Duane,

The following is inside the Yanmar manual on page 43:
(6) Washing the Turbocharger Blower
When engine speed seems sluggish or the exhaust color
poor, the blades of the turbocharger blower may be dirty.
Wash the blower in the following manner.
1. Have ready blower wash (liquid detergent), fresh
water, and a small pitcher.
Blower Wash (4L)
Parts Code:974500-00400
2. Put the clutch in neutral and run the engine at high
speed (2500∼3000rpm).

3. Slowly pour approximately 50cc of blower wash into
the turbocharger air intake over a period of about 10
seconds.
4. After about 3 minutes, pour in approximately 50cc of
fresh water in the same manner over a period of about
10 seconds.
5. After operating the engine for about 10 minutes,
check the boost pressure and power output.
If there is no improvement after washing the blower,
repeat the washing process several times.
If there is still no improvement consult your local Yanmar
dealer.
NOTICE:
Do not pour in a large amount of blower wash at one time (pour it in gradually) as this can
damage the blower blades and get water hammer in the combustion chamber leading to
accidents.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The following was posted some years ago here in the owner's group by a British Owner...I apologize that I did not record his name:

If the engine begins to smoke while underway firstly check the hull and propeller for fouling, the injectors for condition and the turbocharger for damage. If these are all OK, TURBOWASH the turbocharger.
TURBOWASH is a genuine Yanmar part, dont let any ignorant dealer tell you otherwise. The dealer should be repacking the TURBOWASH from the large container and selling it in 250cc / 8oz bottles, not fitting you up with a lifetime supply!

·         Thunder down the harbour with the engine at 75% load and spray up to 25mls of TURBOWASH into the air intake over about 15 seconds.

·         Wait a bit

·         Spray an equivalent amount of clean fresh water into the air intake

·         If it doesnt come clean, try up to 4 times.

In some manuals Yanmar recommend using dishwashing liquid if
TURBOWASH is not available. In my experience it doesn't do the job whereas TURBOWASH cleans right around the bend. I can only recommend the proper product, it really works!

Patrick,


Turbocleaner.com isn't an active web site.

I just spoke to a Yanmar dealer in Florida.  She told me the Yanmar "Blower Wash" was not available, it sounded like the EPA had some objections.

She recommended 4 drops of liquid dish soap in a spray bottle of about 250ml, spray in a fine mist into the turbo with the air filter removed.

Go to the FILES section and find "Running Rigging Measurements Super Maramu French & English.xls," or click on this link for a direct downlaod.


Remember that Amel designed the mainsail and mizzen sail halyards to be less than full length...they are designed to be used with small line attached to lower and raise the main and mizzen.

Ken,

I had no problems with quality and fit from Tri Radial cut Hydranet from QSails. 

If you added the option of a foam luff on the genoa from any sailmaker, the foam luff reduces/eliminates wrinkles when furling.

Hello All,

I was told that he was having a server problem and certainly this is possible, however there also seems to be a delay in response to my more recent emails as well.  I won't speculate on the eventual outcome at this time since I want to give Emrah Oge adequate time to respond but I will provide a future update on this forum.

We used IGo and PredictWind and found it very user friendly and the service from PW is second to none.
The time to download depends on How large area you want and How much info you are asking for. We started to download before breakfast or before a cup of coffe. Usually it toke about 10 minuters. No attachéens if you do it from s computer it enda up " direkt " in you program on your PC or Mac. Come as a mail for tabletts.
200 Word to send as a mail take less  than a minute. However talking gave echoes on our unit, we had the external antenna

Bill,
This is interesting...
You didn't go for the unlimited data plan ? What was your reason ?
I gather you are downloading the email routing files from Predict wind as attachments??
Typically how long does it take to download them ?
Are you getting the Grib files the same way ?.....again how long to download them ?
You update your blog...on the internet or is it an email service?
Typically how long does it take to post say 200 words ?
Do you have an external antenna ?
Sorry for all the questions...
I have been tossing up for a while whether to invest in Iridium Go or not.

Cheers

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] COCO Amel 53 2000 sail sizes

James Alton
 

Ken,

   I can certainly understand the anxiety of getting new sails, it is a big purchase that we have to live with for a long time.  Since my previous post on this subject,  Emrah Oge has contacted me via email and has offered to recut the sail so that it will sheet properly.  He has also offered to cover all of the shipping costs.  I am shortening my time in the Aeloian Islands a bit to return to a port where I can ship the sail but so long as the sail comes back and fits I will be fine with this solution.  I won't be able to test the modified sail until next season so my final update on this subject will need to wait until then.  I look forward to hearing about how you like your sails.  Since they are stock sizes I would think that problems should be less likely.  I have found this forum to be a very valuable source of current information to base decisions on purchases for my Amel and appreciate other Amel owners sharing their experiences with various vendors and sources.

Re: Iridium Go or Iridium 9555 with Red Port Optimiser

Cameron,

We use an Iridium Go that  we got through Predictwind as part of our weather package.  We have been very happy both with PredictWind and the Iridium Go hardware and service. We like the robustness and portability of the Go hardware.

We rarely make satphone voice calls, but when we have had the need, they went through clearly and without a hitch.

While underway, I typically download a full set of gribs each morning, and update our weather routing morning and evening.  I post a blog update most days, and get the occasional email. We have never had any overages charge to our account when using the $94 monthly fee.  I wish I could tell you what that includes for data totals, but I can't find it right away.
