    Hi Rick, 

    Sounds familiar, replacing the big hose clamps on the hose of the C-drive top: but still water collecting there.

    In my case the water turned out to come from the aft shower drain.
    In my case I mounted an inline siphon in series with the seacock of the shower drain. That gets rid of any bilge smell in aft cabin and "extends" the hose.

    Hope this helps you,

    Hey everyone we splashed last week after an extended stay on the hard and noticed a minor leak around the base of the sail drive, where the shaft passes through the hull. When I say minor leak, I mean maybe 1/4 cup of water over 3-4 days. There are 2 hose clamps around the base of the sail drive shaft, tightening those slightly had no effect that I could see, the water is still coming in at about the same rate.

    Any thoughts on how to resolve this?

    Don’t know if my experiences can be of any help in this matter but sharing can’t do any harm. . 

    Our pasarella did also very strange, it was going in and out by itself without any reason or touching any button.

    I openend the electronic box in the afterward lazarrette and took the big electrical plug off and on again a few times. Sprayed it with Corrosion X 

    and since that this strange behavior didn’t occur anymore. 

    Perhaps I was only just lucky which such a simple repair but it’s worth the try.

    Thanks, Jose ,  

    Can't beat the Italians for some of their engineering. 

    Many years ago  on a non-Amel boat when a Simpson Lawrence anchor winch ( good Scottish make ) seized a bearing on the fourth time of use someone told me to buy a Lofrans " because an Italian male will never be seen pulling up his anchor chain by hand ! "

     I was delighted to see afterwards that Amel had the same appreciation of Italian marine hardware.

    Bernd,
    On my SN I used a filet knife to cut the sealant of the windscreen/dodger, lifted it with a halyard enough to remove the hatch door. I replaced it with a plexiglass door - fantastic to brighten the main cabin. Removed the sweep so as not to scratch the plexiglass - no problem. See my posts on the subject from a few years ago.

    I am trying to insert the membranes into the tubes, I put a little dish washing soap on the seal as per Dessalator instructions . I have put all my weight on the membranes ,but I am unable to get them to slide into the tube. Any tricks , find a heavier friend ? I don't dare tap them ,in fact they say not to apply pressure on the inner tube. Any tricks to get them in would be helpful.

    Seals for main sail manual furler gearbox

    Danny and Yvonne SIMMS
     

    As promised I checked yesterday and the top seal on my main sail manual furler  gear box is as I remembered 60x45x7. When I got the new one the supplier didn't have the 7mm so gave me  an 8mm. Interesting that that 1mm made the fit too tight and I had to go back to get the 7mm. Very seldom Have I found that measurement to be critical.

    Hi Alan, that is interesting. In all my years the place that the rudder stock seals leak water has finished up has been under the unit on the starboard side of the aft cabin. There is a carpeted cubby hole there that accumulates the leakage. I will be watching the other side with interest now.

    Hi Kent,
    I think the answer is here....
    " There has never been water found in the bilge until a boisterous sail last night, tacking into a 20kt wind. Found at least  10-12 liters there.  It's only barely salty to taste."
    I had exactly this scenario on the way to Tahiti some years ago.
    Water sloshing around in the space under the aft head.
    I tried and almost convinced myself that it wasn't salty, but it was......
    Where did it come from? The seals on the rudder shaft.
    We were on starboard tack in big seas for quite a while and the water pressure from the pounding forced water up past those compressed rings. It then worked its way along the port side under the aft bunk and went to the lowest point under the aft head.
    Tightened up the nut and that stopped it temporarily.
    Permanent fix was to replace the shaft sealing.
    All the best
