Question for the group.  What is the size of the Reckman EF90 Genoa electric furler in the AMEL 55? I have been told it would be either a 2 or a 3, but which one?

I ordered from Amel, I haven’t received it yet, but Maud had several kinds.  I described what was originally installed and she said she’d send what appears to be the same.  It’s a D with all the walls the same, about 5mm thick all the way.  She didn’t know anything about the cylindrical piece that was described as placed into the D seals at the corners, and said they don’t have anything like that.

 

When I get it, I’ll take some pics and try to describe the material and compressibility.

Danny I am sure A represents what Amel installed, but since apparently all manufacturers have cheapened the foam by lowering the density. This is the reason that I believe I would replace it with B profile. 

 

That said, I will wait for a final judgement until after Kent has talked to the manufacturer.

 

Kent, you should ask: Is B better than A in situations where the compression will be greater than 25%.

There are a number of insertion rubbers available made of different rubbers.

What type did you use? What thickness did you use for the diaphragm and the flapper valves?

Hi, in the absence of a kit to hand  I made copies of the flap valves out of thick insertion rubber. This a fibre reinforced rubber sheet. I found the replacements tended to take a curve and not seal well. I got about 5 years out of the ones I made. I have just installed a new diaphragm I made out of a suitable thickness insertion rubber sheet. I punched the centre hole, put it on the shaft, closed the pump on to it, held it there while I drilled the holes. Then bolted it up and trimmed around to outer size. Working well. I made a second while I was at it to put in spares. I have been carrying the insertion rubber sheet as spare for some years. If I get premature failure (which I doubt) Ill buy the replacement 

I could have bought one first up  but I enjoy the process.

the previous owner had the original machine removed due to unreliability I believe after 4 years of use

Cleaning your Amel

Joerg Esdorn
 

i received the attached from Amel.  I cannot overstate how great the Wichinox stainless cleaner works - I’ve tried most every product on the market and this one is So MUCH easier because it combines a chemical „passivating“ action with the Polishing.  I’m lacking long term experience with it, though.  I also like the Gel Gloss cleaner/wax - very easy to use on interior plastic surfaces and stainless.  I hope this helps.

24v alternator deflection idler pulley

ngtnewington Newington
 

Hello fellow Amel owners with this set up on the big 175A 24v alternator mounted on the aft end of the engine. I am in the UK and Amelia is in Kefalonia. I want to replace the two deflector idler pulleys shown in the photo as they roll slightly rough. I need to know the dimensions; length, height and also the diameter of the mounting bolt. The really accurate measurement needed is the bolt diameter, the other is about 70mm long and say 50mm high.
Does anyone with this set up know or could measure for me??

PS the belts shown in this photo are not correct, they are 16.8mm X 13mm and slightly too v’d. Also I have found that the toothed belts are not happy deflecting as above and that the correct ones are Gates 6952 or  Optibelt 5L 520 17mm X 9.5mm and outside length of 1321mm with kevlar cord. 

Kind regards

Re: Alternator regulation Amel 54

Maybe your Alpha Pro manual can throw light into the subject?

We have an Alpha Pro 2 installed since 2013.  Its start time is user-programmable from 0 to 60 seconds.  You can also set it so it does not start charging at low RPM.  Were these not options on Alpha Pro 1?  If these software options were not available, it would make sense for Pochon or for Amel to have done something via hardware.  

Our installation, which was not done by Amel, includes one of those little black cubes you have, but the schematic is not readable without some disassembly, so I am not sure what it does.

With regard to

the sensing wire was loose at the alternator

Yes, this is a risk.  One way to reduce the risk is to have a MasterShunt in the battery box.  This is what we did.

When a MasterShunt is present on the MasterBus, the Alpha Pro regulator looks to get its battery charge info from the MasterShunt.  Since the MasterShunt is installed  in a vibration-free zone, and adjacent to the batteries, the chances of a damaged or loose wire are minimal.

