I know that. Question I asked is due to significant price difference for the same product from different suppliers.

Hi Peter

Unless I am misunderstanding, if Mexico is a 60hz system will that ever work with the climate if it is designed for 50hz?

Thanks Andrew and Eric,
I am in the process of getting a new pump/motor.  With the suggestions and help from the group, I took the Calpeda pump out and isolated the winding leads and got the following readings :
> Main windings
> Green1 to Green2: 12.7Ohm
> Green1 to ground: 290 Ohm
> Green 2 to ground: 277 Ohm
> Starter windings
> Red to Black:  17.1 Ohm
> Red to ground: 260 Ohm
> Black to ground:  277 Ohm

The relatively low resistance to ground would explain why the Amel breaker on the 220 panel was tripping upon plugging in West coast 220 power with two hot legs, as one leg would be going through 280 ohms resistance to ground.  When powered from the generator that would be a neutral leg and would not draw enough current to trip the breaker.

Now the challenge is getting the replacement pump/motor here at a reasonable cost.  I’m trying a Mexican Calpeda distributor in an attempt to avoid exorbitant Mexican import duties.

Yes Andrew the generator is 220VAC, 50 Hz.

Re: Multiplexer Wi-Fi

Hi Slavko,

Thanks for your advice and the docs.
I new the docs you sent me, but my problem is that I don’t have the B&G connection box installed, so, there’s no cables ready for NMEA 0183 out connection available on the system. I have the B&G processor device (on back of the rack) from and to the instruments, transducers and the hydra 2000 are connected. I want to know from where I can “steal” the NMEA 0183 signal. See the picture attached.

I'm trying to make a Wi-Fi network from the original electronic equipment on my SM year 2001. Can someone help me know where to get the NMEA 0183 signal from Hydra 2000?  on the back cover of the hydra 2000 there is no other outlet, except the connector that goes to the processor.  I don't have the connection box installed.

Hi Nick,

Hope Rascal is treating you well.  The previous owners of Rascal went through the Panama Canal with us aboard Aquarius!  From what I saw of Rascal in Panama, you have a wonderful Amel!

Re: Watermaker #photo-notice

FWIW:

The chance the oil will find its way to the membranes is very small as the pressure gauge is way downstream relative to the membranes. At the control panel there is no connection between the salt water flow and the product water flow.

Hi Ken,

what type of the Transducer do you have? Professional or Standard? There is a difference in hole diameter. One is 60mm and other is 45mm for Standard.

Thank you for answer.

Awesome description and setup Scott. Thank you. I think we will change a bit of how we set up our asymmetric based on your tips. And agree, the soft shackles are super helpful as well as a lot of blocks and fairleads

Stefan,

We do like it. - the size seems to be about right. We can sail at windspeeds where before, the motor would definitely come on. On the other end, we had a situation at night in an area with low forecasted CAPE and of course a squall hit and we saw over 30 knots apparent.I made the decision to just keep the parasailor up rather than risk crew going forward to try to wrestle it down. No damage or difficulty steering whatever. We just flew along at 9-10 knots.

The motion is MUCH improved over the wing on wing setup. The only downside is setting it up can be more work than the wing on wing. I just bought the ATN tacker and will try that out next time we fly it. Joerg seems to love the ATN, so I have high hopes.

Hi Scott,

regarding the size of your Parasailor.
Are you satisfied with it? Or do you recommend different size?

Btw, the little welded loops far forward on the life rails, circled in blue, are - on my opinion - for connecting a belt as a safety element for the seat / your wife :-) / not falling out forward.
Mine made a kind of webbing for it - see attached.

Greetings,
I’m hoping someone has run into this before, and can shed some light.  I have the feeling the answer is staring me right in the face and I just can’t see it.

For 3 years of owning la Querida SM#207 I’ve always run the heaters and Air Conditioning from generator power.  The marina where I was berthed only offered a 30A 120VAC circuit.  Now that we’re in Mexico, we’ve had occasion to run the water heater and Air Conditioning from shore power.  It has not gone well.  Upon plugging into shore power the breaker on the side of the 220VAC load center in the galley immediately tripped.  Mind you this is North American 220(230) VAC with two hot legs and no neutral.  Together with an electrician we found the offending circuit and disconnected the blue (normally neutral) wire and all circuits worked except the Climma air conditioning.  Restoring that connection A to B in the diagram above, the Air conditioning works being powered from the generator.  However the main breaker trips immediately when connected to shore power.  Power feed “1” comes off the main power distribution, no circuit separate circuit breaker.  Power feed “2” comes off the “Climma” individual breaker on the Amel Panel.

Measuring voltage from “B” to a brown junction point reads 125VAC.  From “B” to a blue wire junction point (normally neutral) also reads about 125 VAC.  “B” to ground is open.

The electrician did his work three ports ago (and we were sailing the next day) when our priority was to get the hot water heater to work without bothering the neighbors with generator noise and exhaust.  Now our priority is getting the air conditioning working from shore power.  We’re much further south and the cabin is a sauna most evenings.  The previous owner was on board for a week in Zihuatenejo and reiterated he was able to run all circuits (including the air conditioning) from shore power.  He also did his cruising in Mexico with 2 hot leg 230VAC power.

Any tips or similar past experience/solutions would be welcome.
