I recently contacted Allain de Lassee and they indicated they do not insure yachts flagged in the US.

Maramu Insurance

Ian,

I am about to finalise the purchase of a Maramu and am looking to insure her. Could
you let me have details about the company, my search of the web came up with so
much information that it became incomprehensible.

Thank you.

Re: Insurance

Zanareva
 

Dan,

Seven Seas Cruising Association has a number of insurers listed on
their web site. In particular, Bluewater has insured quite a few
members in the past. Check out more at: http://ssca.org/insrlink.htm

Also, the Dashews (who have many miles sailing doublehanded their 60
footer (Sundeer) and 80 footer (Beowulf) were asked about insurance.
Here's what they said in their web site http://www.setsail.com:

"How do you get insurance to sail as a couple on BEOWULF? I have
friends with a Tayana 52 in Hawaii, who are now kind of stranded
because their Lloyds policy requires four crew and the other couple
(the guy actually) wimped while they were all headed for NZ. Or do
you sail bare (which is what I am doing right now as a
singlehander)? -Lesley"
"Hi Lesley: Our policy allows us to sail with just two. It is
written with Cigna, and our agent is Paul Itel at Serve
Underwriters. Paul's number is 805-730-7370/800-537-3738. I know the
availability varies with boat size, equipment, and the experience of
the crew. Good luck--Steve Dashew"

Ian
You are welcome, no sense letting that dog bite
everyone. If I remeber right, in the manual we had it
mentioned this requirment in 1 line with no warnings,
and yes its not really that hard just needs attention
to detail. I dont think its peculiar to volvos though.
I have seen the same thing happen to other makes (VW)
of belt timed deisel engines. I believe it is a
material limitation of the belt.
Good luck and pleasent sailing.

Mr Jenkins
I can not add enough weight to what Joel said about
the Cam Belt, so let me relate a story.
We run 6 generators with this type of motor, all of
them failed from 1050 hours-1370 hours due to cam
belt
failure(change of service contract long story). the
least damage done was one generator simply bent all
the valve stems so we got away with simply
replacing
all the valves. One engine was a total loss and 2
required complete rebuilds, the other 2 were
somewhere
in between.
Admittedly these engines have been runnining
against
the stops for their whole lives because they were
right sized for a smaller project however do you
really want a cam belt failure when you are
desperately seeking all the revs you can get.
It could be worth your while to throw away the 300
hours or so and replace the belt before you go, if
there is the slightest possibility you will exceed
the
1000 hours.
By the way now that we know about the cam belt
sensitivity we have not had another problem with
these
motors and they are going on 7 years old.

Hello Ian,

Joel Potter here. The turbo boost pop-off
valve
really needs A LOT of
requested power to function. To check:

1. Go about 3-4 KTS in reverse
2. Gently go to neutral, then forward to
idle
speed.
3. Wait 3 seconds then wide open throttle
in
forward. WIDE OPEN.

You will see the rod move ever so briefly. The
engine is governed and you
will never get into the boost limit in cruise
power
conditions. Only when
asking for more than you should, like at
avoiding a
crash. Hope this
helps.

All the best,
Joel F. Potter, Hull #400

P.S. Change your cam belt every 1000 hours.
Trust
me, this is important.

I have SM 302 with the Volvo/Perkins TMD22p.
No
complaints after 800
hours,
other than replacing the key switch and the
engine hour meter and rev
counter, both at crazy Volvo prices.Power
output
is fine and I take care
to
open up the revs every few hours to ensure
the
Turbo is properly
exercised.
When the revs are high and the turbo is
really
being used there is a
pressure control valve that opens up if the
turbo pressure gets too
high.As
I understand it the rod attached to this
valve
moves back against the
resistance of a spring.I have been advised
to
move this rod back
manually
from time to time ( with engine switched
off) to
ensure that it is free
moving and it has always been free when I
have
moved it.
However, when I use full revs there is no
discernible movement on this
rod
(
possibly 1/2 mm but it's difficult to guage
when
the engine is flat
out).It
has been suggested to me that as Amel
govern
the output to 60hp the
turbo
pressure doesnt reach the point where the
valve
opens.( this wouldn't
prevent the turbo from working ok as mine
seems
to be)
Has anyone any experience to suggest that
the
rod should or should not
be
seen to move at full revs, and if it does
move
is this a momentary and
occasional movement or should the the valve
be
seen to stay open above
certain revs?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Volvo Turbos

Hello Ian,

Joel Potter here. The turbo boost pop-off valve really needs A LOT of
requested power to function. To check:

1. Go about 3-4 KTS in reverse
2. Gently go to neutral, then forward to idle speed.
3. Wait 3 seconds then wide open throttle in forward. WIDE OPEN.

You will see the rod move ever so briefly. The engine is governed and you
will never get into the boost limit in cruise power conditions. Only when
asking for more than you should, like at avoiding a crash. Hope this helps.

All the best,
Joel F. Potter, Hull #400

P.S. Change your cam belt every 1000 hours. Trust me, this is important.

I have SM 302 with the Volvo/Perkins TMD22p. No complaints after 800
hours,
other than replacing the key switch and the engine hour meter and rev
counter, both at crazy Volvo prices.Power output is fine and I take care
to
open up the revs every few hours to ensure the Turbo is properly
exercised.
When the revs are high and the turbo is really being used there is a
pressure control valve that opens up if the turbo pressure gets too
high.As
I understand it the rod attached to this valve moves back against the
resistance of a spring.I have been advised to move this rod back manually
from time to time ( with engine switched off) to ensure that it is free
moving and it has always been free when I have moved it.
However, when I use full revs there is no discernible movement on this rod
(
possibly 1/2 mm but it's difficult to guage when the engine is flat
out).It
has been suggested to me that as Amel govern the output to 60hp the turbo
pressure doesnt reach the point where the valve opens.( this wouldn't
prevent the turbo from working ok as mine seems to be)
Has anyone any experience to suggest that the rod should or should not be
seen to move at full revs, and if it does move is this a momentary and
occasional movement or should the the valve be seen to stay open above
certain revs?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Sails

Ian,

Thanks for referral. We have about 17,000 miles also. However, it
is our main that has taken the biggest beating as we have motor
sailed into heavy weather on numerous occasions. The luff tape has
been replaced once and the leach repaired twice. Then genoa will be
with us a while.

Stephan,

I had a new genoa made by a friend of Joel Potter's in Fort
Lauderdale. It has a foam luff and in general it was a well made sail
and at a good price. The sail maker's name is Peter Grimm and his
email is peter@s... It cost $217 to DHL it to St Lucia.

Unfortunately due to a change in circumstances, I never got to sail
with the new genoa, but I did ensure that it fitted OK. It is now a
spare on my new SM which I take delivery of on July 15th.

Joel tells me that Peter is very familiar with Amel sails and that
he has made a good number of them for US owners.

As a matter of interest, how old are your sails and how many miles
have they done? I changed my genoa after 17,000 nms of hard sailing,
much of which was in the tropics. I did have the leech tape repaired
a couple of times, but eventually due to UV and wear, the rear panels
became too weak and the lower cross tree fitting proved to be too
much for the material when the genoa accidentally backed one day. I
have noticed that the latest SM's now have a different end fitting
which looks kinder to the genoa. I would like to see then covered in
leather too.

Good luck with the new sails.

for long! Anyone have any ideas about a solution?
