Don't feel like you're alone, JP,
I had a crew member cleaning the helm station while I worked on the deck.  She hit the anchor wash switch and didn't recognize it.  I still have a sea water wash, and have put a hose on that pump which is stored in the port locker.  By the time I discovered it, the lockers were filled almost to the top with harbor water.

But then, she was sitting on the water line for a while anyway.

Hello Amel Gang,


Dumb mistake… DUMB!!

We have Xmas decos on our combing to the port side of the gangway including an extension cord for the individual light strings.

One of the other liveaboards wanted to inspect our new electronic installation and I powered all the cockpit electric busses in order to demonstrate.  Guess what? the extension cord activated the anchor wash water pump switch… (we have fresh water anchor wash thus the pump ran constantly until I witnessed the big red light.) 

DOH!

Problem solved. :-)  Thank you Bill… pump type now noted.

JP,

I wish that you had stated which water pump you have and what pressure the system is achieving....you did not, so my answers are in general terms.

The following is the most likely listed first:
  1. The one-way valve on the pump is not sealing
  2. The pressure switch and/or valve is malfunctioning
  3. The impeller is damaged or not keyed to the shaft.
  4. There is an open line or tap somewhere

Hi Stephanie

Here is Riza's contact details below. Suggest you contact him direct for a quote;

We had him make our Davits too and they fitted perfectly and are always admired by all in the marina here in Australia as his team did a beautiful job of them. 

Best of luck with it.

Hello Stephanie,


We have the Solar/Gantry.  Ours has the lateral braces, which I believe are now standard with the package.  If not standard, insure you spec them in the buy.

However, carrying the dinghy in the Emek davits is not a perfect fit and you will need to attach 2 jamb lines (fore and aft of the dinghy) to prevent the dinghy from swaying to and fro and ragging during passage.  We tried a couple of times y in davits but it is not very convenient.  Our annex is an alu AB 9.5 (37Kgs) with a Yamaha 2 stroke 15 HP (also about 37Kgs).  Anything much larger might not fit.

We now haul out the engine into the aft lazarette and carry the dinghy inverted atop of the forward cabin. 

If you choose the EMEK unit, ensure you get triple swivel blocks to haul out the dinghy.  You can also rid the aft deck of the passerelle trapeze and use the dinghy swivel blocks to hoist the passerelle.

Hi All,

                      Thought you might be interested to hear of some quotes that I got from Emek on re rigging. They tell me that they use ACMO, have rerigged 22 Amels to date ( I guess through their subcontractor) and quote 8,000 Euros for the rigging and its  installation.

 Also, to replace the main outhaul gearbox they quote 660 Euros plus 120 Euros labour.

 These seem to me to be reasonably competitive prices.

Yes Riza does sell ACMO rigging. We purchased a complete set from him recently and had it air freighted to Australia along with a set of his davits. Everything arrived perfectly to spec and it has been easy for a local rigger install it for us. With all but the forestay and triac already fitted we have not had any problems replacing the rigging so far at all and absolutely every bit is new. Price was a little higher than the other quotes I've seen on this forum, plus we had to pay airfreight and import duty into Australia unfortunately, however with the Indian, two Atlantic crossings and the Pacific in front of us the investment provided good peace of mind rather than having it made up locally.

Bill,    Thanks. We are looking closely at whether to cruise Turkey next year, though conscious of  an old John Wayne line about why put yourself in a place of danger, so we will see how the refugee and Daesh story unfolds. It does seem that a lot of boats have already pulled out in the last few months, which could make Turkey the bargain of the E Med.
 We are safely tucked up ashore but the Ionian could become a rather crowded sea next year.
 In the meantime, if anyone has a good story about where to re-rig, using ACMO gear, in Turkey or Greece, it would be good to know.

Ian, last time I was at Emek, they had new inventory from ACMO for a Super Maramu.

I do not know the price, or whether they still have it, but it might be worth getting in touch with them...I think that they are a distributor for ACMO. I am fairly sure that EMEK subcontracts rigging work, just as Amel does at both yards. I do not know anyone that has had rigging work done at Emek.

Hi Mark,
Does the €7500 include VAT?  If it is shipped to you in Turkey is their an import duty there as well?

