Re: Replacement of carpets in SM

Mark Erdos
 

Alexander,

 

Sorry I cannot help with a dealer in France but I do have a little bit of insight for your project.

 

About 4 years ago we replaced all the carpeting in Cream Puff for under US$500.00. We were fortunate to find a marine carpet dealer near the boat and made a side trip one day to visit their store. We took samples from them and opted for a grayish/brown berber marine quality carpet.

 

The marine quality is very similar to outdoor carpet as it has a backing. The soft rubber backing is perfect for a boat. It is sticky enough to stay in place and not slide. It is not too sticky that you cannot remove it to access panels in the floor. Our carpet was made by Shaw and had a NuWave back.

 

We ordered a 10’ long piece of 12’ wide carpet. This was ample to replace all the carpet and make some door mats.

 

This is where we purchased ours: https://marinecarpeting.com/

 

 

PORT OF CALL by Shaw - Berber Carpet w/ NuWave Backing - 12' Wide x Various Lengths

Colors

Dunes

Lengths and Pricing

12' x 10'

BERBNUWAVE

$365.00

Subtotal

$365.00

 

Our price included delivery to the dock.

 

Check hardware store new you for outdoor carpeting. If you buy from a “marine” supplier, it’ll cost a lot more. You can buy a small piece at first and see how it works. It will need to have a non-slip backing so you can walk on it when underway without it sliding.

 

For the binding rather than send it out to a place with a machine, we found adhesive carpet binding and did it ourselves. We used the old carpet for templates, cut the new carpet with a pair of large workshop scissors and then cut and applied the binding. The entire project took a day to complete.

 

To do all the carpets you will need 100’ of binding. Here is the binding we used:

Grand Total

Here is a link to the store where we purchased it: https://www.tools4flooring.com/instabind-regular-binding-per-linear-ft-p-948.html

The link above has a video about how to install the adhesive binding. It is pretty easy to do. It takes two people (for the glue gun bit)

 

Our new carpet has held up really well and we can remover carpet when needed to wash it gently with our power washer. I have attach a couple of pictures.

 

Hope this helps and good luck with your project.

 

 

 

With best regards,

 

Mark

We are looking at replacing our carpets (al cleaning efforts did not pay out) and would like to know if anybody has any good tips on this. Preferably a supplier in Northern France, as our boat is currently located in Roscoff, Britany.

Hi All
@brent
Thank you for your welcome. I will take a look at the registry. Thanks for that.
 
@Eric
I think I will check again with the registrar and see if they are open to the location suggested by Trevor as it seems to have got past the authorities in Ireland once already.
 
@ryan
Thank for for saving me from the error of my assumption. A picture does save a thousand words. I have only been on the boat once and clearly hadn't paid enough attention to that area.
 
@trevor
You better believe its complex...I am nearly a year at it at this stage. I have been told by the registrar if i get the plate and the new decals in place and photographed they will accept the photos as proof of carving & marking and issue the registration certificate. Your suggested location sounds good to me - entirely out of the way. I will take up you offer and email you directly if you dont mind.

Thank you all for your generous replies.

I forgot to mention that you should mount a circuit breaker . I believe it is 30 or 35 amps where the cord enters the boat in the stern locker. It should be the same amperage as the breaker on the side of the 220 volt panel. (I’m not on the boat)

The only problem with just plugging into a 50 amp outlet is that you need more than 50 amps to shut off the power.

If there is a short somewhere in the shore power it might make a fire.

The galvanic isolator can then be mounted in the Amel’s green /yellow wire.

Hello Dominique,

I believe you have the wrong plug as you do not have a ground..

You want a 50 amp twist lock plug. It has 4 connections for USA boats. For European boats you use only 3 of the 4 connections.

The green/yellow from the boat goes to the green in the plug.

The blue from the boat goes to the black in the plug .

The brown from the boat goes to the red in the plug. .

The white neutral, is not used.

 

The neutral wire is used on USA boats to get 110 volts between the black or the red.-this is not used.

