Bill (R) used computer fans!
I bought some, but haven’t had time to do that.

I'm thinking about building an
exhaust fan that would temporarily lay over the outside of
one of the Goit hatches.  It would be for use at anchor (or
at the dock to save on air conditioning) to draw the cool
evening air in and give a nice
breeze.
It's a similar
principle to a "whole house fan" for those
familiar with them.
I found a 16" diameter fan
meant to cool a truck radiator that runs on 24 volts at 6.5
amps for about $180 see - http://www.jegs.com/i/Flex-a-lite/400/39624/10002/-1 
A fan meant to put up with road conditions should be fine
outdoors, especially considering the northern roads get
salted in the wintertime during snowfalls.  It has a
plastic blade and housing.  It says it's quiet, but
that's always a bit of a crap shoot.
This fan pulls almost 2000 cfm (note
Hella Turbo Fans are 200 cfm on high speed).  If you closed
the aft cabin door at night and opened the two small hatches
you might not get the whole 2000 cfm, but even half of that
would give you an air change every minute or two.  Imagine
how much cooler it would be even on a warm night.  If you
have several couples aboard you could put it on the main
cabin hatch and it would pull air from the whole
boat.
You could also use this
in the cockpit to cool off in the evening and keep the bugs
away or in the engine room.
The 12 volt version is only $100 and
pulls a few more CFM, if you want to play with a
converter.
If I go ahead with
this I'll build a box style frame for the fan out of
plastic wood (deck product from Home Depot or similiar) of a
size that would fit against/over the Goit frames on the
outside.  Slap some rubber on the part against the boat to
damp out vibration noise and Bob's your Uncle!   It doesn't come with a
switch, and is meant to directly connect to the
batteries.The fan
is reversible and you could use a "PWM" switch to
modulate the fan speed and direction (I'll have to study
up on PWM switches to be sure this is
workable). 
The worst
job for me will be installing a 24 volt outlet in the fwd
and aft cabins.  The wiring in the aft cabin should be easy
enough, just interrupt the dinghy inflator and put branch
wire one into the aft cabin.
This seems like such an easy thing to do
I'm wondering why you don't see it in the marine
catalogs?
Has anyone else done
this, or have any suggestions?
Thanks,DuaneWanderer,

Exhaust Fan for Cabin - Opinions?

Duane Siegfri
 

I'm thinking about building an exhaust fan that would temporarily lay over the outside of one of the Goit hatches.  It would be for use at anchor (or at the dock to save on air conditioning) to draw the cool evening air in and give a nice breeze.


It's a similar principle to a "whole house fan" for those familiar with them.


I found a 16" diameter fan meant to cool a truck radiator that runs on 24 volts at 6.5 amps for about $180 see - http://www.jegs.com/i/Flex-a-lite/400/39624/10002/-1  A fan meant to put up with road conditions should be fine outdoors, especially considering the northern roads get salted in the wintertime during snowfalls.  It has a plastic blade and housing.  It says it's quiet, but that's always a bit of a crap shoot.


This fan pulls almost 2000 cfm (note Hella Turbo Fans are 200 cfm on high speed).  If you closed the aft cabin door at night and opened the two small hatches you might not get the whole 2000 cfm, but even half of that would give you an air change every minute or two.  Imagine how much cooler it would be even on a warm night.  If you have several couples aboard you could put it on the main cabin hatch and it would pull air from the whole boat.


You could also use this in the cockpit to cool off in the evening and keep the bugs away or in the engine room.


The 12 volt version is only $100 and pulls a few more CFM, if you want to play with a converter.


If I go ahead with this I'll build a box style frame for the fan out of plastic wood (deck product from Home Depot or similiar) of a size that would fit against/over the Goit frames on the outside.  Slap some rubber on the part against the boat to damp out vibration noise and Bob's your Uncle!   It doesn't come with a switch, and is meant to directly connect to the batteries.The fan is reversible and you could use a "PWM" switch to modulate the fan speed and direction (I'll have to study up on PWM switches to be sure this is workable).

This seems like such an easy thing to do I'm wondering why you don't see it in the marine catalogs?


Has anyone else done this, or have any suggestions?

Alexandre,

there is a switch and thermostat by each AC unit. when

the switch is in neutral position does the breaker still

trip? if not does it trip when the switch is in the heat

position?

