Hi Chrisitian:

Sorry but I don't have a clew. Have you contact Joel Potter Amel's rep in
Fort Lauderdale? Or look up Amel@... on the web.

Good Luck.

Santorin ketch drawings

christian_manivel <cmanivel@...>
 

Hello,

I plan to buy a Santorin ketch in the near future and would try to
get the drawings of it and general arrangement plans if available.
Do you know if and where I could find them ?

Thank you very much for your help

The Link 10 on my boat also failed. It is not worth repairing as a
new one is about $200.00 and it is easy to replace. The replacement
unit has worked fine for the past two years. Check your wiring and
try a reset of the unit.

Hi Vito,

there are no real problems to install 1 or 2 aft cabin hatches, and
it's a good idea to increase ventilation.

Aft cabin deck (in bed part only)is free of wiring, you can make a
hole in where you need. The only tip is to place a wood frame
instead of foam between 2 GRP hides (external and internal deck
side). Just scrape foam deep enough to be sure that scews or bolts
fixing hatch will be into wooden frame.

Think maybe to put 2 hatches in opposite opening (bow to and stern
to), but avoid to put them in starboard to and port to. This is
really less efficient.

Another problem is to have enough courage to saw into your nice and
fautless aft deck ...

Hi,
I hve bought AmelS.M. #53 in France and taken out of French register. I wish to register in Norway. Can any of the Amel owners advise me with the following:

To register in Norway the Maritime Directorate need the gross ton figure messured after the International convention of 1969. In that case I need a line drawing. The gross ton figure Amel give is 30,14, but the French messure after another Convention.
Do any of the owners hve a gross ton figure messured after 1969 Convention ? - or hve any solution to this problem. Fyi, in Norway they wl charge approx 1000 Euro to messure after a line drawings.
The boat is in South France.

Dear Mr. Glass,
My baterries failed after 2 years. You actually can
get the Delcos in the USA, I believe to the identical
layout as OEM. Try Ed's Batteries in Westbrook, Maine.
However, upon researching the matter, I found that the
Delcos are only medium quality. A batterymaker with,
it seems, a top reputation for traditional lead-acid
batteries is Trojan. They have more capacity and
longer life (it is said 5 years). These only cost
about $10. more per battery. You do have to cut off
the plastic handles which are molded on Trojan cases
(no big deal) and re-do the cables, also quite
straightforward. I looked into gel batteries (thumbs
down it seems for many reasons) and AGM, the newest
thing. Conclusion on AGM: twice the price of good lead
acid, same life expectancy. So, no go. If you wanted
the exact Trojan battery model you could call Ed's
Batteries. I bought 8 from them in May '02. They
delivered them to Lyman-Morse Boats in Maine. They
would probably have the record. They cost $90. each.
Hope this helps.
Best regards,

Re: Sonic Speed Transducer (Knot Meter)

We had difficulty with this type of indication for 2 years. After
having the experts check it out, we finally reread the manual.
There are many wires in the control box inside the locker on the
starboard side-under the catch all shelf. One was actually totally
loose. Resecuring this solved the problem. Of course we did check
all the other connections as well. But we did not realize that
there are around 12 wires inside the box. Lots of margin for error,
corrosion, and dislocation. Noelia-

Security

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

Most people make sure thaat all their ground floor doors and windows
are locked over night.
Most people are not so careful when sleeping on a boat and hatches
and more importantly the companionway is left wide open.
An Oyster was boarded by two West Indians in Marigot Bay,St Lucia,
on 14 February 2004 whilst the owners were asleep. The luckless
couple were beaten up, tied up and threatened with knives.
Fortunately they had enough cash on board to satisfy the assailants
who then left stealing the dinghy so they did not have to swim
ashore. The police commented that one should be wary of "boat boys"
going around on surf boards with a few bananas as they are not
always selling bananas.
The owners were severely traumatised by the experience but they were
relatively lucky compared with another couple who were murdered in
Antigua last year or so I am told.
Hearing this tale reminds me of a Swiss couple I met in the Azores
over ten years ago who were sleeping on their boat with all the
hatches etc shut at night as they had been severely beaten and
robbed in the Caribbean. They also were severely shaken and were
returning to Europe to sell their boat. It also reminds me of a
couple who were luckier in a marina in Puerto la Cruz in Venezuela.
They had locked their dinghy on to their boat and put the keys on
the chart table before retiring to bed. The next morning the keys
and their dinghy were missing.
The Amel companionway could easily be secured with a strong mesh
dropin screen to sit on top of the wash board thus providing air
with security. Similarly it would be easy to arrange some way in
which the hatches cannot be opened far enough to permit access.
The mesh screen could easily be made up by any local firm dealing in
security.

Sweet dreams, Anne and John Bali Hai, SM319

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Hot cockpit

Erick MEJEAN <maramu@...>
 

Like any SM owner sailing in warm area (mediterranean) I have been suffering from the heat inside the SM as the aft cabin lacks proper ventilation. Things get even worst when motoring or sailing with a rough sea as we need to keep all the hatches closed. To overcome this problem I fixed on the two deck hatches as well as the aft cabin hatches some Nicro solar fan used to extract air.(the bigger model). The result is far above my initial expectation. It removes the hot air from inside and maintain an acceptable temperature within the boat. It kills the stuffy feeling that ones have during such conditions of navigation. You may wonder what will happen when a big wave land on the deck? I went through that and no need to say that I was expecting the worst. Surprisingly although it has happened to me several time in some pretty rough sea condition, not a single drop of water managed to make its way inside. No need to mention that I'm using the Hella fan as well (7 Units in total). Last but not the least I'm using a tailor made wind scoop which fits the aft cabin hatches. I use it while motoring as it is attached on to the boom and while mooring. Ever since we have to use a light polar blanket as there is always a bit of air breeze blowing right on the bed.

With this explanation all the hatches should not open as always is a
possibility that a wave comes on board or that rain falls. It is obvious to
me that Amel didn't thought that this is usefull which is for sure. The Amel
attitude is that they are most of the time right so this is what we believe.
Even on an excellent boat like the SM2000 is always room for improvements. I
just learned that on the new SM the passarelle is wider than on the

hatches on the side is an improvement but nobody knows about it as an
