And if you add a sock to your mizzen staysail, it is so much easier to manage.

The foc d'artimon/mizzen staysail/mizzen ballooner....

Tack is on the u bolt in front of the dodger.
The peak on the halyard from the front of the mizzen mast
put a block on the eye bolt on the aft gunwale on the side you want the sheet 
run the sheet outside the rail to the block and then  back to a winch
Haul it up the mizzen mast et voila

Trinquette/staysail...depends on what configuration you have
Inner forestays were not standard on Amel boats
We have a furler with a staysail on it but not tracks for the sheet blocks, we use snatch blocks
Some have tracks on the deck along side the cabin top
maybe you have a stay you can attach and a hank on staysail ??

Thank you Bill and Alexandre
Next time I will check if the cones are greased.
when I looked at it it was greased and oiled. But I will do like you said. Maybe I was lucky with my windlass even I did not made a full maintenance every year.
Thanks again for your wise input.

Hanspeter, 

I did read the manual, and that is why I know that you should grease the cone. The following is a copy of the manual in English. Like I said previously, I have had discussion with people who are not aware of this.

Below are indicated the operations and the period we consider essential to get the best efficiency and performance of your anchor windlass.
1. Clean all the outer surfaces and the hidden points with fresh water and remove the salt layer.
2. Grease the outer rotation parts . Particularly the main shaft thread and the clutch cones. Check for evidences of corrosion and stress.
3. Check the terminals of the electric motor and the Control Box. Test the drop of tension at the terminals.
4. Check the rotation and the speed of the electric motor. If it runs slowly check the electric motor brushes and clean with abrasive paper. Replace when necessary.
5. Replace of the all outer seals. The geabox is proper filled with SAE 90 long life oil.
6. Remove the windlass from the deck to clean the salt under the basement.

If you do not have a copy of the Lofrans manual, you can download a copy here: 

Best,

Bill

When I looked at your photo documentary, I saw nothing out of line. I downloaded it.

I have had several discussions with people that don't believe that the cone should be greased because that will cause it to slip. I always say, exactly, it is supposed to slip under heavy loads.

Since I purchase my vessel (end of 2012) I had never

because I don’t use it much and gave priority to other
systems that i use all the time.

Consequently some parts were very difficult to extract.



Now that I am familiar with it, I will definitely service it
on a regular basis (starting every 3 months).

I believe this will be much easier and quicker.



This also helped me to understand better how my windlass

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] illustration of the Basic Maintenance of the Lofrans Tigres Windlass

James Alton
 

Alexandre,

I have been servicing various windlasses for 40 years and have used grease on the cones and shafts of all of them lest they tend to seize up rather quickly. Regular maintenance is important as the grease gets squeezed out and washed off so a hydrophobic grease seems to work the best. I have normally used the white lithiums only because they tend to stain the deck and sails less. The best white lithium that I have come across for this application (and winches/turnbuckles as well) is the Vari-prop grease. I think that you have been getting some excellent advice already, so just adding my own 2 cents.

Good afternoon Hanspeter,

I put grease on the main shaft, and even on the gipsy parts.
Since I am a fairly new owner, this is why I ask other owner to comment:

My owner manual (which is the 2nd to last link) called called: Lofrans Tigres (and other) installation, operation & maintenance program (.pdf 1.0 mb)
says on page 4:
2. Grease the outer rotation parts . Particularly the main shaft thread and the clutch cones.
You can see the complete maintenance schedule Lofrans recommend on this link.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] illustration of the Basic Maintenance of the Lofrans Tigres Windlass

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Alex,

Lofrans designs the cone to slip inside the gypsy so that internal damage does not occur on the windlass. I have helped several Amel owners who unfortunately did not know to grease this. The key on the shaft warps, bends and cuts into the key groove on the windlass cone which is inside the gypsy, and/or the windlass will get pulled out of the deck when excessive force is applied through the anchor chain.

Always use a snubber...mine is a 1 1/2" multiplait nylon line that is 7 meters long. I attach it to the large bow cleat and a pelican hook on the chain. I never anchor without it.

Maybe SM "RASCAL" will post some photos, and/or comment.

Best,

Bill

Glad all looks ok Bill,

I “guess” if the windlass manufacturers did not want the possibility of the cone to slip, they would have bold them together…
Mine definitely did not slip before…

It was interesting as i put my new Rocna anchor on, then pull the chain up, as it was slipping, so I just tight the wing nut, this is also how I realize the emergency handle is a perfect fit to tight the wing nut as well 1) giving leverage 2) keeping hands at a safe distance.

When I looked at your photo
documentary, I saw nothing out of line. I downloaded
it.
I have had several
discussions with people that don't believe that the cone
should be greased because that will cause it to slip. I
always say, exactly, it is supposed to slip under heavy
loads.

don't hesitate to correct me, this will help others
too!!!

For the new owners like myself who are intimidated by

maintenance task they have never done performed, I

illustrated the “Basic maintenance” of the Lofrans

Tigres Windlass.







I really would like the more experience owners to look
at

the document and make sure I did not make any mistake
(too

much grease, etc.) and correct me.







