The Amel sailing alongsides Ericsson 3 is Tinto III on their way home to Sweden after beeing sailing around the world. Tinto is an Amel SM2000 from 2004. They crossed their outgoing track just outside La Rochelle, France some days ago.

They are now laying beside us in Falsterbokanalen, Sweden. And it is, as far as we know, the first time two Amel SM is in the same harbour in Sweden. We are at the moment 3 Amel in Sweden, 2 SM and one Maramu.

Eric, the knobs are Goiot, don't know the part no. You may have to take a picture and e-mail it to them. The screws are tapped into the fibreglass.They stripped out. Just drill a longer hole through the fibreglass and put a longer bolt with a nut on it. If you want to do it first class put some grease on the bolt and after installing it, fiberglass over the nut and bolt. It will make it smooth and keep you from hitting your head on the bolt or tearing a sail,etc. The nut should stay in place and the grease on the bolt should make it easy to get it out. I think the bolt size is 4mm, like hard to find.

Hi,
Does anyone know the maker or where I can obtain the assembly that keeps the deck lockers closed. The stern locker on my boat has a broken assembly. I believe the knobs are
Goiot however i could not find the rest of the assembly . Also when i removed one of the screws that hold the assembly on i was not able to reinstall it. it is a very long screw and I wonder what it was screwing in to.

Re: [Amel] SM Cockpit Table

john martin <symoondog@...>
 

The solution is to sand down the one section,which is the bottom of the table, and prime it with some good primer and paint it white. It faces the sun so varnish will always be a problem. The part that is painted white will be under neath when the table is set up so it will not show. It is less of an eyesore painted white as it tends to blend in with the boat. You may also find it better to store it away under the crew bunk while away for long periods of time as its easy to take off and on. John "Moon Dog" SM248

Subject: [Amel] SM Cockpit Table







Has anyone completed a restoration of the cockpit table? Have you identified what finish was used originally? The side facing the cockpit had weathered (after 8 years) and peeled off in large, pliable sections. The wood beneath is in good shape. I suppose it is a polyurethane finish, but the wood is much lighter than the areas of the table unaffected by the sunlight (which are still in beautiful condition), so applying clear polyurethane does not seem to be the proper course. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks!

Maintenance on the Jib furler

I just did a quick "Google" on Muriatic Acid and it seems it's just another name for Hydrocloric Acid.

I'm buying it for 80 eurocents a liter at the grocery store here in Sicily and it's labeled: "Contiene: Tra 5-15% ACIDO CLORIDRICO." Don't know the "Tra 5" part, but I'd guess it's a 15% solution of hydrocloric acid.

And I do just pour it in full strength, although it certainly mixes a bit with the water in the toilet and hose and becomes somewhat more diluted.

I've also gotten it inexpensively in hardware stores where it's sold as "brick cleaner".

It, of course, is strong stuff with bad fumes to be used with caution - I'm reminded of the old ditty: "Johnny was a chemist's son, now Johnny is no more; what Johnny thought was H2O was H2SO4."

Re: [Amel] 2 Burner Eno cooker

Dave_Benjamin
 

Rather than replace the metal tubing perhaps you can convert to flexible hose? We got rid of the Eno completely in favor of a new Force 10. On an unrelated not I never understood the propane arrangement on the Maramu. There is a tiny spot for a tank in a locker outside the galley. The space is so small as to be useless. The previous owner had thrown away the tank so we had to start from scratch anyway. We put a tank in the stern locker.

Hi All



I have a leak in my metal delivery tubing to my Eno 2 burner cooker. I am in the UK now but the boat is in the Med. Can someone let me know the tube bore diameter. My boat Ocean Hobo is a Santorin built in 1994.

Also where can I get a replacement in UK?



Thanks

Welding should work fine but you should internally sleeve the junctions and
find a quality SS welder.

Has anyone replaced sections of the s.s. lifeline tubing by cutting and
welding in new pieces in place? I have several sections with bent tubing
that is gotta go and curious if welding method will work well or not.

Thanks!

Re: Self- Steering Wind Vanes

I fitted a Windpilot Pacific II on my Maramu, it works great unless the boat is overpowered in heavy gusts.

We have a Monitor Windvane on our Mango & it fits nicely on the transom. I still run the Neco system as I have so many spare parts for it but, would prefer the self steering on long runs.

Does your new quadrant still allow for the emergency tiller?

Redundant systems are great and having an AP behind the wheel, another on the quadrant plus a windvane sounds like triple protection from manning the wheel!

We are rebuilding a Mango (Annie M, Hull #1) and installing a Simrad RMD 300 with an AP 16 to replace the Neco system.

We would also like a secondary auto pilot but the aft end configuration of the Mango makes it somewhat difficult to install a hydraulic or linear drive system.

In addition, we would like to have a backup system that did not require electrical (or hydraulic) power.

By the way, we have had a new, one-piece, steering post quadrant designed and fabricated to replace the clamp-on fixture. We have the design in CAD format which allowed us to have the part water jet machined. Our cost was expensive (about $400) but it works great. Please let me know if you would like our CAD file and pictures (gratis).

Hi Kent,
Yes, muriatic acid is the answer! We pour about a liter in each head evry
couple or three weeks. Let it bubble up nice and brown - overnight is best -
then just flush it down. We are now 8 years on our hoses and no problemo!
Ciao, Craig

Hi Craig. Hope you two are well and enjoying the eastern Med. I'm "stuck" in Charleston until I can get enough time off to get her on up to the Chesapeake. Charleston's not a bad place to get stuck, tho.

Do you just use muriatic acid as it comes off the shelf or dilute it? What's the final concentration of what you pour into the head?

Thanks and Aloha to Katherine.
