drew,
i would not connect the ssb ground to the ships ground. here is some info for testing for electrolysis.

TESTING FOR CONNECTIONS BETWEEN THE SHORE POWER GROUND AND BOAT GROUND
Disconnect (
unplug) the shore power. Plug in and switch all shore power items on. (Make sure your inverter is off if you have one.) Use an ohmmeter to measure the resistance from each of the pins in your shore power inlet to the negative bonding system. All should be greater than 1 million ohms although readings as low as 100,000 ohms are not uncommon due to salt and moisture.
If the reading is low you need to find where the connection is and correct it.
Unplug items one at a time until you find the culprit. MAKE SURE THAT THE SHORE POWER GROUND HAS NOT BEEN CONNECTED TO THE BOAT GROUNDING SYSTEM ANYWHERE. Unplug your battery charger and measure resistance from each of its power cord pins to the 12 volt outputs. All should be greater than 10 megohms. Check any other items that connect between the 120 volt system and the 12 volt system or engine frame, or anything grounded to the battery. Check amplified antennas which might be grounded to the rigging and be grounded by the coaxial cable to the TV or VCR.
If you have any other connections to shore (telephone, cable TV), do the same test on them - disconnect from the dock and measure from incoming connections to your boat ground system.
When you have removed all connections from your underwater metal items to the shore connections you are well on the way.
FURTHER TESTS
You can also disconnect the ground lead in the shore power connection of the boat you are checking. Measure the AC voltage, the DC voltage and the DC current between the ends of the ground circuit after disconnecting.
If the AC voltage is above one volt while the shore power breaker is on but disappears when the breaker is off, then there is AC leakage on the boat. You can usually track it down by turning off shore power items on the boat one at a time to find the culprit. Once isolated it should be repaired or replaced. If all appliances are off but it still comes and goes with the shore power breaker, then it is leakage in the AC wiring. Check the shore power connectors, all junction boxes, outlet boxes, light fittings, breaker panels etc., to look for dampness or corrosion.
If the DC voltage is below 1 volt, a galvanic
isolator will provide the protection you need.
If the DC voltage is above 1 volt you have a serious problem that may not be solved with a galvanic
isolator. First check that the DC source is not coming from the boat by disconnecting all 12 volt DC sources on the boat either at the battery positive terminals, or with a main switch, but check that the main switch is actually disconnecting everything. Sometimes there are curcuits like bilge pumps and alarms that are intended to remain on even when the main switch is off. If removing all sources eleimates the DC voltage, then reconnect and subsequently remove DC loads one at a time until you find the culprit. Once isolated it should be repaired or replaced.
If the DC voltage is still above 1 volt after disconnecting all on board DC batteries and chargers, then the DC must be coming from the dock ground. This is probably being introduced by faulty wiring in another boat connected to the common dock ground that is feeding down the ground line to all the other boats. The best way to isolate this problem is to wait until the other owners are away, or
liveaboards have gone to work, and disconnect their shore power cords (after first turning off the dock breaker) one at a time until the voltage goes away. Please remember to replace them and restore power as you go. Having isolated the culprit, you have a public relations problem to convince the owner that he is not only risking damage to his own boat, but to all the other boats on the dock. Showing how disconnecting their shore power cord makes the DC voltage reading go away should convince them.
The DC current should be below 20
milliamps, +/- depending on the size and type of boat. Significantly higher readings indicate active galvanic action. Compare this reading to the current flowing with a galvanic isolator in the ground circuit to verify that it is providing protection.
There are other sources of electrolysis that you can't correct. The boats each side of you in the marina may be connected together through the dock ground lead and one may be eating up the
zincs rapidly on the other. If your boat sits between them, this current may take a short cut by going in an item near one boat, and exiting via your zinc near the other. This will eat up your zinc too even though you are not connected to them. The best solution here us to use zinc fish while you are at the dock. They are large lumps of zinc, often cast in the shape of a fish, that are cheaper and easier to replace than the zincs on you rudder.
The "fish" come with a copper wire already attached which is also used to hang them in the water. They have an alligator clip on the end of the wire and this should be connected to the negative bonding circuit on your boat. If it is not conveniently available in the cockpit in the vicinity of the prop, you might consider installing a stainless bolt for clipping it to, with the head of the bolt inside the deck connected to the negative bonding system. i connected mine to the screw clamp in the
staboard cockpit locker at the fuel fill ground wire..

