-Hi Joe,
We have just bought a SM number 178 from Michel Charpentier in the
South of France.
Michel is a broker who mainly deals in Amels of every sort.
We are very pleased with him and have found him to be very
trustworthy.
He can be reached at: michel-charpentier@hotmail.com
He also speaks perfect English.
Look forward to meeting you in the MED
Michael

Hi Joe

2 years ago I was evaluating between Santorin and Super Maramu.
Finally
I have chosen a SM and I am very happy with it. Among other points,
You
have much more space inside. There is a a nice and well maintained
about 20 years old SM for sale from the initial owner and is
locatad at
the italian Riviera. The perth could be transferred with the boat.
If
you are interested, I could make the link with the owner.

How many times have you turned and turned the campanionway plastic
thumb nuts to open and close the campanionway?

We have posted some photos of a solution that we really like. The
idea did not originate with us. Another Amel owner made a prototype
and we believe that we have perfected it.

See the photos and drawings we posted in a new album
titled "Campanionway Latches."

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Wind vane self steering and wind generator gear for Santorin or SM

Robin Cooter <robincooter@...>
 

HI,

We have a Hydrovane on our Santorin Sloop which we have been very happy with.

A key point is that Hydrovane already have a design for a Santorin which takes the shaft down through the lower step which means that you don't have to lean right out to make adjustments to the vane and there is more security for the instalation. It also means that it can be mounted slightly off centre so that we can still use the after steps and passerelle. The other advantage is that there is no ropes ect going across the cockpit. We have our control lines fixed at the aft end of the cockpit and the lines can be demounted and stowed on the windvane when not in use - eg. no clutter! We used it on an Atlantic crossing with no problems at all.

Do contact us if you need more details.

Regards,

Robin Cooter

use of the boats rudder, especially downwind with strong winds ?

Also does anyone have a recommendation for wind generators, and whether
to fit it high on the mizzen or on a dedicated pole far aft ?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Bilge pump

ianjenkins1946 <ianjudyjenkins@hotmail.com>
 

hi, In our experience of living aboard on and off for 6 years the automatic bilge pump performs wonders. However, taking a tip form a Swiss Sharki owner we met about 20 years ago, we put the foot of a nylon stocking over the two pipe ends ( forward shower and galley) as they flow into the bilge in the engine room . We had Amel fit a couple of stainless pipes about 6 cm long to the existing ends of the pipes which allows us to fit the stocking on with what I call a nylon jubilee clip.
The stocking catches lot of soap, food bits etc and we just renew it every 6 weeks or so.
In due course, if you dont clean out the bilge from time to time a nasty smell can work its way up the aft shower drain pipe. You will notice this for the first time in rough weather, when you least need it and can do nothing about it! The solution, of course, is to fit a simple water trap to the aft shower drain pipe just as it enters the bilge in the engine room....another job I keep meaning to do...
I cant answer your first question as we have no intake cock in the forward head--it comes from the engine room but I think your surmise is correct.
Heres to a dry boat, Cheers, Ian and Judy , Pen Azen, SM 302

I just purchased a sm a month ago,and I have a couple of
questions.First,in the event that say the supply hose for the foreward
head began to leak at the seacock, how would the water find its way to
the bilge other than to rise to the level to where it could flow
through the shower drain?What if the flow rate exceeded the drains
capacity?Secondly,on my previous boats, I went to great lenght to
insure nothing got into my deep bilge ,but water.I was surprised that
the showers as well as as the galley sinks empty to the bilge.Does that
not create a potential for the bilge to accumulate matter that could
block the pump intake?

Re: Watermaker Membranes

Judy Rouse
 

We are not sure how to get them to New Zealand, but can tell you how
we got them to Trinidad.

Prior to a recent trip to visit family, we had the membranes shipped
to our son's address in the US. We repackaged them by inserting each
membrane into a 4" PVC pipe and placed PVC end caps on each end.
Then we placed the PVC pipes into a duffel bag which we checked as
airline baggage on our trip back to Trinidad. We strongly recommend
this PVC pipe packaging because Air Water & Ice does not pack these
suitable for international transit.

Best,

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Amel Santorin wanted

We have a Maramu and have sailed quite a bit with good friends who have a Santorin. The Maramu has more interior storage space due to the layout but the Santorin has a huge "rear garage". The Santorin does indeed appear to be faster than the Maramu, probably because the Maramu is 14T while the Santorin is quite a bit lighter.

I often thought which would be the best.
I prefer Santorin as well, because it's newer, it seems like Super
Maramu, it has the new C transmission from Amel, and it should be
also a little bit faster. But in my understanding, also from some
people at Chantier Amel, it seems that Maramu is slower but more
indicated for long cruise. I don't know very well but I think that
both are very good.
