Hi Bill,

That's very helpful.  I'll check when we get back to Solitude in a couple of hours.  It's 38C here in Port Grimaud so we've retired to the pub for a couple of hours.

How is the Marina in Barcelona?

Mike, Yes I do.

In the aft cabin, open the door on the port side and closest to the stern. On the top left inside there is a wiring block. It might be behind the lining. That is your stern light. I know because I pulled a new wire from that point after we did the stern solar arch.

Hi,

Does any one know the routing of the stern navigation light wiring?

Our SM2K has voltage at the port and starboard navigation lights but zero at the stern navigation light. All the wiring at the light and through the aft locker appears OK as does the light switch in the galley.

Would appreciate any help.

We had a similar problem. We also got a voltage reading on the bow lights and no reading on the stern light. When we tested with a bulb on the port light there was not enough amperage to turn the light on. (Not enough juice. We traced the problem to the connectors in the bow which led us to rewire the bow lights due to water damage. Once done the stern light worked. The stern light we think is routed to the stern light from the bow connections.
Hope this helps.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Check Valve AMFA Reya 66b fresh water pump

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 


Andrew,

Yes, a very slow leak. Now that I have the old one off, I can't believe it was that slow because I can blow a significant amount of air through it. 

If you have no leaks, but lose pressure and the pump cycles, the check valve is likely the problem. But, of course, it was 13 years old!

How did you ascertain that it was leaking backwards - was it simply because the water pressure was falling without anything turned on?

I just replaced the one-way check valve which was 13 years old. It was leaking pressure and water back to the tank.

It was a simple job and this part is available in any plumbing supply in Europe or the US. It is a 1/2" brass one-way check valve with female connections on each end. There is a 1/2" nipple screwed into each end so a 1/2" one-way check valve with male connections on each end is actually easier to use.

I had to use pipe joint paint and Teflon tape to get a good seal.

And you may need to replace the fiber washer where the tank water connects to the pump. Just turn off the pump and bleed the water pressure. Disconnect the tank hose, loosen the Amel bonding wire clamp, and unscrew the brass check valve from the bronze pump housing.

This worn and leaking check valve has been the reason that my pump has recently randomly dropped pressure and cycled ON. I can't fault it too much..it is 13 years old and has been n piratically non-stop.

Hi Eric,

How about pressurizing from the engine back with the seacock closed and looking with soapy water?  If it holds pressure, that should mean there's no leak and something else is amiss.

Steve & Liz:

 

My SM has the negative (suction) sensor alarm plumbed into the sea chest.  This consists of a small line/tube that comes off of the sea chest, runs upward and forward to a S shaped trap mounted next to the fuel tank near the forward engine room bulkhead, to which a sensor is attached.  That sensor is a Parker Hannifen PN S.250002 (that was the PN on the box for the replacement that I received from Amel).  It can be tested by closing the sea chest then using the head sea-water-fill switch to create a vacuum in the sea chest.  It gives an audible alarm at the head of the companionway. Mine had failed at about the 10 year mark (at least that is when I discovered it).  I suspect it had failed earlier.  As there is small column of sea water in the hose, there is always a salty humid environment in that hose and rust had occluded the base of the sensor.  I treated the replacement sensor with Corrosion X prior to installation but I suspect this will be a repetitive problem.

 

I suggest:

1.  testing the sensor a couple of times a year,

2.  dismounting the sensor from its S shaped water trap periodically to treat corrosion

3.  installing an exhaust hose temperature sensor such as the Borel item mentioned, just after the turbo sea water injection fitting 

4.  impeller failures are more common than anything and I have stepped up my impeller inspection program aft the following incident:

 

We melted the Vetus water lift and burned up the lining of the exhaust hose from the Yanmar main engine to the water trap due to a failed impeller.  We had been motoring for only about 5 minutes thru a channel into Gorda Sound on Virgin Gorda BVI, when we smelled something burning.  I checked engine gauges and all appeared normal.  I shut down the engine, opened the engine compartment and was greeted by a column of black smoke that made entering the engine compartment impossible.  I thought we were going to burn down.  As the smoke cleared enough to see, I could tell there were no flames, I could also see that the Vetus water lift was distorted and had a whole in it from which was issuing the black smoke. I felt the temp of the hose and it was extremely hot.  I cooled the hose from the engine turbo water injection port to the Vetus with water from the cockpit shower, squirting it up into the exhaust hose as far as I could get it and the internal fire went out.  At no time did fire penetrate that hose, thankfully. Next came the job of sailing the boat onto a mooring (that tested my skills a bit) and securing replacement parts on Virgin Gorda.  Only damage done was to the Vetus and the 3 foot section of hose.  However, my wife was badly shaken.  It took some time for her faith in the boat to be restored.

