DOH! Pat, you are correct. When I said to shut off ALL the circuit breakers if you leave the red handled positive and negative master switches just next to the batteries in the ON position, I should have mentioned ALL EXCEPT THE BILGE PUMP BREAKER IN THE ENGINE ROOM. On every unmodified ( don’t get me started…) SM 53 I have seen, the bilge pump power supply is indeed cut off when you turn off both red handled master switches. And while I expect a happy go lucky Irishman like yourself to generally be cracking wise, regarding suggestions, you know I never have much of an opinion about anything. I’ll alert Joe privately, thanks for the catch.

Joel, I am in the habit of turning off the main breakers when I leave the boat for any time, just feel better about it. That's with one exception , that electric to my bilge pump is also shut off. Is that just my boat or all SMs ? I am accustomed to bilge pumps being directly wired to the batteries . On one hand , I like not having electric running through the boat , but don't like , not having the bilge pump electrified . Thoughts, suggestions , I know you have them .

Hello Joe. All good advice regarding drainage while on the hard. Pat is very correct about a positive bow up angle. Place a level on the cockpit sole and make sure the bubble is floating forward. Otherwise any water that gets inside won’t be able to flow aft to the bilge sump in the engine room. While even more important for longer term storage than the 2 months you’ll be absent, an incredible amount of water can make its way inside the boat during tropical waves, depressions, storms and hurricanes through the anchor hawse and the masts. It is a good idea to get an expanding foam product at any hardware store  like GREAT STUFF greatstuff ‘dot‘ dow ‘dot’ com and fill the hawse hole that the anchor chain goes down to prevent water coming in. It works even better if you separate the chain from the anchor and drop the chain into the chain locker ( and put the anchor out of sight in a foredeck locker for safe keeping ), but you can use the foam around the anchor chain and it will stop almost all the water. Very easy to remove the foam and if you are lazy, a trip or two through the windlass makes it go away. Quite a bit of water can come in through the main mast in a driving rainstorm. Make sure that the small waterway passage (under the main mast inside the boat just overhead and outboard of the forward head ) that goes from the water trap that catches any water coming in from the mast ( all the mast wires for lights and electronics run through this water trap ) that feeds this water to the drain hole that is close to the shower head ( that allows the water to escape into the shower drain pan and make its way aft to the bilge sump ) is open and clear. I don’t know how the seeds the birds ‘expel’ while sitting in the rig end up inside the mast and then into this water trap, but they do and plug up the drain with not good results when the water trap overflows. Here in Florida, we check them monthly on the boats I have for sale or under my care. Yours was clean and clear when you left! If you leave the battery switches on, be sure to turn of ALL the dc/12-24 volt breakers. ALL including the ones in the hanging locker next to/aft of the navigation desk, and all the ones for the winches, windlass, furlers and all the ones in the engine room too. The stories I could tell you after 35 years of Amel adventures would seem too far-fetched to be believed but if the breaker ain’t on, nothing bad can happen to flatten the batteries. Or worse. I’ll tell you over an adult beverage next time we meet. Be sure to test the bilge pump switch for easy reliable operation. It’s a good time to carefully take the assembly for the bilge pump floater switch apart and clean it meticulously of all dirt, grease, hair and other nasty stuff. If not cleaned, this ‘goop’ can harden when it dries if it isn’t getting wet every day, and trap the switch float in the off or on position. Seen it happen twice. Not good either way. Be sure that the boat stands/cradle don’t cover up the cockpit drains ( unlikely but…) or the bilge pump exit .

Now you won’t wake up in the middle of the night and wonder ‘what if’.

Have fun with your Amel!

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Which Autopilot drive Rotary or Linear?

Danny and Yvonne SIMMS
 

Hi Bill, that's the irony of storm sails. In building conditions we can be quite comfortable sailing with the big Genoa part furled, but those same conditions are beyond what we want to face on the fore deck handing that huge sail. A hard call. When having a new 150% headsail made I told the sail maker not to weight the cloth for the moderate winds the full sail would be used in, but for the strong winds it would be used in partly furled. Their first try was way too light and I sent it back and they provided the right weight at their cost.
Cheers

Paul,

We had a new ATN "Gale Sail" on board, but the conditions prohibited bending this sail on to the Genoa Furler. I sold the Gale Sail afterwards...it had never been used. We mostly used about 2.3 meters of the Genoa and about half of the Mizzen for most of the high winds. When winds subsided to about 35kts, we added about 50% the main and more of the Genoa. We preferred to keep the boat speed under 7kts.

Thank you Bill!

That trigger an other question,
What canvas did you use at that condition?
We made very good speed at 30 knots of wind with half the Genua pooled out, but I guess it difficult to have it further furled I got the impression that the top will "fall" out and flog a lot if further furled:

Thank you everyone for the great advice!

I've now got a little more work to do before we leave Provo!

Hi All,


Tracie & I are returning to the States for 1 - 2 months and have had the boat hauled at the Caicos shipyard in Providenciales.  She is secured in their 'Hurricane Section' which has large cement blocks buried about 8' down for their anchors.


My question is; Should the power to the automatic bilge be left on?  There is no power available to the boat while it's hauled. To conserve the batteries, I'm trying to decide if I should disconnect all of the power at the batteries via the two large red handles or should they be left on so that the bilge can operate?  What happens it the boat gets a large amount of rain during a storm or hurricane when it is secured on dry land?


