Re: AMEL 54 watertank compartments - access to clean

Annsofie & Jonas Svanberg
 

Hi Ruedi
There is no need to clean the water tank if you keep it filled if you leave the boat for the winter.
The water will not go bad for such a short time, and keeping it filled makes it more or less impossible for algaes to grove.

We bought our SM 2006 and have only kleened the tank once, and that was when just had bought the boat since the previous owner had left the boat with half empty tanks.

Dear Amel Group, hi Stefan

 

After having a wonderful season we are now cleaning and make WASABI ready for the winter. 

I have followed the tread about cleaning the water tank compartments last summer and I’m curious if you where successful opening all the 4 compartment access. 


Olivier is right there are 4 access points on the AMEL-54. From aft to bow: 1. Under the Galley door opening Fridge 2. Under the Galley floor 3. Under the Galley top load Freezer 4. Under the Salon Seat (2nd Freezer).

The 2 in the aft (Fridge and Galley floor) are easy to access, but the other 2 are nearly impossible unless dismantle the Galley-Freezer/Saloon seating completely.


Therefore I’m searching for the best way of cleaning without using Chlorine. I tried to get Aquasafe from Microlene which Alan Leslie recommended but I can’t get it in Europe.  https://www.microlene.com.au/products/acquasafe-liquid-disinfectant

Any more experience with cleaning and disinfection? Maybe there are more options?

 

Thanks and best regards

Ruedi

Kirstin just completed our new bimini- she kept the frame bars the same length but moved the forward bar 4 inches higher in the channel. The result is a zip down window (40 gauge stratoglass) above the dodger that allows airflow to both sides of the cockpit, and great forward standing visibility. It's made of Sunbrella SeaMark, a two ply leakproof fabric.

Hi J-P,

I noticed that your poles are quite different to ours...not surprising SM007 cf SM437
Ours, as probably SM422 are quite a lot bigger in diamtre and the end fittings are quite different.
We had also this probleme with corrosion of the Al caste end. We managed to get it out and grind it down to fit the tube, cleaned out the tube end, coated it with lanocote before reassembling, and it has been fine ever since.

Re: Windshield and Port Window Update

Paul Dowd and Sharon Brown
 

Hi Jer,

 

I have had an unfortunate mishap resulting in my starboard wind shield being neatly broken in two. So I am interested in getting a replacement, which Amel do not have. One possible complication is that the shields are slightly tinted, so would you know if your supplier would be able to do that? And if so, I would have no idea of how to gauge how much they are tinted. I guess if the price is not too much I could just replace both. Also, they seem to have a very slight curve, which may or may not be a factor. I guess I could check how much by removing it.

 

Cheers,

Paul

Re: Folding Prop

Ian Park
 

Arnold
I have no experience with an auto prop. I don’t know if it folds up if you leave the throttle lever in neutral.

For the prop shaft alternator to work you must:
Switch off the engine and take out the ignition key
Put the gear lever in neutral
(You should hear the prop shaft turning quite fast)
Put the other key attached to the ignition key in the prop shaft lock (on the 12v panel above the galley) and turn it on
The prop shaft revolutions slow down and a green light comes on to show the alternator is charging
( both keys are on a welded key ring so you cannot have the engine running with the prop shaft alternator)

To turn off:
Put the gear lever in REVERSE, never in forward.
(This stops the prop alternator and the green light goes out)
Remove keys
Put gear lever in neutral
Start engine again.

As I say, I have no experience of the autoprop so you may need advice from SM owners.
I am guessing your boat originally had a fixed propellor and this was changed. The previous owner probably wanted to leave the original equipment on the boat.

Hi Everybody,

we just registered a few days ago with the Amel Owners Group and thought its no a bad idea to introduce our self.  

Michaela & myself (Volker) just bought a Amel Santorin from 1990 (SN 027). The boat is currently in Borneo/Malaysia, however we will bring her back to Langkawi/Malaysia soon.

We are long term expats in Malaysia. Our previous boat, a Hans Christian 43, was sold a couple of years ago because work commitment was too high, however now time is "ours" and we plan to explore the Andaman Sea and in future most likely a "bit" further as well with our Amel.

We took the chance to rename the boat, she is now called "Aquamarine"

I started to read with much interest the mails from the group and enjoy the information shared.

Since our Amel is not quite new, I am sure we will have as well "this & that" to share or to ask the group about some advice.

Re: Maramu bonding question

James Alton
 

Miles,

Viewed from the engine room, on my Maramu there is a copper strip that starts at the forward engine room bulkhead that runs aft down the inside of the Port engine stringer and then athwartships across to the stb. engine stringer running on the partial bulkhead forming the aft end of the grey water sump/bilge. My bonding strap was originally connected to the strip running athwartships on the sub. side. I moved the bonding strap connection to the inside of the Port engine stringer so as to orient the heavier copper plate so that it ran along the side of the hull which prevents blocking the drainage coming into the bilge from aft but functionally this works the same at the original setup. I have not extensively inventoried all items attached to the bonding system but the engine block, thruhulls, rudder, stuffing box, pretty much all of the underwater metals. The idea of bonding is to connect all of these metal bits to a sacrificial zinc that is less noble than the rest of the connected metals to protect the connected metals. One thing to keep in mind is that in a bonded boat, it is especially important to insure that your sacrificial anodes are always in good shape since each connected component will have a different position on the galvanic scale the the least noble pc. is going to corrode faster than if it was not connected to any other metals.

