[Amel] Re: SM 93 Ballooner sails & Amel Electronic Manual

Mark Hayden
 

Last year, we scanned the manuals for all the systems, including the Amel documents and schematics and posted a link to an external site where others could download them. I don't know if anyone did and the site I put them doesn't exist anymore. Let me know if there is interest and I can find another place to host the files. We put all the manuals on our laptops and ipad and have found it quite handy to always have them available. The total scans were about 500MB and we only scanned English when there were multiple languages.

cheers, Mark

COMMENT ABOUT THE FILES SECTION OF THIS WEBSITE:
If the Moderator/Owner and/or the author of a files upload can delete what they feel is unnecessary files from the FILES section of this website, we could make some room for some others. Currently Yahoo allows only 100MB for FILES and we are at 97% of capacity.

The PHOTOS section allows us 100GB and we are less than 1/2% of capacity in PHOTOS.

Yahoo only allows either the Group Moderator/Owner or the individual (author) that posted the file to delete the file. I have noticed that there are some unnecessary files that were posted by members who are not even currently active, so it will take the Group Moderator/Owner to act on those.

I have a PDF file of the complete manual for a SM2000 which is
17,200k...fairly large file. Unfortunately, it is too large to add
to the files section of this website which is almost full. This has
the ballooner instructions as well as everything else for a SM2000.

location of life raft

john martin <symoondog@...>
 

Recently there were some posts discussing various locations to put our life rafts, other than where Father Amel intended them to be. It seems some people want quick access to them so are stowing them on deck. I was just thinking about this .... has anyone ever heard of an Amel sinking in a storm ? I'm not talking about sinking on a reef, at a dock, or on a mooring or at anchor... I mean sinking offshore during a storm.

I recently read "Rescue in the Pacific," a book about a group of sailboats who were caught in a ferocious Force 12 storm lasting 2 days in 1994. The only people who died were the ones who elected to abandon their boat and get in their life raft. The Coast Guard recovered that life raft and evidence showed that the crew had been tossed out of the top of it, as the top was entirely torn away.

During the storm, seven boats were abandoned after their crews were rescued, and the rest of the boats (about 30) made it through the storm. Of the seven boats abandoned, two were sunk intentionally by their owners (to prevent a hazard to navigation) and one was sunk (unintentionally) by damage caused by the rescue ship that tried to tow it to safety. The remaining four abandoned boats were eventually found floating and in reasonable condition; one was even found six months later (anchored nicely by the anchor the skipper had thrown in during the storm to act as a drogue !). When they interviewed the survivors after the storm, they all agreed that they did not think they would have survived in a life raft in those monstrous seas and 60-90kts of wind.

I was thinking after reading this book, that if no rescue ships had come and everyone had stayed with their boats, it is possible that every person and every boat would have made it through one of the worst storms in recent history.

I believe that if a skipper is worried about getting the life raft quickly out of its designated locker, the skipper should wait until the time of danger is becoming "likely," then pull it out and lightly secuire it in a position more ready to deploy. Crisis situations rarely occur instantaneously and there is almost always ample time to see an abandon-ship situation develop. In the "old days," before satelite navigation and AIS, situations requiring immediate deployment of a life raft, (i.e., hitting a reef suddenly in the middle of the night, or being brutally crushed by a large ship), were real possibilities, but nowadays, assuming that no-one is completely "asleep at the wheel" and not paying any attention whatsoever, such occurrences should be rare indeed.

On our SM316 we have no problem so I have not the best experience

*But you can try this* : there is an "pressostat" ( in french) that is a
pressure switch that regulate the low pressure of yout AC, normally you
can change the low pressure bys turning a screw.
Try to increase the low pressure*to have the bowling point near 0 or
-5°C* (fan run more quickly and temp of cool air is a little bit higher)

Hoping it can help you

Dear Craig,
thank you for responding and I am happy to know that I am not the only
one who faces these problems.
Actually in the last minute I stopped rebuilding all the outlets of
the three ACs because the experts said there will be just very little
effect compared to the amount of money I would have to pay. Hopefully
the yard will come up with some solution. The idea of some sensors
sounds good because I would not care if the temperature would not go
down enough if the sensor says there is the tendency to get the system
icy; a bit higher temperatures are better than a totally icy AC.

