Dear Richard,

You still got that furling engine?

Maramu Deck And Cockpit Locker Hinges

Howard Berger
 

Has anyone found a replacement for the hinges used in the deck and
cockpit lockers in the Maramu? As part of our refit, we'd like to
change the existing ones and replace them with more substantial hinges,
if we can find them (so far no luck). Appreciate any feedback from
those of you who have done this in the past.

Best regards,

I wonder if anyone can help me with information about the stability of
the Amel Maramu. Does anyone have the stabilty curves for the Maramu by
any chance that they could let me have a look at?

Many thanks

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Marina'a USVI / BVI

dlm48@...
 

So far all the replies have been USVI's so here are a few BVI ones going from west to east ? On Tortola West End Sopers Hole (right across from the ferry terminal) - Nanny Cay - Fort Burt Marina -? Village Cay Roadtown - Jomo Marina Roadtown Hodges Creek Marina and on Virgin Gorda Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour (where my boat was hiding from Ohma).? However as i dont know what your plans and your needs are even do you want to come out of the water and also your nationality - it is difficult to make a real recommendation. If you want the boat to remain in the water and be looked after i can for sure recommend a marina and people who will do that for you? If you just want to tie up the boat and cost is not a big issue and you want to be close to an international airport the Yacht Harbour Grande in Charlotte Amalie St Thomas has all you need.? Mind you you are picking a busy time of the year in the VI's so availability of a berth could be an issue.? If you dont mind swinging on your hook or tied to a mooring then Trellis Bay on Beef Island is a good option and is very close (walking distance almost) to the main BVI airport also there are a few moorings in Brandywine bay which is close to Roadtown.? There are a few others between Roadtown and Beef Island i think a few new companies have started up in the old Sunsail base.

regards

David

American Yacht Harbor, St. Thomas, in Redhook on the east end of the island, is a good marina. Crown Bay Marina, also on St. Thomas, is another good one.

Good Luck.

Hi, in St Thomas at Yatch Haven. Safe not far from the airport and buses are easy to get. Red Hook is another but not very good.
Good luck.. Richard and Joan on SM 209

HI Pat, sorry to hear that it is getting cold this early there. We are at the south end of Corsica and it never gets very cold here though we are at 41 degrees. We have yet to see anything less then 55 to date.. This is a very interesting place and we are very much enjoying being here. French school starts in the morning....
How is the boat coming along.
best to you both,, Richard and Joan on Challenge

Re: Turbo smoking

HI,
look at water mixing near turbo. I had ( Yanmar) a very little hole
and very thin dust, like smoke,going out.May be You have to check
with magnifying glass.
Than, first aid, is possible to close with a paste for metal.
For me was ok. otherwise you have to purchase a new mixer..expensive.
I hope it helps.

there representing Volvo.He told me that the relay that
supplies the
power to shut down the engine has a ground.I cleaned the
ground
contacts and problem solved.The relay is located in a
black,plastic box
at the top,back of the engine (towards bow).The gound wire
comes out of
the bottom of the box and connects to the block at the bell

housing.There was a small plastic connection with two studs
in the
middle of the wire ,I saw no purpose for it ,I could'nt
get good
contact through it so I bypassed it.Thought I'd pass
this along hope it

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] rpm/speed

Dr. Seidel <mseidel@...>
 

Dear Pat- Sundance sm349 at her last haulout had the prop inadvertantly painted with normal bottom paint instead of The Propspeed" I had supplied. In 3 month period my max rpm in gear fell from 2900-3000 rpm to 1800-1900 rpm with a big drop in speed. The feathering prop was loaded with barnicals. After cleaning it but not repainting, speed went back up to 8.4 and rpm to 2900-3000. Yanmar 75 hp with about 1600 hours with all clean filters by yanmar. You might get slightly more speed with some exotic bottom paint, but you are about in the right zone. Murray Seidel.

Re Spurrs line cutter: we have a SMM2 (#306). The Spurrs line cutter
on our prop shaft is the B model. Be vigilant about keeping the
Spurrs zinc up-to-date. It's small and easily eroded. The first to
go after the zinc is gone are the female threads on the line cutter
itself.
