Re: Code D sail

 

Code D is a type of cut of a sail. The words "Code D" could be registered in France by anyone. Frenc registration has no impact on anyone outside of the EU.

Hello,
   Looking for advice on the disassembly and replacement of the rubber parts on what appears to be an original Vetus Type 6 Flexible coupling on the 35mm shaft of my1987  Marmu.  (No C drive)  If I will  need any specialty tools such as the collar wrench for the job please let me know.  

Thanks,

Re: Code D sail

Gerald Bassin
 

Hi James
I’ m not on the boat until december and do not have the exact data of the sail. Mine was made by the shop in Port Camargue  S France in 2015. 
Mr Ferrari might have those data...
It ‘s ca 130 sqm. 
Do you plan to have a bow sprit installed and where will the hallyard be (above or below the genoa hallyard)?
I had quite a strugle to make everything wirk without chaffing issues

Do you happen to know the dimensions of your sail and cloth weight?

Engine room blower- what I learned

Thomas Kleman
 

My 2 yr old mastervolt 100 amp charger failed; it's replacement (100 amp victron) did an ambient temp partial shutdown. My observation was that the 220 volt blower activated by the genset was very weak. I decided to replace it.

The blower that is failing is a Climma Compact EH blower. Tried new capacitor; still little air. At first wasn't sure why Amel chose this route and not a strong 220 volt industrial extractor fan. Now I know; 10 hrs of research yielded no suitable replacement in this area. Marine extractor blowers are all 12 or 24 volts. Nothing found that's 220.

I considered a 12 or 24 volt replacement like the other blowers in the engine room. My 100 amp victron charger has starter battery connections I could use. I almost never run the genset without the big charger on. Problem- starter battery port on victron puts out 4 amps; blower needs 5.3. Considered connection 12 amp blower to genset alternator circuit but feared same problem. Considered 24 volt blower to a separate switch in galley; maybe I'd forget to turn it on and I like stupid-proof solutions. I grudgingly came to the conclusion that Amel did it this way because it was the most elegant solution.

Called coastal climate control in Maryland. They had a slightly used blower with capacitor and steel mounting (exact match) for $130. Decided to go in that direction as my attempt to innovate yielded no better options.

If this saves one owner some time it's worth it.

Code D sail

James Cromie
 

To any Amel SM owner with a code D sail:

I am planning to get a code D sail to complement my downwind sailing kit.  

I am wondering what sail size, dimensions, and material (and cloth weight) other use for this sail or similar.  
Q sails in Turkey is offering a 130 sqm Code D made with PN 150 which has a weight of 1.75 sm-oz. 

Many thanks!

Re: St Vincent

James Cromie
 

Courtney - 
I just did the passage from Martinique to Bequia with my father and  mother, who has never done an open water crossing in a sail boat and she is 75. 

We did an afternoon crossing from Le Marin to Rodney Bay which was a very pleasant broad reach. I never checked in to St Lucia.  We pulled anchor at 0430 and sailed a broad reach to beam reach for the 72 miles to Bequia, arriving at 1600, just shy of 12 hrs.   The Anchorage is easy.  The last stretch between St Vincent and Bequia is fast - I overtook two catamarans coming in to Bequia whole cruising at 9+ knots.  

We had slightly brisker conditions than average, with winds at 25 knots and seas 5'-6', but that is more than the average.  

My mother didn't seem uncomfortable at all, and she is generally rather anxious!

I opted to not stop at St Vincent due to the reported higher theft rate.  My anxious mother was happy with kept going!

Fair winds.

Same situation in Wallilabu Bay.
For one night you can avoid making entry formalities to the country.

Re: St Vincent

Patrick McAneny
 

Courtney, I also have made that same trip Bill described many times ,including this past winter. Beware a boat boat may steer you to a fisherman's mooring in close to town, not where you want to be, and charge more than what the mooring cost in the bay Bill mentioned at the foot of the pitons. The ranger will collect $30 from you, you can trust those moorings and they have painters attached.  After many time in Bequia ,we just discovered that there is one of the best snorkeling/diving spots we have ever been , just inside/at the  pole marking the point as you enter Admiralty Bay ,many trenches and lots of fish. I wish I had known about it years ago,check it out.
Enjoy,

Courtney,

I've done St Lucia to Bequia at least 10 times. Take a Parks mooring ball at the small Bay south of Soufferie Bay. A Park Ranger will collect for the mooring. Depart 0500. Sail leeward of St Vincent to Bequia, arriving late afternoon before 1800. 

We took St Vincent off our list years ago because of all of the violent crimes against cruisers. You will find many people advise differently. They are in the 98% who have never been robbed or assaulted, or do not know anyone who has been affected.

Do you know S/V FAYAL owner?

Roque
 

To anyone who might know the owner of S/V FAYAL, a SM 2000, hull 258 (?) Port of Call La Rochelle, I’d like to be put in touch with him/her.

A week ago I saw FAYAL on a shipyard very close to where my boat is, in Santos, Brazil. I was told the owner is probably in Europe for a few months. Since I live here, maybe I could be of some assistance. I know how challenging it can be to have a boat in a foreign – and distant- country. If he/she wants, I can be reached either using this Forum or ediroque at gmail. Thank you.