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,

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

replacement gears for mizzen furler

Bob Sarff <bsarff@...>
 

I have my masts down on my Maramu, hull #173, for re-rigging and have noticed that the gears for the mizzen furler are badly worn. Has anyone replaced these gears and if so, do you have a contact for ordering them. Were the custom made or is their a stock gear that works?

Thanks or any advice you can offer.

Do you know if Awlgrip can be applied over existing paint on an older Maramu (1985).  I  have been told that if the original paint is a one part paint then i can not use a two part paint over it with out completely stripping all paint off.  The original paint appears to be a two part paint but I don't know how to verify it.  Does anyone have info on this?

Are you talking about SM mast paint or an earlier model? For my SM 2000,
Amel quoted me the following:

Paint Awlgrip Type 00B006G (White Amel No 3)

Hardener 000G3010 Awlgrip Cat 2

Thinner 000T0001

If the Renault paint matches, then it would sure be easier to obtain
here in Cyprus. Can someone please verify that t does match on a SM?

Pat,

I thought someone once posted the part number of the paint on the
forum but
I could not locate it.

I need to touch up the base of my main mast and would like to use the same
paint.

Eric, You may be correct, Amel may well have used a Renault paint. I
said ,
I just do not have any knowledge of Renault paints and plan to use
Awlgrip
which I am familiar with and think cannot be beat for a boat. I am
sure Amel

could provide info on the paint.

Thanks, Pat

that the bulbs in the navigation lights are burned out. the nav lights are
still in good shape but I cannot find a replacement bulb. the base of the
bulb is bigger than usual, about 19 mm wide. regards,

these bulbs have Double Contacts on the base and the side contacts are
aligned on the same plane / level side contacts.
on the back cover of the nav light is written : mm 193 sn 25w. it is about
19 mm in diameter (3/4inch) Dr Led nor Sailers sam do not carrie them

Rainer, while I have been occupied about how to replace my Motorola Prop

generator, I did not realize that you are asking about the main 24V

alternator. The previous owner of my SM replaced the original Motorola

alternator with a Balmar 65 Amp alternator, Model No. 9024, Serial No. 10713

model, and this has been working without any issues.



Regarding the selection process I found the attached pdf file which may be

of help to you.

Hi john,

Wow that was a fast reply. As your SM is also of '93 and you are looking to

replace your alternator what do you think about the Balmar series 6 24volt

70 amp? Just curios...

I have removed the Motorolla alternator from my 1993 SM. While I am

still



looking for a match, I can easily make measurements for you.

Hello everybody,On my Perkins Prima mt80 I have a 30amp Motorolla alternator



wich I would like to replace with a Balmar 70amp unit. As I'm in the US



right now I would like to by it here, because it is less than half of what



it is in Europe. Unfortunately I don't have the measurements of the



Motorolla with me and here comes my question: Does anybody know witch Balmar



model has the same measurements as the Motorolla unit? Every suggestions are



appreciated.



Joel, your comments are aways a pleasure to read and we all wait for that



book....



Eric, your hurricane story and your seamanship are both incredible....



Yossi, I was looking over 3 years around the world at every Amel for sale



(Maramu and Mango). Finaly I bought a Supermaramu for 145.000.- Euros(the



cheapest I ever heard of) but invested allready 30.000.- and will invest



another 30.000.- to feel confident with the boat.(all the work done by



myself) A seworthy Maramu will cost you 100.000.- Euros, everything else is



a projectboat

Subject: [Amel] Re: Want to buy Amel maramu



Yossi,



Good luck. I think at that price point you will have a project boat needing



a major refit. Perhaps you may want to consider the Sharki. It's very much



like the Maramu except there is no toilet compartment in the aft cabin.



You will find it far more economical to buy a Maramu that has been updated



than to refit one yourself. Our Maramu had approximimately $130,000 USD



invested in it by the previous owner over four years and we probably spent



another $20K ourselves.

I asked Amel to ship zincs for my boat to Tortola, BVI. Is there
an inexpensive way to accomplish this as they quote 230 Euros in
transport charges?
