views on:<br>1)the quality of the Amel sailing
experience<br>2)things to know about the Amel purchase experie ce
(e.g.
options, defects, resale value, service,financial terms,
contracting,etc). Thanks.
Two things you ought to go for are a 160 litre per min watermaker amd
a vinyl window in the bimini over the helmsmans seat so that you can
see the sails when the bimini is open.The latter is free or cheap if
ordered initially and expensive if they have to remove the bimini
afterwards to install it. I would also recommend having the
removeable backcurtain fitted to the rear of the bimini,invaluable in
poor weather and the port side of it can be folded forward on top of
the bimini to keep the sun off the helmsman.It is easily tied forward
to the clips on the fixed part.

Two possible solutions. Either mount the radio on brackets beneath
theinstrument panels or remove the logo panel and hinge it.It is
held in place by four screws from behind and also fixed with double
sided sticky tape. It can be prised of carefully and hinged to let
down on a stay and held closed with a small piece of industrial
velcro or something similar.
I will try to post photos when we get back to Bali Hai in Malta next
week. The SSB can be supplied with 12 volts from an isolated
Alphatronics switchmode converter a a fraction of the cost of the
type supplied by SSB companies. Cosider having a ham set instead of
an SSB. It can be programmed for the SSB chanells and is much easier
to retune when the net controller suggests moving up to another
frequency. It is also much cheaper,typically about 600pounds
stlg.The output will only be 100 watts max as opposed to 150 with an
SSB but in practice this makes no difference to performance.

dear ian & judy
sorry,
i seem to have deleted the address of the website for the seame
transponder.
would you please send it to me again?

where are you located?
did amel fix a propane or butane system to your boat?
i see you have an inverter. do you find 110 volts on board helpful?
what is a bluetooth?

i ordered the hot water for the cockpit shower.
the dual racor filters are now an option.
i like the idea of adding a third coarse filter upstream of the other
pair.

Mike and Kim,

Thank goodness that your family is safe and unhurt. I'm at your
service to help out. Also, please note there's quite a few other
Sharki owners who've joined this Amel Forum and they may be able to
lend some assistance too.

Best regards,
Rich

Eric,

I have a 48 foot Maramu, which I keep on the Choptank River of the
Chesapeake Bay, just south of St Michaels. My Maramu is a little
smaller than a Super Maramu, with a full hard dodger but a smaller
main cabin.

When do you sail the ocean and where are you headed? I look forward
to this in a few years when I have my sons in college.

Hi,

My name is Antonio, two months ago I'm the hapy owner of a 1986 Amel
Sharki, I bought it in Spain to a German couple, an the boat is in
fine shape.

I could not understand wel with the German owners during the deal,
and have a lot of questions about the Sharki.

The first question, the previous owner put on the boat a folding
propelor....

What to do with the shaft alternator ????

It's great to have a group like this.

Sorry my bad English.

Best Regards,

A. Cordero

-Hello we own a 1986 Sharki is the prop folding or feathering. If it
is feathering you can put it in reverse then shut the engine down and
the prop will stay open and the prop will turn to power the
alternator.

Hope this helps.
