Hi Bill:

Thanks for the nice photos and information in the photo section
on servicing the rudder post packing.
Likewise, thanks for you information on the Onan starting problems.
What program are you using to compose you photos with the text

Re: [Amel] Gelcoat color? and Davit suggestions for SM2000

Paul LaFrance <pflafrance@...>

We installed Atkin & Hoyle davits that are made in Canada. They did have to reinforce the deck at the stern but not the transom. We have a 10' rib with a 9.8 2 stroke engine and it works well. As well we have solar panels that weigh 60 lbs on top of the davits. The stern does sit lower and we raised the waterline as we had planned to do this anyway.

I installed Simpson Lawrence electric lift. Always have issues, get

manual lift. I have santorin, but assume all amels have paper thin

sterns and require major beefing up of stern to minimize flexing. It

will also drop stern, but I wouldn't trade forward clear deck or a

silly roll up dinghy. Also need to move stearn light.

Sorry, Ornella, that's the SM2000 owner's manual.


Santorin #79 - Owners Manual

Lars H. Knudsen <museum@...>
 

I am the owner of Santorin #79 Salvagny and I do not have the Owners Manual
but really could use it as I am still very new to the Amel yachts.



If someone could take photos or scan the manual (preferably English
Language) I would be really, really greatful!

It could probably be placed for download in the Photo section.



Best regards

Bow Thruster O-Rings for Mango

Alan Spence
 

I am currently in the Yard in Whangarei, New Zealand and have been a
bit frustrated trying to service my bow thruster. I ordered the seals
from Amel (150 euros for 3 foam rings and two seals), but they sent me
the seals for the current design. Apparently the design has changed
over the years. My thruster has 2 approximately 60 mm O-Rings instead
of the upper seal in the current design. I have attempted to purchase
replacement o-rings, but they are a bit of a loose fit and even had
seals made that ended up being too tight. I'm wondering if anyone
else has dealt with replacing these o-rings with locally available parts?

Re: [Amel] Hurth gearbox Watercooler on SM Volvo

ianjenkins1946 <ianjudyjenkins@hotmail.com>
 

Thanks, John.


Ian, you are right, the cooler can be bypassed by putting the two hoses together. I ran mine,( not high speeds) for quite sometime before I replaced it. Volvo doen't have the part because it's a Hurth transmission part. It can also be bought in the States at Transatlantic diesel for 120.00 US. Phone !-800-9279295. Also they have any parts you need for the Volvo, talk to Sherrie. I think you have the same engine I have the Volvo TMD 22P Regards John "Moon dog" SM248

Nice suggestion, Gary.
Just as information, Olivier Beaute' has left Amel to pursue other
interests. We all wish him well.
After the Sale Service is now handled by the same capable group of people
with Christian Dufourd at the helm and with Maud as his first assistant.
They look forward to being of service.

Onan Model 7 MDKVA starting problems

svbebe <yahoogroups@...>
 

Gary,

You were recently researching Onan starter problems as I did about a
year ago. I did not find information specific to my situation, but I
solved the problem. Unfortunately, I did not share this with the Group.

I had starting problems where the there was some clicking and fuel
pumping, but no starter engage. The Genset would go no error with an
indication that there was excessive cranking when in fact there was no
cranking.

Solution:
All of the sensor wire terminals (temp, exhaust temp, fuel pressure,
water flow, etc) and the Positive & Negative starter solenoid
connections were loosened, cleaned then reattached...I assume that one
or more of the terminals needed cleaning...no more problem.

I hope this helps you and/or someone else.

Best,

Bill

PROPOSED GUIDELINES TO POSTING MESSAGES

amelliahona <no_reply@...>
 

Hello all members of the Amel Forum:

I would like to thank everyone on this forum who
has taken time to share their expertise on a host
of subjects. I have found the information most
valuable. While researching a problem with my
Onan MDKAL Genset on my Amel SM 2000 Hull
335, I was somewhat frustrated by posting
issues that weren't specific enough.

THEREFORE:

I would like to PROPOSE TO ALL MEMBERS some
guidelines that I believe will increase the
usefulness of the forum.

1. SUBJECT TITLES: Please compose a subject
title that is somewhat specific to your post and
includes some detail of what the post is about.
For example, a subject of "Help" doesn't tell you
anything and unless you are being attacked by
pirates and don't have time to be more specific,
isn't searchable. More appropriate would be,
"Onan Genset MDKAL431 Starting Problem"

2. HULL NUMBERS: Since many problems and
issues are specific to a given model and hull
number, please post your hull number and
model (e.g. Sharki, SM, etc) somewhere
in each post so we can determine applicability.