Hello, 

My understanding: 

sv Viva #374 is wired for Europe 240V with 3 prongs; Phase (hot), Neutral, Ground

Ala Wai Marina in Hawaii does have 240V with 3 prongs, 2 Phases (hot)  and  Neutral. No ground, plug protected by a breaker at the Marina socket..
110V is coming between one phase and neutral. Then 240V is coming from the 2 phases.

I bought a socket NEMA L6-30P wich is fitting the Marina socket.   

My questions are:
 
1-How do I wire this NEMA L6-30P socket to replace the European Socket?

I foresee 2 mutually exclusive options: 
11- wire one US phase in the European Neutral
12-combine the 2 US phases in the European Phase 
Both options seems wrong ... 

2-Do I have to install a 30A "galvanic isolator" - as I have seen in previous threads - if the Marina socket is protected by a breaker?  

Any advice and tip will be greatly appreciated.

Re: Mizzen furler gearbox, A54 peculiarity?

Hi Randall;

 

Although our “temporary” fix of spraying CorrosionX in the furler has lasted over 4 years and the furler is still very smooth, it has been on our list to service the unit, once we figure out how to get into it. I have a few questions that I would appreciate your response on:

 

  1. Were you able to simply untwist the bottom cap of the furler assembly with the tool you sketched?
  2. All that was required was to clean everything inside?
  3. Were you able to reuse the bearing?
  4. Any other parts or lubrications needed?

 

Thanks for providing this very useful information and sharing your experience.

 

Happy Sailing;

Thomas,

I removed disassembled and cleaned my mizzen outhaul last fall. You don't need to drop sail. The issue will be in the Delrin bushings that become very stiff. I have attached 2 pictures of my work. The bearings are not to be lubed/greased. I used a cheap homemade tool to unscrew the bottom. 2cm square bar 2 drill holes straight through, put the drill bits in so the solid end goes into the bottom of the furler, with furler in a vice. Worked great. 

I finished and put on a video from a fellow Amel owner who did the same job. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EB67b2hK-kA&t=657s

They do the job at 8.02 of the video. If you need more info let me know. Use the bar not the saw.

Hi all,

 

In the great document by Gary Silver about the overhaul of the SM Mizzen furler gearbox (thanks Arno for sending us a low bandwidth friendly version), it is mentioned that the bottom part of the gearbox housing is drilled with 2 holes that are used to both unscrew that part (with great efforts) and drain the gearbox of liquids. 

 

As our gearbox got stiffer recently, I removed it and it appears that those 2 holes are not through openings.. thus not acting as drains. And the gearbox was full of rainwater up to the attachment bolts. Arno tells me he saw the same. 

So the teflon bushing got very dirty and stiff with all sorts of deposits. 

 

Does anybody know why the drains are no longer machined through? Is it an A54 “innovation”? 

It doesn’t really make sense and I’m thinking of drilling those holes all the way through to reinstate the drain. Any word of advice against that idea?

Hi Marco,

The Ebay link and the Maxmarineshop link are actually one and the same vendor.

The partnumber seems to match the partnumber referred to in the installation manual of B&G, assuming Amel used the straight version. They came in the original B&G box carrying that number.

I have not examined the way the are mounted in detail as mine are still working. But they must be mounted from the underside I would say. There is a tube inside the hull leading all the way into the bilge. 

I’m guessing the sensor is pushed in the hole bedded in Sikaflex. So I’m sure it will be a pig to remove once the time comes. I guess the best way is by drilling a hole in the face of the sensor and putting in a large screw to get some leverage to pull it out. Remember to tie a piece of string to the other end to feed in the new sensor once the old one is out.

Hi Richie,
               Fair winds with your new boat. I registered my SM in Drogheda, they happily accepted the plate screwed onto the wooden frame beneath the floor locker.
Be aware that Irish registration of a foreign flagged vessel lying overseas is a very complex process and difficult to achieve ,as the department of the marine require a survey from someone nominated on their list, most of whom will have no interest in travelling anywhere as there isn't enough money in it for them.
You can get her registered in Ireland if one of the official  ports of entry will accept her on their list providing you give them proof that she actually exists, is VAT paid and you own the majority of the 64 shares.
It took me nine months back in 2007 and lots of patience and time.
If I can help you at all ping me  @ gmail.
Good luck.

