James,

I don't know how much detailed familiarity you have with Amels, but we'll be cruising in New England on our SM in the coming weeks if you wanted to see one up close and personal.  

Ours is most emphatically NOT for sale, but we happily do tours :)

Good morning John,

Sorry you have to go through this… especially with a split system…

Good luck!

Thanks Alex,    I'm
replacing the original AC unit in the saloon in a few
weeks.  It is the old split system with the compressor in
the engine room.  
The new complete package
fits in the same space under the bench as the old evaporator
section.   Your pictures and instructions will be a lot of
help with the conversion.

I haven’t decided yet, but I might put for sale Nikimat (Super Maramu 2000) in a year or so.  
Again, not decided because I have lots of spare parts onboard but we can stay in contact.

Hello!  I have discovered this email
group whilst reading through blogs of various owners of
Super Maramus.  This forum seems like a great resource for
networking with Amel owners with lots of experience.   The
Super Maramu seems to be the ideal yacht for our family of
two adults and two girls aged 5 and 9 to embark on a life of
cruising for the next few years.   We are currently based
in Vermont, though are willing to travel to look at yachts
elsewhere.  I would very much appreciate any guidance that
might be given to us as we conduct our search.  Certainly,
if anyone is aware of anyone planning to sell a Super
Maramu, we'd be interested to hear about
it. 
Thank you for your
help!

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Fabric and hardware for curtains?

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Denise,

I do not have any information you asked for except, most fabric patterns are down the roll and the useable width of most fabric is 54". 

And, most importantly, buy the UV Liner from Sailrite as it is better than most. Also their sew-on fuzzy Velcro is good. 

Additionally, you might want to buy twice as much fabric as needed to have it to replace when needed. 

If someone on their Super Maramu could measure the inside track widths for you, possibly you'll find a match at Sailrite.

Original Side Curtain Fasteners

James Alton
 

Hello everyone,


   We are  replacing the side curtain clears on our 1987 Amel Maramu.   As the boat is in Sardinia and we are in Canada, we are trying to find out the correct size eyelets to install into the new side curtains.  We want these to fit the original twist turns that are fastened to the inside of the fibreglass dodger.   It appears that the US version of the eyelets might be too small to fit the original twist turns, but I cannot verify that.  Any help is appreciated.


Best to all Amel owners,


James and Joann Alton

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] SM Antal Jib sheet car parts

 

 

Hi all:

 

One of my Antal jib sheet cars had failure of the plastic runners that line the cars and provide the bearing surface upon which the car slides on the "T"  track.  This left me with metal on metal for that interface and that is untenable.  I emailed Antal and they referred me to euromarinetrading.com  here in the USA.  

 

These folks were very helpful and they supplied me with two sets of Part Number  G30.40A PVC inserts 160 mm long,   for $18.25 per set  plus shipping.  These are the original OEM sliders. 

 

This repair will require removal of the car from the track to install them but I believe the car removal can be accomplished by removing the bolt at the end of the track and also removing the car traveler pulley mechanism at the aft end of the track.  I need to remove this to replace the Amel logo aluminum pulleys at the base of that apparatus anyway.  I think this will provide clearance without having to grind some of the "T" section but that is yet to be determined.

Re: Amel 54 MasterVol alternator regulator upgrade (from Alpha Pro to Alpha Pro 2)

greatketch@...
 

Thomas,

The "W" terminal on those alternators is a direct tap off the stator that gives an unrectified alternating current feed used by the tachometer to figure out how fast the alternator, and hence the engine, is turning.

The alternator regulators I am familiar with do not use this feed to do anything other than generate their own tachometer feed signal, and it can be left connected as it is to avoid more rewiring.  I'll hedge that by saying I am not intimately familiar with the Mastervolt regulators...

Hi all, 

Has anyone gone through the exercise of upgrading the MasterVolt Alpha Pro alternator regulator from the version installed by Amel to the MasterBus compatible version (Alpha Pro 2, aka Alpha Pro MB). 

They are very similar but the newer one, being MasterBus compatible, is easier to monitor and configure.

Amel's wiring on the 54 involves a couple a relays and a mystery box that I believe is a static 12/24v converter and I'd like to gain confidence about the setup before doing the transplant. 


Attached is a badly drawn diagram of what I believe the connections are.

I'm confused about the purple wire connected to the W pole of the alternator, especially because the new version of the regulator has an extra connection point that is meant to be wired directly to that W pole.

Any tips greatly appreciated, as always.

At least some of the polishes have that effect. RainX makes a formulation for plastic that works also.

Don't expect miracles. Even when water beads on the window, there (usually) isn't enough wind to blow it off, not like an auto windscreen at 50 miles an hour! It does help, just not a total fix.

And, don't forget, it will be saltwater on the Plexiglass. If you wipe or squeegee the Plexiglass, you may damage it. Use lots of freshwater before using a squeegee. 

I have not known anyone to remove crazing from Plexiglass. I have always assumed that crazing is deep UD damage and not on the surface. Am I wrong about this?

I can't speak for any other sailmakers but there is no duty on sails that we supply to customers in the EU. 
Our prices include VAT prepaid so there are zero surprises. 

I own Island Planet Sails if you're not familiar.

so do these polishes give any water repellent effect like rain X does on windshields?  If not is there anything people use to keep the Screens cleaner during sailing?
