It is significantly more expensive to replace the standing rigging with
metric wire and fittings if you are in the US. I understand it's not the
case if you are in Europe or elsewhere. If you switch to US standard sizes,
there will be some issues with fittings that are attached to the boat. I
opted to use metric sized cables in spite of the added cost because I
thought it might detract from resale value if I switched to US sizes. I had
a little pitting and rust at the entry points of the cables into the swages,
and cut two of the swages lengthwise to look at the cables within...there
was significant deterioration of the cables and I was glad I'd decided to
change the rigging even though I was told I could probably get another year
or two out of the originals.

Good luck.

[Amel] Re: Outhaul

karkauai
 

Here I am again talking about the outhaul and jib car lines. I got the Endura braid 7/16" and installed it on all of the above. Noticed a little slipping the first time out in 20kts on the beam and retightened so they're very taut. Still slipped a lot in 30kts, so much so that the sails were essentially useless. The lines still feel very taut. I'm going to try the contact adhesive, but won't get much chance to try them out until I'm ready to go South for the winter. If I had to I could cleat the outhaul off at the end of the boom, but that'd be a real hassle at sea in a blow. The line is certainly not as rough as the original lines, but is rougher than most other lines.

I can order the line Amel uses if necessary, and probably will rather than take a chance of going to sea with unusable equipment. Any other suggestions? Time is getting short if I'm going to have Amel ship it.
Thanks,
Kent

Hi we are the owners of SM 209. We've owned it took very good care of her up date the Eletronics and much more. She is now for sale take a look at her at the roguewaveyachtesales web site. Or on the yacht world site. She also has new sails, Gen set and a full tank of fuel. You reach me at rpiller at Earthlink dot net.

Jim,

The Amel Owners Group Moderator asked me to again try to post my original reply
to your Topic...the following is the message that I had to send to you privately
because of some issues with the Amel Owners Group. I apologize for the duplicity
of these postings, but it is of no fault of mine.......

Your best bet is to contact Joel Potter, Amel's rep for the Americas..

1. He sold all of the Amels in the Americas at least the first time when they
were new as he is the sole rep for the Americas.

2. He will not sell a used Amel that has been abused. I personally know of a
boat that he refused to sell.

3. He knows of Amels that are not yet "officially" listed for sale because many
of us who may be considering a future sale of our boat trust Joel to have a
"what if" conversation with him. You should trust him for your search.

Judy and I have sailed BeBe, #387, from the Caribbean across the Pacific to many
destinations including your home and from there through Indonesia to northern
Malaysia, where we are now. If we can be any help to you, we would be pleased to
assist. We will be sailing BeBe from Phuket to India, to the Red Sea, and into
the Med leaving sometime in Dec/Jan...keep us posted of your progress.

SM 243 was comissioned in 1999, built 98/99.  She was sailed for a couple years in the Med, then across the Atlantic and in the Caribbean/S. and C. America for 3-4 years.  Since then she's been on Lake Texoma between Texas and Oklahoma until I rescued her almost 3 years ago now.

Tips needed for Works needed

belitbh <belitbh@...>
 

Hi, we are wintering our boat these days and need some good tips in order to get the most put of it, any relevant info will be highly appriciated -
1. Engine - is it worthwise to temper with anything as long as there is no evidence for problems? (except of normal maintenance of filters and oil) bear in mind - 3,000hrs engine, looks ok, good performance, no leakages etc...
2. It seems that our hatches are bit 'tired' and the rear cabin hatch is complaining by leaking... - any recommendation for new hatches, stadard ones which can fit well? are the Santorin hatches matching standard sizes of the various manufacturers?
3. in our last sailing, the connection between the bilge pump to its electric motor has disconnected (it looks like battery terminal connection), we have observed that the 'shaft' coming out of the motor is too short what makes the 'battery terminal band' holding not ideal - is it by original design or maybe the motor is not properly positioned? in this regard, we want to put a back up pump - any tips on which will be the best and how to connect one (outlet, position etc...)?
4. any seals 'must' replace (propeller, sail drive, engine...)?
5. Furling systems – any special treatment required there?- not the electric motors, but the furlers. (again no problem at all and I am reluctant to let anyone tempering with it unless necessary).

thanks you all so much

Hi Bob and Suzy



You have been a great help. I will now be going to Gran Canaria to start the

redistribute the weight a little more cleverly but it is good to know that
someone else has had the same experience.



Happy voyaging

Hi Ivan,
This posting assumes that the list to port is static (at rest) as well as
moving. I own a 93 Santorin and my experience is that there can be a
tendency to list to port but that it can be overcome. I believe that the
reasons that it can list to port are the following--heavy house batteries,
oven/stove, pantry, Espar?,both heads, refrigerator+contents are all on the
port side. Also, if you have a heavy life raft and filled jerry cans in the
port life raft locker, that can add significant weight on that side. In
addition, if you use large amounts of diesel in your tank, you lose weight
(up to 800 lbs) on the starboard side. The rear lazarette is not a great
place to try to trim the list of the boat because it significantly tapers
inboard, providing less leverage on the roll axis--in any case the bow and
stern are not a great place to have any heavy items because they increase
forces on the pitch access. I solved my boat's issue--COMPLETELY-- by
putting heavy engine spares etc. in the storage below the starboard pilot
berth --this is the widest part of the boat. I also keep heavy tools below
my nav station area. In addition, heavier food items, etc IF you have them
in the lockers below the salon windows can be shifted to the starboard size.
Finally, heavy canned goods and beer, etc. could be stored in the bottom
shelf of the passageway. Again, I have not had to resort to that, but I do
not have full jerry cans in the life raft compartment. I just spent several
weeks anchored with friends who have finished their circumnavigation in a
(Garcia) sail boat with a Hydrovane which was very significantly offset and
it worked without a hitch....used it virtually all the time and could not
stop raving about it.

Hope this helps.

Maramu rigging

bsarff <bsarff@...>
 

I've been told that i should replace the original rigging before going off shore. There is some pitting on the wires but no visible cracks on the swage fittings.

My question is does it matter if I replace with metric sizes versus US standard size? The US standard size is less expensive. I don't see a big difference as long as I closly match the original size.

Thanks for anything you can share.

Stefan,

My Amel Maramu 48 is being listed with Jordan Yacht and Ship Co. See
jordanyachts.com.  It is located in Ft Lauderdale FL. 


This yacht has been sailed around the planet twice and I sailed the Great
Barrier Reef from Carins to Darwin having a wonderful experience all the way. 
It has many upgrades for ease of sailing , living aboard at sea and safe
navigation as you can see from the listing.  Lately, I purchased a complete
engine overhaul kit in that the parts are becoming difficult to find.


It is only 1200+/- miles from Ft Lauderdale to the Panama Canal and the Canal
processing number is on board making for an easy registration. 

See many videos on youtube, key in AMEL MARAMU KETCH.
