Diode in Starter shutoff circuit - Super Maramu

veitm@...
 

Hello All:


Engine does not shut of via key-switch. Traced this to a diode which is Pektron 14 24 394 - I got 3 of those in various circuits of the switch. 

Have been trying to find a place to purchase this part (East Coast US) - ale no luck.

Anybody know where to go please?


Thank you,

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Nightmares with Shrouds, Mast & now a little with Transmission

Hi before you do anything get in touch with Amel. Some early 54's had some mast issues most were fixed by the factory. I'd trust Amel to come up with a solution long before make such a massive change. 
What happened to rig did the wire snap or pull out. If the rig is not tensioned it'll give you problems. Those wires need to very tight enough to ring when tapped with a wood hammer handle. 
In the meantime use your spare halyards to add tension. 
Good luck and fair seas. Please keep us informed.

Hello fellow Amel owners!


Cataya, Amel 54, 2007, N.46


Now crossing the pacific and on the first leg Chile-Easter Island the lower shrouds started giving way, no extreme weather.


Unfortunately before flying in a Rigger from Argentina the mast began morphing. Recommended to replace the mast upon arrival to Tahiti. Going at a snails pace and hoping the worst does not happen!!!


Have any other Amel owners had issues with the Shrouds and or Mast? The Rigger did mention that all the rigging was not adequate for the potential forces exerted on the mast and take the opportunity to upgrade all as the mast is replaced. 


On another note, Amel Transmission! In the past water had been filtering in, changed the seal when in Ecuador. Will not be able to do this again till Tahiti. The workaround I had done then was to take the white milky substance out of the reserve which is above the salt water inlet, and then replaced that with fresh oil...

I did this a few times and now it does not even mix with the water in the bottom of the reserve...

Does anyone have suggestions and if it might be something else?

Faial,

It sounds to me like you are new to this Amel. How long have you owned her?

I am not sure about specific answers to your situation, but will offer this as a Super Maramu owner:

Did you replace all three seals and the wear bushing? This should be done every 800 engine hours.

Are you aware that some early 54's had a recall that involved adding reinforcement to the masts. This looks like a metal splint that is attached to each side with a special adhesive. I am not sure if it included your hull number, or not. After the recall, Amel made a change which eliminated the reinforcements.

Many riggers will not understand Amel rigging. The shrouds should be very tight. Is it possible that someone has loosened them?

Hey Kent,

I may be able to get there on Sunday or Monday, and would enjoy meeting you and seeing your boat. I suspect Liz will come as well. If you could give me a heads up when you are heading toward the boat, we will see what we can work out. By the way, we were on the hook in Key West for a week on the trip up from Rio Dulce, and were sorry your yard stay has stretched to so long, as we had hoped to get get together with you there.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Nassau to Exumas

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Derrick,

I believe the channel betweek Paradise and Athol Island is the "Narrows"!!!
At first I was going to go through there, then according to reading could only go through 1 hour before high tide... and it is narrow... so discarded it to stay on the cautious side...

Will keep in mind to arrive at slack water for the current.

No worry, I have no intention to sail at night in shallow water.
I noted not to trust the GPS (or the marker position, nor the supposed depth) when I arrived in Freeport!
My fear is the uncharted coral... even the charted one as their position is probably not so accurate...
So I am considering staying 1 more month in Nassau and have someone coming with me for that trip.

Yes please let me know about the passage through the Tongue of the Ocean. I rather sail longer than taking risk.
Thanks in advance!

I took the dinghy out last Sunday and will take it again, so will check the snorkling site off Rose island!

Thanks again very much, looking forward to read about the Tongue of the Ocean route!

Alexandre,
 
I believe that you could pick any of your three choices,
being aware that the water gets shallower on the South side
of each of these channels, with a few scattered reefs/coral
heads/sand bars just after you go through each cut.  You
may also want to take a look at the channel between
Paradise Island and Athol Island to see if your charts
indicate that it is a safe depth for a SM.  If so, then it
is a straight shot of 52 (nautical?) miles to Hatchet Bay,
which is a charming very well-protected bay in the middle of
Eleuthera (again, check depth info). Your GPS will help you
find the narrow entrance, which can be almost invisible from
several miles out.
 
It you chose to go through the Current Cut, you may want
to time your arrival for slack water.  The current
through this cut is quite strong (several knots).
 
Take a look at your charts at the southern end of
Eleuthera.  If you don't stray too far offshore, as you
round the southern end of Eleuthera I seem to remember that
there is easy access to much deeper water for your trip
across to the Exumas.  Note: DO NOT try to go through any
of the channels at night or with poor visibility.  The
Bahamas has few navigation markers to guide you,
especially at night.  Do not trust your GPS alone, even in
daytime.  Always keep a sharp lookout for that
"uncharted" coral head or newly drifted
sandbar.
 
When I get home from work, I will check on the passage
from the Tongue of the Ocean to the Exumas.  I believe I
have saved someone else's track into my OpenCPN
navigation program.  I'll let you know.
 
If you have a chance before you leave Nassau, you may
want to check out the North side of Rose Island.  There is
a great snorkling reef there just a few yards off of an
extremely beautiful beach.