Alexandre,If memory serves me
there are at least a dozen 25-30 mm bolts
holding the keel
on.I doubt it will ever
loosen.When heading back to
the
USA we hit a whale doing 10 ½ knots in the trade winds
with our big gennakerup. It stopped us in 5
feet. In fact one person was standing by the
saloon table
and wound up in the forward
berth.  As the whale swam past
our
starboard side I could see his size. Much bigger than
Kimberlite. I swear he looked me in the eye and
flipped me a
flipper.  I started the engine
to
scare off any other whales, and we
checked the bilges. When
the sea calmed down
a few days later I dove on the boat and
no
problem. I have hauled Kimberlite every year for 13 years
and still no problems.   Fair

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Keel
moving???    Alexandre:  I suppose this is a
matter of
degree of movement/cracking you
see.  Every Amel SM that I
have seen out of
the water has some degree of cracking in
the
bottom paint between the top of the cast iron keel and
the FRP (fiberglass) stub keel to which it is
bolted.  I
believe this is more a function
of differential thermal
expansion between
the two materials while on the hard rather
than relative movement.  The cast iron keel
(per Joel) is
attached to the fiberglass
stub keel with a structural
adhesive as well
as the multiple SS bolts.  I believe
significant movement between the two is
extremely unlikely
short of having hit a
reef at 8 knots, and even then I think
it
would not move things much.    I once asked Joel about
replacing the SS bolts and he told me the story
of a
customer who insisted on doing so
despite Amel's
reticence.  After
removing all the nuts from the keel
bolts,
everything Amel tried to do to get the cast iron keel
off failed.  Eventually the only way they were
able to
remove the cast iron keel was to cut
off the fiberglass stub
keel and glass in a
replacement, undoubtedly a less
satisfactory
solution than leaving the keel alone.
 
 Where I
have seen cracking in
the bottom paint at this joint, I have
ground down to bare metal and laid in 3M 5200
for fairing,
over which I used Interlux 2000
primer (multiple coats) and
my usual SeaHawk
Island 44 (forbidden in USA because it
works) anti-fouling.  Not the gospel, but my
two
cents worth and experience. (Joel
correct me if I have
mis-quoted).Sincerely,   Gary S. Silver

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Keel moving???

eric freedman
 

Alexandre,

There is a little separation between the keel and the hull. Just a few mm. I have had this on my other 3 boats as well. All of them were not Amels.

After seeing how the keel is bolted on in the factory I have no worries.

Impressive story Eric!
Show how strong the boats are...

When you haul out, do you also have the little crack around the keel?

Alexandre,If memory serves me
there are at least a dozen 25-30 mm bolts holding the keel
on.I doubt it will ever
loosen.When heading back to
the USA we hit a whale doing 10 ½ knots in the trade winds
with our big gennakerup. It stopped us in 5
feet. In fact one person was standing by the saloon table
and wound up in the forward berth.  As the whale swam past
our starboard side I could see his size. Much bigger than
Kimberlite. I swear he looked me in the eye and flipped me a
flipper.  I started the engine to
scare off any other whales, and we checked the bilges. When
the sea calmed down a few days later I dove on the boat and
no problem. I have hauled Kimberlite every year for 13 years
and still no problems.   Fair

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Keel
moving???    Alexandre:  I suppose this is a matter of
degree of movement/cracking you see.  Every Amel SM that I
have seen out of the water has some degree of cracking in
the bottom paint between the top of the cast iron keel and
the FRP (fiberglass) stub keel to which it is bolted.  I
believe this is more a function of differential thermal
expansion between the two materials while on the hard rather
than relative movement.  The cast iron keel (per Joel) is
attached to the fiberglass stub keel with a structural
adhesive as well as the multiple SS bolts.  I believe
significant movement between the two is extremely unlikely
short of having hit a reef at 8 knots, and even then I think
it would not move things much.    I once asked Joel about
replacing the SS bolts and he told me the story of a
customer who insisted on doing so despite Amel's
reticence.  After removing all the nuts from the keel
bolts, everything Amel tried to do to get the cast iron keel
off failed.  Eventually the only way they were able to
remove the cast iron keel was to cut off the fiberglass stub
keel and glass in a replacement, undoubtedly a less
satisfactory solution than leaving the keel alone.
 
