Maramu sail plan

Lance Leonard
 

I am the owner of Maramu #135 (Minerva). We are currently sailing North to Maine from North Carolina. My boat came with a removable Solent stay and a removable stay on the mizzenmast. It is for downwind use only as it’s attachments pintos just forward of the dodger in the area swept by the Main boom. My question is, what sort of sail would I fly there? A mizzen staysail seems to have a different configuration with no stay required.

Hello fellow Amel owners,

We are in Skopelos Greece. The front opening fridge has packed up.
Fortunately we have the deep freeze and the chest fridge and can manage well
despite 7 aboard.
I am pretty sure that there is a leak of refrigerant as the unit gradually
failed. All I need to do is find the leak and have it soldered, vacuum the
system and recharge. In order to do this I need a competent fridge guy.
Does anyone know of someone in the city of Volos where we will go in a weeks
time, or Skiathos, Skopelos who they can recommend?

Kind regards

HI,

Amel suggested removing all the old sealant and replacing it with 4200. So far 6 years no problems.

Hi All
I am in the middle of a mini refit and I’d like to check something with those of you that know better. My Onan generator exhaust seems to flow into a reinforced rubber hose and from that it eventually goes out through the hole in the side of the boat. This hose is siliconed in place. The silicone is perished and the whole setup feels like a forgotten running repair to me - there is no proper thruhull as can be seen from the pic. Is this as it should be and if not do you know what should be here instead?
Many thanks

Thanks Randall,

I have seen that episode, hydronic may be an easier option, much smaller hoses to get around.

Thank you for you comments, we still at the thinking stage at the moment which prompted my asking questions here,

I'm not convinced yet of which way to go, I like air for simplicity, I dislike hydronic because its power hungry with the circulation pump and fans (but does have better temperature control)

I was thinking with either system that I'd run the pipes through bulkheads well above the water line to protect the integrity.

I'd like to know if anyone had done the install and had pictures, I'll investigate also if TW3 has any obvious signs of the path that the fresh air system might have used.

Thank you both for your advice

Re: Is this a standard addition?

Darren Moore
 

Hi Bill and Eric,

We have another transducer in a normal thruhull in the location you mentioned as well which I suspect may be a depth unit,

I'm wondering if the one shown in the photo is a depth transducer mounted in contact with the hull rather than through the hull, (don't want to unscrew anything whilst in water)

I guess I'll have to wait until our next haul out or until the water temperature is well above its current 11 degrees to jump in a see from underneath

Thanks for your help

Hi Bill
Thank you for your reply and for allaying my fears. Your Amel criteria point is well taken. I went through the engine exhaust posts and unless I’m mistaken the preferred solution is to replace like with like..excavate the silicone out, replace the hose if needs be and reconstruct the silicone bung that the hose passes through.
Your suggestion would be the direction I would naturally lean towards however and inclined as I am to keep the boat as Amel as possible I suspect my marine contractor will agree…but we’ll see next week.

Many thanks for your help

Re: Diesel heater install

eric freedman <kimberlite@...>
 

Hi,

I suggested a hot water system -hydronic- not a fresh air.

If you go with the hot air system, there are ways to make the bulkheads watertight. That arrangement came with Kimberlite when I added the fresh air system later converted to hot air.

Darren and Karen,

Running ductwork through a Super Maramu is a very tough task if you are not going to compromise the watertight bulkheads.  Because the watertight compartment design is one of the things about an Amel that is special, destroying it will compromise the value of the boat both to you and to any knowledgeable later purchaser.  

Not saying it can NOT be done, but some skilled engineering and shipwright’s skills will be needed.  Your best bet would be to tour an Amel installation or have someone with a boat where Amel installed the heater to send you LOTS of pictures.  Or as Eric suggests, the Amel “fresh air” system would also be a good model to use.

I am not sure what hull number these options were first offered, but I know that there were factory modifications to the design that made the install easier on later boats.

Good luck!  And stay warm!

Re: Onan Generator Exhaust thru hull

Ron Hynes
 

For what it’s worth, I have a 1976 Amel Meltem and the generator and engine exhaust are combined into a fiberglass “Y” that is fiberglassed into the hull and exits on the port side just above the waterline. I am in the process of re-powering and the new turbo charged Diesel requires a 3 inch exhaust. Since I no longer have a generator, I plan to cut out the “Y” and glass in a new 3 inch tube. I like the idea of a flap on the exhaust to prevent backflushing sea water into the engine and may employ this. The former owner destroyed  two engines when sea water entered the engine from following seas, once across the Pacific and then again across the Indian Ocean before putting in a ball valve. I never liked the ball valve since it reduced a minimally sized exhaust by about 30%. Probably explains why I am on my third lift muffler due to excessive pressure caused by the restriction of the undersized exhaust.

I would look into either doing the same, or look at what Amel did later with 54s as they added a flap to prevent back flow (per my understanding). 
Another option to look into things like marelon or other non corrosive seacocks, that can deal with heat.
