Re: Running cables between Engine Room and Battery Compartment

Jamie Wendell
 

Dean, I faced the same dilemma. The only answer is that you have to break out the epoxy seal and then replace when you are complete.
I saw no other way to route big battery cables but as you show.
Sorry - I wish I could tell you otherwise.

Running cables between Engine Room and Battery Compartment

Dean Gillies
 

Hi Brains Trust,
I'm back on board after almost two years!
Starting the install of my new LFP system and I need to run some new cables (Data/signal only) between the batteries and the engine room. I know that this has been a difficult step for others. 

I would love to hear some advice on ways to do that. Is there an alternative route to following the DC power cables under the floor level? (Distance of run is not a problem).

If I have to follow the existing DC cable route, any advice on how to do this without damaging existing cables?

Picture of potted DC cables under the floor is attached.

Thanks

I will install it temporarily.

Are there any other substitutes that are a little friendlier to salt water and are a better pump than the March.

I did find a Calpeda model BCM22/1/A-R. It will work but it is really overkill for this system.

Any other suggestions?

Re: AC pump form Super Maramu

Hi Eric,

 

I think I was one of the first to post about the March pumps. They were recommended to me by Coastal Climate Control (the US dealer for Calpeda and Climma) when we sailed the Chesapeake Bay in 2015 as a lower cost alternative to Calpeda pumps. And, I agree they are not as robust.

 

My March pump is now 6 years old and has no issues (the first pump shipped was defective and failed within 3 months. They replaced it). There is some corrosion on the non-stainless steel housing screws. I hit them with some Corrosion-X once in a while. Otherwise I am happy.

 

I also like the fact the March pumps have no metal in contact with saltwater. I have always questioned Amel’s use of the Calpeda pumps which is both grounded and connected to the ship’s bonding system. I viewed this as weak point but will readily admit I don’t know enough about it to comment further.  

 

BTW, doesn’t the Calpeda pump also have open windings? It has been a long time but if I recalled correctly the end is open where you have to turn the screw if it gets stuck.

 

 

With best regards,

 

Mark

Re: Change seacock on a sharki

INUS - BUSCH
 

Mark, Olivier, Gregory, Johannes, Bill and Gerhard,

thank you all for your contribution, very helpful. Finally it turned out to be an easy job: Remove the old one and put in a new one. The trick is to use an anaerobic sealant, before one has to clean the surfaces very carefully eg finally with acetone. Applying the sealant and let it cure overnight, than one can fix the tubes. But it only works for metal seacocks. This s the sealant that was used:

Dear forum,

on my Sharki the seacock of the toilet-out by the time has become harder and harder to open, now it is stuck in the closed position.
From the foto it seems possible to remove the whole valve by unscrewing it from the GRP reinforced shaft. Is this the right way? And is it possible without destroying the shaft? It would be great if somebody who has undertaken this job can give me an advice how to change this seacock.

All the best

Mainsail batten specs Amel 54

To all

I want to replace the mainsail battens.

I have checked previous forum threads and found three different dimensions, all for SM, and fiberglass made:  

                                20mm x 6 or 7 mm (#40407)
                                1 x  ¼  inch  (#30106),

                                1 ¼ x 3/16 inch (#5088)

Does any A54 owner happen to have the correct measures and maybe the material they are made of? Is it even or gets thinner towards the upper end?  I have the OEM Hydranet main sail.

 

Thank you

Hi Nick,

don´t worry about the final last night in Holy Wembley….England is second winner. Be aware, it´s a play.

Just for your information: in Patmos there is a regular Volvo Penta dealer/ service located:
Patmos Marine, phone +30 224 703 1903, mail: kamitsisperos@.... ( info from Volvo dealer locator). May be this is more directly than Partheni boatyard.

Hi Ulrich,
I have not yet ordered the part as we are on the move, but maybe the boatyard in Partheni will accept it. I need to ask them.
In Patmos we spent a night in Grikes and went up to the Chora for dinner. Now anchored two bays north of Scala, waiting out the Meltemi. The forcast predicts light winds for a few days from Saturday, maybe even a west wind. So we plan to make it up to Ouinoussa near Chios. From there the Meltemi tends to be a bit less violent but we probably go to Lesvos and then Skopelos and Sciathos. After that we will have any Meltemi behind us.

Recently replaced the Calapeda with the Iwaki MD70RT-220 50/60 Hz, magnetic drive pump, 1” ID hose inlet x 1” NPT M outlet.  It has an internal cooling circuit that keeps the motor cool and provides plenty of flow to the A/C units.  I re-drilled two holes in the original base plate and replaced the rubber vibration isolaters.  It has a slightly smaller foot print, draws less power, and no electrolysis problems.  This pump is also used by other marine A/C suppliers.

Nick,

HDI Marine Ltd www.hdimarine.net manufacturers exhaust elbows by casting in one piece using the stainless steel investment cast process. It should be a buy one-time item and is usually significantly cheaper than the OEM elbow. Many A[mel owners have purchased from HDI and HDI is a preferred vendor of Yacht School.

HDI has the following items:
Volvo TMD 22 OEM Part #3582512 HDI part #AD
Yanmar 75 & 100hp 4JH3 Part #129671-13552 HDI part #L3

Do you know the number of the D3-110 elbow? I think it is part #21192127.

Jeff Krause sent me his D3 elbow which I sent to HDI to duplicate.  I never heard back from HDI. Possibly this part is impossible for HDI to make. I will follow up today with Hailey Wilkerson, Director of Marketing, 971-255-9139, hailey@.... Anyone else needing this part may also want to write Hailey.

Since replacing the turbo heat shield I can now visually inspect the exhaust elbow.
To that end I am no longer in blissful ignorance.
As shown in the photo the weld is corroding. Hot exhaust gas meets cold sea water. I do not think failure is imminent but clearly Something needs to be done.
I believe it is stainless steel as it is not magnetic. Not sure of the grade.
I see various options:
1. Buy spare gasket or make one and remove the whole elbow and if still sound have the welds ground out and repaired
2. Buy a new one for about £500 
Ouch seems excessively expensive, typical Volvo rip off
3. Have a new one fabricated in stainless.

Does anyone know what grade of stainless is best? 
Has anyone been down this avenue? Know of a good fabricator?

hello Nick and Bill and all other Amelians, are interested in this parts….

genuine VP part number 38073053 is correct and confirmed.
OEM part costs in Germany incl. VAT is 370,00 Euros.
> Have a look on the website from Carl Baguhn in Hamburg, main VP distributor in GER.


Hope this helps. 
@ Nick: shipping from Hamburg to Greece…peanuts by DHL or FedEx.
