Re: Rocna 33 anchor- does it fits without modification on Super Maramu 2000

Martin Birkhoff
 

Hi Slavko,

as others have already said, I am also convinced that a 33 kg anchor is too light for a Super Maramu. Besides the design of an anchor, the weight is essential. The Bügel anchor and the Rocna anchor are very similar in design. The performance will not differ significantly.


On our circumnavigation from 2004 to 2009, we had a 30 kg WASI Bügel anchor with a WASI powerball and 70 m of Chromox chain. This anchor set up was absolutely reliable and always held. Even in Tierra del Fuego and Patagonia. According to our statistics, which I compiled for a German sailing journal, we anchored more than 300 times on this trip. There were only two critical situations. Once when we anchored on a layer of kelp more than a metre thick, no anchor would have penetrated this, and once because we had made a mistake. 
It is important to know that we ran this anchor set up on a 39-foot aluminium design that weighed around 11 tonnes fully equipped.


When we bought our Mago del Sur, there was no original anchor nor chain on board. We initially took the 70 m Chromox chain and the 30 kg WASI Bügel anchor from our old boat. At the next opportunity, we exchanged the anchor for a 42 kg Bügel anchor from the manufacturer Niro-Petersen. Today we use a 45 kg Ultra anchor on a 13 mm Chromox chain on port side and the 30 kg Bügel anchor with a 10 mm chain on starboard side, as this is the best way to us to arrange the two anchors. The 42 kg Bügel anchor rests in the aft peak as a reserve. So the ultra anchor with the heavy chain serves as the main anchor.


Just as a side note for those who are interested, there are Bügel anchors from other manufacturers, but the WASI is the best in terms of quality and design of little details compared to competing manufacturers.


For a 53 feet Super Maramu, I would definitely recommend an anchor between 40 and 45 kg.

Re: Engine overheating - Amel54

One thing to keep in mind is to make sure that any growth or pieces of shells are cleaned away and do not remain inside the sea chest. I did not do that once and they migrated to the engine heat exchanger suddenly clogging it completely!! It was so bad that the pressure in the pipe increased to the point of blowing out one of the hoses and triggering an alarm. This happened in the worse moment as I was leaving an anchorage in Union Island through a narrow channel between two reefs. My good Ultra anchor was rapidly deployed and saved the day.

Re: Onan Generator Exhaust thru hull

Bill Kinney
 

Ritchie,

When Amel designed their boats they had a number of criteria.  First (second and third!) it had to be robust and safe.  Fourth, it had to be easy to build.  Somewhere further down the list was the ease of long term maintenance.  One of the examples of this is the glueing in exhaust hoses. Of course all rubber hoses have a finite life, and need to be replaced--eventually.  The Amel design is a great system, right up until it is time to replace the hose...

I don't have the specifics of the design of the generator exhaust hose attachment to the hull, I suspect a search through the archives will find some information, although I think most discussions have centered more on the engine exhaust which is more complex. Like here: #19663  

If you end up adding a thru-hull fitting because rebuilding the original system is too complex, use a bronze fitting, be sure it is attached to the bonding system, and use a flush mounted fitting so nothing protrudes from the hull.

Onan Generator Exhaust thru hull

Richie Whyte
 

Hi All
I am in the middle of a mini refit and I’d like to check something with those of you that know better. My Onan generator exhaust seems to flow into a reinforced rubber hose and from that it eventually goes out through the hole in the side of the boat. This hose is siliconed in place. The silicone is perished and the whole setup feels like a forgotten running repair to me - there is no proper thruhull as can be seen from the pic. Is this as it should be and if not do you know what should be here instead?
Many thanks

Richie

Pat,

Intermittent failures can be such… fun.

If I understand correctly, when you have this issue with starting, the blowers do not run as well.  That narrows down the likely causes quite a bit.  

The key switch, or the wiring around it would be my prime suspect, although it could be other things too.  12V power comes from the engine, up to the key switch.  When the switch is “ON” the power is sent back to the engine, and to the relays that turn on the blowers.  If the blowers and the starter are showing common failure, then the fault must be before the wires divide on the positive side, or maybe after they come together on the negative side back to the battery.

Another place to look is the isolating relay in the ground wire.  If that is intermittent in operation, or has bad contacts, to could interrupt the circuit on the return side.  I think this is unlikely, because the blower negative return is connected on the battery side of this. Other than those two, its a matter of pulling and cleaning connections to be sure contact is good.

Key switches on both Volvo and Yanmar panels are not 100% waterproof, maybe a bit less so with the key left in.  A drop or two of salt water inside, and things can get unreliable. I have never disassembled one to clean it, although I have replaced them.

Re: Rocna 33 anchor- does it fits without modification on Super Maramu 2000

Mike Longcor (SV Trilogy)
 

Hi Slavko,

We use the 40kg (88lb) Rocna on our 1990 SM#23. It's a great anchor that has never let us down and fits well on our bow roller. We use with 3/8" G4 chain and no swivel. My advice is the same as others have already said, go bigger, go for the 40kg.

I helped fit the 40kg on another Super Maramu (PITU) earlier this year. It fit well. I don't recall the hull number but PITU's bow roller was different than ours.

We've been on anchor in Opua, NZ since January 2020. The only issue we've had is other yachts dragging into us during strong easterly storms.

We also rode out cyclone Sarai at Big Mama's Yacht Club while in Tonga. Sustained 65kts, gusts over 70kts, our 88lb Rocna didn't budge. This included a 180deg reversal in wind direction as the Low center passed right over us. We did have a second anchor out (65lb CQR) taking some of the strain and reducing veer, but the Rocna was doing the primary holding. A good test and confidence builder that I'm in no rush to repeat :-)

We've used the 40kg Rocna since leaving New England in 2017. We spend the vast majority of our time on anchor. The Rocna got us all the way to NZ and continues to hold strong. Long story short... I highly recommend this anchor.

Cheers,

When the wind blows strong at anchor, it is safe to have an oversized anchor that will not fail. You sleep better at night.
