Seals for main outhaul and furler gear boxes

rapp.jeffrey <rapp.jeffrey@...>
 

My main outhaul and furler gearboxes are leaking and need to be
replaced. I am told by Ray Eaton that the seals may be available in
the US, where I am currently visiting. I own SM 2000 378. Does anyone
know the specifics of the seals?
Thanks in advance.

Mike, I could have walked over to your boat last week, there was solid ice
between our boats. Shenanigans is directly across in Georgetown.We are leaving
tomorrow to spend a couple weeks on our other boat in the BVI.,not going to
miss the cold.I got a quote from Amel for a gearbox it was 524.00 Euro plus
shipping ,which is about $100.00 US ,I don't think if its shipped to U.S. you
pay Vat.,so it might be a wash .I agree that's a lot of money for a small
gearbox. Thanks for your offer though and have a good trip.

Pat,

After pulling the shafts, the main furling and outhaul gear boxes are
identical. I am curious if the jib furling gearbox is the same as
well in regards to stocking a spare.

Anyway, still not resolved on obtaining the replacements I need. The
main furler gear teeth were almost completely worn away and the
outhaul gears looked new. Not surprising considering the relative
load on each. My plan is to replace both, keeping the outhaul gearbox
as the spare after rebuilding.

Our local Bonfiglioli rep in Hatfield, PA has not been able to nail
down the part number for the gearbox even after many pictures and the
numbers from the pre 1998 model being sent to Italy. He also projects
a 16-20 week shipping time.

I will be in northern Spain in early March, and without confirmation
of avaialability and reasonable shipping time from Bonfiglioli, will
head up to La Rochelle and pick up what I need directly from Amel.
They want 540 euro each, pluse 17.5% VAT. Seems like a lot for what
this is. It would be nice to at least find out what they would cost
direct from Bonfiglioli.

So if you would like me to pick one up for you, just let me know. Had
a good night's sleep on Aletes last night resting in the icy
Sassafras and wondered where Shenanagans was.

Mike, My gearbox has Bonifiglioli stamped on the side, so they are

gearbox I would
probably describe as round.Your boat is several years newer, I
don't know if
perhaps they are different or we are just describing them
differently. Since
UPS lost my gearbox I've done nothing on my end. It sounds as
though you are
on the same tack with your Hatfield rep so I will wait and see
what you come
up with. I am not sure, is the outhaul and mainsail furler
gearbox's identical
as far as shaft sizes ?Are they interchangeable? I'll send you a
photo of
my old furler gearbox, let me know if it appears different from
yours. Thanks

I thought we were in luck when I found a Bonfiglioli distributor
within
a half hour drive from home in Hatfield, PA. And with damage to
one
bearing, the seals, the worm gear itself, and the housing fairly
corroded, I figured time to replace the whole thing rather than
rebuild. With the support of Robin Cooter's part numbers and
digital
picturs of the one we're working on, the local rep cannot make
sense of
Robin's numbers and has not been able to find a Bonfiglioli
gearbox
that anyone in the US recognizes as similar to the pictures. They
expect it will be a week or two until Italy looks at the
information
and determines if indeed it is a Bonfiglioli and if they indeed
still
carry them.

Has anyone a part number on the square shaped gearboxes used on
the SM
and are they indeed Bonfiglioli (or other) in manufacture? US
Source?

Pat, how has your gearbox story developed?

Re: outhaul and main furling gear box

Mike Ondra
 

Gary, Following up on your last post on this subject. Maud at Amel
has confirmed that the square gearbox on the SM2000 was/is made by
Bonfiglioli. I have been trying for the past month trough our local
Bonfiglioli rep to determine if I can obtain one directly at a
significantly better price than through Amel. The two I have taken
off the boat have no evidence of part numbers (all paint is gone) and
even after sending them detailed photographs they have not identified
the part. If indeed you have part numbers, that may help.

Thanks, Mike

Mike:

Regarding your post where you asked: " Has anyone a part
number on the square shaped gearboxes?"

Recently I purchased from Amel a new gearbox as a spare. It
came with a data plate that indicated the manufacturer and
the part number and serial number.

I won't be on my boat until Jan 28th, but I will post on this site
the particulars related to that new gearbox as soon as I am on
the boat.

Re: LED light bulbs

ladyannila <kanalmamman@...>
 

Ofcorse it matters. It is depending on what electrical system you
have on the boat. On our SuperMaramu built 1998 we have 3 electrical
systems, 12, 24 and 220 Volt. And the lamps is on the 24 volt system.

overhaul of furler gearbox

Hajé Weisfelt
 

On sharki 104 Charmed II the electric furler was mounted upside down
by the broker. For six years it stood still, while filled with water.

The electric engine was revised in november and now the gearbox is in
the workshop.
The BABO in the Hague (Netherlands) have found out all the necessary
details and parts you need.

I'll get pictures of the detailed overhaul (see photo's Charmed II).

But there is one little problem

The bearing ring that locks the brass gear ring is it mounted pressed
or screwed. We cannot see that!!

Cheers, Hajé


Only an Amel will do. Game Set Match. Crew Available

ericmeury <ericmeury@...>
 

hello all.

I'm am new to the board and actually just learned about Amel in
November of 2008 when i had the opportunity to tour Frank's SM - named
Mona Rae.

Needless to say i instantly fell in love. What a simple perfect
design. Honestly, i have been looking for a boat that was a center
cockpit, nice mech. access, aft cabin, few steps into the cabin as well
as a swim step for my 80lbs dogs. (i know dogs on boats?) Everything
seems simple on the boat and it just feels right. For me at least i
function is beautiful.

