Re: Groups.io has increased the price we pay for Webhosting, Operation, and Support for our Amel Yacht Owners Group site

 

We have collected enough donations to give the Amel Yacht Owners Group 3 years' worth of fees to our host Groups.io. I will see if I can transfer all of the funds to Groups.io to prepay their fees for the next 3 years.

Thanks to everyone. 

Bill

All,

 

Groups.io has increased the price we pay for Webhosting, Operation, and Support for our Amel Yacht Owners Group site from $110 per year to $220 per year. We have the Premium Plan, which you can see here: https://groups.io/static/pricing  

 

To review, in February 2019 when we moved from Yahoo toGroups.io, I guaranteed the annual payment of Group.io fees for the first five years and I stand by that even though I not aware that the price would increase. Several months after we moved from Yahoo, we were able to sell advertising to QSails on our Wiki page. We believed that this would offset the Group.io costs.

 

I will continue to guarantee the Group.io costs, but I will also look for other ways to offset them.

Yes, it was received. Stripe, a division of Wells Fargo is the "middleman" in this transaction. It is safe, or as safe as a bank would be.

All,

 

Groups.io has increased the price we pay for Webhosting, Operation, and Support for our Amel Yacht Owners Group site from $110 per year to $220 per year. We have the Premium Plan, which you can see here: https://groups.io/static/pricing  

 

To review, in February 2019 when we moved from Yahoo to Groups.io, I guaranteed the annual payment of Group.io fees for the first five years and I stand by that even though I not aware that the price would increase. Several months after we moved from Yahoo, we were able to sell advertising to QSails on our Wiki page. We believed that this would offset the Group.io costs.

 

I will continue to guarantee the Group.io costs, but I will also look for other ways to offset them.

Agree,

 

I blew at least 3 or 4 when my unit acted up in VANUATU before I was able to Barnacle Buster my system. I was charged close to USD5 by the local TOYOTA dealer for 1 x 3 AMP fuse and he only had 2 in stock; on AMAZON you get 100 assorted of these fuses (2A thru 35A) for USD9.98 delivered to your door.

The key is having about 20 of these 2 amp fuses on hand, when you rebuild the pump… sometimes the draw is higher or you miss something on the pump rebuild and it shorts...and then there goes another fuse!!!

Easy to order on Amazon, but not easy to get in many parts of the world!

Bill,

 

Where in USA did you see the E51385 for sale? I have located some in AUSTRALIA but there is a payment issue which I think I can solve via my current boat agent in COOMERA but in case that fails I really want to have 2 or 3 for myself.

The normal amp draw of the FlowJet 4105-512 12VDC is 1.2. I assume that the "starting amperage" is momentarily higher. Considering everything, including voltage fluctuations when charging, maybe a 2 amp fuse is a little small.

 

I agree with you about installing multiple relays to replace the really nicely designed Frigoboat E51385 pump controller. If I had to replace the  E51385 with multiple relays, I would want to design an enclosure for the relays and a fuse for the load.

 

I have seen the E51385 for sale. I was probably old stock.

Thanks for that info Bill. I did not realize what changes have been made.
I would want to retain the blue box, as it is far simpler for us Amelians who have factory systems. Converting to relays and all the associated wiring would not be much fun.
Fortunately, I have had not issues with it, other than I had to go to a 3A fuse vs 2A. The 2A kept blowing unexpectedly - maybe an age thing there as the systems start to draw more current.
