Hi Bob,
Although not intended for me directly I thank you for a very nice and thorough post. We met some years back in Martinique. We are heading to the Mediterranean this May. I am gathering all the info I can and this helps a bunch. 

All the best from the Caribbean!

Hi Mohammad and Aty,
We wintered at Marina Di Nettuno outside of Rome (not to be confused with the Nettuno Marina in Sicily).  Actually we took Bill and Judy's spot there after they opted for Sicily.  Let me describe it in detail because it is really a fantastic place to winter assuming you are liveaboard.  There is a high speed train to Rome as many people from Mettuno commute daily.  The train passes were €9 round trip, good for 24 hours and included Rome's subways and busses.  We loved it, spent 6 months there.  Despite being a very large marina, there were few live-aboards--only 4 other couples but this was about 7 years ago.  It was reasonable, I think about €400/month including un-metered electricity  and good shower facilities which seemed unused by anyone but us.  We calculated that on certain months our free electricity use surpassed what we had paid in marina fees. We just used small ceramic heaters which, along with the mild weather made for a warm winter.

The old walled town of Nettuno is senic and interesting with lots of restaurants and a large supermarket(s) nearby.  The very beautiful Sicily-Rome American Cemetery and Memorial is a 5 minute walk from the marina.  The train station is very close.  We walked farther from our boat to the marina exit than from the marinia to the train station.  Frequently we would do just one event or museum in Rome coupled with lunch and then return to our floating home--there is something to be said for, say, touring the Galleria Borghese and then being "home" in 45 minutes to binge-watch Netflix for the evening.   You can easily walk or bike to nearby Anzio.  There i a huge weekly market 5 minute walk from the marina.

Thanks, John,
Just so I'm sure I understand, when you say you "cut access from the engine room", was that just cutting access in the "egg-crate" dimpled foam sound dampening material or did you actually cut through the GRP engine room ceiling into the Pyramid base of the chair support?  If so, did you just put a piece of wood (plywood I'd suppose) that was larger than the metal pole base up against the existing GRP with the base on top of it and then glass that in? Did you put some fasteners in first - up through the plywood and into the GRP "ceiling"? Sounds like it may be a good fix that would avoid cutting out the old floor or the existing pyramid base - is that correct?

Thanks Dave. Will follow up. We have spent quite some time in the entire Italian Riviera and Amalfi coasts. That was 7 years ago. I guess you can never have too much time in towns and areas that are more than 2000 years old and have the history of one of the greatest empires that man ever formed. Another good option.

 

Happy Sailing;

Hi Mohammad and Aty, 

 

We quite liked Gaeta Italy.  Put Liesse on the hard there 3 years yrs ago.  Nice beach in walking distance, cute town w great pizza. It s easy to access Rome, Naples, Pompei ( highly recommend if you haven t been yet) by train.  Great spot for routine haulout and storage and although they have marine services we found it somewhat challenging to communicate with them although Jayne Koehler an expat living in Gaeta is (was?) a fixture there for years and was quite helpful.  Again wouldn t recommend for complex jobs.  She had a small ebook ‘Welcome to Gaeta’ which was helpful.  Can PM you her contact info if uou would like it.  

 

Best,  Dave

Re: Anchor Counter - Lewmar AA560 - Sensor Replacement #replacement #solution

Hans Schaidinger
 

Hello Christine and Paul,

 

we had the same problem two years ago and after talking with Amel Hyeres I was sure, that the reason is the sensor. Replacing is a little bit tricky, but not a real problem. Amel doesn’t deliver the sensor, so I ordered at the original Amel-supporter Pochon (www.pochon.com.) The pochon code no was 102490.

 

The link to the cable system you will find after opening the afterward part of the lewmar winch. When it is open you have also access to the fixing of the cylindrical sensor. It is fixed in its body with silicone.

 

Good luck!

Betreff: [AmelYachtOwners] Anchor Counter - Lewmar AA560 - Sensor Replacement #replacement #solution #replacement

 

Our anchor counter has not been working.  The windlass works fine, but the Lewmar AA560 anchor counter does not.  We seem to have narrowed the issue down to the sensor needing to be replaced.  I am hoping someone has done this job before and can advise how big a can of worms I am opening by trying to replace the sensor myself.

Bill,

The original oil pressure sensor for versions A, B and C is 3445696, replaced by model 8151889 (with an adaptor as the thread is different, 14-10) to be bipolar.
For versions D, E, F the original sensor is 21634021, the thread is 16mm and there seems to be 4 connectors. I don't know if it is the bipolar model 8151889 that is installed with an adapter, it would have to see on an engine but access is very difficult without disassembly.

Thanks Bill. Trying to stay North. We did stay in Licata for a couple of years and really liked it. Although Sicily has been getting hit by multiple water spouts lately. Our initial plan of 3-4 years in the Med has already extended to 8. Too much to see, and no rush, but world is a big place and time is short. Who came up with this 100 year age span anyway? Lol.

 

Genova Marinas look fairy interesting and well protected. Anyone stay in Genova for winter or even a transit?

 

Happy Sailing;

If you plan to stay in the water, pick it carefully because some marinas are known to have a significant surge during the winter. I am sure that you know most Amel owners go to di Ragusa Sicily.
