Hi,

I am current moderator of the group and I have my boat at Spanish Med
(22 miles north of America´s cup challenging field).

I know also Almerimar and it is ok as it has been said. However there
are plenty of places where you can leave your boat, It depends on
what services you will need and on which part you will finish your
trip.

Lagos in Portugal is also beautiful.

I can also say that Melilla (African coast but spanish territory) is
cheaper than the Spanish peninsula.

If you are interested in the Almeria Bay area, apart from Almerimar
you have Roquetas, Aguadulce, Almeria...

If you plan to double Gata Cape and move north up the Spanish
peninsula there are also multiple options, including Balearic
Islands. If you plan to visit them in your trip to Turkey. I suggest
you to visit also Corsica, Cercenya, Sicilia, etc.

Let me know what you need, I will try to help you from Madrid.

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Looking to purchase a "South" Amel


Hello to all and thank you to the list owner for accepting me as a
member of your group.

In the process of moving up in yacht size I have placed Amels on my
short list.

I'm in Brisbane, Australia and enquire whether there are any Amel
owners who might be planning, or indeed are in transit south and
intend to make Australia or SoPac the final stop with intention of
selling their yacht here or somewhere else in the SoPac.

I am looking to purchase within a flexible timeframe and would
consider Amels 46' and over, preferably without C Drive...ie Maramu
and Mango, although C Drive yachts built prior to 1998 may be
considered.

Incidently, any purchase is not dependent on the sale of an
existing vessel as is so often the case. That is, I intend a cash
purchase for the right yacht.

I am looking for a personal yacht. I am not a broker or dealer and
would ask that only private owners contact me personally. I do not
wish to transact with brokers, dealers , professional or semi-
professional yacht delivery outfits.

Please feel free to contact me at.....

Luis, we have spent a number of weeks in Almerimar
over the last few years. This is a great spot, you
have all the services you need along with resonable
prices. The Marina is well protrected and getting
transport to other parts of Europe and the world are
not an issue.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Darn Batteries - Thank you

Eric Lindholm
 

There is another item you may want to check and that is AC ripple from your charger. There was an article in a recent Cruising World on how AC ripple can cause your batteries to discharge even when the charger is going full bore. The article said to test for this with a multimeter on the AC setting, putting the black probe on the negative, the red on the positive, and if it shows more that .2 VAC it will cause to batteries to discharge while cooking them at the same time. Cruising World March 2007 page 98.

Re: Marinas in Spain

Ken Knight <ken@...>
 

Spanish Marinas in August are at their most expensive and it is the
busiest time, but after mid September they become much cheaper and
easier to get berths.
Many yachts over winter in Barcelona there are 2 marinas with a third
being completed, the most popular is Port Vell being an easy walk to
the Ramblas (centre of the city) second is Port Olympic. The marinas in
Barcelona are not so expensive but getting a winter berth can be a
problem. Barcelona is an exciting & vibrant city, from Barcelona
Airport one can get budjet flights to almost anywhere in Europe.
North of Barcelona there are many Marinas most of which are cheaper
than those in the South of Spain. Such as Palamos, Estratit, L'Escala
(not very sheltered), Rosas, Empuriabrava (where we are berthed & the
most sheltered),etc all within easy reach of Barcelona or Girona
Airport, suprisingly some of these are more expensive than Puerto Vela,
Rosas & Empuriabra are not very far from the French border & within
easy reach of the Balearics & Sardinia.

Hi,

Marinas in Spain now tend either to be expensive, and full, or if a
reasonable price then just full. Two you could try are Almerimar and
Aguadulce, both are at the bottom end of the price range. Almerimar is
big but Aguadulce is better sheltered (ignore the pilot book - the writer
must never have been there and much of the information is inaccurate!)
Both not far from Almeria, which has good transport links as well
as "cheap" flights to the rest of Europe.

Good hunting,

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Marinas in Spain

Though it's not in Spain, the Lagos Marina in the Portuguese Algarve is a great place to safely leave your boat. We sailed there in the summer of 2000 and noticed that many Europeans and especially Brits kept their vessels there while they were away elsewhere. The Chipione Marina on the south of Spain, though small, is also attractive and at the time was very inexpensive (of course the dollar was a LOT stronger then).