A secondary way I manage this risk is by feeding a small B&G chart plotter we have on deck with 24V.  This Zeus2 chart plotter is set to display its VSUPPLY on its databar at all times.  After several years cruising, I've gotten quite used to peeking at that little square from time to time for the current voltage.

A tertiary way is to have a voltage monitor on at all times (an EasyView 5, in our case).  We have it highly visible from the companionway; it never sleeps.

We've never yet had an over-voltage event, so those cautions look unnecessary.  May it be so always!

Cheers,

Re: Aqua Signal Series 44 LED port/starboard bow nav lights

Ryan Meador
 

Tom,

The description on the website is wrong.  The Series 44 is the LED successor to the Series 40, and almost exactly the same size and shape.  It is side-mount.  I chose it specifically because it is almost the same, though as I mentioned above, the mounting wasn't quite as easy as I was led to believe.  Still, it was a minor project as boat projects go.

Dan,
I replaced all 3 of ours.  Of the old ones, the starboard was non-functional (likely wiring issue caused by Amel Martinique...), the port worked but the bulb was held in only by tape, and the stern's lens had crazed so it was quite dim.  They all needed it.  I've been quite happy with the new ones this summer.

Thanks Ryan, 

I'll prepare to replace the working as well. No issues yet, but is getting of the age.  

I had the same thoughts about replacing with the white.  

Here is the exact description of the Series 44 from the Aqua Signal site:

"Series 44 LED Navigation Light – It will keep you safe!
Our new maintenance free LED navigation light is the
perfect choice for recreational boats and vessels <50m.
The modern and unique design combined with LED
optics and high quality electronics guarantees safety
at sea in all weather conditions. Designed for fashion,
developed for heavy duty work.

Housing

Polycarbonate, black or white,
seawater resistant, UV-resistant,
non-corrosive and non-magnetic,
impact and shock resistant. Same
footprint and fixing points like S40,
S41 and S43."

It looks good, but it is nice to have confirmation from someone who has actually installed it on the same boat.  Which of course is the value of this Amel owners group. Sharing real life experience.

Hi Dan,

I replaced the wiring from the lights, through the bow pulpit, all the way back to the port deck locker.  This let me get the length of the wire exactly correct.  I was having wiring issues anyways.

The routing of the wire inside the light housing took a little thought, but wasn't difficult.  I ended up bringing it in through the cut-out at the bottom of the housing.  The supplied connectors are very large, but designed to fit snugly inside the housing.  Sliding the two halves of the rubber boot together took a few tries before it was overlapped to my satisfaction.  I think it will be quite waterproof and I don't anticipate ever needing to take it apart for the life of the light -- that's the joy of LEDs.

One of the mounting screw holes that matched the existing light fixtures was covered by the electronics module inside the housing, so I had to carefully remove it, secure the nuts on the back with tape, mount the housing, reinstall the electronics, and then pull the tape out.  It sounds more complicated than it was.

I went with the white fixtures, primarily because I thought they'd look better on the boat and are more unique.  They may also stay cooler in the sun which should prolong the lifespan of the electronics inside.

No issues with the wiring?  One of buyer commented on the wiring connections that came with the package.

Also, did you go with the black or white fixtures?

I recently made the change to the series 44.  The mounting plate is not exactly the same -- you can't use the neat little slide on/off bracket.  Two of the screw holes do line up, though.  I drilled a third one for extra security, and I put cap nuts on the inside (the side facing the genoa furler) so nothing gets snagged on them.  It was a pretty quick and painless upgrade, once I had the right parts:

M4 screws, 16mm long, hex drive (3 per light)
washers for M4, 4.3mm ID, 9mm OD (I think 6 per light)
M4 cap nuts (3 per light)

All in 316 stainless, of course.  I sourced them from McMaster.

Dan,

 

I recently replaced the bulbs on my AS 40 with a colored LEDs. Didn't want to deal with retrofitting the mount.

https://store.marinebeam.com/aqua-signal-bi-color-led-replacement-bulb/

The housing leaked probably due to some submarining when we were sailing upwind in 45 knots, so I replaced the bulb, sealed it up and pray daily that it stays sealed. :)
