HI,

If you are considering this boat, why don’t you contact  Olivier to look at the boat?

He does not live too far away.

Perhaps you could introduce yourself - are you shopping for an Amel? What's your name? home port, etc.

There are no bolts on the forward face of the original Santorin mast.

I have visited a 1991 sloop rigged Santorin in La Rochelle couple days ago.

The boat is fine. But i have been very surprised by discovering on the forward face of the mast foot three big stainless steel bolts.

Is it a standard feature?

What is its purpose?

The paint on the mast was tearing around these bolts, is this a sign of ss/aluminium bad neighbourhood?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Battery bank main switch

Craig Briggs
 

Pat,
Getting back to your original question of where to buy a new switch, I just bought a replacement switch. It's a Littelfuse Brand "TR Series Dual Pole 500A Master Disconnect Switch", Part 880175. It's pretty much the same size as the original so mounting took only minor mods. It comes with M12 X 25mm terminals, but M10 is available and may fit your battery cables better. I paid $55US through Waytek who list it as a Cole Hersee 880175. I've seen it elsewhere for about $100.
Cheers, Craig, SN#68 Sangaris

Pat,      That was our view-- until we cleaned the contacts to the starter motor itself. It may well be quite different in your case, but you would lose nothing by cleaning those contacts. Indeed, if doing so made no difference, at least it would give you more confidence in you diagnosis that the switch is the problem.

Ian&Judy, In my case , switching the switch off and on several times , cures the problem and allows enough current to flow to start the engine,albeit until the next time. So it appears the problem resides in the switch.

Pat , We have had the same experience . In our case , nothing to do with the switch and everything to do with corrosion on the connection to the starter motor and adjacent solenoid . I would start there first with some sandpaper . Remember to switch off your batteries at the battery box before you do this .

Sloop rig santorin, Stainless steel bolts on the mast foot?

Re: adapter / connection shore power us

Gary Wells
 

If the marina only has 30A 110v connectors you can combine two of them using a"Y" connector that then provides 220v.
The marinas I have stayed at that only have 30a at the post generally can provide these "Y" combiner adapters, as 220v 50a is a pretty common U.S. need.

Here's one:

I've used my 110-220 inverter on several occasions, don't exceed the 16A and you should be fine.  Does JoEmi have a 220VAC monitor? It's a worthwhile addition.

Good morning Olivier,

If the marina only has 30 Amp 125 Volt shore power AND your vessel is equipped with the Transformer then this might help you.
http://nikimat.com/shore_power_plug_125_volt.html

I have not used mine yet as all the places now are 220 volt…

Remember what Olivier (Beaute) wrote last year: DO NOT EXCEED 16 AMP on the shore power.

Thank you so much.
The marina told me,
that they have also a 30 Amp 125V shore power.On my boat we have the
additional Amel equipment of a 110 V Transformator. I think
that the 30 Amp US plug has only 3 wires. Could it be better
using the 110V Transfo?I'm a little bit
concerned because the marina told me that a former Amel
almost burned because the 110V Transfo on board got to hot.
I couldn't believe it, because I thought that it was
made from Amel for using it in the US.

Thanks John, 
The vessel is in Thailand, it is SM 224 Lena S. 
Seems ok but needs some TLC, we are hauling this morning for the underwater survey. 
Any known information about the vessel shall be greatly appreciated

Bill,

that's why I wrote the second e-mail with the other opportunity of the shore power 110 V and my transformer. In the first e-mail,I was not thinking about using the transformer because I would use the 240 V of the marina.
You are right to mention it, because we have always be very careful with the electricity.

Regards

Oliver

Oliver,

Your original email said nothing of a transformer. How can we know how to answer your questions without​ all of the information?

I strongly suggest that you ask the marina for a certified electrician.

I'm a little bit concerned because the marina told me that a former Amel almost burned because the 110V Transfo on board got to hot. I couldn't believe it, because I thought that it was made from Amel for using it in the US.

You can get the plug at most marine supply shops. It cost about $100USD.

As a ps,

You can also take it over to FKG rigging and they will do the job for you.

How long will you be in St Maarten and where will you be staying?

I will be on island the 22nd.

First, I'd like to thank the 'old salts'.......I've lived on my SM2K (#422) for the past 3 yrs in the Carib nearly full time, and rigging renewal is the only labor I've paid for thanks to your brilliant ideas and experience......and of course documentation. So here's my issue.......notice a puff of smoke through exhaust (more than normal), so change Yanmar raw water impeller in Ile Des Saintes (impeller perfect, of course). Notice a small salt deposit on the bottom of the caps of the high rise turbo after cooler.......(4jh3-hte)......ok, I have spare o-rings and nothing but time, so remove the end caps (really needed to exert force unscrewing them). O-rings both destroyed (thus the slight leak). Of course the tubes are totally clear. So, put on the spare o-rings, scew back the 13mm screws and test. Gushing water from bottom of both caps........try to tighten a bit more and notice that one screw hole in each end of the casting is also stripped........wont hold a screw. I have wrong o-rings, but now a larger problem..........cant screw down cap with 4 screws. So, with no thicker (read correct) o-rings, what to do ? As a half-assed emergency fix I put 2 of my skinny o-rings on each end, used the 3 screws that fit on each cap, and it doesnt leak......yet.




