The B&G autopilot computer on Harmonie is an AC42N  

It is a bit fussy to interface and other manufacturer's AP computers to the Raymarine autopilot drives, because everybody assumes a 24 volt drive uses a 24 volt clutch.  With is true for every drive on the market EXCEPT Raymarine--which uses a 12 volt clutch for all drives no matter what the drive motor voltage.  A power resistor in the circuit drops the voltage the clutch coil sees to 12V and every body is happy.

Thanks Bill.  I didn't know this halyard was optional.  Would not want to go up 16m mast with single line... Does 40m sound right for length?

Hi Bill,

odd or not it works well. Obviously you have a much longer topping lift than I do. As to lifting the dinghy, the mizzen staysail halyard works well, as I said before being higher up the mast there is the minimum possible sideways push to over come.

My topping would require me to lift the motor about 3 feet to get it over the rail into the aft locker.  I assume you are missing the utility halyard that runs over the block at the spreaders?

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Drew,

I think it is possible that you are referring to an extra halyard that is blocked at the top of the main with both ends running outside the mast.

This was a common addition to many SMs, possibly some were added at Amel, but all that I know of were added after purchase. If this is what you are referring to, I think the answer is that it will vary depending on the original installation. I had one installed when BeBe 387 was 2 years old. I installed 14mm line, which I replaced about 2 years ago with 14mm Dyneema. 

I hope this helps you.

Thanks Bill.  It is not the ballooner halyard.  It too is on the starboard top of the msst, but is separate.  I use the ballooner halyard as the "safety line".  This line could raise either the Genoa or the Main.  It is thicker than the Ballooner Halyard.

Hi Bill,

Obviously the boom is held a level by the topping lift. The motor at full lift is not quite clear of the rail. I just reach over and swing it slightly by lifting at the prop and over it comes.

Am I following you right? Your lifting line does not go up to the spreaders? How do you lift the boom high enough to get the outboard over the rail?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Good Service In Marmaris Turkey

My primary autopilot computer is a B&G autopilot that can be set to automatically optimize VMG when close hauled. 

For five or ten minutes after a tack it tweaks the set AWA angle by a degree at a time, and looks for a change in VMG . Most of the time it works a treat.  I found it a great help to fine tune sail trim.  Trim that optimizes VMG at 37 degrees is only very slightly different than trim that optimizes at 42.  And that is a really big difference in true wind angle and resulting VMG.  It can take a bit of trust, because at the best VMG the boat has a lower STW than you KNOW it can do, but bearing off a few degrees to increase boat speed drops the VMG.

It is not perfect.  It can be fooled by something like quickly changing wind strength.  It also ignores leeway, which can have a big impact.  It's not a panacea, but another useful tool in the box.

I'm happy to hear that, Colin.
I've always contended that it takes a certain kind of person to do passages...maybe a little crazy?  I've always told my girlfriend that if she didn't want to, or couldn't (she has a little problem with mal de mer, too), that I would do the passages and she could fly.  It's a little more of a hassle to find crew (I've done a few 1-2 nighters, but always get crew for the longer ones), but worth having her on board for the rest of it.

Hang in there. I think you'll get this figured out and live your dream.  I certainly hope so.KentSM 243Kristy

I also vouch for scopaline patches, I carry them onboard as a last chance drug if nothing else works. Unfortunately not available in Australia so I get them from the US. The patch works for three days and usually no more than two patches are needed before the body adjusts.

The only thing the FDA says will stop mal de mer is the electronic Relief Band.  It's used for post op nausea, and nausea of pregnancy (hyperemesis gravidarum).  They zap your wrist every second.  Sounds like hocus pocus, but I bought two several years ago for friends and family.  I've put them on 9 people so far. 6 got complete relief almost immediately, one got partial relief, and two got no relief.
I recommend scopolamine, Relief Band, and Meclizine, staying above deck, and staying hydrated.  So far I haven't had anyone on that regimen who stayed sick for days.

"The only thing the FDA says will stop mal de mer is the electronic Relief Band"  
I do not quite know what that means.  A number of products have been FDA approved for safety and effectiveness in treating seasickness. Scopolamine and meclizine are just two of them. 
It is a "little bit true" to say, "the relief band is the only device approved by the FDA to treat seasickness" but the FDA has NOT approved the effectiveness of the Relief Band, just its safety. 
In fact, the FDA hasn't even REALLY approved it for safety by looking at any data.  They cleared it for sale because it was "substantially similar" to a product that was marketed before approval for such devices was required. I know the company's marketing says "FDA Cleared" but that is very careful marketing double-speak.  Note the careful avoidance of the word "Approved."
Of course that does not mean it does not work, just that it has not been really evaluated by the FDA.
I did a lot of research into this partly because I am always interested in products that work "like magic" and partly because I have glaucoma and can not take scopolamine or several of the other antiemetics. Fortunately, I don't often suffer from seasickness myself, but it would be nice to have something on board I could give to anybody and not worry about side effects, or drug interactions.
I was never able to find any data to decide if the Relief Band really worked better than a placebo, or not. They don't reference any published studies of effectiveness, and that always raises a red flag to me. On the other hand a lot of people swear by it.  It is certainly one of those things that "it can't hurt to try, it's only money!" 
Motion sickness is a really, really tough condition to really study.  Nobody has looked harder at it than NASA, and as far as I could find, the technology behind the relief band didn't make their cut, so they never quite convinced me that they should get my money!

