Hi
Eric,You offered to send Gary a
photo of your AC meter installation.  I could use this as
well.  I have a meter I'm going to install soon.
 Would appreciate a pic at your convenience.  Email is joedoakes66@...

If the marina only has 30A 110v connectors you
can
combine two of them using a"Y"
connector that then
provides 220v.

The marinas I have stayed at
that only have 30a at the post
generally can
provide these "Y" combiner adapters,
as 220v 50a is a pretty common U.S. need.



Here's one:

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Cruzpro VAF110 shore power & generator monitor

Hi Ben,

An inexpensive meter with volts, frequency, amps, and watts is the blue sea meter. Alex has well documented the installation on his Nikimat web site. We have had this meter on Aloha for 2.5 years, and have been happy with it.

I attached a page from my Amel School book which illustrates mounting it inside the storage area above the galley sink of a Super Maramu using the included sun cover as the mount.

It is especially helpful to monitor generator and shore power load (amperage) to prevent overloading either. Frankly, I would not castoff without one.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Dinghy choices?

islandpearl2_sm2k332
 

Not sure about the length of the Ocean Craft 3.0 size on a Maramu, but having sailed a Amel Santarin (similar size) recently it is a lot narrower than the SM, and that could be your problem. On our SM the 3.0 Ocean Craft works well on the fore deck on a cradle, and the width is fine too. We actually have a better outlook forwards under it now from sitting at the helm seat than we had with our previous 3.1m hypalon dingy upside down on the front deck. It is also nice to have something to hold on to when going forwards, and we can now open all our hatches without moving the dingy off the hatches. 

Ocean Craft do have a smaller one which, importantly is also narrower at 1.6m instead of 2m wide across the rear tubes. That is the one I would pick for a Maramu and the benefit is also that it would be a fair bit lighter too. You can have them cut it to pretty much whaterever length is most ideal for the Maramau. I would still have them add the same front seat/storage compartment as on the SV Island Pearl II version. 

Good luck with it.

PS. Having just gotten into salt water crocodile territory up here as we move north it's sure nice to have this dinghy instead of the rubber one.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Eberspacher Heater

Ian Shepherd
 

Hello Duane,

if you crawl into the main cockpit locker then lie on your back and look at the heater unit you will notice a second cover held by two Alan screws. This is about 9 inches long and 1.5 inches wide and is located towards the rear of the unit just below the centreline. You will see the main wiring cable entering the forward end of this cover.

If you remove the two Alan screws the cover will lift off and you will see the PCB which will slide out once you have lifted the three plugs off the pins. Take care with this. The pins are fragile and not soldered that strongly to the board.

I would suggest that the first thing you should try is a direct 24V connection to the leads that power the blower. If the blower runs, disconnect immediately as I believe the normal working voltage is around 18V. Also check that you have 24V coming down the main wiring loom to the board when the unit tries to start. If the blower runs and the supply in the loom is good, it is pointing to a fault on that PCB either with a dry joint, a bad track or maybe a faulty relay. A visual inspection with a magnifying glass may reveal a dry joint problem, and you can check the diodes, resistors and track continuity easily with a test meter.

If you get the chance to swap your ECU with another D5 owner, then that would be my first move. I wish I could let you try my ECU, but alas we are far apart.

Good luck!

Ian & Eric,


Thank you for the suggestions and help.  I apologize for not getting back to you earlier.  It's been a busy time for us.

Eric,  the Control Unit is separate from the burner unit and mounted next to the Current Regulator.  I have the manufacturers technical data booklet (including install instructions).

Ian, as you suggested I removed the duct from the inlet (aft) end and had Peg turn it off and on.  The blower did not turn at all.  I did hear a distinct "click" from the Control Unit, which I verified by holding a screwdriver to the CU and my ear.  

You noted that if a relay was working it was likely not the Control Unit, but may be a PCB at the aft end of the burner unit.  Could you give me an idea where to access the PCB?

Thanks,
Duane

JP,

I do not have your email address. If you will email me at brouse"at"gmail.com, I will reply with a DRAFT of my Amel School Book instructions for the washer removal. I believe that you will be able to follow these, but I am missing one photo.

Tom.
If I believed the end cap is warped or the body is warped, I would take it
to FKG and speak to Raul.
He would be able to machine the pieces so they are flat.
I would not go offshore with a known defect.
Imagine the extra "o" ring breaking and spraying salt water all over your
engine room.

