The box has a 220 volt connector, the one on the left with the male pin for protective conductor and the 2 female for current and mass, and a 12 volt connector on the right for the italien connector.



This italien connector plug is rarely to get in these days.
In the middle is the fuse.

I have been for 6 years in Monastir, Tunisia.
There are 2 shipyards: One in the marina with a travellift of 20 tons and another in the fishers port (Port de Peches) with a larger travellift.
If you are able to tell them exactly what you want they do it very well or you do it yourself (no problem at all).
But the biggest advantage over any other place in the mediterranian are the unbeatable prices. A berth floating or on the hard more than 3-times cheaper than anywhere else.
Diesel fuel 3-times cheaper, alcoholics (beer, wine) nearly some prices than in Europe but food and restaurants very cheap. Best place for fish and other sea food.
The Marina Monastir is camera controlled. Boats may stay without problems for 2 years (after 2 years leave Tunisia for a short trip to e.g. Pantelleria and come back for next 2 years).

I would highly recommend Basimakopoulos shipyard in Kilada on Peloponnes.  Competent, nice people doing work at a reasonable price.  And the location is very safe from freak winds and thieves.  

Re: Recommendations for winter on the hard in S. Italy or Greece

Joerg Esdorn
 

To reinforce what Bill is saying:  don’t go to the shipyard in Marina di Ragusa. It’s the worst experience I’ve had in decades.   And I would go further.  If you want any work done on your boat, don’t go to Marina di Ragusa because the marina prohibits all work being done on your boat - including by yourself - unless it’s done by the incompetent people of the shipyard.

Hi Theo

We’ve acted on Bill’s recommendation to lift out in Malta this winter. 

We’ve been in Preveza, Greece for 2 winters (latterly with the Amel). We were in Cleopatra Marina which is highly organised but in my experience can be a little ‘officious’ about who works on your boat. You may find Ionion (sic) Marina next door is a little more relaxed. In my opinion, they’re both good value at approx €3k. Aktio is the third Marina there - reputedly more relaxed in every way. The Greek tepai tax won’t be payable while you’re ashore (but you’ll pay for a month at c€100 on entry no matter if it’s just a few days before lift, plus an annual Dekpa at €50)

Malta is a little more expensive at circa €4K but I’m seeking a better choice of consistent quality in engineering, electronic and rigging skills for several winter projects. And direct winter flights are helpful. 

We had an offer from Marina di Ragusa at €2,700 and would probably like to spend a winter afloat there in the future. 

There are plenty of Amel owners who’ve experienced all of the above and will have great first hand knowledge. 

Wishing you well with your decision making and I suggest you might want to move very quickly - certainly the Greek marinas may tell you’re they’re largely booked (I’m at Kalamata right now, which could be an excellent choice but my neighbours just told me there’s currently no winter space - but things are often ‘fluid’ in this part of the world). If you end up in Preveza please ask me for engineer recommendations - I’ve good and bad experiences to share privately if that’s helpful.

Hi Matt

In my experience, the Preveza (Greece) marinas have required a deposit of 10% up front (ie on reservation) and then the lift out and scrub payment has been charged on lift, with the balance invoiced and paid just prior to the launch ie on departure. 

Manoel Island, Malta, with whom Bill R has negotiated Yacht School client discounts, has not requested a deposit to confirm the reservation.