We, French people, have this saying that the only cure against mal de mer is to find a meadow where you can lie under an apple tree….! Try it. Otherwise, there is this one week program at the French Navy Hospital in Brest where they nauseate you to near death, and cure you. It is tough and efficient but requires significant motivation on the part of the patient. Pick your choice! All the best, Jean BoucharlatFormerly SM 232 From: amelyachtowners@ yahoogroups.com [mailto:amelya chtowners@yahoogroups.com]

Thanks, Ian.  Is there a special attachment flange just for that purpose?  Any chance you could send a pic?

The Santorin has a shorter halliard running through a block just below the mizzen spreaders. The attachment flange is part of the mizzen mast. I suspect this may have been to raise/support the passarelle, but also to be used with the boom end open blocks for lifting the dingy and engine from the lazarette.
I take a turn of the topping lift round the unused boom end block to shorten the topping lift to give extra clearance when lifting the outboard over the top of the rail. I still have to swing the foot of the outboard up a little to clear the rail, but it works easily.

Hi Kent, there is a t cleat on the mizzen mast at about boom height. we attach a block to that and run the line over that and down to the main sheet winch and is what you call a fair lead I think. Works well and we can swivel the boom easily.

When you say the "spare halyard" are you referring to the ballonner halyard?  If so, that is specified by Amel as 10 mm diameter, 39 m length, polyester double braid.

Hi Kent, 

Yes on my boat (380) there is a block exactly where you say from which I can run the lift out to the cheek block on the mizzen boom.  I just used it this afternoon to swing my Tohatsu off the rail and over to the dock on the port side for servicing. I will take a photo of it in the morning and see if I can clarify the attachment point for you.

All the best,

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Island Pearl II - 2001 - SM2000 #332 For sale

Colin - ex SV Island Pearl
 

Further to my email regarding Island Pearl II being for sale I would like
to thank all those of you who have offered us encouragement and advice on
motion sickness prevention, and also offer a sincere apology to those who
have contacted me directly showing an interest in Island Pearl II.After a
pretty good 5 day passage we arrived in Maumere (Flores Island/ Indonesia)
recently, and on opening our email today were surprised at the level of
interest via our direct email address.Strangely on this most recent 500nm
passage Lauren suffered absolutely no motion sickness at all (of course she
was taking her medication for it as usual though) and after so much
encouragement and similar stories, we have decided to press on on see if
things improve for her over the next month or so before taking any final
decisions to sell.I will respond directly to all those who have shown an
interest directly tomorrow after we catch up on some sleep today, but
wanted to say up front that we will delay our decision to sell for now.
If/when that changes we will be directly in contact with those who showed
an interest first.Colin StreeterSV Island Pearl II, Amel 53 #332Maumere,

The only thing the FDA says will stop mal de mer is the electronic Relief
Band. It's used for post op nausea, and nausea of pregnancy (hyperemesis
gravidarum). They zap your wrist every second. Sounds like hocus pocus,
but I bought two several years ago for friends and family. I've put them
on 9 people so far. 6 got complete relief almost immediately, one got
partial relief, and two got no relief.

I recommend scopolamine, Relief Band, and Meclizine, staying above deck,
and staying hydrated. So far I haven't had anyone on that regimen who
stayed sick for days.

*"The only thing the FDA says will stop mal de mer is the electronic Relief
Band" *

I do not quite know what that means. A number of products have been FDA
approved for safety and effectiveness in treating seasickness. Scopolamine
and meclizine are just two of them.

It is a "little bit true" to say, "the relief band is the only
*device* approved
by the FDA to treat seasickness" but the FDA has NOT approved the
effectiveness of the Relief Band, just its safety.

In fact, the FDA hasn't even REALLY approved it for safety by looking at
any data. They cleared it for sale because it was "substantially similar"
to a product that was marketed before approval for such devices was
required. I know the company's marketing says "FDA Cleared" but that is
very careful marketing double-speak. Note the careful avoidance of the
word "Approved."

Of course that does not mean it does not work, just that it has not been
really evaluated by the FDA.

I did a lot of research into this partly because I am always interested in
products that work "like magic" and partly because I have glaucoma and can
not take scopolamine or several of the other antiemetics. Fortunately, I
don't often suffer from seasickness myself, but it would be nice to have
something on board I could give to anybody and not worry about side
effects, or drug interactions.

I was never able to find any data to decide if the Relief Band really
worked better than a placebo, or not. They don't reference any published
studies of effectiveness, and that always raises a red flag to me. On the
other hand a lot of people swear by it. It is certainly one of those
things that "it can't hurt to try, it's only money!"

