Re: Vintage Maramu dinghy stowage

Aras Grinius
 

I traded in our inflatable for a Portland Pudgy. She tows quite nicely, however on longer passages I do have to mount it on the foredeck.  AS with the Maramu,  the Sharki's stern tapers quite a bit and the aft deck is not quite big enough to stow the Pudgy there.  So far I've been  stowing it upside down.  It makes it a bit harder to load and unload off the deck. I'm working on building a new cradle that would allow me to stow upright.

One other option I'm thinking about are low profile dink davits made of carbon fiber [the mizzen boom overhangs transom].  The davits would help greatly on short passages and make it easier to move boat around in tight places and improve visibility. Does anyone know of an outfit that works with carbon fiber?

The transom of the Maramu is quite a bit narrower than the SM and later models - as such davits don’t feel right as any dink would overhang the sides If the boat a lot

Plus I have a much treasured Hydrovane on the back

We currently carry an inflatable and also a nesting affair I made

The nesting dinghy stows Inverted under the mizzen boom but that space is not big enough for the inflatable which I pack up and stow in the fwd locker

Really interested in the options people have explored.

Does anyone mount their dinghy right side up on the deck on the foredeck? I’ve seen a few SMs with this setup but feels tight re space on the Maramu

Re: Stainless steel arch Canaries

 

Congratulations again. You have found a very good SM. I hope that you and Antonija enjoy your years ahead.

Fabricating an arch, especially one that you will want takes lots of experience. I am not sure if you will find what you are looking for in the Canaries. My recommendation is, in addition to soliciting 3rd party recommendations, is to have any fabricator in the Canaries supply you with photos of past projects and contact information for his client(s) for references. Fabricating and welding stainless steel is as much an "art" as it is a skill.

Hello everyone,

The boat is in Lanzarote at the moment.
We want to have solar panels on an arch and I wonder if anyone knows someone who does proper stainless steel works somewhere on the Canaries.

Re: HP Pump technical Data

 

Exactly, add the 900 watt low-pressure pump and you are at about 14 amps.

Thanks James
Thats great to know 
The rib looks like a real beauty
agreed re visabiliy issues that a foredeck mounting would create - even with the inflatable stowed inverted fwd of the mast the vis is a bit rubbish - so yes good point
I've previously built my nester and its been great for kids sailing and amazing to row....
but also a hassle to put together
So wondering if to give up on a nester ......
or build a better one ;) 
the Chameleon design looks nice and has a proper centerboard vs my leeboard

The fix is to turn off and on the clima system on the AC breaker box in the engine room. Turn it off and then on and the compressor and electronics immediately come on. The LED display shows the usual numbers and then the boat starts cooling down.

Hello 
Since yesterday when I tried to park in a box in a marina in Auckland my bow thruster motor failed. 
If I turn the beam to the left or right the whole power supply breaks down for a moment. After that the power is back. 
I took the rudder off and it can be turned perfectly by hand. 
But the same happens with the engine. No power for a few seconds, all instruments off, no rotation of the motor. 
Does anyone know this problem. 
Does anyone know how I can find out if it's the motor or maybe a relay that doesn't work. 
Can I test the motor without a relay, maybe on the 4 cables marked D1, D2, and A1, A2?
I am grateful for a quick answer.

Re: Climma compressor turning off randomly

 

BTW, to those who may want to help Billie, but have earlier models:
Amel 55 #56 has the Climma Chiller System, which is probably unlike the very early 55's and all Amel's before Amel started using the Climma Chiller. It is not like all of the Climma installations in Amels before. It has a central cooling compressor with remote air handlers that receive chilled fluid (not freon, rater 80% freshwater, and 20% antifreeze) from a central engine room mounted unit. It has a saltwater circuit contained in the engine room for heat transfer and a separate pump that circulates chilled fluid.

Billie,
I think we all have limited knowledge of this system. Hopefully, some owner has experienced your issue. My guess, and it is really a guess, is that because resetting the system allows you to restart with cooling, there is probably either insufficient water flow in the saltwater or the chilled fluid circuits, causing an automated shutdown. If this is the cause for the shutdown, included in the troubleshooting should be the sensor that shuts it down. If I were you, I would call Coastal Climate Control and ask Rob or Gretchen for the contact information for the most qualified technician for Climma Chillers in your area. Contact:

Re: Climma compressor turning off randomly

John Clanton
 

Billy,

 

I have had the same symptoms, and think I have resolved mine.  I found that the power leads going into the sealed compressor unit were just a little loose.  I am not on the boat now to look at it, but my recollection is there is one lead that is secured with a bolt, and perhaps two leads that are spade & socket connections.  I removed all connections, treated with Corrosion X, slightly crimped the socket connections, then reconnected everything.  I had to use needle nose pliers to re-attach the spade/socket connections as the sockets were very tight.

 

I have not had a problem since then.  I assume, at least in my case, that the less-than-perfect connections were creating too much resistance and that the compressor shut itself down.

 

I hope this helps.

 

Please remember to put your name, boat info, and location in the signature line so that the group can recommend local resources.
