Re: diruptors

 

Breakers are typically single pole or double pole and vary in amp load capability. Most of the AC breakers on your SM are double pole, switching when you are connected to EU type power, the Hot Brown wire, and the Return Blue wire. You have at least 1 double pole DC breaker for the SSB. If there is a short in a Diruptor circuit, the breaker will not reset.

In the US the AC double pole breakers are typically used to switch 2 legs of 110-115VAC. The Neutral (White) is typically not switched. If you are using US type power, the SM AC breakers will switch both US type legs of the AC power as long as you wire the US type AC shore power plug correctly.

Hello Bill, 


Not sure I really understood the question.  Did you mean how many amp?

If so, look at my links below.

That was an excellent meeting Bill.  Many thanks to you, Gary Golden, and Tilo for putting it on.  I liked the concept of insuring against an agreed upon value for total loss.  Using depreciated value almost always leads to lengthy battles with your insurer over what they will pay for.  Looking forward to what Gary comes back to the group with regarding Amel Group insuring options.
Regards,
Dave

Re: Amel Euros 41 anyone?

Rachel & Andy <rachellouisesmith0971@...>
 

Hello Miles,

Thank you for your message. We are looking forward to chatting with other Euros owners.
We love our boat and would love to compare notes with others.
Where are you based?

Rachel and Andy


Re: Amel Euros 41 anyone?

smiles bernard
 

Hi there Rachel and Andy

I have a later Maramu but we had the pleasure of meeting a group on a euros 41 in Martenique 
It was hurricane damaged but being brought back to former glory. 
It’s the first time I’ve been up close to a Euros. Looked like a lovely safe sea boat with lots of the great Amel features that have seemed to pass through the line over the years. 

Best of luck with the hunt for more Euros owners

Re: Crack in the pole

Just remove the ends,  get a new tube from McMaster - Carr, and reinstall the ends on a new tube. It is not that difficult. 
Or you can weld a sleeve on cracked tube.

Re: Cleaning Water Heater

Unfortunately, I can't claim that, Gerhard.  I replaced the whole element/thermostat/zinc assembly a few years ago. At that time it was about 3 years old, and the old zinc was about half gone.

Once I had a short circuit in the water heater of my boiler. When taking out the heater element I saw there never has been any zinc element. The boiler was less than 2 years old. So I claimed the vendor and after some discussions the vendor delivered a new water heater with zinc element for free. Obviously it was a fault by the manufacturer to not have installed the zinc element.

Re: Crack in the pole

 

Find a rigger near you. You need to replace the aluminum tube. All of the other pieces can be moved to the new tube and riveted in place.

Re: Keel rust and ballast straps on a Maramu

smiles bernard
 

Hi there 

I'll connect from the busbar to another common ground point which then connects back to the rudder shaft and hence anodes
I notice on our boat that there used to be a bonding strap onto the prop shaft seal housing 
The bonding copper mesh was attached by a jubilee clip so has broken off 
A previous owner has i think replaced the original shaft log with one of those dripless ones that you need to burp when you launch to get water in 
I suspect the original one was fed from a water T off the exhaust 
So i'm in two minds as to if i need to bond this in - but assume it wont do any harm if i do 

All the best
Miles
