Good morning Fernando,
I have an SM2K, so not sure if it is exactly the same as yours;
My tape measure is in inches... 1" is 2.54 CM
 
The top part (include the back end) is 32" Lenght by 37" width
The part that open is 23" lenght and 33 1/2 " width
The opening itself is: 19.5" by 32.5"
The inside is: 34.5" lenght by 37" width - 2 3/4 " deep

Does anybody send me the exact dimension of the supermaramu navigation table?

I am away from my boat and need the size of the navigation table and of the opening cover of it.

Thanks in advance

Propshaft wearing ring

Anne and John Hollamby <annejohnholl@...>
 

Hello Craig,
Many thanks for your excellent posting of 12 April 2013. I had just bought a new wearing ring from Amel which was,as you said, very expensive probably because of the courier charges. One might have thought that they would get a special deal in view of the quantity of stuff they must send out around the world. I was going to have a copy made locally but before doing so I printed your posting and took it to a Maltese dealer specialising in oil seals, bearings etc. They came up with a solution which should make it unnecessary to ever change the bronze ring ever again.
The relevant part of the brass/bronze ring is 30mms long and 45mms in diameter. They sold me a sleeve made of the sort of steel used in bearings which is very wear resistant. It is 45mms ID and 50mms OD and 35mms overall. They told me to take it to a machine shop and instruct them to thoroughly clean it and the wear ring and then to use a hydraulic press to put it in place cutting off 5mms from the projecting end.
They also sold me some oil seals which are 50mms ID so that they will fit on the sleeve and into the housing.
I would expect the sleeved wear ring to last indefinitely but I will keep the worn wear ring just in case I need to use that as a replacement after sleeving. The oil seals provided by Amel have one edge to keep the oil in whereas the ones I have bought have two edges. The details are sleeve made in Japan by Nippon Thompson.Co. Ltd.(IKO) part no LRT 455035 !pcs. and 1030627 and the oil seals are TTO F214 2 TC 50 65 8. The
O ring inside the wear ring is 2.5 mms in thickness and the ID seems to be 40 mms. The cost of the four parts was 59 euros and the address of the supplier is info at sciclunaenterprises.com. I suppose that the sleeves are also made 30 mms long but were not in stock.
A word of warning, I have a new laptop with Windows 8 and a large touch pad for swiping, I hate W8 and in addition I typed a longer version of this message the other day and as I was signing it the edge of my hand brushed across the pad and in the process swiped out the whole message which had taken me some 90 minutes to compose. I have now disabled the touch pad and can again face this laptop!!

Best wishes, Anne and John, SM2K 319, Malta

Take a look at the photos in this album: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/amelyachtowners/photos/album/364756240/pic/list?mode=tn&order=ordinal&start=1&dir=asc

You will find some information about the 2nd freezer removal...could help you.

Oh, and the term dijonctuer refers to what we Americans would call the circuit breaker. There are three circuit breakers for refrigeration on hull 387...fridge, freezer, and 2nd freezer.

Amel Euros for sale

tresliebres <eonoemedia@...>
 

Hello everyone. I have a Amel Euros 41 that I recently painted (hull and deck both), revised the engine (it will have changed the four pistons and have put new gaskets) and has been completely reupholstered. The boat also has a full electronics and a good set of sails. The idea was to start a family long crossing, but our circumstances have changed and I have to put on sale. Photos and more details to those who are interested. I forgot ... the price ... well, I think is a great price ... 34000 euros.


Atlantic Crossing East to West 2013 & 2014

Judy and Bill aboard SV BeBe <yahoogroups@...>
 

All,
Our friend, Jimmy Cornell, founder of the ARC (Atlantic Rally for
Cruisers), has scheduled two East-West Atlantic crossings for cruisers.
17 November 2013 from Arrecife, Lanzarote to Le Marin, Martinique.The
start of the November crossing will mark the 20th anniversary of
Lanzarote having been declared a UNESCO biosphere reserve in 1993. The
main objective of a biosphere reserve is to enable sustained economic
development compatible with the conservation of natural resources, as in
the case of Lanzarote. To reflect those aims, the Atlantic Odyssey will
have an important environmental dimension, participants being encouraged
to take part in specific research projects during their transatlantic
voyage. 12 January 2014 from Santa Cruz de la Palma to St George's,
Grenada.The finish of the Jan 2014 crossing in Grenada will coincide
with the spectacular celebrations marking the 40th anniversary of
Grenada's independence.
Email to info"at"atlanticodyssey.org or see www.atlanticodyssey.org
If you are thinking of an East-West Atlantic crossing in 2013/2014, I
highly recommend either of these.
Best,

Re: [Amel] Volvo TMD 22 Fuel Filter - how many Micron?

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Just to reply to my own post and those using the Volvo engine on their Super Maramu.

The original Volvo 3840335 fuel filter is a 14 micron.
I found (at O'Reilly) a WIX 33358 which is a 10 Micron
Finally I found (at West Marine) a Sierra 18-7709 which is 2 micron.

I will be using a Racor 10 Micron, followed by a 2 Micron on the Volvo engine.

Thanks again for your feedback. Sincerely, Alexandre

Subject: Re: [Amel] Volvo TMD 22 Fuel Filter - how many Micron?

Alexandre,

For what it is worth (I am not an expert):

I believe your Racor filter should be 10 micron and your engine filter should be 2 micron. I believe you will get too much vacuum when double-up and place 2 micron in both locations.

Also, think about the logic: Assuming that you source quality filters, particles larger than 2 micron are going to get stopped by the first 2 micron filter. In that case the second 2 micron filter is only increasing the vacuum pressure on the engine's fuel pump.

I am always leary of advice that goes something like this: "X is good so 2X is better." I had a knowledgeable boat engineering company ruin our watermaker by using 4 times the required amount of chemical to pickle the watermaker. When I asked him about this he said he thought if a little was good, more would be great.

I hope this helps...if not it gives you another view.

Best,

Bill

[Amel] Re: SSB/ SAT PHONE

Alan Leslie
 

Thanks very much Colin,

My ICOM 710 + AT 130 tuner + Pactor modem are now installed and all working well !!
I used the standard Amel triatic antenna, the lead comes down the mizzen mast as a 50 ohm coax cable. I used just the centre wire to connect the "Antenna" connection on the AT130 and taped up the shield on the coax.
I installed the AT130 on the wall of the hanging locker aft of the sea berth (over the battery compartment)...closest I could get to the antenna wire..and had to drill a big hole in the ceiling of that locker to pass all the cables through to the nav station.
The SSB (BLU) ground was a green/yellow cable, about 6mm2, connected to a shunt with the skeg anode ships ground cable (also green/yellow), marked "radio" behind the pullout panel at the back of the chart table.
Someone had hand written "BLU" on the SSB ground cable...merci beaucoup!!
I installed a 24/12V switchmode converter behind the chart table panel next to the connectors 24V marked BLU to feed the 12V to the ICOM.

The ICOM M710 is installed in the same place as yours,( removed the panel) with the pactor modem just sitting on top of the radio.
There's space either side of the radio to store folded charts and the Amel "bible".
AND it all works !!
In fact it works..at least sailmail does, much better than in my previous boat with an insulated backstay antenna and the tuner right underneath it.
In any event...very pleased...and thanks very much for all your help.

Cheers

compacts the messages and we could get all email and weather in less than a minute. SailDocs is inexpensive and allows a text moving forecast based on your expected coordinates. Maps from various sources. All through email which cuts your time online.
Be sure to get the Iridium, as Globalstar still has no mid ocean coverage. Various weather routers will also deliver forcasts by
