Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] SM chain counter

Ian Shepherd <ocean53@...>
 

Hello Mike,

I have a problem with my chain counter too. When at anchor, the reading
slowly counts down, though never up. I have contacted Pochon and they say
that it is a fault in the circuit board in the display meter. They say they
can fix it if I send the meter back to them. I would say that your problem
is also on this board.

My problem seems to be worse in high temperatures. I wonder where you are
located right now? Also, can you tell me if the two 13 mm holes in the side
of the sensor that is bolted to the left hand side of the windlass are
uncovered, or are they fitted with rubber plugs to keep moisture out? Mine
are open, which seems a a little odd.

Regards

Ian Shepherd SM 414 Crusader

When turned on, our chain counter politely counts down, or up after pressing
the Z, in apparent seconds, completely unaffected by what may be happening
at the windlass. Have others experienced this and what is the culprit?

Head pump

Mike Ondra <mondra@...>
 

We are persistently getting backflow of waste water through the check valves
back into the toilet bowl, enough sometimes to fill the bowl. Besides being
unpleasant at anchor, this can be a mess under sail. I would presume (and
hope) this volume represents the waste water from the riser tube only and is
not siphoning out of the holding tank somehow leaking back through the
tricuspid check valve as well as the flapper valve in the pump assembly.
New valve and flapper seemed to retard the problem for a short time only.

Does anyone know what the riser tube looks like inside the holding tank.
Does it simply extend to near the top of the holding tank with an open end
inches below the top of the tank? Or perhaps there is a 180 deg elbow on
top?

Have other faced this and discovered the problem and solution?

Tony,

I had FKG rigging of Simpson Bay St. Martin install davits. They ran a
strut thru the transom to the inner blocking in the aft locker for
strength. The cost was about $2,000.00. Sulajon is on the hard at Nanny
Cay Marina in Road Town until November, then at F dock.

As you have already discovered, the up-down switches on the
Tigress windlass is an Amel installed feature. You access the
switches by removing the screws that hold the aft windlass
housing to the main body of the windlass. Turn off the power
first!. Amel Supplied me with a new set of switches and new
rubber covers. You can order just the rubber covers from Amel
as well. I ordered several sets of covers as they go away after
about 2 years in the tropics.
My switches were ok even though the rubber cover
had been torn for several months. The switch/cover assembly
is held in place by a nut on the inside of the windlass cover and
the rubber cover is best held in place with some RTV sealant
since tightening the nut tends to extrude the rubber cover
from the metal ring.

One of the rubber boots covering one of the
up-down switches built into the Tigress windlass
is torn. I am not sure how to get access to
this switch and where to find a replacement for the boot.
The US distributor, Imtra, says that do not put
up-down switches on these windlasses and did not
have a replacement boot.

Also, does the round metal thing that holds the rubber boot
unscrew from outside the windass, or do I have to
open up the windlass motor housing?

Re: going to the rio dulce

tepestdoc <tepestdoc@...>
 

Tempest (Mango Hull 44) was last in Rio Dulce in 1996. She was
taken there by here previous owner. The log entries showed it was a
good trip, except for a lightning strike. All her sailing instruments
were replaced. We draw 6.5 feet. You could always heel her over the
bar if it is tight. This is done fairly frequently in the Gulf with
low bridges, especially in Mobile.
Fair winds,
