Subject: [Amel] storm sail for Super Maramu





Hello all,

Last year I purchased a storm sail that mounts on its own removable inner
forestay. The sail was made by Sails Gateff, a firm that has been acquired
by Doyle. The new sail works very nicely and makes my FTN storm sail
redundant.
I would be happy to sell my never used 150 Square foot FTN storm sail for
the best offer I receive. The sail is stored in Newport, RI.

Re: engine info

seagasm <seagasm@...>
 

Pat, the engine is built by Perkins! I have the same engine and I found a decal on the engine block that said so. I also found a Perkins parts manual on the boat when I purchased her. When I spoke to the Volvo dealer at Rivergate in Brisbane, they suggested I Google the serial number for the parts manual, it is available I understand although I have not done so as yet since the old girl is still running fine, with the exception of a small oil leak I don't seem to be able to get to beneath the engine somewhere. I hope this helps you.

Subject: [Amel] Lost Autoprop

Hello all,

We are currently cruising in Sausalito California. While docking this
weekend I lost power due to our Autoprop loosening itself and spinning off
the shaft. We were able make a nice landing without causing any damage,
however we're now stranded at the dock without power. We're hiring a diver
to attempt a recovery of the prop tomorrow, but it may be lost for good.

Our last haulout was in March of this year and the prop was removed and
serviced. Since then we've sailed through the Pacific NW, Canada, and down
to California. Has anyone else lost their prop, and if so any ideas on the
root cause?

We're unable to put on our spare fixed propeller because we don't have a
propeller shaft key (it went down with the Autoprop)

Does anyone know of a US source for an Amel SM2000 propeller key or the
dimensions that I could take to a machine shop? Also does anyone know of a
US source and shaft dimensions so that I can order a new Autoprop if I need
to?

Thank you,

Hey Kent,
Having done both routes a couple of times, my take is neither is "bad" - both are super! Offshore is a great sail - no need to go quite all the way to Bermuda, altho that's a fun break in the passage. At the same time, it's really fun to poke around the Bahamas, Turks & Caicos, etc. This is precisely why they make chocolate AND vanilla - you takes yer pick! The latter, of course, will see much more upwind time, which may be of concern for your calendar.

For weather, keep working on the SSB, although on my first offshore trip we just had a VHF and got good input from passing freighters, plus reading the clouds and barometer. You could also take a "short wave" radio and listen in to "Southbound II" each evening and/or download weatherfaxs to your computer with a cheapie modem. Then, again, you should be able to download all the weather you want at will with your satelite phone and skip the other complexites.

You might also want to check similar opinions on the SSCA DB - lots of archived opinions there. It's at http://ssca.org/phpBB3/

Heading South for the Winter

karkauai
 

Hi, all,
I'm making plans for the trip South from the Chesapeake to the Caribbean and thought I'd ask for some advice. I've done a few 3-5 day offshore trips across the Gulf and up the coast, but haven't tackled the trip South yet. From what I've read a lot of people sail out to Bermuda, then South to avoid the upwind beat from the Bahamas down the chain, but I still don't have my SSB working (or have a good way to get weather that far offshore) I'm working on that, but haven't had much luck yet. I have a week in Oct that I could take her down to Savannah, then a month from mid Nov to mid Dec. I've ordered the book "A Gentleman's Guide to Passages South", but wanted some advice from folks who've been there and done that. Just how "bad" are the two approaches to getting to the BVI from the E Coast?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Re: Amel Insurance

Hi, everyone,
I was looking thru the posts for advice on getting from the Chesapeake to the Caribbean this winter and ran across this post on insurance. I have mine through Keenan Marine (Ardsley, NY) with Mariners General Insurance Group in Newport Beach, CA. It covers the US coast from Brownsville, TX to Eastport, ME and the Bahamas and Turks/Caicos and CAribbean EXcluding Cuba, Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Columbia. She has to be N of St Mary's, GA or S of Granada between June 1 and Nov. 15 for the Hurricane season. Yearly premium: $3767 US. This is despite me being a first time boat owner (other than ski/fishing lake boats).

My contact at Keenan is Stephan Rathsack <stephan@keenanmarine.com>

So far am very happy, but haven't had a claim...knock on wood.

In oct. 2005, I purchased the rubber seal from Amel in Hyère, France.

It was refered to as: Joint adhésif Hutchison MF10 ( Hutchison Adhesive Seal...);
the price was 34,40 € tax included for 10 meters, that is about 1 € per foot.

For anyone looking to replace the neoprene D rubber on the sail lockers, I located a good source. Clean Seal Inc. P.O. Box 2919 20900 West Ireland Road, South Bend, In 46680 phone 800 366 3682. The sample they supplied me with was .656 thick, or 5/8 inch, and 1 inch wide. It is black neoprene, hollow, but thick on the sides. Looks and works good. They sell it in 100 foot spools, but quoted me only 79 cents a foot plain, or $1.13 per foot peel and stick. They sell direct as well. Eric maramu 105

BM2 <bluemarinemartin@...>
 

Bonjour,

Sorry to have disturbed you.

For several years I have been using "Dream mail", a funny Chinese one, to send and receive messages. This software, working exactly like outlook express, is supported by an USB key which I can plug in any computer connected to internet, including mine, via WIFI, when I am in a Marina.

I have been in Hurgada Marina (Egypt) for several weeks now and it always worked perfectly, including presently, except for the forum during the last weeks, .

I just found that, only for this sender, it switches automatically to HTML instead of text ; and it shows "page not available without connection".

Fortunately, I now found out that, switching to "text", I can read the messages; but, if I close and reopen, it goes back to HTML.

Problem solved as to me!!!!

I am not familiar with what "fully featured" format is. Could it be the reason????? I will tell you if your change back has any effect.

Muchas gracias para la vostra ayuda.

Best Regards.

I have not experienced what you mention.

I have changed your configuration to receive in traditional format instead of the new 'fully featured' format.

If you do not have the issue with the traditional format, then there is some mismatch between you email application configuration and the 'fully feature' format.

Myra,

Get the drogue from Ian. I have been in 2 hurricanes with it on 2 different
boats. This time 3 boats went down, I death, Richard Branson's 99 footer was
severely damaged and one Coast guard rescue swimmer was injured we broke a
bungee cord on a weather cloth-that was it for us.



There is nothing like it. The coast Guard reported seas exceeding 50feet ,
we saw winds gusting to about 100 knots.

Pen Azen. We met Ian and Judy when they were in Cork on their way home. We
are meeting them next month in England as Ian has kindly offered to give my
husband and I some tips on Super Maramu maintenance.

I had intended getting a para anchor until Ian offered his drogue for sale,
