Washer Dryer Manual in English

John & Ruth Martin <jjmartin24@...>
 

Folks

In case it is useful to anyone, enclosed is a manual and diagrams in
English. While it is not clear exactly what Thomson model is described, I
received it in response for my request for an English language manual for a
Thomson Australe 3 washer/dryer as equipped on our 1998/99 SM (#248).

I've also inquired of the Eumenia company for an English manual on the
dishwasher with no luck so far. If anyone has one, could they pass it on
somehow ?

Thanks alot!

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Wind Generator

Ian Shepherd <g4ljf@...>
 

David,

I have fitted an Air Marine 403 on the top of my mizzen mast. It's much lighter than the Kiss, so don't put one of those up there! I have given details on how I dampened down the vibration using special mounts from AVM Ltd in Farnham. You should find my input on the owners web sight. Noise is really not a factor if it's mounted up there, but vibration is. The wind speeds is greater aloft, and often I am charging when deck mounted generators are almost stationary.

The downside is that my turbine bearings failed after one years use. This may have been exacerbated by the fact that as the yacht rolls, a precessional force will be exerted on the bearings at right angles to the movement of roll. On the other hand, it may have been coincidental. The manufacturers have replaced the bearings free of charge.

Their Air-X model is somewhat quieter than the 403, but they have not yet solved the RFI problems with the circuitry that controls the blade speed. I would rather have quiet SSB reception, so I have stuck with the 403.

Good luck on fitting one to Gallant. I found it to be a worthwhile investment, especially when complemented with two 120W 24V solar panels.

Best Wishes

Ian Shepherd

Do not get the American Aeromarine as you will not only suffer from the
noise but will also be very unpopular with your neighbours.
I saw a test report of a new type in a British Yachting magasine a few
months ago. It was on a generator which was on a transom mounted bracket
and could be fitted with a water propeller and pivoted down into the water
for downwind sailing or pivotted upwards fitted with an air fan for use at
anchor or not down wind.
Whichever one you pick put it at the top of the Mizzen or on a pole aft.
In 1989 I fitted mine on my then dog ( Oyster woof woof) just above the
radar and then discovered that I could not use the mizzen staysail.......it
doesn't damage the sail. it just stops both sail and generator from
working.

Good luck Anne and John Hollamby, SM 319

I think you have made the right decisions. The davits are good ,subjct to
the points I made and they have one great virtue,they are not only elegant
but also light in weight and weight at the ends of the boat is bad for
performance.

Great News...I have just heard from Bruntons Autoprops that mine (AP 3270)
is not required for recall.

Hi David

Most marinas on the east coast have 50 amp service wich is 220V.
You
need to rewire your current socket for one that fits the 50A
socket.
The only issue is that US 220 is 60Hz and EU is 50 Hz. All of the
equipment will work on the boat except the microwave, clothes
washer
dishwasher and the heating acts a little weird. You should consult
an
expert about the wireing of the groung wire.

Re: Power lead for SSB

asm283 <no_reply@...>
 

Thank you for you advise. I will definatly use a power converter for
the SSB. I think I will buy the davits from France. I have looked for
quite a while and the system made in La Rochelle seems to be the
best, if not perfect solution. And they dont look too bad.

Dear Vito,
The amswer is to fit an isolated 24/12 volt converter made by an
English
company called Alphatronix. The cost is about 150 pds stlg. It is
approved
for usein everything from petrol tankers downwards. If you want to
waste
money get the one made by Icom at about three or five times as
much !!! I
do not have the Email address for Alphatronix to hand as I am not
on the
boat but I am sure I gave all the details to this group six or nine
months
ago so look back through the archive. One must wonder about the guy
who
told you to run a SSB off the starter battery. Are you sure he is
competent
to make the installation....when he has ask him to demonstrate it by
calling up a ham operator at least a thousand miles away. After I
installed
mine I had a technician do this and he spoke with an amateur radio
operator
in Poland with no problem 5 by 5 from my boat in a marina in Malta.
Fortunately the ground plate by Amel is excellent.
I have the davits from La Rochelle where they were fitted by the
makers.
There are a number of points. The fixing to the transom is OK on
the port
side as they fitted a S/S strut to take the load. The starboard
side should
have been reinforced with a hardwood pad resined on to the inside
of the
transom. The lifting arrangement as supplied is totally inadequate
to lift
a dinghy even though my RIB is aluminium and weighs only 37 kilos
on its
own. What is needed is a set of small triple sheave blocks to pull
the
davits up and a similar set to lift the dinghy to the davits. This
set will
need small plates welded on to the davits to take jam cleats for the
lifting tackle. The hinge bolts for the davits are not a close fit
in the
fittings thus allowing movement. With any davits the dinghy needs
to be
securely lashed to avoid any movement for short days sails but for
longer
trips the dinghy will still have to be lifted on to the deck. If
you need
to lift the davits/dinghy/outboard etc overnight to avoid theft the
solution is to use the mizzen staysail halyard tied on to the
outboard end
of the davit next to the outboard end of the dinghy. Incidentally
my dinghy
is a 3.1mtr made in New Zealand where it retails for about 1100pds
stlg. It
is absolutely first class and will eventually get up on the plane
with its
15 hp motor with three heavy adults and a full fuel tank even in
mildly
choppy waters, a load of over 300 kilos. I stow it inverted fully
inflated
on the aft cabin top for short passages and in the same place
deflated for
long passages. It is not made of Hypalon but mine has spent two
years in
the Med and still looks as new. The make is Southern Pacific and
they are
,I think, Now being imported to the UK by a company in Wales
although I
suspect it would be cheaper to buy one direct from NZ and haveit
sent by
ship or air cargo. Even with those costs and import duties which
might not
be payable for a yacht in transit. Incidentally 3.1 mtrs is the
maximum
size that fits on the aft cabintop. If anyone is interested I have
all the
contact info on my boat down in the marina. I suppose that Joel
Potter
could make a nice deal if he were to take up an import agency for
them !!

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Power lead for SSB

Ian Shepherd <g4ljf@...>
 

Hello Peter,

thanks for the info on the Alphatronix DC/DC converter. You are right about the price of the Icom P66, at least in the UK. However, I should point out that the Icom when purchased from Stephane Genitou at Pochon La Rochelle is just 308 Euro's, which is not bad.

One quick question. Do you suffer from any RF interference from the Alphatronix unit? I take it also that it is a 30 amp unit that you quoted for? Most importantly, is the input and output completely isolated from each other at DC? Crucial from the point of view of electrolysis. I had a 60 amp Far East unit on Crusader that cost around 80 Pounds, which worked well, though the input's and outputs were not isolated, though I found a workaround.

I need a new converter for my new boat in July, so would appreciate your comments.

Best Wishes
