All,

I am going to wait a few more days to be able to get some more comments. I have been contacted by one group member who is an experienced ZOOM administrator and has a commercial account with ZOOM. This will benefit all of us.

Those interested please reply to this thread with their suggested topic(s), or any other suggestions. Once I have those suggestions, I will produce a "poll" of suggested date/times and topics.

When the above is completed, I plan to turn it over to the volunteer owner/administrator.

I am looking forward to this.

HI BIll,

Thank you ! I'll be very happy to join if time-difference allows ;-)

Just one word about Zoom, as some stated, they are facing serious privacy concerns.

Another suggestion if you prefer not installing their crappy stuff you can try an open source, very simple system atย https://meet.jit.si/ย . Jitsi Meet is a fully encrypted, 100% open source video conferencing solution that you can use all day, every day, for free โ€” with no account needed. ;-)

Exampleย https://meet.jit.si/AmelYachtOwnersย  ย straight into your browser's window. Nothing else but joining (just look at the bottom for activating camera and sound )

[Note] Feel free to edit the post if it's not interesting or respecting the etiquetteย

That's a great idea Bill. ย And, good timing seeing that just about everyone except for Ultimo is on lock-down! ย 

Just my two cents. ย Limit the two issues to 15 minutes, then after the 30 minutes we could launch into an in-depth conversation for those that wanted to stick around. ย 30 minutes might not be enough time to really get something out of the conversation.

What ever you guys decide is OK by me....

Re: Main Sail - Manual Furling Gear Box

Ken Powers SV Aquarius
 

I just removed cleaned up and changed all the seals on my manual furler, and Tuesday I will release a video about the process. ย Barring a complete disaster or stolen, I can't believe that the manual furler on the mainsail should ever require replacement. ย Filling with grease, yes. ย Maybe changing all the seals, yes. ย But not complete replacement. ย You may have to go to a machine shop to help replace the bearings..... But that's it...

All parts are sold by Maud....

So, If you want watch the video.... ย 4 days till launch!

Shaft and propeller for Sharki - R&D project.

Diego de Miguel (Sailing Living Lab) Amel Sharki
 

Hello colleagues,

I need to khow technical specifications of the shaft and propeller for the Sharki. Could you please help me?

I am going to cooperate into an R&D project with: CSIC andย  ID Naval. They are going to manufacture prototypes (made of Titanium) to be installed and tested into my Sharki.

Thank you very much for your cooperation mates. I promise you that I will share the results.

All the best,

Hi Sue,
Your post did not give your location, but your +61 phone suggest Australia. The reduction gear maker is Bonfiglioli and they have offices in NSW - you can google them.
Good luck with it.

Hi Sue and Craig,
I am sure that some one will correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that the MANUAL gearbox on the main furler is an Amel custom product only available from Maud.
The motorised gearbox on a SM2000 is not Bonfiglioli as on the SN and early SMs, but LEROY SOMER, but this is not what I think Sue is asking about.ย 
Cheers

๏ปฟI would be interested too. I have experience with Zoom as participant and I know that the number of participants is limited. So it could be very useful when Tilo could use his Pro account and host 250 participants.
