John and Anne on Bali Hai <hollamby@...>
 

I have downloaded some pics of a Super Maramu under construction.
They appear under photos under SM c. Click on each thumbnail to get
a bigger pic.Click on that and get a slightly larger pic.
The quality is not great because we reduced the resolution to save
time downloading and space on the site.
If anyone wants a larger pic at much better quality give me your
Email address and I will send it to you but be aware that each pic
may be up to 10 megabytes.
I also made a mistake and created a blank album with the same name
but do not know how to delete it.

Good viewing to all, Anne and John, SM319


Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Super Maramu on cover of Sail magazine

Hi Richard,



Joel Potter here. That photo was taken off Fort Lauderdale Beach.
The boat was TOOWOWIE owned by Lowell and Sharon Blossom. That's me
in the floral shirt on the port side of the cockpit. Autopilot is
steering, my buddy Ray Eaton is opposite to starboard, and we were
doing almost 10 knots. Billy Black took the photos for a feature
article when the SUPER MARAMU won BOAT OF THE YEAR- OVERALL in
Cruising Worlds 2000 BOTY competition.



Incidentally, a nearly identical photo also appeared on the cover of
BLUE WATER SAILING for the June, 2004 issue which was taken during the
same session. That was a fun day on the water!



All the best,

Joel F. Potter - SM 400, "MARY BROWN"

Is the Super Maramu on the cover of the latest Sail magazine a forum

batteries and turbochargers

asm283 <no_reply@...>
 

Hello

I have just replaced my batteries with a set of 9 trojan group 30s.
They fit perfectly in the old style 9 bank set up. As a bonus each
battery is rated at 130 ah as compared to 105 for the original
batteries and 115 for the group 27s that I previously had. Thus I am
picking up 200 ah from the Delco batteries.

I also had the problem with the engine not reving above 2100 RPM.
reviewing the posts I was ready for some major work. I called a
local mechanic Desi in Trinidad. He opened up the turbo on the
exaust side and found rust inside the turbo housing. He chipped away
at it and in 1/2 hour the problem was solved. He said that this is a
common problem with these engines and should be looked at every 2
years. It seems that sometimes the colling water gets up in the
housing and rusts the inside. I was amased at how much rust came
out. Learn something new every day.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] "Heaving To"

svcallisto369
 

Ed from Doodlebug
Thanks for the information. I have never tried heaving-to with just the
mizzen sheeted in hard. It sounds like a very simple and safe maneuver and one that
I will try.
The super maramu will heave to in the conventional manner with a very easy
and comfortable motion with the jib reefed to about 40% and the mizzen sheeted
in.
I have tried it 30 kts plus south of the Canaries on my way to the Cap Verde
Islands. We spent a fairly comfortable 24 hours in this manner with no
significant rolling.
The only problem is that you do have to get out of the safety of the cockpit
to rig a jib sheet to run inside of the windward shroud. Otherwise, it will
chafe on it, or worse, cause damage to it.
I enclose a photo that illustrates the problem. Running a sheet "inboard" was
not difficult but does require some thought especially in bad weather
I hope this makes sense to you. Let me know what you think.

Regards to all

MDL

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] "Heaving To"

Steve Leeds
 

Dear Edmund,
We own a 1985 Sharki (#121) and have hove-to a number of times in heavy weather. We have always used a reefed main and reefed mizzen with the sails trimmed to the centerline of the boat. The boat will hold the "correct" position of about 55 degrees in heavier winds but will tend to fall off (and roll a bit)when the winds go down to 25 or 30 knots. With 35 to 45 knots the boat holds the position well and is fairly comfortable (compared to sailing under the same conditions). On one occasion we spent three days hove-to like this in the Mozambique Channel with 20 foot seas and winds up to 45 knots. While not "comfortable" we were able to cook and sleep with no problem. Strangely, because of the strong current (the cause of the big waves), we were set about 75 miles against the wind up the rhumline while hove-to!

"Heaving To"

edmund_steele
 

S/V DoodleBug (SM331) has just completed a 12,000 mile run from
Kemah, Texas to New Zealand. During the passage we "heaved
to" maybe 4 or 5 times, in winds of up to 25 knots – usually
because
we arrived too early for a reef pass entrance. I had read in the
sailing literature that a ketch will generally "heave to" on
just a
hard sheeted mizzen and an e-mail exchange with another Amel owner
had confirmed this to be true for the Super Maramu. My experience is
that with just the mizzen, the boat will oscillate between 30 degrees
and 60 degrees to the wind – i.e. the "correct" heave to
angle. The
problem is that it then rolls badly in a moderate sea and contrary to
many authors glowing comments about how comfortable the heaved to
position is and how they will cook dinner etc., I have found that the
boat motion is extremely uncomfortable and sailing slowly in any
direction is to be preferred. It was suggested to me that the problem
is that the mizzen is too small to adequately damp the rolling and
that the traditional heave to method of a backed jib plus reefed
mainsail would leave the boat slightly heeled with little or no roll.
Do any other Amel owners have any comments or experience with this?
Has anyone heaved to in order to wait out severe weather on passage?

Buyer-Super Maramu 2000

gwollenberg <gary@...>
 

I am looking at purchasing the Amel Super Maramu 2000. I would like
to get some feed back from present owners. I am open to any
comments, suggestions, advice and/or opinons that you may have. It
would be very helpful if you could also add information as to the
Amel that you own, how you use the boat, lenght of ownership time
and why you purchased an Amel.

We will retire in 2008. So we plan on acquiring a boat sometime in
2006, moor it and get some experience using the boat and then in
2008 move onto the boat and start sailing to wherever. Probably
start with the Carribean for a couple of years.

Look forward to hearing from some of you.

Thank you,

Gary and Joanne
