Hi Patrick,
Glad you managed to finish your repairs. 
On the Zeus 3s plotter you have an alarm output on the power cable, it is the blue wire, max 1 A for a buzzer or with a relay you can switch what you want. 
regards,

Hi Bernd,

Having been in NZ for quite some time, the City of Sails should be named Bay of Islands. 160 kms N of Auckland. 

Named “world’s best cruising ground” by NatGeo.

I had not thought about this before this post ,we set an anchor alarm with our AIS when conditions warrant it  . It just occurred to me ,had I set the radar alarm when three rental catamarans  anchored 100 yards upwind of me ,it may have woken me before the 47 ft. one drug down on me two yrs. ago at 4 am.. I am now finally getting my repairs finished next week. I lost 11/2 yrs. of use and hundreds of hrs. of work and aggravation ,because Dream Yacht Charters rents boats to anyone with a credit card. To date they have refused to reimburse my ins. co. Panteanius or me my deductible ,even with a signed document by the other guy excepting full responsibility. I will in the future have my radar on if there is a rental cat anywhere around.
Is there anyway to amplify an alarm on a B&G plotter?
Thanks,
Pat

Michael, 
You will find useful info on this site and answers to most any question you may have about an Amel. Once again ,I am sorry you missed out on the group buy of the inserts ,it worked out very good for everyone,the inserts produced were as original equipment and we each saved a lot of money on shipping and taxes. Perhaps down the road there may be others interested in a group buy , if that occurs,I will make sure that the die is made available .

I remember they had to make a special purchase of materials to produce the inserts ,I doubt they would want to do that for one unit ,unless one owner was willing to cover all the associated costs , at that point it would be cheaper I would think to purchase the insert directly from Amel.

Hi Michael,
 The new rub rail inserts, in an off-white, are fantastic. Frankly, they look better than the original brown (imho). As Pat notes, installing them does seem a bit more difficult than the originals, but totally manageable. (I removed my old ones every few years and it took about 2-3 hours to reinstall - new ones took about 8 hours over two days.)
Pat -  didn't the original 11 orders cover the cost of the die such that you were totally reimbursed? I don't understand why Michael would need six others to make it practical?
Cheers,
Craig

Re: Lofran windlass electro motor

Be very careful. When I wanted to change to a 1500w motor, I noted that the shaft was bigger for the 1500 motor. No fit for my gearbox

Luckily, the motors are easy to repair

Re: New Zealand

CARINA HAMMARLUND
 

Hi Robert,
I can warmly recommend Riverside Drive Marina in Whangerei!!! We stayed there 2018/2019 and it’s the best yard we’ve been to. It’s managed by two fantastic guys, Karl (his dad started the yard way back) and Moe. They have a team of very competent companies that can help you refit your Amel, and they did a very good job with ours.  Whangerei is a very good place to stay since the town is full of marine companies. At Riverside drive you’re not forced to use “the yards companies” to do work on your boat, which very common in other yards.
Many of the other yards in the area is also dependent on the tide to when the can haul your boat out/launch it but Riverside drive can do that any day of the month.
Another big plus is that it’s easy to find somewhere to stay during the refit if you don’t want to live aboard. We rented a little apartment on walking distance (4 minutes walk from the yard) while we stayed on the hard.
We have many friends that have returned to Riverside Drive over and over again for years while cruising up/down to Fiji. Beside doing a excellent job with the boats Karl & Moe helped to created a strong cruising community and staying there was like being part of a big family.
if we ever come sailing that way again we will definitely stay in Riverside Drive!

When there is a will, there is a way.

Here is a message from Anna Eriksson on Vista. They were in French Polynesia (where we are and where we met them) and got permission to enter New Zealand. They are not the only ones who have been approved to sail to New Zealand.

Hi!
Here comes a short update from New Zealand for those of you thinking of coming here in the coming season. We have just talked to our agent, see the contacts below. It is still closed and will remain so until April next year, he thinks. Vaccination is hopefully done then.
The only reason for coming here is still for refit & repair - it needs to be crucial - concerning sails, rigging, engine. The sum is set to 50 000 nzd (around 30 000 $). You need to specify some contracts, even though the costs are estimated. Marina fees are included, but not insurance. Covid will not count as a reason.
In case you want to come - apply in good time - now it is fine even if you sail in October. There is a long waiting time even here and the bureaucracy is big. They have just changed so you have 3 months to come here once you got the visa. So checking out in Bora bora is a great option.
Technically you can apply yourself, but we thought it was well worth the money to have an agent. It was very insecure and it took us 3,5 months to get the visa (in the middle of November).
The Immigration trust the agents and Duthie have got yes for all, except one big boat that obviously lied. Duthie is working independently and is not taking % of the refit & repair.
All boats enter in Opua - works excellent - and it is easy to find the way into a quarantine ponton. Maybe you are worried about the food control (I was) - in those times of covid they do not enter the boat, but they do ask all the questions from the pontoon and you have to show and leave food that is not ok here.
If you want to stay in the Bay of islands it is a beautiful sailing area. There is just a small shop for food in Opua, so most people buy a car if they stay there. There are several marinashops and craftsmen in Opua.
Our plan A was to stay in Auckland - it is not that easy - it is super-crowded and one is not allowed to live in the boats.
So we did as many have done before us, went to Whangarei. It is up in a river for 2,5 hours and lastly, you have to get a bridge open for you. In the practice once a day at high water. In Whangarei, there are several marinas - Town basin, the biggest closest to the small town, and Riverside Drive marina - a small family-owned marina close by. There are a lot of craftsmen around and prices seem to be a bit lower than in Auckland. We have changed the standing rigging for a very good price for example.
Hope this was helpful.
Wish you all a great season in FP.
Kind regards from Anna on Vista - an Amel supermaramu
