I can't help with getting new ones but Bill and Karen off Harmonie put us onto these. We use them on all the ports and saved the good rubber disk for future use. Can buy them at the local hardware store.

Dear Amelians,

We have been searching for replacement of the rubber knobs that keep the doors from the front cabin open and that keep the port holes open.
The dimensions are  diameter cylinder 20 mm/ knob end diameter 40 mm.  Thickness of the knob end 5 mm. Total height 21 mm.
See also below photos.

Did anyone found these for sale online?

Appologies, I should have searched first before asking questions...this forum is such a treasure of information.
There is Olaf's document about rudder removal:

Hi. If you look you will find an access hole down through the rope pully. You can access the screws one at a time through this. You need a heavy duty Phillips screwdriver.

Hallo,
I am wondering how to dismantle the electric curler in order to put in the apparently three screws that fix the small grey disc to the motor unit as seen on the foto/video.

I need to sand and repaint in any case, any specific tipps are appreciated, apparently not so easy to paint alloy..

 Living in London, we spent 6 weeks in the Aegean,  (Greece, not Turkey ) last autumn; then June this year and we will spend Sept and Oct afloat as well. The limitation for us has been the 90 days in 180 that we are allowed in the EU, rather than covid.

We got stuck in French Polynesia before the borders closed and are LOVING it here. FP allows the boat to stay for 3 years before import tax is due and us as long as we like on a long stay visa.

 

The area has been relatively safe from covid except for the past few days now that the delta variant is here. We are seeing cases skyrocket. We got our Pfizer vaccines here in April for free and without issue. No doubt we are looking at restrictions in the upcoming weeks but we can live with them. They make it very easy to comply.

I was wondering how much use you have all had out of your Amels in the last year. It is difficult to get a global overview of the restrictions impact on cruisers. Noondite seems depressing. Fiji looks like a bright spot but otherwise my impression is things have been bleak. It would be good to hear any encouraging, positive experiences.

Re: COVID

East coast USA is open.  We're in Maine this Summer and only occasionally required to wear masks, almost exclusively in government-run facilities like museums.  We hope to sail to Caribbean and thru the Canal this Winter, but waiting to see if regulations relax before we set sail.  We got stuck in Antigua last Spring when no country would take us in the Caribbean.  After two long weeks at anchor with restrictions on travel off the boat, and Islanders getting possessive about what little food was on the shelves, we sailed straight back to the Chesapeake.

Most countries that are open now want proof of vaccination AND many require quarantine and/or further testing on arrival.  With restrictions like that, it will be very expensive and time consuming every time you enter another country.

We have our Sharki in a marina in Malaysia. We haven’t been able to get back to her since covid struck. Either due to immigration restrictions or our own decision not to expose ourselves to covid until vaccinated. If we could get back to our boat we would be unable to leave the marina due to travel restrictions in Malaysia.

Actually, though cruisers are allowed in Fiji waters, they have a very high COVID infection rate. 

 

Go there at your risk now

Hey Folks,

Looking for some guidance from the group from anyone whom has installed a higher output externally regulated alternator on their Volvo TMD22.  What brand did you choose?  What drove your decision process?  Any service or fitment issues worth mentioning?

With a lot of patience and some work I managed to install a webasto V50 schiller to replace the 5 individual Clima machines that equipped my hull A55#03; yes I need to move the generator coolant  too.
Now I have 50 000Btu on board- originally I  had only 33 Btu  highly noisy and inefficient .

I have an ongoing saga since I purchased my boat (Amel 55#56). The ac didn't work during the survey so they fixed it which means recharged a leaking unit. It worked for a while. It has a refrigerant leak. I should have made them do a pressure test to discover the leak and negotiated a replacement during purchase.

So, a year later is. I have been struggling to find anyone to even work on climma. This seems to be because the US dealer has no spare inventory or units so everything seems to be drop shipped from Italy and that takes time so techs don't want to deal with customers with broken ac and no way to fix it within 4 to 6 weeks for shipping.

The problem is space. On my 55, the space for the chiller is about 14 inches x 17 inches x 20 inches high. Finding a chiller that fits in that space is hard. Dometic is 24 inches long rather than 17. The original climma cws 201 is 14 x 14 x 19 for comparison. There is 17 inches before the chiller water pump interferes. Finding a chiller that is that compact is difficult. Webasto make a 16k btu unit is the same size. Their 27k is 17 inches and they get bigger from there. Anything bigger than 16 means relocating the chiller pump and the generator coolant tank and the webasto heater pipes.

Right now, unfortunately, the cws 201 is no longer made but can be had with a 2 month delay. The climma dc35 or dc50 would fit comfortably but is double the price.

At this point, I'm about to order a dc35 or dc50 and have it installed at the end of Sept when it could arrive in Annapolis MD. Climma close their factory for August and it seems have zero inventory so they would have to make a dc35 or 50 for me to ship it to me, how they are still in business I do not understand.

Anyway, let's see

Elja,

Do you have the part number of your 24V alternator handy (I am not on our boat at the moment)? A picture of the data plate would be great.  I have a friend on the west coast that works in the custom car business that may be able to help with sourcing.

Matt

Hey, Matt
a question in this direction I asked a few months ago but did not receive eunfold answers in relation to a part number or an exact model .
my own research has not yet produced satisfactory results, since the space for the 24 V Altinator is very limited.
I think it will go only with changes to the pulley.
