Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Red Light on 24 volt panel

Bill,
Same light just different location. The key is off, engine is off, however the light is still on.

Boat will be hauled tomorrow to check the hull, and then put in a slip for work to begin from the lightning strike near the boat.

Pat,

I don't have one there. Maybe it is the same red light on the lower left of the 24 volt panel on a Super Maramu 2000. If so, it is a warning light that reports that the house bank alternator is not charging.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Yanmar 24 volt alternator make/model

Hi Bill,

Sorry to hear you are leaving BeBe,

It must be very traumatic..

 

UO few questions .

If the little cube relay a 24 or 12 volt relay.

To what are the wires connected?

 

Secondly have  you or anyone else  in the group followed the 2 red wires that come off the Valeo solenoid ?

One wire stops the engine and the other closes the Valeo Solenoid to connect the Battery negative to the engine block,

I have a problem with the wire that closes the ground circuit to connect it to the block. It is a real bear to trace the wire all the way to the engine panel.

 

I am getting annoyed trying to trace these wires and find the open in the circuit.

Yes, Ben. I have been emailing Neils directly with photos, but determined that it is an Amel installed standard 24VDC house battery alternator. Every SM 24VDC alternator I have seen has the optional 175 amp Leece Neville Alternator.

 

Regardless the relay is the same.

 

Sorry if I caused any confusion.

I looked closely at picture you posted .  I have exactly same alternator.  No manufacturers' name is on  it.  just CE Label.  Check closely those small wire connections .

Hi Neils, 

yes the relay is related to the red lamp

maybe you have a faulty relay (unlikely), but its more likely to be the alternator itself and/or the alternator regulator.

I don't recognise that alternator, maybe someone else with a similar vintage boat can help.

Otherwise you need at least an auto-electrician, but preferably a marine electrician that understands  the Amel isolated ground system, to investigate it.

Good luck

Alexandre, if you will not be
using the boat for weeks or months. Place two heavy duty
BLACK/NOT CLEAR garbage bags over the prop and secure them
very tightly with some plastic wire ties on the space on the
propeller shaft between the prop and the Amel Drive. The
water inside will stagnate and with no light coming in,
these two factors will prevent any growth on the prop. Be
sure to put a RED wire tie on the engine start key to remind
you of this program lest you start the motor and place the
transmission into gear. Ask me how I know this. I used to do
this on my demonstration boats if I knew no test sails would
be done for a while, like during August holidays. That is
the best habit the French ever taught me, the August holiday
thing. Too busy this year, maybe September when all the
tourists have gone home will be better.  As has been said many, many times
on this forum, a perfectly clean Autoprop is absolutely
essential for its proper operation. I have experienced
diminished performance and enhanced vibration with but one
small goose neck barnacle on one prop blade.
Really!  Enjoy your Amel, JoelJoel F. Potter/Cruising Yacht

I thought I
should share this (beginner and little embarrassing)
experience to help all the new owners like myself.

Yesterday wanted to do an
engine run, since I had not used it in a month.
Once in gear, I felt more vibration than
usual… (or is it my imagination?)

I couldn’t pass 1350 rpm, then was some black
smoke from the exhaust… &@%#$
A month
ago I easily was able to pass the 1600 rpm…
Off gear, I could pass 1600 rpm (so the engine
is ok…) has to be the transmission or propeller…

Took my pony tank for a
reconnaissance dive.
Was stunned to see the
propeller covered of barnacles…
Last time
I checked, 2.5 months ago, the propeller look like new…
(after over a 1 year of Velox applied to it).

Very interesting in 2 months
in San Juan the propeller so quickly became covered of
barnacles.
Now I understand why my sport
fishing neighbors have their prop cleaned every week…

Put the full scuba gear,
changed both zinc and scrap all the barnacles off the prop,
finishing with scotch sponge.
Most the
Velox was still there, but somehow these barnacles attached
to it.
Also inspect the rest of the hull
which needs some little cleaning… (next project).

This morning, I did the engine
run and was able to reach 2400 rpm (in gear) with no
vibration nor smoke!!!

What
I learnt:
How sensitive is the relation:
“clean prop” with engine rpm.
Some
water will bring lots of growth.
In some
places, Velox will protect very well against barnacles, but
not in some other.
I had zero growth in the
Bahamas, Turks & Caicos nor Dominican Republic.
Now on will dive at least every month to check
the prop, etc.

Hope my
learning experience will help others

Now I understand why my sport fishing neighbors have their prop cleaned every week…

Put the full scuba gear, changed both zinc and scrap all the barnacles off the prop, finishing with scotch sponge.
Most the Velox was still there, but somehow these barnacles attached to it.
Also inspect the rest of the hull which needs some little cleaning… (next project).

This morning, I did the engine run and was able to reach 2400 rpm (in gear) with no vibration nor smoke!!!

What I learnt:
How sensitive is the relation: “clean prop” with engine rpm.
Some water will bring lots of growth.
In some places, Velox will protect very well against barnacles, but not in some other.
I had zero growth in the Bahamas, Turks & Caicos nor Dominican Republic.
Now on will dive at least every month to check the prop, etc.

Hope my learning experience will help others

[Amel Yacht Owners] quick barnacle growth on propeller and performance.