Thanks to this forum for excellent tips and tricks on this project so far.

In terms of the wider problem though. . .

On my boat I can’t really tell where/how the bonding cable used to run aft from the engine room to a rudder / anode connectio

so a few questions that would be amazing for this groups insight on:


What items are bonded ?
I assume: keel bolt and rudder are originally bonded. Would be grateful to hear if other items were also originally bonded. Through hulls for example ?

Also I’m a bit confused about the original cable run. Bonding vs. The Grounding plate for ssb

Be great to know how your bonding cables run from the engine room / keel bolt, aft to the rudder aft.


On the transom there is a copper strip /plate that runs down from the aft interior transom locker. I presume this is to do with the ssb ground not bonding ?

Many thanks in advance

Hi guys , Hi owners, Hi Thierry and Maud,

I particularly want to write these lines to give the right meaning back to the discussion.  
I will apologize if I am not short, but I humbly believe that I can interpret the thoughts of many owners and friends. 
The ferment that has developed around the theme of ultraflex cables in my opinion is extremely positive and necessary. 
When I bought Vagabundo I was not aware of the existence of this forum, but thanks amel yacht owners forum and thanks Olivier, over the years I managed my boat to back to the right level of maintenance, so that it could finally be a blue Water Cruise again. 
Many owners entrust their dreams and lives to the boats built and designed by Henri AMEL and thanks to the construction quality of the AMEL shipyard, we all sail safely with our boats.
But there is a particularly important aspect that must never be underestimated and it is the age and the obsolescence of a lot of equipments installed on our boats.
There is no anxiety, no fear in this.  
If there were anxiety and fear, none of us would take the sea and only a crowds would leave the land entrusting their lives to a boat that he considers unsafe.
But if there is one thing I learned during my life spent at sea is that the attention to small details often makes the difference between a happy ending and a misfortune.  
Precisely this attention (that is often found in the posts and discussions of this forum that I call the big family AMEL) has given the AMEL boats in the world and on the used market a great reputation.
I am therefore sure that the food for thought that will arise in this group will be an inexhaustible source of information and advice for amel itself so that over the years more safe and reliable boats can be produced like  in the past. 
At the same time it is inevitable to recognize the fact that many boats that sail have reached an age by now and that a lot of equipment needs a thorough maintenance if not a complete replacement. 
It is clear that the goodness of the materials used has permitted that many years have passed since they were assembled on our boats.  During these years many equipment manufacturers have failed, they have closed, they have changed their business, they have passed on to a better life.  
In the future, it will certainly be necessary to find adjustments and solutions to more or less serious problems that will arise.  I personally believe that it is extremely erroneous and dangerous to underestimate the needs of each owner and of each boat that are expressed in this forum.
Therefore, concluding my speech, I am sure that this time too AMEL will demonstrate sensitivity and attention to a problem that has been necessary to resolve.  At the same time I am sure that it is ultra Flex, a company that I know, it will be able to provide all of us and all the owners who want to take action with a safe solution to the problem that we discussed in this forum.

To review what I previously wrote: I received an email from Uflex USA, the Ultraflex distributor in the US. Email message to me from Uflex USAUltraflex, Italy is in contact with Chantier Amel in France, apparently they will be able to supply them a last batch of cables. When one SM owner noticed that the email from Uflex stated only "cables" and not racks, 3 days ago I wrote: "I believe that the US distributor probably misstated what Ultraflex is doing, but since I am not speaking directly to Ultraflex, Italy, I cannot know for sure. Since apparently Thierry BILLARD, manager of SAV at Amel, is in discussions with Ultraflex, I feel it is improper for me to get directly involved. The answer to your question will come from an owner ordering the racks from Amel. I am sure we will know more soon."

Yesterday Thierry Billard SAV Manager emailed me and said: "We suddenly face with numerous emails and phone calls asking for info or order on pinion and rack of the steering system. We suspect you to have posted an anxiolitic message on the social network about a risk of shortage.  Does it  right ? For your review we are about to receive mid of Décember the first units  of the internal toothed bar that must solve almost all this wear issues .The only obligation will be to dismount the pinion rack case to replace this worn toothed bar. Although your help is greatly appreciatly among the Amel community we request you from now to submit us for pre approval any new further message of this sort or to consult us if more info is needed."

Of course it is not my intention to cause "panic" as Maud wrote. My only intention is to help any of you find the information that you need. But, in my attempt to help several of you, I have irritated two good people at Amel. Possibly they think that I am causing "panic" because they are on the receiving side of the solution to this steering parts issue. I will assure you that all I did is what I challenge myself every day to do...that is is help each of you enjoy your Amel while you own her. I have the utmost respect for Thierry and Maud who always do an amazing job helping owners of Amels.

I CC'd Thierry Billard of this email. He will be able to read this so that there is no misunderstanding.
