Re: Cruise and Max RPM #solution

Thomas Peacock
 

This is question without a definitive answer. 
We also have the TMD22. When we bought our boat (about 4 years used), we could get almost 3,000 rpm at max throttle. Our local diesel guy suggested cruising at 80% of max, or 2,400. Our max started to lessen within about a year. 
Ever since then, we have usually not been able to max out at 3,000. Usually max is 2,400 to 2,600, so we cruise at 80% of that.
Issues affecting max cruise rpm include bottom, prop (even one barnacle can make a difference), turbo condition, and countless others. 
I suppose that, just like me, the Volvo has also lost a little mojo as it has aged.

Hello Amelians!  I am in the process of learning my boat.  The engine is a Volvo TMD22, with autoprop h6 propeller.
I found some threads here on the forum related to this topic, but none conclusive about what is the ideal cruise rpm regime, and what is the maximum rpm?  I can't get more than 2100 rpm!
 Any suggestion?

Hello,

Amel put an too big AUTOPROP propeller on SM with TMD22 so the maximum  power was approximately 40 HP .... and the RPM on best sea and boat condition was 2 000 - 2 200 RPM.

To go over put a smaller prop !

Re: running rigging on Sharki

Peter Baumann
 

Hi Mark,
I have basically never sailed on an Amel. It's not immediately obvious where the sheets are running. The previous owner or the boatyard also removed all the blocks. I see a lot of potential attachment points, but don't want to leave it all to trial and error. It's a shame I never saw the boat with sails attached. We did the sea trial under engine before we bought in the fall.  The sails and running rigging had all been taken down and stored. I am now trying to figure out how it all goes together. It's been blowing hard here the last few days, so there was no thinking about putting the sails on the furlers. We expect calm by tomorrow, so I am eager to get them out of the bags.  I wish I could send you some of the wind we are having right now :)
Thanks and all the best,
Pete

Morning Aras,
Electric furlers for Genua and main, manual on the mizzen. I have a box of shackles and blocks and three sail bags left by the previous owner. Any pictures of your setup would be helpful: main and mizzen sheet attachments, path of the genus sheets. Only send if you are on free WiFi. I’ll just try to figure out the puzzle until then. 

Best

Pete

Webasto FCF 9000 in forward cabin - photo please?

Duane Siegfri
 

I'm replacing the forward cabin air conditioner and I'm wondering how well the Webasto FCF 9000 fits.  By the dimensions it seems like it might be difficult to get to the valves for the chain locker and bow thruster compartment.  

Would someone be kind enough to send me a photo or two?

Thanks,

My understanding is there is no difference for the prop if turned by sailing or by current. So if you don't want a turning prop while at anchor shift to reverse or whatever your sticker say.
I do have a Hurth gearbox with the sticker saying NO forward while sailing and engine off.

Woody the simple answer is, Don't do it.

I have just fixed my forward head issue and would recommend all boaters regularly put decalcifiers in the tanks. I have started using Harpic 10, a toilet bowl cleaner with 10% hydrochloric acid. The crustacean build up needs to be dealt with in a preventive way.
