I have not had to solve that particular problem, but it sounds like a rivnut might be an answer instead of a molly-bolt


Another creative solution, might be to get a sheet of 3/8" thick G10.  Epoxy it down on top of the existing fiberglass base.  If you go slow and are very careful with a sharp new tap you can drill and tap it.  It is strong enough to hold threads, and is non-corroding.  I have used it a lot as backing plates.  It usually comes in a light green color that is not horrible to the eye.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Securing dinghy ashore

Danny, No doubt you are right , if someone has a large cable/chain cutter , I guess they can steal your dinghy , no matter what you do. Its a shame , every time we go ashore I am concerned about losing my ride back to my boat . I have sailed to Annapolis probably 60 times over the last 40 yrs., I have never heard of a dinghy being stolen , although it probably has happened. The dinghy dock gets very crowded at the show, more likely someone moved yours to get their dinghy out. I remember well meeting you and about four other Amels there many years ago , we had a party , good times. Say hey ! to Yvonne .
Sail On,
Pat SM Shenanigans

Hi Pat,
I think all the locking methods only stop the impulse thefts. If someone sets out to steel a dinghy and comes equipped they're going to get one no matter what we do. One time we were at the Annapolis boat show. We came back and found ours shifted but tied up again. The Mercury 4 stroke outboard we had was a bit hard to start and if you got it wrong it had a kick back that would break your arm. Might have saved us a new dinghy  and left a thief with a sore arm.

Good morning Pat,

My solution is probably extrem e.

Last year I purchased small length of 3/8 chain and 1/2 chains to secure dinghy and bicycles.

Then I realized the eyes on the dinghy to secure it are about 10 mm made of aluminium, so they will be cut quicker than the chain, so I use the 3/8 chain.

I use the 1/2 inch chain to secure my bicycles (around cleat, pole, etc.).
When people see its size of the chain they smile (many take pictures).
I assume/hope that a thief (a lazy person to start with) will be discouraged of cutting off such chain and look for another victim.
For the lock I use the German Made ABUS Granit which are Level 10
https://www.abus.com/eng/Mobile-Security/Marine/Padlocks/GRANIT-37-55-S-038-S

All the chains can also be linked together using shackles for my 2nd anchor.

The last time we were in the Caribbean
I secured my dinghy with a cable that was encased in gray
plastic . I think it was called Kryptonite , I was told by a
friend and where I bought it , that it was very difficult to
cut. Well I just cut it very easily with a very short
handled cable cutter. When we go ashore , I like to think
that are dinghy will be there when we get back . So does
anyone have a suggestion as to t he most secure way to secure
a dinghy. Nothing is bullet proof , but I want to get as
close as possible.Thanks,
PatSM Shenanigans

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Securing dinghy ashore

Patrick McAneny
 

Bill, I don't know the thickness of the cable I had, what ever Lowes stocks. Did not know it was available thicker . I was shocked how easy it was to cut . Fortunately / Unfortunately we have a dinghy we love , but thieves may love more , a  10.5' AB aluminum with a 18 hp. two stroke , both almost new. You did not say what you used .
Thanks,
Pat SM #123

Pat,

In my experience, "Kryptonite" flex cable comes in several thicknesses and the one that is between 3/8" and 7/16" is difficult to cut. The thieves usually steal the best available dinghy with the easiest-to-cut cable.

But, if you have a nice dinghy and/or a stupid crook, you may lose your dinghy no matter what you do. BTW, most crooks hate 4 cycle Hondas, and love 15+ hp 2 cycle engines.

Hi Bill,
Yes, the tub empties.
There is no sound to indicate the motor is running or trying to start,  but I haven't opened it up to look inside yet.

 Finding someone to work on it is problematic, and I think it's above my pay grade without someone to guide me every step of the way...unless it's something simple like a capacitor or relay.  I don't have any schematics or repair manual.

Anybody know someone on the Chesapeake who might be able to help me with it?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Down wind sail configuration

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

If you raise 2 headsails on one foil with 2 halyards, you will not be able to furl without dropping the additional (second) sail. 

Think about what will happen to the second halyard when furling. Amel's special swivel which allows you to secure the second sail and remove its halyard is the only solution. And, it requires 3 slots. The 3rd is for the "dehooker."

Hi Danny,
In the USA they have a four wire system. If you use one of the hot wires and neutral you get 110V . If you use the two hot wires you can get 220V @ 60Hz. It's a bit bizarre to us 220/240V folk....but that's the way it is.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Low pressure pump for the 160 liter Watermaker

Alan Leslie
 

Hi guys
There are quite a few different March pumps.
You need to be careful to specify the flow and pressure requirements before deciding which one to buy.
Remember they are centrifugal pumps not positive displacement pumps so there are direct relationships between flow and pressure on both in flow and outflow. The March website has lots of info and flow / pressure graphs to help you work out which one is best for your specific application.
Cheers

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Low pressure pump for the 160 liter Watermaker

Barry Connor
 

Hi Dean,

I bought the March pump from Tom Martland at  "flagshipmarine.com" in Florida USA.
I found Tom's price cheaper than the March distributors.

