Thanks Olivier!  

So what effect should it have to turn the black one?  It doesn't seem to have any effect at all.

I didn't even notice that the switch in the middle had a fourth label, but sure enough, there it is: "ARRETE."  And sure enough it does cut all 12v power in the boat.  

You're correct, the 6 batteries are wired together in one bank as of now.  I have replaced the batteries but have not yet altered any of the wiring.  So with them wired together, are CHARGE and SECOURS effectively all the same thing?  

On that topic, I'm thinking of keep the 6 together as a larger house bank and adding a new starter battery, for which I'd add a new box in the forward, starboard corner of the engine compartment.  Would you see any issue with that?  

All the best,

Alex,

Smart move. You have done all you can do...now it is time for a Climma Tech.

Good luck, even if the compressor needs replacing, it will be less than $1,000.

Good afternoon Bill,

Coastal Climate Control just told me a replacement unit is $3,455.34 plus the Vega MK3 display. $279.78, plus shipping to me. Then also won’t arrive before september.

I totally agree a smaller unit would be adequate. I ask Coastal Climate Control about these.
But first might go back to Sint Maarten to have a real specialist checking the unit.

Thanks again, sincerely, Alexandre

Alex,
Since that is the aft cabin, you can
probably get by with a smaller Climma Compact unit, maybe as
low as 6,000 BTU.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Aft Cabin Air Conditioning Tripping 220 Volt Panel Fuse & marina

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good afternoon Eric,

I checked the small capacitors as well as the large ones.

I am not sure what means “measure the continuity to the compressor case”.
When I plug the air conditioning: it trips the power.
If I disconnect the wires in the harness going to the compressor, then it doesn’t trip.

So by “having a bad compressor” does it means that I need a new one? Or can it be rebuilt?

According to Climate Control, they are 2 Climma Marine person in Sint Maarten, I will contact them, then likely go back there.

Thanks for the info on the Dometic 10. Will it also power the Calpeda cooling pump? Or does it required modifications…

Sincerely, Alexandre

Alexandre,
I am leaving the first bridge tomorrow.
I would check the 3 small capacitors that run the
fan.
I guess you checked the 2 big ones that work with the
compressor.
 
did you measure the continuity to the compressor case
to the power leads of the compressor?
 
 
I think you have a bad compressor and bad fan
capacitors--remember there is a time delay.
If you bring a AC tech on board I think he will find
the same.  The other very obscure possibility is that the
compressor is out of gas. However that is something that we
can not do. The compressor gas is measured in ounces.
 
Fair Winds,
Eric

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Switches in the walk-through on a Maramu [3 Attachments]

Beaute Olivier
 

Hello Jacob,

originally, the big black switch is the breaker for both negative circuits of the engine starter batteries (2) and the service batteries (4).
On your Maramu, these negative circuits are connected, and can remain like this.

The 4 position switch is:
-UP position is OFF
-NORMAL position is both starter batteries circuit and service batteries circuit are ON (but separate and separately charged by their dedicated alternator when the engine is running)
-SECOURS means both starter batteries and service batteries positive are connected together (for emergency engine start)
-CHARGE means the battery charger is ON (you're connected to shore power and only the service batteries get charged from the battery charger); That's the "harbor" position.

I remember that when checking your Maramu, not all the batteries were there, and the starter batteries and service batteries were only one circuit.
I think that by now you have installed 6 new batteries and split the circuit into two separate (starter battery and service battery) circuits that get a charge from each alternator. 

The big top red handle is probably for the bow-thruster and for the windlass.

I hope someone with a close hull number can give you some more advice.

Have a nice afternoon.

Olivier

Hi all.

We're making slow but steady progress toward launching Lark at the end storm season.  Would anyone be able to shed some light on the function of these switches in the walk-through on this old girl? 

I think the top red one might be for the bow thruster?  The strange thing is that the back side of it has not just 1 red and black wire coming out of it, but 2 each.  Not sure what that's about.

I guess the ROLL-FOC must be the jib furler, and the RADIO must be the old SSB radio-telephone.

What is function of the large switch in the middle (labeled NORMAL, CHARGE, SECOURS)? Does it switch between the house and starter banks?  As in CHARGE would be the starter bank, NORMAL would be the house bank, and SECOURS would be both?  

What about the big black handle?  I have no idea what that's for.

Apologies for the n00b questions, and thanks for any input!

