Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Optional 110 Volt shore power, which wire goes where

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Bill,

Well, still no answer on my question…
Would be nice if the people with the optional 110 Volt converter who have a plug (and have used it) let me know.
May be Amel or Olivier could answer…

Thanks again, sincerely, Alexandre

Jamie,
Your reply to Alex may be correct, but could be
misinterpreted.
Connecting a EU boat without a transformer to
US power:

The US "White" wire is not used from the shore to
the boat when wiring a EU boat to US type power. The short
answer is that 220VAC 60htz power has 4 wires and a 230VAC
50htz has three wires. The wire NOT used is the white from
shore power. If you use the white, you will have problems
including electrocution. Go to Photos and search on
"shore" then navigate to the shore power wiring
diagram.
Refer to this graphic when connecting a EU boat
without a transformer to US power. A EU boat with a
transformer should wire the transformer according to the
specifications supplied by the manufacturer.
Alex's situation is somewhat confused
because the wire from the US plug to the transformer is NOT
color coded to US schemes, probably because they did not
have that wire available, but that is just a guess.
I have seen at least 4 Amels wired incorrectly
to US shore power. Most that I have seen disregard the Earth
(green/yellow) and connect the Red110 to Blue, the Black 110
to Brown and the White to the boat's Earth (center
prong). This will electrocute you when you touch any center
prong on an AC outlet in the boat, the AC water pump, any
bonding item such as the propeller or zinc...and may kill
someone diving to clean your boat.
I hope this helps all who connect their Amels
to US type 220VAC 60htz.

Re: Capacity AMFA Bilge Pump???

Paul Osterberg
 

Thank you for charing your experience,
I,m not so surprised about the cost, I had my pump fixed in Turkey at the cost of a new pump I guess, still I have to put it a part myself, then it worked good for a short while. Now it need about 50 strokes before it start pumping, I do not what to spend to much in repairing it but maybe buy one or two new ones instead

Re: Capacity AMFA Bilge Pump???

svperegrinus@yahoo.com
 

The manual pump's outflow hose was cut above the two toilet pumps and a "Y" inserted.  The secondary electric's output flows into the Y.  An electronic no-moving parts immersion switch by Johnsons Controls, which I believe is rated 10V to 30V, was zip tied to an uptake hose at a suitable height.

Lessons learned:

1.  The Jabsco secondary is now unnecessary.  Since a replacement "version 2" pump was installed, the Jabsco sits there, unused.  However, during the years we dealt with the original pump's temperamental issues, it was nice to have the Jabsco kick in anytime the AMFA just spun its wheels.

2.  The AMFA/TF pump has only the "rough" strainer in the bilge and is otherwise able to pass all kinds of refuse.  The Jabsco, even though it has lasted _decades_ on other boats, requires a mesh strainer, mesh which requires frequent cleaning (once a month).  Don't make this Jabsco your primary.

3.  The electronic switch gets coated in gooey and requires cleaning about 4 times a year.  By comparison, the genius Amel float switch we only clean about once a year.

4.  With the money we spent from 2013 to 2015 in having the original pump overhauled three times with Amel-sourced parts (including the plastic piston once), always by people who have done the AMFA pump dozens of times, up to and including an Amel factory technician in La Rochelle, plus having to install a backup pump, we could  and should just have bought a brand new pump in 2013.  And another as spare!  

Cheerio,

Paul,

I have received quotes from Topsail twice. When I carefully read their policy, I decided not to use them. I have forgotten the specific reasons, and maybe something has changed.

I did notice the 25 gallon/minute requirement and the rigging less than 10 years old. The pump requirement was only that this existed and was working. There was nothing about automatic. The rigging requirement had an exception written in their quote if you presented them with a rigging inspection.

The following are the conditions in my Topsail Quote:
Topsail  Insurance  Yacht  and  Motorboat  Policy  Wording  dated  29/01/2015  –  Version  1  –  Barbican  Norway
***Vessel  marina  berthed  when  unattended  any  period  in  excess  of  24  hours
***Subject  to  a  25  gallon  per  minute  bilge  pump  being  on  board  and  operational
***Subject  to  a  minimum  of  2  experienced  crew  being  onboard,  subject  to  self-steering  gear being  fitted  and  fully  operational  (see Section  8,  Additional  Benefits,  Single-Handed  Sailing)
***Subject  to  the  standing  rigging  not  exceeding  10  years  of  age  unless  supported  by  a  satisfactory  rig  inspection  by  a  qualified  rig surveyor
***Subject  to  the  Vessel  being  below  12  degrees  7  minutes  North  for the  period  1st  June  to  30th  November  both  dates  inclusive  whilst West  of  50  degrees  West

I wondered about the failure of components mentioned above. As example: Would you not be in compliance if the autopilot failed in the middle of the ocean? The agent quoting me did not give me a clear answer.

