Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] AC Panel Green Light

Thanks Bill .  I will check out light source as well as meter.  I have been thinking a Cruz Pro or maybe Blue Sea would be invaluable.  Especially in older marinas where you could experience low or high voltage and be unawares.  I did put a multi meter on my generator and found it was putting out only 200 vac.  I was able to go into control box and adjust upward to 220 vac.  A permanently installed meter would have informed me much sooner.

The Green 220VAC light on BeBe has gotten dimmer with age. I have not looked, but I am guessing it is a 220VAC LED.

This, or something similar would likely work:

You may want to consider installing something more than a bulb, which really tells you nothing.

I installed a CruzPro VAF110. It is a TriData meter that tells me Volts, Amps being consumed, and Frequency (50 or 60htz). http://www.cruzpro.com/vaf110.html


This gives me data on shore power and on generator power, which ever source is delivering power to the main AC breaker box.

I am sure that there are other meters/gauges that do the same thing.

Best,

Bill

One should be an engine start battery and the other 8 should be deep cycle or EV.

Good morning Mark & Eric,

Mark thanks for the info. And you still have the starting battery in the compartment?

Eric, are these EV batteries still flooded?

Alexandre,Group 31’s are larger
. you would have to measure the space to see if they fit.
Try to get Delco (good brand) batteries marked EV (electric
vehicle) they are better than deep cycle batteries and 12
volts..You will have to make
new connecting bars.Fair

Good
afternoon,

As you might
know, the power has been out in Puerto Rico since Wednesday.

So had to use the genset to recharge the
batteries…
After 1/2 hour the charger
won’t allow more than 3 amp…
Plus after
an hour (even hatch open) the engine room becomes too hot to
keep using the generator (without risking damage to the
control board) - which is another issue I need to address
(and yes, all the fan are working).

Battery choice is limited here in Puerto
Rico… what do you think of AC Delco?
Seems to be the only supplier.

Now I have Group 27.
For those who have the 8 House batteries, will
the Group 31 fit?

If you
know a supplier of Good batteries in Puerto Rico, let me
know

Thanks in advance.

I have found AC Delco, Deka and Trojan dealers here in Puerto Rico, but I will look at that shipping option especially since they sell Rolls Surrette batteries!

Trying to figure what fits…

Alex,
About 9 years ago when we were in
Bonaire, we contacted DC Battery, a battery supplier in
Miami, Florida http://www.dcbattery.com/
We purchased 13 batteries from them.
They placed them on a pallet and shipped via a scheduled
transport ship to the islands. The ship made a trip once a
week and stopped at about 8-10 islands. I am betting this
may be the best way to go once you decide which battery you
want. And, because it is US to US territory, customs should
be easy. I think the total freight from DC Battery to
dockside at our boat via local transport was $250 USD.

Hello Alexandre,  Your boat originally came

much better for you.   If you have a NAPA in PR,  you

get their group 31 deep cycle batteries.   Miles

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: AC Delco Deep Cycle batteries?

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Bill,

Thanks for your email.
I have found AC Delco, Deka and Trojan dealers here in Puerto Rico, but I will look at that shipping option especially since they sell Rolls Surrette batteries!

Trying to figure what fits…

Thanks again, sincerely, Alexandre

Alex,
About 9 years ago when we were in
Bonaire, we contacted DC Battery, a battery supplier in
Miami, Florida http://www.dcbattery.com/
We purchased 13 batteries from them.
They placed them on a pallet and shipped via a scheduled
transport ship to the islands. The ship made a trip once a
week and stopped at about 8-10 islands. I am betting this
may be the best way to go once you decide which battery you
want. And, because it is US to US territory, customs should
be easy. I think the total freight from DC Battery to
dockside at our boat via local transport was $250 USD.

Thanks Miles.



I will double check the measurements of the battery
compartment.



If someone has recommendations for other batteries that I
can find in Puerto Rico, please don't hesitate.



Thanks again, sincerely, Alexandre

Hello Alexandre,  Your boat originally came

with group 31 batteries.   Their larger capacity will
work

much better for you.   If you have a NAPA in PR,  you
can

get their group 31 deep cycle batteries.   Miles

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: AC Delco Deep Cycle batteries?

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Alex,

About 9 years ago when we were in Bonaire, we contacted DC Battery, a battery supplier in Miami, Florida http://www.dcbattery.com/

We purchased 13 batteries from them. They placed them on a pallet and shipped via a scheduled transport ship to the islands. The ship made a trip once a week and stopped at about 8-10 islands. I am betting this may be the best way to go once you decide which battery you want. And, because it is US to US territory, customs should be easy. I think the total freight from DC Battery to dockside at our boat via local transport was $250 USD.

