John and Anne Hollamby <annejohn@...>
 

Hello John and Annie,
I am 77 and Anne57. We use the system that we used ocean racing namely that one keeps watch until sleepy or tired and then the other is called up to take over.
It worked well on the various Yeoman boats that I raced on, the crew being paired off. It meant that the overall efficiency was kept up instead of declining over a watch period. It works for us even though Anne takes a day or so to aclimatise to the system. Easier for me having been in the RAF when it was overmanned with conscripts in the early fifties and one got in the habit of catnapping!

Best wishes, John SM 319

Thanks for the lead. Think that we will try Hemmings and other
magazines first. Have not been able to locate any source on the web.

On an other note, how do you structure your watches underway? Annie

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Dessalator 160ltr phr watermaker

edmund_steele
 

I have the new board and it does work as described but with one modification. The high pressure sensor on the "old" board has four terminals and the two that are utilized are normally "Closed". The new board supposedly checks for low pressure as well as high pressure and I believe that the logic now requires a normal condition of "Open". The new board will work if you simply disconnect the high pressure sensor. I asked Dessalator if the other two terminals on the existing pressure switch are simply the normally "open" contacts but they never responded to my question. Instead they offered to sell me a new model pressure switch for 215.23 Euros. This price included VAT and freight to Crete. Unfortunately they could only accept payment by "wire transfer" in Euros "Net of all Bank Fees". Pretty hard to do when you are cruising and you bank in the USA.

I believe that the new model switch is unnecessary. I think you just have to re-wire the contacts on the "old" switch to the presently unused pair.

Dessalator 160ltr phr watermaker

John and Anne on Bali Hai <annejohn@...>
 

Years ago there were a great many unhappy messages about the fact
that Amels instructions made it clear that the sensors should be
cleaned regularly but they failed to point out that these were not
connected to anything and so that in the event of a failure the water
tank could be filled with sea water as in fact happened to one owner
who only used bottled water for drinking and thus only discovered the
problem when his washing machine mechanism had been totally destroyed.
No clear guidance was given by Dassalator or Amel and most of us
resorted to using TDS meters to check the ingoing quality of the
water.
Dessalator is a large and successful manufacturer of watermakers and
as the problem only seems to exist with their "Amel Serie" model it
is reasonable to assume that Amel got them to supply machines which
were fundamentally flawed and neither company came clean about it
during all the fuss we made at that time.
That was the bad news, the good news is that I heard from Ian
Shepherd,Crusader that he had been using/testing a different printed
circuit board from Dassalator and that it solved the problem.
I have bought and fitted one of these and found that it was very
easily done without any prolems. It is a straightforward exchange for
the board fixed inside the lid of the powerbox of the watermaker. The
new board is the same size but totally different in componentry. The
plugs connecting the old board plug into the new one and although the
new one has a green terminal block at one end that is not used. There
is also a group of seven pins elsewhere on the board, these are for
the maker to fine tune it and can also be ignored.I have downloaded
photos of the old and new in the Bali Hai album.
The cost in the EU is 271.84euros incl tax and shipping and the cost
elsewhere is 226.84euros plus shipping.
Contact dassalator@wanadoo.fr for more info. I dealt with two
secretaries Sabrina and Rosyne who both write excellent English.
Problem solved.

Anne and John, SM 319

Short main halyard

John and Anne on Bali Hai <annejohn@...>
 

I was surprised to see it suggested that another line should be tied on
with a knot as this is very likely to jam in and possibly damage the
sheaves at the top of the mast. There are two solutions, one is to
splice a thinner line to the end of the halyard and the other, much
easier route is to sew a strong loop of fine line on the end of the
halyard and then join this loop to another loop on the end of another
line again using strong thin line. After the sail has been pulled up
again the bit of line joining the two others should be cut leaving the
loops intact for future use.
A good tip I devised in my ocean racing days was to spray the luff rope
with silicon spray which will make hoisting the sail much easier. But
be careful, it will also tend to make a sail fall down much faster when
you least expect it to.