Good luck and enjoy your trip. Horta in the Azores is still one of my best remembered landfalls. Be sure to bring along some paint and brushes to paint your names on the Mole there and do stop in to Peter's Cafe Sport, one of the coolest yachtie hangouts in all of sailingdom.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Darn Batteries-Link 10

amelliahona <no_reply@...>
 

Hi Dimitris and Tony:

I can confirm that the Link 10 is a monitoring system only. It does not
directly control anything. It directly monitors voltage at the battery bank
and has a shunt to measure amperage (current flow) in and out of the
battery bank. The amp hours used and percent functions are based on
calculations performed by the Link 10.

However, since most of us depend upon the readings that the Link 10
displays to determine how long to charge the batteries and to what
voltage and/or percent of charge to charge one might say that indeed
the Link 10 does "control", although in an indirect sense, the charging
of the batteries.

Having just re-read Tony's post I can think of a couple of items that
might cause his symptoms. 1) Possibly a single bad battery, 2) a high
resistance connection between the charger and the battery bank, 3) a
high resistance connection between the Link 10 and the battery bank, and
4) a sneak circuit that is draining the battery bank.

For Possibility # 1 To troubleshoot, I would suggest Tony use a digital
multimeter to measure the voltage of the batteries each individually.
You can do this for each battery without removing anything by simply
placing the negative multimeter probe on one negative battery post
and the positive multimeter lead on the positive post of the same battery.
Write your findings down and verify that all batteries have nearly the same
voltage. This will assure you that you don't have a single bad battery
creating a drain on your system. (do this with the charger off, and with
no load on the batteries and then again with a fairly high load on the
batteries).

#2 Next, measure the charging voltage at the charger output and compare
that with the charging voltage at the batteries. If it isn't nearly identical
then you have a high resistance connection there that you need to correct.

#3 Next, measure the voltage of the entire bank of batteries at the main
bank terminals as they exit the battery box. See if this voltage is that
same as displayed by the Link 10. If it is not very very close than you
have a bad (high resistance) connection on the link 10. Look for it and
correct it. As someone in these post said, "garbage in garbage out".
The Link 10 needs good data to yield good data.

#4 Next, once the battery bank has stabilized from the charging sequence,
(e.g. 30 minutes after charging), shut off every 24 volt breaker including
any "keep alive memory" circuits (like the radio memory switch on my
Hull # 335 Amel), and verify that the Link 10 shows zero current draw
and that the voltage is stable (i.e. not dropping). If it doesn't show zero
current draw or a stable voltage then you have a "sneak circuit" somewhere
that is draining your batteries. Normally the voltage will drop very slowly,
we are talking a few tenths of a volt over many hours due to battery self
discharge. If there is more rapid drop off you will need to find the sneak
circuit and fix it. That can involve a bit of detective work and a "clamp
ammeter", that usually cost about $US 50.


Tony, lastly, verify that your set up of the Link 10 has proper data set
into it as previously mentioned in this thread. Use the install manual to
verify the correct set up. Take careful notes during each step of this
Trouble-shooting process and I believe you will find your problem.

Good luck.

Subject: Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Darn Batteries-Link 10

With respect, I don't think the Xantrex Link controls anything. What
it does do very well is to monitor the batteries' charging and
discharging. What Dimitris is probably referring to is that the Link
needs to know the Amp Hour capacity of your battery bank in order to
do its calculations. Trojans, for instance are 105 Ah at 6 volts;
thus four batteries would equate to 210 Ah at 12 volts or 105Ah at 24
volts. I have a Link for my 12 volt system and it comes preset to
assume the battery bank has 200 Ah at 12 volts; it needs to be set.
This information should allow you to check and set accordingly.

However, Tony doesn't mention a Link, but a Mastervolt, model not
specified. It probably has the same need for batterybank data.
Whether it's a Link or a Mastervolt, there is no substitute for
checking all the readings with a multimeter. In case you've never
used one, they're really dead easy and provide more accurate data
then other approaches. The Link for instance is just a computer and
so works on the garbage in garbage out principle. (I did find a fault
in my Link and had to return it to the USA for replacement under
warranty.) Maybe the Mastervolt does actually control the charge
voltage, i.e. a master regulator as it's name suggests, in which case
you'd be looking for something like a grubscrew, which may be on the
front, the back, or inside of the unit. The manual or a google search
would tell you.

