I don't know if this is the proper forum, but please re-direct me if you have other suggestions. We have been trying to get the "real info" on what will be required of us if we plan to winter in an EU country (we are US citizens, and the boat will be US flaged) after taking delivery of our SM "Sogno di Mare" in May. We had thought of Spain or Sardinia, but our trips to the consulates of France, Spain, and Italy in San Francisco have produced conflicting reports of requirements. What have other US citizens done about this? I have a pretty good idea about the VAT situation, but it's the need to stay in one location for more than 3 months that seems to be dificult for the consulates to give definitive info on. Any help will be much appreciated.

cutlass bearing removal

stargazer41amel <no_reply@...>
 

We just used a large pipe wrench and rotated while tapping with a
rubber mallet! No problem! Cutlass bearing was changed 6 years
earlier.

Cover new bearing in dish soap and wrap in tin foil and place in
freezer for a couple of days. Keep frozen until ready to install.
Unwrap and place on shaft. Being frozen made the ease of installing
the new bearing a cake walk. We have installed many cutlass bearings
this way! It makes the job easier.

Leaking pressure vessel, Bali Hai SM 319

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

For many months we have had a whistling sound when running water but
it was not audible when the freshwater pump started. The cause was a
tiny leak from a hole in the pressure vessel located outboard of the
hot water cylinder. This is made of steel and connected to the system
through a brass elbow and copper pipe. The vessel was badly corroded
and a temporary repair made by grinding off the paint around the hole
and applying several coats of Araldite.
An identical pressure vessel was bought for 11 pounds sterling in
Malta from a shop supplying pumps etc for irrigation and we fitted it
with a plastic elbow between it and the brass/copper fittings.
The problem was,I assume,caused by electrolitic reaction.
There is a 2 litre stainless vessel on top of the freshwater pump and
the one behind the hot water calorifier is 5 litres. I suppose its
function is to cope with water expanding whilst it is being heated
although there was only one vessel in the water system on my last
boat,an Oyster.It was one of the few things that never gave trouble
in nine years of liveaboard cruising.
Does anyone know whether this second tank is actually needed and does
it have to be so big as stainless tanks are only available here in 2
or 20 litre capacities.

Hallo Euros-Genossen (oder seid Ihr wirklich englischsprachig?),

ich bin mit 3 anderen an einem Schiff wie dem Ihren beteiligt. Die
Aella ist noch etwas aelter. Was wirklich supergut funktioniert an
dem Schiff, ist gerade der Autopilot. Es ist ein "Bordcomputer" von
Autohelm (Typ ST 7000) - gekoppelt mit Sumlog, Anemometer und
Windlupe. Weil das gute Stueck in Griechenland ist, habe ich hier
keine weiteren Unterlagen zur Hand.

Der Antrieb selbst ist fest eingebaut in der Wand hinter dem Ruderrad
oberhalb der Spuele. Unter dem Salonboden sitzt ein Geber (Kompass),
der verbunden ist mit dem Elektromotor ueber der Spuele, der direkt
den Seilzug des Ruders antreibt. Im Armaturenbrett ist neben den
Windinstrumenten und dem Log ein Display angebracht, an dem auch die
Bedienungsknoepfe sitzen. Seitlich neben dem Ruderrad ist ein Knopf,
mit dem man den Antrieb einkuppelt und das Ruderrad arretiert.

Wovon absolut abzuraten ist, sind Geraete, die aussen unter dem
Ruderrad angebracht werden und selbiges ueber einen Riemen drehen.
Das ist wirklich Schrott und funktioniert so gut wie nie, weil der
Riemen sich dehnt und durchdreht oder aber reisst und weil das ganze
eigentlich immer unterdimensioniert ist und staendig im Weg ist.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: questions from new Amel owner

Ian Shepherd <g4ljf@...>
 

I am really surprised that your SM does not have a steaming light. Mine (#299) certainly did. This may give credence to rumours I have heard about owners having to pay extra for rail level navigation lights for use whilst under motor. Again my SM had all these lights as standard, which surely must be a requirement in order to comply with the Rules Of The Road regulations? I urge you to fit a steaming light when you can. It will make you legal, and keep me happy when I am on a collision course with you whilst I am under sail and you maybe are not!

Now if only everybody used the correct lights at all times.......! My experience around the Caribbean the past two years is that not many owners know what to show both under sail and under power. I challenged one boat one night who had everything on whilst motoring which made him look like a fishing boat engaged in trawling whilst I held a collision course towards him from starboard, and his response was "He just wanted to be seen!" So much for all the thought that has gone into formulating a set of rules to avoid conflicts.

Enjoy your boat. I am about to order my second SM. I would not choose anything else.

Hi All,
Hi David,

I own a SM from 1995 as well and I am still very happy with the boat.
It is located in Palma de Mallorca.

