Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Anchor Chain grade

Peter Jaeger
 

I think that is not a option, the loss of diameter is partly abot 40%. But I will check the conversations to learn more about that.

Any chance you could
regalvanize it instead of buying new chain?  If it just
looks rusty without loss of diameter, that might save quite
a bit.  There are a couple of threads about this in the
last few years.  Search Conversations for chain
regalvanize.

Bill,

We hope you will join the group in the future, too and give us a of good advice of your treasure trove of experience.

We had the luck to meet you twice, in Fethiye and Lanzarote. And both times you gave us superb support and spend a lot of time while helping us.

Thank you for that !

We wish you and Judy all the best

All,


The best day of our lives was the day that we stepped aboard BeBe. She has been a wonderful home to take us to over 50 countries and sail over 35,000 miles in our journey around the world. We truly believe that we could not have made a better choice and we know that there is no other boat that we would want to sail on this journey.


Part of owning an Amel is being part of what I refer to as a group of likeminded individuals (Cult) that will accept nothing but the best. Many strive to keep their Amels ready for inspection by Captain Amel. I know that we do. The Amel Yacht Owners Group, and especially Olivier and Joel, have been very large contributors to BeBe being ready for the Captain's inspection; and we very much appreciate all of you who have contributed to the group and have helped us.

All great things must some day end and Judy and I believe that leaving BeBe should be done at a high point rather than forced to leave because of illness or the inability to properly maintain our Amel. This year is our 11th year and is certainly a high point after closing our circle around the world.

It is with a huge amount of regret that we have a contract to sell BeBe. However, we know that she is in good hands with her soon to be new owners Dan and Lori Carlson. They are members of the Amel Owners Group and they take the helm in January in the Virgin Islands.

Best,

I especially want to thank Bill and Judy for
helping Lori and I become Amel owners.    We were well on
our way to buying an Amel when much to our surprise and
delight we learned of the opportunity to buy sv BeBe.
 
Lori and I first came
across Bill and Judy's blog several years ago when we
started getting serious about our exit strategy from the
full time workforce and family raising.   Bill and I had a
great conversation about the boats shortly after that and
then about a year ago I joined the Amel owners group to
begin to get a better knowledge of the boats and the
community that owns and cares for them.   And we also spent
a very educational day with Joel Potter this spring (whom we
had also met 20 years ago when we made a first attempt at
cutting the lines).  All that came quickly to a head when
we heard that Bill and Judy were thinking about swallowing
the anchor. 
We had
four intense days aboard BeBe in Trinidad where we agreed on
the purchase and we are looking forward to two weeks of
on-boarding with Bill and Judy when we close on the boat in
January down in the USVI.  We will then be looking forward
to meeting more of you as we are out and about and will
begin to interact more through this forum as we undoubtedly
run into questions.

Re: Dessalator membrane Alternative

jdezulue@...
 

I just changed the two membranes but on top of need to change the o rings, you may need to ask dessalator a spare tube connector ( a little pice of metal with 4 o rings). When I removed the heads, I had one of them damaged ( old white head). Now they provide new black heads. You might want to have a spare head available or remove your heads before you place your order to dessalator.
They shipped me all spare parts the same day.

Bill,


 Really sad to read that you are swallowing your anchor, though we shouldn't be--rather we will remember the great joy that you have had from owning an Amel and the huge debt that the rest of us owe you for your extraordinary knowledge and encouragement to your fellow Amel owners, responding to all enquiries, be they the most technical or those from new owners who are asking the simplest questions which may have been answered several times before.


I am sure that everyone will join us in hoping that you will occasionally find time between grandfathering duties to keep an eye on this forum and chip in with your usual sound suggestions.


 All the best,


Ian and Judy, Pen Azen, SM 302, Greece


 


Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Dessalator membrane Alternative

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

OK, I am fairly sure that your Dessalator 60 liter watermaker requires 2 each of the SW302521. That would be a dimension of 2.5" and 21" long.

Maybe another owner with a 60 liter can verify that number, and could you measure the length of the membrane tube?

Earlier, I think that you said that your product water TDS was 200ppm. Is that correct? If so, you do not need to change the membranes.

Lastly, changing the membranes is difficult the first time you do it and you should have an O ring kit from Dessalator before you do this job. 

You might want to check with Dessalator by phone about the prices of the membrane and O ring kit before you buy them in Australia. I understand that their phone support is very good.

You also might want to check to see if they have a rep in Australia...it will cost more, but may be worth it. Download their list of agents in Australia here: http://www.dessalator.fr/fileadmin/agents/oceanie.pdf

There are two Word Files in the files section that you should download. Go to Files and search on Membrane and you should see these files. Download them:

Barry & Robyn,

 

There is one manufacturer of membranes in the world. It is FilmTec, a DOW company.

 

If you know the size of your membranes, you can buy Filmtec membranes from anyone. But be careful as they have a shelf life of 6-12 months depending on temperature.

 

What water maker do you have? If it is a Dessalator 160 liter it takes 2 membranes. If it is this water maker and has white plastic looking end caps, you will need the membranes, end caps and a O ring kit.

 

Get back to me and I can point you to sources when I know what you have.

Bill you have made an enormous contribution to the owners forum, we all owe you a huge debt of gratitude. Yvonne and I met you in Opua New Zealand when we were looking for a boat. Your enthusiasm for the Amel Super Maramu helped us along the way. Yvonne still remembers the full inventory Judy had for her catering, a place for everything, everything a place.
Your dogged insistence on holding true to the Amel concepts and the Captains vision has served us all well. And your encyclopedic knowledge, we are fortunate to have been associated with you..
Yvonne and I wish you and Judy all the best for the future as you chart a new course.

I noticed that I gave you the wrong number for the 160. It ia SW302540, but you have the 60. I don't know the number for the membranes for the 60.

Barry & Robyn,

 

There is one manufacturer of membranes in the world. It is FilmTec, a DOW company.

 

If you know the size of your membranes, you can buy Filmtec membranes from anyone. But be careful as they have a shelf life of 6-12 months depending on temperature.

 

What water maker do you have? If it is a Dessalator 160 liter it takes 2 membranes. If it is this water maker and has white plastic looking end caps, you will need the membranes, end caps and a O ring kit.

 

Get back to me and I can point you to sources when I know what you have.

Good morning, does anyone know of an alternative membrane that is compatible with the Dessalator watermaker. I am looking for a supplier in Australia.

 

Kind Regards

Bill,

Thank you for all of your contributions to this forum, and to Peg and I in particular.  You will be sorely missed.

I liked your comment about having our boats in condition for inspection!  I'm a perfectionist at heart (but stand ready to accept reality) and it seems like I'm in good company!

Best regards to you and Judy,

Bill,

Many thanks for all your sage advice over the years and know that for both of us it was a highlight and an honor to have had a chance to meet Judy and you in Barcelona last Summer.

Warmest regards,