Good sailing, Anne and John SM319


Supermaramu grounding to keel.

John and Anne on Bali Hai <annejohn@...>
 

I am puzzled about the theory and cannot access the site recomended
by Ian Jenkins.All the grounding wires seem to be taken to the top of
the grey water bilge tank and then joined to a strip of thin copper
which is secured to the rear keel bolt thus grounding to the keel.
The keel however is, if I understand Joel Potters posting correctly,
covered in a treatment to isolate it from the sea. Thus perhaps this
grounding is not the normal grounding but a connection to a big lump
of iron which acts as a very efficient counterpoise for shortwave
radio transmissions. Either way it does not last all that long as
the copper strip wastes away, possibly very quickly, although we
remain in blissfull ignorance as it is always hidden in the bottom of
the dirty water. I have not noticed any bad effects even though the
bottom 30 cms of my strip is missing and probably has been for years.
But then I am not transmitting as there is little point in the Med.
This makes me wonder about the other grounding connection on the
rudder for the SSB. These will be immersed in sea water all the time
as the rudder fills up as soon as the boat is launched. Has anyone
done a continuity test between the grounding plate and the
rudderstock in the aft cabin?

Just wondering, Anne and John SM319


Interphase and Echopilot forward looking sounders

John and Anne on Bali Hai <annejohn@...>
 

Put these names in the search box and see what has already been said
including my messages nos 1935 and 3068. Ian Jenkins rightly says that
FLS will be useful in showing up rocks but beware because the range is
very limited and no echos come back from slowly shallowing muddy
bottoms. Whenever in risky situations go very very slowly because, if
I remember my schooling 60mph is 88ft per second and so 60 knots would
be about 110ft per second or 11ftps at 6 knots and the range of these
instruments is normally about 75 feet and someone would have to
watching it continuously to catch the first warning blip.
Almost all cruisers in the South Pacific do not waste their money on
FLSs' but rely on tried and trusted eyeballing!!

Good luck, Anne and John, SM319

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] HALYARDS

Peter- I have replaced my mainhalyard with a full length halyard. I think they put on the short line inorder to free up the large winch stb. side of the mast. There are plenty of ways to sew two lines end to end and wrap over with electricians tape BUT it will not tolerate any tension. It is only good for reeving a new halyard through the mast which I did about 1 1/2 years ago.. . Murray Seidel SM349----- Original Message -----

Greetings, My main and mizzen halyards have been shorten. This seems to
have been done by Amel. Knowing that Amel does not do anything without
a reason leaves me confused. How does one lower and raise the sails
with these shorten halyards. I could splice another line to the
existing halyard. However, I can not think of a knot to use for the
splice that would fit through the access to the inside of the mast. If
any one could shed some light on this for me I would appreciate it.

My question is regarding the standing rigging. Both masts were
there
when we bought the boat but the rest of the standing rigging was
gone. Could someone please tell me, was the Maramu rigged with a
single, double, or split mizzen backstay? We think the main mast
had
a double backstay with chainplates along the cockpit coaming. Is
that correct?

For those that are interested, I've set up a Facebook photo album
detailing the refit. You can view it by pasting the following

Dear Howard:
The Maramu at least 1981 models have double mizzen backstays attached
to the rail. I will send pictures of the above mast attachment.
The main mast is only supported by one backstay attached at the
cockpit chainplate. That is 8mm and the mizzen backstays are
specified by Amel as 5mm. That is what we have onboard and rerigged 4
years ago exactly as it was originally.

Hello, all. My name is Howard Berger. My wife Lynda and I are
about
halfway through a complete refit of Maramu hull #144 we bought last
year. JAZZ is as Katrina survivor that we plan to cruise
extensively
starting in 2010, leaving from NY and heading out into the Pacific
(that's the plan, anyway).
