Thanks to you all,
 
specially for the nose clip idea that I like the most.
 
So I don't need this part for an outboard motor.
When someone is around, I like to give it away.

Hi Stefan;

 

This is used for connecting a water hose to the water intake to flush an outboard engine for the tender.

 

Happy Sailing;

I found also (again) a part like this.
Seems to be for sucking something like Glas, but from both sides.
After 2 years I still do not know what it is for.

Any ideas?

Hi

is it possible to get the rubber scraper (for the companionway) from AMEL or other source?

Martin (B),

How did your linear AP fail at 60,000nm? What specifically failed?

We had an issue where the brushes in the electric motor wore down to almost nothing. We swapped the motors from our rotary drive, which was barely used, to our linear drive and all is good now. Of course now I'm trying to find brushes for it and apparently Raymarine just wants you to buy a brand new linear AP!

Just curious what other failures others have experienced. Sorry for the thread drift.

Hi Stefan,

It’s muff for flushing an outboard engine with fresh water.

It’s for flushing the outboard motor. You connect a garden hose to it and it clamps to the foot of the outboard so you can feed fresh water.

Re: companionway

I use a dry silicone like sailkote or a similar 3m product both on the rubber gasket on the vertical part of the companionway as well as the sliding hatch.

The hatch needs to be sprayed in the tropics twice a year.

It is used mostly for the foil tracks on the sails as it is not a wet lubricant and does not attract dust.

Re: companionway

 

I like 3M Silicone Lubricant - Dry Version. You will find many uses for it. But be sure that the rubber scraper seal at the bottom of the door is not sticking and folding over. If it is, use this same spray to lubricate the face of the door.

Rabbit ears,

You put the across your outboard motor water intake and hook it up to a garden hose. You can then

Run your outboard while attached to the rail. Good way to wash out the salt.

There is also a product called salt away that we use for this. It is also great to spray over the entire boat after a passage and let it sit for a few minutes. It also works great on the salt buildup on rails ,the bow fittings , and the deck

Re: companionway

Bill Kinney
 

Eloi,

I assume you mean the part of the companionway that slides horizontally.  Over time, with many openings and closings, the fiberglass surface wears down, and it touches in places it shouldn't which adds a lot of friction.  If this is the case, you'll need to build up the material a little bit, and make it slipperier. Fortunetly, this is not hard.

You'll need remove the sliding part of the hatch by removing the metal brackets at the front of the track, the entire hatch will then pull out into the cockpit. Add a layer of slippery material to the bottom of the moving part of the hatch where it touches the boat below it.  Use something like this: UNMW PE Slide Tape. I think the 1/2 inch (12.5 mm) width is right, but you'll want to check that. You might have to add two layers of tape if your hatch is especially worn.  If you can find the tape in thicknesses greater than 5 mil that would be even better.

We did this about 4 years ago, and the hatch still moves like it is sliding on ice.

Its for applying water to an outboard motor while it’s out of the water.

Hi Antonio,

Thanks for the feedback.  If you can post a photo of the location of the flux gate that would be appreciated.  Not sure that position is any more central then my current location behind the port salon sofa, but could be a better?

Good idea keeping the 6000 as a spare - I may do the same now that you mention it.  I already have a spare rotary drive motor, so probably good to have a spare back-up system for my circumnavigation.

Greetings Bob,
I am 6’-3” and have no problems getting around the boat. As others have posted, I can stand comfortably in the main cabin. Our dodger/Bimini is a bit low, but I’ve seen on this forum other owners have modified theirs to provide more headroom.

I have posted in the “Yachts for Sale” subgroup. As I understand it, a subscription is required, but is easily obtained by request.

yachtforsale at AmelYachtOwners dot groups dot io.

If you are unable to get there, please contact me directly (out side of the group) and I will get you the information I’ve posted.

Thanks
