Hi Miles,

 The BEP one looks even closer to the original. They have a UK distributor. I might get a couple to try.
 Thanks!

Hi Ian 
Does yours look like this
If so mine has a 20mm ID which is the critical dimension I think along with height 

My cover and it’s spare are now cracked so I have also been hunting for the spare and struggling. I have emailed Aquafax in the uk as they apparently supply BEP marine parts but I’m not actually 100% it’s the same piece as the specs are not clear on the BEP website. 
Looks like the vital parts covers are well worth a go!

All the best

Just measured mine. I believe the Lorraine’s on the Santorin is the same size albeit a 12v version. My rubber caps are 30mm across the base and 20mm high.

Hi Paul,

In addition to the Actisense device, you can also check the Simrad AT10 for two way communication 0183 - 2000, a little less expensive (at least in Europe). I just bought it (with an additional Simnet - 2000 cable) and will install it on my next visit to our boat. This was recommended by Jose, from s/v Ipanema, and is working well for him.

Best,

Guillaume

Paul,

At this point our boat is ALMOST fully switched over to NMEA2000. But like you, our  backup autopilot is an older model that only speaks NMEA0183. 

We use an Actisense NGW-1 to convert the data on the NMEA2000 bus to a format compatible with NMEA0183. It translates the data on the new bus for our computer, and our old autopilot. It has worked well for us.

Hello Paul,

We have an ACP 400 with Lecombe & Schmidt hydraulic drive; we are very pleased as it is much smoother and steers the boat well through the a single P70 control.(I have a spare P70 if needed). A 3 way switch allows selection of Hyd/Elec or off.

All functions are avail through the P70 for both units.

Re: Eumania dishwasher water inlet solenoid

Mark Erdos
 

If anyone ever finds a drop in replacement for the Eumenia dishwasher, please post it.

 

I have repaired ours so many times. I am just waiting for the sad day when it finally goes to the appliance happy place in the sky. In the mean time we love having a dishwasher. It is perfect to run the dishes when the genset is fired up to do the evening charge on the batteries and running the AC to cool down the boat before going to bed.

 

I would also be curious if anyone has purchase a regular dishwasher, stripping out all the electronics and components and using them to build basically a new dishwasher in the Eumenia shell.

 

 

With best regards,

 

Mark

[Edited Message Follows]

I just discovered a leak coming from the corroded water inlet solenoid at the base of the Eumenia dishwasher. By looking online I think I have found a replacement part on eBay from Calder Catering Parts. 

SV40 straight universal water inlet solenoid 230V 3/4” BSP to 2x 11.5 mm

When it arrives I will let you know if/how it fits.

Lenses for the foredeck are "blue" , I believe, and it must be that Amel somehow made the forward cabin and forward head lenses seimi-opaque as I don't see that Goiot offers that option.  Any thoughts on that process?

Goiot offers both blue and gray lenses.  I am virtually certain that the saloon hatch lenses is blue, but am uncertain about the color of the aft cabin hatch lenses color.   Any thoughts and information would be appreciated.

Thanks Kent, and everyone else that replied with data and knowledge on this subject:

I have collated the following data from the RigRite dot com web site and the Goiot-Systems dot com web sites:  Please chime-in if something doesn't fit with what you are seeing on your boat (I am off the boat for a month or so, so will depend on you all to confirm the dimensions etc.)

Forward Cabin and Saloon Hatches:   Goiot Tradition Model (group as Goiot calls them)  Size 50.50, Code 121155, weight 8.0 kg, cutout dimension 500 x 500 mm, overall dimension 582 x 554 mm,  Acrylic thickness 10 mm, lid height 46 mm, lens size 506 x 506 mm.  RigRite Part numbers: Blue tinted Lens part number Goi 101176,  Fly screen Goi 93468, Gasket Goi HT-GS.

Forward Head Hatch: Goiot Tradition Model,  Size 50.37, Code 121154, weight 6.7 kg, cutout dimension 500 x 370 mm, overall dimension 554 x 451 mm,  Acrylic thickness 10 mm, lid height 46 mm, lens size 506 x 376 mm.   RigRite Part numbers: Blue tinted Lens part number Goi 101175,  Fly screen Goi 93464, Gasket Goi HT-GS.

Aft Cabin Hatch: Goiot Cristal Model,  Size T-50 size, Model 49.36, Code 115753, Overall dimension 559 x 452 mm, height 28 mm.  Acrylic thickness 10 mm.  Lens size is 478 x 348 mm.   RigRite Part numbers: Blue tinted Lens part number is Goi100920, Fly screen is Goi 101651X, Gasket Goi HC-GL.

Thanks for all the help and expertise.  Per Joel's and Kent's suggestion I think I will just use an orbital sander to to opacify the lenses on the forward two hatches as opposed to applying a film.

Rubber caps for Lofrans switches

ianjenkins1946 <ianjudyjenkins@hotmail.com>
 

Hi All,

 A while back some of us were looking to replace the rubber caps on the switches that Amel had put on top of the Lofrans winches--without having to spend 14 Euros each for a new switch.

 I may have found a source of equivalent caps   www.vital-parts.co.uk   a UK supplier of rubber and PVC caps. About £1 each !

 We are in London,  not on board, so I can only guess at the correct dimensions--25mm diameter and 25mm height ? Is there anyone on board who can tell me ? Otherwise I will buy some and experiment.
