Re: Marina in Marmaris

Armin <n4796p@...>
 

Hallo Rudy, wir lagen von Mai 2008 bis Mai 2009 in der Setur Marina in Kusadasi. Die Liegeplatzgebühr war die günstigste an der türkischen Küste, allerdings hat der neue Manager um ca 30% aufgeschlagen für 2009. Die Marina ist Tag und Nacht gut bewacht, das Personal nett und hilfsbereit. Die Infrastruktur ist sehr gut, zum Flughafen Izmir (75 km) kommt man mit dem Taxi für 45 bis 50 €. Um SAMANTHA (die wir aus Port Napoleon und von Deiner Homepage her kennen) liegen zu lassen ist die Marina ideal (und sie wird bestimmt nicht versanden!)
Viele Grüsse
Nicole und Armin

Re: [Amel] Furuno 1720

Your problem might be due to your shortening of the cable.

Radars are tuned to a given length of cable between antenna and monitor, or
rather digital signal processor. You might have to retune the system but I
do not know how to go about it. Maybe you’ll find instructions in your
manual, if not, a dealer should be able to do it fairly easily.

Hello All
Thanks for all the input re prop driven alternators, I think I have decided
to go for the clean and silent approach and install solar panels

Does anyone out there know why the picture on my Furuno 1720 has started to
slowly revolve in small increments each time the radar sweeps? The book says
suspect the scanner motor or pcb card, I wonder whether cutting and
reconnecting the cable to facilitate a rerig has caused the problem

Does anyone have any parts for sale? any info gratefully received
Thanks

Re: [Amel] Cockpit enclosure

minaxi53 <no_reply@...>
 

I also put a bar above the mizzen boom to do full cockpit enclosure. Being 6'3" I went one stage further as even with full bimini I could not stand up straight. My solution was to re-route the mainsheet from under the boom and run it with the traveller to a new winch. This allowed me to raise the bimini and I now have more than 6'6" of headroom, what a relief for the non vertically challennged Amel Owner!

Re: [Amel] Re: Head Sail Furler

Danny and Yvonne SIMMS
 

Thanks for this Trevor, your comments combined with Vito's give me some confidence and certainly the unit continues to fuction well. However just in case something comes up in the future I still would like to know how to go about servicing the unit.But if no one has had to that would suggest I have nothing to worry about.
We are near Newport Rhode Island and after three exceptional days it is pouring with rain. We are appreciating the extensions we had made to the bimini cover before we left FL giving us a fully enclosed cockpit. Following an idea we saw on BeBe in Opua we put a stainless tube across behind the mizzzen mast above the boom and atached to the mizzen shrouds ala the pole holders on the main shrouds. To this we have attached zip removeable top and sides and back and we have a fully useable cockpit regardless of the weather. Wonderfull

Danny,
I had a similar problem last year in Spain. Amel told me that the grease is not actually from the furler but from inside the foil which needs to be removed approx every twenty thousand miles and regreased.
I have probably sailed a further ten thousand miles South, where it has been much warmer and have had no further problems and still have not replaced the grease.
I hope this is of some help.

Re: [Amel] outhaul gearbox

Mike Ondra
 

Trevor,



I did extensive research on the outhaul, and furling, gearboxes (both the
same) used at least since SM #240. These squarish boxes are indeed Leroy
Somer, not the rounder Bonfiglioli used in the past. Unfortunately I have
the model # information on the boat, not with me here. Perhaps someone else
can read the # off the nameplate on the gearbox, but I don't think it will
do you any good.



I tracked them down through a local Leroy Somer dealer. After much effort I
broke down and purchased a new gearbox from Amel. Leroy Somer would not
sell the gears or the entire gear box direct no matter how hard I pressed,
only through Amel. I believe Amel also will sell the gears separately, but
perhaps the sum of the cost of the parts will be near the cost of the entire
assembled gearbox.



However, bearings and seals are "off the shelf" components and can be
purchase in many places that service machinery.

Propeller Removal

rossirossix4
 

I'll be replacing my prop shaft seals and will need to remove my propeller first. This is a fixed prop version of a 1993 Santorin, but I expect that it is the same for SMs with fixed props during the same era. Looks like there is a thin flat metal tab that must be removed first? Does the nut loosen counter clockwise. Seems like a bearing removal tool might help me remove the prop but I'd like to hear any suggestions anyone has.

Bob,

Giovanni,

The DC 110-12 spec sheet that you received from DC Battery shows Float 13.6V ~ 13.8V and Initial charging at 14.4V ~ 14.9V

The FR-31 spec sheet that I received from Phil at DC Battery when I bought my batteries shows Float 13.2V ~ 13.8V and Initial charging at 14.2V ~ 14.6V

I believe that either they have changed the specs, or something else is wrong.

I am unable to upload the spec sheet I received from DC Battery to the Amel website. Possibly I can email it to you. I suggest you ask DC Battery why there is a difference. More importantly, with the Initial Charging and Float specs you received, I am not certain that the 30 amp and 100 amp battery chargers will indeed work properly. You probably should also check with Reya regarding these new specs. The contact information I have for Reya France is: Lucy Kelly <lucy.kelly"at"reya.com>.

I am interested in what DC Battery and Reya says about this.

Giovanni,

I realize the FullRiver FR-31 is not on the FullRiver website and suspect that FullRiver may make it for certain distributors like DC Battery or possibly it is re-numbered for DC Battery.

The FullRiver FR-31 that is in a brochure at DC Battery is the battery that we purchased. More that this, I cannot say.

Gary,

The photo I uploaded to the photo section of the site titled Battery Compartment shows a total of 13 batteries in BeBe, #387 and I am fairly sure that the compartment is the same size as yours.
