Thanks Eric!

Much easier to read that the first fuzzy image you sent.

Still haven’t been aboard to complete the troubleshooting but plan to do so later this month.

Waterproofing the mast and wires for the electric motors

Mike Longcor (SV Trilogy)
 

Hello everyone,

I'm curious what methods people use for installing and waterproofing the furler and outhaul motor cables into the mast. Our previous cables were secured and sealed into the mast with gobs of silicon/marine sealant. This certainly worked but didn't look great and made for a challenge when pulling them. Is there a better way? Maybe some type of clamshell or waterproof conduit would be better here? Does anyone have a photo of their set up?

Cheers,
Mike Longcor

Re: C-Drive Oil drain - Alternative

 

Rudi, 

I agree with Craig and let me add one other point. If the seals or O ring on the wear bushing are allowing water to pass, I am sure that an increased vacuum will increase the water passing through. I also believe based on the drawing below that the hose that you are referring to would only allow you to pull oil out to the level of the hose fitting just under the top of the C-Drive.

Hi Rudi,

I commented on this in post #47906, which you might want to read. I suggested that 2-3 months with emulsified water-oil will not cause a problem and show pictures of my pristine drive shaft after 9 months of a "milk" bath.

I doubt that suction on one of the hoses will be effective as both are at the top of the upper unit and you'll just suck air once the oil level drops a bit.

C-Drive Oil drain - Alternative

Rudolf Waldispuehl
 

Dear AMEL Groupies


Is there a way to dain (pump/sucking) out bad Oil from the C-Drive while the boat is in water?
Recently (after 3 years) I got water ingress into the C-Drive. I cannot go out on hard right now for the next 2-3 Month. Haul out it planned for January-21. I don't move the boat anymore but still then, I don’t like. I don't like to have the milky Oil (mix of Oil and Salt water) in the c-drive for such a long Time. 


I was thinking there must be an alternative option to get rid of it while in water. Maybe I could suck that milky stuff out of the C-drive through the hose where the expansion container sits on top? 

Does anyone know if it works? And maybe someone on the forum has even done that?


What is the potential damage of the C-drive having this cream of oil/water inside (without driving the boat) ?


Any idea and advice is very welcome, best regards

For the price: US$ 350 or 300 Euro each.  


As I mentioned, the 4 injectors are in Sint Maarten where I hope to be back to Mid November.

But they are in Sint Maarten and I am stuck in France.

I purchased mine as spare from Diesel Services of America (I don’t recommend that company) but the Volvo part is 3581135 (for the TMD 22 P) - many mistakes are made with these injectors - mine are correct.

Re: Genoa Chain Plate bolts Leaking in aft hanging closet

eric freedman
 

I have been using that butyl tape over the boat for a few years. However, for this application I think I would use a polysulfide like boat life or something similar. I would not feel comfortable using butyl as I don't think I could get a continuous bond all the way through the hull.. Using butyl on deck fittings is great as you can put some around the underside of bolt holes and then some under the head of the bolts and it works great , but for the chain plate bolts I would not use butyl.

Re: Sq. footage of hull

Craig Briggs
 

Interesting that the Delos crew seem not to know that Amel has always used a barrier coat inside the gelcoat such that blisters are not an issue. After sand-blasting, which may have compromised the gelcoat/barrier coat they then applied 3 layer$ of barrier coat. Oh well, belts and suspender$ and suspender$ and suspender$. Great that a blog can handle the budget.

Re: Sq. footage of hull

SV Delos has a good video for measuring the sq footage of the SM2k bottom and they used 9 gal of primer "I think"for their bottom. Around 705sqft. One layer grey, one white, and another grey. Then they used a new tech type spray on coating for the anti foul.  But that video is SV Delos Bottom Work in Grenada and that will tell you exactly how much they used, I just haven't watched it in awhile.  Hope this helps, in reading what others put you have several options for sizes.  


Re: Leather steering wheel cover install

Yes you can see the unused holes, but it's really of no consequence


Re: Leather steering wheel cover install

Hi Gary,
No kit number, we had to measure.
And they are different, some wheels like ours with alloy spokes, some have round stainless spokes, no sure if the diameters are the same.
Cheers

Re: Leather steering wheel cover install

By a small amount I think all the dimensions were different enough to need a good accurate measurement. Sorry I can't remember more details. Should have written things down...

I wrote to them and asked about a kit for the SM .. Their reply was that "there are different sizes" so I needed to send measurements ...  
I didn't think this was the case.

May I ask if you got a "Kit" number or part number from them I could reference? If not, I'll start measuring (whick means stripping the old stuff off first, I presume).

Re: Leather steering wheel cover install

Gary- you have to remove the old cover and measure very carefully. I even sent pics of some of the measurements. Oddly, boat leather.com does not save measurements from previous orders. I was pretty sure I have Alan's same wheel (his is 437) but while the owner had a record that he sold something to Alan, he didn't save the measurements.
