Hi Ulrich,

If you contact Leean Ali at Spurs and give her your information she should be able to tell you the size you will need. Spurs also sells replacement parts and rebuild kits. I believe if you ship them your line cutter they can preform a servicing and rebuild on your line cutter and ship it back to you too.

Re: Cockpit enclosure

Linda Melton <lindajmelton@...>
 

Bernd
Our Santorin already had a Bimini added. The centre strut of the frame is bolted forward of the Genoa sheet winches.
You can only do this on the Santorin because the SM has two winches there.
We have added a front zipped in window sides and a back (all removable). We also have sun shades for the sides and back.
Because they are attached to the Bimini it is free standing and not attached to the mizzen shrouds.
We have kept the original Amel hood for the integrity of the boat, but never use it.
We sail In foul weather inside the enclosure
And have had no issues in winds up to f9.
I think the main issue for the Santorin is that the original headroom of the standard hood is a lot lower than the SM. Raising that to standing headroom would be more difficult. But other SN owners mY chip in with solutions.

Hi Bernd,

I clamped the tube to the mizzen side stay as in Bill Rouses photo but I ran it over the boom rather than under. This has the advantage of much better head room.

Re: Cockpit enclosure

 

There are several ways. The examples below are for a SM. I believe that they will work for a SN Ketch, but not a Sloop.
Look for the eye bolt under where the mizzen boom connects to the mast. Use a piece of PVC through the bolt and stainless steel tubes slide over the PVC.

Clamp the tube to the mizzen shroud this way:

Re: no bilgepump in saloon Am54

Hi Brian & Sue,
I'm interested in both of your modifications. I guess most if us have overfilled our fresh water tank at least once.  At least the bilge gets cleaned ;-)>
The only way I have of pumping water from the saloon or cabins is a sump pump that requires my 24vDC > 119v AC inverter to be functional, or a small 24v DC pump that I have used for water that collected by the forward head when the bow thruster seal failed.
I have just the primary bilge pump and manual Whale pump in the engine room.

I heard a talk by a couple who got knocked down (not Amel) in the Indian Ocean by a rogue wave during an otherwise manageable storm.  They had a boat full of sea water and their cabins were strewn with debris from every locker and drawer in the boat. Paper from their paperback books turned to mush and clogged their bilge pump. They ended up using a bucket. Eventually they called for help and abandoned ship because they had no fresh water, no electricity, no way to heat food, no engine, and no standing rig.

This story prompted me to install the battery box bolts that have never been there since I bought Kristy;  I will install latches on the cabin sole lockers;  I am looking at options for additional pumping capacity.

Do you have pictures of your modifications? I guess there is a fitting through the forward engine room bulkhead? 

How much water will your engine pump? What do you do about debris? I guess the intake in the sump only allows pumping out water that gets into the grey water system. That wouldn't help much if there was water in the cabins or saloon.

Has anyone added an engine-driven pump that would not require an intact electrical system?

Any other thoughts?

Dear Mark
I have this style of alarm and it works well so long as the battery is good and all connections in the battey compartment are also good.
The pump that pumps out the grey water in the engine room could help with the flooding as i too flooded my freshwater, I now sit focused, like when refueling, watching the water fill. What I have done is put a “y”  toilet diversion valve inline. I have the original suction going up through as original but I have fitted some cam lock fittings and about 12 meters of hose so I can now reach most disasters by switching over the “y” valve  and pump out the remote areas.
The other thing I installed was a “t - fitting“, valve and strainer on the main engine raw water cooling line with another pick up into the bilge incase the grey water pump failed or I can use the motor as an emergency pump if needed in an emergency.

i am surprised there is no safety bilgepump for the saloon , forward- and aft section .  only one bilge pump to drain the grey waterhole in the engineroom.

We already experienced a small accident wilst filling the freshwater tank ; the tank overflow comes from the dipstick hole wich results in  200L+ water in your bilgelockers ! 

Now i have installed an emergency 24V pump with 3m hose in the bilgelocker underneath the stairs.

Hi John:
 
Thanks for your work on this.  I will next be aboard on 4 June 2020 and will initiate some photo exchanges with ACMO.  What was involved with, "engineer directed attempts to "clean" the chrome".  Did they specify how quickly you had to return the removed turnbuckles?  Just going on the hard the end of June and not sure I could get the new and swap out things in time.

Again, thanks for the heads up.

Assuming that your Onan is the same that Amel installed and has not been modified, Amel ordered the 12 volt isolated ground version. If your current sensors have 2 wires, that are for the isolated ground version.

Mark,

 

How loud is this alarm?

Will you hear clearly when in any of the forward or aft cabins and or saloon?

 

I have a 3rd party alarm but I can NOT say it is blood curling loud.

It is a shame you have altered the integrity of your vessel by holing the bulkheads. A better approach would have been to install water alarms in the compartments. These are available for about US$12.00

Ref Fidelis Am54 bno.118 .

i am surprised there is no safety bilgepump for the saloon , forward- and aft section .  only one bilge pump to drain the grey waterhole in the engineroom.

We already experienced a small accident wilst filling the freshwater tank ; the tank overflow comes from the dipstick hole wich results in  200L+ water in your bilgelockers ! 

Now i have installed an emergency 24V pump with 3m hose in the bilgelocker underneath the stairs.


comments welcome.
