Which oil

JP Mans <jp-gaill@...>
 

Hi all
I am a new maramu owner and I'd like some advice :
The boat is equiped with a well maintained Perkins 4158 (3400h).
On the boat there are some oil-filters, impellers and diesel-filters in reserve that I intend to change. I need to change also the oil, so which oil do you recomand me ? The boat is actually in Tunesia and I'll sail to Greece this summer.
Thanks for advices
Jean-Paul

53 hp is not enough on a SM minimum is 75hp !!!
If you really want 53 hp you MUST change the the gear ration or the
propeller seize

Hi all,!
Yanmar seems to be the best reviewed. I have to choose between the
53hp naturally aspirated or the 75hp turbo. I do not want the extra
maintenance of the Turbo but also need to make sure not to under
power. Your experienced opinions are allways appreciated.

This document is not at all a direct answer to your question but a valuable
information on electric power management

http://yourbittorrent.com/go/4/tomtom%20navigator%206%20france%20majors%20ro
ad%20europe%20v6%2050

Also you should consider the LiFePo batteries of Mastervolt in your study:
lightweight and small size, very high charging speed, high cost but rather
long life.

You should look at a diesel genset which is optimised not only at full
charge ie variable speed and intelligent inverter. I hope it exists.

Powerfull electric engines seems not to be the problem.

But first thing is to define whether you want to have available 60 to 75HP
in continuous service or only for three hours.

We repowered our Maramu JAZZ (hull # 144) with the 75hp Yanmar 4JH4-TE and are pleased with the results. You can see photos on this site in an album named, "s/v Jazz" which documents our rebuild of this Katrina vessel.

Re: [Amel] New Motor

Anne and John Hollamby <annejohnholl@...>
 

Hi Barb, The Autoprop is good but not so positive when engaged as the Maxprop. I had the latter on my last boat and had no quibbles. The snag with the Autoprop is that even minor fouling upsets the self pitching and more fouling will stop it from going into anything except high pitch which restricts the engine speed and causes smoky exhaust. My worst lesson was after leaving the boat in the water all winter when severe fouling restricted my boat speed to two Knots on the way to the yard for haul out. It is easy to decide whether the prop has fouling because it becomes impossible to get the engine speed up to maximum. I used to have to dive and clean the prop about twice a season until I found Jotron anti fouling for it. I t was great but of course it is not imported into Malta anymore. Going from ahead to astern without a pause with a Maxprop would put a severe strain on the drive system. I really wonder whether the bigger engine would drive the boat that much faster against tides ,foul weather etc. perhaps others can comment? We wish that we were back Down Under!

Thanks Anne and John for your comments. We are upgrading from tne Perkins M80T and Paul was concerned that round top end of Australia due to tides and current the 75 might not be powerful enough.
The main concern right now being the C drive ratio.
The mechanic installing recommends this Gori prop - though the responsibility comes back to our choice of size and pitch - apparently with all the spec info the size and pitch is recommended by manufacturer of prop but one only gets the one go at it - so to speak.

Have a great day all.

Hello Barb,
I managed to recover the earlier posts with a little difficulty as you had changed the subject to New Yanmar thus foiling the search facility.
I wish you luck with the 110HP even though Kent Robertson broke a drive shaft after upgrading to that size which may have been a contributory cause.
I also note that his conversion did not include the drive brake. When I ordered my SM2K for delivery in January 2001 I paid extra to get the 75 HP Yanmar because I knew that the Volvo then standard was being phased out and if I remember correctly either the existing or new Volvo had a belt driven camshaft with all the risks that involved. My Yanmar also came with an hydraulic clutch hence the brake perhaps.
I was caught in a severe squall with wind speeds exceeding 55 knots whilst at anchor but was able to motor out of the anchorage straight into the head wind with no difficulties apart from 50 yards visibility using less than full power from my 75hp engine. I wish you well with the 110HP version.

