Electric Mass -defect

Wolfgang Weber <webercardio@...>
 

Hello to the group,
when testing the electric Mass Defect switch on the board
, the lamp lights up on mass minus switchpostion and turns down after 20 seconds
to off. By the time I have a defect on my AIS Furuno FA50 - no connection =
via LAN.Do you think that these 2 things belong together ?Where to start the
surch for failure ? Disconnect minus on the 24 V board of each consumer one after
the other ? Any preferences ?Thank you very much.

I have a dehumidifier running.  I still have to go to extremes to prevent interior condensation.  Normally in the winter, my interior humidity runs 35-40%.

Hello, this is my first post in this forum. I am not an expert in Dessalator watermakers (most of my work is with Sea Recovery) but I have some experience with the motors used in them. Be careful about who tinkers with the capacitors. Those Dessalator AC motors have two capacitors with different functions (one for starting and the other one for running) of different specs. This is uncommon in many parts of the world, hence it is easy for somone with just a bit of knowledge to make things worse by mixing them up.

The key piece of differential diagnosis is check if the start capacitor is defective. Disconnect motor from pump, connect it to AC power and "help it" start by hand. If it starts then the problem is with the start capacitor.

Good luck
Charlie

Ross, I also do not think you will have a problem with the water in the water tank or bilge freezing. They are both well below the surface thus warmer , plus with the warmth of the interior, should be no problem. I always leave a gallon of water in the sink during the winter and it has rarely had any ice in it and that's with no heat in the boat . The marinas here always have bubblers ( its actually a motor with a small prop ) going to keep open water around the boats and pilings. If they don't have them ,you could buy one for a couple of hundred , hang it from your boat , it brings up the warmer water from down below , it keeps a large area free from ice.
Stay Warm,
Pat SM#123

Hi all, I need some advise as to how I can use my fresh water and grey drain systems over the winter. The harbor will likely freeze for at least some time although they will try to keep the ice broken at the dock. Last winter in a different marina nearby, the boat was frozen solid for weeks but I was not living aboard.  I winterized the heads, fresh water including the water tank and the engine and all worked out fine without damages. I am planning to live on the boat this winter and would like to only winterize the heads (i will use a composting toilet) and engine.  I can run electric heaters and use heat cable around the pumps and water lines that run against the outside hull and keep them from freezing then I just have to worry about the bilge or water tank freezing up. There is a shower at the marina but I would like to use my boat systems up until the bay freezes and I cannot pump the bilge out. Also cooking is almost impossible without running water. My question is could the water tank freeze and crack the keel/hull ? Thanks in advance for your opinions and for listening to my story....

 Ross, a few questions is the marina going to put a bubbler under you boat?
Does the marina keep the water on all winter, most here in the Northeast turn it off.
Having spent a number of winters aboard we generally used the marina showers in winter.
Shrink wrapping is a good way to keep the boat warm and comfortable.  It also keeps the deck cleaner.
We have always used small ceramic fan driven heaters to heat the boat and the Amel heaters as a back up.
In addition WE ALWAYS USED A DEHUMIDIFIER. We kept it in the aft head and let it drained it into the bilge.
From time to time we’d move it up front to dry that end out too.  
Don’t forget to winterize the engine, gen set, AC and water maker in case of a power failure when you are not aboard.
Enjoy the winter.

Hi Jason,

I live in Australia so don't really have that problem but wonder why,  if you want to dry out the air inside, you don't also have a dehumidifier running? 

I'm only asking out of interest as in boats I have sailed on,  we will run one once we get in to dry out the air from wet sails,  gear etc and leave it on all the time.

Cheers

I lived aboard the last two winters near Philadelphia and still live aboard.  I never had any issues with freezing lines or tanks.  I do keep a heater in my engine room set to around 40. I also make sure an anti-ice fan is near my overboard discharge for the grey water. As long as your boat is warm I would not worry about the fresh water tank freezing(I maintain a comfy 64).  

Trust me when I say this..your PROBLEM during the winter will be condensation, not freezing. DO NOT keep anything you love in the cabinets!.  No books, no blankets, nothing that creates dead air space behind them.  You will end up with moldy messes.  I make sure nothing sits within 3 inches of the hull and has air passages on each side.  Buy lots of Damp Rid now, and put one container in every cabinet next to the hull and in every bilge compartment.  A cheap alternative to Damp Rid is ICE MELT(Calcium Chloride).  Also, on days when it is cold and dry outside, crack open your windows to dry out the inside air.  Did I mention that condensation is really bad?  

Have fun living aboard!

Rick,

Not to outdo you , but Hank used to dive on my boat and clean the hull.

He used to have a double ender named hunk of schmit

There are more Hermosa Chicas in Colombia.

Do drop by if you are here in the summer, My boat is at the end of the main dock at HYC.

The easy answer is to contact Hank Schmidt of Offshore Passage Opportunities or WWW.sailopo.com.  A short trip should appeal to many.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Passarelle Wheels.

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Hello Gary,

Sorry to read you lost your wheels on the gangway/passerelle.

I am not sure I can be of good help as mine is 2.7 meter long as opposed as the usual 2 meter one (either an Amel option or done by the previous owner).
Also mine is no longer a boarding ladder, but simply a passerelle or gangway.

The wheels are: 3” 3/4 diameter

I posted some pictures on
http://nikimat.com/passerelle_gangway.html

Good luck to you.

Sincerely, Alexandre

The easy answer is to contact Hank Schmidt of Offshore Passage Opportunities or WWW.sailopo.com.  A short trip should appeal to many.

Hello Aras,

No idea with regard to the bulbs, but with regard to the polish and re-lacquering, great project!  

We had our factory-issue "Naudet" baro and clock, which had rust-like spots below the lacquer, polished and lacquered in Fort Lauderdale about 9 months ago and they look just like new.  The key is that the lacquer must be applied soon after the polishing, for otherwise the brass starts to develop patina soon afterwards.

Thanks Tony and Drew. I have sent him an email explaining the issue. Found another capacitor in the junction box so might well be the faulty one instead of the previous one. Ron

Hey Danny, That's pretty cool, I will make a point of checking the amps during a full moon. The panels today are probably much more efficient than 30 years ago. Hope all is good down under. Regards to Yvonne.

Hi Pat, 30 years ago I put a solar panel on my then 30 foot yacht. At anchor in moonlight it produced enough current to make the bulb in a circuit tester light glow softly.

Hanspeter, Please read my post again, slowly. I stated that I had a wind generator and that it contributed some amps at night. Do not be so eager to point out other's perceived  errors, for haste can lead you to err .

I have a shaft driven alternator on my SM ,I disconnected it when I installed three 140 watt Kyrocera solar panels and a wind gen., before we sailed to the Caribbean . I felt I would not need it, and I did not, and did not want the drag . In six months ,I do not remember ever starting the genset  to charge the batteries , only to run the watermaker or washing machine. We had one fridge one freezer lights ,tv. ,etc. and never did the batteries need charging . The solar panels produced far more power than the wind generator ,although at night it did contribute some amps.

We crossed the Atlantic in January. The battery bank was 100% when we started and remained 100% until we got to Barbados, all due to Henri fitting a prop shaft alternator on the Santorin. But when we anchor we rely on our solar panels to keep the fridge running.
I would agree that solar us the way to go unless your boat already has a water powered generation system.