The unit was the:
March magnetic pump 510gph  220v - 230v,  50hz/60hz  with barbs and mounting plate. You need to make sure Tom supplies this one and not the normal US 110v unit.

Fitting was no problem, put some rubber gasket under the mounting plate to reduce any vibration. 
When I was in Hyeres they did not have the normal Amel replacement pump in stock so I found this March pump in USA. I had it shipped to Marseille in a few days.
My original pump was sticking and we pulled it apart in Hyeres and I thought that we had freed it up but it went back to getting stuck straight away.
I also bought from Tom a 12v March magnetic pump to replace my Sureflow refrigeration pump. I have not done this yet.

Hope this helps.
Best Regards

Re: Base for Jabsco Quiet Flush head Brojen

greatketch@...
 

I have not had to solve that particular problem, but it sounds like a rivnut might be an answer instead of a molly-bolt

Another creative solution, might be to get a sheet of 3/8" thick G10.  Epoxy it down on top of the existing fiberglass base.  If you go slow and are very careful with a sharp new tap you can drill and tap it.  It is strong enough to hold threads, and is non-corroding.  I have used it a lot as backing plates.  It usually comes in a light green color that is not horrible to the eye.

Base for Jabsco Quiet Flush head Brojen

karkauai
 

Hi all.
On my last passage, the base of my foreword Quiet Flush Jabsco head broke. Jabsco has changed the base and the old ones are no longer available. The new base doesn't have the outboard bolt holes to bolt it to the fiberglass pan, only 3 bolt holes on the perimeter of the base. The fore and aft holes line up with the old ones. The inboard hole is barely on the edge of the flat part of the cabin sole, I drilled it but found no backing plate to tap. There is no access without removing the fiberglass shower enclosure.

I'm thinking of cutting a hole in the fiberglass under the head, and epoxying a piece of stainless underneath where the inboard hole is, then drilling and tapping it.

I might be able to drill a big enough hole to insert a Molly bolt, but not sure I can get it to tighten up with nothing to hold it under the flooring.

Has anyone else dealt with this problem? Solution?

Is there any down side to cutting a fist-sized hole in the shower pan?

I could move the head outboard a centimeter or so to give myself a flat surface to work with, no more as the macerator motor won't allow it. Any thoughts about that?

Does anyone know the configuration of the backing plates under the original holes?

Thank you for any thoughts.

In my experience, "Kryptonite" flex cable comes in several thicknesses and the one that is between 3/8" and 7/16" is difficult to cut. The thieves usually steal the best available dinghy with the easiest-to-cut cable.

But, if you have a nice dinghy and/or a stupid crook, you may lose your dinghy no matter what you do. BTW, most crooks hate 4 cycle Hondas, and love 15+ hp 2 cycle engines.

Best,

Thanks all, it sounds like everyone is using chain, which is heavy and can be cut , I was hoping someone had discovered a flexible cable that was difficult to cut . I guess its chain and keeping the insurance premiums paid.

Thanks Again,

Good morning Pat,

My solution is probably extreme.

Last year I purchased small length of 3/8 chain and 1/2 chains to secure dinghy and bicycles.

Then I realized the eyes on the dinghy to secure it are about 10 mm made of aluminium, so they will be cut quicker than the chain, so I use the 3/8 chain.

I use the 1/2 inch chain to secure my bicycles (around cleat, pole, etc.).
When people see its size of the chain they smile (many take pictures).
I assume/hope that a thief (a lazy person to start with) will be discouraged of cutting off such chain and look for another victim.
For the lock I use the German Made ABUS Granit which are Level 10
https://www.abus.com/eng/Mobile-Security/Marine/Padlocks/GRANIT-37-55-S-038-S

All the chains can also be linked together using shackles for my 2nd anchor.

The last time we were in the Caribbean
I secured my dinghy with a cable that was encased in gray
plastic . I think it was called Kryptonite , I was told by a
friend and where I bought it , that it was very difficult to
cut. Well I just cut it very easily with a very short
handled cable cutter. When we go ashore , I like to think
that are dinghy will be there when we get back . So does
anyone have a suggestion as to the most secure way to secure
a dinghy. Nothing is bullet proof , but I want to get as
close as possible.Thanks,
PatSM Shenanigans

Dean,

Yes, that 10 mf run capacitor is the most common failed part when the pump is doing what you say. Of course there could be other causes.

Mark Erdos makes a very good point about the best replacement for the pump.

Bill, are you referring to the 10uF (10 microFarad) cap which is in the box on top of the pump?
