Spare Parts, etc.

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

Spare Parts: I have been thinking about this subject for some time.

I know of several Super Maramus that were sold with thousands of dollars worth of spare parts. We all know that the spare parts aboard those boats were simply a bonus to the new owner and never added a single dollar to the sales price. I know that we have about $7,000 in spare parts.

Wouldn't it be great if those owners could have sold their spares at a discount to some of us? It would be a win-win.

That said, I am not sure how to go about doing this, other than to encourage a seller to post a list of spares here before listing his boat for sale.

We are not thinking about selling BeBe!

Any ideas or comments?

Bill,

I also keep my life raft in the port cockpit locker. I had 2 aluminum tanks
fitted into the "life raft locker with hose barbs connected to each tank to
pump them out. They hold a total of about 260 liters of diesel. Works great
and no problem transferring fuel in rough seas, I use a whale guppy transfer
pump.

Stefano,

We are circumnavigating aboard BeBe, SM387. We moved the life raft to the
cockpit lazzerette, and have used the port deck locker to stow 10 jerry-cans
of diesel with each one holding 18.9 liters. This gives us an extra 189
liters of diesel. We have never needed this extra diesel, but it makes us
feel good to have 789 liters of diesel rather than just 600. Our longest
non-stop passage was 3,000 miles. We used 234 liters on that passage,
however on one 1,600 mile passage we used 400 liters.

Hopes this helps you decide where to place the life raft.

Best,

Bill

this is the position of my liferaft (neglect my wife's "basilico"), much better.
In the port locker I put a couple of spare sails

Sorry I understand that no photo attachment is possible. My liferaft is behind mizzen mast, I put 4 wooden blocks glued with 3M 5300 marine adhesive, 25mm marine plywood, and 4 supports bolted on them (the ones used for the fuel tank in the dinghy), and the liferaft belted on them. After I covered it, only for aesthetics, with a red hood.

Re: [Amel] Life raft

When on overnite passages, I take it out of the port locker and lash it to the aft cabintop with easy-to-untie knots and a dedicated sharp knife if needed. Ditch bag with EPIRB, fishing gear, and hand operated desalinator are in the port cockpit locker. Satphone and handheld VHF and GPS are on the shelf to starboard of the companionway.
I'm going to have to purchase a new liferaft when I go out again as this one is 15 yrs old and they won't service it any more. I'll deploy the old one to see just how difficult it is to do and how hard it is to get aboard once in the water.
I'll let you all know what happens.

Hey, Amel Club,
I sail 1989 Maramu 258, s/v Have Fun! which has only one genoa pole. I would like to find second pole (both parts). Does anyone not use their poles or know of a salvage Amel that might have one? I am located near Annapolis, Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay.

Re: Amel history lesson

Michael,

One thing that surprised me is that the twin pole setup with the jockey struts was added later as there is no evidence of it being on the boat. There has been discussion of bow lockers in previous threads. Keeping them watertight isn't possible but putting things down to keep thing elevated a bit helps. I open mine frequently and leave them open to air out.

Thanks a lot for the brochure. It showed me how some things are supposed to be done on my Maramu. I always suspected the bow lockers would be great sail storages, but I found them to be too wet to put anything else but anchor equipment, ropes and fenders there, though my seals seem to be ok.
The previous owner had stored a gennaker there but it was in not so good condition when I found it due to moisture.

Re: [Amel] Marina in maiami

Hi Alessandro,
I would go from Puerto Rico North of the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Cuba (the Old Bahamas Channel between the Bahamas Bank and Cuba).ツ Stop by the Turks and Caicos north of Haiti.ツ When you get to Cay Sal Bank you can go southツthru the Nicholas Channel to Key West (a "must" while you are in the area) or north thru the Santaren Channel directly to Miami.ツ The Old Bahamas Channel is flanked on the South by Cuba, and on the North by the Bahamas Bank.ツ You will need to make sure you know where you are as the Bank shallows rapidly.ツ The Gulf Stream at the tip of Florida can carry 3+ kts, so make sure you point considerably south of where you want to go.

The hurricane season starts June 1st and lasts through the end of October (some say until Nov. 15).

Someone else will have to give you suggestions regarding marinas in Miami.

Best of luck to you and the family.

I had a pleasant surprise recently when I ran across an old Maramu brochure in German. Our Maramu, hull #29, is featured in the brochure. This was Henri's personal boat for 6 years and was named Maramu 3. In the picture on page 7, we see the name on the stern.

Several years ago, someone in La Rochelle told me the boat originally came with a hank on genoa. I thought perhaps he was mistaken, but the brochure clearly shows the boat without a furler. When the second owner purchased the boat in 1985, the yard fitted an electric Nirvana furler, which is still on the boat.

If you wish to see the brochure, a copy is on my website - http://islandplanetsails.com/amel/brochure.pdf

In the event someone has a copy of this brochure, I would love to acquire one.
