PROPOSED GUIDELINES TO POSTING MESSAGES

amelliahona <no_reply@...>
 

Hello all members of the Amel Forum:

I would like to thank everyone on this forum who
has taken time to share their expertise on a host
of subjects. I have found the information most
valuable. While researching a problem with my
Onan MDKAL Genset on my Amel SM 2000 Hull
335, I was somewhat frustrated by posting
issues that weren't specific enough.

THEREFORE:

I would like to PROPOSE TO ALL MEMBERS some
guidelines that I believe will increase the
usefulness of the forum.

1. SUBJECT TITLES: Please compose a subject
title that is somewhat specific to your post and
includes some detail of what the post is about.
For example, a subject of "Help" doesn't tell you
anything and unless you are being attacked by
pirates and don't have time to be more specific,
isn't searchable. More appropriate would be,
"Onan Genset MDKAL431 Starting Problem"

2. HULL NUMBERS: Since many problems and
issues are specific to a given model and hull
number, please post your hull number and
model (e.g. Sharki, SM, etc) somewhere
in each post so we can determine applicability.

3. POSTING PICTURES: When posting pictures to
the photos section please place them in appropriately
labeled folders. Randomly posted photos clutter
the site and make searching more labor intensive.
If you have a relevent photo that will fit in an
existing folder please don't create a duplicate
folder. PLEASE label your pictures so we know
what they are.

4. BE SPECIFIC: If you are having problems with
something please list the model year, brand name,
model number etc. A furling motor for a Sharki
is no doubt different than for a SM. For a good
example of a well-composed and specific post with
a good subject header please see Ian & Judy's
entitled, " Hurth Gearbox Watercooler on SM Volvo"

Details count, we need details to be of most help.

Lastly, when replying to a long thread please
take time to delete everything the specific post
you are replying to. It doesn't do any good to
have a reply that copies 6 other replies, especially
when you are getting the posts via sailmail.

Thanks again for all the information volunteered,
please try to make it even more useful by being
detail oriented.

Kindest intentions,

Gary Silver Amel SM 2000 Hull 335


Re: [Amel] Hurth gearbox Watercooler on SM Volvo

john martin <symoondog@...>
 

Ian, you are right, the cooler can be bypassed by putting the two hoses together. I ran mine,( not high speeds) for quite sometime before I replaced it. Volvo doen't have the part because it's a Hurth transmission part. It can also be bought in the States at Transatlantic diesel for 120.00 US. Phone !-800-9279295. Also they have any parts you need for the Volvo, talk to Sherrie. I think you have the same engine I have the Volvo TMD 22P Regards John "Moon dog" SM248

Subject: [Amel] Hurth gearbox Watercooler on SM Volvo


Hi y'all, We have the 78hp Volvo on Pen Azen , SM 302. On the starboard side of the Hurth gearbox is a small 7cm x 8cm x 5cm box attached to the gearbox by 4 bolts. It has an inlet pipe to take the hose from the seacock and an outlet pipe taking a hose to the engine seawater pump.The hose on the inlet pipe seemed to be leaking, a few drips, with some whitish gunge around the jubilees clips. I assumed the gunge was salt but it was corroded pipe ( looks like some sort of aluminium alloy). The pipe was so corroded that the hose can only be attached with one jubilee clip. Needless to say, Antigua has no such part. La Rochelle quoted me 360 Euros plus VAT but I have got the part from an inland waterways marina in England for £61 ( about $100 or about 60 Euros).
Both hoses come off easily so in future I will slip them each season to see how the pipes are doing.
Volvo UK could not help me. Their handbooks show no watercooler on the TMD22 but the supplier who came to my rescue told me that the coolers are used on inland waterway tug engines, always running hard, and he reckoned that I could probably just bypass the watercooler if I had to.
Happy sailing, Ian and Judy, Pen Azen, SM 302, Antigua

The owner's manual says in hot weather the grease under the foil can liquify and leak down the forestay and onto the deck. It says "Don't worry about the furler, it's sealed"...yeah, right.

Dear Dave, i'm the owner of a Sharki, and I had the same problem,and I
think that it can occur also on a Maramu.
Some water leaks came in through the plastic grills on the port side at
the interior and the exterior of the cockpit; mine are for the air of
heating, and a little part was broken.Temporarily (and I suspect is
forever) I closed it with grey tape.

Hi Kent,
I was stuck unexpectedly with no crew in Charleston while sailing from Norfolk to Ft Lauderdale in January 2003 and I contacted Joel Potter and Ray Eaton the Amel sales and support representatives in the USA, both based in Ft Lauderdale who very kindly arranged an excellent crew/skipper at very short notice ( one day) who had loads of Amel knowledge and experience (Not a bad cook as well) and was an enjoyable companion on the voyage and shared the watches with me. He lives in Florida but I'm afraid I recently lost my PC with all the email history on it so can't even give you a name or contact number. I'm sure Joel or Ray can put you in touch.
Good luck

Re: [Amel] Maramu question

Eric Lindholm <etlindholm@...>
 

Dave it might be coming in from your windows. The wood trim around the windows on the inside is screwed in from the outside under/ and covered by the windows.These screws could leak. There is one screw that is not under the windows just aft of them. It may not be visible if the prior owner painted the cabin and painted over it. The water could leak down behind the wooden window frames and vinyl to the cabinets. The handrail above the bed is also screwed in from the outside. Other than that you have the hull to deck joint under the rub rail. Good luck Eric Maramu 105

I would check a couple of things: check that your cleats are secure and
not leaking (you can access the screws and bolts from the inside) and
also check the aft locker for fisures in the fiberglass that maybe
leaking into your aft cabin storage spaces (this is a very wet locker).
The stanchions seem to be attached to more a solid fiberglass
structure.If you have any HF SSB antenna cables going through the deck,
you might want to check that as well.I would also inspect the
plexiglass on the sides for leaks.

Re: Sharki 1984 Genoa furler solution

Hajé Weisfelt
 

Dear all,

My furler had exactly the same problems and cleaning etcetera didn't
work.

So I had the electrics revised at a local dynamo/ starter shop
(Rotterdam Holland (Netherlands) called Jongeneel. For a very
reasonable price (345 Euro) the took the engine apart and cleaned the
wiring. After new coating and brushes and bearings the tested it and
it is as new again. Bosch doesnt make a replacement anymore.

Then the gearbox. This was different stuff. The bearings were all
gone and so were the plastic parts wich separate the alloy from the
inox parts. Also the bottomplate was gone. So they had to make these
all new from raw. I don't have a price on it yet cause it was
impossible to estimate the hours of work. It's looking brandnew and
they have ordered all the new parts wich are still to be found.

I keep you all informed and will post the pictures in a PDF with
instructions.

If you want a real good and trustworthy workshop where prices are ok
and quality is top they are called BABO in the Hague Holland.

Cheers, Hajé

Sharki 1987 Genoa furler manual / specifications?

Dear Group,

As I am experiencing similar troubles with my Genoa furling unit
(motor stuck, gearbox tight), I¬īd like to ask, if anyone has a
documentation or manual for this unit - preferred in an electronic format?

I¬īm especially interested in the manufacturer, type / model, spare
parts of the electric motor, as well as the worm driven gearbox - is
there any information available?

Already contacted Amel about this issue, but received no answer yet.

Thank you in advance,
