Re: [Amel] Which boat do you recommend?

Look@iPadRing.net <look@...>
 

Kent,

In truth it seems you're correct and I've been looking at increasing
larger and larger boats realizing they just don't have the room to fit 7
comfortably. There are other considerations as well but they needn't be
addressed as yet.

To Amel's compliment is the reputation of a boat very well made and durable.

I hope you can make it work. Sounds like a real challenge, but great fun and a great family adventure.

I'll be interested to hear what others have to say.

Hello everyone,

I'm not an Amel owner....yet. But I'm looking for your advice. There
are 7 of us in my family (5 kids under 12) and we're looking for an Amel
(ketch) that'll comfortably fit us. I've looked online at various Amel
53 Super Maramu's which look most suitable to me. However, we do need
sleeping space...that's for sure.

Amel's look like a true and strong blue-water cruiser and the 53's are
probably the length we'd need.

Our cruising plans? Well, let's just say we'd like to be able to sail
around the world in a well built boat.

Oh, a new Amel is out of our price range.

Do you have any suggestions or ideas? I sure would like to hear your ideas.

Earl

Re: Replacement for Metal Furling Rod

Re: Replacement for Metal Furling Rod

seafeverofcuan <seafeverofcuan@...>
 

Hi Denamarie,
the item you are referring to is called "horns" and Amel normally have them in stock. However it is easy to get one, or even better two, made by any local engineering shop.
I had one made in Antigua in January for us $65.
It has always baffled me how they get bent, I have noticed once or twice that my spare halyard
tends to twist around the port one.
I hope this is of some help.

Re: [Amel] Replacement for Metal Furling Rod

ianjenkins1946 <ianjudyjenkins@hotmail.com>
 

Hello Denamarie, If the rod you mean is one of two that stick out of the swivel, its purpose is to allow the swivel to function by means of the rod resting against the mast. The rod is threaded where it passes through the wall of the swivel and is held in place on the swivel by a nut which tightens on the thread. It is therefore easy to remove and replace. You might try removing the existing bent rod and carefully straightening it.
If you can't do that, you can buy a replacement from Amel, but any similar piece of stainless, threaded , rod can be cut to size and used, with a nut tightened either side of the hole where the rod enters the swivel swivel. I did this on our SM. The rod doesn't take much load when it is resting against the mast. Fair winds, Ian and Judy, Pen Azen, SM 302, Ragusa , Sicily

Re: [Amel] 230v kwh digital meter

Eric Freedman
 

Bill,

If you plug into the USA. You will find that both legs are hot. If you
measure the voltage between the green/yellow (ground ) in the USA you will
find 110 volts on each wire.

It is exactly the same as running 220 volt items here without the white
neutral.

The best translation for blue is is neutral and not to be confused with

Eric,

Wiring (On Meter: LOAD IN, LOAD OUT and NEUTRAL)----
1.) Locate the brown wire from the main breaker to breaker panel
distribution LOAD terminal block. Remove the end of the LOAD wire (brown)
at
the terminal block.
2.) Attach the above brown wire to Load IN on the meter (it was long
enough
for my location of the meter).
3.) Add a similar gauge brown wire from the Load OUT on the meter to the
terminal where you remove the wire in step 1.
4.) Add a Neutral (blue) wire from the ground terminal on the meter to the
breaker panel distribution NEUTRAL terminal block.

The one I bought is 50htz. I am not sure how/if it will work on 60htz. I

3.) Add a similar gauge brown wire from the Load OUT on the meter to the terminal where you remove the wire in step 1.
4.) Add a Neutral (blue) wire from the ground terminal on the meter to the breaker panel distribution NEUTRAL terminal block.

The one I bought is 50htz. I am not sure how/if it will work on 60htz. I could not find a 50/60htz

Bill,

Does this work on 50 and 60 HZ and do the wires run through the unit or have
to be cut to install?

Subject: [Amel] 230v kwh digital meter





I have always wanted to know what the cumulative 230v power consumption is
on BeBe, especially at a marina where you cannot see their meter.

I found the following on eBay for less than $20USD delivered. I installed it
and no longer have those questions.
