We are completing our full conversion to Lithium batteries next week on the Amel Caraibe dock at Le Marin, Martinique. Our Eno oven cooker is being replaced with the Italian made Horizon 3 Electric Oven with Induction Cooktop.
The Eno oven cooker is in perfect working condition and has had very little use. If any Amel owner could use this oven, make us an offer. Have arranged with the Amel Caraibe Le Marin workshop to store this oven for an Amel owner if needed. I have spare parts - jets, switches etc.
Also have 3 x 23.5 litre fibre glass (can visually see the gas level) LPG bottles which fit securely in the gas locker. I have many different Countries connectors to self refill these bottles.  
Please make us an offer if any Amel owner could use this gear.
Best Regards

Hi Barry, I would love to get your spare parts especially the switches as a previous owner melted a couple of ours. Could you send me a picture of the spares so I can make sure they are the same.

I asked her for a quote for the parts to replace the standing on my Amel 55 and it was about 12k euros.

Hello Jarek, 
our chain was delivered by WASI. I am not sure if they manufactured it in their company or if it was produced by Wälder. I think it was done by Wälder. We bought the chain in 2002 and sailed in tropical waters in 2005, 2008 and 2009. In 2006 and 2007 we spent our time in Argentina and Chile with moderate water temperatures.
The chain is still in use today without any problems or signs of corrosion.
We never had any problems in tropical waters, no rust, no pitting. During long periods in the locker some parts of the chain showed small spots with a light film of initial rust but it was polished by the ground as soon as the chain was in use again. These spots never showed deep rust or pitting. In our opinion there are only two options for tropical waters: chromox or traditional galvanized steel.

Reminder: An Amel Survey by Olivier Beaute

When: Saturday, 16 January 2021, 20:00 to 21:00, (GMT+00:00) UTC

Description:

All,

 

It is my great pleasure to announce that Olivier Beaute will present at our first ZOOM Meeting of 2021. It will be held on 16 January 2021 20:00 to 21:00 UTC. Details:

 

Many members of the Amel Yacht Owners Group trained on their new Amels with Olivier in La Rochelle. Many of us relied on Olivier as the manager of Amel SAV. And, a substantial number of our Group have used Olivier's surveys when purchasing their pre-owned Amels. As most of you know, after a long and successful career with Amel, Olivier Beaute went into the survey business and established ATLANTIC YACHT SURVEY.

 

The topic of Olivier's ZOOM Meeting will be "An Amel Survey." His presentation will last about 30 minutes with 30 minutes for questions. Tilo Peters will monitor, queue, and ask Olivier your texted questions.  

 

This meeting will be very good for all of our members. 

  • Members who own an Amel will someday face having their Amel surveyed. These members will be interested in how to maintain and prepare their boat for a survey and some of the common things that are overlooked by Sellers in preparation to sell their Amel. This will be important information to know in advance of a survey. 
  • Members who are searching for an Amel will need a survey to complete the purchase. These members will enjoy learning more about the survey process, especially the Olivier Beaute survey process. This should be extremely valuable.

I suspect that this meeting may book to capacity and urge you to register soon.

Re: ULTRA anchor 45KG or 35KG

Martin Birkhoff
 

Hallo Jarek,
we have the 45 kg Ultra connected to a chain 13 mm, steel material code 1.4462 (Duplex or Cromox), working load 88.5 kN, breaking load 177 kN made by Ketten-Wälder, Germany. Connector is the original Ultra Flip Swivel by Ultra Marine.
The original chain 10 mm , same material, is fixed to an 30 kg Bügel anchor both made by WASI, connector is an WASI powerball.

We made best experiences with the latter system on our circumnavigation done with a 12 m aluminum sloop. Except one little aspect: the tiny little grub screws of these power-balls are made of stainless steel 1.4401 (316) meaning the threads of these screws corrode in warm water. You have to have a look on them and change them from time to time.

Hello again. I have the WASI 10 mm that came with the boat, but I am planning to change it for the Cromox 10 mm. since I want 100 m. rather than the 70 that I currently have.

Re: ULTRA anchor 45KG or 35KG

Jarek Zemlo
 

Thank you all for information and advice. Could you share what type of chain (size, material, break load) you use for 45KG and 35KG. I like to keep 8mm but go for stronger 8mm G70 with 70KN break load (less weight on the bow)
Look forward to your reply

Re: Replacing C Drive mounts while boat is in the water.

Ian Park

Craig forgot to mention that there is a ring fixed directly above the C Drive (he told me that) which is there to lift the C Drive or take its weight should you need to do so. You may have to dig around in the soundproofing to find it. I have just finished checking my mountings and realigning everything. I found a few photos of Craig removing the C Drive from the boat and one showed how he put a rope round the C Drive cross beam to hoist it.  you may feel more comfortable taking the weight off the C Drive mounting using this system.

PS. To Craig. Thanks for all your help this summer about realignment.. I got home and bought a chain lift to have a proper go at the job. I had the Amel tool made, but on my Santorin the shaft coupling worked equally well. The coupling systems seem to be different on some of the SMs, especially with the shaft brake. One thing I found when double checking the alignment, was to reassemble the shaft coupling and Vetus coupling  with shorter (4" ) bolts. I could then slide the whole assembly on the drive shaft, across the empty space where the alternator pulley would normally be and found the ends of the Vetus  bolts slide neatly into the gearbox holes.


Re: Replacing C Drive mounts while boat is in the water.

eric freedman
 

The Vetus coupling shown in those photos is the one from Vetus. It is not the one that is mounted on the Amel’s. Amel machines the coupling shown in the photo to fit their engines. The one in the photo will not work. You need to get the correct one only from Amel.