I know that while in the water if the cockpit is hit with a lot of water it is supposed to evacuate it rapidly,, but I don't know exactly how this is accomplished.


Thank you,


Joe & Tracie

Latches for lockers and drawers

Walter Kleiner
 

Dear group,
Amel used different turn latches on different models.
Noa (SM2K 436) has Mobella turn latches - good design but there is a tiny device inside the latch which brakes sometimes.
Last time I checked they only sold complete latches - now they sell the tiny device and ship worldwide.

http://www.onmar.se/door-locks/spare-parts/novibra-turner

 

I´ll put a photo of the latch used on Noa under the photo section.

Kind regards,

Re: Leroy Somer Outhaul motor

Walter Kleiner
 

Alan,
if you are good in silver soldering and don´t get the cable out you could solder the new motor cable to the old one. If you stick them together like two opposite paint brush, it will suck the silver in and you get nice clean solding. Plus vulcanic tape and heat shrink, it it durable, safe and easier to fit under the white cap compared to heavy duty crimp.
Cheers,
Walter (Noa SM2K 436)

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Dry dock bilge usage?

Patrick McAneny
 

Joe , Your cockpit has two large scuppers aft of the engine compartment lid , look and you will see them. They will quickly drain any water entering you cockpit on land or sea. However you should always have the yard block up your boat so that it is slightly lower in the aft than the bow . Most any yard would know to do that , but I don't assume anything.

Hi All,

Tracie & I are returning to the States for 1 - 2 months and have had the boat hauled at the Caicos shipyard in Providenciales.  She is secured in their 'Hurricane Section' which has large cement blocks buried about 8' down for their anchors.

My question is; Should the power to the automatic bilge be left on?  There is no power available to the boat while it's hauled. To conserve the batteries, I'm trying to decide if I should disconnect all of the power at the batteries via the two large red handles or should they be left on so that the bilge can operate?  What happens it the boat gets a large amount of rain during a storm or hurricane when it is secured on dry land?

I know that while in the water if the cockpit is hit with a lot of water it is supposed to evacuate it rapidly,, but I d on't know exactly how this is accomplished.

Thank you,

Joe & Tracie

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Dry dock bilge usage?

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Unless I am mistaking the rain will go through the cockpit drainers (not in the bilge).

Hi , have no experience in this issue. My humble
ignorant  opinion.  Based on the mango not sure where the
sm has  the main sea chest. Loosen the the lid so water can
leak out. But not completely open so bugs can't get in.
Just a thought.

I know that while in the water if the cockpit is

rapidly,, but I don't know exactly how this is
accomplished.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Dry dock bilge usage?

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

I think that you know the answer to your question...but, if not, review these facts:
  1. That is not really a bilge pump, but rather a gray water sump pump.
  2. Unless something is very wrong with your boat, the only likely thing that could add water to that sump are:
    1. water coming in through the opening in the deck for the chain because the chain locker drains into the sump
    2. condensation draining from a dehumidifier that you might have running while you are away.
  3. The gray water (bilge) pump will not use any current when it is not pumping
  4. Look under your boat and find the two large holes beneath the cockpit. They go directly to the gutter around the engine room hatch. They are hard to find topsides, but are in the aft side of that gutter. Your cockpit will drain.
  5. Unless you have a bad battery in the bank, they will hold most of their charge until you return.

Hi All,


Tracie & I are returning to the States for 1 - 2 months and have had the boat hauled at the Caicos shipyard in Providenciales.  She is secured in their 'Hurricane Section' which has large cement blocks buried about 8' down for their anchors.


My question is; Should the power to the automatic bilge be left on?  There is no power available to the boat while it's hauled. To conserve the batteries, I'm trying to decide if I should disconnect all of the power at the batteries via the two large red handles or should they be left on so that the bilge can operate?  What happens it the boat gets a large amount of rain during a storm or hurricane when it is secured on dry land?


I know that while in the water if the cockpit is hit with a lot of water it is supposed to evacuate it rapidly,, but I don't know exactly how this is accomplished.


Thank you,

Hi , have no experience in this issue. My humble ignorant  opinion.  Based on the mango not sure where the sm has  the main sea chest. Loosen the the lid so water can leak out. But not completely open so bugs can't get in. Just a thought.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Which Autopilot drive Rotary or Linear?

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Paul,

We had a new ATN "Gale Sail" on board, but the conditions prohibited bending this sail on to the Genoa Furler. I sold the Gale Sail afterwards...it had never been used. We mostly used about 2.3 meters of the Genoa and about half of the Mizzen for most of the high winds. When winds subsided to about 35kts, we added about 50% the main and more of the Genoa. We preferred to keep the boat speed under 7kts.

Thank you Bill!

That trigger an other question,
What canvas did you use at that condition?
We made very good speed at 30 knots of wind with half the Genua pooled out, but I guess it difficult to have it further furled I got the impression that the top will "fall" out and flog a lot if further furled:

Ian, thank you, good to know the response level you used , we just changed our course computer to the S3G, the earlier one only had three levels not to much to choose but now 9 levels.

I bought one last year Alex.  Not on the boat, so can't tell you where or part number.  I'll see if I can find it and let you know.
Having 5th eye surgery today, so might be a few days.
