Re: Rudder Post Bonding

It looks like the rudder is already bonded. However I would check the continuity between the loose wires and the rudder bonding. If there is no continuity, then you will have to trace the wires. Your rudder should look something like this photo.

Hi Adam. It is highly likely they are the bonding wires that should be attached to the rudder post and through that to the zincs on the rudder, thus providing protection.

3. A one time deposit could be a percentage of agreed fixed value, perhaps 2 or 2.5% ,eg. $200,000 boat would amount to a $5000 deposit into the fund

 

4. Coverage would be for total loss , fixed value minus say 10% deductible. Figuring most owners could absorb some loss ,and insurance companies have deductibles as well. Hurricane zones excluded.

 

5. Perhaps lightning strike coverage , perhaps coverage would be ,replace with new equipment ,minus a 30 % deductible.This would probably be the largest source of loss. May have a surcharge or higher deductible for Florida locations.

 

6. All funds would be in an interest bearing account,if you can find anyone paying interest.

 

7. Upon leaving the group , the owner would receive a 50% refund of his deposit assuming they had no claims. 

 

8. Perhaps a .20% of fixed value annual fee to go to cost of administration .eg. $3000,000. boat x.20% = $600. annual fee

 

Assuming 200 owners/members at average boat value of $300,000 x 2.5 % = $7,500 deposit or $1,500,000.00 in funds.

a $300,000. loss of a boat would break down to a loss of $1,350. for each of the 200 members.

 

This could even work on a smaller scale . If ten owners shared responsibility for loss. $300,000 minus deductible of 10% ,would be $ 270,000.000 divided by ten owners or $27,000 per owner. Its all about spreading the risk.

 

I wonder why no group has formed a risk co-op as yet. Maybe because insurance used to be less restrictive and more reasonably priced .

Re: Stern tube hose

Steve Leeds
 

I own a 1985 Sharki and was not sure what size hose I needed for my stuffing box.  It turns out it is apparently the same as a Maramu -- approximately 54mm (actually 54.31mm.  AMEL said they can't help me (they usually can).  One of my clients who owns a Spanish boat was able to order hose from Barcelona Propellers but they have 50mm and 60mm but not 54 or 55mm.  I called the owner of Tides Marine, who is a friend, and asked if he would use his hose with a conventional stuffing box and he said no. 

Has any owner in Europe found a source of metric hose in 54mm?  I am not ready to switch to a "dripless" stuffing box yet as I have seen too many failures with every brand, some very serious,
among my clients. I have had the standard installed conventional stuffing box with the original hose for the whole time I have owned my Sharki.  The boat is 36 years old and I have owned it for almost 31 years.  During that time we have sailed over 45,000 NM on our circumnavigation and previous owners have crossed the Atlantic once and visited the Caribbean several times from New England with no issues.

On a separate topic, we were told by the previous owner that our shaft was 1 3/8" and he was going through cutlass bearings at a rapid rate as did we.  We replaced our shaft in New Zealand with a 1 3/8" shaft and only then learned that our old shaft was 35mm which explained the cutlass bearing failures.  We have replaced very few since then.

I agree.  If you're in mud or sand and in a place where you know the depth is going to be fairly level, you can move a bit faster.  But, in this case you don't an FLS to scare you...  Just look at the depth meter.  I took out my FLS transducer by hitting a log about 5 miles off the coast of Columbia close to Magdalena River.   What a bummer.

But, I love my Echo Pilot, especially I'm in badly charted shallow waters with hard stuff around.
