Hey,
The sliding hatch of the companionway of our SM2K is rather difficult to move, does anybody know what to do to make it slide again smoothly?

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

Bob,

I am 6’3” and have a Super Maramu and find the headroom ample throughout the interior of the boat. The pass thru area between the main salon and the aft cabin is a bit more restrictive, but I just duck to pass through. I can stand comfortably in the Aft Cabin, Aft Head, Main Salon, Fore Cabin and Fore Head. The only other area where I have to duck a bit is under the bimini top, although several have raised theirs.

I hope that helps.

Re: Many Yanmar owners can eliminate the fuel filter with the warer sensing wiring.

eric freedman
 

Bill,

That is correct.

If the Oil pressure is low the Oil pressure gauge will indicate low pressure and idiot light will come on.

However the B panel which most Amel’s have does not have an idiot light for water in the fuel filter.

If you look at the wiring diagram you will see that the panel does not show a light for water in the filter.

I just called Mack Boring and also Mastry engines in Fla. They both said the water light is only on the C panel.

I believe that all Yanmars installed in Amels originally had a water sensor in the fuel filter assembly. This sensor does two things. It eventually cuts off the supply of fuel to the injection pump and it lights up the Yanmar Panel Oil Lamp. The wiring to the sensor which is on the bottom nut of the fuel filter has a junction connection that should be unplugged when changing the fuel filter.

Re: Mastervolt Batery Monitor

Hi Bill, Servus Wolfgang,

THX for your quick response. But our´s square housing shaped Xantrex is in the product data sheet only as "Xantrex Akku Monitor" named. No "Link , Link Pro, Link Lite" or so.

I found in the Web the same manual as we have obviously on board, but the listing of values to adjust is little different as Wolfgang mentioned, regarding his LinkLite.
May be I can match these settings over on ours? It´s a Monitor, not a charging management, mhm?

If there is anybody in the Group who’s is familiar with same type of monitor, he is able to sent me the correct adjustments (24V), very much appreciated. 

THX for help.
Best wishes and stay safe.

However, in the operator's manual I find a different listing of the positions as you describe.

Do you perhaps have a newer Xantrex than we do? The manual I have just called up on the net is from Oct 2004. We took over the setting from the previous owner, with classic lead-acid batteries. Surely there are differences? 

Thank you for your much appreciated recommendations.

Eric,

I have never had water in my fuel filter, perhaps as a result of my fuel polishing system, and would like to eliminate the wiring and sensor.  Don't I need a different setup under the filter?  Where would one get that?

you can eliminate the expensive filter, wiring,  and sensor. The only purpose of that sensor is to indicate you have water in the filter. I eliminated that setup from my new engine and added the one shown in the photo. It is so much easier to  change without the wiring.

Re: Many Yanmar owners can eliminate the fuel filter with the warer sensing wiring.

Mark,

You just unplug the sensor and unscrew the filter. Then bring it to a Yanmar dealer and get the filter without the sensor as in my photo.

Where is your boat now?