Thanks Miles.

I will double check the measurements of the battery compartment.

If someone has recommendations for other batteries that I can find in Puerto Rico, please don't hesitate.

Thanks again, sincerely, Alexandre

Hello Alexandre,  Your boat originally came
with group 31 batteries.   Their larger capacity will work
much better for you.   If you have a NAPA in PR,  you can
get their group 31 deep cycle batteries.   Miles  Ladybug  SM 216, Newport,

Alexandre,

Good morning Mark & Eric,

Mark thanks for the info. And you still have the starting battery in the compartment?

Eric, are these EV batteries still flooded?

Sincerely, Alexandre

Alexandre,Group 31’s are larger
. you would have to measure the space to see if they fit.
Try to get Delco (good brand) batteries marked EV (electric
vehicle) they are better than deep cycle batteries and 12
volts..You will have to make
new connecting bars.Fair

Deep Cycle batteries?   
Good
afternoon,

As you might
know, the power has been out in Puerto Rico since Wednesday.

So had to use the genset to recharge the
batteries…
After 1/2 hour the charger
won’t allow more than 3 amp…
Plus after
an hour (even hatch open) the engine room becomes too hot to
keep using the generator (without risking damage to the
control board) - which is another issue I need to address
(and yes, all the fan are working).

Battery choice is limited here in Puerto
Rico… what do you think of AC Delco?
Seems to be the only supplier.

Now I have Group 27.
For those who have the 8 House batteries, will
the Group 31 fit?

If you
know a supplier of Good batteries in Puerto Rico, let me
know

Thanks in advance.

Sincerely, Alexandre

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: AC Delco Deep Cycle batteries?

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Thanks Miles.

I will double check the measurements of the battery compartment.

If someone has recommendations for other batteries that I can find in Puerto Rico, please don't hesitate.

Thanks again, sincerely, Alexandre

Hello Alexandre,  Your boat originally came
with group 31 batteries.   Their larger capacity will work
much better for you.   If you have a NAPA in PR,  you can
get their group 31 deep cycle batteries.   Miles  Ladybug  SM 216, Newport,

Hello Alexandre,

 

Your boat originally came with group 31 batteries.   Their larger capacity will work much better for you.   If you have a NAPA in PR,  you can get their group 31 deep cycle batteries.

Good morning Mark & Eric,

Mark thanks for the info. And you still have the starting battery in the compartment?

Eric, are these EV batteries still flooded?

Good
afternoon,

As you might
know, the power has been out in Puerto Rico since Wednesday.

So had to use the genset to recharge the
batteries…
After 1/2 hour the charger
won’t allow more than 3 amp…
Plus after
an hour (even hatch open) the engine room becomes too hot to
keep using the generator (without risking damage to the
control board) - which is another issue I need to address
(and yes, all the fan are working).

Battery choice is limited here in Puerto
Rico… what do you think of AC Delco?
Seems to be the only supplier.

Now I have Group 27.
For those who have the 8 House batteries, will
the Group 31 fit?

If you
know a supplier of Good batteries in Puerto Rico, let me
know

Thanks in advance.

Re: AC earth on SM and SN

Herbert Lackner
 

Enio,

the original shaft alternator delivers max. 25A (valeo 14V 25A). The shaft alternator must not be used under engine, only when sailing (otherwise it will turn too fast).

I understand that you are finding out how to deliver more power to your sterling charger that can handle up to 100A output. To avoid costly changes I would recommend that you check the Amps that your batteries will accept when getting charged under normal conditions. If your batteries will not take more then e.g. 60A or 70A  even your 100A sterling charger will not be able to load them faster and the more powerful alternator is not necessary. If your batteries accept such a high load current than changes would make sense.

Group 31’s are larger . you would have to measure the space to see if they fit. Try to get Delco (good brand) batteries marked EV (electric vehicle) they are better than deep cycle batteries and 12 volts..

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] re: sm jib furler failure.

Bill Kinney <greatketch@...>
 

I have thought for a while that the story about the rivets being shear pins is an urban myth only given credence by repetition.  

From an engineering standpoint aluminum rivets make absolutely terrible shear pins, for a lot of reasons.  Amels are engineered way better than that.  I think the rivets were used in an effort to prevent galvanic corrosion, not as torque limiters.  The tendency of the rivets to tear out under load was a bug, NOT a feature.  

