We didn't go the marine use route. We purchased low pile berber from a carpet mart near us. Took it home and laid out the old carpet as a pattern and cut each piece. We then took all the pieces back to the carpet mart and they stitched binding onto all pieces. Looks great and only cost about $110.00.

Hi Gary. I got the Honey Beige Berber made by Shaw. It has a wavy-looking rubbery-feeling backing and is made for marine use. I had them put velcro where there was velcro on the old ones, but I'm not sure that's really necessary. Shaw makes several different colors in that berber. There is another honey beige that is a cut pile carpet which is made by someone else and is not made for marine use. That one isn't backed.

Hi Kent:

I googled the "honey beige marine carpet" and found several vendors. Was yours rubber backed like the original or did you have to use double sided tape to keep it from slipping etc.

Filter Eau Mer Puisard Sensor (Sea Chest Filter Obstruction Sensor)

amelliahona <no_reply@...>
 

Hi All:

On my last trip I noticed that the sea chest obstruction alarm didn't sound when I filled the toilet with sea water with the sea cock closed ( my normal test of this sensor ). Testing the sensor showed it was corroded and inoperative. I am currently in correspondence with Maud at Amel about obtaining a replacement. Does anyone have specifications for this sensor? It looks like a 1/8th inch pipe thread and is a vacuum pressure transducer, most of which are adjustable, but I don't know what degree of vacuum to look for. Any thoughts?

All the best,

Gary Silver

Dynaplate To SSB Tuner Connection

amelliahona <no_reply@...>
 

Dear all:

My boat has the Amel installed SSB system. There is a 4 inch wide copper strap laminated into the hull in the aft lazarette that runs to two Dynaplates on the rudder skeg. The copper strap provides the ground at the AT-130 antenna tuner. Does anybody know how the Amel SM installed SSB copper grounding strap from the SSB antenna tuner is connected to the two Dynaplates on the rudder skeg? Is there potential for corrosion at that junction that might account for increasingly poor performance of the SSB? Has anyone replaced their Dynaplates or had the opportunity to inspect this interface?

Just curious.

Hi, Veit.
The per square foot cost of the Honey Beige berber carpet by Shaw is between $8.50 and $9.50 on all the sites I looked at. Can't remember now which one I used. The cost of the carpet itself is negligible compared to the cutting and edging (I did not use Sunbrella edging since this carpet is inside the boat.) labor costs. The company who made mine is a local carpet business in Hickory, NC who doesn't do "marine" work, but does do custom rugs.

I took the old carpet in to use as patterns. Google "honey beige marine carpet" and you will find the one I chose. There are several other Berbers and a few solids similar to the original Amel carpeting, all made by Shaw. These are made as "snap in" carpet, as opposed to marine carpet made for gluing down to the decking.

I found a print of Kristy's awning and took a pic of it to post in the photo album KRISTY SM243. That's why the quality is poor. In this photo the side panel of the center section is rolled up on the port side and is down on the forward and aft sections.
Sorry, that's the best I can do for now.

In the cockpit there is plenty of room to stand as the dodger canvas is stowed.

Even if I'm only going to be somewhere a short time I often put up the awning over the cockpit (from main to mizzen...that alone makes a big difference.

Hi don't know your location in the Caibb. There is a very good canvas shop in Old English Harbor that does very good work. You may find one in Trinidad. As others have written find a craftsman that has done them before. You've got 3 or 4 halyards to use to support it. Best is to stay above the boom so you can walk below the cover.

We have a Sunbrella cover, 2-piece, that goes from main mast to back-stays and includes a water collector that goes thru a filter and into the water tank. We can collect several hundred liters per hr in a typical tropcial downpour. I think the size of the cover and the normal stretch of the material make it impossible to get a good fit without some tweaking by the craftsman. For even small pieces of Bimini, direct measurement has been necessary. Use the pictures to decide what you want, but then have it made by a craftsman, on site.

We are wanting to fabricate a full awning for our Super Maramu, and happen at present to be in a western Caribbean backwater without a local canvas shop. Does anyone out there have plans/specifications/blueprints for an awning for an SM, and perhaps also know of a good canvas maker who can possibly ship to us? Thank you.

Hello Maria,

We can share some of iur experiences. We stayed in Didim, Leros and Aghios Nikolos. All of them are fine marinas. Crete has the best climate for the winter and is a lovely island. The marina is close to the attractive town and is not expensive. Maintenance facilities are not that good. Didim is a new and very good marina and has execellent maintenance facilities. For the village you have to take the mini bus. Atmosphere is okay, but not cosy. In summer expensive, but the offer winter packages. Turkey is also very beautiful so you have acccess to many interseting places. Leros is also a good marina. You can walk to the village which is interesting, but doesn't offer much after you have seen it once or twice. And it is an island which is also beautiful but small and with limited connection facilities.
On the Turkish coast there are plenty of wintering facilities. You could also consider Kusadasi, Marmaris, Göcek and others. Many of them have wintering contracts.

Hope this is helpful,

Hello,

We are thinking to pass this winter in the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea.
The stw group has a label for Leros in Greece and Didim in Turquie.

Does someone knows those marinas or another one ?
An advice for a good marina where we can spend this winter: save and with good services would be very much appreciated.

Best regards,

Maria
