Will keep my  eyes open. Are you aware we once met in La Rochelle in 2009 or 2010 when I took over CHIARA? We had a 10 min talk together.

Hi Ann-Sofie,


Thank you so much for this perfect guidance. Now I know what to do and can act accordingly. Extremly helpful!

In fact it could really happen that I come by and say hello in Portimao! I want to be in Lagos on Sept 24th.

Hi Bill,
Thanks for the reply. I have contacted the previous owner and he has confirmed there are none on the motor. 
Seemed strange to me but I will stop looking now.
Thanks again

Peter,

I can not speak specifically to your engine, but not every engine was designed with anodes.   Some freshwater cooled Volvos, for example, don't use them. 

If a search of the owners manual and shop manual turn up no references to anodes, you might not have them.

Hi to all,

I have a question about the anode on my Mango’s Perkins 4236 engine. There doesn’t  seem to be one on the engine or any piping for the engine cooling system.
There are two anodes on the prop shaft as well as the rudder ones. Is this something that wasn’t required? 
I have had a look in the files and can find no reference.
Any help or advice would be appreciated.
Regards

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Bridle on snubber attached on 2nd anchor rope.

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good afternoon Bill,

Definitely makes sense: no sliding no chafing.

I was a bit concerned about how difficult to undo a tight ‚Äúbowline on a bight‚Ä̂Ķ
so very interesting for the Alpine Butterfly know !!! Because it is easy to do (and especially untie) I might do that one.
Thanks for the video - I am a visual person!

Since there is more than one way to skin a cat, I am sure i will hear many other knots!

Sincerely, Alexandre

Ian:
My issue with chain hooks has
actually been the reverse.  Rather than having them stick
on, I have had them fall off when exposed to an unexpected
bit of slack.  Usually in a shallower anchorage where the
length of the snubber approaches, or exceeds, the depth of
the water.  The second time that happened, I went back to
knots.
Alexandre,
A properly set up rolling hitch
will not slide.  If no sliding:  then no chafe.  If you
would prefer to tie to a loop, I find the “alpine
butterfly‚ÄĚ to be easier to tie, and more importantly
easier to untie, than the bowline on a bight.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2aRj8dQPRQ

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Bridle on snubber attached on 2nd anchor rope.

Good afternoon Ben,Jean-Pierre and Bill (SM#160, Harmony),

Thanks for your reply.

Likely this will be used on the bow (in case of strong weather).

I thought of using a ‚Äúsingle bowline on the bight‚ÄĚ but very interesting about the rolling hitch, no risk of chafe (on a rope)?

Ian, I use a chain hook on my chain, will admit that a couple of time had to use the gentle tap of a hammer to disengage it. May be I will great it in the future.
My question is really about bridle on a (2nd anchor) rope.

Sincerely, Alexandre

Rub Rail protection

Mike Ondra
 

Continuing with rub rail upgrades. What experience has anyone had with adding a vinyl rub rail to the Amel fiberglass rub rail. An example 1.5‚ÄĚ high is the Taco V11-9795 Semi-Rigid Rub Rail (continuous 50 ft length with backer screwed to the fiberglass then the vinyl insert covering the screws). Seems like it would be a nice layer of protection for the fiberglass.

Thanks,

Hi Alexandre and Bill,


 Different ships, different long  splices, as the saying goes. We have used a  heavy duty stainless chain hook for over 20 years , both on a Maramu and Supermaramu,and Judy ( who looks after the foredeck for anchoring) has  yet to have a problem disengaging the hook from the chain--even on those occasions when, in the dark ( usually about 0300...), an unexpected wind shift puts us on a lee shore. Even though  women do have an   ability  unknown to man to untangle warps, sheets, flag halyards, fishing line etc ( all without cussing!) I don't think Judy has  had to reach for any special skills  when dealing with a chain hook.

Usually when using an anchor with line instead of chain I do not use a bridle. I take the line through the bow chock tie it directly to the cleat and add suitable chairing gear at the chock. 

If for some reason I need a bridle, I attach it to the anchor line with a rolling hitch. That's also  the way I attach my bridle to a chain rode. I have had too may bad experiences with chain hooks and a proper rolling hitch has never let me down.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Perkins 4236 Anodes

Peter,

I can not speak specifically to your engine, but not every engine was designed with anodes.   Some freshwater cooled Volvos, for example, don't use them. 

If a search of the owners manual and shop manual turn up no references to anodes, you might not have them.

There are two anodes on the prop shaft as well as the rudder ones. Is this something that wasn’t required? 
I have had a look in the files and can find no reference.
Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Hi Alex,
I don't believe you need to add a snubber to a rope.  The snubber adds elasticity to the  non-elastic chain.  The nylon rope is inherently elastic.

Mike, When I painted my rub rail I did not remove it , I just lifted the edge and slid a piece of probably 1/4" line under it to hold it up and out of the way . After painting ,just pulled the line out, very simple.

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] rubber Rub Rail gutter

 
We are repainting the rubrail after 16 years of doing its job. How easy or difficult has the experience been to remove the rubber rub rail gutter and then re-install it. The cross-sectional drawing detail implies this should be a fairly easy task of pulling up on the inboard side of the gutter and rotating the gutter up and out, the outboard side being ‚Äúnotched‚ÄĚ around the edge of the fiberglass forming the rub rail. Installation would be the reverse, perhaps benefitting from a little lubrication. Our concern is that the rubber has hardened and stiffened over the years and may not be sufficiently pliable to accomplish removal and installation easily.

We just left there and I had not heard about contamination issues. I want to day the price was around ‚ā¨0,80 per litre while across at La Linea it was ‚ā¨1,40 ish.
Be prepared for a pretty long line up if you are coming dockside. It is a very busy fuel dock.

Martin,

My experience is the same as others reporting in this thread.

One more thing...since we were crossing the Atlantic, we wanted to also fill Jerry cans. The attendant told me that some British authorities would have a problem with that. He told me that I could fill them if they were on the boat, rather than filling them on the dock. There was a very small assortment of food, booze and drink at the fuel station. Our very last GB Pounds were spent on some things there since we were headed west.

There is so much fuel pumped at the Gibraltar fuel dock, I have a difficult time believing that any was contaminated.
