rings in aft cabin on maramu

sy melmar y <newsgroup@...>
 

since i don't have had any possibility to talk and ask one of the
preowners of my maramu #89 a (maybe silly) question: in our aft cabin
there are two quite strong rings screwed in - one fwd just between the
entry door to the aft cabin and the little hatch to the cockpit, the
other one aft at the foot end of the beds on the center post. what are
they for? i want to keep/reinstate our maramu as original as possible. i
figuered that the amels did think something on most of the things they
were building in their boats. thanks for any hints.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] double bed in salon on maramu

sy melmar y <newsgroup@...>
 

after reading your message i went on to search behind the folding table
... and of course i found the four holes of the original plate (with the
pipe according to your description). eric: no picture necessary, thanks
for the offer. i just have to find an easy way to get to a similar
support somewhere. thanks.

On the port aft side of the pedestal, the pipe sticks out from the
pedestal and through the hole in the leaf of the table when it is down
to make the bed on the port side. It is either polished stainless steel
or chrome plated. It is at the height of the top of the port seat. The
extended board rests on the seat all along the port side, the seat fore,
and the pipe on the port side of the pedestal, for its starboard support
aft. I can take a picture and email it to you next time I am at the
boat. Eric

eric: just to get it right. the original pipe is affixed to the pedestal
- the one in the middle through the „two inch hole“ or towards the
seatinglocker on port side?

On my Maramu the extended board rests on the lip of the seat forward,
and a small pipe sticks out of the "two inch hole" in the table when it
is folded down to support the other end aft. The original pipe is
approx 1" diameter by 4" long and affixed to the pedestal. Eric 105

hello
i'm tying to reinstate some 'lost' original installations on our maramu.
one of them being the double bed on port side in the salon. putting the
second wooden board under the port bench board is the easy part. this
one folds out toward the mid pedestal. fwd it lies on the short cross
bench. on the aft side it must lie on something as well. is the about
two inch hole in the down folded table the solution? could anybody show
or explain the item which was originally installed for that purpose?

Re: Anchor Chain

bobparry1947 <bob@...>
 

When we bought our SM in 2004, she came with 50m of 8mm chain. Last
year, we bought a new gypsy from Amel but you should be able to get
one from a Lofrans distributor as listed on their website or any
Lofrans supplier. We now have 90m (we had ordered 100m) of 10mm short
link hot dipped chain. Be aware that there are two sizes of short link
so match the chain to the gypsy. We have an anchor swivel between the
anchor and the chain.

We don't have a problem with storing the chain in the chain locker and
have not had any problems in that area. Nor is the weight a problem.
We did find that the chain peeler was catching the chain as we brought
it in. As we were not able to easily get a new one, we took it off. So
far, that has worked well. Don't use rope near coral.

Can't help with chain suppliers as our boat is in the Med and we are
Australian.

hammer to break it up. Me-thinks it time to replace the chain.

Being in the US, metric chain seems unatainable, hence a potential
incompatibility with the windlass gypsy. Anyway, looking for
suggestions, knowing that there are probably as many opinions about
anchoring as there are skippers.

1) Recommended size/type chain. Thinking 3/8" G40 or G70, but can a
replacement gypsy for that size chain be found for this windlass.
Alternatively, is metric chain available in the US at palatable prices.

2) Recommended rode configuration. Thinking 100-150' of chain and
100'-150' of rope. Planning cruising in Caribbean and South Pacific.

Hi Vito,

That muffler is aluminum, not stainless. They are not able
to be repaired. Trust me. We tried twice and the only one
who was happy was the welding supplies store.

AMEL went to a plastic/poly type on later boats from VETUS.
The advantage was that they don't corrode and since they are
"flexible" they eliminated vibration and were a little more
quiet. The big negative is they melt if the raw water
injection at the exhaust elbow goes away. All in all, most
folks like them better than the original or the fiberglass
pot-type Aqua Lift brand mufflers. Perhaps Olivier could
supply us with the model number and any installation tips.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Anchor Chain

Thomas.Neuland@t-online.de <thomas.neuland@...>
 

Dear Mike,

I had the same question as you had- the chain was just too short, old
and way too light.
We had a modification done at Amel's shipyard in Hyeres and the
recommended 76 m of 10 mm nickeled (not stainless) chain with just
another nutwheel on the Lofrans windlass. It is a super combination. The
lenghth is just right because it is not resulting in "chain-mountains"
inside the chain-house.
Do yourself a favor and add a turning clutch between anchor and chain
since the chain tends to get twisted a this lenghths. About non-metric
sizes I don't know of course, but Amel's info and support was (again)
superb.

