Hi. Now that I have arrived at the boat with my new, 1 1/2" BSP ball valves that I imported from NZ, removed old one and it is labeled 1 1/4". Is this 1 1/4"BSP ??? Are 1 1/2" used in any other locations? Thanks

Ours is in the same place. It's carved on a piece of wood that is bonded to the hull.

Safety Security Switch

fishtong1 <mpsusman@...>
 

Hi All, Thanks for the numerous responses to my security switch issue. Unfortunately I have been unable to locate it. The previous owners of my Sharki were unaware of the existance of these switches, so I guess that I will shelve the search for now. Cheers


Maramu in Hong Kong?

Dave_Benjamin
 

Are there any Maramu owners in Hong Kong. I have a contact there who is interested in Maramu's and thinking about traveling to buy one but would like to get a feel for what the boat is like before he buys airline tickets. I'm going to encourage to join our group here of course.

We recently replaced our engine mounts with parts from Vetus. Amel can also supply these parts.
We also replaced the Flex coupling from the transmission which was the cause of our vibration. Vetus does supply this unit as well as Amel. Amel has made some changes (What's new) but the Veyus part works. Same cost from either

Hello,

First of all I would like to introduce ourselves. Since last summer my
wife Renate

and me (Gerhard) are proud owners of the Santorin #119 "NOMAD"

This group helped us a lot to get many detailed information about the
yacht.

NOMAD is now for the winter in Greece and is waiting for some renewals.

I would like to change the vibration engine mount and need some
information.

What are the main characteristics of this parts?

Where could I find suitable replacements?

Thanks a lot for all the information here.

Re : [Amel] Security safety switch

Serge Tremblay <laetitiaii@...>
 

Most, if not almost all yacht have a switch that controls electrical connection to the motor circuit.
 
As a member indicated, one of the risk is that a ignorant crew may put the switch off in order to stop the motor. If the motor circuit is not equipped with a relay that closes fuel access to the motor, the risk is that the alternators that are thus switched off may be burnt since alternators continue to generate their own current (throught a small trio of diodes) to energize the rotor and produce high level AC to the large diodes while not being connected to a reference limiting voltage. There is however a solution. A pricey diode commercially sold under the name Zap-Stop. It works and will protect the alternator in such event.
 
Many years ago, i tried to built my own protection diodes, but it is more simple and economical to purchase those commercially available, at least in North America.

I'd want to make sure nobody could accidentally trip that switch underway as it would likely blow out the diodes in the alternator.

I can't vouch for all Maramus but can say for certain that ours (#104) doesn't have a switch like that. If there was one it most likely would be on the positive power wire to the key switch on the engine panel, or the wire from the key switch to the starter, which both run from the back of the panel briefly through the autopilot compartment and then down to the engine room.

Thanks for your reply. I agree that it would be fairly easy to add such a switch in the AP cabinet. Not sure if I'll install one or not.

Subject: [Amel] Security safety switch

 
Almost all of the engine start disabling switches I have seen have been located in the area where the steering and autopilot are above the galley.

Hi to all members.
Great to become part of this forum. While speaking to the owner of another Sharki passing through this way, I was told that all Amels (Sharkis ??) are ftted with a cut-off switch which prevents the engine from starting, presumably a security feature. He said that each yacht would have one located in a different location. He showed me where his was. I am wondering if this is the case of was my leg being yanked? Anyone know?
Thanks

Hi Danny

Thanks for the reply. That is where the cut off switch which I was shown, was located.

Happy new Year and fair winds to you
