Colin,

The 10 Jerry Cans in the "liferaft locker" was me, BeBe #387. I posted photos at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/amelyachtowners/photos/album/855376336/pic/list?mode=tn&order=ordinal&start=1&dir=asc

Be sure to read the comments under each photo.

BTW, we are 3/4ths of the way around the world, westward bound starting in the Caribbean...we have yet to need the extra fuel, but it has been reassuring that it is there.

Your comments are comforting and, given the other comments so far, I suspect that we will be very content with the 75 hp as is.
Whilst in touch with you I might add that you have added a wealth of useful into into the AMEL site so thanks for this as I have been reading much of it. With our upcoming Atlantic trip I am going to go back to the string of articles to which you added - in particular the one regarding 10 extra fuel containers in the life raft hatch - and ask for someone to post some pictures of how this looks when stacked in. A picture would really help me as I am getting someone to purchase these in Gran Canaria and I am currently in Sydney. A pic would be far better than my poor Spanish...

Hi
On board Akwaaba, our Santorin Sloop we found the quality not quantity was as important.
So we have;
 1 a large baja filter through which the fuel is cleaned as it flows to the fuel tank; 
and
 2 a good fuel filter system on the boat.
[ Ours is a 4m system installed in Australia]

see http://www.myboatsgear.com/newsletter/200767.asp

 Our extra fuel was stored in the adapted liferaft locker. The cans are large yellow ones about 20 litres or 5 US gals .  They are treated with biocide when filled. Remember in some parts of the world you have to carry the full fuel cans some distance to resupply the boat.
Hope this helps

Chris Smither....[..himself is fitting the awning on Akwaaba at present.]

You might look into this when you get to the Caribbean. Also we found that a
1400 or 1500 Gennaker was very good for trade winds. When we crossed we had
it up one time for 7 days straight and we averaged 10.5 knots. The Gennaker
was 1 ½ Oz material.

I believe Ian on PenAzen has one also. With a ATN sleeve it is very easy to

I believe the 75 hp will be fine. You can also run it at a higher rpm and

Colin,

Our Maramu was repowered with the same engine you have. It's an excellent
engine and while your SM is a bit heavier than our boat, I suspect you
will
find it quite adequate.

One recommendation I have is to read the section in the manual that deals
with pre-shut down and extended low RPM operations. There is a procedure
where you put the engine in neutral and advance the power to maximum then
retard to idle a series of 5 times. This is designed to burn the carbon
deposits off the turbo presumably. This should be done 5 minutes prior to
shutdown and every 2 hours while running at low rpm which I've taken to
mean
as a power setting in which the turbo is not being used.

Sounds like Island Pearl was a great find. Congratulations and enjoy your
upcoming voyage.

systems
and motors being run monthly and serviced directly by Yanmar & Amel rep
this
one was too good to pass up for the price. Naturally I should expect some
problems but todate none have surfaced...

My concern was that the 75HP (with auto-prop) would be underpowered for
such a large boat and therefore I am keen to hear from other members who
have the 75HP Yanmar (there were quite a few built in the 2000 - 2003
period) in terms of how well this set up works for you, normal cruising
revs
and speed and what fuel consumption is like and if these engines have

Hi

Not really the topic, but almost.

On our blog I have a page (in swedish but I think you can figure it out)
where I have a list over all (I belive) Amel models with lenght,
manufacturing years, how many produced and a picture. I do miss a lot of
pictures, so if you have a picture that I don't have, or a better one, I
would be very glad to have a copy to complete the list. Also if somethings
is wrong, please let me know.

Hi group



I have been searching the Internet for information about elder Amel models.



I wonder how many different models of the Mango/Maramu that has been made, I
am thinking of size of the boat and interior/accommodation.

Anyone who might help with a link/info?

Re: [Amel] Earlier models of the Mango/Maramu - Pictures

Jean Boucharlat
 

Hello Ann-Sophie,



On your blog you may want to add the most recent “Amel 55” exhibited for the
first time at the Cannes and La Rochelle boat shows this Autumn.

Specifications are :

Overall length: 17,30 m

Hull length: 16,74

Max. Width: 4,99

Width at waterline: 4,14

Draught: 2,20

Light displacement: 19,80 t.

Loaded displacement: 23,40 t.

Incidentally you are the owner (hopefully happy) of my former SM “Satchmi”.
Hope she won’t catch a cold up there in the cold during the Swedish Winter.



All the best,



Jean Boucharlat

143, rue de Créqui

69006 Lyon

Hi

Not really the topic, but almost.

On our blog I have a page (in swedish but I think you can figure it out)
where I have a list over all (I belive) Amel models with lenght,
manufacturing years, how many produced and a picture. I do miss a lot of
pictures, so if you have a picture that I don't have, or a better one, I
would be very glad to have a copy to complete the list. Also if somethings
is wrong, please let me know.

Here is the URL to the page

Hi group



I have been searching the Internet for information about elder Amel models.



I wonder how many different models of the Mango/Maramu that has been made, I
am thinking of size of the boat and interior/accommodation.

Anyone who might help with a link/info?

ARC

Judy and Bill aboard SV BeBe <yahoogroups@...>
 

We have been keeping tabs with a fellow Amel owner and his yacht Lone Star (Amel 54) in the current ARC.

Here is a recent log entry by one of the crew:
The day started off overcast and cloudy but with steady winds of 18 to 22 knots. This is giving us good boat speed. Our SOG's are between 9 and 10 knots this morning. The skies have cleared and we are still doing well. We have a double head sail rig set up with poles port and starboard. Since we are an Amel 54 we have to call this rig an Amel head-sail with a ballooner. It is really a great set up for our downwind sail.

