calll the corps of engineers navigation section and go with the charts. They are very helpful. Usually you can get under all the 65 foot bridges by waiting for low tide slack water, then wait on the other side 2houors to deepen the water. Murray seidel sm349 910-470-1225

We own SM #240 and are also headed south from the Chesapeake to South
Carolina in three weeks.

I assume you are talking about going through the ICW; unfortunately,
while the regulations call for a depth of 12 feet, it has been much
neglected over the past few years and has silted up in many areas.
Postings in chat rooms talk about a five foot depth in some spots; I
motored the ICW in a previous boat six years ago, and at times bumped
with a six foot keel. I don't see any alternative for you except the
outside route around Hatteras. There is no place to put in between
Norfolk and Beaufort, NC. Be sure to allow yourself a reasonable
weather window; with planning, it should not be much of a problem,
but the conditions around Hatteras are very fluky and can change
quickly. Always an adventure, but your boat should be able to handle
most of what Hatteras can throw at you.

The bridge at Snows Cut south of wrightsville beach, nc. can be navigated at dead low tide ( the tide time given for carolina beach inlet ( south of Masonboro inlet). I take my Sm #349 through frequently, but be prepared to pass caroline beach inlet 2hours earlier and anchor in entrance to the cul de sac leading to the town center of carolina beach. The docks on the south of snowns cut in the cul de sac are not deep enough for the 6.5 feet as the tide drops. Murray Seidel "sundance" . 910-470-1225. Also suggest going to the corps of engineer's office and taking charts and speaking with the navigation section people. They are very helpful.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Quantity of bowthruster oil

Dave, Bel Ami,

My bowthruster has a small see-through reservoir mounted in the
port side cabinet in the V-birth with a feed tube down to the bowthruster.
It is easy to monitor the fluid level and add the 90 weight oil. The
reservoir holds about 0.3 liters.

I have just changed the main engine prop seals with the bushing and
seals obtained from Amel. A special proper extractor tool or 3/way
puller was needed, which we fashioned in the yard I'm in (Independent
Boat Yard Marina on St. Thomas, USVI). When inserting the new seals,
we used a large cutlass bearing (large brass cylinder) that was about
the same outer diameter as the new seals to seat the new seals in
place. I wonder what others have used for this process of re-seating
the new seals.
Thanks
Dave

Great. I used .3 liters after changing all the seals, including the

Dave, We just did ours yesterday here in Annapolis. A
good grade of 90 wt. in exactly the quanity you need
is available at most boat supply store in the outboard
sections. A tube of oil can be poured right in and
that is enough. Better still using the "tube" you
don't have a smelly bottle laying about. If gear lube
spills it's on hell of a smelly mess..
Good luck and fair seas.

Hi Anne and John, It seems that hotmail will allow me to write a fresh

My deleted replies were to thank you for your chum's observations on

The orange peel comment rings a bell from something I read a few years ago.
I wonder if they have now changed the mix? It needs to be rolled on , using
very small quantities, one litre at a time, mixing vigorously.
I see that Mr Matthews now puts it on his new Oystercatcher so maybe they
are having more success with its application.I need to do some more

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Bigger Bed

john martin <symoondog@...>
 

Hi Ed, this is Johns wife Ruth. the original owner of our SM (#248) ordered the king size aft cabin bunk option from Amel when he bought the boat. It consists of board that fits between the permanent bunk and the front of the vanity, with a second cushion that goes on top. You dont have to always use it of course. Both the board and the cushion store under the permanent bunk (similar to how the port side of the bow cabin bunk can be expanded) but they take up alot of volume. when deployed it uses virtually all the floor space of the aft cabin and the bunk is huge. I dont like the king option at all, it is way too big so we dont use it ourselves as we find the aft bunk big enough, and it takes up too much good storage space if not deplyed. also, we have put a front on the vanity with two cabinet doors, so the king system blocks those doors from opening.

but John has used it when I was not on board and he had a boat load of guys doing an offshore run. The king expansion plus the lee board down the middle allowed two guys to bunk out back there with plenty of room for each of them. It also would be great if you wanted to throw a bunch of kids back there for a pajama party. Other than that it is not very useful and we dont even have it on board right now.

I think the solution described in an earlier email by Pen Azen is a great one. It allows two people to sleep beamwise which is nice if you are in a rolly anchorage or offshore in rolly seas, yet it doesnt completely use up all the floor space. We have already shortened the leeboard so that when it is rolly, one of us can sleep beamwise and the other can sleep fore & aft, but I think now we will reduce the size of the Amel-provided king bunk system we have to be like the one described by Pen Azen.
