Re: Twisted chain - Amel 54

Hi

In 5 years I never had twisted chain issues, with 80m galvanised chain, anchoring about 120 times a year in the past 3 years.

I personally installed a spade anchor, with a bow shackle to 3 links of chain, then a kong swivel, then my 80m chain.  (The 3 links of chain avoid the swivel ever having a lateral load which would exceed its capabilities.)  

Regarding the stainless steel jumping on the gypsy, I believe stainless steel stretches or elongates and some links don’t fit so well on the gypsy any more.

Re: A54 fridge circulation pump

Oliver Henrichsen, SV Vela Nautica
 

Hello,

Yes I think my setup its a way to get rid of all the problems this old system had.

Yes I carry these parts double as spares because I run a prototype. In total its so much cheaper than one original pump so its no problem to carry spares. And the parts used are much smaller and lighter, while much more powerfull, than the original pumps.

The VESC speed controller is developed by Mr Vedder, a clever swedish, and used in many DIY and comercial scooters, scateboards, eSurfboards with much higher power demands than our little pump. So its a prooven system.

My fridge/freezer controller is part of the ship Computer system and connected to NMEA2K bus. The original thermostats are no more used. Instead precise electronic thermometers are in both devices. The controller checks on these thermometers and decides about cooling needs. If one unit is above set threshold the controller looks also for the other and if ever possible colls both at the same time. This will further reduce working time of the raw water pump.

The controller sends serial commands to the VESC. but the VESC is very versatile so its also possible to regulate it in a simple way

Oliver,

If possible, I'd love to see photos of this setup. It sounds like a brilliant solution.

Also, could you tell us more about the intelligent controller that tries to "bundle" when the compressors for your two fridges run?

Re: SM Bow thruster wiring diagram?

Eamonn Washington
 

Hi Mark

no, your box looks neater that my older box.  I contacted Amel but  they do not have  the 20cm jack-screws anymore.

Then we put the wires back the original way, and physically reinstalled the up/down motor upside down and all was OK!  Problem solved.

Re: SM deck maintenance-Polytrol_ORIGINAL RAL COLOR for thin strips

Giovanni TESTA
 

Yes is still brown, but the pigment went partially away, so I can see the under layer as the deck color, after 11  years sailing around the sun/UV world.
So I m planning to re paint it with original RAL dark brown code I dont know.

Hi Peter;

 

The 6 shrouds for the main ran right about 5,000 Euros with tax and without shipping. The labor will run at or about 1,000 euros or less, if Nicky does it for you. He is a really fast and knowledgeable rigger. If you have other issues on your rig, like anemometer or lighting issues, he can take care of it all. You would have to pay his flight cost to wherever you are.

Amel has already worked out the pin size issues you are addressing. We had the same concerns, but after talking to ACMO, found out they have simply gone to a stronger material for the pins and kept the pin sizes the same as existing. You will receive everything required to make the change from ACMO. No changes to the boat are required in any way.

 

We just replaced all shrouds at the main with zero issues.

Nick,

 

ACMO will ship you what you need...they know what you need and have been doing this for a while. 

 

Regarding your question about substitutes of wire, etc., That needs to be answered by the 54's designer, Amel. I am sure their advice is to use the ACMO solution, since they worked out this solution with ACMO.

 

Hopefully, you are aware that the two intermediate shrouds also changed since the 54s introduction to 10mm, rather than 8mm.
