Re: [Amel] MAin outhaul line

yahoogroups@...
 

Alan,


I remember how to use the outhaul to tightly stretch the new line when installing.


Move the outhaul block to about 1 meter from the mast-end of the boom.


Tie a piece of 6mm line to the shackle on the outhaul and to the mast. You do not need to tighten the line at this point, but it should have just a little slack.


Tie and whip the new outhaul line to the aft end of the shackle on the outhaul car...do not tie and whip the forward side yet. 


Run the outhaul line from the outhaul car through the starboard side of the aft outhaul line block at the aft end of the boom. Then run the line through the two line guides on the port side of the boom then around the powered outhaul block. 


Pull the bitter end of the outhaul line while someone activates the outhaul to "OUT." Try small bursts to the outhaul switch until you believe the outhaul line is tight enough. 


The small piece of 6mm line will get very tight and the outhaul line will stretch. 


Have your helper hold the new outhaul line securely in the powered outhaul block while you tie and whip a knot in the end about 15mm from the shackle on the outhaul block. 


Use 4mm line from the knot to the shackle.


Hope this helps.

Hi Alan
Good to hear you are getting good time out sailing that beautiful boat of yours.
Our outhaul line on the main boom snapped under pressure (it was actually pretty warn before this and had been on my "to do list" to replace anyway) and we replaced it with the same Spectra. After using for a brief period this new line stretched out causing the line to slip and not furl correctly. We then shortened it further and have had no further problems after that initial stretching of the new Spectra.

We've had some issues with the outhaul line on the main boom...it stretches and sometimes gets jammed in the boom motor pulley and it won't wind out or in.

I've shortened it, re tied it..but it still happens.

I'm thinking of changing the line to low stretch Spectra to try to solve this issue.

anyone else have this experience ?  solutions ??

Hi,
On our Santorin we found spectra had 10 per cent stretch and was too slippy.  We replaced it with one of our older spare ropes. No worries now!

Yes, I have, and used the wrong kind of line before switching to low-stretch line.

Also, it needs to be very tight...even the low stretch will stretch, so take this into consideration when rigging. I forgot exactly how I did it, but I used the outhaul motor to tighten the line while installing it. When you are installing, either use the outhaul to tighten or rig some blocks/line and use one of the mast winches to tighten.

Hope this helps,

Re: Watertight, my foot!

Sorry for the late reply Kent / Bill...we've been at sea for the last week...great trip by the way...Noumea to Opua.

 

YES that's exactly what happens.....going to windward in heavy seas on st'bd tack is when we see it, so it must be coming from the chain locker....that's why I'm going to put an extra valve in the drain from the fwd head...ie the head will be isolated but the chain locker can still drain into the sump.

 

thanks for your input

Wow, Alan, I have never, ever, experienced that. Possibly I do not understand your use of the word "waste" from the "forward head drain." I understand that to mean GRAY water from the shower and sink. That water should have already passed through a hose that runs slightly downhill from the forward head drain to the sump. I cannot imagine how this is happening to you, unless that drain hose has been moved from its original position, or your bow is down about 25-30cm. Is the drain hose in the bottom of each saloon locker? 

You might try pouring 1-2 liter of colored water into the shower drain and have someone watch at the sump to see if it drains and it is colored. Possibly there is an obstruction in the hose.

Please explain further...I am always a little slow on understanding something new.

Seems to me that it could be the drain in the forward head....When one is on starboard tack, the waste from the fwd head drain can flood the fwd head .. I have a wooden plug to plug the fwd head drain so it doesn't flood the head...BUT, it's a bitch to get out.

I'm going to (next trip) change the plumbing a bit and add a valve under the floor out side the fwd head so I can shut the fwd head drain off, but re-plumb the anchor locker drain T after the valve so its still clear.

Has anyone else had to test how watertight their front cabin was as water came in at first unnoticed via the bow thruster?
Apparently the water entered continued it's way into the saloon (we were heeling to po rt, on starboard tack) via the housings for the seawater pipes for toilet, chain washer and clim. Flooding our under the floorboards storage.
Are we missing something there or watertight compartment means something else in French?

Jim/Linda, we met briefly in Chula Vista two years ago days before your departure. We were looking at at another Amel in the slip beside you.

We ended up becoming the guardians of your sister ship which used to be called Jonathan. Both ships have cruised together with previous owners Claus and Barbera and Peter and Sheri.
