Hi Eric;

 

Thanks for sharing the information and your offer to accommodate the group purchase.

 

I’d  like 3 of them, if possible. Please let me know how to pay.

 

Happy Sailing;

I have broken a few of these switches over the years. I have done this by reaching over the generator to retrieve something stored behind the genset.

I received a quote from my Onan dealer and on Amazon for around $90- plus tax which is ridiculous.

I tracked down the OEM manufacturer and the cost is about $23- plus a one time set up fee of about $50- I plan on ordering 2 of these. They stated that they make this for ONAN. If anyone is interested please let me know and I can order them for you $33- each plus USPS of about $8.00.

I will order the switches within a week.

Fair Winds,

Eric

Thanks Eric. Sent you a message with order details.

When these fail, go bad, or break, how do you know? Does it prevent the genset from starting/running? Or does it allow the genset to overheat if there are issues with the cooling system (broken impeller for example) and potentially damage things?

Cheers,

I took the stop off at the forward end of the track and undid the stanchion screws, then bent the stanchion out of the way and they just slid right off.

Hi All, I have just bought new Antal Traveler Blocks for my Super Maramu. The reason I bought new ones is that a few older boats have experienced a few breakages and hopefully I will get to do a few more blue water passages and I’d prefer to not have them break underway. Anyway there is nothing visually wrong with my old ones so I am offering them up for sale for anyone who would like one or both in their spares locker. I’d like around $100USD each

Re: Color code of hull Amel 54

Here's an excellent you-tube video on gelcoat color mixing from Boatworks Today, a great blog that covers every aspect of fiberglass repairs. It works!
It's a two part program, this is part 1.

Re: Color code of hull Amel 54

 

I agree. Even if you had the original color codes or even a container of the original material, it is not going to match the color of your boat today.

I received following answer from Maud at Amel.

There is no RAL for the white color of the hull. The only solution is to use a spectrometer and try to find the most approaching tone locally.

Hi Alexander, I notice in your tag line you sign off with “the first gold line” (Amel 54). Other than updated cosmetics, is there any difference between that and previous Amel 54’s (i.e. like the Red Line Super Maramu’s after 2003)?  Thanks.

Below you find the original answer from CNVP (Societé Naval de Vieux Port) in La Rochelle, they are THE competent company in LR for this, and they have installed an extra bow protection and have made more fiberglass and GelCoat work on SY Oceanica I. The answer to your quenstions is: There is no colour code, makes no sense also, because the colour is changing with the years. Find a real good specilaist on gelcoat, check the actual colour with a spectrometer and let a specialist mix te colour induvidually for you. It is an effort, but the only way to be happy after the repairs!

Google translation of the key sentence: For gelcoat shades, AMEL does not give the references or RALs of their color, but if you need to reproduce the color you have to go through a professional with a color spectrometer (or spectrophotometer).

Pour les teintes de gelcoat, AMEL ne donne pas les références ou RAL de leur couleur mais si vous avez besoin de reproduire la teinte il faut passer par un professionnel avec un spectromètre (ou spectrophotomètre) de couleur.

Re: Santorin Bow Thruster/genoa furler breaker.

VICTOR MOLERO
 

Hello. I have lost the 8 rivets that hold the genoa roller to the grey piece to handle it manually when disengaged from the furler engine. I don't know how to replace them :-( Any idea of where to find instructions to do it...? Thanks in advance.

Masse Negative Leak solved

Thank you all for the excellent advice.
I have found and solved the problem...
It was the Bowthruster after all. A build up of carbon dust from the brushes on top of the commutator bridged up to the top bearing housing. I stripped down the whole top section, removed the brushes took off top brush holding part. I could then access the commutator and even vacuum out by the magnets. I polished the commutator with 1200 grit and scraped out the grooves.
Thanks again

Re: Rub Rail insert

Bill Hall
 

Hi Pat,
Bill Hall, looking to be an Amel owner.   Do you plan to leave the rub rail die with the vender?   You could also place it with Bill Rouse.  Future rub rail orders could contribute for using the die.  Would benefit many.
Just a thought.

Rob, Maude at Amel said I needed two 16 meter pieces, which is  52.5 feet ,so I am going to purchase two 53 ft. lengths or 106 ft. The 104 came from a post I read months ago and is too short. To follow Gary’s suggestion, I guess you could  push the insert every foot after installed to compress it . I also will leave a couple inches at the stern end run long and install permanently and make final cut when the temperature cools to 40 or 50 F. If you decide to join in the group buy email personally with your info. We should try to reduce posts to the Amel site.

Re: A54: Cable length between main mast head and chart table

Hello,
Main mast top to the wirebox above front aisle door is exact 20 meters. 

From there you find a cable canal to the nav table.

Hi all,

Does anyone know the precise length of cable required to go from the top of the main mast to the chart table through the standard conduit on the Amel 54? For instance for the VHF antenna cable.

I’m considering using an pre-crimped FME-terminated RG-8x VHF cable and I need to select the correct length.

A contact at Pochon said « probably » 25m and a trusted owner said maybe 28m.