Hope this helps you.

The manual pump is rated at 75 liters/minute.

Paul, I had this issue with Velos Insurance. They wanted a "bilge" pump at a higher rating than either the automatic, or the manual.

I explained to them the watertight compartments and the fact that the total if the two pumps was greater than their "rule."

They ok'd the SUPER MARAMU based on watertight compartments and the standard pumps. And, BTW, I assume that Mark is correct, but I told Velos that each pump was rated at 75 liters.

Hello!

Does anyone know the capacity of the AMFA Bilge pump, and the manual bilge pump? One of the insurance companies that we got a quote from , demand combined capacity of minimum 95 l/min. Most pumps capacities are usually rated at no lifting height at all, have not measured the total lifting height yet , but guess more close to 1.5- 2 meter which has a substantial impact on capacity.

Or, the pump can be replaced with what Amel calls "Version 2" of the pump, which is still made in Italy, the TF Marine TM 50.



During our years-long struggle with the original AMFA pump (which was repaired several times by technicians extremely experienced with it, always using Amel-supplied parts, and was even repaired by an Amel-factory mechanic in La Rochelle in 2015), we installed a secondary pump on an electronic float.  This pump is a Jabsco 36600-0010, 7.4 GPM (28 lpm).



The Jabsco secondary hasn't fired (automatically) not even once since the TF was installed, but I activate it manually about once a month.



In total, with two electric pumps, Peregrinus has 58 litres per minute electric bilge capacity.  You should know I have purposefully run both while furiously pumping manually: there was no lock on the water exhaust and the bilge emptied out very, very quickly!

You who had an extra bilge pup installed, how have you done that? By connecting it's outlet with a Y connection to one of the out let hoses from the manual or the electric bilge pump?
Do you have a separate float switch for the "spare" pump

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Optional 110 Volt shore power, which wire goes where

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Kent,

I was asking for the 110 Volt.

We have the same for the 220 volt (US red or black are the same, 110 volt each).

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Optional 110 Volt shore power, which wire goes where

Good morning Jamie,

Thanks for your reply on the 110 volt.

As I mentioned I have very little knowledge on electricity.

But that I am certain on the 220 volt connection I mentioned. Which is confusing if you add extension cord as it has a white wire (which is not connected to the white of the marina):

Marina (US) Extension Cord Vessel
Black 110 Volt Black Brown
Red or Black 110 Volt White Blue
Ground Green Green yellow/green
White nowhere


Before I receive my vessel, this is how I was told to make the shore connection from the 4 US wires to the 3 European ones, this was also confirm on the forum several time.
Why? I am unfortunately not the right person to ask…

Sincerely, Alexandre

Alexandre,
the blue wire goes to the neutral connection. The brown wire
goes to the hot, and the green/yellow goes to
ground.
I am

be your neutral.

Re: Capacity AMFA Bilge Pump???

svperegrinus@yahoo.com
 

Or, the pump can be replaced with what Amel calls "Version 2" of the pump, which is still made in Italy, the TF Marine TM 50.

During our years-long struggle with the original AMFA pump (which was repaired several times by technicians extremely experienced with it, always using Amel-supplied parts, and was even repaired by an Amel-factory mechanic in La Rochelle in 2015), we installed a secondary pump on an electronic float.  This pump is a Jabsco 36600-0010, 7.4 GPM (28 lpm).

The Jabsco secondary hasn't fired (automatically) not even once since the TF was installed, but I activate it manually about once a month.

In total, with two electric pumps, Peregrinus has 58 litres per minute electric bilge capacity.  You should know I have purposefully run both while furiously pumping manually: there was no lock on the water exhaust and the bilge emptied out very, very quickly!

Cheers,

I have the Jabsco 50890-1100 waste pump as a spare.  It is 24v, self priming to 3m, and pumps 19 lpm.  I have not tried it yet.  It is available in the US and Europe.

I was under the impression the original model bilge pump is rated for 30 litres/minute (7.9 gal/minute).

 

The "lifting head" should be 10 metres and "self priming" should be 2.5 metres.

Hello!

Does anyone know the capacity of the AMFA Bilge pump, and the manual bilge pump? One of the insurance companies that we got a quote from , demand combined capacity of minimum 95 l/min. Most pumps capacities are usually rated at no lifting height at all, have not measured the total lifting height yet , but guess more close to 1.5- 2 meter which has a substantial impact on capacity.