I'm a few years away from being able to purchase another boat. I used
to own a 1965 choey lee- it certainly was beautiful but i worked on the
boat more than i sailed it.

I would love - i mean absolutly love the opportunity to help crew on
any passages any amel owner, any where is about to undertake this
year.

As i said before, i used to own a cheoy lee. As far as off shore
experience i helped deliver a hylas 70 from Puerto Rico to Baltimore
and then i sailed from Newport RI to Bermuda then to St Martin.

I know this a group for owners, and i have looked on Sail Net and I am
a member of Hank Schmidts OPO program but honestly i would rather spend
those weeks that i can commit to something sailing on an Amel.

I probably 5-10 years away from being able to cruise full time
depending on a couple of projects and i really want to get to know the
Amel more before i purchase the boat.

Thanks in advance for the opportunity and i hope to be sailing on an
Amel soon.

Eric J. Meury


Re: [Amel] Trinidad hullouts

S/Y MELMAR Y - marc <newsgroup@...>
 

hi there

we're back again in chaguaramas. we had our boat for aprx. 18mts at power boats. no complaints at all. they installed a dehumidifier even in our absence. all staff is friendly and forthcoming. the yard has upgraded security by guards walking around and is in general quite popular (also in counting boats on the hard during this time, rather low season).
peaks (and also coral cove) has a special secured area where no-one is allowed to be in and work on the boat.
all kind of works can be done in all yards from almost anyone (if accepted by the management) - ask around (e.g. on the net every morning on CH68 at 8am) or have a look in the boater's directory, once you're here. there are really plenty possibilities.

cheers,

Hi, we also have an AIS receive only that works very well. We do use the small screen unit from NASA which granted is small and with not much detail however it works very well and is a great help especially when we are in a traffic area in the rain or rough weather we can still see that big ship. A PC would work however I don't like to use/have on my PC all the time as it does draw a lot of juice one and two the salt air will get to it sooner or later... The AIS is wired to the GPS and by way of a spliter to the VHF which is an Icom digital with fog horn/hailer and a second mike at the steering station.
I use a Furuno chart plotter and GPS with a repeater at the steering station. We run C-Map chart as i find that over the years they have proven to be accurate and up to date. Keep in mind that "ALL" those charts are scanned from paper charts. The C-Map software puts more detail on the screen such as the depth sounds in a closer formate then many of the other suppliers.
As for the single side band SSB get one that has USB port on it and a Pactor III modem to allow for use of Air Mail, iScribe, Weather Net or Sailmail that way you can pull down weather and emails from anyplace. We find that the Icom 802 and the Pactor III works very well. We also like the support we get from Global Marine Net works from whom we bought the Pactor and Oeans software.
Good luck

Kent,



I have never felt the need for an AIS transmitter, but this
would probably

depend on where you are sailing. I find that big ships are
much better

about answering channel 16 when one is able to hail them by
name.



AIS receivers must have some form of display. A laptop
provides a much

bigger display than most of the tiny screens that come with
reasonably

priced AIS units. I have set my computer display so that
any ship that

will pass closer than one mile shows in a bright red color.




I suggest that you look at the Sailmail web site. It has
lots of

information about SSBs, and connections to computers, and
etc.



Good luck with the multiple connections. I have finally
learned to

carefully label every connection once I get it working. It
all works with

XP. I would not want to try Vista.



Good sailing,



Miles (s/y LADYBUG, sm216)

Maxsea has the ability to layer information. We are able to see planned
route, course made, weather and AIS all of which are superimposed on the
CMap Chart. We chose not to superimpose radar; however, because of the
connections we have made between the radar, course computer & GPS, we
can see Maxsea waypoints on the radar and we can see the lat/lon of the
radar cursor as well as TTT (time to target) on the radar.

We connected the Raymarine 7001+ to the NMEA 0183 multiplexer for
2reasons:

1. We can read depth in feet, COG, SOG and other information on the
Head unit
2. We can use the windvane mode on the autopilot

4154 Perkins - Maramu - Temperature sensors

Alejandro Paquin
 

We have a Perkins 4154 engine on our 1981 Maramu. Ther seems to be two
temperature sensors at the top of the engine near the thermostat. One
is threaded right on the engine block. The second one in is on a T
connection right above it (hoses going to the fresh water heater).
Does anyone know what the finction of these are? I guess the one on
the engine block goes to the temperature gauge on the engine panel in
the cockpit and the second one is the temperature alarm actuator? The
second on has a 1/2 diameter thread. Does any one know where I can buy
this part new?

purchase. Might want to start with the USCG warning about the Class B
AIS transponders that are popular because these transponders are less
expensive. You likely will find that the transponder signal is not
being received by as many ships as you might initially assume.

I really recommend you to get an AIS sender. Your visibility is
guaranteed wich it's not with a radar. If you are sailing in an
archipelag (or river/canal) you will be visible even if you are
behind a high island or similar. On the radar you are invisible.

Also, according to friends out sailing on the big waters, the
commercial ship looks more for an AIS mark than a smal "bip" on the
radar.
So if you want to feel secure, get an AIS sender.

When sailing in coastal areas, your dear ones at home can follow you
on their computer using some public AIS site.

Thanks, Miles,
That sounds like a very comprehensive setup you have. I'm guessing
I'm
going to have to spend some serious money to get equipped like I'd
like
to be.

I have an SSB and (I think) AIS receiving VHS, do you think it
worth
the money to get AIS transmitter, too? I have 36mile Furano radar
and
the GPS unit originally installed by Amel. Also will purchase hand
held backup GPS x 2.

Being only partially computer literate, I'll need some help with
all
the necessary connectors and compatibility issues. Anyone have
suggestions for someone to help with this in Galveston area?

Thanks to all again.