Earlier this year I remove the exhaust elbow on my genset to find the elbow
totally carbonized. The manifold also had carbon hard as glass and badly
pitted.
Electec wanted to replace it at about $1000- plus the elbow. I brought It to
Raul and he milled it mirror flat.
They have a great rigging and machine shop there. I would bring the entire
air cooler over to him and have him fix it..
I also have their rigging department inspect my rig every year. Next year
new standing rigging.

If you have a watermaker you might take the 2 heavy hoses with the screwy
fittings over to FKG'S hydraulic shop. They will make you new 5000 psi hoses
with swaged on fittings. I would also check the gas hose behind the stove.
Mine was worn 1/2 way through. Now it is rubber coated steel braided hose.

Hey Tom. That is weird as hell. Never heard that and I thought I had heard
everything once. Eric's email in cc above. Make time to visit with Eric.
Unique to say the least and interesting to be at ease with.

I am busier than I like but otherwise no complaints.

Was the weld on the support cracked?

All The Best, Joel

hey joel- so the helicoil worked perfectly.....so, i bought the correct
o-rings at yanmar here in st marten....put it back together....and front cap
perfect, back cap still gushing. WTF ? i think the back cap must be slightly
bent or misshapen. i put on one correct o-ring and added another skinny
o-ring and the leak stopped......a real mind bender. im going to talk to the
yanmar guy again tomorrow. new air cooler is $1500 so if this is working im
inclined to wait til someone repowers and buy it used.

also- do you have eric from kimberlite's email ?

I bet the weld has a crack. Good time to reweld and have it
electro-polished. Make time to meet Eric if you can. He is an interesting

I can wait until you order a new batch of hats. Or a shirt...yah,

JP,

Yes, I do. 

I have photos and I am about to write instructions for my Amel School book.

I will have it done in a day or so. Is that quick enough?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Burned Out Headsail Furling Motor

I have never been to a yard where they routinely put sailboats into a travellift bow first.  That is done stern first for a lot of reasons, but one of them is that putting the needed slack into backstays is (almost) always much easier than headstays.

I would check with another motor rebuilder—that number seems very high, unless he is changing some gears.

Hi Amels Owners,

 

I have run into a bit of an issue with my headsail furling motor. At my local marina, the headstay needs to come off to accommodate the travel lift. After doing this several times the wiring to the headsail furling motor pushed the wire leads together causing the headsail motor to burn. I have the motor off and the Bosch 0136350008 is no longer available. Pasco wants to charge $1500 to rebuild it, which isn't an option because I would like a spare. 

 

Does anybody know where to buy a new replacement motor that would fit? I have tried calling Bamar dealers and DC motor providers to no avail.

 

Thank you in advance,

Jay Wagamon

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] re: adapter / connection shore power us

eric freedman
 

Gary,

To clarify what Alexandre meant.

Here in the USA many pedestals have 2 30 amp sockets. Each is on a separate circuit.

For example one 30 amp plug might be connected to the black , white and ground, the other might be connected to the red, white and ground. Thus between the 2 you get 220 volts.

If the pedestal is wired with both sockets wired to the same wires you will get 110 volts out of each one and combined you will also get 110 volts when hooked together with a “Y” .

 

I have added a voltmeter, frequency, and amp meter to Kimberlite before the boats Ac panel. I also have a circuit breaker before the main panel. Once in Bermuda, I plugged in and the volt meter was showing 440 volts. Last July due to a defective socket when I returned from a trip my volt meter was reading 110 volts.

 

 

If you want a photo of my setup please send me your email.

Good morning Gary,

Before I went to Tortola, I asked using that specific part to Marinco and was advised not to use this because of the Phase.

If the marina only has 30A 110v connectors you can
combine two of them using a"Y" connector that then
provides 220v.

The marinas I have stayed at that only have 30a at the post
generally can provide these "Y" combiner adapters,
as 220v 50a is a pretty common U.S. need.



Here's one:

Jay,

Good luck with the motor...I am sure that you can get it repaired. Are you sure that it is the motor and not the cable?

Also, with very few exceptions, I believe and I teach that when entering a berth, travel lift area, dock, fuel dock, etc. the safest method is in reverse in a Maramu (with a bow thruster), Satorin, Super Maramu, 54, 55, and 64.

Jay,

 

Sorry, I can’t help on an electric motor source but electric motors can normally be repaired by local companies. We had a main sail furling motor rebuilt by a local Florida repair shop and have it as a spare. Shops are all over the USA.

 

In the future, rather than disconnect the headstay, back into the lift and disconnect the backstays. This is much easier.

 

 

With best regards,

 

Mark