Hi Ian and Judy,

I do not know about the number of liveaboards in Marmaris, but in the Kas Marina where Sabbatical III spends the winter, there are as many as 40-50 % fewer boats on the hardstand than last year at the time that I left on 18 Nov. The weather was great so perhaps some boats deferred their haul-outs.

Hi Ian and Judy,

Emek swages German wire to ACMO connectors and uses ACMO turnbuckles. In contract, if one orders the rigging from ACMO directly, my understanding is that they swage the wires at their factory and then send you the pre-swaged wires and all the other hardware. Still that is a good price from Emek as I was quoted 9000 euros by Emek last April.

Hi All,

Thought you might be interested to hear of some quotes that I got from Emek on rerigging. They tell me that they use ACMO, have rerigged 22 Amels to date ( I guess through their subcontractor) and quote 8,000 Euros for the rigging and its installation.

Also, to replace the main outhaul gearbox they quote 660 Euros plus 120 Euros labour.

These seem to me to be reasonably competitive prices.

Yes Riza does sell ACMO rigging. We purchased a complete set from him recently and had it air freighted to Australia along with a set of his davits. Everything arrived perfectly to spec and it has been easy for a local rigger install it for us. With all but the forestay and triac already fitted we have not had any problems replacing the rigging so far at all and absolutely every bit is new. Price was a little higher than the other quotes I've seen on this forum, plus we had to pay airfreight and import duty into Australia unfortunately, however with the Indian, two Atlantic crossings and the Pacific in front of us the investment provided good peace of mind rather than having it made up locally.

I do not know the price, or whether they still have it, but it might be worth getting in touch with them...I think that they are a distributor for ACMO. I am fairly sure that EMEK subcontracts rigging work, just as Amel does at both yards. I do not know anyone that has had rigging work done at Emek.

JP,

I wish that you had stated which water pump you have and what pressure the system is achieving....you did not, so my answers are in general terms.

The following is the most likely listed first:
  1. The one-way valve on the pump is not sealing
  2. The pressure switch and/or valve is malfunctioning
  3. The impeller is damaged or not keyed to the shaft.
  4. There is an open line or tap somewhere

Which PHRF district? I'm going to be going through the same process this

Relatively few Amels have been rated; I think Detroit rated one of them
in the mid 2000's and Puerto Rico may have rated a Super Maramu more
recently. I think one also got some kind of rating to do a
round-Long-Island race.

The standard PHRF measurement form does include fields to enter mizzen

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Electric Mass -defect

Wolfgang Weber
 

October 2015 : My light goes down to zero after 20 sec. testing with the switch to minus, 30 minutes later light is on again ... measured 0,05 mAmp.
I measured 0,22 Volt between Minus and bonding system.
Then I first started to remove every thing I pluged or connected to the boat in the last weeks.
I normally check the Electric mass defect detector before and after work on electric Equipment , but I could not remember if I did this the last time.
So my new rule : always write down the tests and checks into a logbook !
I once had a connection, when I made a connection via DVI cable from furuno Plotter to HDMI TV.
So I disconnected all the pumps each by another - problem not solved. I had to stop the work, because I had to take my flight home.
What I will do : checking the Bose system - Good idea .
- disconnect the negative group in the engineroom, so with disconnecting groups
may locate in groups and the test each item.

New main out haul car

william_maffei@...
 

Hi everyone -


As many of you know I was having a problem with my out haul and I thought it was the transmission jamming cause the motor was getting plenty of power and working sporadically. Well, I replaced the transmission after a rather long battle with the shaft. That still was not the problem but needed to be done so not a waste of time. The problem ended up being the car jamming on the end-stop. Simple enough and lesson learned, never haul the main in tight against the end-stop. Bad for transmission and car. I am in the process of ordering new end-stops for the track. My original Antal track measures 31mm x 31mm and Antal no longer makes a track with a height of 31mm, only a track that is 31mm x 21mm. 


I found this new car in the process of searching: 


http://www.mauriprosailing.com/us/1-Antal-Main-Cars-Size-110/ANT4110D.html


Looks like a pretty sweet upgrade to the existing car. My question is... Will this new car work on the existing track. The cross sections look identical. The only questions being the existing track height. 


Any thoughts?
