Hi, would anyone have the drawings for the Automatic Jib Furler from the 1985 era? I played around with the engage/disengage lever on the casing and now cannot get the gears to engage again no matter what position I try, would anyone have any advice on how to tackle this?

Many thanks for setting this up Bill and also to Tilo for putting it on UTube.

 

Wonder if at some point Jimmy might do a chapter  from Panama into the Pacific and beyond to the west

Mark- you might go with 1-3/8 for the 35mm side and try US Plastics.

Hello Ahme, 

I have 4 injectors.  
But they are in Sint Maarten and I am stuck in France. 
Should be able to be back in Nov.  


I purchased mine as spare from Diesel Services of America (I don’t recommend that company) but the Volvo part is 3581135 (for the TMD 22 P) - many mistakes are made with these injectors - mine are correct.

Since you have the TMD 22 P here is a list of the other parts I have (just in case).

Description:

Jimmy Cornell has influenced the contemporary cruising scene more than any other sailor. An accomplished sailor, public speaker and author, he has sailed over 200,000 miles in all oceans of the world including three circumnavigations as well as voyages to Antarctica and the Northwest Passage.

Thousands of sailors have fulfilled their dream of blue water cruising with the help of Jimmy Cornell’s books, among them the international bestseller World Cruising Routes. Now in its 8th edition, and with over 200,000 copies sold to date, this is one of the best selling nautical publications in the world.

As the founder of the highly successful ARC transatlantic rally, Jimmy Cornell is credited with having devised the offshore cruising rally concept. In the last four decades, Jimmy Cornell has organized 38 transatlantic rallies, five round the world rallies, and one round the world race, with over 3,000 boats and 15,000 sailors having participated in his sailing events.

From my perspective, the first Jimmy Cornell seminar that Judy and I attended was after we had sailed most of the world and had over 20 years of sailing experience. We learned a lot!

We are very pleased that Jimmy has taken time out of his very busy schedule to give a special ZOOM presentation to the Amel Yacht Owners Group. I encourage you to RSVP soon for this meeting.

I need to replace the original port-side jib sheet winch gear box: it is a Bonfiglioli VF 63, MVF63/P unit. Can anyone suggest a replacement which will fit the existing electric motor which seems very sound.  I am located in Australia at Greenwell Point on the NSW south coast.  Flora was originally Amelie IV which some of you may remember..

I am looking for some ideas to redo the sea chest. I am pretty sure the unit I have is not factory since an additional water maker was added by the previous owner. Also, my current unit is polypropylene pipe and I have read about corrosion being an issue on other Amels. So, I have no idea how Amel originally designed this.

 

Coming off the Vetus strainer, I have independent direct connections to the generator and engine. The third goes to a one-way flow valve, a shut-off valve and then to a pipe with outlets for air conditioning, heads/anchor wash, water maker one, and water maker two. There are no independent shut-off valves for each of these four outlets.

I am wondering if anyone has tackled this project and can give me some pointers regarding design and placement.

 

I would like something that is easy to clean and has individual valves for each outlet. Thoughts?

Re: Tender Amel 54

Mark Erdos
 

Hi Bill,

 

To prove your point. I have never used the seat cover for our Highfield. I really have no use for it and would have preferred it if they took $20 off the price of the dinghy and kept it. I guess I have added to the cause J

 

We do like the Highfield dinghy.

 

 

With best regards,

 

Mark

Ian,

 

You touched on one of my favorite subjects, so I will comment in an "old-man rant" sort of reply.

 

It is very common today that manufacturers omit certain added features or components because the buyer rarely buys the product based on the addition or the quality of these added features or components. It is a fact of life in manufacturing and selling any product. Many manufacturers choose to not add cost when they know the buyer is not focussed on the benefit of the associated added cost of that feature or component during his buying decision. Things have changed since the days when manufacturers, like Amel, included many costly components in the purchase price. You and I are aware of the time when an Amel included 5 sails and more than one Amel owner never used either ballooner.

 

The good news is the seat cover can be used as an excellent pattern for someone to make one from Sunbrella...and Highfield has given us a full year to have a quality seat cover made! The same thing goes for the included dinghy cover. Highfield and 3D share the same not-so-good supplier of these components.

 

Of course, this is all caused by us, the buyer. 

 

We almost never inquire about the quality of these added components and spend almost all of our time inquiring about other things like price. In fact, Highfield would likely lose sales if they increased the price of the dinghy to cover the additional cost of quality fabric. So, in this case, Highfield is doing exactly what "we" want.
