Cheers for the gin. I have new end caps (from Amel),
however I did not receive the membranes yet and I am
away from the boat. The job will be done in January
and I will report the resulting TDS.
Happy new year to you and the group, Michael, Yonita

By the way, I have found the solution to shot

this....neat Gin comes in at
2.5 TDS. So I figured that with a couple of crates
of Gordons in the bilges
I could mix the lot and meet FDA regs ( 500TDS max).
Imagine, showering and

Hi Jan & Judy,
I ordered the membranes from Air Ice & Water, the
reference is SW30-2521 and they cost $158 each.
Prior
to ordering, I consulted with Caroline at Advance
Yachts who represent Dessalator in the UK. Her

I believe you can measure your membrane

inside
diameter) and about 40"
long between the end caps.

We recommend ordering a complete set of O

for
the end caps and
for the high pressure fittings (3 ---1 an
interconnect bobbin between
the two tubes and two raw water inlet
fittings)
from
Amel or
Dessalator before you start the job...also
you
will
find postings on
this website for O ring sizes if you want to
buy
generic O rings.

We not only needed a few O rings, but also
had
to
replace 2 end caps
(the seats in the end caps for the

bobbin were in bad
shape from high pressure leakage)...we
elected
to
replace all 4 end

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Lightweight RIB

ianjenkins1946 <ianjudyjenkins@hotmail.com>
 

Hi John and Anne, Just got our Sheerwater 280. NZ to Falmouth by sea and Miami to Montevideo air freight---and worth every penny.We can launch it by hand form the aft deck and retrieval is a cinch compared to our bullet proof but HEAVY Carib. It goes beautifully with our 2hp Yamaha and out of sight with our 15hp Now doing sterling service in the Beagle Channel.Thanks for the tip. Cheers, Ian and Judy, Pen Azen

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Lightweight RIB
Date: Sat, 03 Jun 2006 11:44:07 -0000

Hello Ian and Judy,
Sorry for my delay in replying but I have been away.
My dinghy is a Southern Pacific Shearwater 310 and it is great. It is
now five years old and looks like new despite the fact that it has
been exposed all that time to the strong Meditteranean sun.Another
plus point is that it has three airchambers which our previous AB did
not and it is therefore much less dangerous when, as happened to us in
the Tuamotus, a shark took a bite out of the fabric the size of my hand.
It is fitted with a Mercury 15hp motor with small hydrofoils on the
skeg and will do 24 knots with only my 100 kgs on board in flat water.
It also finally got up on the plane with three heavy adults and a lot
of shopping in choppy water.
It cost much less than any European RIBs when we bought it and if the
price has not gone up I would expect it to be competitive in price
even including air freight. The lightweight is great for lifting it
out onto deck. We will post a pic of it (in the SM319 album)deflated
on the aft cabin top,later today.
Their website is www.southernpacific.co.nz and their ph/fax no is or
was +64-9-4788075
On short passages with good forecasts it is carried on the Amel davits
which can be seen in the pic of my liferaft carrier in the Bali Hai
album. It is essential to lash it down firmly so that it is not thrown
around in a seaway. On very short passages we sometimes hoist the
dinghy and engine on the davits by using the passurelle halyard
clipped on to the davit at the engine end.On longer passages it is
carried inflated but inverted on top of the aft cabin because I am
mindful of the fact that no long time survival in a liferaft has been
recorded without a dinghy being used at the same time for stores etc.
I also recall the experience of an American family whose yacht was run
down at night in bad weather by a ship. The boy went down with the
boat but the couple and the young daughter found themselves in the sea
with their AB dinghy which popped up to the surface as the yacht
disintegrated.
Sadly the father and daughter perished but the mother survived after
the dinghy was blown ashore in NZ. It seems that the father went into
the water to save the daughter and then was unable to get back into
the dinghy. For this reason it is suggested that it is essential to
have a rope tied to the handles either side of the hull with one or
two knots in the scope so that a person in the water has something to
pull themself into the boat.
The ship was traced in Taiwan and in the subsequent case the widow
accepted undisclosed damages in an agreed settlement. It seems that
she was on watch alone when they were run down and she claimed that it
was her practice to go around the deck every 15 minutes to make sure
all was well! We were within 30 miles of them at the time and with
very strong winds and waves there is no way I would even think about
getting out of the cockpit. The other stupid thing that came up was
that they only used their radar when within 12 miles of the coast.
One of the perils of GPS is that people set a course on their
autopilot connecting two set points which are probably being used by
every other vessel thus ensuring maximum exposure to being rundown.