Drew,
We have setup up several SSB's on Amel's and always
run a copper foil from the ground side of the ant.
tuner to the rudder ground plate. This gives an
earthen ground that works very well.
Regarding any issues with the bronze plate and
electrolysis, that is a whole other subject. My GUESS
is that you've got stray current in on board. I'd get
the volt meter out and start looking before you have
bigger issues.

Onan Gen Set Replancement

richard03801 <richard03801@...>
 

When we got our boat SM 209 we had some issues with the gen set, it smoked and the
owners before us claimed it to be bad injectors, taking them at their word we bought the
boat replaced the injectors and only to find the gen set really needed a valve job and rings.
With 2700 hours plus on it and oil like tar we decided to replace the thing...
Cummis gets US 12,000 $ for theirs, we went with Bata Marine using an 1105 Kubota to
drive a 220 v 50 cyc gen set at 1500 rpm works a treat. Doing the removal and insall was
easy and it runs great. The people at Bata are great to work with.
Bata is a great option if you need a replacement gen set.
Fair Winds to all

Re: Maramu fuel tank

amarsini <alberto.marsini@...>
 

Unfortunately I don't know how the Maramu fuel tank is but I know
very well Sharki's tank.
This winter we had a very big refurbishing of our Sharki nr. 144 and
we put the fuel tank on the land, out of the boat.
The Sharki has the fuel tank on a side of the engine inside the
boat, along the wall between the engine and the passageway to the
rear cabine.
Its a 340 lt tank, it was washed and shaked several time but all was
made on the land. It's quite simple to bring out of the boat, trough
the main door, and when it went back into the boat a new covering
was made.

I hope this will help.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re:Maramu fuel tank

Jim Dernehl <jim.dernehl@...>
 

Jochen
You are correct, that the lack of access ports in these well made
stainless steel tanks must be addressed at some point on every boat.
Diesel will shed crud---living and dead---that must be removed. I
addressed this issue on my Amel by having a series of access ports cut
in the lower part of the tanks between each baffle----about 4-5 ports
were cut. Each port is large enough to reach through with a brush and
vacuum hose. The fellow who did the work for me claimed to pull from the
tank about 12 gallons of crud accumulated over a 9 year period. Next
time I am at the boat, I will take some pictures and send them on with
dimensions. It is very important to seal these ports with gasket and
solid sections of stainless steel that will take the normal strain of
sailing with out leaking.

Re: Maramu fuel tank

billklein48 <sidecar1@...>
 

In one of the recent boat magazines: either Latitudes and Attitudes
or Passagemaker, there was an article on the subject of fuel
polishing systems and installation of inspection ports in existing
tanks. On a metal tank as on my Maramu it would be a fairly easy
installation to put in one or two inspection ports. The fuel level
would have to lower than the port(s) for installation of course. The
retro-fitted ports have an exterior metal bezel and I believe a split
reinforcement to be installed inside the tank to retain a gasket
seal. Perhaps someone out there could remember which magazine it was
from. I dont have space to save old mags.

Can someone give advice on how to inspect, clean/flush the Maramu

Hi !
Maramu fuel tank hasn´t any possibility of inspection. Because of
internal baffle you cannot clean the whole floor but only the portion
under the feeding hole.This is the most important area, because it is
the deepest and where the outlet pipe is welded.
A rubber hose of one inch introduced thru the feeding hole, long enough
to touch the floor, connected to the inlet of a pump, can do the job.
Because a rubber hose is never strait, if you turn it continously you
can clean a wider surface.
This is what I have done in the past (with satisfactory results) but in
the near future I will install in the opposite side of the hull a
filtered day tank.
I have the drowing of the tank on board and at the moment I am on land
in Italy while the boat is on a yard in Cartagena(Colombia). If you
aren´t in a hurry I can send it to you in November when I´ll be back on
board.

In our 46 we found no access ports. We used a fuel
polishing firm to come in and pump out the tank.
Flush it and pump it again. After three flushing and
a bit of air pressue to pruge the lines ( filters line
removed and of course a change of filters and
bleeding) we got the dirt and water out. We then
installed a dual filter system so if one goes full we
can switch and keep going while we change filters..

Good luck

Re: Maramu fuel tank

To the best of my knowledge this is one of the flaws in the Maramu design -
there isn't any.



We have the same issue on our Blue Song - so far fortunately it hasn't
become an issue !



Has anyone had an inspection opening made for the Maramu fuel tank ?



Any advice would be greatly appreciated !



Fair Winds,