To discharge the capacitor take a wire with insulated

alligator clips put one clip on the body of the pump or
case

and the other clip to a lug of the capacitor.

Fair winds,

Eric

I can recommend a SUPERB engine guy in Majorca. Also, look at the Perkins offerings 

Send me a personal email if interested in the Majorcan alternative 😄😄

Hi All,


I am sorry to say that we have had a poor experience with TPS, the Volvo agents in Hyeres. Suffice it say that last winter they made a meal out a major service on our 17 year old TMD22P, and 150 hours later we still lack confidence in an engine which didn't miss a beat before they attended to it.

 I am 70  ( Judy remains 21 ) and God willing  can   look forward to another ten years or so of gentle cruising, but I am too busy now to have an unreliable engine.


So, ridiculous expense though it may sound, we are  thinking of swapping our old engine for a new one. Volvo have recommended the D2-75, 75 hp, no electrics beyond the starter motor ( a huge plus in my book )


Its feet and drive connection are said to be a good fit for the old engine.


The alternative would be the D3-110, but we have never been short of power with the TMD22P, which although 78hp is governed down to 60 hp by Amel. Also, I like the extra range that the smaller engine would give.


Has anyone had experience of a D2-75 in an SM ?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Aft Cabin Air Conditioning Tripping 220 Volt Panel Fuse & marina

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

I run the forward air conditioning without problem.

As Eric ask, I switch on the Aft Air Conditioning with the switch in neutral position (neither cold not hot) and right away the Ground Fault Interrupt (GFI) breaker trip (as well as the marina).
What does that tell you?

Alexandre,
there is a switch and thermostat by each AC unit. when
the switch is in neutral position does the breaker still
trip? if not does it trip when the switch is in the heat
position?
To discharge the capacitor take a wire with insulated
alligator clips put one clip on the body of the pump or case
and the other clip to a lug of the capacitor.
Fair winds,
Eric

Volvo D2-75 for a SuperMaramu

ianjenkins1946 <ianjudyjenkins@hotmail.com>
 

Hi All,


I am sorry to say that we have had a poor experience with TPS, the Volvo agents in Hyeres. Suffice it say that last winter they made a meal out a major service on our 17 year old TMD22P, and 150 hours later we still lack confidence in an engine which didn't miss a beat before they attended to it.

 I am 70  ( Judy remains 21 ) and God willing  can   look forward to another ten years or so of gentle cruising, but I am too busy now to have an unreliable engine.


So, ridiculous expense though it may sound, we are  thinking of swapping our old engine for a new one. Volvo have recommended the D2-75, 75 hp, no electrics beyond the starter motor ( a huge plus in my book )


Its feet and drive connection are said to be a good fit for the old engine.


The alternative would be the D3-110, but we have never been short of power with the TMD22P, which although 78hp is governed down to 60 hp by Amel. Also, I like the extra range that the smaller engine would give.


Has anyone had experience of a D2-75 in an SM ?

A.M.F.A. Anchor wash pump

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 


For those of you with a A.M.F.A. Anchor wash pump, you might want to buy this new 12VDC version for parts...as long as your existing 24VDC motor is fine. There are two brand new complete pumps available (including a square D pressure switch). These pumps are no longer available. This is a bargain:


You do not need to worry about the pressure switch because your anchor wash system does not pressurize, unless it has been modified.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Aft Cabin Air Conditioning Tripping 220 Volt Panel Fuse & marina

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

My suggestion is to buy a multi-tester that will check capacitors.

Inside the Climma Compact Control Box are 5 capacitors. Three of these are Fan Speed Capacitors...they are the smallest of the 5 and are normally strapped together. You will see these three first, before digging deeper to find the next two. If it is a capacitor, it is likely the next two.

If you cannot get a tester, replace these two. Here is a previous post from Gary Silver

From Gary Silver #335
Each Climma Air Conditioner of the vintage of my boat (SM Hull # 335) has five capacitors as follows: 
1 each: 40 microFarads 420 volts to 470 volts (Biggest physical size) 
1 each: 10 microFarads 420 volts to 470 volts (Medium size) 
2 each: 2 microFarads 450 volts, 50 Hertz (small size) 
1 each: 3.15 microFarads 450 volt, 50 Hertz (small size) 

The capacitors that failed on my boat (and which I believe are the run capacitors for the compressor motors) were the 10 microFarad capacitors. The original ones were cylindrical and measured 3 inches long by 1 and 3/8 inches in diameter and were in a plastic casing. They had 5/8 inch long spade connectors. The replacement ones I found were ovoid, in a metal casing, were larger physically and rated at 600 volts. None of those have failed but were large enough that they would not fit inside the control box that contained all the other electronic components. I attached them to the outside of the box and insulated the connectors so nobody would take a large shock if they shorted across the terminals. The only capacitors that have failed were the 10 mfd capacitors. I bought spares of each, but have only had to use the 10 microFarad capacitors.

