Thanks, all for the responses.

I guess we'll stick with the low tech after all, seeing how it's OEM :-)

Our '84 Maramu is almost ready to be launched and I wanted to ask the group
about securing the engine room hatch when it is open. There is no built in
provision for doing so that I can detect. Did the boat come with any system
when built? What do Maraumu / SM owners use to keep the hatch open? We
considered using gas struts but I'm leaning towards the low tech solution of
just running a line from the hatch and tying it off to the mizzen or the
dodger?

Any comments would be appreciated.

Re: [Amel] Amel 54 with a hardtop Bimini

ianjenkins1946 <ianjudyjenkins@hotmail.com>
 

Judy, I forgot to take my camera down with me but the dimensions we used for the Better Bimini are these1. From the forward side of the attachment point on the mast ( to which the bimini tensioner is attached) to the aft side of the aft S/S tube--69cm2.Height from the cockpit sole to the underside of the aft S/S tube--184cm.Similar height under the other two.Heights taken on the centre line of the cockpit3.Distance from the aft side of the aft S/S tube to the aft side of the middle s/s tube--65cm4.Distance from the aft side of the middle s/s tube to the aft side of the forward s/s tube--47 cm5 The forward tube ends up leaning just forward of vertical.
We chose to have a vinyl window as the front panel, between the forward tube and the hard dodger,right across the bimini, with a full zip at the top, allowing us to roll the window up and cover it using the same cover and same turnbuckles as the original bimini.When you stand at the wheel you can put your head through the window space.You will need new, bigger ( higher) side curtains. You will also need to add a horizontal strip onto your drop curtain at the aft end of the bimini. We had a cheap and cheerful canvas job done by an inexperienced guy in Brazil who used ordinary Subrella. It was strong enough for the South Atlantic and a season in and around the Beagle Channel but his handiwork left something to be desired so we had the bimini redone by Veronique at Caraibes Covering in Guadeloupe using that Subrella which is Subrella on the outside but with an impermeable coating on the inside.Its full name was Bainbridge International Seamark, Oyster colour on the outside with a light beige on the inside which is quite soothing in bright sunlight. I don't know how tall you and Bill are but , beautiful though the 54 is, in terms of headroom under the bimini,I rather think that we might now just have the edge ...We wouldn't be without it.

OK, every morning I get up and repeat 3 times, "I will not buy a 54, I love my SM." And we both love our SM and try to keep it in new condition.

I just noticed a 54 for sale on yachtworld that has a custom built fiberglass bimini cover with 2 sliding hatches and lots of handrails. Apparently it can be raised about 6" for extra standing room and ventilation and lowered to seal the cockpit from water. It also has a custom vinyl enclosure to close the back side...really cool..."I will not buy a 54...I will not buy a 54..."

Re: [Amel] Amel 54 with a hardtop Bimini

ianjenkins1946 <ianjudyjenkins@hotmail.com>
 

Judy, the bimini attaches in the same aluminium slot on the fixed, fibreglass dodger as the standard Amel bimini. It may be important to note that our SM is an SM 2000 which already has slightly longer S/S tubes than those built before 2000. After our modification the most forward of the three stainless tubes is a lot higher than the standard one but we quite simply just extended the original tubes by welding extensions on to them--done in Brazil, you can't see the join--actually any competent S/S man ( or woman!) cd do it. The three tubes attach using the same holes at their feet as before. And, should you want to fold the whole thing forward ,as with the original, you can still do so. Why Amel didn't do this in the first place is beyond me, but Henri was a stubborn --and short!) man! I will get some photos to show you but it turned out to be remarkably doable.

Ian and Judy,

I am trying to visualize the bimini configuration you described. As I understand it, your current raised bimini no longer attaches to the turnbuckles along the top of the dodger. Instead, your bimini stands free and has a clear vinyl panel that zips onto the forward edge of the bimini and then (I assume) clips down on the turnbuckles along the top of the dodger.

If my understanding of your bimini is correct, what holds the bimini frame forward and taught? Does your bimini fold down or is it rigidly in place?

I like this concept,but we have a full awning that we use at anchor with the dodger folded down and which provides headroom to a level above the main boom. If the bimini were rigidly in place, we could no longer use the shade awning.

The top of the bimini will now be very close to the mainsheet. This is no problem as soon as you unfurl the main as it lifts the boom well clear. Judicious adjustment of the topping lift clears the main sheet when the sail is furled. We made these adjustments two years ago and I can't tell you how much they improve the ownership of an SM.

We added 13" to each of the SS dodger supports and a see thru panel for over head views and forward views under way and it works. Of course we had a new dodger made. It all works very well. It's been good for over 60 kts and 2 Atlantic crossings.

Re: Amel 54 with a hardtop Bimini

Judy and Bill aboard SV BeBe <yahoogroups@...>
 

Hayden,

I have no direct information regarding the mast recall for the 54. I believe there are photos and message postings on this website.

We are in Puteri Harbour Marina near Johor Bahru. Malaysian phone number +60 14 273 9943, email bill"at"svbebe.com. If you are in southern Malaysia, give us a call or stop by. We will be in Singapore 3 June - 12 June then back to Puteri Harbour Marina.

Best,

Bill
s/v BeBe, SM #387 and keeping her!

Hi Bill,

I have been looking at the same thing... and cringing because
business prevents me from doing anything in the short-term. I love
the fabricated bimini - it is a great idea.

I did read something about a mast problem (or factory fix) for the
Amel 54. Are you aware of this and any idea what it was all about.

I wish I was in Malaysia at the moment. We have had tornados touching
down all around Oklahoma this evening and it is no fun at all. I may
stop off in K.L. next month on the way to Mumbai if I have a chance
to visit my friends there.

Regards,
Hayden




OK, every morning I get up and repeat 3 times, "I will not buy a 54,
I love my SM." And we both love our SM and try to keep it in new
condition.

I just noticed a 54 for sale on yachtworld that has a custom built
fiberglass bimini cover with 2 sliding hatches and lots of
handrails. Apparently it can be raised about 6" for extra standing
room and ventilation and lowered to seal the cockpit from water. It
also has a custom vinyl enclosure to close the back side...really
cool..."I will not buy a 54...I will not buy a 54..."

I hate to advertise for yachtworld, but you might want to look at
this at
