Dear Eduardo,

thank you for your reply. Yes, I would love to see those pictures!
How do you connect the drive unit to the quadrant? and the steering position
sensor?

I think I will go with the same solution.:-)

Cheers

[Amel Yacht Owners] !2 Volt Electric Motor for 1984 Mango

Anne and John Hollamby <hollamby@...>
 

Message text written by INTERNET:amelyachtowners@...
<
Are you sure that the original motor cannot be repaired either by a
machinist or a rewinding specialist? We get too carried away in this throw
away society.
I severely damaged the cones and mainshaft on my Lofrans anchor winch
whilst in Croatia because I had failed to grease the cones regularly as
advised in the instructions. The British Agents did not have many of the
parts in stock but could get them rushed through in 5-6 weeks before
sending them on to me and the costs were horrendous. The Manager of the
Dubrovnic Bestsail charter company put me in touch with a local mechanic
who succeeded in dismantling it ( just about all the machine screws etc.
were seized solid after 3 1/2 years and had to be heat treated to free them
). This took about seven hours and he returned at 5pm the next day having
made new keyways in one cone and the mainshaft, cleaned up the distorted
mainshaft and made a new cone. He rebuilt the winch which is now good as
new and the cost was approx 300 euros.

Good luck, Anne and John, Bali Hai, SM 319

!2 Volt Electric Motor for 1984 Mango

dmrotek <Svhuntress@...>
 

Hi Everyone,
We have a 1984 Mango, Number 42, with 12 volt electric furling on the
main mast and boom. Our boom motor is broken and can not be fixed.

Does anyone have a replacement motor, or any ideas as to how to get a
replacement motor? We would appreciate any suggestions.

Amel is working on this, but having trouble finding a motor that will
fit because of the age of our Mango. Thanks for your help.

David Mrotek


Tempest

tom mcguffy <tmcguffy@...>
 

Tempest, our 1985 Amel Mango, is for sale. She is currently in southern Spain, but we plan to cross to the Caribbean this winter. We think her excellent condition and many updates including hull paint, complete deck refurbishment (no more faux teak), new sails, new rigging, Ultra Suede upholstery, Glacier Bay refrigeration, Broadwater stove, Balmar generator, 20 gph water maker and many other amenities place her among the top Mangos. Will deliver almost anywhere. For details send an email to this address. Ph # in Spain +34 677119763. Tom McGuffy

David,
In addition to the information I gave you about
winterizing your
watermaker, I forgot to mention that if you lay your Amel up in
extreame
cold, you may also want to winterize all of your salt water
intakes. This is
easily done by getting a couple of gallons of anti-freeze ( the
enviomental
type). Turn off your salt water intake, and take off the top of
the filter.
I call this the sea chest. Start your engine, and when all the
water is
gone, pour in the anti-freeze. When you see the anti-freeze coming
out of
the exaust, shut off the engine. Do the same thing for the
generator. With
the sea chest full of anti-freeze turn on each toilet until the
anti-freeze
goes in the toilet and out the discharge. If your anchor wash is
connected
to the same sea chest, run that also. Make sure the anti-freeze is
not only
enviomental friendly but non corrosive for aluminum, and rubber,
i.e. your
impeller and toilet parts. If you run your charger all the time,
it
generates enough heat to keep the engine room a little warm, but I
allways
turn off my charger and main battery bank when I leave the boat
for any
time. The bildge pump is wired direct to the batteries, so cutting
off the
main switch doesn't effect it, and if you do a proper job storing
your Amel
you won't need a bildge pump anyhow. If you leave the switch on,
then the
computers,clocks, etc. will eventully run the batteries down. This
also can
tell you if your batteries are going bad. I can leave my boat for
months
with no charger on and when I get back the batteries are still at
100% . If
I come back and they're at 90% they're gone. Regards John

Hi Byron,

sorry to ear that you would like to sale your nice SM2000. You can
advertise for free this sale, in French speaking Amel Sailboats Forum. I
can even help you to translate the hereunder advertise in French, but
you have to post it yourself in the Forum because questions must be
directed to your email, not mine. So the first action is to register you
as member (for free too).

Hi Patrick:

Thank you for the info on the new French speaking Amel Sailboats Forum.
I
wish you well. I wish I spoke French. It would make my relationship
with my
Amel and the Amel Factory staff easier for them and me. The Amel staff
would
agree!

We love our Amel and will not have anyother sailboat to cruise the
worlds
oceans as a couple. However after sailing our Amel for 33 months and
20,000
miles around the islands of the Med, Caribbean and Atlantic twice my
wife and I
have decided to spend more time alifornia with our grandchildren and
complete a
masters degree program through 2006. Then we will go back to sailing.
We have
put our Amel up for sale.

I would like to advertize my 2002 Amel Super Maramu hull #340 in your
new
Amel forum. I have been advertizing for just 3 months in Cruising
World, Sail
and Blue Water Cruising. Since you have invited ads into your Forum I
would like
you to put this ad in either French or English. Is there a cost to do
this?

My current Ad is as follows: 2002 model- 52' (16 meter) Amel Super
Maramu
2000. Pristine and loaded with 50,000 Amel factory extras. New cost to
day
would be over 600,000 Euros. We are asking 450,000 Euros. VAT not
paid.

The last out of water marine survey was done at Amel Guadeloupe in
1/204.
Yanmar 75 HP replaced in Hyrers 7/03 and has 655 hours. Genset has 1010
hours.
We encourage any interested party to see 2 or 3 new and used Amels THEN
see
Sailslady before buying any Amel. Our Amel is in better condition than
many new
Amels and most preused ones. All the wrinkles and problems have been
worked
out. If you know boats you know what I mean.

