Subject: RE: [Amel Yacht Owners] keel painting

Hi Eric,

Most any of the better paint/coating companies, such as
INTERLUX, make specific coatings for keels. As the SUPER
MARAMU has an IRON keel (not steel! Iron) the absolute most
important parts of any repair/refinishing is to be sure the
solvents in the new coatings don't "melt" the old coatings,
cut into the old coatings until there is solid adhesion of
the old coatings to the keel, and MOST IMPORTANT, apply the
solvent wash and the primer within minutes of
blasting/grinding the metal clean and bright. Not within an
hour as the directions say, minutes. The reason is iron
starts to oxidize in air immediately. Even some
micro-oxidation will make your re-coating job fail early. I
know from sad experience that this is true. Blast/grind,
solvent wash, coat. As quick as you can do it. Get
helpers.

By the way, if you get the current INTERLUX catalogue,
that's me on the cover in the orange shirt!

All the best,

Found: Missing RPM (pardon if repeat)

Ag Av8ter
 

Hello all,

Been a while since I have been able to get on the web. A while back
I was asking if everyone that had the Volvo TMD22 and the Amel
Autoprop had trouble getting their engines to rev up to the published
max RPM in the manual.

Well I found my missing RPM, and it was not the prop (although I
still think that the prop is overpitched for the engine.

I removed the turbo and of course it was plugged solid with carbon
and "coke". I soaked the exhaust side in brake fluid for three days
and then got a wrench on the intate side of the turbine wheel and
dtarted to work it back and forth. After about 30 minutes of this
the wheels where loose enoung to spin freely. I put it all back
together and took WORLD CITIZEN out for a spin. Results: before max
RPM 1800, after max 3,000. I feel that if I adjust the wastegate
actuator I could get more RPM and power. Speed went from about 6 kts
to a measured 8.6 kts. I am very pleased!! Of course, now I will
start complaining about the increased fuel consuption!!!
Downside .... after I put it together and decided to run it, I left
the heat shield off so I could better watch for leaks. Then I took
her out to sea and ran her hard. Of course as I came back to my
mooring at a sedate idle all was well until I went to put her in
neutral. Opps, not neutral, no reverse. The shifting cable had
layed back across the hot side of the turbo and melted itself. Oh
well at least I was going slow and did not hit anyone or burn
myself!!!

Enjoy your Amel's,

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Question and advise

Vito,
Vito,
I am glad you found it.

When I leave the boat for a few weeks I do the following:

I turn of the main seacock and remove the cover from the sea strainer.

I then put a fresh water hose in the sea strainer and run the following
gear.

Main engine
Generator
Both heads
Air conditioner
Anchor wash

This leaves fresh water in all equipment.
I am sure this adds longevity to the equipment and reduces the smell in the
heads.

When you remove the hose it is best to disconnect the head end

let it drain. Then if you look at were the hose connects on to the

Re: muffler question

asm283 <no_reply@...>
 

Hello

On my boat asm 2000 # 283 the intake side of the muffler is 90mm and
the exaust is 75mm. I tried to retrofit a vetus but I did not like
the way it fit into the engine room. The main problem was the intake
side only swiveled to 90 degrees. I ordered a replacement from
Amel. I am in New Zealand so the choices I had may not be as good as
what you can get in Europe.

Good luck

Hi Ian

I had the heat exchange removed and serviced. It was semi
complicated proedure. An owner could do it if he was familiar with
the process. If you are not mechanically inclined I would not
attempt it. There are seals to replace and most likely the heat
exchange will be in bad shape. I also had the turbo removed and
serviced. Check your muffler for rust.

Hope this helps.

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Dessalator Water Maker Issues

2 April 2006

I continue to investigate the watermaker issues. But Olivier Beaute, of
Amel, has
confirmed to me the following: (at least for watermakers of about my
vintage,
mannufactured about July 2001, Hull # 335),

If everything is working as originally installed the salinity sensor
should divert high
salinity water if detected. However, if the salinity sensor or the circuity
that senses the
salinity fails the watermaker will start up and operate as if everything is
normal even if
high salinity water is being produced. Furthermore, there is no indication
on the machine
to indicate whether or not the salinity sensor is working properly.

Thus my previous statement stands. If you want to avoid the failure
scenario that I
experienced (i.e. salt water being pumped into the fresh water tank when a
membrane
failed despite a green good quality water light) then you need a back up
secondary salinity
sensor with an alarm.

Dessalator says that they do not have schematics or logic diagrams for their
circuit board
because it was manufactured by a sub-contractor that is no longer in
business. They do
say that they have about 50 spare circuit boards available if anyone wants
theirs replaced.
However, it still isn't clear how to best know if you circuit boards is
working.

I suggest the following:

1. Inspect the four fuses on the circuit board to make sure all are ok
one fuse protects the circuit board
one fuse protects the relays
one fuse protects the solenoid
one fuse is the main power to the circuit board fuse.
I will post a picture - parts diagram with fuse sizes etc in an
upcoming post.
2. Verify that the green LED on the circuit board is lit (it indicates that
the DC power
supply on the board is working
3. Verify continuity of the wiring to the circuit board from the salinity
sensor at the
membranes. I had a corroded wire inside a connector.
4. Verify there is continuity of the wiring from the circuit board to the
solenoid.
5. Finally test the salinity sensor as I described in my previous post
using salt water bath
to see if the high salinity is detected and diverts the water.

I am reverse engineering the circuit board and will have those details
available after my
upcoming trip to the boat. At this point I do not believe that there is a
400 hertz signal on
the salinity sensor. It appears that it is a simple DC voltage on a Schmitt
trigger buffered
logic gate. More infor with schematics and a logic diagram in about 3
weeks.

Hi,
Your main halyard is rigged properly. There is a matching piece of line
that attaches to the mainsail halyard car and is used to loosen or tighten
the halyard via a winch. There is no extra line on the halyard. Look in the
owners manual you will se how this works

This is the info on the halyard from the factory.