So something in that units is causing the issue (I assume a short, ground fault).

In 30 min, I should be able to test the capacitors, I just don’t know how to “discharge” them… any suggestion?

Alex,
I think I understand that as soon as
you turn on the A/C, the main 30amp Ground Fault Interrupt
(GFI) breaker trips (on the side of the 220V breaker panel).
Your shore power also has a GFI breaker.
If this is true, that particular
symptom probably has nothing to do with the the compressor,
or any part on the Climma Compact 9 unit for the aft
cabin. 
Here is
why: When you turn ON any of
your AC units, the only powered device inside the Compact 9
is the countdown timer. It will be the only thing powered
until the countdown expires which is probably 10-20
seconds.
When you turn ON any of
your AC units the pump relay box and the pump should be
immediately
powered.Therefore:If
the 30 amp Ground Fault Breaker trips during the timer
countdown, your symptom is most likely caused by a ground
fault, and the most likely place for a ground fault is at
the Calpeda BCM20E pump, or less likely the pump relay
box. 
This is
what I would investigate:Is the
mechanical seal leaking and running inside the motor? (most
likely)
Is the capacitor good? If
you don't know replace it.Did the pump motor
get wet?I hope this
helps.

Alexandre.

if the AC switch is off at the thermostat does it still

trip the breaker?

The breaker on the AC panel side is a quick blow

circuit breaker, If there is a short it will

trip before the diruptor. If the AC is on at the

thermostat and the circuit still trips the breaker,

Check the continuity of the compressor to ground. If

there is a short to ground the compressor is dead.

Fair Winds,

Eric

Good morning Bill,

As always thanks for your help.

Haven’t start to look at the air conditioning (finishing work for a client).

I am able to run the salon air conditioning without problem (haven’t tried the forward cabin) so to me, the calpeda pump is fine.
The breaker only trips when I use the aft cabin air conditioning.
So something in that units is causing the issue (I assume a short, ground fault).

In 30 min, I should be able to test the capacitors, I just don’t know how to “discharge” them… any suggestion?

Thanks again, sincerely, Alexandre

Alex,
I think I understand that as soon as
you turn on the A/C, the main 30amp Ground Fault Interrupt
(GFI) breaker trips (on the side of the 220V breaker panel).
Your shore power also has a GFI breaker.
If this is true, that particular
symptom probably has nothing to do with the the compressor,
or any part on the Climma Compact 9 unit for the aft
cabin. 
Here is
why: When you turn ON any of
your AC units, the only powered device inside the Compact 9
is the countdown timer. It will be the only thing powered
until the countdown expires which is probably 10-20
seconds.
When you turn ON any of
your AC units the pump relay box and the pump should be
immediately
powered.Therefore:If
the 30 amp Ground Fault Breaker trips during the timer
countdown, your symptom is most likely caused by a ground
fault, and the most likely place for a ground fault is at
the Calpeda BCM20E pump, or less likely the pump relay
box. 
This is
what I would investigate:Is the
mechanical seal leaking and running inside the motor? (most
likely)
Is the capacitor good? If
you don't know replace it.Did the pump motor
get wet?I hope this
helps.

Alexandre.

trip the breaker?

The breaker on the AC panel side is a quick blow

circuit breaker, If there is a short it will

trip before the diruptor. If the AC is on at the

thermostat and the circuit still trips the breaker,

Check the continuity of the compressor to ground. If

there is a short to ground the compressor is dead.

Fair Winds,

Eric

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Aft Cabin Air Conditioning Tripping 220 Volt Panel Fuse & marina

Alex,

I think I understand that as soon as you turn on the A/C, the main 30amp Ground Fault Interrupt (GFI) breaker trips (on the side of the 220V breaker panel). Your shore power also has a GFI breaker.

If this is true, that particular symptom probably has nothing to do with the the compressor, or any part on the Climma Compact 9 unit for the aft cabin. 

