Re: Autohelm 7000 low battery

I first came across Corrosion X in Trinidad where they told me that the
heavy duty Corrosion X was the only thing that would prevent rust on the
travel lift. I have used it ever since. Last week it brought a water pump
back to life. Unlike WD-40, Corrosion X is a good high pressure lubricant.
I agree with you that the stuff is great.

Eric,

The course computer on BeBe (#387) is connected to 24v source. The clutch fuse on the course computer is plugged into the 12v slot because all Raymarine drives have a 12v clutch. The rotary drive and the Linear drive on BeBe are 24v motors and 12v clutches. # 376, Kimberlite, may be different with a 12v Raymarine course computer because you special ordered all Raymarine instruments.

I have photos of both pumps which I will post in "Dessalator Water Maker Service" in the photo section of this website in about an hour. I will attempt to get you sizes of the fittings attached.

I did find out that the specs of the pump are: 230v 300w 900liters/hour and 3.5 bar of pressure and that a new pump from Dessalator is 802 Euros...that may make you feel better about your repair.

Hi Bill, we use a Surflo controlled pressure pump before the high pressure pump it has a rate of 3.2 gal per min or 192 per hour at 30 psi.. with an auto shut off if pressure goes to high. That should do the deed for you. It was an easy install out of the salt water manifold into a 30 micron filter and to the pre-high pressure pump to the high pressure pump. No starvation to the high pressure pump just clean water? salt water. We also use a 10 micron charcoal filter before from the fresh water tank before the fresh water pressure system to be very sure we get NO chlorine into the membrane.
Good luck..

Re: [Amel] Anti foul

Conn Williamson <connwilliamson@...>
 

Yes Richard I googled up Trinadad and found the price in the US was Xy as well. I also found a site here from the government pesticides & vetinary authority recalling all Trinadad antifoul, it diddn't say why, but I have a fair idea. We pay around 200-250 per 4liters for anti foul paint. Altex 5 is a New Zealand product.

Amel Marmu Questions

Philip
 

Hello,

My wife and I have an accepted offer for a 1985 46' Maramu Nirvana Ketch. It has mostly original equipment and rigging, including the electric furling on the head sail and main.

This weekend we will be doing the sea trial and then the survey next week.

We would greatly appreciate any advice about things to look for during the sea trial and survey.

Are there things you, as owners, wished you had checked in advance? Are there maintenance or refit issues we should be prepared for?

As long time and fairly long distance cruisers we are quite taken with the Amel, even if this one does not work out we will certainly look for another.

Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.

-Phil

Hello,

We are contemplating replacing our Clima AC units for Cruise Air, due to the fact that we have 2 compressors that are shot. Does anyone have any experience replacing the Clima units with a different AC? Any responses would be helpful.

Hey, I just realized that you were asking for a 220 volt pump what I had suggested was a 24 volt pump.. I don't have one with me now but if you look on the "Budget Marine" St. Martin web site they have a number of 220 volt pumps that will do the job. We use one for the AC flow it also has a cooling loop for the pump itself.. Sorry I don't have access to the catalog for more detail

BTW FYI

When we last anchored in CC in April MOORSECURE had just laid 6 moorings in
the east side of the anchorage - that was one days work and we left the
anchorage to go home at 6am the next day so CC could be full of moorings now
:-(
