I'll assume it's like my Santorin - look in the end of the tubes and you'll find cotter pins. Remove them and "Bob's your Uncle".

Which mast are you refering to? I can send you a photograph tomorrow with the specs of the missing winch, which are all Lewmar on our Maramu.

Previous owner removed our reefing winch at base of mast. Would like to know what was there so I can find something that will bolt right in without mods.

I posted a notice some time ago about these but didn't hear from anyone so they are on ebay now. I am also advertising them on craigslist so it's possible to buy direct without going through ebay.

Thanks, Bill. I'll check it out when I get back to the boat. Mine's actually an AutoHelm unit, but it's time I learned how it works, huh?

Kent,

The drive motors are 24 volt, the drive motor clutches are 12 volt. The course computer is in the cupboard above the galley sink. The lower 1/3 of the front of the course computer can be removed to get to the fuses. The 4 amp clutch fuse should be set to the 12 volt position.

Thanks, Eric. I guess it's time for me to get the manuals out and really understand how the thing works. Mine is actually an autohelm unit.

I guess I assumed that the autopilot was 24 volt, I'll check mine when I get back to her this weekend. Is the inspection plate on the unit above the galley sink?

Raymarine 24 volt Autopilot Drive & 12 volt Clutches - Linear & Rotary

svbebe <yahoogroups@...>
 

Greetings,

Our Raymarine 24 volt Linear Drive unit failed recently. We sent the unit to Raymarine Asia Service Center for repair. The diagnosis was a failed clutch. I had the clutch replaced and for good measure, also replaced the drive motor.

Recently the clutch failed again. In discussions with Raymarine we found that the 4 amp clutch fuse inside the Raymarine Course Computer was set to 24 volts rather than 12 volts. Raymarine's tech informed us that all of their clutches are 12 volts, even in a 24 volt drive. The fuse is easy to find. Open the inspection door and look for the label, "Clutch <-12V - 24V ->"

I never changed this fuse position to 24 volts and I suspect it probably was in this position since installation. You might want to check yours. I would be interested in hearing if anyone else has this set incorrectly.

Best,

Bill

Re: [Amel] Dessalator 160 Logic Board

Anne and John Hollamby <annejohnholl@...>
 

Hi Bill,
We installed one several years ago and the PCB is very different to the original. No wiring changes were necessary and it really is plug and play. The pump still starts after two minutes but it rejects the product until it is giving a reading of about 600ppm. There is then a click as the solenoid kicks in and the ppm reading then falls as good product is diverted into the tank.

Has anyone installed the new Dessalator Logic Board (the one that actually rejects high TDS)?

I am trying to determine if it is just plug and play or if there are any modifications necessary.

Turning blocks,

Anne and John Hollamby <annejohnholl@...>
 

Having just completed servicing my winches I checked the turning blocks and found that they were nearly seized up after some eight years of use. The repair was quick and simple.
First unpick the splice to remove the line from the block. Remove the bolt in the centre and then prise out the two piece bush holding the sheave in place. Remove the sheave holding it over a basin in case the Delrin ball bearings fall out...they are held in but will come out very easily if tempted.
The bushes were set into a stainless tube which is set in another stainless tube which is pressed into the sheave and it's centre is lined with a black bearing surface, perhaps Teflon. Over the past eight years gravity has resulted in the Teflon tube working itself downwards so that it drags on the cheek of the block. I tapped it back into place with a hammer and reassembled the as new block and remade the splice. Bingo!

Regards, Anne and John, SM 319

I would also appreciate any experience from other owners about wind

We have owned our 54 for two years and sailed some 4,000 miles
during that period. Overall we are very pleased with the choice that
we made. We intend to depart on a slow circumnavigation in 2010. The
main issue that I have at the present time is to provide enough
alternative energy generation to power some of the regular load
imposed by refrigeration etc.

How to grease rack and pinion on a Mango

Tom is trying to grease the aft facing fitting on the bulkhead of the rack and pinion steering. Took wheel off, and he cannot get to the grease fitting  - he tried an L shaped fitting, too big, and also a flexible fitting, also too big.. Any ideas? Thanks

Relax chair in 54

Laurens & Rineke <laurens@...>
 

We found the 2 starboard chairs in our 54 not comfortable enough specially when watching TV or reading a book. You only can sit upright and there is no way to give your legs a rest. So we did some thinking for a solution. To our opinion we found a very good one. To explain this we added some photo's in the photo book under the name Relax Chair. As you can see it's easy to make, easy to use and easy to stow.
