Nothing like that on SM243,  Tom.  The only place I know where all aft cabin lites are together is at the 24V panel.

Hello Alexandre

Yes,  on the 24v panel the lower right is on. I have saloon lights but aft cabins have stopped?

Good afternoon Chris,

Have you checked the 24 vols panel?

Is the lower left disruptor (breaker) ON?

Hi All,



We have lost lights only in the aft cabin of our SM. I have
looked for

any circuit breaker for that area but can't find one.
Does anyone out

there have any clues to help me find it as I know they are
all hidden

away in exotic places.



Thanks

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] message from delivery captain input

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good afternoon Olivier,

I am reading with lots of interest all your detailed explanations on the fuller…

If you don’t mind, I do have a question about the rivets.
What are they for?
Meaning why were rivet used instead of bolt? Are they supposed to break under certain load?

On mine, I noted that the 1 is missing (red arrow) and 1 is loose (orange arrow).
Pictures on: http://nikimat.com/genoa_furler_rivet.html

I have never put a rivet… so not familiar with the process.
How critical short term? How easy to put back? Any special size/lenght of rivet?

Thanks in advance.


Aussi différemment, j’ai une question sur la TVA… il semble que depuis que j’ai acheté mon voilier en 2012, la loi a changée.
Je suis Suisse/francais et techniquement resident fiscale de la metropole (alors que j’habite a temps complet sur mon voilier, mais utilise l’adresse d’un ami en France).
A l’époque j;’ai acheté le voilier en Martinique (TVA non payée). Il ne fallait la payer que si l’on entrait dans les eau européennes.
Maintenant on m’a dit que si l’on va en Martinique, Guadeloupe, St martin et St Bart. on risque de sérieuse amendes si la TVA n’est pas payée.
Donc 2 solutions ne pas y aller ce qui serait dommage (mais ne justifie quand meme pas 20% de TVA) ou l’acquitter… A moins qu’il y est une autre solution?
Si vous ne savez pas, peut-être pouvez-vous me recommander a quelqu’un qui puisse me renseigner?

Merci d’avance. cordialement, Alexandre

Good
evening William,
I heard
from Bill that your captain is Richard Piller. So, you are
in good hands.This is
the process to repair your genoa furler
issue:-Remove
the stainless steel part that holds the furler at the bottom
(two nuts)-Lift the
genoa/foil/furler assembly with the halyard-Remove
the 2 or 3 bolts that fasten the grey pulley to the furler,
and try to bring the furler down-If the
furler does not come down, then drill the 8 rivets that
fasten the pulley to the foil, then ease the tack rope of
the genoa, then bring the furler and pulley
down-Ease the
standing rigging (mizzen backstays, main backstay, both main
top shrouds), secure the mast head with a halyard, open the
forestay turnbuckle and let the furler go down, out of the
forestay.-Bring
the furler to a workshop in order they can separate the
pulley from the furler-Then you
get access to the famous disc and its
screws-If the
screws are sheared (from corrosion) drill and tap new holes,
and use new screws (with LOCTITE thread glue) to fasten the
disc to its aluminum shaft-re-install
the furler with new rivets, cover the new rivets with
silicone compound (to prevent corrosion)-tighten
the rigging
For the
whole operation, you don't need to drop the
forestay/foil/genoa
Ask me
questions when you do it. When will your SM be in
Bermuda?
Olivier

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] message from delivery captain input

Wow!! Thanks for the response! Boat will be in Bermuda around 4-5 June. Any idea how long a repair like this will take? In other words... Do you think I should have the work done in Bermuda or wait to get back to Boston, MA where she will be staying for the summer. I'm in the office right now but will be back home in the next hour or so. Thanks

Bill,
     Go back and read the message from Olivier Beaute. There is no one world wide with the understanding, knowledge and experience of Olivier regarding Amel.
Those of us fortunate enough to have met him when he worked for Amel hold him in the highest esteem and regard.
His posting to you suggests  the hub and or, the plate where the bolts have sheared would most likely require removal.
I can't imagine how that could be done without releasing the forestay.
Oliver states that it is likely Bebe and Seafever have been modified since your boat was built and therefore are different.
It sounds from your postings, that your delivery skipper is very competent and likely correct in his assumption
 Should you have to remove the forestay, then you may consider refilling the foil with grease and carefully checking the Amel fitting at the top of the foil where it meets the mast.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] ZF Hurth Transmission troubles

seafeverofcuan@...
 

Bill,
     He may be right but I doubt it, especially if you use a salt busting type chemical to clean the heat exchanger out, which is were I came unstuck.
I brought in the "professionals" to clean salt out of the seawater cooled water ways on the Yanmar and all seemed fine.
When I returned to the boat I even pulled the gearbox heat exchanger just to check and sure enough it was very clean.
About three weeks later during a four day passage it let go in the middle of the night and we had no drive.
At first, I thought I had caught a net and was confused when I went over the side to cut it free to find no marks on the hull and no net.
When I realized it was the gearbox I bypassed the heat exchanger and refilled he gearbox, it ran for about ten hours and then gave up.
The dinghy lashed alongside took me upwind for the next 75 miles.
An iron rule ever since on passage, is that the engine compartment is opened  and a laser temperature gauge is used every two hours to check all the temperatures and also you will soon smell if anything is awry.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] ZF Hurth Transmission troubles

yahoogroups@...
 

I have recently read of four or five transmission oil cooler problems. In getting prepared for our Atlantic Crossing, I decided to buy one of the Bowman DC60-XAA with 3367 rubber end caps from the Bowman distributor in Malta. It was 105 euro, delivered. Nice guy - Leonard +356 99499082. Email leobugeja"at"hotmail.com.

He said the biggest failure that that has seen from these coolers is the over-tightening of the hose clamps. He said to be careful because the metal is a copper-nickle and will bend easily if you over-tighten the clamp. He said that these routinely last 20 years.

Hi Gang, 


For some reason, I've been unable to contact Riza @ Emek via phone or email.  Could someone give me the email or phone number of Stefi?  I had them but....


Kind regards,

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] message from delivery captain input

Olivier,

William "Bill" Maffei bought Super Maramu 195. The delivery captain is Richard Pillar, a boat broker and previous owner of an Amel SM.

Bill is new to the Group and sometimes forgets to include his hull number in the postings he makes to this group.

Bill,
     Go back and read the message from Olivier Beaute. There is no one world wide with the understanding, knowledge and experience of Olivier regarding Amel.
Those of us fortunate enough to have met him when he worked for Amel hold him in the highest esteem and regard.
His posting to you suggests  the hub and or, the plate where the bolts have sheared would most likely require removal.
I can't imagine how that could be done without releasing the forestay.
Oliver states that it is likely Bebe and Seafever have been modified since your boat was built and therefore are different.
It sounds from your postings, that your delivery skipper is very competent and likely correct in his assumption
 Should you have to remove the forestay, then you may consider refilling the foil with grease and carefully checking the Amel fitting at the top of the foil where it meets the mast.