Fair winds.

I concur with Eric. Friends of ours with a sister ship had an
inspection
port installed a couple of years ago. Not a major task except for
making
sure the metal bits are out of the tank after cutting the access port.
But
if the goal is to clean the tank anyway.... At the same time, they also

6 volt is the only way to go. you can discharge/ recharge a 6 volt
battery up to 1,000 times compared to a 12 volt, which the best only go
around 250. The plates are twice as thick on the 6 volt. I have used
them for at least 10 years, and would never go back. Two 6 volt

two thirds the space, and they are a lot easier to get in and out of the

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] BATTERIES FOR SULAJON SM #347

Eric Lindholm
 

I use trojan 105 batteries which are 220 ah, cost about $100 or less US. I use all 6 batteries for the house, and installed a separate 12 volt starting battery for the engine. Eric maramu 105

Horst Pause <horst@...> wrote: What batteries do you use? Have they got bolt and nut connectors?



I bought (expensive) Deka Saturated Glass Mat, 12 V, and forgot to
physically disconnect the inverter during a recent 4 month lay-up. This
caused such severe sulphation that the batteries are now for the skip.



The boat is in Sardinia.



Thank you for any information you can give me.

6 volt is the only way to go. you can discharge/ recharge a 6 volt
battery up to 1,000 times compared to a 12 volt, which the best only go
around 250. The plates are twice as thick on the 6 volt. I have used
them for at least 10 years, and would never go back. Two 6 volt
batteries provide almost the same amp hours as a 12 volt 8d, using only
two thirds the space, and they are a lot easier to get in and out of the
boat.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Digest Number 776

Eric Lindholm
 

David, I agree with your wiring diagram as set forth in the first part of your email, but I question if I understand your last comment about orienting the batteries + - then -+ then + - then - +. You end up with two + terminals and I don't know what voltage. The batteries have to be aligned as in the first part of your email + - then+ - then+ - then+ -, and you will end up with one bank of 24 volts, with a + and - terminal to connect to the next bank ++ and -- to power the boat. 2 banks of 24 volts, and most 6 volt batteries are 220 ah, so one 24 bank should also be 24 volt 220 ah, with the two combined at 440 ah.

David, I guess I missed the 24 volt question. I just wanted to clarify
the
manner in which the batteries are connected. I have seen owners try to
connect
all of the negative terminals together, or the supply positive and
negative to
terminals used to wire the batteries in series with varying results,
ie melted
cables, sparks, or simply a connection to a 6 volt supply. Love this
site. Eric

Bill you connect the positive terminal of one battery to the negative
terminal
of another battery, and those two batteries equal one 12 volt battery.
You will
have one positive terminal( which I will call A terminal), and one
negative
terminal(which I will call B terminal) which are not connected to
anything, and
these are your new 12 volt positive and negative terminals. Make up
four sets
like this. Connect the 4 positive A terminals to each other, and the 4
negative
B terminals to each other just like you do your 12 volt batteries, and
then run
this to your battery switch. Use the largest battery cable you can
find
for all
connections, this is very important. These batteries have a lot of
power, and
undersized cable will not let you utilize all that is available. Eric

dlm48@... wrote: cunfused i am

you will need FOUR 6V batteries wired in series to produce 24V

if you have EIGHT 6V batteries then you have two sets of 4 series wired
batteries wired in parallel to double the AH capacity

the only new wiring would be the series wiring as in the above example
six short piecies of wire

and so on

Eric & John,

I am intrigued by this 6 volt option. I have 12 house batteries.

. I assume that you would divide these into 4 parallel wired sets
of
3
batteries with an output of 6 volts per set.

. Then I assume that you would wire 2 of these sets of 3 in series
producing 12 volts and do the same with the other 2 sets of three.

. Lastly I assume that you wire the 2 12 volt pairs in series to
produce
24 volts.

I guess another option would be 3 sets of 4 wired in a series and then
connect the 3 series-wired sets parallel to produce 24 volts?

I assume that either method will require almost all new wiring? Any
input
will be appreciated.

Regards,

Bill Rouse