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

I thought I should share this (beginner and little embarrassing) experience to help all the new owners like myself.

Yesterday wanted to do an engine run, since I had not used it in a month.
Once in gear, I felt more vibration than usual… (or is it my imagination?)

I couldn’t pass 1350 rpm, then was some black smoke from the exhaust… &@%#$
A month ago I easily was able to pass the 1600 rpm…
Off gear, I could pass 1600 rpm (so the engine is ok…) has to be the transmission or propeller…

Took my pony tank for a reconnaissance dive.
Was stunned to see the propeller covered of barnacles…

Any chance you could
regalvanize it instead of buying new chain?  If it just
looks rusty without loss of diameter, that might save quite
a bit.  There are a couple of threads about this in the
last few years.  Search Conversations for chain

All,


The best day of our lives was the day that we stepped aboard BeBe. She has been a wonderful home to take us to over 50 countries and sail over 35,000 miles in our journey around the world. We truly believe that we could not have made a better choice and we know that there is no other boat that we would want to sail on this journey.


Part of owning an Amel is being part of what I refer to as a group of likeminded individuals (Cult) that will accept nothing but the best. Many strive to keep their Amels ready for inspection by Captain Amel. I know that we do. The Amel Yacht Owners Group, and especially Olivier and Joel, have been very large contributors to BeBe being ready for the Captain's inspection; and we very much appreciate all of you who have contributed to the group and have helped us.

All great things must some day end and Judy and I believe that leaving BeBe should be done at a high point rather than forced to leave because of illness or the inability to properly maintain our Amel. This year is our 11th year and is certainly a high point after closing our circle around the world.

It is with a huge amount of regret that we have a contract to sell BeBe. However, we know that she is in good hands with her soon to be new owners Dan and Lori Carlson. They are members of the Amel Owners Group and they take the helm in January in the Virgin Islands.

Best,

I especially want to thank Bill and Judy for
helping Lori and I become Amel owners.    We were well on
our way to buying an Amel when much to our surprise and
delight we learned of the opportunity to buy sv BeBe.
 
Lori and I first came
across Bill and Judy's blog several years ago when we
started getting serious about our exit strategy from the
full time workforce and family raising.   Bill and I had a
great conversation about the boats shortly after that and
then about a year ago I joined the Amel owners group to
begin to get a better knowledge of the boats and the
community that owns and cares for them.   And we also spent
a very educational day with Joel Potter this spring (whom we
had also met 20 years ago when we made a first attempt at
cutting the lines).  All that came quickly to a head when
we heard that Bill and Judy were thinking about swallowing
the anchor. 
We had
four intense days aboard BeBe in Trinidad where we agreed on
the purchase and we are looking forward to two weeks of
on-boarding with Bill and Judy when we close on the boat in
January down in the USVI.  We will then be looking forward
to meeting more of you as we are out and about and will
begin to interact more through this forum as we undoubtedly
run into questions.

Re: Dessalator membrane Alternative

Juan de Zulueta
 

I just changed the two membranes but on top of need to change the o rings, you may need to ask dessalator a spare tube connector ( a little pice of metal with 4 o rings). When I removed the heads, I had one of them damaged ( old white head). Now they provide new black heads. You might want to have a spare head available or remove your heads before you place your order to dessalator.
They shipped me all spare parts the same day.

Bill,


 Really sad to read that you are swallowing your anchor, though we shouldn't be--rather we will remember the great joy that you have had from owning an Amel and the huge debt that the rest of us owe you for your extraordinary knowledge and encouragement to your fellow Amel owners, responding to all enquiries, be they the most technical or those from new owners who are asking the simplest questions which may have been answered several times before.


I am sure that everyone will join us in hoping that you will occasionally find time between grandfathering duties to keep an eye on this forum and chip in with your usual sound suggestions.


 All the best,


Ian and Judy, Pen Azen, SM 302, Greece


 


Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Dessalator membrane Alternative

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

OK, I am fairly sure that your Dessalator 60 liter watermaker requires 2 each of the SW302521. That would be a dimension of 2.5" and 21" long.

Maybe another owner with a 60 liter can verify that number, and could you measure the length of the membrane tube?

Earlier, I think that you said that your product water TDS was 200ppm. Is that correct? If so, you do not need to change the membranes.

Lastly, changing the membranes is difficult the first time you do it and you should have an O ring kit from Dessalator before you do this job. 

You might want to check with Dessalator by phone about the prices of the membrane and O ring kit before you buy them in Australia. I understand that their phone support is very good.

You also might want to check to see if they have a rep in Australia...it will cost more, but may be worth it. Download their list of agents in Australia here: http://www.dessalator.fr/fileadmin/agents/oceanie.pdf

There are two Word Files in the files section that you should download. Go to Files and search on Membrane and you should see these files. Download them:

Barry & Robyn,

 

There is one manufacturer of membranes in the world. It is FilmTec, a DOW company.

 

If you know the size of your membranes, you can buy Filmtec membranes from anyone. But be careful as they have a shelf life of 6-12 months depending on temperature.

 

What water maker do you have? If it is a Dessalator 160 liter it takes 2 membranes. If it is this water maker and has white plastic looking end caps, you will need the membranes, end caps and a O ring kit.

 

Get back to me and I can point you to sources when I know what you have.
