Charging batteries

Patrick McAneny
 

My SM is on the hard for the winter,I only have 110 ac available to
me.When I run the onboard charger the breaker behind the distribution
panel trips.Sometimes it does'nt trip for like an hour or so and during
that time the charger is charging.Does anyone know what my problem may
be?Could it be that the 110v is 60hrz.,would that trip the breaker?I
have contacted a large dist.of stand alone chargers for
24v.batteries,and it sounds as though there is'nt a charger out there
that will handle 8 batteries.I could purchase a charger with 4 leads
and charge 2 batteries per lead.However this charger would cost about
$600.00.If anyone has a cheaper solution or advice as to how best to
charge on the hard I'd appreciate it. Thanks,Pat SM 123


Amel SM2000 engine 75hp versus 100hp

n4796p
 

Hi all,
I am in the process of buying a used SM2000. Older versions
(-2002) have a 75hp engine, but are interesting in sight of the price.
Has anybody experience in changing the engine or does anybody have good
arguements for the smaller engine?

Armin

Rob, I can not imagine the pain of doing the whole keel deal! I feel for
you. From under the floor boards I see the access board under the freezer.
Question--can the freezer be removed without removing the wooden frame work.
It appears that the wood is glued in and would entail damage if torn out. I
am hoping for access without damaging the woodwork as it is superior on the
boat. Your perspective is appreciated.

I'll try to send some photos. Definitely an access point under freezer.

I also agree about lifting boat but to detach the keel has been a tough job,
with some delamination.

Hello Sailors,

Does anyone know how to access the three sections of the water tank. I can
get the one under the sink and under the floor boards in the galley but how
does one get to the section under the counter and freezer?
I was grounded on a sand bar and bounced. It cracked the water tank around
the 500-510 liter area and I can see the crack which I cleaned and sealed
with 5200 in the two aforementioned areas but am still leaking so must
access the the third area which I have not been able to do.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for your advice.

Re: {Disarmed} Re: {Disarmed} [Amel Yacht Owners] Water Tank

Anne and John Hollamby <annejohn@...>
 

Hello Bill
When the Amel Techs cured the leak from the bottom of the water tanks they removed the upright fridge,washing mashine and saloon freezer and stored them in the front of the saloon. This was very quickly done and they did not damage anything in the process. I do not recall how they moved the freezer but I am pretty certain that they moved it in one piece including the compressor etc. as there was no complications in reinstalling it all. I do recall thinking that perhaps the quality of the freezer insulation could have been improved whilst it was all open.
Best of luck in your endeavours, John, SM319


Re: {Disarmed} [Amel Yacht Owners] Water Tank

leonorebt@...
 

John, thanks so much for the research. In my situation I am not threatened with sea water incursion unless the sea water is up to the floor boards. I can see the inside crack longitudinally at about the 500 liter level in the tank which is about 6 inches below the floor boards. When filled above 500 liters the water seeps thru the crack and down into the bilge pump to be pumped overboard. I have repaired the crack in two sections of the tank, under the sink and under the galley floor board where access is relatively simple. The challange is under the reefer where there is another access point not readily available unless the freezer/refrig can be removed without damaging the fine wood work encasing same. The wood seems to be glued and that is troubling as removal would most certainly envolve damage unless I am missing something. Amel generally has provided for most contingencies so I am hopefull that that is the case here.

Again, thank you for all your research and any additonal info you may have.

Fair winds, Bill Rahmig SV Leonore of Sark SM 72

Hello Bill,
It doesn't sound good.I entered water tank in the sites search box and got many old messages mostly referring to the non existent salinity monitor on the watermaker. Two that may help are Nos 3007 and 2996. There may be others but I gave up searching.
I think if it were my problem I would fill the tank and have the boat lifted on shore so that I could see where the water was seeping out and have a serious GRP repair done. Remember that the leak works two ways and in the water a low fresh water level will allow sea water to get into the tanks which was one of the symtoms of the leak I had.

Good luck, John Hollamby SM 319

Crash,
I have an '87 Mango and the water depth gage extends down into the
aft chamber of the 4 water tank chambers. This is accessed through
the floor in the galley, just in front of the reefer. The access
opening is small, so you will need to be creative on how to recover
and repair.

the same machine (same size, same connections, quieter, faster
spin) is
being made by Soba called a Babynova 1000. This machine is also
sold by
ENO. I had a French chandlery order one and it works splendidly.

Hi Horst,

They are handicapped under the ARC entry and give us time.

Not surprisingly they are both ahead of us.

Hope all is well with you.

Weather out here is great at present 15kt ENE trades and fine,
warm sunny weather. Still sailing the wind with Genny and balooner
Course opver ground 250 degrees as we drive progressively SW to
that big marquis on the water that awaits usfor that final beer
before the crossing at the one and only 'bear right'Waypoint at
20.00N 30.00W which appears to be where many others are also headed.

Keep in touch

Frank

Frank,

You are very brave to race the 54's, I hope that you agreed to a
handicap prior to setting off.

Anyway, good luck.

Horst

Re: Kenwood EU 340 washing machine SM 140 Sula

Hello Graham,



The washing machine on our SM 216 died last summer. The original machine
was Eumenia. If this is the same as yours, we found that a new version of
the same machine (same size, same connections, quieter, faster spin) is
being made by Soba called a Babynova 1000. This machine is also sold by
ENO. I had a French chandlery order one and it works splendidly. The
company's email is www.sobabaar.com <http://www.sobabaar.com/> .