 On our SM the sonic speed,  the one with the two sensors,  that is connected to Hydra 200 is giving zero speed on the hydra 2000 monitor. 
This was probably due to the loss of the neoprene cap of the aft  sensor . Unfortunately this probe is out of production from long time.

Please Did  you hknow how to  repair it ?  Do you know how replace the cable and the aft sensor?

Hello Richie. Congratulations on your new Super Maramu (Why Knot, formerly Guma) and welcome to the Amel Owner’s group!  There is an Amel Owner’s Registry used by owners to contact each other. It is only found from within the Amel Owner’s Forum and we don’t post links to it outside of that - it is really only used so that owners can contact each other and owners can decide how much information (or if at all) they would like published in it. For your convenience, I have attached the link to the Registry (https://tinyurl.com/AmelRegistry) and the update form (https://tinyurl.com/AmelRegistryUpdate).   If you would like your new boat on this list, use the later link and I will add it according to your preferences. Thanks and welcome to the Registry!

Hi Richie,

The location you selected would not be my first choice, as (at least on our boat) that side of the bulkhead is covered in the same vinyl material as the headliner.  No doubt you could drill through it, but it makes more sense to me to mount it directly to wood.  If you want to go ahead with this plan, that bulkhead appears to be about 25mm thick.

There's a large wooden beam directly under the mainmast, which I assume hides the compression post.  It's 17 cm wide, with a bit of a radius at the corner.  A 15 cm plate might just fit on the flat part.  I'd see if you can put it there, tucked up close to the bottom of the electrical panel (to the right of our fire extinguisher in the photo).  I can't hazard a guess as to how thick the wood is.

Another likely spot is forward of the head door, directly under the hatch.  That bulkhead is about 15 mm thick.

Yet another option might be the shelf above the forward hanging locker.  It's pretty far outboard, so I'm not sure if it meets the requirement of "directly under the mast".  There's enough space for the plate in between the two doors on our boat.  If you want to hide it behind the door to the saloon, it will fit there too.  The front face of the shelf is about 18 mm thick.

I hope this is helpful, and I also hope the dimensions on your boat are the same as ours.  This was a fun little diversion while I'm on conference calls.

She is being registered in Ireland. She was previously registered in the UK but with the UK leaving the EU we wanted to protect her EU VAT paid status and we couldn't get a straight answer from anyone so it made sense to move the registration.

Dear Paul and Arno, 

thanks for your usefull  info. 

Do you have also examined how to remove the old sensor  (  the aft one) and its cable? its frontal part with the probe  seems to be glued in the front part pf the keel.

 On our SM the sonic speed,  the one with the two sensors,  that is connected to Hydra 200 is giving zero speed on the hydra 2000 monitor. 
This was probably due to the loss of the neoprene cap of the aft  sensor . Unfortunately this probe is out of production from long time.

Please Did  you hknow how to  repair it ?  Do you know how replace the cable and the aft sensor?
thanks

Hi Folks,

I’m a recent SM purchaser and as part of my boat registration procedure I need to attach a stainless steel plate (10cm x15cm) etched with the registration details to the bulkhead under the mast. On a Super Maramu - sight unseen I’m figuring the best location for ease of access and minimal visual impact is above the door from the front cabin to the saloon - on the front cabin side. 

 

I can't access the boat at the moment to take measurements as she is in Greece and I'm in Ireland (coronavirus..no flights) but I have a local who is willing to attach the plate for me if I send him all the parts & fixings.

 

I have a simple question but I would really appreciate an answer. 

 

What length stainless steel wood screws should I use to attach the 1mm thick plate securely without causing damage from bulging/poking through the bulkhead?

 

Kind regards

 

R.
