Hi Paul,
Whilst on City Island (the self-proclaimed  "Cape Cod of the Bronx ! "), stop by the Harlem Yacht Club - "The Friendliest Club on City Island".  I was the Commodore back before the turn of the century - mention my name and you'll get a free ice cold glass of water and some "sea stories". Guest moorings are available - tell them you want the deep section out by the channel.
They've also got an excellent restaurant which I think has reopened.
Cheers, Craig

Hello Stuart

I am not familiar with the 55 but maybe another 55 owner or forum expert has the answer?

Thought I’d give the thread a bump.

Alexandre, we all felt for you when you lost your boat. And then watched in disbelief at the behaviour of your insurers. Without doubt you maintained your boat at a level few of us acheive and generously shared your knowledge. I wish you well in whatever path you follow from here.

Dear Amel owners, 


It is coming on 3 years NIKIMAT was lost, I am slowly moving on and eventually will use the domain name for another project.  


Therefore, I do not want all the illustrations to be lost, so I put them on a new site called:


www.SuperMaramu2000.com


(With a bit of sadness selecting the pictures) I added a “Tour” (when I took possession of the vessel and completely emptied it).  
Despite many information being missing, I hope future owners will enjoy the pictures, seeing the inside of the cabinets, some of the features, etc.  


The links or page names will remain the same, for example:

If you see dead link / missing pages, let me know (forum or direct email).  


Nikimat.com will stay up for sometime, but start referring the new domain name.  


Note: I have SuperMaramu.com for sale for $100.  


I still keep an eye on the forum and hope to continue to meet and see again some of you.

Re: Dessalator fresh water rinse - leak?

Mohammad Shirloo
 

Hi Stefan;

 

We have the 150 L/hr AC only version. On ours, we simply turn off the unit and then turn down the pressure valve. If we want to back flush, we turn down the pressure valve first and wait for the unit to backflush, and shut down automatically and then turn the switch off. Sorry, but I’m not familiar with the DUO, so can’t be of much help.

 

Happy Sailing;

Thx a lot for your fast responses.

 

How is it possible to avoid the fresh water rinsing? 

It seems to be automatic (DUO D 100).

 

Does anybody knows the brand/part number of the solenoid?

I can not figure it out without dismantle.

Re: Possible damage from transport ships stacks. Has anyone experienced?

We shipped Libertad from Thailand to Turkey using Sevenstar and from Panama to Ensenada using United Yacht Transport.  In both cases we were advised to remove all sails and canvas which we did.  When the boat arrived they were indeed filthy from a combination of soot and misc soils but there was no damage because of the soils.

A quick question if you would. We’re in the midst of shipping our Amel out of NZ with Sevenstar.   Incidentally the delivery skipper encountered the marina manager who relayed multiple horror stories of transport ship’s smokestack ash and embers causing severe burns to sails, canvas sailboat decks etc. Needless to say I was taken aback. This was never discussed in our pregame !!! 
Has anyone else encountered such issues?

Dear Amelians,

today I had a wierd situation with my duo D 100.

After turning it off, it did the fresh water rinse like usual, but did not stop.

I checked for a leak (in the entire boat) but there is no leak and no open tap.

I closed the fresh water valve for the water maker, the rinsing stops.

I opened the valve, then the fresh water pump starts again (with rinsing).

During the process of making water there is no problem, the fresh water pump is not running.

Thus now I have to close the valve every time after using the water maker.

That is possible, but not like it should be.

 

Btw: If I open the fresh water valve for the water maker again (at least) 1 hour later, the pressure is (mostly) stable, no pump is running.

What could be the reason/ problem?
The solenoid (parallel to the filter)?

Thx a lot for your help.

Re: Possible damage from transport ships stacks. Has anyone experienced?

Craig & Katherine Briggs SN 68 Sangaris Tropic Isle Harbor, FL
 

Hi Porter,
Here is Tip #6 of "How to Prepare Your Boat for Transport" from the Speitloff / DYT website: 

"Tip #6:
 Protect the outside of your yacht form (sic) soot, salt, etc. with shrink wrap. If your vessel is too large to cover completely, just stick to the most vulnerable areas such as teak and non-skid surfaces. Also cover all stainless steel and chrome fittings or apply an insulator wax to this exposed metal. If possible, remove and store the windshields."

They then add the sentence: "If you’re transporting a sailing yacht: Remove sails or protect them with covers..."

We shipped ours from Genoa to Palm Beach with just the sails off and canvas removed. 
After pulling up to the freighter for loading in Genoa, we stayed on our boat for the crane lift (exciting!), then got off onto the freighter's cargo deck. We stayed for a couple of hours to button up our boat and spoke at length with the Captain, taking a look around the ship as we had contemplated taking a cabin for the crossing, which in hindsight would have been fun. Yes, every outside surface of the ship is really dirty but the exhaust is as Bill Rouse describes and not belching fiery ash. 

Upon arrival in Palm Beach we did have a few globs of heavy grease from the cranes but the boat was pretty clean. I recall only a few of the boats being shipped had shrink-wrap - mostly the power yachts.

That our boat was clean may have been partly due to being washed off by severe thunderstorms they had on reaching Florida. Good news / bad news:  the boat was clean but we had $100,000 of lightning damage from the EMF of a nearby hit (not direct). The transport insurance covered it but fully depreciates all equipment because you are no longer a "yacht", with "new-for-old" coverage, you are "marine cargo" with a "no betterment" depreciation clause. 

Thus, for example, all electronics, autopilot, radar, etc. were depreciated to $0.00 because they were the original Amel installed 1992 equipment, the damage was in 2015 and electronics are on a 10 year depreciation schedule. We still came out well compensated as they do cover estimated repair labor and I do all my own work. (The estimates were from Palm Beach Yacht Repair contractor$.) 

Caveat Emptor - They do not tell you about the depreciation when you sign up! (It may be buried in the fine print.)  We happened to transit with another sailboat (similar damage - some 13 boats were hit). That boat's owner was an insurance lawyer - she verified that was indeed the case, as, like us, she had assumed the transit insurance would be the same as her yacht policy and she was not versed in the nuances of marine cargo insurance. Btw, the carrier for Speitloff/DYT is Pantaenius, who also had our regular yacht insurance. Our claim was handled very well, notwithstanding the surprise depreciation clause.

Good luck with your transit.

Dear Amel owners, 


It is coming on 3 years NIKIMAT was lost, I am slowly moving on and eventually will use the domain name for another project.  


Therefore, I do not want all the illustrations to be lost, so I put them on a new site called:


www.SuperMaramu2000.com


(With a bit of sadness selecting the pictures) I added a “Tour” (when I took possession of the vessel and completely emptied it).  
Despite many information being missing, I hope future owners will enjoy the pictures, seeing the inside of the cabinets, some of the features, etc.  


The links or page names will remain the same, for example:  

www.nikimat.com/bow_thruster_overhaul.html

becomes

www.supermaramu2000/bow_thruster_overhaul.html

If you see dead link / missing pages, let me know (forum or direct email).  


Nikimat.com will stay up for sometime, but start referring the new domain name.  


Note: I have SuperMaramu.com for sale for $100.  


I still keep an eye on the forum and hope to continue to meet and see again some of you.  


Sincerely, Alexandre
