airwaterice.com are in Florida. Te No 001-772-461-0256. The membranes are part no SW30 2521
I bought endcaps and the connecting bobbin direct from Amel.
The airwaterice cost for a membrane is $158. Same membrane direct from Dessalator is 298 Euros, ex VAT.... Take your pick. Ian Jenkins, Pen Azen, SM 302

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Sea Water Manifold Measurement Questions

Hi Garry,
yes, in French convention the crossed O means diameter.
this would be:
-air conditioning water pump: diameter 25mm
and so on.
What is not indicated is if she is talking about OD (throughull
hole) or ID (water passage).

The Windlass switches can be purchased from Amel at a reasonable

The rubber boot that covers the switch is seperate from the actual
switch. If the switch works but the boot has broken down from UV
exposure or use then just order the rubber boot. Last year I
ordered
several extras as this is a consumable that will need to be

Amel can also provide the switches themselves. When replacing the

Electronic Barometer

Ken,

I've installed a Weems & Plath electronic barometer; it'll show hour
by hour pressure history for up to 48 hours, in addition to other
features. Even has a icon of a sailboat heeled over that'll be
displayed if the pressure drops too rapidly. See at weems-plath.com.

Has anyone attempted to raise the heighth of their dodger? We are
thinking of raising it approx. 6 inches by cutting above the window
and raising. New windows required and would improve forward view and
the starboard window would open.

Managed to use a friends cleaning solution on my membranes. They have 1400 hours on them and were putting out 2240 TDS . !/2 hour alkali, 1/2 hr rinse then 1/2 hr acid and 1/2 hr rinse, rinse in both cases in chlorine free fresh water. I was surprised at how little volume the high pressure pump puts through when merely circulating water at zero pressure. I would judge it at no more than 100 lph.However,put your finger over the output pipe and the pressure built up ok
Having finished the fresh water rinse I then reconnected the hoses and ran at low pressure for an hour and then tried to use the pump in earnest. Nothing happened. Couldnt raise any pressure at all. No hissing noise, nothing.
Thought that it might be an airlock somewhere, this being the season of airlocks on Pen Azen ( see my Volvo airlock emails last month). So I disconnected the in and out pipes on the high pressure pump and ran it , several times. Still nothing. About to deep six the damn thing when I tried sucking through a pipe connected to the output tap on the Dessalator board in the galley. Then ran the pump for about 15 mins at low pressure and then at max pressure. Very gradually the pressure built and after a few false starts ( when the pressure was very uneven and cut out about 5 times) the pump settled down and started to produce at about 35 lph.Ran it for about an hour and then caught the product in 5 litre cans. The first tested at over 2000 TDS but the next 5 tested at 960! A result!It will do till our new membranes arrive ( Argentinian customs permitting). Anyone else had experience of cleaning membranes with cleaning fluid?
Just goes to show what you can do with your time when winds up to 45k keep you on board at anchor for 4 days, in our case directly upwind , 125 metres, from The World and The Rotterdam which have to be two of the worlds largest passenger liners ( The World being privately owned condos). I just know that if we dragged we would sink them both. I cant believe they are a match for an Amel. Better not tell my insurers.
Ushuaia at Xmas has about ten yachts about to leave for Antarctica, including Wanderer 111, the 50 year old , wooden, carvel built , 30 foot boat that used to belong to the Hiscocks and has done about 300,000 miles at sea including 5 circumnavigations. I asked Tees, her German owner ( had her 25 years) how much fuel he has. Well, he explained, in the main tank we have 20 litres.... but on a trip like this we do carry an extra 40 litres in jerries Thats OK then.....
Lent him our sewing machine to patch his old sails ( must be 25 years old tho he does have new ones as well). Makes you rather humble...

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Sea Water Manifold Measurement Questions

john martin <symoondog@...>
 

Dear Gary, As I recall the od of the main pipe is 1-1/2 ,the engine is 1-1/4 od,and the gen set and a/c is 1 inch each. The 2 toilets are 1/2 inch id or 5/8 od. I think thats right. If you make a new one you should make it out of copper nickle which you can't find except in 20 ft. lengths. If you do find a source for it,(small pieces) please let me know. I made mine out of stainlees steel twice. The first welder didn't know you are surpose to blow a special type of gas in the pipe while welding stainless steel for under water use. Lots of luck John

Happy New Year Everyone.

Does anyboy know the inside hose diameter (ID) or the standpipe
(outside diameter) of each of the outlets from the sea water
manifold that supplies sea water to the AC pump, the toilets,
the anchor washdown pump etc. on the Amel Super
Maramu 2000? As I recall there are 5 outlets of various sizes.

If anybody is aboard at the moment and could advise of the
diffent hose sizes or measure the outlet pipes (OD), I would
appreciate hearing from you.

Thanks for all the useful information everyone has
provided over the years,

Again, Happy New Year.

Sounds interesting. So what was the speed and wind? Why not just
