Re: SM spare halyard on main mast

Jarek,

I have the same mast head on my SM#32.
Using the hole at the front there is a big eye as per the picture attached on which you can put a block for a spinnaker or genaker halyard.

Well, obviously Amel changed the mast top during the production of the SM to allow for a specific mounting for an external halyard. I am betting Mr. Amel resisted this addition.😀

This is another simple reminder, that although SMs look alike from the beginning of production until the last one produced, changes were made a lot more frequently than most of us realize. I try to remember when answering a question to include this statement in all answers.

Where do you send the grey water from a washing machine?

JB Duler
 

Hello,

We are rebuilding the whole plumbing system.

1. For the washing machine, where do you send the grey water? In the bilge and then you pump it out? There is an used thruhull above the water line with a sea cock. Any of you sending the grey water above the water line. If you heel on the wrong you run the risk of sending sea water inside the washing machine. Not good. If you close the sea cock you run the risk of a memory lapse and running the washing machine through a closed sea cock. Not good either.
What is your setup?
2. Fresh water pump: is 6GPM, 60 PSI too much pressure?

Thks!

i can take some pictures and measurements for you, and will also include mount models.  I'll run down to the boat today and send them tonight.

Hi Dan,

Sorry to resurrect this old topic but the installation didn't go well because the fitter failed to install new engine mounts meaning that we have excessive vibration and noise. I am going to have the mounts changed. 

What mounts did you end up using please? I can see they are different to the originals. Were you able to put them in the same place as the old mounts without alteration?

Thanks

I reckon someone removed the spare halliards  to use the holes for the forward  aerial and the wind transducer. They seem to be occupying the places where my two halliards are located.

Bill Hi,
I am far away from my boat now but checked pictures and my 1997 model #201 is without that extension on the main mast. I am certain that it is original and there was no modification made to the mast top. I took the masts down for the first time since new for repainting (see picture).

Hallo Marco, i had a sharki before, now an sm #200, sharkis are Really nice for the mediterranean. I sold her, because i did not like the Perkins 4.108 Motor. Difficult to get spare parts (excerpt parts4engine), and an inch system for the screws, and very difficult to repair, because not much space in the motor room.

If you find one with a replaced Motor, under 60000, it will be a good solid bargain.

Dear Bill and Amel Yacht Owners Group,


Many thanks for giving me the possibility of listening to Olivier Zoom meeting, excellent informative event!
I am not yet an Amel Yacht Owner but interested in the Sharki model.
Will definitely contact Olivier for a survey, once identified good candidate units.

With my best regards,
marco baldan

Re: Check valve on Heat exchanger Raw Water Pipe?

Chris Doucette
 

Yes!  Thank you for helping me figure it- everything has a purpose original or not- and now I know I'm not removing something critical.   Chris


Re: Check valve on Heat exchanger Raw Water Pipe?

 

Chris,

Now that you have your answer, remove the rusty part completely, always use a good fresh OEM quality impeller and change it every 400 hours or less, always cleaning the pump interior, and you'll never have to worry about loose impeller pieces.

Chris,

Thats a "wye" strainer.  Definitely an after-market modification placed there probably in an attempt to prevent pieces of a failing raw water impeller from getting lodged in the heat exchanger.  If you take off that plug, you'll find a basket in there to catch solid bits.  Or, given the condition of the outside, you might find parts of a basket!

Not exactly an elegant implementation, but not a terrible idea.

Reminder: An Amel Survey by Olivier Beaute

When: Saturday, 16 January 2021, 20:00 to 21:00, (GMT+00:00) UTC

Where:From La Rochelle, France

An RSVP is requested. Click here to RSVP

Organizer: Bill Rouse brouse@...

Description:

All,
 
It is my great pleasure to announce that Olivier Beaute will present at our first ZOOM Meeting of 2021. It will be held on 16 January 2021 20:00 to 21:00 UTC. Details:
 
Many members of the Amel Yacht Owners Group trained on their new Amels with Olivier in La Rochelle. Many of us relied on Olivier as the manager of Amel SAV. And, a substantial number of our Group have used Olivier's surveys when purchasing their pre-owned Amels. As most of you know, after a long and successful career with Amel, Olivier Beaute went into the survey business and established ATLANTIC YACHT SURVEY.
 
The topic of Olivier's ZOOM Meeting will be "An Amel Survey." His presentation will last about 30 minutes with 30 minutes for questions. Tilo Peters will monitor, queue, and ask Olivier your texted questions.  
 
This meeting will be very good for all of our members. 
  • Members who own an Amel will someday face having their Amel surveyed. These members will be interested in how to maintain and prepare their boat for a survey and some of the common things that are overlooked by Sellers in preparation to sell their Amel. This will be important information to know in advance of a survey. 
  • Members who are searching for an Amel will need a survey to complete the purchase. These members will enjoy learning more about the survey process, especially the Olivier Beaute survey process. This should be extremely valuable.

I suspect that this meeting may book to capacity and urge you to register soon.

Hi have a look a this- I am trying to identify what it is and why it is in place (it is corroded).  Ignore the relay wired thing- as it is just zip tied there.   I believe it to be a check valve put in place on the raw water hose from the impeller to the heat exchanger.  Later Model SMs with the Yanmar have this elevated (and shaky - makes me nervous some times)  heat exchanger.  In other photos i have found, I have yet to see this device on the hose- it is direct.   HOWEVER- it looks original, as it has the same cloth and glue method that AMEL used to secure all the other hoses.  Also there is a custom stainless steel mount holding it (very AMEL).  Does anyone else have this?  Was it added to some later model SMs by AMEL to address some nuance?  I would love to know-as it is getting nasty and needs replacement or bypassing.