Motion sickness is a really, really tough condition to really study.
Nobody has looked harder at it than NASA, and as far as I could find, the
technology behind the relief band didn't make their cut, so they never
quite convinced me that they should get my money!

I also find the ERB highly effective with my crew, but am also a great
believer in the placebo effect.
At the end of the day… who cares how you find success.

We, French people, have this saying that the only cure against mal de mer
is to find a meadow where you can lie under an apple tree….! Try it.



Otherwise, there is this one week program at the French Navy Hospital in
Brest where they nauseate you to near death, and cure you. It is tough and
efficient but requires significant motivation on the part of the patient.



Pick your choice!



All the best,

It is with a heavy heart that I write this. Island Pearl II is a fully
optioned up SM2000 in excellent condition. We are the 2nd owners and she
has been carefully looked after since new, ( since factory delivered by the
previous owners who employed an Amel technician for 10 yrs to care for her
due to their light use), and then by us since late 2011.


Internally looks like she left the factory yesterday, and externally is in
very good for age condition with complete new rigging in 2016. Engine hrs
1900, generator hours 1000hrs as till now, she has never been cruised so
none of the usual wear and tear on any of the numerous pumps, winches,
anchor winch etc etc as in similar aged Amels.


Our intention was to do a circumnavigation, but since departing Brisbane in
May this year, Lauren has battled so much with sea sickness every day for 2
months now that she simply cannot continue cruising for health reasons, and
I do not particularly wish to continue on around the world alone. We are
currently cruising the Spice Islands of Indonesia, all systems (except
minor aircon capacitator issue) on board are running flawlessly, and will
now head for Bali before deciding where to next. To get an idea of the gear
ob board you can see some brief videos of the boat on our trip thus far at
www.svislandpearl.com by scrolling down to the bottom of page 1 and looking
at our FB site posted there.


The boat is UK registered (EU VAT not paid) and has also been imported Into
Australia with duty and GST paid. We are OPEN TO ALL SERIOUS OFFERS so this
could be a huge opportunity for someone here to purchase and have me sail
her with you to your intended home port pretty much anywhere in the world.
I currently have time and love sailing, and the boat is fully ready and
loaded to go anywhere! Our intentions from Bali were to either spend time
up in Thailand, or to directly cross the Indian ocean headed for Cape Town
and the Caribbean.


We depart Banda sailing towards Alor islands & Bali tomorrow so will not
have internet for 3 - 4 days. For any interest email me at
svislandpearl@gmail.com and we will reply with info once we are back in
internet range in a few days.


Regretfully

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Amel sharki

Hajé Weisfelt
 

Dear Owen,

We own Sharki 104 since 2008 and love sailing her (Charmed II). Since we live in Holland sailing on the North Sea, Channel, Brittany coast andere Dutch sweet water lakes. 

We sailed her in Storms and good weather, never failed on us. Since 7 years with kids. Niet in St. Cast heading back to Holland. 

I would buy onze with non furling masts. We sailed one with those and beat her by miles. 

Good Luck, great winds, and loads of fun,

Hajé Weisfelt

Greetings all.
I am very interested in the sharki, witch electric furling ideally. I am trying to research it as I hope to become an owner of one in the next few years. I am currently in Canada. Does anybody have experience with the sharki, and what are your likes and dislikes about it?

Any opinions are welcome.

Many thanks and fair winds,

Owen


Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Modified SM Bow Thruster

From a maintenance point of view the sealed bearings and replacing the gear oil with grease sounds interesting.  Given that both the seals and the more viscous grease will increase the friction I am curious if there is a noticeable drop in RPM during use?   Has anyone measured the amperage increase after making this change?  If significant one might need to reduce slightly the max run time due to heating.

Hello Paul,

you could but as you will be taking the thruster out, why not do the simple job of replacing the bearings with new sealed ones? They are not expensive. All you need is a puller to get them off and a tube to tap them back on if you don't have access to a press. You will find that the thruster will sound smother afterwards. Amel now use sealed bearings or so I have heard.

Regarding the play in your hub, please note that the stainless sleeve does not extend much beyond the lip seal. (See my photo in the photo's section), so the pin does not go through the sleeve. Sounds like you need to replace the hub. They do get sloppy after much use.

Good luck

Ian, very interesting 

Would it be possible and a good idea to use lithium grease even with opened ball bearings?
I changed my bearings last year, but will haul out soon, so to opens the gear boat and put in lithium grease would be a small and quick job

I have some play between the propeller  hub and the shaft so a steel bushing would solve that

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] lifting dinghy

Ian Park
 

The Santorin has a shorter halliard running through a block just below the mizzen spreaders. The attachment flange is part of the mizzen mast. I suspect this may have been to raise/support the passarelle, but also to be used with the boom end open blocks for lifting the dingy and engine from the lazarette.
I take a turn of the topping lift round the unused boom end block to shorten the topping lift to give extra clearance when lifting the outboard over the top of the rail. I still have to swing the foot of the outboard up a little to clear the rail, but it works easily.
