Hi Scott, we are currently covered under the Jackline policy (Gowie Group) go to jackline@....

We also have a friend who is an agent that has access to several other underwriters and helped us with a good review of our current policy as well as here offerings.  She did have another good option but recommended we were better of staying with our current policy. But email her at laura@... 

Best regards, Daniel and Lori Carlson on sv BeBe, SM#387

Hi all,

We are leaving Panama soon and due to Covid-19 are abandoning our plans for the South Pacific this year. In the next week, our intent is to sail directly to Hawaii and possibly spend the hurricane season in Alaska before heading back to the US West Coast.

Our current insurance does not cover US waters so I need to quickly find a policy that will cover us. We will mostly double hand and of course Hawaii-Alaska-US West Coast involves some offshore passages. We've got 16,000 nm on Tengah already, so reasonably experienced. 

Any suggestions for US insurance? FYI Tengah is US documented and I'm American. I've reached out to a few brokers but would like some tips from those of you who spend all of you time in the US. Thanks.

Scott, Sorry that you had to cancel on the S.P. ,a great disappointment,I am sure.This virus is changing everyone's plans around the world . I wish I could suggest an insurance co. ,however 10 minutes ago I got a cancellation notice from Pantaenius effective June 1. , so I am now in the same boat ,no insurance very soon. Diane and I enjoyed meeting you guys in Annapolis, and have been watching your vlog. 
Good Luck ,

Re: B&G H3000 & B&G H5000 Amel 54 and Amel 55

My Amel 54 (#44) came with the sonic speed sensor hooked up to a B&G 2000. It seemed to work OK.
I then replaced the B&G 2000 with the new 5000 unit. The real advantage to all of this was the ability to tie into my NMEA 2000 bus and see STW on all my displays.

I also replaced the original depth (only) transducer with a new airmar/Maretron unit so that I could read the sea temperature and add paddlewheel functionality. That required enlarging the hole and some reconstructive surgery - not a big deal really.

I then contacted B&G to try to understand how I could also use the sonic speed sensors, and they gave me a wiring schematic. Unfortunately, I have never been able to make it work with the B&G 5000. I am not sure if the sensors failed somewhere during the upgrade, or if the schematics are not correct, as it didn't seem to match my installation.

I finally gave up, using now only the paddlewheel, which is a mixed blessing, as any growth on the paddlewheel kills the unit until you clean it - not simple in the water, or on land for that matter.
Has anyone been successful in making the sonic speed work with the new B&G 5000?

Thanks,
Jamie

All,

At the request of many members of our group, I have added a WORLD TOUR LISTING to the main page of our group: AmelYachtOwnersGroup.com. I inserted "SM 387 BeBe 2017 Bill & Judy Rouse" to show you what could be listed. In my case, I list the Amel model, SM, the hull number, 387, the year completed, 2017, and our names, Bill & Judy Rouse. Some of you may want to list your Amel, but not your name...that's OK, but please include the Amel model and hull number.

I would love to see this section with a hundred Amels, or more.

If you and/or your Amel has completed a World Tour and want your Amel listed, please send an email to  main+owner@AmelYachtOwners.groups.io 
(main+owner"at"AmelYachtOwners.groups.iowith what you would like posted for your Amel. This is what you will see on the main page:

Re: Beam IV : A55 # 9 rudder gland access

Hello Joerg , Bill & Paul,

We were able to tighten the rudder gland .

It was necessary to remove the quadrant.

It took a while to release all the connections but it was straightforward.

Of course the proof of the pudding will be the next transit but that may be a while .. 

Thank you all for your advice was really helpful.

Hi Stuart, on my boat you can turn the large nut with the Amel spanner without removing the quadrant.  The plate on my boat (circled in red) is just to lock the nut in place - it presses against one of the six flat sides of the large nut.  So to turn the nut, you have to remove that plate and reinstall it when you have turned the nut (by whole numbers of 1/6th of a turn) but you don't have to remove anything else.  But Bill is right - my boat has hydraulic steering so maybe on your boat you have to remove the quadrant.  I just don't know.  Sorry.  Good luck!

Re: B&G H3000 & B&G H5000 Amel 54 and Amel 55

Airmar makes sonic speed sensors and one is installed on my A55, most recently replaced in 2018.  I would ask them what the right sensor is - they make sensors that work via NMEA 2000, for example.  

Let me also point out that my A55 came with two speed sensors standard.  One is the sonic speed, installed forward (just behind the front bunk) just off center to port.  The other is a paddlewheel triple sensor which also acts as depth and temperature sensor.  It is installed just off center on starboard a bit further aft.  When my sonic speed sensor was defective a couple of years back, Pochon told me as an interim fix to change the input for boat speed to the triple sensor (it's an Airmar DST 200 on my boat).  This is one of the B&G system settings - easy to do on any one of the displays.  I suspect other A55s also have these two sensors - I hope this helps.

Re: B&G H3000 & B&G H5000 Amel 54 and Amel 55

 

Paul,

As recently as 4 months ago a member of this group purchased new Sonic Speed sensors. I believe what happened is that B&G stopped producing them about 5 or 6 years ago, then somehow, a supply hit the market about 2 years ago. There still may be some available.

There is not a universal answer to your question, other than to say that you will need to either replace the sonic speed sensors (if you can find them) or replace the sonic speed sensors with another source of SOW. The H3000 and H5000 will take one type of sensor and the H2000 a different type. Most sensors available are made by Airmar. I would check with a B&G rep or A+T for compatibility, but it is safe to say that if you want SOW rather than SOG reported to the processor, you will likely need to drill another hole in your hull. You may wind up chasing the idea that a multi-sensor including Depth and SOW will eliminate another hole. This can be true, depending on your processor, but in every case, that I have seen it requires enlarging the current Depth sensor hole to 51mm.

In my opinion, you do not need SOW when you can substitute SOG. In fact, SOG is what really counts in determining what gets you there and when. One last comment: I sailed most of the world with SOG substituted for SOW. I did this because I felt that SOG was preferential to another hole drilled in the hull. In my case with the H2000, I had to buy a black box from A+T to accomplish this. 

I am fairly sure of accuracy of what I have written above, but like many things, what is available changes. Be sure to do your own research.

As I understand, B&G no longer support the Sonic Speed, and neither do A+T Instruments. This being the case, is there a recommended alternative system? I did hear of a combined forward looking sonar / speed, but have no further info. I’ve been using SOG in the Hydra for a couple of years now, but its nice to have the correct info, e.g. to know how much current there is when at anchor before jumping in!

Amel 54 and Amel 55 owners with B&G H3000 or H5000:

Did you know that if your B&G Sonic Speed fails, there is a user-programmable setting in the H3000 & H5000 processor to use SOG from your GPS instead of SOW from your Sonic Speed Sensors and Processor? And, GPS speed is already wired to the B&G processor.

This will mean that Boat Speed will display on all instruments as SOG. If a current exists, True Wind Angle and True Wind Speed will be slightly off, but since you are not a racer, this minor variance should not bother you.

B&G H2000 and earlier models do not have this feature.
