Polar Diagram for Super Maramu

Zanareva
 

Has anyone seen, or had developed, polar diagrams for the Super
Maramu? I'd be interested in seeing them, if you have them and can
share them. I believe there's commerical software that there that
will produce these diagrams that'll predict how fast the boat
will/should go given wind speed and wind angle.
Thanks

Welcome aboard! I added mention of the Super Mistral to the site--it
was an oversite that this model wasn't added.

Why Super Mistral is not listed in Amel Yachts?? Too small or to

Thank you for the advice. I will try it soon and will try to find a large washer at a laundromat to make it go faster.

Hi Ruth
Washing the salon upholstery is not a problem as the fabric does not get
damaged by such a treatment.
I have washed mine two times without facing any problem. No shrinking no
discoloration.
You can use a home washing machine as I did. It is a bit long as the washing
machine has a limited capacity.
The only difficult part is to put them back as it is a bit tight and the
foam is not very slippery but nothing to worry about.
After you have done one the rest will be much easier.
Best regards
Erick MEJEAN

Hello all

We have just become the proud new owners of SM hull no 248, 1999, now named
"Moon Dog", our homeport being Hampton, Virginia.

Can anyone give me advice on washing the salon upholstery covers ? I have
machine washed the simple cushion covers and curtains for the bow and stern
cabins with very good results, but am not sure how to go about washing the
salon cushion covers that have a thin layer of foam stitched to their backs.
Has anyone washed these in a large capacity commercial washing machine ?
Or is having them steam cleaned, as you would do for upholstered furniture,
the better way to go ?

Thanks and Happy Holidays to all !

Ruth (and John) Martin

Dimensions Please

Ian Shepherd <g4ljf@...>
 

Hi,

is there anyone out there on board a SM or better still a SM2000? I need to know the inside dimensions of the space under the bottom companionway step. That is the height from the removable floor panel under the step to the underside of the bottom step, and the width inside the step sides. I need to buy a replacement bread making machine for my new boat and this is where I stored it on Crusader. Unfortunately the model I had is no longer available, so I need to be sure that another make will fit in there before I purchase

As Amel are on holiday, and Crusader is 3000 miles away and now sold, if you can help, then I would be very grateful, especially as the shop sales are now on!

Wishing you all a Very Happy and Great Sailing New Year

Ian Shepherd

ex SM2000 #299

ps Richard Tate ..if you see this, please can you remove the 'For Sale' message that you kindly posted. Thanks.

Re: Fw: SM showers

Hi Ian, thanks for the info, (thanks to everybody else also for their
inputs). Actually I remember you flying into HKG (Kai Tak), I am a
Haeco line engr and we used to handle your company, I recognize your
face from your website. We live onbd our celestial 48 in Clearwater
Bay Marina out Sai Kung way, it is really beautiful and some good
cruising grounds right at our marina entrance. We will stay here
after we change our boat, but not yet made our mind up what to get.
Your website was great, gave a really good insight into owning an
Amel. Hope you continue it when you get sorted out. brgds Peter

Hello Peter,

I have lived aboard my SM2000 for 27 months continuously and find
no problem with the showers. The later boats have a shower curtain
that wraps around over the door, and if you stand with your back to
the basin so that the spray is away from the wall, there is little to
worry about. I just polish the door every month or so, and
occasionally wipe the wall fabric over with a kitchen degreasing
cleaner. I also shower at least twice a day.

If I have any criticism of the shower tray, it is the fact that the
washbasin drain exits into the tray. When the yacht is hard pressed
on the starboard tack and you pull the plug out of the basin, take
your socks off first as the water tends to run towards the toilet
bowl and up through the grating and not down the drain hole due to
the angle of heel. Maybe if the basin drain pipe tee'd into the waste
pipe below the centre floor, the problem would be eradicated, or
lessened. Amel advise a max heel angle of 15 degrees for best
performance, which would probably avoid the problem, but as we all
know, this is not always possible to adhere to, especially when
single handed and having a wash!

As an ex airline pilot who often frequented the RHKYC, I wonder
where you will be berthed?

Best Wishes

I am about 2 years from getting a SM and am convinced it is the best
yacht out there. I would love to come and visit someone that might
be coming to San Francisco. In return I will give you a great tour
of the city and surrounding area.

Have a great holiday, everyone.

Hi Ruth,

I have SM 299. If the material is the same, Mon Selo at Amel says wash it in the washing machine at no more than 30C. I have done this successfully.