27.3 volts is a maintenance charge only; however the amperage at 3-5
indicates that the batteries are full (2% of capacity). You do need
to explore the issue until you can establish 28.4 volts. You mention
that you have to run the generator 2-3 times per day to keep up with
demand but do not provide any data on demand. It's not hard to
establish the amp draw for each consumer; the Link can show that
information with a bit of attention to isolating other draws, and
shows the total draw, currently and accumulated, as standard
displays; a multimeter would be better. It's not wise to use more
than half the Ah capacity of your bank and some would say 30%. All
the more reason to ensure your capacity is correctly recorded in the
monitor.

Finally, have you considered adding solar and wind generation, to set
you free of hydrocarbon generators and shorepower? My solar alone
powers the fridge and ventilators when I'm away, which is the
majority of the time. It's a good feeling to know the boat is carbon
neutral most of the time. More practically, it means that I can leave
her disconnected from shorepower and avoid the dreaded marina
galvanic corrosion.

Hi Tony

I also have the Dolphin chargers 2 50 amp units. I use them in
combination when I charge with the generator and a single unit
when I
am on shore power.

If your unit is similar to the one that i have there should be a
selector switch that allows you to choose the type of battery that
you are charging. If you select the GEL setting it will charge at a
higher voltage and a higher amprage. BEWARE when you hook into shore
power make sure that you put the selector switch back to the setting
for wet cell batteries. Because if you leave it on GEL you may run
the danger of cooking the batteries. I learned this the hard way.

However, if you use this feature to slightly overcharge your
batteries say 8 to 10 hours this will help condition your batteries
and help them hold a higher voltage.

Its also important to monitor the the amount of amps that your
battery bank is accepting as well as the voltage. There is much
information out there on this subject.

Hope this helps

Hello group,

I own SM#266. About six months ago I talked with the Amel factory
and discussed my battery / charger problems. They assured me that
I
needed to replace my current batteries. I did that in St. Maartin,
new wet cells. Same problem as before. We sailed to Guadaloupe
and
talked to Amel there. We were directed to Pouchon. The man at
Pouchon said that our battery charger (Nemo 50) was defective. I
told him to fix it, he said no, it was too old (1999) there
were no
parts. He sold me and installed a new Dolphin 100 amp. charger.
New
batteries, new charger same old problem.

Problem;

Charger works fine, charges batteries to 27.3 volts and then
quits.
I just talked to Rolls Batteries, and they said I needed to be
able
to charge to 28.4 to prevent "deficet charging" and to 31 volts to
de-
sulfate the batteries.

The batteries show 100% charge (Mastervolt) and 27.3 volts and
will
stay like that with the charger going for as long as I leave it.
As
soon as the charger is off line the voltage drops to 25.6 and
starts
dropping until I charge the batteries again. Currently I must run
the generator two to three times a day to keep up with the demand.

When using the main engine and 80 amp 24 volt alternator, the same
things happens, the charge stops at 27.3 volts and about 3 - 5
aamps.

Question: Is there an Amel voltage regulator that gets both the
charger and alternator current? Where is it? Can it be adjusted?
I
have talked with Denis at Dolphin and it does not seem that my
charger has mulitple programs, so I can not use it to
"equalize" my
batteries.

Any comments?

Fred, we are here in the US with a very good Amel 46 for sale. We are how the owner of two boats, both Amel's. I have had a very serious shoulder problem(S) that have forced us into/onto a bigger boat with electric everything. So, we have a very good manual Amel that is simple to sail and ready to go. We did a complete re-fit prior to crossing the Atlantic in 05. The boat is now in Annapolis and ready to sail.

We are will go the airfare if in the end you buy her. Let me know if you are interested. She is a very complete boat and can be seen on Yacht World. We are the owners not the brokers.

Looking forward to hearing from you one way or the other.