Since I purchase my vessel (end of 2012) I had never

serviced the windlass… Why?



because I don’t use it much and gave priority to other

systems that i use all the time.



Consequently some parts were very difficult to extract.








Now that I am familiar with it, I will definitely service
it

on a regular basis (starting every 3 months).



I believe this will be much easier and quicker.







This also helped me to understand better how my windlass

works.







Here is the link:



http://nikimat.com/lofrans_tigres_windlass.html







For low bandwidth user, the document is split in 5
sections.









If bandwidth is not an issue, there is also the full
version

(58 pictures).

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] illustration of the Basic Maintenance of the Lofrans Tigres Windlass

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good afternoon Hanspeter,

I put grease on the main shaft, and even on the gipsy parts.
Since I am a fairly new owner, this is why I ask other owner to comment:

My owner manual (which is the 2nd to last link) called called: Lofrans Tigres (and other) installation, operation & maintenance program (.pdf 1.0 mb)
says on page 4:
2. Grease the outer rotation parts . Particularly the main shaft thread and the clutch cones.
You can see the complete maintenance schedule Lofrans recommend on this link.


Sincerely, Alexandre

don't hesitate to correct me, this will help others
too!!!

For the new owners like myself who are intimidated by

maintenance task they have never done performed, I

illustrated the “Basic maintenance” of the Lofrans

Tigres Windlass.







I really would like the more experience owners to look
at

the document and make sure I did not make any mistake
(too

much grease, etc.) and correct me.







Since I purchase my vessel (end of 2012) I had never

serviced the windlass… Why?



because I don’t use it much and gave priority to other

systems that i use all the time.



Consequently some parts were very difficult to extract.








Now that I am familiar with it, I will definitely service
it

on a regular basis (starting every 3 months).



I believe this will be much easier and quicker.







This also helped me to understand better how my windlass

works.







Here is the link:



http://nikimat.com/lofrans_tigres_windlass.html







For low bandwidth user, the document is split in 5
sections.









If bandwidth is not an issue, there is also the full
version

(58 pictures).

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] illustration of the Basic Maintenance of the Lofrans Tigres Windlass

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Hanspeter, 

I did read the manual, and that is why I know that you should grease the cone. The following is a copy of the manual in English. Like I said previously, I have had discussion with people who are not aware of this.

Below are indicated the operations and the period we consider essential to get the best efficiency and performance of your anchor windlass.
1. Clean all the outer surfaces and the hidden points with fresh water and remove the salt layer.
2. Grease the outer rotation parts . Particularly the main shaft thread and the clutch cones. Check for evidences of corrosion and stress.
3. Check the terminals of the electric motor and the Control Box. Test the drop of tension at the terminals.
4. Check the rotation and the speed of the electric motor. If it runs slowly check the electric motor brushes and clean with abrasive paper. Replace when necessary.
5. Replace of the all outer seals. The geabox is proper filled with SAE 90 long life oil.
6. Remove the windlass from the deck to clean the salt under the basement.

If you do not have a copy of the Lofrans manual, you can download a copy here: 

Best,

Bill

When I looked at your photo documentary, I saw nothing out of line. I downloaded it.

I have had several discussions with people that don't believe that the cone should be greased because that will cause it to slip. I always say, exactly, it is supposed to slip under heavy loads.

Hello Bill,

If I made mistakes, not enough grease, too much, etc. please don't hesitate to correct me, this will help others too!!!

For the new owners like myself who are intimidated by
maintenance task they have never done performed, I
illustrated the “Basic maintenance” of the Lofrans
Tigres Windlass.



I really would like the more experience owners to look at
the document and make sure I did not make any mistake (too
much grease, etc.) and correct me.



Since I purchase my vessel (end of 2012) I had never
serviced the windlass… Why?

because I don’t use it much and gave priority to other
systems that i use all the time.

Consequently some parts were very difficult to extract.



Now that I am familiar with it, I will definitely service it
on a regular basis (starting every 3 months).

I believe this will be much easier and quicker.



This also helped me to understand better how my windlass
works.



Here is the link:

http://nikimat.com/lofrans_tigres_windlass.html



For low bandwidth user, the document is split in 5 sections.




If bandwidth is not an issue, there is also the full version
(58 pictures).

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] illustration of the Basic Maintenance of the Lofrans Tigres Windlass

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Glad all looks ok Bill,

I “guess” if the windlass manufacturers did not want the possibility of the cone to slip, they would have bold them together…
Mine definitely did not slip before…

It was interesting as i put my new Rocna anchor on, then pull the chain up, as it was slipping, so I just tight the wing nut, this is also how I realize the emergency handle is a perfect fit to tight the wing nut as well 1) giving leverage 2) keeping hands at a safe distance.

Sincerely, Alexandre

When I looked at your photo
documentary, I saw nothing out of line. I downloaded
it.
I have had several
discussions with people that don't believe that the cone
should be greased because that will cause it to slip. I
always say, exactly, it is supposed to slip under heavy
loads.

don't hesitate to correct me, this will help others
too!!!