I am glad to see Amel recognized they cause more problems than they solve and changed to bolts.

For the record, Amel Caribe in Martinique oversaw and provided parts for a refit of the whole attachment system last July. The rivets were removed, the holes enlarged and backing plate pieces slid into the slots to reinforce the tube. Then steel hex bolts were threaded through the foil tube, spacers and into new threads made on the furler. It's hugely stronger and won't ever elongate the holes or break rivets. It won't shear either, so that part is given up. Tef-gel or Lanacote required to help hold off dissimilar metal galvanic corrosion.
So far i'm happy with with the conversion. No special tools required now should I have to separate the foil from the furler.

ALSO: there is a hard nylon piece that slides inside the swivel to prevent any play between the locating table the swivel and the groove in the foil. It's called simply the "Crayon" (because it kind of looks like one :) It's a cool little piece that prevents wear to both the foil and the swivel. Sorry if that was sort of off topic :)

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] AC Delco Deep Cycle batteries?

Hello Kent,

I should have specified, I was looking for deep cycle only, either the AC Delco M27MF or the ACDM27DC
The first one weight 55 lbs, the second 63 lbs which indicates me a better battery.

Also looking at the Trojan 27TMX, but not sure its height of 235 mm or 9.24” will fit…

I last check all the cells, they were good except 1 cell.
Now would be useless because I can’t get passed 92% charged…
I don’t know if I can equalize with my charger… I will look.

It looks like the internet at the marina you stay at is on (meaning they have power), hope the power comes back here soon.

Sincerely, Alexandre

Hi Alex,I replaced my batteries
in PR with series 27 Interstate batteries that are a hybrid
between cranking and deep cycle.  After a month they were
only lasting half as long.  My charger wouldn't do an
equalization cycle, and I discovered that the recommended
absorption voltage was 31V!  Terrible choice of batteries.
 I've bought a new Victron charger with an equalization
mode and hope I'll be able to bring them back.
Have you checked the
batteries for cranking amps and specific gravity?  Can you
equalize them with your charger?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] AC Delco Deep Cycle batteries?

Hi Alex,
I replaced my batteries in PR with series 27 Interstate batteries that are a hybrid between cranking and deep cycle.  After a month they were only lasting half as long.  My charger wouldn't do an equalization cycle, and I discovered that the recommended absorption voltage was 31V!  Terrible choice of batteries.  I've bought a new Victron charger with an equalization mode and hope I'll be able to bring them back.

Have you checked the batteries for cranking amps and specific gravity?  Can you equalize them with your charger?

Good afternoon,

As you might know, the power has been out in Puerto Rico since Wednesday.
So had to use the genset to recharge the batteries…
After 1/2 hour the charger won’t allow more than 3 amp…
Plus after an hour (even hatch open) the engine room becomes too hot to keep using the generator (without risking damage to the control board) - which is another issue I need to address (and yes, all the fan are working).

Battery choice is limited here in Puerto Rico… what do you think of AC Delco?
Seems to be the only supplier.

Now I have Group 27.
For those who have the 8 House batteries, will the Group 31 fit?

If you know a supplier of Good batteries in Puerto Rico, let me know

Thanks in advance.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] re: sm jib furler failure.

karkauai
 

Just be sure you don't leave the halyard for the other headsail up and try to furl.   Don't take your eyes off the foil when you're rolling in or out.  If you break or twist that foil you're going to have an expensive and potentially dangerous situation on your hands.  Might not be able to get the sail furled or be able to drop the sail either.

For the record, Amel Caribe in Martinique oversaw and provided parts for a refit of the whole attachment system last July. The rivets were removed, the holes enlarged and backing plate pieces slid into the slots to reinforce the tube. Then steel hex bolts were threaded through the foil tube, spacers and into new threads made on the furler. It's hugely stronger and won't ever elongate the holes or break rivets. It won't shear either, so that part is given up. Tef-gel or Lanacote required to help hold off dissimilar metal galvanic corrosion.
So far i'm happy with with the conversion. No special tools required now should I have to separate the foil from the furler.

ALSO: there is a hard nylon piece that slides inside the swivel to prevent any play between the locating table the swivel and the groove in the foil. It's called simply the "Crayon" (because it kind of looks like one :) It's a cool little piece that prevents wear to both the foil and the swivel. Sorry if that was sort of off topic :)