Paul,

Changing the C-Drive mounts is quite straightforward and pretty much exactly as Craig describes.  See the picture below:



Remove the nuts circled in Red above from the mounting studs. Then remove the mounting stud from each C-Drive mount.  Then remove the bolts circled in Yellow that bolt the C-drive mount to the engine mounting frame.  Once you do that you can slide the old C-Drive mounts out from under the mounting frame and slide the new ones in.  As I understand it, the mounts should be adjusted so they are just barely starting to support the weight of C-Drive.  If you crank them up too much you will put strain on the rubber hose that is keeping the water out of the boat.  To relieve any strain, you can loosen the top two hose clamps on the large rubber hose (water will come in) and they tighten them back up.  

All of the documents that I uploaded to the old Yahoo forums were transferred here when we moved off Yahoo so they are here somewhere.  In order to make it easier to find, I just created a new Photo Album called Engine to C-Drive Alignment here:  https://amelyachtowners.groups.io/g/main/album?id=259361

Re: Replacing C Drive mounts while boat is in the water.

Craig Briggs
 

Hi Paul,
It's been a while but as I recall you can disassemble the frame members around the "C" drive upper and then easily slip in the new mounts. The "C" drive is happy to sit by itself on its "trumpet" and the big rubber hose while you do this. Then adjust the mounts to "share the load" with the trumpet and retain alignment with the transmission output shaft. You could loosen the clamps on the hose to be sure it seats happily, but will likely be back in exactly the same orientation. Can certainly be done in the water.
Good fun, 
Craig,

Re: Unknown Part found #spares

Hi Ruedi. The wooden part is a puzzle, have never seen anything like it on any of the Amels I have ever been on. Not big enough for a spare emergency tiller cabin top plug .

 

The nut and locking tab washer are for the fixed pitch propellor.

 

 

All the best,

Joel

Hello Amelians

Does anyone know the following two part I found in a box from the former owner. 
1st. is a round wood piece with 60mm (70mm) in diameter and 53mm in length. I have no idea for the wood piece; - maybe a alignment tool?
2nd. metal (probably brass) screw-nut (see pictures).

Any idea of what these parts are? Thanks and best regards

I just found this post from Mark McGovern, posted 10/07/18, with information from Oliver Beaute

The part that refers to the C-Drive mounts I have made the text BOLD.
It looks like  Mark posted pictures to the old Yahoo site but I have not been able to locate them yet on this site. 

https://amelyachtowners.groups.io/g/main/topic/29770137#42506


10/07/18   

Hello Mark,

 

this is something you probably can do, considering your "automotive" background.

 

The main thing is to be meticulous.

 

First about your questions:

-You don't absolutely need to replace the VETUS coupling if it is in good 

condition:

       -the steel rods that hold the rubber "donuts" must not have moved from the 

steel hub, if so, replace the coupling

       -the holes for the bolts should not be damaged (ovalized), otherwise, replace 

the coupling

However, you will probably need to replace the donuts, easy to buy from VETUS.

 

If you need to replace the whole VETUS coupling, it is a standard coupling from VETUS, for a 35mm diameter shaft, with a key way for the C-drive input shaft BUT AMEL has the aluminium part machined in order it  "enters" the gear-box flange. You will see this when the gear-box is disconnected from the coupling (and if you compare with your new VETUS coupling).

 

Before touching the tools, make pictures and take notes (measurements of all the fittings, position of the nuts on the rubber mounts, position of the engine on the steel cradle, position of the shaft brake disc, etc...).

 

Start with disconnecting the hoses that could prevent you from moving the engine backwards on its cradle.

 

Then undo the coupling bolts and the engine steel supports' bolts (attaching the engine on the steel cradle).

 

Then move the engine backwards enough to remove the coupling bolts.

 

Undo the C-drive bolts of its rubber mounts. 

 

Remove these mounts. 

 

The C-drive will be held by the big rubber sleeve at the bottom.

Lift the engine just enough to be able to lift the cradle and remove and replace the YANMAR mounts with their lower nut set approximately like the previous ones were.

Re-install the C-drive mounts.

Then comes the alignment process.

 

AMEL uses a tool which is a steel coupling machined so that its aft side "enters" the gear-box flange (see pictures and drawing). You can also pre-install the new coupling and adjust the position of the mounts.

 

First bring the engine forward and make sure the coupling is centered with the gear-box flange, and can enter the gap in the flange. 

 

Then move the engine a little bit backwards and check that the gap between the flange and the aft side of the coupler is even all around the circumference. To adjust this, you need "thickness wedges" (used in the automotive industry) and play with the rubber mounts nuts to make the gap even.

 

Then bring the engine forward and tighten the bolts on the cradle and on the mounts.

 

The advantage of using the tool AMEL uses is that it is easier to install while checking the gaps.

If you need to make one, here's a drawing of the alignment tool for a YANMAR 4JH3-HTE.

The inside diameter (C-drive input shaft) is 35 mm.

The outside diameter is 100 mm.

The diameter of the part that enters the gear-box flange cylindric gap is 62.8 mm, thickness 3 mm.

 

You should use a VETUS fixed coupling for 35mm shafts, then have it machined to make the 62.8mm "plug" and drilled for the four bolts that should match the flange holes.

 

I think AMEL still sells the VETUS machined coupling, you will ask Maud when she's back from holidays.

 

Hope this is clear enough.

 

Best regards.
