Hallo, we have an AMEL SUPER MARAMU 2000, year 2000,
our refrigerator makes problems.
The compressor has enough gas amd the motor is running, but all is not cooling. Once we were at sea the frige was cooling for a wile.

We are in Phuket,Thailand. The company will sell us a new self made product for lot of money ( 27000THB ), but we don't like this.

Is there anyone who can help us?

Thanks for all in advance.
Nice greetings Klaus

forget about the small piece of carpet mounted vertically under the bottom
step (really challenging to remove) and also the piece that's along the hull
behind the pull out bunk in the saloon. They are both easy to miss.

Happy New year everyone, We are replacing the carpets on Pen Azen, our
SM no.302. Pen Azen is in Spain and we are in London. We made very accurate
templates of the existing carpets to bring home with us but a member of our
crew ( whom I daren't name for fear of having to cook my own supper) forgot
to mark one of them adequately. The piece concerned is the square piece
outside the forward head. It is square except for one corner which has a
short, oblong, piece cut out of it.We (she) forgot to mark where the cut out
lies. I think the missing piece is the shape that fits around the foot of
the mast support, but cannot be sure. Is there anyone on board an SM at the
moment who could have a look for me? I need to know two things1. Is the
missing piece on the port, aft side of the carpet?2. How does the missing
piece align itself? Is the longer side of the oblong fore and aft ( which I
suspect) or is it port to starboard?
Thanks in advance, Ian and Judy, Pen Azen, SM 302

If you can borrow the special tool you could get one made easily for a fraction of the cost. I cut the top half of the wooden block off and and reshaped the top of the bottom half to more or less resemble the piece I was throwing away thus made it much easier to get at the allen screws.
I heated and bent the end of a cheap small screwdriver to an angle of about 45 degrees and thus had a perfect tooll for pulling out old oil seals.

Happy New Year, John SM 319 Bali Hai.

Hello to all you Amel owners,
I'm a new member of the family, owner of SM#69 "Yin Yang" which I bought in April 2010. The boat was in pretty bad condition and I renovated it during the sumer. Of course the bow thruster had problems too. In my experience the leak is not caused by the neoprene foam sealing but by the spiseal around the shaft. With a special tool available from Amel (300.00 in Europe) you can remove the whole unite even with your boat in the wather. After this you can check the spiseal, the bearing of the seal, the neoprene foam seals,the prop and gear drive next to the prop, and of course change the oil. The most difficult part for me was to disconnect the shaft from the electric engine (brutal force helped)...
I don't recommend to disconnect the unit from the pin while you pour into waves as this will put a lot of stress to the whole bow thruster. The whole operation took me about 5 hours but with some experience you can do it in 1 hour.....
All the best to all of you,

Ric,

Have you put the "pin" in the top of the motor shaft? This compresses the seal and makes it more watertight.

There is an Amel operation in Guadaloupe - I believe. However, when I hauled out in Oz, I made my own seals out of upholstery foam cut to size. The important thing is to make it "closed-cell" foam.

Is what you call the "transfer case" on the keel, or in the engine room??

When you re-connect the shaft to the motor be sure to clean all rust off the shaft and the outer tube and put plenty of grease on them before you slide them into the motor. The next time you take them apart the thruster will just drop out. You have to put a hose clamp around the tube to keep it from falling in the water or on the ground. John "Moon Dog" SM248
