklich englischsprachig?),

ich bin mit 3 anderen an einem Schiff wie dem Ihren beteiligt. Die
Aella ist noch etwas aelter. Was wirklich supergut funktioniert an
dem Schiff, ist gerade der Autopilot. Es ist ein "Bordcomputer" von
Autohelm (Typ ST 7000) - gekoppelt mit Sumlog, Anemometer und
Windlupe. Weil das gute Stueck in Griechenland ist, habe ich hier
keine weiteren Unterlagen zur Hand.

Der Antrieb selbst ist fest eingebaut in der Wand hinter dem Ruderrad
oberhalb der Spuele. Unter dem Salonboden sitzt ein Geber (Kompass),
der verbunden ist mit dem Elektromotor ueber der Spuele, der direkt
den Seilzug des Ruders antreibt. Im Armaturenbrett ist neben den
Windinstrumenten und dem Log ein Display angebracht, an dem auch die
Bedienungsknoepfe sitzen. Seitlich neben dem Ruderrad ist ein Knopf,
mit dem man den Antrieb einkuppelt und das Ruderrad arretiert.

Wovon absolut abzuraten ist, sind Geraete, die aussen unter dem
Ruderrad angebracht werden und selbiges ueber einen Riemen drehen.
Das ist wirklich Schrott und funktioniert so gut wie nie, weil der
Riemen sich dehnt und durchdreht oder aber reisst und weil das ganze
eigentlich immer unterdimensioniert ist und staendig im Weg ist.
