Re: Windscreen Replacement

 

Including all material, all labor, and including routing for a gasket and new gasket on the port side windshield, and including painting a 30mm stripe around 3 of the 4, will be around 1000 euro, including installation.

Of course, prices will vary from place-to-place. The difference in price will mostly be the difference in profit.

I checked St Thomas and the 10mm acrylic price was $280.00 US  and $200.00 US to cut and drill them. I removed the old windows with my Fein Tool scraper blade.
They would have installed them for $240.00 US more.

Re: asymmetrical spinnaker

 

Is there a reseason why you do not simply use the center roller, taking the tack line under the roller, and forgetting about the line fairlead?

Re: Steering wheel removal

Patrick McAneny
 

Slavko, 
I removed mine probably ten years ago to send it out to have it coated by Color Wheels ,a vinyl coating that has held up very well and still looks new. As to getting the wheel off, it took a lot of force to get it off. If I remember correctly I put stainless hose clamps around the spokes and used a prop puller to apply the force necessary to get it off. It took much more force and time than I expected to get it to pop off. I think I would now use deneema line instead of clamps ,if I removed it again .
Hope this helps,
Pat

Hi all,
Hope to be on board tomorrow and make some photos. Also , I am trying to trace back all the pictures taken during my discussions with the rigger as this has been a long story, everybody trying to convince me to accept the standard solution of a bowsprit, fixed or removable, which I didn’t want.
Back soon with a post

To all,

I have a 1988 Mango and I find that the thru hull which feeds the forward head no longer has a working handle ( it moves but does not allow water in). This thru hull also supplies the anchor wash. Luckily, I’m about to pull the boat for bottom painting and commissioning. Does anyone know the size of this thru hull?

Thank you

Re: asymmetrical spinnaker

Alex! 

last year we bought a "Code 3" on a facnor furler all supplied by Incidence sails. It was no issue at all to use it, I attached a halyard at the top of the mast and just hoist it. We got it at the end of last season so have only used it in light wind. We can sail from around 75 degree apparent wind to 180 degree in light wind. it is designed for maximum 17 kn of wind. I think we will have great use of it the size is 115 sqm.

Hi Eloi,

The bottom one links the mizzen lifting line with the metal ‘D’ fitting at the end of the boarding ladder to support it above the level of the dock.

Re: asymmetrical spinnaker

Alan Leslie
 

Hi All,

Sorry, I don't have any pictures. I haven't been on Elyse since March 2020.
We don't have a furler for our asymetrical spinnaker, we have a hoop and sock for dousing it.
The whole assembly like a sausage is hauled up with the halyard. Then there is a continuous line that is used to hoist the hoop and sock to the top of the halyard and the sail comes out. Dropping it is the reverse. Run off with the main out so the sail collapses in front of it, pull down the hoop and sock, lower the sausage with the halyard.
When we had a code zero type sail it was on a furler on it's own stay. The top end had a swivel to attach to the spinnaker halyard, which was hoisted with the halyard and then unfurled - it was simple arrangement.

Cheers
Alan

Re: Insurance

Mark Erdos
 

Thanks Miles. Good to know.

 

It doesn’t surprise me that it is less than the Jackline policy. I recently shopped insurance and found Jackline to be the absolute highest rates. They were about 30% higher from the next highest quote. Also, they required a full out of water survey (not an evaluation survey) and complete rigging inspection adding substantially to the initial cost of the policy. Also, the policy was due 100% up front and 70% of it was non-refundable.

 

I remained with Topsail. I was with Y-Yacht that merged with Topsail last year. As an OCC member, I get a 10% discount on the premium as Topsail is the preferred agency for the OCC group.

 

 

With best regards,

 

Mark

The underwriter is Travelers.  The policy is significantly less than Jackline, but mine only covers the US east coast and the Caribbean (including Bermuda.

Re: asymmetrical spinnaker

Alex Comer-Crook
 

Alan I would like to see some pictures as well please - especially how you connected the furler at the top of the mast if you have that?

This is interesting to me as I have looked into doing this previously (not on an Amel) and was told by a rigger that I would need to add a crane due to the masthead rig setup and then it would only handle a furling asymmetrical - not a code zero due to the additional loads and potential of getting it caught on the forestay during furling. This was on a Selden mast and the crane part (https://support.seldenmast.com/files/1498459501/597-207-E.pdf) seems to confirm this as it specifically states "Only for use with gennakers, not Code 0 sails".

Thanks,
Alex

Re: SIMPSON SERIES 8 DAVITS - electric shock

Stefan Schaufert
 

Dear Electricans,

thx a lot for your hints and thoughts.

I checked a bonding of the Davits. No bonding to see + more then 5K ohm between bonding and davits, no bonding in the wiring diagram. Motors are with 24V (mostly 26V).
I checked the residual current protection switches. They are working/ ok - and 220V is obviously not relevant.
Inverters are turned off most off the time (only on for hot water, cooking, with generator for washing machine, dryer or dishwasher) and both ALWAYS turned off when using the davits.
No unusual corrosion so far.
No electrical leaks (since appr. 1,5 years). Detector is working.

That is why it is a riddle (at least for me) and interesting to solve it.

Best regards
Stefan
