Re: Main sheet tackle broken catch

 

Matti,

Here is a page from my Amel Book which shows where you can get one and an alternative one piece which will probably never break.

Oh, and you can get the printed book here: https://preparetocastoff.blogspot.com/p/amel-book.html

Dear Amelians,
when Olivier did the survey of Borador he noticed the "Main sheet tackle broken catch" was broken.
It seems to be a very difficult part to get and Amel does not have it.
Can anyone help with the size of the boom groove or the catch dimensions.
I would love to have it machined here in Finland rather than doing it with a disc grinder at site.

Re: VHF Cable Replacement

Thomas Peacock
 

Hi Scott,

I have a SM and am replacing the VHF antenna. I bought a 5215, no cable. Can you give me specific info on what adapter you used? Does the adapter than hook up to RG-8X at the top? Or does the adapter come with sealed RG-8X that runs down to the base of the mast? I’m mostly concerned about minimizing connections at the top of the mast.

Thanks,

I did the same. New RG-8X from new Shakespeare antenna all the way to the nav station. The original Amel way is to have a junction at the base of the mast, presumably so you can remove the mast without having to take out the antenna wire. If I ever need to remove the mast, I'll cut the coax and put the junction on.  Earlier I couldn't communicate with the admiral in a dinghy 300 meters away and now we can hear USCG broadcasts up to 200nm offshore. 

Connection at the antenna was taped with self-amalgamating rubber tape and then covered with 3M electrical tape. I even zip tied the electrical tape for good measure.

Re: replacement relais for sidepower bowthruster on an 54

 

Martin,

I am not sure that Lior's seal information is complete. Amel installs neoprene seals externally and internally on this bow thruster's lower unit 60mm tube. Here is a page from my Amel Book which illustrates the seals that Amel SAV will ship you for your bow thruster.

Hi Peter,

Coastal Climate Control in the US can likely set you up with a new control panel.  I had a broken one when I first bought my boat 3 years ago, and they had several replacement control panels available (none were identical to the original).  I ended up replacing the control boxes on the AC units in addition to the control panels so I could program them on a timer, but you might be able to just replace the panel.

Re: Galley sink drain

Paul Guenette
 

Hi Alan,

I was onboard Rascal SM-404 a few years ago. One of the previous owners had installed a grey water sump kit, (like an off the shelf marine shower / grey water sump kit), under the galley sink which then was plumbed into a Y installed prior to hull the exit point of the main through hull. It was a simple set up which seemed to work well and did not require adding another through hull.

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.

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.

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…
