That sounds like a great idea, Eric.  Get in touch with Gary on Adagio and see if that's something we could incorporate into the new website.

The process of developing a "parts catelog" by hull number can be something that can be done as people place orders for those parts.  

Amel has to have some idea that this will begin to get more difficult as time goes on.  

Maybe it is something that one of us can develop via app or a cloud service that we can keep a parts inventory with the pictures, part numbers, and perhaps source.  Might even be a good way to share  modificaitons along with where to get some of the parts.  Ideas?

I would like to add a thank you to bill for the offer.  It is appreciated.  I do value what you are trying to do to keep the good name of Amel and all the help you offer the Amel community.  I do try read your posts as much as I can and learn something new everday.  I do respect your input.

Bill,

Thanks for the info on the marina, as it will save us a few bucks. We are having the same issue with our coupling as Will Stout on Anni B True,'and are hoping to get it correctly diagnosed and repaired in Martinique. 

I was hoping we would have the opportunity to meet, and it sounds like we will overlap by a week in Martinique. See you soon.

Hi Eric,

I saw you were in Guadeloupe and was hoping we would catch up with you. We left Deshaies this morning along with Rascal (SM40?), and are anchored near Pigeon Island for a couple of days of diving. After that, we will keep migrating south with a plan to be in Martinique on 15 April to have a couple of things looked at by Amel. When are you heading back to your boat, and where will you be headed next?

There is a switch at the bottomside,
looking like a half-moon, that you need to slide back to
front in order to turn the unit on and off.

There is a switch at the bottomside, looking like a half-moon, that you need to slide back to front in order to turn the unit on and off.

Hi Alexandre,

 

Yours is very different from mine. I think the previous owner may have replaced the original since it is 110v and works off the same outlet as the TV. Sorry I couldn’t help more.

 

 

 

With best regards,

It seems to me that our problems

communication with Amel are tied up with our
expectations

that Amel functions like other manufacturers who sell
repair

parts.They function differently, for the reasons
outlined

below, and if we understand the way they work, we may

prevent a lot of frustration.Most manufactured

items (from I pads to cars) control the parts they use
with

part numbers. Typically, boat manufacturers do not have
part

numbers, they depend on descriptions and product
knowledge.

Having part numbers sounds logical but using part
numbers

requires that the manufacturer has a sophisticated and

disciplined system for controlling part numbers,
changing

them as engineers make changes and cross referencing

interchangeability (e.g. we made the screw longer but it

will fit where we used a shorter one before) just to
mention

some of the complications of part numbering..That

part number infrastructure is costly but is justified
when

many people need to use the information (e.g. a car
maker

with many plants, models and customers) but is difficult
to

justify when there only a few people involved (e.g. a
boat

manufacturer).Boat manufacturers, typically, have

very basic part controls, depending instead on the
knowledge

of the employees to clarify the details.Manufacturing
people

call that "tribal knowledge".When we

communicate with Amel we need to allow the "tribal

knowledge" to do its job. Alexandre's recent

"order" is a very good example. An Amel
employee

looking at the photos and arrows would readily identify
the

parts he needed. To me, a manufacturing and

parts distribution guy, this seems really inefficient,

awkward and time consuming but it is the Amel world,
whether

we like it or not.Although I understood all of

this before, Alex's order spelled it out in the Amel

format. I now understand why they did not reply to my last
E

mail. Thanks Alex, I will try again with something a
lot

more like you did.. Actually, I am in awe of

Amel being able to operate a repair parts operation
under

these rules. I wouldn't want to even try.

Good
evening,
the
purpose of keeping the external spinnaker halyard aft of the
starboard top shroud is to prevent it from getting caught by
the genoa furler.The
halyard is set aft of the top shroud, above the second
spreader, and firmly attached to the guardrail (close to a
stanchion). To prevent the halyard from chafing on the steel
shroud, you could install there a PVC split
tube.
Happy
sailing.
Olivier.

Hello Eric,



I am having trouble to visualize… any way you can take
picture?



Regarding plastic sleeves, I was told it was not good for
the standing rigging and removed most of mines.

What is the Big Cap Stay?

Alexandre,

when we received Kimberlite, that spinnaker

halyard was brought aft of the top stay

and

secured to the ring on the rail and the other end was
tied

off to the mid ships cleat and the balance of the line

coiled and tied to the rail. Make sure you have a
plastic

sleeve on that part of the stay.

 

Speaking of plastic sleeves,

what have all of you been using for the big cap stay?

 I can not find anything this side of the Atlantic.

Fair Winds,

Eric SM 376 Kimberlte

the purpose of keeping the external spinnaker halyard aft of the starboard top shroud is to prevent it from getting caught by the genoa furler.
The halyard is set aft of the top shroud, above the second spreader, and firmly attached to the guardrail (close to a stanchion). To prevent the halyard from chafing on the steel shroud, you could install there a PVC split tube.