Question- I'm sailing Guadeloupe to St. Marten tomorrow. Do I need a new air cooler box ? Can I just tap a 14 mm hole into the stripped 13 mm hole, get bigger o-rings, and save $1500 ? Thoughts ?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] 4jh3-hte turbo after cooler

Hi,

Get an heli coil kit to replace the broken bolt.

You use a drill and drill out the hole to a larger diameter, use the tap included with the heli coil kit.

You then use the enclosed tool to screw in the heli coil and then use it to break off the piece that is across the far end of the heli coil.

I would install it with red Locktite.

Here is a link to a similar kit to what you need. It is a simple project.

I've used my 110-220 inverter on several occasions, don't exceed the 16A and you should be fine.  Does JoEmi have a 220VAC monitor? It's a worthwhile addition.

Good morning Olivier,

If the marina only has 30 Amp 125 Volt shore power AND your vessel is equipped with the Transformer then this might help you.
http://nikimat.com/shore_power_plug_125_volt.html

I have not used mine yet as all the places now are 220 volt…

Remember what Olivier (Beaute) wrote last year: DO NOT EXCEED 16 AMP on the shore power.

4jh3-hte turbo after cooler

thomas.kleman <no_reply@...>
 

First, I'd like to thank the 'old salts'.......I've lived on my SM2K (#422) for the past 3 yrs in the Carib nearly full time, and rigging renewal is the only labor I've paid for thanks to your brilliant ideas and experience......and of course documentation. So here's my issue.......notice a puff of smoke through exhaust (more than normal), so change Yanmar raw water impeller in Ile Des Saintes (impeller perfect, of course). Notice a small salt deposit on the bottom of the caps of the high rise turbo after cooler.......(4jh3-hte)......ok, I have spare o-rings and nothing but time, so remove the end caps (really needed to exert force unscrewing them). O-rings both destroyed (thus the slight leak). Of course the tubes are totally clear. So, put on the spare o-rings, scew back the 13mm screws and test. Gushing water from bottom of both caps........try to tighten a bit more and notice that one screw hole in each end of the casting is also stripped........wont hold a screw. I have wrong o-rings, but now a larger problem..........cant screw down cap with 4 screws. So, with no thicker (read correct) o-rings, what to do ? As a half-assed emergency fix I put 2 of my skinny o-rings on each end, used the 3 screws that fit on each cap, and it doesnt leak......yet.


Question- I'm sailing Guadeloupe to St. Marten tomorrow. Do I need a new air cooler box ? Can I just tap a 14 mm hole into the stripped 13 mm hole, get bigger o-rings, and save $1500 ? Thoughts ?

It is true that damage to composite structures can generally be repaired.  Composite aircraft for instance can be restored to the original strength after being severely damaged without adding weight but it requires the correct techniques, materials and a high degree of skill.  Hopefully you are aware that the construction of the Amel hull is unique in a number of ways as compared to conventional hulls.  This means that traditional fiberglass repair methods will not yield a structure equal to the original strength, especially without adding considerable weight.  The other challenge I see will be in preventing any loss of hull shape when such a large area of the hull has been cut away as well as creating accurate replacement hull and deck panels that are of the same or better strength as the original hull.  I am curious if you have a general outline of how you plan to proceed with the repairs.

Hello, I purchased Eyes of the World. She will sail again!  I plan on taking this boat around the world.  I have 25 of experience with fiberglass boat repairs and this boat can be restored to strong as original when done right. This is a very extensive repair but I have the experience and skill to do it right. I have restored worse off boats with larger damaged area.   I have a large budget for the repair and it wont be a quick fix or cosmetic repair for sure!  The boat won't be for sale.  The entire repair will be documented start to finish, including all my future travels. Did you name the boat or was it a previous owner? Im a Grateful Dead fan so I couldn't be happier with the name.  



Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Adapter / connection shore power US

Oliver, it is better to use the 230V 50 amp plug. The 110-230V step up transformer is limited in its capabilities and can get rather hot. If you have the electrician at Deltaville follow the instructions you have been given ( Eric is an electrical engineer from MIT as well as a jeweler, a bon vivant and… ) you will be better served by the 230V system

 

The 110V step up transformer is something we developed to ease North Americans into a boat buying decision as these clients are generally uncertain about 230V power. Once they got their boat in la Rochelle and had Olivier Beaute show them that 230V works better for everything, hardly anyone used the 110V step up transformer.

 

Be VERY CAREFUL regarding 60 cycle USA 230V which will destroy things that require 50 cycle European 230V. You can only use the battery chargers, the air conditioning and the hot water heater when plugged into USA 230V 60 cycle shore power. TURN ALL THE OTHER 230V CIRCUIT BREAKERS OFF AT THE MASTER 230V PANEL.

Thank you so much.

 

The marina told me, that they have also a 30 Amp 125V shore power.

On my boat we have the additional Amel equipment of a 110 V Transformator. I think that the 30 Amp US plug has only 3 wires. Could it be better using the 110V Transfo?

I'm a little bit concerned because the marina told me that a former Amel almost burned because the 110V Transfo on board got to hot. I couldn't believe it, because I thought that it was made from Amel for using it in the US.

Oliver,

 

You can get the plug at most marine supply shops. It cost about $100USD.

Hello,

 

we are now in the US  and we need an adaptor to get shore power.

 

We have the 3 prong Euro plug and need an adapter for the 240 V  US shore power.

 

Does anybody knows where I can get it or how I can link the 3 wires from the European plug to the 4 wires of the US shore power?

 

Thank you in advance
