Mark and everyone else,

 

Check this out on eBay.

I think this is the same plastic momentary switch that is at Budget Marine. It is US $6.99 with free US shipping:

I believe that you can replace each of the push button momentarily ON switches with something similar if you cannot find the rubber covers. I have seen these in several marine chandlery shops.

I will be in Budget Marine In Trinidad tomorrow and will check the size of their item AAA/10206 and AAA/10208 which appears to be an exact replacement.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Connector at the water pressure Tank

You have a pipe “elbow” that for some strange reason was drilled and tapped to turn it into a pipe cross.  As you discovered, this is not a good idea. 

You need a real standard pipe “cross” and a reducing bushing or two to fit the pressure gauge, pressure switch, and tubing fitting.  It could also be done with two tees if a cross is hard to find. Two “tees” might also give you some flexibility in orientation that will make things easy to assemble.

This isn’t something you need to go to Amel for.  Brass or PVC would be suitable choices for material and your corner hardware store will likely have the parts.

Yes, it looks modified, but I cannot tell for sure because I have the AMFA 66B, which is different from what you have.

Thanks Bill for the prompt response, as always.


The main issue I currently have, is the brass fitting at the supply side of the water pressure tank. Some one has just taken a 90 degree brass fitting, drilled two holes on the sides and tapped the brass fitting in order to attach the water pressure gauge and the water pressure switch. As you can imagine, the thickness on the side of this fitting only allows for two or three turns to be tapped which have now stripped.

I do have a marked up picture of the existing that I have e-mailed to Amel. I had also downloaded the picture you had posted from your Super Maramu and have sent both to Amel. I will post these pictures for reference.

If some one has an unmodified Amel 54 fitting and schematic diagram, it would definitely help

Hi James,

I've heard that attending to this should not be ignored, and that thereafter regular maintenance every ? years to re-bed the railings to minimise the chances for moisture ingress.   Like the bow-thruster or windlass, if not attended to, then it can be really hard to make right.  But with pre-emptive maintenance, things go easier.  The reason is that the rails are affixed internally to an iron sub-structure, and if moisture gets in, then the results are inevitable.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] sea wather from bow-thruster

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

James,

Great! I am glad that you found the patience. Your bow thruster may have been one of the more difficult ones with all of the layup time. So the next time someone says that they are going to do something foolish, I am passing the baton to you to tell them what to do.

Service every two years is sufficient...no need to service every year.

One thing that you may want to consider is obtaining or making an Amel in-the-water tool for removing the bow thruster in the water. I have one and have used it once on BeBe and several times with other Amels.

I think it may be possible that your bow is too low in the water...that it is overloaded. Can you completely rule out this possibility? If not try to answer these questions:
  1. Can you tell me what the water level is inside the bow thruster cavity Measured from the top to the water)? The only way that you could tell this is to have the bow thruster removed when you are in the water.
  2. I assume that you cannot answer 1 above. Can you tell me if the orange stripe along the water line has ever been moved and painted higher?
  3. Can you measure the distance from the bottom of the orange stripe to the water about 1 meter aft from the bow entry in the water. And measure the distance from the bottom of the orange stripe to the water where the engine exhaust is located.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Connector at the water pressure Tank

Mohammad,

Since Amel installed at least two different systems, it may help if you start with a photo of yours or the brand of the pump. It may even be possible that none of what you have is Amel installed because possibly the previous owner changed everything in the fresh water system.

Also, if you will go to the Photo section of the Amel Group website and search on "fresh water" you will see 4 or 5 photo albums of what you are asking for. Here is a link that will get you there including the search: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/amelyachtowners/search/photos?query=fresh%20water

On our Amel 54, it appears, that the original fitting at the output of the water pressure tank was replaced with another make shift one that has now failed. This would be a brass fitting that attaches to the water pressure tank's output and would have the water pressure gauge, the water pressure switch and the water supply line attached to it.


It would really help if some one can e-mail or post a picture of the actual factory installed unit so I can see what the original fitting looks like. Also if some one can assist on the best place to source this fitting, it would be greatly appreciated.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Lofrans Windless rubber caps for control button

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Mark,

At Budget Marine, the AAA/10206 looks to be, and measures exactly the same as the Amel installed switch. It is made of marine brass and plastic and sells for about $24USD. The Trinidad Budget Marine did not have one in stock here in Trinidad, but did have the AAA/10208 which is a plastic version for about $3.50USD.

I emailed this to the group and I cc'd you directly with a photo of the AAA/10208 side-by-side with an Amel supplied "used" switch. I think that if I were you I would buy 6 of the AAA/10208 and replace the entire switch when the rubber gets old. I will upload the photo for the rest of the group in a few minutes.

Is there anything else I can do for you?

Bill,

I haven’t taken this apart yet to see what I need. I was hoping to get the replacement from Amel. I can’t imagine it will be too hard to find. But, I started my search looking for Rubber Switch Covers. That did not prove productive (hence the post). It think it may be a good idea to replace the entire switch when servicing the windless in a couple of weeks.

The windlass buttons are a stock item with Vetus.

I was recently told by Maud that Amel no longer stocks the rubber covers for the Amel modified windless. They do have another option but are out of stock and I must purchase the entire kit including the electronics.

 

Does anyone have a source for these rubber covers (preferably in the USA). Click the link below for a picture:
