Super Maramu under-seat fridge/freezers - stuck thermostats

svbebe <yahoogroups@...>
 

We have two under-seat fridge/freezers. Each has a separate analog thermostat for fridge and freezer. Three of the four thermostats will not turn. They are somehow stuck. It is not a problem now as they are stuck where we would set them.

Has anyone experienced/solved this issue?

Best,

Just FYI, Class B transponders transmit at 2 watts and their consumption averages around 4 watts or less.

Pulled from the West Marine specs for the AIS-1000 Class B transponder
"# Transmit Power: 2 Watts (33dBm)
# Volts: 12V DC (10.8 - 15.6V)
# Watts: Average power consumption 4W"

AIS CTRX
Q What power does my AIS CTRX use?
A The CTRX AIS Transponder uses 12 VDC.
Q Does my AIS CTRX consume much power? How much?
A In average less then 3.5 W

Both look like Saab units to me

The ACR Nauticast Class B transponder also claims an "average power consumption 4W"

Class A units mandated for commercial ships and transmit every 2-10 seconds depending on their rate of turn at 12.5 watts or more. Class B transmit more limited information every 30 seconds at 2 watts.

Their peak power consumption can be closer to 18 watts, but this is for a very, very short burst and the average consumption is 4 watts or less.

4 watts is 0.33 amp @12v and 0.17 amp @24volts. 8 amp hours for 24 hours (12v) or 4 amp hours/24hours (24v).

Re: [Amel] electronic equipment for my new amel 54

Sailing Vessel Bozo Cinq <bozocinq@...>
 

On my 54 I have built in Iridium phone and love it-use it for email, weather
grib files, phone calls, etc and fraction of the cost of Immarsat with
greater area coverage. In fact in many cases the iridium cost was less than
the cell charges. Furuno AIS which is interfaced with the radar plotter and
do not know how I got along without it especially in heavy ship traffic
areas-it is truly a must have item. Be sure you get the AIS that send as
well as receives as this replaces the so called radar reflects-an absolute
must! Get the latest Furuno Radar/Plotter which is Navnet 3D. I presently
have NavNet 2x as this system is interfaced with my laptop running MaxSea
software. MaxSea is not a very user friendly software, but once you learn
how to use it-an amazing piece of software which works seamlessly with the
Furuno radar/plotter system. I get all of my weather grib information from
Ocens.net-they are the best in my opinion. I also have a portable printer
from Canon and it works wonderfully-an absolute must. Be sure you have a top
of the line external broadband/WiFi antenna installed-a terrific accessory
when in port or anchored in the harbor with local Wi/Fi. Sure beats going to
the local WiFi café. I do not have the Furuno FAX and have never had a need
for it. I did have a connection put on the SSB that can be plugged into my
laptop to download weather faxes. Once I learn how to use MaxSea and the
iridium phone with ocen.net coverage the fax capability was ancient history.
On the AM/FM CD Player-be sure you have the additional ability to plug-in or
interface an IPod or MP3 device with it.



Oh by the way-you did not ask this-but I have the updated passoralle (sp?)
gangway on the stern of the vessel. It was a very expensive addition, but
one of those features that is worth every penny especially in the Med.



Hope this helps!

More on Deck Striping

svbebe <yahoogroups@...>
 

Greetings from New Zealand,

We want to update you on our Deck Striping project we completed about a month ago.

It took about 18 - 24 man-hours...actually Judy hours. She said with all of her experience painting nails, that she was much more experienced than me (I was glad she thought so). Here are some of the things that we think you have to do:

1. We bought a Marshalltown Striper Kit (http://store.marshalltown.com/product_Detail.asp?P=19680&C=C7083&D=700&S=717) and used ONLY the 1/8" or 3.2mm wheel. You can probably order this one rather than the kit: (http://store.marshalltown.com/productDetail1.asp?P=19670&sDept=700&sSect=717&sCat=C7081) The trick is getting accustomed to the striper. When you are comfortable, you will find that you will run the wheel against each side of the faux-caulking rut very quickly.
2. Find some comfortable gloves to protect your hands from sanding, painting and mineral spirits.
3. We used International Brightside Polyurethane and bought a quart of each color Green, White and Fire Red. We mixed about 2/3rds quart of each but the color was not brown enough so we continued adding green until we used most of it. We did not add any thinner to the mixture. We had read where Gary Silver liked the chocolate brown color he got by mixing 1/3rd of each color, but that it turned almost black in a few months. Ours has not darkened yet and is more chocolate than the original, but looks great...however a little shiny (don't think they make 'flat" boat paint).
4. Be sure to lightly sand each faux-caulking rut and then wipe with mineral spirits.
5. Have a small rag with mineral spirits to clean up mistakes.
6. Judy used a foam knee pad thing that was designed for getting on your knees while gardening.
7. We bought a beach umbrella and either tied it in position or I held it to keep the sun off of Judy and the area being painted (Judy said she could not see in the bright sun).
8. There are a few places where the wheel will not work and you will need a small brush
9. We used Brush Cleaner to clean the Striper after each session...then rinsed it with mineral spirits.
10. Start at the bow so that your learning curve is not obvious...it really will not be obvious to anyone but you.