Re: Upper C-Drive oil leak

Craig & Katherine Briggs SN 68 Sangaris Tropic Isle Harbor, FL
 

Hi Eamonn,
    Glad you found the leak.  Yes, the 60-90-10 is a generic rotary shaft seal (aka lip seal), any brand is fine like SKF, Parker Hannefin, etc. and no, no special features are needed (ie., a stainless steel garter spring is not needed). You can get either a single lip or a double lip if that's all they've got (the 2nd lip is just a dirt barrier and can't hurt, but is not needed here). 
This can most certainly be done in the water. 
    You may not have much success with the vacuum oil pump, other then emptying the reservoir, which you can do, perhaps more easily, by removing the reservoir's bottom hose from the C-drive's housing and draining the oil into a container. There will still be some dripping when you remove the old seal so just bunch some rags below it.
    Hope I didn't put you off with talk of hand sledge and chisels-as-wedges - this is really a pretty easy job. You might want to see if it's in your DIY comfort zone by loosening the bolts on your Vetus coupling and seeing if the coupling is free to slide a fraction fore-and-aft on the C-drive shaft. That's half the battle. If it's free, then loosen the metal retaining ring that sits outside of the lip seal - it's got a small bolt clamping it to the shaft.  If that wiggles free you're good to go. If those are frozen, maybe go ahead with your mechanic.
    "Scooting" the engine back is just removing the four engine mounting bolts - no need to remove shift, throttle, fuel, water, or air connections - just four bolts. You'll want to use long extensions on your socket wrench and an "old man" extension pipe for the ratchet handle to give more leverage.
    Then run a stout line between you primaries and through the engine's lifting ring, apply some tension to unweight the engine (don't pick it up - just unweight it), "scoot" it back and ... Bob's your Uncle.
The whole project should take 3 hours and 47 minutes. 😜
Good luck with it!

There are many advantages at Manoel Island including: security, great value, excellent craftsmen and many specialty shops like woodworking, metal, safety, etc. You will not regret it.

Re: Upper C-Drive oil leak

Eamonn Washington
 

Many thanks for all the hints and suggestions. The oil leak is slower than I had said; about a fifth of the oil between the Max and Min mark leaked and it drips a drop every 3 or 4 hours when the engine is off.  I identified the source of the leak as being between the part (coupling?) that you can rotate by hand when in neutral between the reverse gearbox and the C-drive, right against the C-drive.

Craig, it does sound like the upper seal.  If so I would need a mechanic as scooting the engine back a bit is beyond my capabilities.  Can this be done with the boat in the water?  (I do have a vacuum oil pump.)  Will any “60-90-10 single lip rotary shaft seal” do, or are there additional requirements when ordering it?

This year, my fifth of SM ownership, has had more things go wrong than previous years despite a fairly full preventative maintenance program.  8 pumps failed or required major service since April, as well as a major generator failure.  I do sometimes ask myself, when will it all end?

Re: Upper C-Drive oil leak

Eamonn Washington
 

Many thanks for all of the suggestions and hints.  The oil leaks slower than I said and a drip every 4 hours or so also comes out when the engine is off.  The total leak in 10 days is about a fifth of the way between the Max and Min marks in the reservoir.  I identified the source of the leak: it is the junction of the part (coupling?) that you can rotate by hand when in neutral between the reverse gearbox and the upper C-drive, right against the C-drive. 

Craig, it sounds like this is the upper shaft seal you mentioned.  The procedure you described (scoot the engine back a bit) is beyond my capabilities, so I will have to get a mechanic.  Can the procedure be done with the boat in the water?  (I have a vacuum pump to suck the oil out.). Is the 60-90-10 seal easy to find? Any additional specifications for it (temperature etc)?  It would have been cheaper to install a rope cutter....

I really appreciate all the help.  This year the maintenance time has been high.  I had 8 pumps fail, needing replacing or servicing, and 2 major problems with the generator, as well as preparing the boat for my first Ocean crossing ever (Atlantic early December), so I have been very busy ... like the rest of you I guess.

They are talking about your knot meter transducer where it goes through the hull bottom. Don't know if you have a paddlewheel style, but that's the bit. Remove the paddlewheel, like you would do to clean it and stick the humidifier drain hose through the hole. Wrap it in cloth to keep bugs out. If you have a sonic speed, then your won't have a thru-hull fitting, but you can pull out your depth sounder transducer instead and use that thru-hull hole.

Also considering a dehumidifier, but need to find somewhere to drain the fluid. Back home in Sydney I use one in another boat (because of wet racing sails, not cold damp weather) and it drains down the galley sink.
However on the Amel it seems a bit crazy to put the fluid into the bilge, then have to rely on the bulge pump!
