  Ivar, We were in Roccella Ionica last year - no problem with depth and they were dredging the entrance, which should be done by now. We stayed several days with no charge because they had not "formally" begun operating as a marina. Only water was avaialble at the slip (no electricity) . We understand they have now begun regular operations and are charging - rumors were they were quite reasonable but I don't know for sure.

Jim,

If Bruce Winship bruce"at"shelterbaymarina.com is there, then yes, I would have complete confidence that he will get the work done. At the time we were there, we got to know Bruce fairly well. He is a cruiser who is also a building construction engineer. He supervised most of the construction of Shelter Bay. When we were there, Bruce had a yard crew of about 6-10 employees and he also had several independent marine mechanical and engineering firms that he used as subcontractors.

Email him and see what he says.

Also, if you will email me your email address (bill"at"svbebe.com), I will send your email address to the owner of Shelter Bay and get him in the loop for you.

Best,

Bill

Hi Susan,

If you are still looking for your Super Maramu you may have a look at sv-jonathan dot de. It is all in English.

Good luck

He was part of this group, but I have not seen him post anything in some time. You can contact the owner at agav8ter"at"yahoo.com

I found his Amel at http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1999/Amel-Millennium-2000-Super-Maramu-2078128/Wilmington/NC/United-States

Also, it goes without saying that the absolute expert in the US on Amels is Joel Potter...you are talking to the right person.

Re: [Amel] Dynaplate cleaning

Anne and John Hollamby <annejohnholl@...>
 

Hello Serge, Dynaplates are goldplated which is why they are so expensive. Assuming that you have not damaged the plating and probably even if you have Hydrochloric acid diluted should do the job. Our US friends call it Muriatic acid. Try a small area with a small paint brush first.

Good luch with it, John, SM319

Subject: [Amel] Dynaplate cleaning



A very hard calcification has grown on my Dynaplate ( SSB ground plate) over a period of 18 months. I have removed most of it with a chisel, a wire brush set on a grinder and sand paper. But i am afraid to proceed further with these tools since they would damage the rugged surface of the plate.

Any suggestion for use of an acid, such as oxalic or other product or mean?

I am curious about such growth, I thought the copper content in the plate would naturally protect from any marine growth!

Note: As far as i know, the plate is well connected to my antenna tuners, since my SSB radios do operate efficiently (radio use is about on hour per day).
Possibly a connection of the goundplate throught small condensers could reduce any electrical leak in the plate, but i have never seen this setup on a Amel, since the large zincs anode on the rudder seem to absorb all electrolysis.
As an added info, my boat was not connected to shore power for more than 10 days during the period of the growth.

Hi Eric,
 I placed the grease nipples centre of the bulge in the housing for the output shaft from the motor which puts the nipple to apply grease to the main load area directly over the interface between the gear on the motor shaft and the gear on the drive. The nipples thread is less in length than the housing thickness at this point.

Question





Hello Drew, The gypsy on mine is also worn and I have ordered a new one from
the Maltese Agent. The old one has these numbers on it;- 0.10 ,P30 and
3/8HT. I might add that I severely damaged the layshaft and the keyway
grooves on the gypsy about three years ago because I had failed to keep the
clutches well greased. This resulted in the chain running out at high speed
uncontrollably until the clutch seized up and stopped turning thus doing the
damage by trying to stop the chain instantly which it could not do thus
jumping violently.
Luckily we were in Croatia and a local engineer managed to open the housing
after using various heating methods until he finally used oxyacetaline so
that he could remove the layshaft and gypsy to cut new keyways and make new
keys. It was a brilliant job and we were lucky to find him with the aid of
the local charter boat manager.

Hi,
The IMTRA site has very good pdf documents including a Chain Wheel chart http://www.imtra.com/product/anchoring_systems/lofrans/lofrans_horizontal_electric_winches/tigres/lw400an_1200_1.htm There is also a good parts list and owners manual. These are worth saving to your laptop. There also also some good postings in their Knowledge Base. The link is for the 24v but they also have page for the 12v.

Hello Drew, The gypsy on mine is also worn and I have ordered a new one from the Maltese Agent. The old one has these numbers on it;- 0.10 ,P30 and 3/8HT. I might add that I severely damaged the layshaft and the keyway grooves on the gypsy about three years ago because I had failed to keep the clutches well greased. This resulted in the chain running out at high speed uncontrollably until the clutch seized up and stopped turning thus doing the damage by trying to stop the chain instantly which it could not do thus jumping violently.
Luckily we were in Croatia and a local engineer managed to open the housing after using various heating methods until he finally used oxyacetaline so that he could remove the layshaft and gypsy to cut new keyways and make new keys. It was a brilliant job and we were lucky to find him with the aid of the local charter boat manager.

I hope this helps,best wishes, Anne and John, SM319