For the new owners like myself who are intimidated by

maintenance task they have never done performed, I

illustrated the “Basic maintenance” of the Lofrans

Tigres Windlass.







I really would like the more experience owners to look
at

the document and make sure I did not make any mistake
(too

much grease, etc.) and correct me.







Since I purchase my vessel (end of 2012) I had never

serviced the windlass… Why?



because I don’t use it much and gave priority to other

systems that i use all the time.



Consequently some parts were very difficult to extract.








Now that I am familiar with it, I will definitely service
it

on a regular basis (starting every 3 months).



I believe this will be much easier and quicker.







This also helped me to understand better how my windlass

works.







Here is the link:



http://nikimat.com/lofrans_tigres_windlass.html







For low bandwidth user, the document is split in 5
sections.









If bandwidth is not an issue, there is also the full
version

(58 pictures).

When I looked at your photo documentary, I saw nothing out of line. I downloaded it.

I have had several discussions with people that don't believe that the cone should be greased because that will cause it to slip. I always say, exactly, it is supposed to slip under heavy loads.

Re: Flying the foc d'artimon and trinquette on Maramu 46

Alan Leslie
 

The foc d'artimon/mizzen staysail/mizzen ballooner....
Tack is on the u bolt in front of the dodger.
The peak on the halyard from the front of the mizzen mast
put a block on the eye bolt on the aft gunwale on the side you want the sheet 
run the sheet outside the rail to the block and then  back to a winch
Haul it up the mizzen mast et voila

Trinquette/staysail...depends on what configuration you have
Inner forestays were not standard on Amel boats
We have a furler with a staysail on it but not tracks for the sheet blocks, we use snatch blocks
Some have tracks on the deck along side the cabin top
maybe you have a stay you can attach and a hank on staysail ??

My Windlass is 25 Years old and i maintain it every 5 years ( cabels  new oil not grease! )
I use my windlass every time often wirh 70 m of 10mm chain, so far never had a problem. It's a very good product and save

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Super Maramu FRIENDSHIP II Hull #415 From San Francisco

Mark Pitt
 

I know that boat.  It was launched about the same time as my Super Maramu "Sabbatical III" and the owner, Bob Stewart from San Francisco, was finishing the one week orientation with Olivier Beaute at about the time that my wife and I started it (October 2003).  He was also in the ARC 2003 with me and the last that I saw of him and the boat was in the Caribbean in early 2004.  The only other biographical fact that I can remember is that he was in "real estate."  I hope that he is OK.

I saw a terrible sight today! Located at Coral Cove Marina, Trinidad in the secured hard storage area is FRIENDSHIP II, Super Maramu Red Line Hull #415 with a homeport of San Francisco. It has been on the hard since 2008 and is rotting and molding in place. There is even mold on the spreaders. What once was an all-boat cover is in shreds. According to locals nobody has visited this boat since it was placed on the hard in 2008. I was also told that someone is paying for storage.

Does anyone know anything about this boat. I have photos for the owner or an interested party.

When I looked at your photo documentary, I saw nothing out of line. I downloaded it.

I have had several discussions with people that don't believe that the cone should be greased because that will cause it to slip. I always say, exactly, it is supposed to slip under heavy loads.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Super Maramu FRIENDSHIP II Hull #415 From San Francisco

James Alton
 

Agreed.

There were 3 people by that name that died in the US in and around 2008-9 according to the list that I found, but none of them lived in CA as their last address.  This still is a plausible explanation, and perhaps some of the family members are keeping the storage up.  Hopefully you can find her a new owner.

Best,
James

I have no first hand knowledge, but a bit of googling and a search of the USCG Vessel Documentation database indicates that “Friendship II” is (was?) owned by someone named Robert M. Stewart, and the USCG documentation hasn’t been renewed since 2008. With no current document, I couldn’t find an address.   Looks like he might be from in or around San Jose, CA.

For the new owners like myself who are intimidated by maintenance task they have never done performed, I illustrated the “Basic maintenance” of the Lofrans Tigres Windlass.

I really would like the more experience owners to look at the document and make sure I did not make any mistake (too much grease, etc.) and correct me.

Since I purchase my vessel (end of 2012) I had never serviced the windlass… Why?
because I don’t use it much and gave priority to other systems that i use all the time.
Consequently some parts were very difficult to extract.

Now that I am familiar with it, I will definitely service it on a regular basis (starting every 3 months).
I believe this will be much easier and quicker.

This also helped me to understand better how my windlass works.

Here is the link:

For low bandwidth user, the document is split in 5 sections.

If bandwidth is not an issue, there is also the full version (58 pictures).

Re: Head-Holding tank ball valve replacement

Craig Briggs
 

Hi Duane,
Actually, to replace you'll have to remove and then reinstall the fiberglass structure that is around the valve base and deal with the through hull assembly.  If you can simply unscrew the to part you'll have a much easier project - the insides can be replaces with new, if that seems appropriate after you take it apart.  You may have to cut back a bit of fiberglass to take it apart, but it is still much easier.
Good luck with it.