Here is why: 
  • When you turn ON any of your AC units, the only powered device inside the Compact 9 is the countdown timer. It will be the only thing powered until the countdown expires which is probably 10-20 seconds.
  • When you turn ON any of your AC units the pump relay box and the pump should be immediately powered.
Therefore:
If the 30 amp Ground Fault Breaker trips during the timer countdown, your symptom is most likely caused by a ground fault, and the most likely place for a ground fault is at the Calpeda BCM20E pump, or less likely the pump relay box. 

This is what I would investigate:
  1. Is the mechanical seal leaking and running inside the motor? (most likely)
  2. Is the capacitor good? If you don't know replace it.
  3. Did the pump motor get wet?
I hope this helps.

Hi all.  We moved on to SM #380 this
week in Brunswick, GA and have been running the A/C a good
bit very the past two days when I noticed early this morning
that it had shut down. Initially I noticed the breaker
behind the 220 panel had tripped, but after a reset, I
switched on the salon AC and didn't hear the pump kick
in and opened the engine room hatch to see the water Climma
water pump smoking. As I am in the US and fairly stationary
for the next month or so I am considering replacing the pump
with a new unit rather than trying to troubleshoot and
repair what I imagine is original and therefor nearly 15
years old. What are my options for a replacement pump and
what must I consider?  Thank you
all.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] wiring conduits from lazarette to chart table

Sv Garulfo
 

Bill,

Thanks for your input.

Yes, there is a clear path between the battery compartment (the switch part of it) and the hidden part of the bookshelf above the hanging locker. There are actually 2 openings in the bulkhead; at the top and one at the bottom. They exit in stern storage compartment of the companionway, behind a removable panel. The top one is used to run cables to the ceiling of the companionway, through a conduit covered in ceiling-type lining.  The bottom one is used to get to the battery compartment.  
(The big white flexible pipe is for the ventilation of the battery compartment). 


I can also easily get to the chart table cabinets from the bookshelf. I can give you more details. 

But my problem is really about the PVC tubes that connect the lazarette and that bookshelf. I have 2 openings on the bookshelf end, but only one in the lazarrette. The tube that's empty is, sadly, the deadened one. The other one is already pretty busy with all the SSB cables. 

I really believe Amel would have put the empty one for future use but I wonder how it is supposed to be used. Maybe something was missed on our boat ? I'm asking other 54 owners to check their setup, if possible. 

I'm also talking to Amel about it but I was looking for real life input too. 

Thanks 
Thomas

Thomas,

Thanks for your photos!

I have done this job on a Super Maramu, but not on a 54.

Try this and please let me know what yo find:
I think that there is a conduit between what you show in your photo "1.ACCESS+TO+WIRING" and the battery compartment.

Look closely at the inside of the storage cabinet door on the left above the battery bank. I think that the carpet covered panel inside that cabinet on the left side is removable...let me know.

I am certain that there is conduit that can bee seen on this side of the bulkhead that opens on the other side of the bulkhead shown in your photo "1.ACCESS+TO+WIRING."

What I believe you need to do is run the wire from the lazarette conduit shown in your photo "3.Inside+the+Lazarette" to the conduit shown in "1.ACCESS+TO+WIRING", then through another piece of conduit that passes through the bulkhead near the top, down to the battery box.

Again, let me know, I want to document this for all 54 owners.

Hi all

Still working on that solar panels project.

Today was about planning the wiring between the lazarette and somewhere near the battery bank.

On our 54 there is a PVC tube that runs up from the lazarette to the back of a the book shelve located above the hanging cupboard at the chart table. It's used to run the BLU cabling, for instance the antenna coax. I was able to pull a line through it, happy.

Now, next to the chart table end of that tube, I can see another, smaller, empty tube. That looks like an ideal conduit for the cables. Except it does not exit anywhere, and the line puller blocks at what sounds like the bulkhead of the lazarette...

A few pictures to illustrate


Now the question:
Does anyone have a similar set up and know where this tube is supposed to end? 



Thanks
Thomas

I know this is another topic that has
been beaten to death... 
Anyone have a link to
source the updated pump that replaces the original (Hull
#195) water pump? I know I have seen something floating
around. 
Or... Is there a source for
the carbon brushes? 
I have been using a Jabsco
for a few years now and have had no problems but it would be
nice to resort back to original
systems. 
Cheers,
