Thanks guys. Here's another reason to choose AMEL. I go down to the cellar to work. Hello. Enio

On Cream Puff (you do not state your Amel type or hull number), the float switch is remove by disconnecting the power supply and pulling the large tube aft out of the clip-in bracket. It is very easy to remove. I take it out when cleaning the bilge.

 

BeBe has some awesome instructions for replacing the ground strap: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/amelyachtowners/search/photos?query=ground#zax/albums_138287824

 

 

Best regards,

good morning, ameliens. I have the need to change the ground strap and ask who did it, how do I remove the bildge float switch assembly from the well???? Tanks


Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Santorin ground strap

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

I will answer you as to how it is done on a Super Maramu 2000. Also, you should review the photos at: 

Removing the bilge sump float switch assembly, cleaning the bilge and hoses:
  1. Unplug the two wires going to the float switch and tape the terminals so that they do not short.
  2. The float tube assembly is held in place by gravity (it rests on the bottom of the sump) and by a gray plastic clip that is about 40(+/-)cm from the top of the tube. 
  3. Pull the tube assembly toward you and the gray plastic clip will enlarge and free itself from the tube assembly.
  4. Have an empty bucket available and pull the tube upward placing the bucket under the bottom. The bucket will catch bilge water that you do not want getting on other things in the engine room.
  5. Take the float tube assembly on deck and clean it thoroughly.
  6. You probably will want to remove the gray plastic clip if you are going to be cleaning the sump. It is secured with one screw. Carefully remove the screw preventing any of the parts or screw from falling into the sump. If it is not obvious, mark where the screw was secured so that you can locate that spot during re-assembly.
  7. Using the hand bilge pump, pump as much as possible out of the sump.
  8. Pull the automatic pump hose out of the bilge and place the end of the hose in the bucket. If it is not too dirty, you can clean it in the engine room, but you may have to disconnect the hose at the pump and clean it on deck. Also inspect the strainer and the one-way "Joker" valve inside the strainer. The one-way "Joker" valve has a life of about 5 years and the hose begins to harden in 5 years. If it has been 5 years since these were new, plan on replacing them. If you replace the hose, buy clear reinforced hose so that you can see the water inside the hose. To test the one-way "Joker" valve, with the hose on deck, elevate the pump connection end of the hose and fill the hose with water...if the water leaks more than a few drops, the one-way "Joker" valve needs to be replaced.
  9. Repeat 7 above for the manual pump hose, but there is no strainer or one-way "Joker" valve on it.
  10. Using a wet/dry vacuum, vacuum the remainder of water and trash from the sump.
  11. The bilge sump may need cleaning. Use a good cleaner, brush and possibly a pressure washer. Rinse it well and you will need the wet/dry vacuum to get everything out again
  12. The nut holding the ground strap is 30mm. you will need several extensions of about 1 meter total.
  13. Refer to the photos above.
  14. reverse the order above to reassemble. 
Hope this helps.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Slipping windlass

Pat,

You might want to check the chain locker to see if the chain is piled up and preventing the chain from going  in. You may have installed new 3/8” chain and it is not “spread around”, especially the first 100’.

Pat,

That sometimes happens to me . I just assumed it was too much stress on the chain and a clutch inside the windlass is slipping. It seems to happen more frequently as Kimberlite 1s now 12 years old. If someone else has am answer I would love to hear it.

Eric, The key that turns the inside cone looked normal. The key inside the windlass had a little play in it as though the groove was slightly enlarged. I put a shim in it , a couple of years ago, but need to replace the shaft  sometime soon. But  the gypsy is turning, it just when there is a heavy load on it , it slips. So that does not sound like a prob lem with a key to me.  Could a key slip out and then reengage ?  Thanks ,Pat

I just put on a new gypsy for my new 3/8 chain , and hauling it on the boat the gypsy slipped , I had the nut as tight as possible , even hit it with a rubber mallet to snug it down. When a windlass slips , what needs to be replaced , the bronze outer cone that you snug down , or the inner cone or both? I do not want to replace both if not necessary , I cannot figure how they would even wear down unless they slipped , and why would anyone run the windlass while it is slipping. Is there a dressing that can be applied to increase friction ?

