Re: Color code of hull Amel 54

 

I agree. Even if you had the original color codes or even a container of the original material, it is not going to match the color of your boat today.

I received following answer from Maud at Amel.

There is no RAL for the white color of the hull. The only solution is to use a spectrometer and try to find the most approaching tone locally.

Hi Alexander, I notice in your tag line you sign off with “the first gold line” (Amel 54). Other than updated cosmetics, is there any difference between that and previous Amel 54’s (i.e. like the Red Line Super Maramu’s after 2003)?  Thanks.

Below you find the original answer from CNVP (Societé Naval de Vieux Port) in La Rochelle, they are THE competent company in LR for this, and they have installed an extra bow protection and have made more fiberglass and GelCoat work on SY Oceanica I. The answer to your quenstions is: There is no colour code, makes no sense also, because the colour is changing with the years. Find a real good specilaist on gelcoat, check the actual colour with a spectrometer and let a specialist mix te colour induvidually for you. It is an effort, but the only way to be happy after the repairs!

Google translation of the key sentence: For gelcoat shades, AMEL does not give the references or RALs of their color, but if you need to reproduce the color you have to go through a professional with a color spectrometer (or spectrophotometer).

Pour les teintes de gelcoat, AMEL ne donne pas les références ou RAL de leur couleur mais si vous avez besoin de reproduire la teinte il faut passer par un professionnel avec un spectromètre (ou spectrophotomètre) de couleur.

Re: Santorin Bow Thruster/genoa furler breaker.

VICTOR MOLERO
 

Hello. I have lost the 8 rivets that hold the genoa roller to the grey piece to handle it manually when disengaged from the furler engine. I don't know how to replace them :-( Any idea of where to find instructions to do it...? Thanks in advance.

Masse Negative Leak solved

Thank you all for the excellent advice.
I have found and solved the problem...
It was the Bowthruster after all. A build up of carbon dust from the brushes on top of the commutator bridged up to the top bearing housing. I stripped down the whole top section, removed the brushes took off top brush holding part. I could then access the commutator and even vacuum out by the magnets. I polished the commutator with 1200 grit and scraped out the grooves.
Thanks again

Re: Rub Rail insert

Bill Hall
 

Hi Pat,
Bill Hall, looking to be an Amel owner.   Do you plan to leave the rub rail die with the vender?   You could also place it with Bill Rouse.  Future rub rail orders could contribute for using the die.  Would benefit many.
Just a thought.

Re: A54: Cable length between main mast head and chart table

Hello,
Main mast top to the wirebox above front aisle door is exact 20 meters. 

From there you find a cable canal to the nav table.

Hi all,

Does anyone know the precise length of cable required to go from the top of the main mast to the chart table through the standard conduit on the Amel 54? For instance for the VHF antenna cable.

I’m considering using an pre-crimped FME-terminated RG-8x VHF cable and I need to select the correct length.

A contact at Pochon said « probably » 25m and a trusted owner said maybe 28m.

Re: A54: Cable length between main mast head and chart table

Hi S&T,

No problem, an approx length is good enough. I want to replace both the VHF and the AIS cables in the resp. masts.

Ciao,
Arno


Re: Color code of hull Amel 54

 

Unfortunately, all I have with some certainty for the 54 is the Red color which is RAL 3003 Ruby Red. I suggest you ask SAV"@"amel.fr

Also, there are numerous colors on the "hull & deck." You need to be specific. I believe the 54 has 4 separate gelcoat colors. If you get all of these from Amel, please post here and share the information with all 54 owners.

Please ,if interested in the new group buy respond to the recent post titled “Rub rail purchase” or better yet email me personally. I will not monitor the old Feb. post,nor respond to it.

Re: A54: Cable length between main mast head and chart table

Hi Arno,

With antenna connected up the mast, we needed ~19.60m +/- 50cm of cable to get to the junction. Sorry about the low precision but
I’m only confident about the overall length from antenna to the nav station because it was easy to measure the surplus.

Hope that helps