I uploaded a screen shot of 2 Class "A" Cruising Yachts: Lone Star - Amel 54 in 4th place and Sophistikate - Oyster 575 in 8th place. You can link to it here: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/amelyachtowners/photos/album/1160590103/pic/602479346/view?picmode=large&mode=tn&order=ordinal&start=1&dir=asc

I am pulling for Lone Star to BTHO of Shophistikate and I am hoping that this trend continues.

I will let someone else comment on Shophistikate's strategy to find the wind while Lone Star is using the Amel double pole system.

Colin - ex SV Island Pearl
 

Thanks Eric
Your comments are comforting and, given the other comments so far, I suspect that we will be very content with the 75 hp as is.
Whilst in touch with you I might add that you have added a wealth of useful into into the AMEL site so thanks for this as I have been reading much of it. With our upcoming Atlantic trip I am going to go back to the string of articles to which you added - in particular the one regarding 10 extra fuel containers in the life raft hatch - and ask for someone to post some pictures of how this looks when stacked in. A picture would really help me as I am getting someone to purchase these in Gran Canaria and I am currently in Sydney. A pic would be far better than my poor Spanish...
Cheers, Colin

Colin,

Having both the non turbo Yanmar about 55 Hp and the Turbo Intercooled
Yanmar 100 hp on different boats, I believe you can add the intercooler t to
your Yanmar to gain the additional HP if you wish. It doesn't look like a
big job, but I believe the parts might be pricey.

We very rarely use all 100 Hp and I think it is just a knee jerk reaction to
put the petal to the metal when you need it.

I believe the 75 hp will be fine. You can also run it at a higher rpm and
use the same amount of fuel as the 100 hp at a lower RPM.

At 2200 rpm the 75 hp uses 1.14 GPH while the 100 HP uses 1.43 GPH

Colin,

Our Maramu was repowered with the same engine you have. It's an excellent
engine and while your SM is a bit heavier than our boat, I suspect you will
find it quite adequate.

One recommendation I have is to read the section in the manual that deals
with pre-shut down and extended low RPM operations. There is a procedure
where you put the engine in neutral and advance the power to maximum then
retard to idle a series of 5 times. This is designed to burn the carbon
deposits off the turbo presumably. This should be done 5 minutes prior to
shutdown and every 2 hours while running at low rpm which I've taken to mean
as a power setting in which the turbo is not being used.

Sounds like Island Pearl was a great find. Congratulations and enjoy your
upcoming voyage.

one was too good to pass up for the price. Naturally I should expect some

My concern was that the 75HP (with auto-prop) would be underpowered for
such a large boat and therefore I am keen to hear from other members who
have the 75HP Yanmar (there were quite a few built in the 2000 - 2003
period) in terms of how well this set up works for you, normal cruising revs
and speed and what fuel consumption is like and if these engines have served

Re: [Amel] New file uploaded to amelyachtowners

Hi,

I received this from Amel.

It appears that the hydraulic pressure pushes the disk with the plunger on
it back into the cylinder, thus causing the brake pads to open.

The internal spring in the cylinder pushes the plate and pin into the brake
assembly causing it to close. I guess I have to turn the bolt in to the
cylinder to close the jaws. If this does not work, I think the seals are
leaking and I need to have them replaced.

Thanks Ian & Judy
It was because of Amel's move from the 80hp Volvo to the 100hp Yanmar then
back to the 75hp Yanmar that I was concerned. Very interested indeed to
hear that the 78hp Volvo was actually governed down to 60hp.

Hi Colin, Welcome to the Amel club. I can't comment on the Yanmar.I have a
Volvo 78 hp , governed DOWN to 60 hp by Amel--this was the standard engine
fitted to the SM before the larger Volvo and then the Yanmar. We have over
4,000 hours in 11 years, 47,000 + miles in all conditions( including motor
sailing in the Beagle channel directly into a headwind of 55knots) and we
have not yet suffered from a lack of power. 100HP is great, but I can't

[Amel] Re: Hydraulic shaft brake

amelliahona <no_reply@...>
 

Eric:

My problem was the brake not closing, same as yours. The actuator closes via spring pressure to prevent the shaft from turning when the engine is off. When the engine is running and the transmission is engaged, hydraulic pressure operates against the spring pressure to open the jaws of the brake. I do not know what the pressure has to be, but it is a balance between spring pressure and hydraulic pressure.

Subject: [Amel] Re: Hydraulic shaft brake





Eric: When my boat was one month old, (SM # 335, 2001) I noticed that my
hydraulic shaft brake was not actuating properly. Amel, sent a team to the
Canary Islands to effect repairs under warranty. What they found was that
the transmission was not putting out the specified amount of hydraulic
pressure to actuate the brake actuator. The repair required replacement of
the transmission, all done very efficiently by Amel at not cost to me. I
don't know what the specs are for the pressure or anything else beyond this
but perhaps you could begin trouble shooting by measuring the hydraulic
actuating pressure by "T" ing a pressure gauge into the hydraulic line. Of
course firstly, verify that the transmission has the proper fluid level.
Another thing you might try, to verify that the hydraulic piston is working
normally, would be to remove it, and actuate it with regulated compressed
shop air so that you could verify at what pressure it actuates etc.

Just a couple of thoughts.

I am having trouble with the hydraulic shaft brake on my 100 hp yanmar.
The brake shoes do not close completely and the shaft continues to spin. .
To temporarily repair this I placed a block of wood between the hydraulic
actuator and the engine mount frame and that applied enough pressure to
close the brake shoes. The brake shoes do not appear worn. I also do not
know which way to turn the bolt on the actuator to tighten the brake shoe
clearance.
Any suggestions?
