Hi Eric,

I am very satisfied with the Marsh pump. Can send you all the details next Monday when I am back on the boat.

Eric,

 

I changed mine. This is the pump the folks at Costal Climate recommended. You can save yourself about $100 if you buy it on eBay.

It is an easy install and the foot print is similar to the Calpeda pump. March pumps have a great reputation. The thing I like about it on an Amel is the saltwater end is all plastic (nothing metal to bond to the Amel system). On the Calpeda pump, I am not sure it was entirely in tune with the whole Amel bonding/grounding design. I started to poke about on the Calpeda one day with a volt meter and picked up stay current on the pump. Soon after that it crapped out and I decided to add the March pump. It has been running for 2 years with no issues. I also purchased a frontend repair kit (includes seals and a replacement magnetic impeller)

 

Hope this helps.

 

 

With best regards,

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Procedure to unfurl and fuel the mizzen on a SM

I agree, the same applies when furling. Allowing the boom to rise when furling will lead to a jam up.

Another suggestion...


With in mast furlers it is common to have the upper part of the sail fail to unroll if the boom is allowed to rise too high when unfurling.

If you do not have a vang, try keeping just a little bit of tension on mizzen sheet to keep the boom down just a bit.  I'll bet that gets your sail all the way out.

Alex,
It
probably has a TNC connector on the end of the wire. It
might be BNC, but I doubt it. Google TNC and you will see
that the connection can be removed from the wire end. You
may be able to leave the current wire in place and use
either TNC or BNC male-female connections or connect with a
barrel connector.

Good afternoon Bill,



Thanks so much! I know exactly which one it is!!!

Actually mine is on the angled bar that connects the 2
mizzen back stay (also where I have the sat phone antenna).


The wire goes into the lazarette, haven’t look further.


Next I need to see what type of connection it is, if it is a
simple plug or something else.



Thanks again!

Sincerely, Alexandre

Alex,

You do not sound stupid!



The Furuno

GPA017 - GPS antennas look like a mushroom which is
about

10cm round and 6cm high, The normal location is on the
aft

part of the port side rail, near the point that the rail

turns to go across the stern. If your boat has not been

modified, it will look like this one on Ebay, except the

blue paint is faded: http://www.ebay.com/

GP32-WAAS-GPS-Navigator-/ 361434403494?hash=
item54272b52a6:g: WGAAAOSwHQ9WUXDx

If you boat has been modified, it

may be relocated almost anywhere, or it may look like

this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/

item54272b52a6:g: WGAAAOSwHQ9WUXDx

Either of the above work...the first

is the original, the second is a good backup, but some

people use it as primary.

Since I had two Furuno GPSs, I had

two antennas mounted on the aft port rail. But, I also
had

one of the little black cubes (2nd above) fro emergency

backup.

Gary,



The most common problem with Furuno



GPSs is the antenna fails. I went through 3 antennas in

11



years. Always had a spare on board...they are less than



$100USD.



Have you



tried replacing the antenna?



I also had the internal battery fail

in place. I had a Furuno guy replace it.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] GPS signal loss

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good afternoon Bill

I hate to sound stupid, but where is located the antenna?
I also lost boat data on the radar display (no longer indicate speed, etc.) I thought it was a loose connection, but may be it is the antenna…

Thanks in advance, sincerely, Alexandre

Gary,
The most common problem with Furuno
GPSs is the antenna fails. I went through 3 antennas in 11
years. Always had a spare on board...they are less than
$100USD.
Have you
tried replacing the antenna?
I also had the internal battery fail
in one of the two Furuno GPSs we had on #387. It is soldered
in place. I had a Furuno guy replace it.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Pump out of black water Tank meeter?

Mark Erdos
 

Paul,

 

The Amel has a tank meter for the holding tanks.

 

You can tell when the tank is full because you will see pee running down the deck when you flush the head as it spurts out the vent hole in the cap.

