Re: [Amel] 230v kwh digital meter

Eric Freedman
 

Bill,

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

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.

Good idea,

Where did you get the meter?

Eric,

To answer your question, I record the cumulative Kwh reading when I enter a
marina which enables me to track my Kwh usage.

During the past 3-5 years, most marinas we have berthed at charge for
electricity by the Kwh. Most have a hidden Kwh meter or use voodoo to
calculate our usage. In fact one marina in Bocos del Toros had us list all
of our electric appliances and the average daily use. They took this
information and calculated our electric bill. Most electric usage in the Med
is being billed at 0.35 Euro/Kwh or higher, which will bring the total for
electricity to about half of the already high berthing rate.

I thought it was prudent to know what our actual usage is, rather than rely
on some unseen meter which is recorded by someone who does not know how to
read & write.

Best,

Bill

Eric,

Yes, your installation is the reason that about 7 years ago I installed
the
Volt/Amp/Freq meter before the main breaker. I chose to install it inside
the access door. I always check volts and frequency before throwing the
main
breaker to ON. This meter did not give me cumulative Kwh.

In the photo you will see two separate digital meters. The larger meter
was
previously installed and measures Volts, Amps, and Freq. The other is the
recently installed Kwh digital counter.

I have found each one useful.

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.

Hi other then Amel I don't know of rudder indicator source.

Regarding the Auto Helm carefully check the connections at the course controller computer mounted near the servo motor. On this site there has been little success with a wind vain. Also check to be sure you have nothing metal. Ear the course compass.

Hi all,
Only two guestions this time. There is not much left of the rudder indicator cover on the wheel hub, looks like uv degraded the plastic. Is this available in the US or from Amel?
My Maramu came with a 6000 autopilot and the bicycle chain to the hub that I have seen on other Amels. The size of the boat seems to be in the middle of electric vs hydraulic range. Have any of you changed the original system for better or worse? My autopilot now only wants to go to starboard.
Thanks in advance,

Ross,

Although a different machine my NECO had a session of just turning one way. I cleaned the contacts on on the relays in the box on top of the motor and then it worked fine. One other problem on another occasion was a was a wire not firmly attached in the same box. Moral is check it is properly broken before chucking and maybe carry more spares than you would otherwise.

I have a spare emergency autopilot - an Autohelm 3000 that can attach on the wheel if needed and it works ok. I have considiered a newer autopilot than the NECO and would probably look at a linear second system attached at the rudder post and keep the system by the wheel. There are some posts about this here. I think some people may have changed the cables to hydraulic pipes for the steering. That would allow a hydraulic pump on the autopilot but I would stick with cables and an electric motor.

I used "D-section 342 with adhesive, 100 feet ($1.129 per foot), part 342HATS-100, from Clean Seal, Inc.

It is self-adhesive and works great. It was hard for me to clean off the old seal.

What we did when taking delivery was for Anne to get down in the locker so that I could squirt a hose around the seal so she could mark where the leaks were.

Has anyone come up with a solution to positively dog down the bow lockers on a Maramu? I know this has been discussed in the past but the Yahoo search feature is worthless.

Go to a good auto parts store such as NAPA and get door weather striping and glue. Be sure to remove all the old stuff with acetone or similar product to get the old glue off.

Re: [Amel] Bow locker seals

John,

Part of the issue for us is there's no hardware to exert any pressure on the gasket. So the first step is figuring out the hardware then fine tuning in a manner similar to what you've described. I know the 54 has a great latching system with 2 settings, one for in port and one for at sea. I can't recall what's on the SM. Do you have a couple of latches on the locker?

Re: [Amel] Re: Vertical companionway door

john martin <symoondog@...>
 

Eric, There are 2 types of material that could possibly be glued to the door without taken the door off. One is lexan which I have used on hatches before. It comes in a dark smokey color that would cover the door nicely. I think you can get it in 1/16 th of an inch thick. This would bend enough to clear the dodger. It could then be glued to the door. Another product I have used on boats is formica with water proof glue, it is very thin and comes in all kinds of color including wood grain finishes. If all else fails you could find a furniture refinisher to come to the boat and glue a piece of teak veneer on it, very thin. The secret to keeping the hatch like new is not to use varnish. I use sikkens cetol high gloss. It doesn't look as good as varnish, but I never have to take it all off and sand to the bare wood, which causes the delamination. Every year or so I lightly sand the hatch and put on one or two coats. John "Moon Dog" SM 248

On the older boats it's just a piece of wood trim holding the door in place. Remove it and the door can come out without removing the dodger. Is it a molded piece on the SM?

How is your companionway vertical door holding up?
Mine is delaminating. I was thinking of raising it up and cutting it from
port to starboard.
I would then plane 1/4 inch off the 2 pieces and cut a spline into both
halves and glue and screw it together with a connecting board in the two
splines upon re insertion. I would then add a solid piece of 1/4 inch teak
to the front of the door possibly cut in 3 pieces and made tongue and groove
with screws and some glue.
Any other ideas other than removing the dodger?
