I searched the files section for “bonding strap” without luck, to get the dimensions where to bend the metal and the size hole required.  Do you know where the file is?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Refit

maciej@...
 

Never, ever use Emek for ANY work or even to broker any sale or purchase.

Here is my sad story.

In November 2016 I purchased an Amel SM 53 brokered by Emek. At the same time Emek sold my previous vessel.

While still at Gocek and then shortly thereafter, together we compiled a list of a basic refit works. The estimate was for about $46K. At this point all started unraveling. First of all Mr. Cakir refused to get me my proceeds for the sale of my old boat under the pretenses of the 'down payment' for this refit. So for $46K of estimated work he defrauded me of $56. When I tried to negotiate a reasonable down payment, proposing on my side 20% of his estimate and giving him a chance to come with some counteroffer he simply did not even tried to negotiate anything in good faith.

Being extremely frustrated by this situation and not getting any report on the progress of works, I contracted a captain to get my vessel out of hand of Emek and get it delivered to a place of my choosing. Mr. Cakir decided to keep both my vessel and my money hostage by flatly refusing to release her to anybody but me personally. Both the way Mr. Cakir handled my money and my vessel is such an unprincipled behavior unbecoming of a boat broker's and any honest person for that matter.

When I eventually arrived at Gocek in June 2017 I founded out that of the estimate list only part of work was done however the invoice grew from $46 to $53K!! It included $6,200 for keeping my vessel in a boatyard for several weeks just for anitfouling.

Just please do not question my intelligence while you read the rest of this horror story.

At this point instead of taking my boat and getting as far as possible from Emek and Mr. Cakir I let myself get convinced, and yes, he can be convincing and quite charming, to get even more work performed by Emek on my boat. We agreed on the cost of $87K and the deadline of August 10, 2017. While the boat was hauled out again on July 17, my wife and I were supposed to spend about 3 weeks at the local hotel after which time the vessel would be launched and ready for sea trials to straighten up all kinks with completion day of August 10.

So now we're October 24, 2017 - we had to stay at the hotel 3 months so far instead of promised 3 weeks, at the cost close to 6,000 euros.

Out of the estimated $87K of repair cost so far I've provided Emek with $57K yet still after those 3 months and substantial down payment Mr. Cakir did not purchased essential supplies needed for this refit and as the result most of the work are still not completed.

Furthermore just today Mr. Cakir tried to extort more money from me by implying that work will not be completed if I don’t cough up more funds. Talking about impudence! No effort to patch up this debacle that he’s completely responsible for.

So here I am, after spending close to $300,000, including the purchase, spending the whole summer at a hotel, my boat is stuck at a local boatyard, not sea worthy by far, kept hostage by Mr. Cakir.

Just today I hired a local lawyer and we’re staring a process of recovering my boat and money from Emek and Mr. Cakir.

This company and its owner are simply dishonest fraudsters with a thorough lack of honor end decency.

Hi,

If copper bar is not available copper tube as used (or used to be) in plumbing, flattened at each end does the job.

It is hold at the bottom by a 30 mm socket and you will need three 12” extensions to reach it.

Re: staysail mizzen setup

Jose Venegas
 

Hi Graham, 

In my SM 278, I mounted the wind generator on top of the mizzen mast and used rubber mounts to reduce any potential noise or vibration (which is not perceivable event when it blows >20).  I do have the radar mounted on the mast but it does not seem to affect whether I hoist the sail starboard or port as long as I pass it on the proper side of the main back stay.  Although my mizzen staysail is the original and a little bit overused, it can still give me one extra nut when the relative wind is behind the beam.  My next purchase will be one that I can use with lower angles in low wind conditions. Unless you move your wind generator to the top of the mast, I don’t see how you can use the mizzen staysail. I will try to upload a pix or two.

 

Fair winds,

 

Jose,

Re: Need diesel tank access

eamonn.washington@...
 

I will again suggest that he takes some safety precautions, such as the suggestions here (dry ice, N2, CO2).

There is no room at the top of the tank to make inspection hatches (only possible if the tank is out of the boat).  So he will make 2 wide inspection hatches both of which overlap 2 compartments by 20cm each, thus giving access to all 4 compartments.  These will be near the top of the tank facing but above the engine.  He says he has cut diesel tanks many times, no explosion risk from diesel, but he will have a mate watch him the whole time with a fire extinguisher in case of a fire.  I am letting the tank naturally ventilate via the top electric gauge, before he cuts next week.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] staysail mizzen setup

Danny and Yvonne SIMMS
 

Hi,

In my 8 years I have used the mizzen stay sail often and have never sheeted it to the mizzen boom. I have an eye on the gunwale forward of the aft mooring cleat that I clip a block to. I run it through another turning block to line up to the winch. My wind generator is a a German made Super Wind and is on top of the mizzen. Fantastic location for it. The super wind has self feathering blades that work in strong winds so there is no need to secure the blades in extreme conditions. Agree about the back stay, no problem, just flip around it.

