Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] '81 Mango dinette cushion replacement

Hey there, if your in SoCal I HIGHLY recommend Rosario Boat Covers - they did my Amel Maramu upholstery and are amazing. 

They fixed so many issues my previous canvas/upholstery guy messed up.

Here is the latest work they did in my Salon:
New Salon Interior & Closet Curtains

 


Previous work on our canvas too:
New Clear Makrolon – Goodbye Blurry Eisenglass

 



Please tell them Jeremy from Cerulean sent you - he is very personable and is known as the BEST canvas guy in SoCal (His dad taught him and owned a shop in Marina Del Rey for over 30yrs).

Rosario: 310-702-9639

Note: He knows how picky us Amel owners are, and is more than willing to listen to detailed ideas and customization.

The mother of a friend of mine has an upholstery shop in Michigan. We shipped her complete cushions to replicate. The workmanship was excellent. My wife, who is very discerning when it comes to any sewing projects, did not find a single issue with any of the work. Her labor rates are a fraction of what's charged in California. Shipping wasn't cheap but the entire project came in at a very favorable price and we were extremely pleased with all aspects of the project. 

Drop me an email if you're interested and I'll see if I can dig up her contact information.

That wire powers the light on the 24VDC panel. It lights when the pump runs. If you splice it to the 24VDC positive wire running from the pressure switch on the Jabsco fresh water pump, it will light as it did with your Amel Installed pump.

Today I change the original fresh
water pump, with a Jabsco Par Max 4, not a big deal, but to
my surprise there was three cables to the old pump, One blue
negative one brown positive and a thin black wire also
negative. Both the Blue and the thin Black cable was
connected to the same terminal on my old pressure switch on
the old pump. My question for what purpose does the black
wire have?Paul on S/Y Kerpa

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] One wire to many?

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Hello again Paul,

I tend to micro manage everything…
In “my” opinion and experience, you should really fix it (could be as simple as the bulb) because it happened to me the pump kept running, which potentially could damage/overheat it.

My last time was the most stupid thing, I thought I would let the “flush” valve ON for the water maker… little by little it emptied my tank and the pump kept running… without the light I would not have noticed it…

Other times were:
-at sea when the batteries were getting a little low, not enough voltage to make it run to the point the pressure switch would stop.
-also when the sediments build up and clog the system (I fix that issue adding a water filter prior the fresh water pump).

Just my opinion, plus should be an easy fix! I still would check with a voltmeter, this wire really goes to the fresh water pump!
If you haven't look inside the 24 Volt panel, here are some pictures:

Sincerely, Alexandre

Good morning Paul,

Our serial number are not far away…
On my 24 Volt Panel, I have a little white light right next to the Dirupter/breaker of the Fresh Water pump
Have a look: http://nikimat.com/diruptor_24_volt_panel/diruptor_24_volt_panel_1.jpg

And I “think” (I would like other to confirm) that the little black wire you mention goes to that light to show the pump is running.

Hi

Could it be for the light on the switch panel to indicate the pump is on?

Today I change the original fresh water pump, with a Jabsco Par Max 4, not a big deal, but to my surprise there was three cables to the old pump, One blue negative one brown positive and a thin black wire also negative. Both the Blue and the thin Black cable was connected to the same terminal on my old pressure switch on the old pump. My question for what purpose does the black wire have?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] '81 Mango dinette cushion replacement

I can recommend North Beach Marine Canvas, in San Francisco.  Not cheap, but she does excellent work.

I have no idea if she will work “remotely” but probably worth a phone call.

I have a Mango that is in need of a high quality dinette cushion set.  I have had a tough time finding a local source. Does anybody have a good vendor that could potentially do this replacement remotely?  I live in Southern California.




Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Upgrading all electronics

rossienio@...
 

Hello Kent, My Sterling is the Procharge N, only charger. It has been installed a lot time ago, but I have seen the problem only now, touching the mooring, wet of salt water while connected to the shore power of the marina, with the battery charger on.
I have measured the voltage leak with the tester on AC (3V) and on DC (2,5V) connecting metallic part of the boat with sea water. Only when the B.C.  on.
I have isolated the generator ( all wires in and out disconnected),  but the phenomenon is still present.
Could you suggest me a kind of charger compatible with the Amel isolated ground system?
Now I'm using only solar panels but it is not enough. Thanks Enio 

 


Re: Rollbar stability

Stefania and Dietmar,

 

Welcome. Your arch looks very neat. To reduce flexing you could easily add some braces inside the top corners. An easy way would be to use short lengths of  matching stainless tubing with stainless clamps made for biminis or guardrails and use on maybe just the aft pair of pillars so you don't need some welding.

freight cost

Danny and Yvonne SIMMS
 

Hi all,
I have had some success in finding a gearbox and gearbox parts for our main furler. Parts from Amel Carribes and a full gearbox from Riza at Emek.
However the freight from Riza to Fiji is horrendous. The gearbox is 920 euro. The freight by UPS which Emek say is the best deal is 560 euro.
Anyone have comments or a better way to freight? Last question. Emerson in Australia want to quote but are asking details of the motor. My decals are mostly illegible. They are asking for the size of the motor and the frame number. Can anyone give me the motor details
Regards (not cheers this time)

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Changing oil VP TMD22

I think that is pretty normal, we get 4-5 liters depending on the temperature of the oil.

Hello!

When I change oil in my VP TMD 22, I never get out more than ca 4 liter, The manual say 6 liter.

I use the on purpose "fixed" oil change pump, What do I do wrong? or is it similar for you others with the TMD22?