Sorry not to have replied earlier, Anne and John,SM319

Re: DISHWASHER & MICROWAVE

We made the mistake using the microwave with 60hz...it will work, but
it will shorten the life of the microwave. The breaker would trip
whenever we attempted to use the microwave longer than about 5
minutes. The turntable in our microwave stopped working after using it
with 60hz for a very short time. The dishwasher and clothes washing
machine also should not be operated on 60hz. The A/C has not problems
with 60hz or 50hz.

Hi Peter,
The microwave can be used with 60 Hz, but I am told that excessive use is bad for the microwave generator. The convection function, however, is not compatible. The dishwasher, like the clothes washer, is definitely not compatible with 60 Hz current.

Re: TDS levels

Peter Turner <peterhturner@...>
 

Dear Gary and others!
Thanks for all the interesting comments. I seem to have opened a can of worms!
My SM2000 "Asolare" has a 60 l/m Duo fitted and I thought that as long as the indicator showed "safe Water" all the flow into the tank was OK. Do I assume that this testing devise does not work in this way?
I have ordered (now under review) the Duo 100l/h unit for my Amel 54, as the larger unit also offered can not be used on 24 Volts.
I have four large solar panels and with a shaft generator normally have fully charged batteries when underway. When I have to motor sail I use the watermaker on 24 Volts to effectivelly use the high output of the 175 amp alternator on the engine. I know that nothing is for free - but it feels like that!!!
Thanks so much for you very helpful comments.
Peter

Hi John,
Thanks for email.
The gang planck has clearly been a problem for Amel but the latest version appears to be excellent as the two piece unit retracts as the hand hold folds neatly into a storage slot and the assembly then rotates into its "letterbox".
Kind regards,

Black panels between cabin windows

John and Anne on Bali Hai <annejohn@...>
 

Hi Gary,
Anne tackled this problem last summer. The really hard bit was removing
the adhesive. The film goes under the stainless trim and some could be
pulled out and the rest was cut flush. I suppose there is a solvent
which would remove the adhesive easily but it is not acetone or white
spirit. Chewing gum remover was a help but only comes in tiny tubes,
the best stuff we had to hand was an Australian or NZ product called
Disolvit and perhaps Swarfega, the hand cleaner. Perhaps Joel knows
what Amel used to get rid of it? It took many hours hard work to clean
off. Care was taken to reduce the risk of disolving the sealant holding
the windows water tight
She used a push scraper with a razor blade but I suspect a pull
scraper such as a Scarsten would have been better as the push one
tended to dig into the gelcoat. Anne used a brush to apply black enamel
paint having found that Hammerite left brush marks.

Merry Christmas to all, Anne and John, SM 319

Dessalator 160 which is the 240 volt 50 hz, 160
liter/hour watermaker.

The membranes we purchased from Air Water and Ice
are SW30-2540.
These are 2.5" x 40"

Before you do anything study the photo section on
this website for
the watermaker and membrane tubes and some very
detailed instructions
in a posting both done by Gary Silver, a SM2 owner.

I believe you can measure your membrane tubes to
determine if they
are about 2.75" outside diameter (2.5' inside
diameter) and about 40"
long between the end caps.

We recommend ordering a complete set of O rings for
the end caps and
for the high pressure fittings (3 ---1 an
interconnect bobbin between
the two tubes and two raw water inlet fittings) from
Amel or
Dessalator before you start the job...also you will
find postings on
this website for O ring sizes if you want to buy
generic O rings.

We not only needed a few O rings, but also had to
replace 2 end caps
(the seats in the end caps for the interconnect
bobbin were in bad
shape from high pressure leakage)...we elected to
replace all 4 end
caps.

Judy, I am in touch with Air, Water & Ice re the
membranes and they are telling me that you bought
the
SW3-2540 membranes. Can you please confirm to me
that
your watermaker actually is the Dessalator D60.
Thanks, Michael SM #345
