Thanks very much for the responses.   I am waitlisted  at cascais, Oreias and Parque Naciones marinas but I was hoping someone had a permanent berth anywhere in Lisbon and was not using it currently.  I’ve been told that the marinas sometimes fail to keep track of vacant permanent berth and do not rent them out.

We have the correct official sample of   AwlGrip Desert Sand here at Vuda Point. As you know the painters in Durban got the "Desert Sand" colour wrong on our new hull side stripe when we lifted the waterline in South Africa. Now that we have new sails to put up (with the new Amel trim colour) we will re-paint the hull side stripe with the correct  AwlGrip Desert Sand paint at the end of our circumnavigation in Australia before we sell.

On a different issue - the "Amel Brown trim" - after 8 years of careful ownership we eventually got used to (and now actually like) the blue floors, and bright colourful curtains, but  we could never quite come to terms with the less than appealing "Brown" which Amel chose for side trim rails on all Super Maramu's! Because of this, we first tried a white trim (whilst in Thailand), as Amel did on the last 10 Amel 54's, but whilst that actually looks very nice on the 54, it never looked quite right on the Supermaramu against the Amel off-white gelcoat. We had seen one nice looking Supermaramu with white trim, but later noticed that they had actually "screwed in" a Stainless Steel bead/rod all the way along inside the white trim areas, and we were certainly not prepared to do this.

Based on this, whilst waiting for weather in Durban, we tried painting the brown trim with an "incorrectly mixed/coloured" Desert Sand. It looks barely OK, ...but not great...... and so we now wonder if even the correct Desert Sand colour would look any better on the side trim than the dreaded brown? 

The original Amel "Red Line" series trim colour was never to our liking either, almost too sharp a colour we felt, ... but we thought it worth having another look at the correct colour which Amel chose.

Failing all, and since we will soon be selling anyway, we may well simply go back to the original brown, but perhaps a shade or two lighter? Has anyone out there repainted this trim in a colour which they feel is an enhancement on the original Amel brown?

The picture seems to have dropped off my previous message. Here it is again.


Re: B&G Hydra 3000 True wind direction

Dean Gillies
 

Wolfgang,
The picture here shows the configuration I have currently on Stella.  The heading data from PG500 is received by the master MFD on data port 3. I have connected port 2 output to the Hydra to deliver GPS and heading data which is used by the Hydra. This last connection was made by me when my GP150 failed.  My original installation by Amel/Pochon had the GP150 delivering GPS data to the Hydra, but no physical connection to deliver heading data.  You will likely need to find a way to make this connection. Hope that makes sense!

There are 8 NIB voltage regulator regulators (model 8RL3021 105-351 new in box) , presently available on eBay  https://www.ebay.com/p/18020353785 .  Although they are listed at $29 but they did accept an offer for $19 (includes shipping).  This is the OEM voltage regulator for the Leece-Neville 24V 175 AMP alternator 8SC3009ZA.  The 8RL3021 may have been superseded  by the 8RL3024S but its price is around $80.

Re: Canvas work in Eastern Med

Paul Brown
 

Hello Nick, I had a refit completed to a catamaran 60 foot by Lantana Canvas family in Marmaris and Gocek in 2017, they did 16,000 euros of work from couches, covers, bedding and awnings etc, I was more than happy with their work and handling of the project that we both work together on and their prices were very acceptable following negotiations and the best I have found in the eastern med and perhaps the western med also

Hello fellow Amel owners,

I am thinking of getting some upholstery and canvas work done for Amelia. Specifically I want to replace the saloon cushions and covers. The foam itself is beginning to deteriorate and the covers are pretty tatty.
So that would be a case of replacing like for like.

In addition I would like to have a winter cockpit enclosure made. I have looked at the NV website and their design, it looks good but is pretty expensive.

Next year we will be sailing over to Turkey and the Dodecanese. I was thinking that I might get a good job done in Turkey for a reasonable price. Not to mention the VAT aspect of ordering from NV in France.

I am looking for recommendations for, I guess, Turkey.????

Hi Nick;

One of the best upholstery guys we have run into is a guy by the name of Ebrahim in Didim Turkey.

He made a full winter cover for us in 3 pieces that has held up as new after 5 seasons of use in the Med where 50+ knots of wind are common. He also made a memory foam mattress for the master that has given us many great nights of sleep. As honest as they come, a physics professor and a good guy.

We also referred another Suoer Maramu owner friend of ours that replaced all of his cushions and was very happy.

Joerg hi

john is right Cascais anchorage is excellent, the bottom is sandy, very good and i spent there dozens of weekends. It will be uncomfortable with southwest winds, but the Cascais marina when the weather is very bad allows you to dock at the waiting pier.
I'll try in Cascais marina  to get a berth for you but next monday
What is the name of your  boat ?

Annapolis Boat Show--Harmonie Open Boat--Oct 12

Karen Smith
 

In addition to the other meet-ups around the Annapolis Boat show, we will be hosting an "open boat" onboard Harmonie SM160 from 4 to 8PM on Saturday Oct 12.  We are docked at Burt Jabin's Yacht Yard, a short water taxi (or dinghy!) ride from the boat show in Back Creek Annapolis.  Refreshments will be served...

Harmonie is fresh from a summer cruising Atlantic Canada so great cruising stories will be available to swap. We'll likely be in the middle of some projects, so the boat might not be in showroom shape, but it will be a more informative visit for all that!

RSVP to kls6917 (at) aol.com

Looking forward to seeing our fellow Amel owners (and potential owners)!

Re: B&G Hydra 3000 True wind direction

Dean Gillies
 

Hi Wolfgang,
I noticed exactly the same problem when I bought Stella. I’m pretty sure that my system was configured as original from Amel. (Previous owner did not change anything).

I cannot find out right now exactly what source setting I used in the Hydra, but I’m fairly sure it’s not 16.

BUT the important thing is that you need to make sure that the Navnet3D system is actually connected to, AND is sending out heading data to the Hydra.

This is configured in the setup/installation process, and on my boat this was not turned on by Amel/Pochon.

So, in short the process is:

1. Find out which NMEA data Out port on the master MFD is physically connected to the Hydra.

2. Make sure the MFD is configured to send heading data on that port.

3. Set up the Hydra to use that data.

I’m sorry I cannot tell you which port numbers to use because I’m travelling at the moment. Regardless, your boat may not be wired exactly as mine, so you should go through the process yourself.

Hop that helps a bit.

Regards
Dean