On my Sharki, the Rocna fits quite snugly against my CQR.  I keep it tensioned so that it doesn't bang around. My metal smith is making a skid plate with hold downs to keep the anchors locked down while at sea.

Derick,

I asked that exact question among others to SAV today.

To my surprise the answer that I received the second time I asked was exactly opposite of the response I got the first time just a day ago. I am certainly not criticizing anyone, because anyone can make a mistake, anytime.

Here is what I think (key word,  think):

The bronze/stainless wear bushing that Bob Rossi received in March 2014 is either an abberation, a prototype, or something that is old. My last email to SAV informed me that the one Rossi received was the "old bushing." Here is the quote:

"" Sorry, my mistake, It is the otherwise. I hadn’t understood your question’s meaning.

On picture you sent, bushing is in steel chrome, it is the old bushing.

Today, it is a new supplier, we have the same one but in bronze. That’s the only difference.

For Amel 64, it is a bronze bushing too but in bigger size.

I hope my explanation are clearer.

Don’t hesitate questioning.

Regards
Emilie BALLION""

So, I am not 100% sure what is going on.

I will wait for some other people smarter than me to give assurances as to why Bob Rossi received a wear bushing from Amel made of bronze and stainless.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Marina in Fort Lauderdale?

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good afternoon Jeffrey,

I am actually on the waiting list for Royal Palm Yacht Basin
Price is reasonable about $1300/month but no pool nor pump out.
So I hope to see you there in November and if possible have a tour of your Amel 54 !!!

Kaj, Bahia Mar at $4290/month is too expensive for me, but looks nice.

Stephanie, I would prefer Fort Lauderdale so that the repairs and maintenance can be done by the person recommended by Joel. But might go to visit later.

Stacey, Harbour Towne Marina wants $2800/month, not exactly what I had in mind. Playboy Marine Center is where the repair/maintenance will be done, but not a marina.

Mark, Pier 66 wants $4500/month, Las Olas Marina wants $3200/month.
New River Downtown Docks was $2140/month + $300/month electricity and No washer/dryer, no shower, no WC... so won't go there either.

May be I am out of touch with reality concerning prices, I didn't know most Fort Lauderdale would be so expensive...
wish my insurance had not taken 6 weeks to make a move as I would have gone a long time ago...

So thank you every body for your replies... Hopefuly I will meet Jeffrey in November

Sincerely, Alexandre

Alexandre,
I will be staying at the
Royal Palm Yacht Basin, which is a short. run down the Dania
cut-off canal. I was there 2+months last year. Only a few
miles from port everglades, no bridges to go under, haul out
facilities right there if needed. Not a yacht club by any
means, but certainly not a dump.
There were
3 Amels there when I was there last year.
I'll be bringing Spirit down there for a
month in November.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Propshaft wearing ring

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Derick,

I asked that exact question among others to SAV today.

To my surprise the answer that I received the second time I asked was exactly opposite of the response I got the first time just a day ago. I am certainly not criticizing anyone, because anyone can make a mistake, anytime.

Here is what I think (key word,  think):

The bronze/stainless wear bushing that Bob Rossi received in March 2014 is either an abberation, a prototype, or something that is old. My last email to SAV informed me that the one Rossi received was the "old bushing." Here is the quote:

"" Sorry, my mistake, It is the otherwise. I hadn’t understood your question’s meaning.

On picture you sent, bushing is in steel chrome, it is the old bushing.

Today, it is a new supplier, we have the same one but in bronze. That’s the only difference.

For Amel 64, it is a bronze bushing too but in bigger size.

I hope my explanation are clearer.

Don’t hesitate questioning.

Regards
Emilie BALLION""

So, I am not 100% sure what is going on.

I will wait for some other people smarter than me to give assurances as to why Bob Rossi received a wear bushing from Amel made of bronze and stainless.

Bill,

 

Question: Do you (or anyone else) know whether the old wear-out bearings and their seals can be "mix and matched" with the new wear-out bearing and seals, or are they incompatable in size?