I would be able to show Sailslady in Baltimore between September 17 and

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Water maker lay-up

john martin <symoondog@...>
 

David,
Its a very simple process to pickle your water maker. The object is to circulate a solution through your system to eliminate the possibility of bacteria while you are not using the unit. To do this you mix a 1/4 cup ( 2 ozs.) of sodium bisulphate in a bucket of pure water (2 1/2 gallons). If you need to protect from freezing, add 2 litres of glycerine. Then you flush your system with fresh water the usual way for about 5 minutes. Cut off the main salt water intake. Disconect the intake hose of the water maker at the filter on the water maker maker side. Put this hose in the bucket. Take off the outlet hose (discharge) and put it into the bucket. Turn on the water maker at the panel. ( switch only) The unit will now suck the solution out of the bucket through the system and back into the bucket. Do this for 10 minutes reconnect the hoses and you are done. To turn the unit back on in the future, simply flush with fresh water for about 10 minutes and you are ready to go. Now to explain the hard part. You will notice that the intake hose is not long enough to reach into the bucket. add a 3 or 4 ft. piece of hose, put them together with a hose barb. You'll have trouble finding the outlet hose. Its on the port side up high and discharges overboard probally with your bildge pump hose.It comes off of the control unit in the galley, so it will be coming down from above. This hose also won't reach the bucket. I just hang the bucket up with a piece of rope, or you can add a piece of hose. Hope this helps you out. The entire process should take about 1 hour once you get everything sorted out. John Martin

Testing the waters

Randy Kilmon <drifter01us@...>
 

We are considering selling our SM 2000 "Drifter",
built in 1999 (hull #240).
We have not yet officially listed the boat, nor
advertized it in any publications.
However, if anyone with an older Amel is considering a
SM or, if you know of anyone else interested in a SM
2000, please write to:
drifter01us@...
"Drifter" is a standard SM of that vintage. It has
wood floors. It also has a "radar-arch" type dinghy
davit system, custom cockpit cushions, a KISS wind
generator, and a Carbe 10'6" RIB with virtually new 15
h.p. Yamaha.
Many thanks,
Randy Kilmon

be.
Gallant is up for sale. She's in England, ready to go across more

I destroyed this gasket when repainting companionway hatch with

With new gasket, I take lot of care and before painting, I protect

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Help !!! Maramu Deck Repainting ?

Jochen Hofmann <jochen@...>
 

Thank you very much Bob and Patrick for your helpful remarks. When we
finally get to the stripes we will sure go by them (including the college
kid or equivalent) but at the moment we are still at the teak (colour) and
white non skid areas where the gelcoat is at (or very near) the end of its
useful life.



Does anybody have experience ? What paint did you use ? I still have
"Interdeck" by International in my plan but I am somewhat afraid of taking
things from bad to worse .



Fair winds to all of you - it's good to have a great community having great
boats.



Jochen

I agree with Patrick, IF you are just wanting to darken the lines,
the little paint striping tool is the best. We just finished all
the lines on Hanalei--bought the striping tool at JC Whitney and it
is available online--
http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/ProductDisplay/s-10101/storeId-
10101/p-3196/c-10101/catalogId-10101 Make sure you buy the kit 2-
stripe kit (ZX155343B). You can combine the assortment of small
brass wheels to be exactly the width of your deck lines. The kit
also comes with an extra bottle, which is handy. I used Pettit
Easypoxy 1-part Polyurethane paint (Bittersweet brown) which is
available at West Marine and elsewhere and was happy with it. Use a
squeeze bottle, like a dish detergent bottle to refill it. I used
the helpful advice from Ann and Ralph on SM#160 Harmonie posted on
September 6, 2003. Preparation of the grooves by sanding, etc.
according to the instructions on the paint is important. In
addition to the "2 stripe tool", I would add one ingredient to their
instructions--a money hungry college kid who will work for $9/hour.
Total labor cost was $440 (I supplied the knee pads).

Hello to all fellow Amel owners.

I would like to address an issue many of the ones of you owning
older Amel yachts will probably face as well.

One day the time comes when you have to revitalize your boat's
deck,
i.e. repaint the white antislip areas as well as the "pseudo-teak".

We have asked Amel but their friendly response was "we do not
recommend to paint the deck" (Joel, what is your opinion on this ?)

Who of you have done so, what paint (or material) have you used,
and
what are your experiences ?

Presently I am planning to use International's Interdeck antislip
paint. Does anybody have experience with that product ? What else
would you recommend ?

Your support and useful comments will be HIGHLY appreciated.

Regards,
Jochen Hofmann

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Engine-Autoprop problem

Krassopoulos Dimitris <dkra@...>
 

Dear John,

Regarding the problem I had I am pretty sure that there is a propeller
problem. I have to dive under the boat in clear water to polish the
propeller. I will inform everybody if something changes after that.

I have exactly the same problem with the aft head. I will check according to
your instruction.

I am hoping that Dimitris will tell us whether and how he has solved the
engine problem, it certainly sent me under the boat to polish the prop to
gleaming bright with 100 wet and dry sandpaper.
On a minor note the macerator pump on our aft head started leaking after
about two and a half years liveaboard use. I replaced the seal with Jabsco
part no 90197-0000.
Doing this I found that the pumps in both heads had been wrongly assembled
and thus likely to damage the motors when the seals start leaking. The
motor is black and bolted on to it is the pump assembly which can be fitted
in two ways. The correct way will place the weep holes at the bottom and
the top of the motor and the incorrect way will place them horizontally as
my ones were. This means that when the seal goes the back end of the pump
casig will fill to half way before the leaky "water" can escape thus
immersing the front bearing. It is not difficult to remove the whole
assembly and correct the fault before any damage is done.

Best wishes from the new headmaster, John on Bali Hai
