I will send a picture tonight.   It is on the inboard side of the toe rail and potentially could be a toe breaker but there is a genoa car adjuster with lined running above it that helps keep people from walking too close to the outer rail.  I'll post the pictures later.

Hi Bob.
Does the cleat lie over the genoa track on the toe rail?  Do you have any pictures?
We've considered through bolting a cleat to the side deck but it would have to be located far enough away from the toe rail to be workable and then creates an "obstacle" and something to trip over.

On our Maramu we have a stainless cleat mounted horizontally to the toe rail amidship.  It's through bolted through the toe rail and is very secure.  I can pass springlines or breast lines through the opening in the toe rail.  It works well for me.

Now that JAZZ, Maramu 144, is getting ready to finally go back into the water after a 3 year refit I'm puzzled by the lack of mid-ship dock cleats. To those of you with Maramus, how to you rig spring lines? Has anyone installed cleats? One solution we're considering is fitting cleats that attach to the genoa sheet tracks.

Thanks for your help.

hi there

i put some cleats on the genoa sheet track as you mentioned. they worked very well, but i never really put too much force on it. spring lines i always rigged from the bow or stern cleats - just have long enough lines with you, they even damp better with the lenght...

only once i used them for the mooring lines which come out of the water. because the marina was very small and we actually too long, they were anchored below our bow and we ran them midships. but then the force was more downwards.

one hint: always flush them to get/keep the salt out.

Re: [Amel] Transmission dipstick

richard03801@...
 

Pat we use AFT in the Amel transmission. DO NOT use motor oil. When checking ATF level the level is a noted in the earlier posting un-screwed.
By the way it is a good idea to change the AFT at least once a year and pay attention to the color and any "dust"

do not screw the dipstick down to take a measure. Does that apply to our

this appears to be a trans. fluid.

My transmission dipstick has only one mark, an indented ring approx. an inch from the end,does this mark represent full? I ask because it is so low on the stick and I would expect a low and full mark.I assume it is the full mark but thought I had better varify my assumption.

Re: Transmission dipstick

rossirossix4
 

Yes. That line, very near the lower end of the dip stick is "full". Excess fluid will blow out the vent and may cause problems if over-filled. By the way, on Hurth and perhaps other transmissions the reading is taken when the stick collar rests on top of the case, NOT when it is screwed all the way in. Look in your manual or look online for your transmission model to see its capacity...usually these do not take much fluid. Also, even when the fluid is dark and needs to be changed it looks quite light, almost invisible on the stick. Most of these transmissions "splash" the fluid. This is why the engine does not need to be started periodically when the prop is driving the shaft alternator.

Richard- thanks for the info. I'm actually in PAM as well (or will be in 2-3 days).....slip F-32. Great suggestion on the pump.  I've contacted Amel and am awaiting price and availability info on this part. When I back to Annapolis I will take the walk to Fawcett Marine you suggested and see what they have in metric sizes. How much did you pay to switch out the pump, and what prompted your decision to go that route ?

Tom don't know your location in Annapolis, if you can get to Fawcett Marine on Forest/Bayridge Road they have a large selection of pressure hose. If you get to Back Creek, Port Annapolis Marina you can walk from there. The biggest West Marine in the area is just up there street.
If my memory is right it is a 3/4 ID hose. Make sure your replacement will support 50 psi.
Our Amel SM 209 is there PAM now we took out the Amel pressure system and installed a pressure on demand pump two years ago with no tank and no issues. You may also want to put a charcoal filter ahead of the pump that way you filter out clorine and stuff before it goes into you system and water maker.
Good luck

The hose that failed is an equalizer hose between the pump body and a pressure reserve device (accumulator) and is a specifically manufactured piece that has threaded end fittings.