Re: Ceiling material sagging

Ian Park
 

Malcolm,
I relined my Santorin. Previous owner had scraped old foam off and re glued it. In aft cabin I removed the old lining and put new lining up. I did not glue it to the ceiling. I cut four thin plywood panels to fit the ceiling and glued and stapled the new foam on. Then I held the panels in place on the ceiling with self adhesive Velcro. I covered the butt joints with a 20 mm wooden batten held by brass screws. Looks good and in keeping with rest of boat. You could use the original fabric without the backing on the plywood, but make sure to remove all the old foam and glue..
Sticking large sheets above your head is tricky to say the least. The panels mean you can do the gluing on a table. If one subsequently comes apart its easy to remove the single panel again to fix it.
It's eBay enough to find a wood stain/ varnish fir the battens to match the rest of the woodwork,

Good luck

If I recall correctly, once you remove the allen head screws, there is a plate connected to the screw on the back of the cylinder , the spring should just drop out.

Remember to back the adjusting screw all the way out. There is no hydraulic fluid on this side of the cylinder.

Hello,

 

I also agree that this makes sense.  However, it is not clear to me if you ended up replacing a spring inside the hydraulic brake cylinder or between the jaws.

 

I also looked at the springs pictured thru a mirror on the photos below, but are these really the springs to which Maud makes reference? 

 

This is in response to:

Dear Eric, 

 

According to your description and our experience, we think that the spring

located inside the unit may be worn out. Could you please tell us if you

have dismantled the unit to check if this spring is in good condition or

not? 

 

Thank you in anticipation for your comments. 

 

With our best regards,

Morale: the VHF

or on the mizzen; and the AIS and WiFi antennas on the
mizzen could have either been eliminated or put on spreaders

feet lower (allowing one foot for the windex and wind

Of course
allowances must be made for wave action while going under
bridges.

taken last week on SM #350; your boat could vary.  Do not

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Rocna Anchor fit

Sure Steve, I'm going to be there late Sunday this wkend and for a few days next week working on the chain locker and figuring out why my galley fridge doesn't work. Probly down again in a wk or so.
I'd like to meet you and have a beer, wine, rum, lunch, and or dinner.  Bring Liz if she can deal with a bunch of testosterone.  I'll have my cousin Ian and a 12 y/o farm boy there who we're gonna put in the chain locker to finish the job.

Hi Kent,

Thanks for the input on the Rocna. If you don't mind, how about if I drive up to Fernandina when you are around, and I can take a look. We just finished our trip back from Guatemala a couple of days ago, and have Aloha docked in St Augustine for the next month doing some upgrades. We should be moving her to Brunswick Landing Marina around the 1st of July.

Re: Rocna Anchor fit

karkauai
 

I had a Delta 40 and dragged regularly as well.  I have not dragged once since using the Rocna 40 and have been in some 40+ kt winds.  I always dive on the anchor (there are rare occasions when it's too deep and murky for me to see), and have found a few times when even though the anchor seemed well set, it was on a ledge of grass, or a buried rock.  I know that if the wind changed I'd have come unhooked, so I pulled it up and reset it elsewhere.  Once in the harbour outside of Foxy's in Jost van Dyke, I dove on my anchor and found the tip barely hooked on a small chunk of coral attached to the marle.  On my way back to the boat I looked at several other anchors and found that not one of them was well hooked.  If a squall had come through there would have been bedlam!  I moved to the next harbor to the East and found good ground, then took a taxi to Foxy's.

Alas!, a Rocna 40 kg was try-fitted on the starboard roller (primary), in dry dock, and found to not fit. The specific reason was that the roll-bar did not allow the anchor to come sufficiently into the boat to sit.  We did not feel comfortable leaving it out hanging.

We instead installed a Delta 40 kg, which does fit, and which we have dragged with alarming regularity.  True, our anchoring skills are still in development, but we have come to not trust the Delta at all.

This is in response to:
 

Does anyone know if the Rocna 40kg anchor will fit the bow roller without modification on a 53' SM? If not...how about the 33kg size?

Alexandre,

 

I believe that you could pick any of your three choices, being aware that the water gets shallower on the South side of each of these channels, with a few scattered reefs/coral heads/sand bars just after you go through each cut.  You may also want to take a look at the channel between Paradise Island and Athol Island to see if your charts indicate that it is a safe depth for a SM.  If so, then it is a straight shot of 52 (nautical?) miles to Hatchet Bay, which is a charming very well-protected bay in the middle of Eleuthera (again, check depth info). Your GPS will help you find the narrow entrance, which can be almost invisible from several miles out.

 

It you chose to go through the Current Cut, you may want to time your arrival for slack water.  The current through this cut is quite strong (several knots).

 

Take a look at your charts at the southern end of Eleuthera.  If you don't stray too far offshore, as you round the southern end of Eleuthera I seem to remember that there is easy access to much deeper water for your trip across to the Exumas.  Note: DO NOT try to go through any of the channels at night or with poor visibility.  The Bahamas has few navigation markers to guide you, especially at night.  Do not trust your GPS alone, even in daytime.  Always keep a sharp lookout for that "uncharted" coral head or newly drifted sandbar.

 

When I get home from work, I will check on the passage from the Tongue of the Ocean to the Exumas.  I believe I have saved someone else's track into my OpenCPN navigation program.  I'll let you know.

 

If you have a chance before you leave Nassau, you may want to check out the North side of Rose Island.  There is a great snorkling reef there just a few yards off of an extremely beautiful beach.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Rocna Anchor fit

Look in photos section, search Rocna, and you will find some pics of Lady Annila with a 40kg Rocna on the bow roller.  She has the same bow roller configuration as SM 243 Kristy, and the fit is the same.  The roll bar snugs up against the two vertical bow rollers just as the throat of the shank arrives at the horizontal bow roller.