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Water pump for Climma A/C

Stephen Morrison <steve_morrison@...>
 

The capacitor in the Calpeda pump was completely melted. I am grateful that there was not a fire. I have a new March pump arriving Friday.

Thank you all for your assistance. I will attempt to post a photo.

Alex,

Since that is the aft cabin, you can probably get by with a smaller Climma Compact unit, maybe as low as 6,000 BTU.

Write Coastal Climate Control coastalclimatecontrol.com>

Good afternoon Bill,

I forgot to write you that I tried with new capacitors and was the same, it trips the power.

Eric,
I would like to test those
capacitors...I think that they might charge when power goes
to the control unit. Of course his problem could be
anything, but I had his exact problem and changing out the
Compressor RUN Capacitor (40uf) solved the
issue.

Bill,
when the thermostat is in the neutral position there is
no AC going to the unit. Thus a bad capacitor would not make
any difference.

Switches in the walk-through on a Maramu

Jacob Champness
 

Hi all.


We're making slow but steady progress toward launching Lark at the end storm season.  Would anyone be able to shed some light on the function of these switches in the walk-through on this old girl? 


I think the top red one might be for the bow thruster?  The strange thing is that the back side of it has not just 1 red and black wire coming out of it, but 2 each.  Not sure what that's about.


I guess the ROLL-FOC must be the jib furler, and the RADIO must be the old SSB radio-telephone.


What is function of the large switch in the middle (labeled NORMAL, CHARGE, SECOURS)? Does it switch between the house and starter banks?  As in CHARGE would be the starter bank, NORMAL would be the house bank, and SECOURS would be both?  


What about the big black handle?  I have no idea what that's for.


Apologies for the n00b questions, and thanks for any input!

Since you are leaving in a little bit, making it short:
Here is what I did:

I completely removed the unit (I will make an illustration later on of the removal process).

I connected the air conditioning unit in the cockpit to a shore power (this way it won’t trip my boat all the time).
Here is what I find out:

When I connect the harness going to the compressor, the power trips right away.
So I disconnected the harness going to the compressor and it did not trip.
In one of your email, you mention if there is a short in the compressor, then it is dead. Correct? Or is there other test to do?

Also, I did another test (not connecting the compressor harness) but connecting the harness to the fan (and control), the power did not trip, but the fan was not turning (even thought I was measuring electricity at the fan plug).
So looks to me the fan is also dead…

Some pictures of the above tests:

Thanks again, sincerely, Alexandre

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Exhaust Fan for Cabin - Opinions?

James Alton
 

Duane,

   I have often used a box fan dockside for moving a lot of air through a boat.  I normally set the fan at one end of the boat  in the exhaust mode and then open a hatch for inlet air wherever the people are in the boat to bring the coolest air in.  This technique works especially well in the evenings to cool a boat that has been sitting in the sun all day and can make the difference between being miserable all night or having a good nights sleep.  The constant white noise of the fan I find makes sleeping easier with traffic up and down the docks etc.  Also, if you use screens to filter the inlet air, this arrangement seems to help remove the mosquitos or other biting bugs from the boat.  Like yourself, I would like to find a DC version of a box fan so hopefully there will be some additional suggestions.

Best,

James

Alexandre, 


I looked up a 127mm computer fan (a big one???) and it was only 141 cfm, not big enough to make the difference I'm looking for, even in groups of four.  On the plus side, it is very low on amperage draw and quiet.  It would be fine for ventilating your boat to keep some small air movement going.

I'm looking for an alternative to air conditioning, and that would require mass air movement.  There is often a 10 or 15 degree differential between inside the boat and outside the boat in the hot season early in the evening when we turn in.  Bringing the cooler outside air inside in mass quantities is the answer.

Re: Frigoboat Keel Cooler

Terry,

We conducted one of many Terry and Deena Memorial Boat Tours just the other day with someone thinking of buying an Amel.  Without your hospitality in Honolulu--right after a long crossing--we might not have ended up with one of these amazing boats! Karen has become a true Super Maramu evangelist.

The isolated ground system that Amel uses is unusual on a fiberglass boats, but is very common, even necessary, on Aluminum boats. Given that aluminum boats are a lot more common in Europe, I'll bet the Fidgeoboat factory in Italy has a good answer.

Since I didn't install our keel cooler (the previous owner did) I cannot say if there was something special about the installation I can't see.