 Where I
have seen cracking in the bottom paint at this joint, I have
ground down to bare metal and laid in 3M 5200 for fairing,
over which I used Interlux 2000 primer (multiple coats) and
my usual SeaHawk Island 44 (forbidden in USA because it
works) anti-fouling.  Not the gospel, but my two
cents worth and experience. (Joel correct me if I have
mis-quoted).Sincerely,   Gary S. Silver

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Part wanted for AMFA Reya 66b fresh water pump

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good afternoon Bill,

Sorry to read about your pump issue… I really hope you can fix it.

No, no, you didn’t ask me to buy you a kit. You always help me on the forum, so I wanted to give you a little thank you.
Unfortunately I was so busy with the repairs in Florida that I didn't send it...

I am slowing heading your way! Should be in Dominican Republic in Jan 2016 until March.

Alexandre

Alex,
I bought a rebuild kit from Maud at Amel
several months ago. The current problem I have is that the
short piece that connects the pressure switch to the larger
brass pipe has stripped the threads in the brass pipe and
the wall of the brass pipe is thin, making repair
improbable.
I am hoping that someone has one of these on a
pump they discarded.
Did I ask you to buy me a kit? I seem to
remember discussing it with you. If you bought it for me,
how much do I owe you? I can send you money via PayPal if
that works for you. I don't need the kit right away and
are you going back to the US? I can give you an address
there. Let me know. I am in Barcelona now and Martinique in
Jan 2016.
You can email me at bill"at"svbebe.com

Hello Bill,



I was able to purchase the whole pump from Amel Martinique a
few months ago.

I also bought you a rebuild kit, but haven't had the
chance to send it to you...

I am looking for an Amel owner that

has changed out his original AMFA Reya 66b fresh water
pump

and doesn't have any need for it.

The part I am looking for

is the brass pipe part that the accumulator tank, the

pressure gauge, and the pressure switch are attached

to. 

If anyone has this part,

email me at bill"at"svbebe.com. I will handle

logistics and costs.

Best,

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Part wanted for AMFA Reya 66b fresh water pump

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Alex,

I bought a rebuild kit from Maud at Amel several months ago. The current problem I have is that the short piece that connects the pressure switch to the larger brass pipe has stripped the threads in the brass pipe and the wall of the brass pipe is thin, making repair improbable.

I am hoping that someone has one of these on a pump they discarded.

Did I ask you to buy me a kit? I seem to remember discussing it with you. If you bought it for me, how much do I owe you? I can send you money via PayPal if that works for you. I don't need the kit right away and are you going back to the US? I can give you an address there. Let me know. I am in Barcelona now and Martinique in Jan 2016.

You can email me at bill"at"svbebe.com

I am looking for an Amel owner that
has changed out his original AMFA Reya 66b fresh water pump
and doesn't have any need for it.
The part I am looking for
is the brass pipe part that the accumulator tank, the
pressure gauge, and the pressure switch are attached
to. 
If anyone has this part,

Hello Bill,

I was able to purchase the whole pump from Amel Martinique a few months ago.
I also bought you a rebuild kit, but haven't had the chance to send it to you...

Sincerely, Alexandre

Part wanted for AMFA Reya 66b fresh water pump

yahoogroups@...
 

I am looking for an Amel owner that has changed out his original AMFA Reya 66b fresh water pump and doesn't have any need for it.


The part I am looking for is the brass pipe part that the accumulator tank, the pressure gauge, and the pressure switch are attached to. 


If anyone has this part, email me at bill"at"svbebe.com. I will handle logistics and costs.


Best,


Bill

Has anyone information on the original mounts, as to their static load rating. The new Mitsteun mounts rating of 60kg per mount while just within the treshold, they do have to contend with having to take the addition loading, of say in my case 110kg, when I step down to do the daily checks. With the odd exception very few boats have the access ours do, with the addition of a step down plate on top of the engine. This was one of my concerns with the mitsteun mount being so close to the max static load rating.

Gary, I have always had some vibration, but never knew if it was normal or not. When the boat rolls to port I get a pronounced vibration , once again I had no way to know if it was normal. But recently I was on a newer SM with a Yanmar and it had far less vibration , virtually none, so I figure its probably time for new mounts. Are you in Annapolis ? I would like to drive down , after you jack up your engine and are ready to install your new mounts ,if our schedules permitted. Thanks, Pat

The timing on this subject could not be better. I will be setting up to replace our mounts this week. I have a good yard here in case I get in over my head but it sounds very do-able. Any job that requires new tools is always good. :)

I will for sure post if the mounts appear not to be what have been discussed.  

I am curious what symptoms were present which led to deciding on new mounts though. Adagio just has a rattle, only at idle, which presents mostly through the engine cover. Thinking the mounts and/or coupler bushings are the likely first choice for a fix. 

Thanks again to the group members for the amazing info.