Regards

Danny

I am pretty sure that having a wind generator on the front of the mizen mast takes the mizzen staysail out of the picture.  I can not see a good way to make sure that the halyard and sail don't get sucked into the blades.  Even if the blades aren't turning, they are going to be a serious hazard to the rather delicate nylon sail.  Maybe somebody else has worked out how to make that happen safely...


Probably the easiest way to attach a block to the end of the mizzen boom is with a spliced loop of spectra or dyneema line larksheaded to the boom that the sheet block then clips to.  From there it will need to go to a block down by the gunwale so you can get a proper lead to a winch.  The mizzen boom is way too high to run the sheet straight to a winch--it WILL over-ride and make a mess.

I am confused about the problem with the back stay...  Just lift the working end of the halyard  over the back stay to the other side... and give it a flip to get it on the proper side of the radar.  What's the issue?

Hmm yes i think i understand the problem yo describe with the backstay in the way.... hopefully someone will explain :)

Did you , like others seem to have, attach the mizzen staysail sheets to the mizzed boon outboard end?

I cant quite picture this myself

I presume i'd add a snap shackle to the end of the mizzen boom and run the sheet from the clew through that and back to a winch.....

Hi Miles,

Good to see another normal (i.e. not Super-) Maramu. 

I've yet to fly my foc d'artimon as I'm suffering the same confusions as you are.  I had my first try last week and it was a disaster because I didn't notice that my wind generator, which is mounted just below the radar on the mizzen mast, conflicts with the mizzen staysail halyard.  Just as I was about to attach it to the head of the sail, the wind generator wound it up and I spend nearly an hour up the mast unravelling it - fortunately smooth seas! 

However, another problem was revealed.  The mainmast backstay, which is secured at the foot of the mizzen mast, in combination with the wind generator and radar, means that I can't see any way of safely moving the halyard from one side of the boat to the other.  So at the moment, when I pluck up courage, I'll only be able to fly the mizzen staysail on the port tack! 

I'm obviously being stupid as I can't believe this is how it's meant to work. 

If anyone else has faced this problem and found a solution, please share it!

The boats that anchored out ended up on the beach save 2. That was not the case with Irma, which was weathered safely by all. I hope you're doing well these days Mark!

The trip to or from San Juan is about 21/2 hours. I made it in 2 hours last trip. You can fly into Aquadilla, and make the trip to the marina in 45 minutes or less.

Hi Courtney,
 
We do not stay in a marina unless we plan to be someplace for a month and can get a monthly rate. The short answer to your question is it depends on the island and the marina location. But rule of thumb is about US$1000 for a month, give or take a little.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Need diesel tank access

Gregory Shea
 

Eamonn, 

In the first world the preferred method is to put dry ice in the tank to displace the oxygen before cutting or welding. In the third world they connect a hose to an exhaust pipe and use exhaust gas. I have successfully used the first method when there has been an inspection hatch to pass the ice through. The second seems fraught with water vapour, unburnt fuel etc. but it is a common practice. Without an inspection hatch, I guess any inert gas injected through the fuel outlet would work. Your pros undoubtedly have their own preference.

Based on your feedback I will go for hatch covers to be made, if possible.  Where are the hatches on the SM 2000 ?

I will soon speak to the steel guy and request 3 top rectangular inspection hatches to be made in the 4 forward compartments, and one side hatch in the aft compartment (no room on top).  I was wondering about how to get all the fumes out before cutting.  Ann-Sophies idea of compressed air is good.  I thought of over filling it with water and draining.

The tank is empty now and the fuel will be cleaned outside the boat.  I am busy removing the last little scraps of insulation from the tank.

Eamonn,

    Flooding the tank with an inert gas to remove the O2 seems is the method that I used when drilling two iron tanks.  I used C02 since it was readily handy, but nitrogen should work as well.  I kept a slow flow of the gas going during the machining operations.  Depending on what gas you use, insure that the worker has a fresh air supply.

Hi


My super maramu (not 2000) has, I believe, no access to clean the tank.  I know my tank is dirty since after 25 hours running the volvo the cleaned injectors are dirty again.


The volvo is out of the boat for a rebuild (2300 hours, but internal oil leak) so this is an ideal opportunity to create access hatches to the tank and clean it.  Does anyone have the tank specification, in terms of is it a single tank or are there separate compartments, and specifically where should the access hatches be cut?


As a side question, if I installed a day tank would that be a suitable alternative?
