Re: Galley sink drain

Dennis Johns
 

Hi Alan, I have a Maramu so I don't know if this suggestion applies.  Our aft head sink drains to the sea in a thru hull port amidships.  Don't know where the SM aft sink drains but you might want to check if you can "T" your galley drain (with the 'Y" valve as you propose) into that aft drain line.

Hello Amelians,

This is actually an old topic, but I couldn't find any definitive answers.
For years we have been rinsing dishes and emptying coffee grounds in the cockpit to avoid fouling the grey water "tank", and I'm tired of that inconvenience.
Has anyone in the group installed a thru hull in a SM to drain the galley sink directly to the sea?
If so, where did you locate the thru hull, as it is almost impossible to have it on the centreline?
Did you have issues on stbd tack with water coming up through the drain?
Clearly any thru hull needs a valve to close it off, so that would solve that issue, but I also thought of having a 3 way valve so the drain could be diverted to the grey water tank when at sea.
Any advice/ ideas welcome.

Cheers

Hi
Regarding the rubber, I got mine from SAV Amel, Euro 4,8 each. They call them "Embout caoutchouc/ rubber stop"
Before ordering, I sent photos  to Maud so she could get the exact model.
Hope it helps

Stefan / Martin,

I just replaced a few of those springs and rubber blocks. You can ask any Antal dealer to order them from Antal. That is what I did.
Be very explicit about what you need using tracksize, pictures and other descriptions to make sure you get what you need.
These rubber block come in may different sizes depending on the car/stopper configuration. They just glue in place.
Also make sure the bolt that holds the "wheel" is tight. I lost one during a passage and apparently that happens to others as well. I use threadlocker to prevent the nut from loosening.

Peter,

I meant This Group when I said "here." I am sure someone has this control module because they replaced the entire unit.

I do not have the number, but I am sure SAV@... has it.

For reference here is what the correct relay looks like:

Hallo to the group,
the relais fitted to our bowthruster is not original for sure and a cause of constant problems. It is an Albright relais but there are no specifications given on the housing. From a sidepower dealer I got the information that the original relais is not available. 
Does anyone know if there is a suggested replacement relais?

Attached a pic of the relais as it is know. Easy to see that it is too big. On the right  of the pic to see that a part of the plywood had been cut away by the former owner to allow the bow thruster move up and down.

Any idea?

Re: What is this?

Hi Martin,

these are end caps of the housing tubes of watermaker membrans.
Obviously the previous owner works on them or exchanged the membranes. Therefore he must open the end caps (sic!) of the membrane tubes.

Quite difficult to get them off, look at the broken plastic. He works with a grip handle or so…

Best wishes to La rochelle

Re: Housing for Climma Switch assembly

 

Peter,

The best source is most likely here. 

There have been more than a few owners replace AC units in SMs over the years. Is yours a Climma Compact 9 with everything including compressor inside the boat, or is yours a Climma Split unit with the compressor in the engine room?

Hallo Stefan

what a surprise, until to your question we did not reckognize that the spiral springs on our genoa cars are broken too. If there is a possibility to get new ones we are interested.

Dear Amelians,

the spiral springs on our Genoa and Staysail Sheet Cars are nearly all broken.
Thus a flapping Sail causes heavy banging etc..

Does anybody knows a resource to get this special spiral springs or appropriate rubber buffers?
I found nothing.

Re: asymmetrical spinnaker

Alan Leslie
 

We had a "Code Zero" with the same setup, but lost it in unpredicted bad weather in Vanautau some years ago - actually it was my fault, should have taken it down before setting off, but we live and learn.
Now we have an asymmetrical spinnaker with a snuffer which attaches at the foot in the same way as the code zero, but no furling lines.
The hoisting halyard is the same, through a block on the front of the mast head.
We snuff it behind the main when running off and then drop the sausage and put it away.
Very simple, and an awesome sail when reaching, in conjunction with the mizzen ballooner.
