Re: Any SM owners use a Beta engine??

Karen Smith
 

Dirk,

I can't think of a good reason to have two separate 12V alternators.  Charging a separate engine battery and a house battery bank can be handled in many less complex ways. Alternators are generally highly reliable, so a redundant system really isn't much benefit.  If you will have a lead-acid battery for the engine, with your lithium house system, a battery-to-battery charger would be the way to go.  That way you can program the B-to-B charger to match the charging profile needed by the other battery chemistry.

So... I would definitely go with the single large alternator.  Having Beta do the install is a lot simpler, since the PTO on the engine will be all set up for the heavy loads of the large alternator with brackets and mounting points all using their standard engineering.

Re: Any SM owners use a Beta engine??

Dirk Hazenoot Maramu Huli 171
 

Good day Amel lovers,
 
We are also planning to replace our perkins with a Beta 60 on our Maramu. We also plan to replace our batteries for 8 x 100 Ah lithium batteries. Is it sufficient to have one 175 Amp, 12 Volt Alternator installed on the engine by Beta marine or is it better to install a 175 Amp, 12 Volt Secondary Domestic Alternator separately in addition to the standard 70 Amp, 12 Volt Alternator? 
 
I would like to know from Amel lovers who also use a Beta 60 which Aternator configuration they have applied to their Beta 60.
 
Ps: what a great forum this is. My thanks to all those who make this forum possible.

Jose,

The O rings might look good, but still a good idea to change them out if you haven't already done so.  Make sure you put a lot of grease on the shaft before you put it back in the hole.

Re: Water ingress

 

There is one more possible source. Call it #7.

It is the hose and its connections from the anchor locker. The anchor locker hose is connected to a T fitting in the floor near the Depth Sounder. It is about a 25mm hose. Follow it back to the anchor locker, checking the hose and its connections.

Jose,

If the water is seawater as you say, the sources of the seawater in this spot in the order of probability are:
  1. Bow Thruster seals
  2. Toilet flush hose hole or crack forward of the saloon/forward bulkhead and/or its connection to the Jabsco Macerator.
  3. Air Conditioner seawater hose leaking (hole or crack) forward of the saloon/forward bulkhead and/or its connection to the forward air conditioner.
  4. Anchor wash hose leaking (hole or crack) forward of the saloon/forward bulkhead.
  5. AC seawater ball valve and thru-hull 
  6. Crack or hole in the seawater cooling jacket on the forward AC unit
I would test to see if it is number 2 - 4 above by turning OFF the ball-valve on the Secondary Saltwater Manifold. This will turn off the seawater supply to Toilets, Air Conditioner, and Anchor wash. You'll need to use fresh water to flush toilets via the shower. Even with the ball valve OFF, you may get some seawater because there will be some seawater in the manifold & lines. You could minimize the water in the manifold and lines by flushing the forward toilet, running the anchor wash, and running the AC pump, for about 10 seconds, each.

Re: Waterleak

 

This hose circled in green is the drain hose to the gray water sump (bilge). It carries mostly gray water, but some saltwater from the chain locker is carried to the bilge via this hose.

Hello Bill!

You are correct in your observation regarding the anchor wash system in my SM.
So, I already discard this option.
Regarding TDS test, I did not made the accurate test.
I order a TDS meter, but the taste is salted, no color or smell.
As long as I observe, the first place to show the seawater (assumed) is where you mark the green area.
Can you help me to identify this hose (picture) that comes out of the bow and passes under the floor of the front wc .. Its entire extension is moist with salt water, despite being attached to the top of the floor.

Thanks for the help

Hello Ken,

Following your advice, I checked the transducer o'ring and it seems ok. I'll keep an eye on it.
Thanks god I'm not having problem with the aft bathroom, but its nice to know your experience about it.

Thank you very much for the advices,


Keep safe

Re: Waterleak

Hi Jose,

we had similar puddles in the same area. I found that the hose clamp that holds the hose on the pipe through the wall aft had failed. It was only hold in place because the hose with clamp is very tight over the hull re-reinforcement (cross bracing) and prevents the broken clamp from falling down.

Yes. It is very worthwhile. It produces enough electricity for all electricity when sailing (when sailing at 5+ knots).
The alternator is an old style French one no longer made.
Do you still have the large pulley on the drive shaft wheel and the b
bracket for the alternator?

Re: Waterleak

Ken Powers SV Aquarius <ken@...>
 

These are two different areas.  I had problems with both over the past 4 years, and here is what I found to be the problems:

The front bathroom has the depth transponder.  The leak in this area usually has to do with the O rings that go around the transponder.  Remove the transponder and replace with the transponder with the plug.  Take off all the O Rings, and go down to the local hardware store and buy a replacement set and a few spares.  Replace them, and put a lot of waterproof grease on the transponder shaft.  Replace the shaft.  I was amazed when there was no water in this area for over a year!  Yes, absolutely dry.

Regarding the area in front of the aft bathroom.  Unless you have a problem with the plumbing from the shower base, which would indicate you have many problems, the salt water is coming from 3 locations.  You have a leak around the rudder shaft, or you have a leak in the standing rigging fitting in the closet.  This is the only place that I can think of where you would get salt water intrusion in that area.  So, start checking where the water is coming from.  Dry everything, and start taping paper towels everywhere until you locate the source of the salt water.  

All the best,
