Re: Prop to Zinc Connection

Beaute Olivier
 

Hello Stephan,

It's nice to hear from you. I remember the handover of your SM in la Rochelle... How many nautical miles since?

The 2 to 50 ohms findings look like a bad contact issue. First check your measurements contacts. Did you check the zincs on the zinc but also on the stainless steel bolt. I once checked a rudder zinc that was held with a stainless steel bolt and...a plastic washer!!
Make sure all places where you connect your meter are very clean.

You should also try to check the resistance between one zinc(and bolt) and the rudder shaft at pintle bearing. If you still have this 2 to 50 ohm measurement, it means that the bolt connection to the rudder inside plates is not good. You should then drill a new hole and tap it to relocate your zinc.
Did you check the connection of the yellow/green cable at top of the rudder shaft, on quadrant?
You should last ly check the resistance between the rudder shaft's top and the engine cradle, as the cable between could be damaged.

Good luck.

Olivier.

Bonjour Olivier,

I carefully cleaned the prop shaft to get good measurements. I read zero Ohms between prop shaft and the prop.

But from prop shaft to zincs on the rudder I got a range of measurements between 2 and 50 Ohms, depending on movement of the propeller. I measured 0.2 Ohms from bonding wire on the C Drive to zincs on the rudder. Any idea why this could occur? Should I do something to correct?

Bill , Might the gasket fit over the threaded opening and rest on top of the reservoir and the cap tighten down on top of it ,I see black marks on the bottom of the cap as though it had been in contact with the rubber gasket. Not the typical gasket/cap contact point , but may be. Does the gasket fit over the threaded part of the reservoir ? The diameter looks about right .

Re: SM holding tank internal details

Mark McGovern
 

Mike,

I have what I would call a "European" spec SM so I don't even have a pumpout riser in my holding tank at all.  I just have a hole in the deck with a plug.  I actually had to make a hose with a pumpout fitting on the end of it in order to pump out the holding tank.  I call it my "poop straw". 

In the photo album link I sent Bill Rouse has a sketch of his holding tank where he shows the inlet to the holding tank being a straight 38mm bronze pipe that is glassed into the holding tank at the bottom of the tank and extends upwards towards the top of the tank:  https://amelyachtowners.groups.io/g/main/photo/84526/12?p=Created,,,20,2,0,0

This is the setup that I seem to have on Cara.  There are also several pictures of completely corroded outlet pipes in the folder.  One could only surmise that the inlet pipes will suffer the same fate and that it is only a matter of time before we all will be replacing these.

Re: SM holding tank internal details

Hi Mark. Thanks. And this is for others who may have a configuration nearer to ours.

 I believe the pumpout riser is probably the same. However In our hull #240, with manual pump, the riser from the toilet enters the bottom of the tank and apparent continues inside the tank to discharge near the top. That is the piece I am trying to get a handle on. Perhaps this riser is external in later models, a hugely better idea.

SM holding tank internal details

Mike Ondra
 

After years of various issues with the metal parts of the holding tank assembly, it seems we are now facing their complete failure. Pumpout now does not remove contents, indicative potentially of a breach in the pumpout riser tube that should be sucking contents from the bottom of the tank. Disconnection of the supply hose from the pump discharges nearly the entire contents of the holding tank into the boat (less than pleasant), perhaps indicative of a breach in the supply riser tube which should be directing the effluent to near the top of the tank. Seems like a double failure at this point.

So, does anyone have drawings, pictures or even knowledge of the 2 risers inside the tank? I have heard them referred to as bronze, but I suspect copper from what I have seen. Has anyone replaced them in their entirety? We have, over the years replaced the tailpieces that connect to their respective hoses with plastic pipe secured to the tank with epoxy (a solution that worked for the corroded/eroded original bronze/copper tailpieces), but have done nothing that reaches inside the tank.

I have not seen any postings on replacement of interior riser tubes, so if anyone has experience/images please reply.

Thanks,

Mike Ondra

Hi Steve,
I'm not aware of a gelcoat color number scheme and after many years of sun you may not get a perfect match even if you had the original factory color.
However you can easily get an excellent match yourself. Here's a link to an excellent DIY site called Boatworks.com. He covers all aspects of repairs, but this link is specifically on how to match colors. https://www.boatworkstoday.com/?s=color+matching
I followed his technique and unless I point the repair out, you really can't see it.  At 6 knots on a dark night it's even better :-)

Sidepower SP 155 TCi needed

Alexander Ramseyer
 

I'm looking for a refurbished SP 155 TCi bow thruster motor.
IMTRA in the U.S. said they only have the new SE170 available.
Does anyone on this forum have experience with the SE 170? Is it a seamless replacement or are there changes to consider?

In any case I would prefer to stick with a refurbished unit of a SP155TCi. If anyone has an idea where I could find that, please let me know (I already asked in Martinique..)

Re: Prop to Zinc Connection

Bonjour Olivier,

I carefully cleaned the prop shaft to get good measurements. I read zero Ohms between prop shaft and the prop.

But from prop shaft to zincs on the rudder I got a range of measurements between 2 and 50 Ohms, depending on movement of the propeller. I measured 0.2 Ohms from bonding wire on the C Drive to zincs on the rudder. Any idea why this could occur? Should I do something to correct?