Happy sailing.

Olivier.

Hello Eric,

I am having trouble to visualize… any way you can take picture?

Regarding plastic sleeves, I was told it was not good for the standing rigging and removed most of mines.
What is the Big Cap Stay?

Alexandre,
when we received Kimberlite, that spinnaker
halyard was brought aft of the top stay
and
secured to the ring on the rail and the other end was tied
off to the mid ships cleat and the balance of the line
coiled and tied to the rail. Make sure you have a plastic
sleeve on that part of the stay.
 
Speaking of plastic sleeves,
what have all of you been using for the big cap stay?
 I can not find anything this side of the Atlantic.
Fair Winds,
Eric SM 376 Kimberlte

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Engine exaust Santorin Vagabundo

Olivier Beaute
 

Good evening,

I replied directly to Antonio.
The Super Maramus, Santorins and 54 have the same kind of through-hul fitting for the main engine wet exhaust hose: a tube made of GRP where the hose is set inside (or outside, see below) and glued with silicone compound.
In addition, the Super Maramus (probably since 1995) and the 54s have an anti-return flap located in a stainless steel box, right before the through-hull fitting. For these boats, the small piece of hose that connects the stainless steel box to the through-hull may be attached on the outside of the tube, with hose clamps. The box must be bonded to the zincs (yellow/green circuit).

I confirm that this system is very reliable.
It seems that on Antonio's Santorin, the GRP tube has been removed (WHY???) in order to install and glue the hose directly through the hull.
Now the original GRP tube has been removed, I advised him to install a regular stainless steel through-hull fitting as this may be easier to have properly done than the original glassed tube.
Bill, the piece of PVC tube is there because it is used as a support/frame while building the GRP tube and bonding it with the hull. The system is strong because of the GRP, not because of the PVC.

I strongly advise all of you to keep the system as it is, even if your mechanic wants to change it.

Cheers.

Antonio,

The original design on all Amels for many years is as you describe it, except that you did not mention that the flexible hose is reinforced from the inside with a "PVC type" of pipe. You probably did not notice that.

Just because someone says something should be one way, does not make it right. If I were you, I would trust the original Amel concept.

I hope this helps you.

Good Morning,
Yes Bill, in my installation there is nothing !! No thru-hull fixed to the portside, only the tube inserted into the hull and sealed (taped) with a lot of silicon and sikaflex.
Probably this happens when the previous owner changed the engine in 2007 BUT the work was followed from VOLVO dealer in Canet en Roussillon !!???!!  I don't know IF this is original concept or so on....but is so far from my safety idea.

So there IS a thru-hull fitting, in the standard installation, it is just made of fiberglass.  Nothing wrong with that. Its a good system.

The original poster needs to understand what to look for.  IF he is wrong in his description and the fiberglass insert is missing he has a problem.

This is standard on the santorin and not a pproblem .Ive monitored ours for the last 10 yearsits still the original hose.25years old. As its Supported by a fibreglass sleeve on the inside add the fact that there is no metal reduces corosion and possible damage due to a bang. AMEL ENGINEERING..

It seems to me that our problems
communication with Amel are tied up with our expectations
that Amel functions like other manufacturers who sell repair
parts.They function differently, for the reasons outlined
below, and if we understand the way they work, we may
prevent a lot of frustration.Most manufactured
items (from I pads to cars) control the parts they use with
part numbers. Typically, boat manufacturers do not have part
numbers, they depend on descriptions and product knowledge.
Having part numbers sounds logical but using part numbers
requires that the manufacturer has a sophisticated and
disciplined system for controlling part numbers, changing
them as engineers make changes and cross referencing
interchangeability (e.g. we made the screw longer but it
will fit where we used a shorter one before) just to mention
some of the complications of part numbering..That
part number infrastructure is costly but is justified when
many people need to use the information (e.g. a car maker
with many plants, models and customers) but is difficult to
justify when there only a few people involved (e.g. a boat
manufacturer).Boat manufacturers, typically, have
very basic part controls, depending instead on the knowledge
of the employees to clarify the details.Manufacturing people
call that "tribal knowledge".When we
communicate with Amel we need to allow the "tribal
knowledge" to do its job. Alexandre's recent
"order" is a very good example. An Amel employee
looking at the photos and arrows would readily identify the
parts he needed. To me, a manufacturing and
parts distribution guy, this seems really inefficient,
awkward and time consuming but it is the Amel world, whether
we like it or not.Although I understood all of
this before, Alex's order spelled it out in the Amel
format. I now understand why they did not reply to my last E
mail. Thanks Alex, I will try again with something a lot
more like you did.. Actually, I am in awe of
Amel being able to operate a repair parts operation under
these rules. I wouldn't want to even try.

I see it. It's just quick to write a review out of

What other manufacturer cares for the purchase of spare

it, you need the very least spare parts immediately.

I know it also months in advance