You will be very happy with the outcome and will wonder why you waited so long to do this.

Best,

As of now I still have not heard back from him.

I still hope to be able to remove the tank in one piece and presumably remove the bottom plate(where I am assuming the leak is sourced) and then weld on a new bottom plate with a stainless steel plate of slightly greater thickness.

Re: Rp. : [Amel] Maramu - Has anyone replumbed gal ley sink to dr

Ken & Judy <goldendaze@...>
 

I built a corian sink with a drain in each corner, and the bottom slanted
slightly
down so sink will drain on any angle. There always an angle as Maramu has
fuel
tank far out on starboard side. The two drains go into the sump under
engine.
You will need to add a strainer to the bilge pump if you don't already have
one
and clean it every 2 or 3 weeks. We are also very careful about what goes
down,
but the strainer is still a mess. If anyone knows of a good soap to cut the
bilge mess I would like to know.

Re: Fw: Alternator smart charger

Jose_Luis Isasi <jose.luis.isasi@...>
 

Hi,

Most of these need to bypass the internal regulator, so if your alternator does not have an external connection (someones have), then you need to rework the alternator to have it. Talking to a experienced installer, the best seems to be ADVERC Mk.IVa (189 pounds), and also very robust as you can install it in the engine room. I have bad feedback (from same installer) about the Sterling Universal Advanced Digital Alternator Regulator AR12VD model (79 pounds) that works the same way because of overheating failures. There is a Sterling Pro Digital Advanced Regulator (125 punds) that incorporates a fan, but I would not put it in the engine room either.

However, Sterling has a unit AB1290 (219 pounds) that does not need to bypass the internal regulator and that looks very interesting (at least to me), because it also works as a battery bank charge splitter. It is easier to install and to remove. I need to decide.

Check here for more options and links to manufacturers, this a english shop that has good pricing. http://www.jgtech.com/alternators.htm

Re: Rép. : [Amel] Maramu - Has anyone replumbed galley sink to drain fwd 2 head intake?

Does'nt the drain from the forwardhead use gravity to drain into the bilge, will you use a pump to push fluid forward, what about the build up of grease and gunk. All the pipe work is accessable in the engine compartment for cleaning purposes, added to all that will you have to drill through every rib and forward bulkhead. Leave it, the system works

Hi,
can anybody help me. I'm lookng for detailed plan of the electric cable plans on the santorin. We want to change all electronic components to raymarine and now we are looking for detailed plans that we can design our new component cables and we need to know which cable can be taken out. We want to install a bus on which we can plug any component from raymarine now and in future. Maybe somebody has more detailed plans, which could be sent by email, if they are existing in an digital version.
Many thanks for your answers

Augusto:)

Please try do general search on "euros fuel tank problem", I found couple of comments in this matter, I've also had direct advice from Mauro with his bad experience in this case but advice he gave me was clear and very specific as well as time consuming and after all he was very happy with the final result. I own Euros 39 and looks like this problem is very common, but I have much more on my plate right now and can't get there without removing motor first.
Keep it posting or email me direct-I have original plans for Euros 39/1972 but not sure if placement of the components is exact on every model?? So far restoration work going very slowly do to the weather factor but fingers cross one day sh'll see the water again.
I would like to take opportunity and ask all owners of Euros 39/41 for advice and feedback in regards original components, it replacement and overall improvements to this great design.
I'm yachtie on the very tight budget and wold love to hear from other crusing Euros owners:)

Best Regards to You ALL !

Matt,
Thanks, I will look into previous postings to see what I can come up with.
I would suspect that there are certain differences between the Euros 39' & the 41', albeit no clue if this affects the fuel tanks placement/location/access. I do have the schematics for the 41'.
Did Mauro have the same fuel leak problem? On the starboard side?
I will keep posting progress on the issue at hand.
Good luck with your project with Darien.

I'd try contact Mauro by no luck so far...I hope he will give you good advice about this matter, in this situation I can only include in this message few lines of advice from him: "...In my boat I found the stainless steel tanks corroded (on some welding) and leaking. Unfortunately they are fiberglassed inside the hull under the cockpit lockers. I had to cut the locker bottoms and cut piece by piece the tanks to extract them. Then clean the fiberglass (sanding and acetone several times) and, after refiberglassing the bottom in epoxy, rebuild them in wood and fiberglassing them in epoxy. This was a real nightmare! I really wish you don't have the same problem."
Unfortunately I think I have this problem too:( but hey after all this is great boat and knowing her from inside out will make your voyages more enjoyable and safe.
