Re: Maramu engine replacement

Dave_Benjamin
 

Bob,

Our Maramu and a few others that I know of have been repowered with a 75hp Yanmar turbodiesel. If you plan to keep the boat long term it may be worth considering.

Rail Gate for Santorin

Chris Smither <yachtakwaaba@...>
 

Hi there,
   We, hopefully, like our 1990 Santorin Sloop, are both ageing gracefully, and have heard of a modification to the stbd guard rail to create a "gate" above the swim ladder.
  This would greatly ease our cruising for both swimming and dinghy access.
  Has anyone made this change....know of drawings or photos......that they could post, or send a link for us to access???.

Thanks

Mike

Hi all

I appreciate that this is a long shot but we are currently completely overhauling our electrics around the chart table and a wiring diagram/ connections for the Lorenz 12 channel GPS antenna would be really useful at the moment.

As always many thanks

Re: Airco AMEL 54

Craig Scott
 

We have the same AC problem. Have had several communications with the yard about the units freezing up and the only solution to date has been to take the units off auto and set the fans on the highest or second highest speed. When comparing this problem to the CruiseAir units we had on our previous boat (which did not freeze up) Amel said it is because Climea does not have a sensor to detect a freezing up. I suspect they are working with Climea to get a fix for future boats, but I think we are stuck with this.

Having sailed our new 54 first time in the Med this summer I have to express my big disappointment relating to the air-condition of the AMEL 54. All three of the units tend to get icy because they are not able to cope with the normal heat of the Mediterranean summer. Once they are icy they do not produce cold air anymore. It might work up to temperatures around 25�C but not above. Even if you follow the advice of Amel to go step by step to lower degrees it does not work. This is clearly a question of bad design. I never had this kind of problems with the aircons of the Super Maramu � it is bringing some shame on the Amel yard.

Control of unwanted messages

Hi,

Some of you have realized I was lately moderating the messages to all the group.

The reason is that we had started to receive unwanted messages in our email addresses from the forum.

I think I have catched the address that was originating the issue and I am going to moderate just this one from now onwards.

Please, bear with me while I finalize this process. I will restore our group condition to 'unmoderated' as soon as I can.

Thanks and regards

Perfect tool for cleaning the Sea Chest fill pipe and seacock

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

I have had various sticks, rods and pipes that I have used to clean out the Sea Chest fill pipe and seacock, but none of them worked as good as the one that I recently fabricated. You can see a photo and get dimensions in the photo section of this website at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/amelyachtowners/photos/album/1208267126/pic/250648401/view?picmode=&mode=tn&order=ordinal&start=1&count=20&dir=asc

I made it out of a piece of electrical PVC conduit with an OD of about 21.4mm and a bottle brush with an OD of about 40mm. I bent a small loop in the wire end of the bottle brush and secured it to the PVC by drilling and screwing a small stainless steel screw through the pipe, grinding off the tip of the screw.

Really works great. I think it should be required equipment!

Hope this helps some of you.

Best,

Subject: [Amel] Mastervolt Battery Monitor






Aletes (SM2000 #240) has a Mastervolt Battery Monitor. Upon reconfiguring
the settings for a new set of batteries, we lost the display for % of
capacity remaining that showed with the t function. The t function now shows
hours remaining, which is the default setting but not nearly as helpful as
%. The manual has no references to a % function. Does anyone know how to set
up the monitor for %? Or am I misunderstanding the instrument?

Markus,

this is, as you are correctly stating, a common problem of the 54s. I can cope
with it by reducing the temperature in 3 degree steps, as recommended by the

Anchor Cain Super Maramu...HT or BBB?

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

I am looking for answers on SM2k anchor chain.

Here is what I know about the anchor chain on SM #387:
It is 10mm, ISO standard (the inside dimension the long-way of a link is 30mm...if it were DIN standard, it would be 28mm).

What I want to know:
Is it BBB, OR is it HT (high test chain)?

I would appreciate any help you can provide.

Hydranet sails

Dave_Benjamin
 

Please note that Dimension Polyant manufactures two types of Hydranet cloth. One is a crosscut and the other is radial.

The crosscut has not held up well so not too many sailmakers will recommend it.

The radial cloth is excellent, however quite expensive.

We are building sails for a Catana catamaran right now using carbon/technora load path membrane which is more economical.

International demand for Hydranet is so low that Dimension Polyant now only manufactures when they have an order.

Subject: [Amel] Wintering Turkey / Greece


Hi, we are about to winter our boat in either Turkey (Bodrum / Marmaris/ Gocek
area) or Greece (same area) for the coming winter. this will obviously involve
few light repairs and services: engine, whinches, anti fouling, bow thruster
service... since we have no time to be present / supervise and inspect we need a
reall trustable professional boatyard (we also understand it has a cost which is
obvious and ok).
1. Could anyone recommend such boatyard (believe Turkey can ofer more).
2. Is there any 'Amel Special' items you wouldn't trust such boatyard to perform
themselves?
3. are there any special items 'not to miss' upon lifting of the boat?

Thanks

Re: [Amel] NEW SAILS

Lars H. Knudsen <museum@...>
 

I was in Yasmine Hammamet Marine this summer and due to a problem with my
genoa I asked the marina office for a sail maker. They gave me the number
for a Tunisian sail maker who did a very good job for me. This sail maker
told me that they could supply me with sails and was the Tunisian outlet for
Technique Voile.



The number to the sail maker is: (216) 96225151 and it was only two months
ago. Hammamet is around 50 km north of Sousse.

We always had our general work done by Selmar Yacht Service in Turgutreis.
Last year, we were on the hard stand at Yalikavak to have our rigging
replaced by Sound Yachts. We had a major service done on our engine this
year by Tuncar Marine. They are also at Yalikavak and did a good job but
they are reasonably expensive. Our boat was in the marina at Turgutreis when
this was done and we had to pay 15 Euro plus tax per person per day entry
fee because they came from another marina and there were workshops in our
marina that did the same thing.