3. POSTING PICTURES: When posting pictures to
the photos section please place them in appropriately
labeled folders. Randomly posted photos clutter
the site and make searching more labor intensive.
If you have a relevent photo that will fit in an
existing folder please don't create a duplicate
folder. PLEASE label your pictures so we know
what they are.

4. BE SPECIFIC: If you are having problems with
something please list the model year, brand name,
model number etc. A furling motor for a Sharki
is no doubt different than for a SM. For a good
example of a well-composed and specific post with
a good subject header please see Ian & Judy's
entitled, " Hurth Gearbox Watercooler on SM Volvo"

Details count, we need details to be of most help.

Lastly, when replying to a long thread please
take time to delete everything the specific post
you are replying to. It doesn't do any good to
have a reply that copies 6 other replies, especially
when you are getting the posts via sailmail.

Thanks again for all the information volunteered,
please try to make it even more useful by being
detail oriented.

Kindest intentions,

Gary Silver Amel SM 2000 Hull 335

Subject: [Amel] Hurth gearbox Watercooler on SM Volvo


Hi y'all, We have the 78hp Volvo on Pen Azen , SM 302. On the starboard side of the Hurth gearbox is a small 7cm x 8cm x 5cm box attached to the gearbox by 4 bolts. It has an inlet pipe to take the hose from the seacock and an outlet pipe taking a hose to the engine seawater pump.The hose on the inlet pipe seemed to be leaking, a few drips, with some whitish gunge around the jubilees clips. I assumed the gunge was salt but it was corroded pipe ( looks like some sort of aluminium alloy). The pipe was so corroded that the hose can only be attached with one jubilee clip. Needless to say, Antigua has no such part. La Rochelle quoted me 360 Euros plus VAT but I have got the part from an inland waterways marina in England for £61 ( about $100 or about 60 Euros).
Both hoses come off easily so in future I will slip them each season to see how the pipes are doing.
Volvo UK could not help me. Their handbooks show no watercooler on the TMD22 but the supplier who came to my rescue told me that the coolers are used on inland waterway tug engines, always running hard, and he reckoned that I could probably just bypass the watercooler if I had to.
Happy sailing, Ian and Judy, Pen Azen, SM 302, Antigua

The owner's manual says in hot weather the grease under the foil can liquify and leak down the forestay and onto the deck. It says "Don't worry about the furler, it's sealed"...yeah, right.

There has been an oil leak in the genoa furling gear in the bottom
furler but I cannot get the bottom plate off. Any ideas?

Dear Dave, i'm the owner of a Sharki, and I had the same problem,and I
think that it can occur also on a Maramu.
Some water leaks came in through the plastic grills on the port side at
the interior and the exterior of the cockpit; mine are for the air of
heating, and a little part was broken.Temporarily (and I suspect is
forever) I closed it with grey tape.

Hi Kent,
I was stuck unexpectedly with no crew in Charleston while sailing from Norfolk to Ft Lauderdale in January 2003 and I contacted Joel Potter and Ray Eaton the Amel sales and support representatives in the USA, both based in Ft Lauderdale who very kindly arranged an excellent crew/skipper at very short notice ( one day) who had loads of Amel knowledge and experience (Not a bad cook as well) and was an enjoyable companion on the voyage and shared the watches with me. He lives in Florida but I'm afraid I recently lost my PC with all the email history on it so can't even give you a name or contact number. I'm sure Joel or Ray can put you in touch.
Good luck

Re: [Amel] Maramu question

Eric Lindholm <etlindholm@...>
 

Dave it might be coming in from your windows. The wood trim around the windows on the inside is screwed in from the outside under/ and covered by the windows.These screws could leak. There is one screw that is not under the windows just aft of them. It may not be visible if the prior owner painted the cabin and painted over it. The water could leak down behind the wooden window frames and vinyl to the cabinets. The handrail above the bed is also screwed in from the outside. Other than that you have the hull to deck joint under the rub rail. Good luck Eric Maramu 105

I would check a couple of things: check that your cleats are secure and
not leaking (you can access the screws and bolts from the inside) and
also check the aft locker for fisures in the fiberglass that maybe
leaking into your aft cabin storage spaces (this is a very wet locker).
The stanchions seem to be attached to more a solid fiberglass
structure.If you have any HF SSB antenna cables going through the deck,
you might want to check that as well.I would also inspect the
plexiglass on the sides for leaks.