 

 

With best regards,

 

Mark

Have anyone instslled the Gobius tank meeter? One attache the sensors outside the tank. To me it looks as the tank is "enkapsulated" so im not sure ut eill work.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Procedure to unfurl and fuel the mizzen on a SM

Mark Erdos
 

Willem,

 

The furling does take a little bit of getting use to it. If you are trying to pull out the sail and it gets stuck at the top while coming out of the mast, the trick is to turn the furling winch the other way (furling it back into the mast) while keeping the outhaul tight. Work the furling back and forth a little bit and it will come loose. This is true with both the main and the mizzen mast. On the main sail, do not over strain the motors. Keep the outhaul snug and slowly furl in and out. It will come loose. Sometimes it will come out a little bit at a time but keep going back and forth and it will all come out.

 

When furling the sail, it is important to keep the outhaul in pace with the furling. On the mizzen, tail the furling line and keep it a little snug. On the main, watch that the outhaul does not outpace the furling. If you have to stop the outhaul and let the furling catch up keeping the main snug while furling.

 

Hope this helps.

 

 

With best regards,

 

Mark

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Procedure to unfurl and fuel the mizzen on a SM

 

 

Just arrived in the Netherlands from Denmark. We had a nice sail, but a problem occured with the mizzen. I could not unfurl the whole sail. It seems to be jammed in the upper part of the mizzen mast. First question: how to get it out? Second question: What is the right procedure to fuel and unfurl the mizzen? I noticed that on the winches you can't see the the furling inside the mast profile.
Please advise me.

Re: Procedure to unfurl and fuel the mizzen on a SM

Paul Osterberg
 

It is important  to pull out the sail not #furl out# the sail. If it get jamed, try to furl it tight then pull out a little bit, as soon its jam again, furl tight again, then pull out a little bit again etc it usually unfurl after a few repetitions.
If that does not help try to unfurl without pulling, but just a rew or two then furl tight again, try that a few times and then pull out repet as nessesary. After a while it will unfurl totaly.
We have battens in our sail now since a year ago and it have never jamed

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Quiz: Mystery boat lines

Beaute Olivier
 

Hello Liz and Steve,

these lines were supposed to be rigged at the end of the first spreaders on main mast. They were supporting a pulley that drives and supports the poles topping lifts.
Next question is : How can you rigg the topping lift now?
If you have replaced your standing rigging with an ACMO one, you probably got top shrouds or intermediate shrouds with a small swaged part that is supposed to support the pulleys that bear the topping lifts.

The big loop was set around the shroud and above the spreader, the small loop was carrying the pulley's shackle.
A lot of SM still have their pole's topping lifts supported this way.

Look up and tell me what you see.
Too bad for the beer, I will be soon in Martinique but will not go further to Aruba.

Olivier.

Hints:

1) They're each approx 5 feet long.
2) The loop on one end is larger than the loop on the other end.
3) The larger of the two loops on each line is stained slightly brick-ish or orange-pink.
4) They're from our 1992-vintage SM.

Winner gets appreciation, satisfaction in the knowledge that they did a good deed, and a cold beer next time they're anchored near Aloha.

Willem,

Is it possible that your sails have vertical battens? Some SM owners added vertical battens.

If you do not have vertical battens, I suggest that 1 crew member goes aloft to the point of the jam and observe while another crew member operates the furler and outhaul in and out. Your sail is probably "backlashed" and folded over itself. This was probably caused by NOT tailing the outhaul while furling the furler.

Of course, you can hire a sailmaker or rigger to help you.

If you do have vertical battens, I suggest that you hire a sailmaker to help you.

Best,

Just arrived in the Netherlands from Denmark. We had a nice sail, but a problem occured with the mizzen. I could not unfurl the whole sail. It seems to be jammed in the upper part of the mizzen mast. First question: how to get it out? Second question: What is the right procedure to fuel and unfurl the mizzen? I noticed that on the winches you can't see the the furling inside the mast profile.
Please advise me.

Quiz: Mystery boat lines

Stephen Davis
 

Does anyone know what these two identical lines in the photo linked below are used for?

https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/amelyachtowners/photos/albums/78227788

Hints:

1) They're each approx 5 feet long.
2) The loop on one end is larger than the loop on the other end.
3) The larger of the two loops on each line is stained slightly brick-ish or orange-pink.
4) They're from our 1992-vintage SM.

Winner gets appreciation, satisfaction in the knowledge that they did a good deed, and a cold beer next time they're anchored near Aloha.
