Danny,

I filter all dock water through a carbon filters before taking water on
board, then I back flush every 2 weeks.

This has worked well for the last 7 years with the same membranes.

Hi Eric, I find the desalator a frought business, probably more to do with
me than the unit. When on board full time in clean water, use it every day,
simple. However, up a dirty river, or in a dirty harbour for a few days or
over a week or two, what to do? Or leaving the boat for a trip inland for
say a week, maybe more? Then at home with her on the mooring for months? You
say you never pickle any more, I don't either but not sure if it is the
right thing as I don't have a cohesive alternate plan. What do you do? Then
the fear of back flushing with a trace of chlorine in the water. Really will
appreciate your reply.

Certainly your problem isn't the seals,
One reasons can be a bad sealing of the C drive,
If the boat is on the hard, It is easy to check _if the under water
gearbox is waterproof_ : leakage oil is bright in the fist hour after
putting the boat out of the sea.

Hi first the seals need or are suggested to be changed every 24 months.

Is there ware on the bushing when removed. Are the seals damaged in any way. Is the o-ring damaged. When you inspect these elements use magnifying glass so you can see the smallest problem.

Wash out the "c" with acitone and let it drain.

Now when you are in stalling the new bushing do you have the shaft free of any burrs or nics. Do you have the o-ring in the bore of the bushing.

Given no shore/on the hard leak you may want to pressurize the unit with no more then 5 psi and see what leaks. Don't go to line pressure.

Also check the seal on the drain nut.

When refilling use 40 wt motor oil not a multi grade.

Good luck lets use know your results.

Bill,



Thanks so much for the information we have printed it up and George will
begin the install tomorrow. We paid a total of $402 for both membranes
(including shipping to Puerto Rico) the cost for two membranes was $375 or
$187.50 each. we ordered via Amazon and the vendor is Water Anywhere. We
have never pickled and probably won't we get underway fairly often year
round and usually run the watermaker every time we are underway. Thanks

Back washing with fresh water is the only answer as far as I am concerned. To ensure there is no chlorine, we use two charcoal filters in series when adding water to the water tank. I bought a swimming pool water tester to test for traces of chlorine before the water enters the tank.

Hello sailors, The cap ends on our mizzen traveller broke, both at once, and we lost the ballbearings over the side.Lewmar no longer make this traveller or this track. However, they still have a supply of the end caps. The end cap kit is no. 29171048 and in the UK they sell for £8.75 each.The ball bearings are Torlon and a bag of 100 is part no. 29171021, at £24.98 a bag Replacing the traveller with its new ballbearings and caps will be interesting as I am not sure that there is sufficient space at the end of the track to but up a loader ( a small piece of track on which you have preloaded the traveller with its new ballbearings and caps. May just have to feed ball by ball. Fair winds,Ian and Judy, Pen Azen, SM 302, San Vito Lo Capo, Sicily ( Harbour master, Senor Corleone....)

Re: [Amel] Amel rudder

amelforme
 

It is entirely normal for the volume of seawater you noticed to come out of
your rudder. For several very good reasons, Amel designed it this way. Be
sure the drain (and fill!) hole is fully open with no fouling. You should
have a special 'tool' to check/clear this when diving on the boat while it
is afloat. I call mine a worn out Phillips head screwdriver.

If the hole closes, big trouble with the stainless steel structure inside
the rudder will ensue.

Alex we ordered ours from Amel. When you do be sure to get the
fasteners too. Best is to have the boat on the hard in summer so
it os easier to work with.