Re: Wanted a SM

oo7.larshansen <no_reply@...>
 

Thank you all for the all information, links and recommendations I have received.

I selected the SM as my next ship due all the good things I have read about Amel. My wife and me are going to sail the Mediterranean at first, then hopefully the pacific. We are not young people any more, so we need a boat that is easy to handle for two people.

Yes it is my experience too that there is a difference between the European and the American marked, and as an European it is much easier for me to handle paperworks and authorities. Therefore I prefer to make a deal within Europa.

I am very happy for all your responses, it is my impression that you all "love" your boats and REALLY care for them. That is a good sign in my humble opinion.

Regards and happy sailing

Hey again, Barb,
The MaxProp can be adjusted within a fairly large range.  One model can be done while the boat is in the water, and the other model requires the boat to be hauled out to adjust.  I understand that the AutoProp can be adjusted by the manufacturer if it's a later model.  My old Volvo wouldn't get up to adequate rpm under load and after much expense I decided that the prop that came from Amel when the boat was new was overpitched for the 78hp.  The AutoProp folks said that the prop number on my prop coincided with their recommendations for the SM with 100HP Yanmar.  Amel said that they used the same prop for either 78 HP Volvo or 100HP Yanmar.  My only recommendation would be to rely on the maker of the prop to determine what pitch and diameter to buy.  The MaxProp does offer the option of being able to personally adjust the pitch significantly if you don't guess exactly right.  When I bought the new Yanmar, I was able to adjust my Maxprop enough

Importance: High

Hello Mr Hansen,

I just beg your pardon because my english is not very good (french people
are used to that I guess ;-)).

I'am no amelowner yet, but I was one (I owned a Kirk #1 from 1970 and was
forced to sale this wonderful boat in 1995 because of a divorce!). This boat
was really like gold. The age of an Amel boat is not the same age as for a
serial "plastic boat" like Bavaria or some other like that. An Amel of 10-20
years sit not old (so far it would be good maintained!)it is still young,
strong and (quite) perfect!!!

The first question you have to answer is: what kind of sailing I want to
make.
The budget you mentionned (180-230.000 EUR, inkl. VAT) is not enough for a
SM in good condition.

If your are searching in Europe or France, I would recommand Michel
Charpentier too.
And when you want to have a look in the States, Joel Potter is THE man of
your choice.

To buy a boat too cheap is like to give a little bit money at first and
realize after the buying that you have to invest a lot of more money to have
what you wanted to have.

Like a very well knowed sentence in my professional branch (translating and
interpreting!) "when you give peanuts, you'll have monkey"...

I wish you luck and success in your quest. An Amel boat is perhaps not like
gold, but it is really a treasure.

Allways good winds and like we said in Germany "allways six inches water
below the keel"

I have been looking for a Amel Super Maramu for a long time. To be honest,
most of the yacht dealers think that a 10-20 old boat is the same as pure
gold. If you really want to sell a SM, and it is not absolutely worn out or
damaged, then I am seriously interested. I prefer to make a deal with a man
who has sailed his ship for a long time, and knows what is good about it,
and of course what needs fixing.

I think that a well cared SM from 1994-1998 should cost about 180-230.000
Euro including VAT which is the amount that I am prepared to pay.

Subject: [Amel] Re: Perkins Prima M50 Engine label


 
I have Santorin #86 1993 with the Perkins M50. The label should be between the base of the oil filler tube and the front 2 injector sites on the engine. It is silver and faces straight up. My engine is # BA 30146 U 64 54 05 W.

I have a Santorin#84 and I cannot find the right label on the engine Perkins Prima M50, because the string in the papers is wrong and the label seems to be disappeared. Can anybody send me a photograph of the proper label on such engine? It should be something like BA#####U######W (the last character could be any, it depends on the year). I do not know if the string is engraved on the engine base or if there should be a label glued/fasten with rivets. Thanks anybody for this help
