Hi Eirc, we had to Heav to in the north Atlantic in 05. We used a short headsail and a short main with no issues. The winds were 40-60 kts for two days in seas as high as 35 feet. We laid off the wind and made very little head way but DID NOT slide back on the rudder.
Running down wind out of GIB in the same year we did drag about a 300 "U" shaped 3/4" line to keep us lined up with the seas that worked well too.

super maramu furler swivel

duncanmckenzie44
 

I have just had a problem wuith the swivel jamming when the sail was
unfurled and after dropping the sail which necessitated going up the
mast found that the swivel jams intermittently.
Does anyone have any previous experience on replacing a swivel and or
any diagrams or instructions on how to remove the swivel.
Thankyou


Re: {Disarmed} Re: [Amel] Autohelm ST 7000 linear unit drive

John and Anne Hollamby <annejohn@...>
 

The Autohelm linar drive unit has three parts which can wear and fail. The unit consists of an electric motor which is connected to the drive unit by a small toothed belt which turns the outer cage of an epicyclic gearbox when the unit is energised by the computer.The supply of power does two things,it starts the motor and it switches on an eletromagnet which locks the drive from the motor to the inner cage of the little gearbox which makes the drive move in or out. There are thus three parts that can wear out. The brushes of the motor which on my last boat lasted about 40,000 hours, The drive belt never seemed to wear but the gears were made of some sort of nylon or plastic and only lasted for about 10-15,000 hours.The plastic gears only cost about £12 in the mid nineties but could be replaced by a set of brass ones for £120. These should have a much longer service life.
Olivier assured me that the gears in my unit (2001) were brass and I have taken his word for it. However it seems quite probable that earlier installations may have had the plastic gears.
It is a very simple matter to remove the drive unit and open up the works to see if the gears need replacing and also to check the brushes.In my case the brushes were so worn that the carbon dust in the motor housing was shorting out .
Additionally spares for these parts should be carried after checking that you have been given the right ones because Autohelm changes suppliers from time to time and celebrates that fact by ceasing to stock parts for the old motor. In my case I was in Vanuatu when the brushes wore out and the Australian Agent sent me the wrong spares and Raymarine were very unhelpful.
I think that if I were to be going long distance again I would make sure I had spares for the linear drive and a spare course computer.

Good cruising, Anne and John, SM319

I dont think you read the post properly - the question was - should i replace the present linear drive with a new one - and keep the old one as a spare?

At least this is how i read the post - and i would say sounds like a good idea to me.

I am NOT convinced with your suggestion to mount the drive unit using a rubber mount though - that is going to introduce some free movement into what seems to me to be a big plus for the linear drive that is that it is directly coupled to the rudder stock and does not have the slop/free play of driving the rudder remotely using the steering mechanism - of course with the linear drive you have the additional advantage of in extremis being able to steer the boat should any part of the steering mechanism fail

previous post as below - bolding is mine

We plan to cross the atlantic next year. On our SM 227 we still run the

Autohelm ST 7000. I am thinking of buying a spare linear drive unit in

case of a problem during the passage. Since we are just the 2 of us on

the boat (my wife and myself)that might be worth to do.

One option I am thinking of, is to install a new lienar drive unit and

keep the old as spare part. Did anybody do this already and was it

difficult to install? According to Raymarine, the new unit should

perfectly work with the old Autohelm parts, e.g. the comptuer, compass

Keep both units and mount a switch near the rotary/chain drive drive

unit as Amel does. Run the one in the galley(the rotary)at night so

the noise will not be under your bed .Run the linear drive that will

be under the aft cabin berth during the day when the noise will not

anyone fly a conventional spinnaker with twin poles?

Kind of tempted to take advantage of our twin poles and fly a
conventional spinnaker downwind. Anyone try it? Be pretty easy since
there would be no need to jibe a pole.

Hi Horst,
 
I do not recall precisely if it was 2 or 4 amp/hr.
 
I know my "Link" meter showed a low consumption and, as i recollect, it was much less than my refrigeration systems in northern latitudes ( Gibraltar), and even twice less than my Neco autopilot when i made comparison trials.

Subject: Re: [Amel] Autohelm ST 7000 linear unit drive




In 2005 installed a completely separate Autohelm 7000 linear drive connected to the rudder post. The setup is completely in accordance with Autohelm instructions. No rubber dampers, but strengthening (epoxy fiber-glassing) of the base to which the drive is attached seemed mandatory as the type 2 linear drive can exert more than a 1000 lb of pressure... Consider the effect when the drive oscillates.

On my boat the operation is not noisy.

During my crossing from Las Palmas to Martinique, in February 2007, i only used the pilot directly connected to the rudder as it required little electrical energy and produced a rapid response considering the huge swells mixing with the waves coming from another direction. During the crossing, the two of us aboard only held the helm for a maximum of a few hours: when reducing sails or tacking and we could have used the autopilot for these purposes.

The other autopilot, my faithful NECO, is properly maintained, tested once in a while and is considered as a backup.

I do not agree with Mr Potter suggestion that daily switching from one pilot to the other would extend the life of both pilots. It might increase the total time before breakdown of one of them, but if a mechanical or electrical system has been in operation for a few hours, save for an exceptional situation, the temperature of the equipment is reached and maintained for the rest of the time. It does not require a rest or cooling down.
I would be more fearful of the thermal shock resulting from a daily switching on of the equipment, particularly its effect on the electronic circuitry. For long crossings, my autopilot is not shut down during manual steering, it is kept on standby.

I consider that a autopilot directly connected to the rudder post is a major security element.
Before the installation of the linear drive attached to the rudder post, while my boat was being crossed from the Caribbean to the Med, a breakdown of a steering cable required the use of the clumsy emergency tiller. Has anyone tried to use this tiller for a few days in a choppy sea?

As for spares: brushes for the electric motor are a must. The control unit is very sensitive to dampness, and i am considering having one as a spare, but i am not sure my first mate would not require that i may only get it if i depart from another of my precious spare part!

Nice to hear some real life experiences that support my view i also would support your view that regular switching on/off is a bad thing as failure will 99 times out of 100 occur at switch on time. Also a type 2 ram should not be getting into a thermal overload situation driving an Amel no matter what the sea state.

David

Re: [Amel] Yanmar 100HP engine oil change

After some discussions with specialists I confirm you my position
that, for my old and bad tmd22p, I prefer to put mineral oil instead
syntectic and this without regarding the price.

Subject: [Amel] Yanmar 100HP engine oil change


Hello, I have an SM200 with the Yanmar 4JH3 engine having about
2000HRS. To increase the oil change intervals, I have envisaged
the use
of Synthetic lubricant. Any experience in using synthetic oil?
