Converting front cabin to double bad

Slavko Despotovic
 

First, thanks to all for advice regarding push switch for windlass. Back to the topic. How one can convert front cabin bad to double bad? Was this original from Amel or one had to order separatly? If so, where?

Thank you.

Hi Everyone,
Thanks for the info.
Scott, you are correct about antenna condition and quality.
I did notice that with the AIS connected to the mainmast antenna the range was better than the mizzen antenna, but both good. 
My VHF works perfectly and has amazing range. Last year I talked to another Amel owner 60 miles away, clear as a bell.

Thanks so much Ryan, that’s great, I had just PM’d Bill, and he didn’t know, so I was resigned to using regular double braid, (which I am sure would work fine), when your reply came in.  i have one good set, it will be nice for them to be symmetrical.    The source might be something to add to the book Bill?   Thank you both for your responses to my queries,  I appreciate it.

Re: VHF antennas

Scott SV Tengah
 

Nick, 

I know this is nicking pits, but check your AIS receiving AND sending range. My A54 came with the Banten antenna on both main and mizzen (VHF and AIS, respectively) and both had failed.

I noticed the failure on the VHF antenna when I could barely hear the admiral on a handheld a few hundred meters from the boat. She could not hear me at all, indicating that a quality cable/antenna setup is more important for transmission. I replaced it all with RG-8X from mast to VHF radio and both reception and transmission improved dramatically.

Same with the AIS antenna. Earlier I'd see boats maybe 10nm away. Now I can see cargo ships 40nm+ away. I am certain my transmission has improved too.

Cheap to replace with a Shakespeare VHF antenna and RG-8X and not too difficult as you can re-use the existing holes in the mast to mount the antenna. Search for my posts on the replacement if you want to do it. You will connect rigging to bonding as a result, but that's not a bad thing as Amel started doing it in 2009.

I used VHF antennas for both applications so the mizzen one can act as a backup VHF antenna. In other words, I didn't get an AIS tuned mizzen antenna.

Hope this helps.

Volvo buys their sensors from Bosch, puts in a Penta box and charges you 5x. Maybe that's the cost of the green paint? :)

New Bow wash down

Kevin Schmit
 

Good morning!

While anchoring this summer in New England, we noted that the existing Amel wash down system was no match for Yankee mud.

I wanted to augment/improve the system so i installed a 3 way diverter valve below decks with an above deck garden hose fitting so I can control saltwater flow and volume. Will make a good dinghy wash down while stowing on deck too.

Re: Storage Hatch gaskets

 

Pat,

Compression set and set memory were the biggest issues with the D profile gasket I bought to replace the original gasket, and the original had the same issue, except it didn't happen as quickly as the replacement.

My guess is the foam density was the issue, with the Amel OEM being denser. 

Knowing what I know, and  based on my experience with the OEM and a US substitute, I believe I would go with the new gasket used on the Amel 50 and source it from Amel.

Re: Mastervolt / XANTRAX Battery Monitor -

Rudolf Waldispuehl
 

Hi Ulrich

 

As promised a while ago (excuse the delay) here the settings I have.

I changed 2 years ago from standard lead acid to AGM and just changed one or two parameter according to the battery specifications.

 

According to the Xantrex Manual:

For most battery systems, adjusting the values of Functions F01, F02, F03, F07, F08 should be sufficient.

“It is recommended not to change F04, F05, F06, F09, F10 – F20 when in doubt”.

 

All *marked Values are default settings by Xantrax. The other parameter I have changed over time by gaining more experience and confident.

 

F01        600AH                  (I have 12x 100AH AGM)

F02        27.2V                    according to the AGM Specs I have installed

F03        1 %

F04        *4 min

F05        *50 %

F06        *80%

F07        23.8V

F08        29.8V

F09        *AU

F10        *1.25

F11        25V

F12        *0.5%

F13        *3min.

F14        *0.0A

F15        *C

F16        *1-1

F17        60 S

F18        *NO

F19        1.13

F20        *OFF

 

Hope this helps for you Ulrich. I will call you sometime today on whatsup.

Our XANTREX Akku Monitor on WASABI A54#55 does have 20 settings (Parameters). I played around with it last year and found out it is more a monitoring and alarming systems. So the settings are for example to set low/high voltage threshold, etc. The manual says that there are parameters which should be kept as default, and some important one can/should be adapted. 

 

I’m back on WASABI by mid of March and can send you the settings which I have on our AMEL-54. We can even talk on whatsup or Skype if you like.

Hi Bill, Servus Wolfgang,

 

THX for your quick response. But our´s square housing shaped Xantrex is in the product data sheet only as "Xantrex Akku Monitor" named. No "Link , Link Pro, Link Lite" or so.

 

I found in the Web the same manual as we have obviously on board, but the listing of values to adjust is little different as Wolfgang mentioned, regarding his LinkLite.

May be I can match these settings over on ours? It´s a Monitor, not a charging management, mhm?

 

If there is anybody in the Group who’s is familiar with same type of monitor, he is able to sent me the correct adjustments (24V), very much appreciated. 

 

THX for help.

Best wishes and stay safe.

 

Ulrich.

There were 2 different versions of the Xantrex battery monitor used on 54s. 

 

I believe the Link 10 was used on early 54s, the LinkPro on mid-build 54s, and if I am not mistaken, Mastervolt on the last 54s.

Hello Wolfgang, and other related Amelians,

 

your hint and listing of the Xantrex values are very interesting and important for me. we also have the Xantrex battery monitor on "Soleil Bleu" #088, as I'm sure many other 54s do. However, in the operator's manual I find a different listing of the positions as you describe. I have always wanted to readjust our Xantrex, also because we installed a complete AGM bank with Victrons 110 Ah last year, but I don't know the correct basic settings in the Xantrex for Amel 54. Do you perhaps have a newer Xantrex than we do? The manual I have just called up on the net is from Oct 2004. We took over the setting from the previous owner, with classic lead-acid batteries. Surely there are differences? 

 

Thank you for your much appreciated recommendations.

 

Fair finds and stay safe.

Dear Greg,

I did receive your fabulous message and replied to say thanks a lot - didn't you get this?

Please look up your Junk folders too - I recently got messages that I get (false positively) suspected.

Thanks again for your help!

I have now found the antenna cable end; it was connected to my ICOM SSB, I guess the DSC receiving, anyhow I have put it on my new AIS and all works.

There is one more stubby antenna on top the mizzen?
 Anyone know what that one is?

Yes it is a small world. I am nostalgic just thinking about all the  ocean  passages. Some easy and others not so, but  every one of them left me feeling fulfilled and perhaps thinking that the world is actually quite large, at least from the deck of a small boat.

Nick,

On the Super Maramu there is a removable panel in the aft head on the upper, inboard side of the forward bulkhead that give us access to the cables coming down the Mizzen mast including the AIS Antenna, Radar, Weather Fax, and Cockpit Light.  I don't know if it is the same on the 54.

I think I met your mate Kevin(?)  a few weeks back at Herrington Harbor North Marina in Deale, Maryland USA.  It's about 20 miles south of Annapolis.  He says he helped you sail Amelia across the Atlantic.  What a small world we live in!

Hello, in my 54 (16) there is a vhf antenna on the mizzen mast.  The aerial cable has a connection in the aft cabin shower with another cable which goes to the chart table.  At the chart table, the cable is on hold (coiled up and not connected, there is no plug at the end).  There is a label (mizzen link) indicating its function.