Bought a 1995 Super Maramu three months ago. AM hoping some of you
experienced owners cananswer some questions I have.

(1) Fuel Consumption - engine (TMD22)
What is the recommended motoring speed and engine RPM for the Super
Maramu? What is the fuel consumption at this cruising speed?
Other friends have told enough about this topic (2200-2300 Rpm
cruising speed is perfect on my boat)



(2) Fuel consumption - generator
What is the normal fuel consumption of the generator? I have an
Onan 6.5KVA

(3) Battery Charger
The boat house batteries are not fully recharging after use.
I have reset the battery management system.
After one cycle of use (to 65% discharge) the battery management
system is indicating recharge to about 92-95% capacity after 4
hours
of charging (this is a long time it seems to me). After one week
on
220V shore power with battery charger always on the system is
showing 98% charge.
The battery bank has 400AHrs at 24V total capacity.
I have checked the battery bank voltage with charger off, all load
removed and after one hour stabilization the voltage is 26.50V.
With battery charger on voltage is 28.05V

I am concerned that as I cycle the batteries more I will
progressively loose capacity as they sulphate through incomplete
recharging. A new set of batteries were installed one year ago.
Can antone advise me what to do or who to speak to?
What further checks should I make?
It is absolutely normal what happens on your boat. BEcause of the
special and safe loading procedure it takes a long time to come back
to 100% (usually after 1-2 days on shorepower.

(4) Depth SOunder.
What is the depth offset for the depth sounder to display actual
water depth? (ie distance from sensor to water level)

(5) I notice there is an orange light or plastic dome on the top
of
the main mast. Can you tell me what this is for? It has a grey
wire running from it down the mast.

It can be the ancor light or if you have a TV antenna there is a
little red light showing on top of the mast.



(6) When motoring under power at night regulations state you
should
show red and green navigation lights in the bow, a white stern
light
and a second white light showing forwards over an arc of 225
degrees
("steaming light") about half way up the mast. On my Amel there is
no "steaming light" half way up the mast. In my experience of the
Super Maramu so far Amel appear to think of everything! Can anyone
explain why Amel has not fitted one? I believe I need to fit a
steaming light but perhaps I have misunderstood the regulations.

(7) The B&G Hydra system has no flux gate compass. Can I hook the
B&G system up to the Autohelm system via NMEA in order to share
compass data from the Autohelm? Likewise can you link the GPS and
radar? How do you do such things?
You are absolute right about the regulations. I think Amel is acting
like this because they think it still is a sailingboat even if you
run under engine. And it should be recognised as a sailboat so the
other boats take special care. I do not agree with this and so I
mounted a correct light on the mainmast.



FYI am currently in Mahon, Menorca. We hope to leave for Gibraltar
in a few days. From there onto the Canaries and Caribbean. Not
doing the ARC but would love to be in touch with any other Amel
owners crossing this winter.

Re: Diesel heat for the boat and reduced RPM'S

minaxi53 <no_reply@...>
 

I looked into Espar heaters recently, the cost to fit put me off for
this season, maybe next. They offered 2 systems. 1 for cruising,about
$5,000. The other for live aboard in cold climate, $ 8000. This puts
heat everywhere, all cabins, both heads and even one by your feet in
the cockpit.
I cruise in New York and NE area, although April and November are
cold cruising months, they are not $8000 cold enough. I'll live with
extra sweaters for another year.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Diesel heat for the boat and reduced RPM'S

Anne-Sophie Schmitt <nearlynothing@...>
 

It does seem that cleaning the turbo should be a
priority. I had my maintenance yard in Maine actual
tell me that this is standard annual procedure with
any turbo diesels they service. One other thing can be
the prop. Any, any at all, growth can prevent complete
deployment and reduce RPM's significantly. What about
in reverse or neutral? Same RPM's as forward? This
could tell you whether it is prop or turbo related. It
does seem from comments that many owners have had RPM
issues with this Volvo diesel. Regards, Claude

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Rub rail damage

Joel F. Potter <jfpottercys@...>
 

Dear Michael,

This will not be what you want to hear...but it is the truth. All you need
is a better gel coat man. Seriously, in the thirteen years the Super Maramu
has been made, I've seen a lot of scuffed brown rub rails. In preparing
many of these boats for market, we have always been able to find locally
obtainable brown gel coat that is able to be perfectly matched to that which
has been damaged. Seriously, give another guy a try. Consult local boat
dealers regarding who they would suggest to do the repair. It's a bit like
being an artist to be a good gel coat guy and sometimes the good ones are so
busy they are hard to find.

We don't recommend clients take spare gel coat as it has a very short shelf
life, especially when "thermally cycled" excessively as a boat heats
up/cools off every day, particularly when idle with no one aboard.

Michael, I've done these repairs myself, satisfactorily, and I'm just a
hack. A good guy will work wonders.

Good luck,
