Looking for opinions from the AMEL Group about Soda Blasting

 

Because I don’t’ know the history of the last 12 years on WASABI what was below the recent AF, how many layer of AF etc. I have in mind to sand down all the old layers. Before I bought my beloved AMEL I owned an Aluminum Boat and treatment of underwater where different.  I got an offer from MANOEL Yacht Yard in Malta to remove old paint with Soda Blasting of the underwater GPR Area. 

I don’t know this process and asking the group of their knowledge and how good/bad it is for the undelaying Gelcoat? 

Is there anything to be aware or specific care to know when doing Soda Blasting?

I know from reading that sandblasting can damage the gel-coat, is Soda Blasting same or less invasive for the hull?

Re: Want to buy used Genoa for SM

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Russ,

I saved mine.
It is about 35-40% used (but would prefer a sailmaker gives an exact state of use), need the bi-annual restitching.
The only issue, it is in Sint Marten (where it will have to be picked up) and I won’t be there for a few more months…

Sincerely, Alexandre

Note: I also have main sail in similar condition and a brand new Mizzen sail.

Can you provide the model number and company you purchased it from for the Bonfiglioli MVF44.

Also, what does the gear ratio for the main furler and outhaul furler need to be?  There are many on line that have gear rations from 20:1 to 55:1...not sure what I have on both.

Lip Seals and Outhaul gearbox

Mike Ondra
 

Some have fitted the outhaul gearbox with grease fittings. How has that worked out?

We have been trying to seal the top shaft with RTV where water lays to try to mitigate water intrusion and rust. Other ideas?

Also the factory paint job seemed to hold up only 2 or 3 years. Power coat or epoxy on the, what appears to be, cast aluminum?

Thanks, Mike

 

Rebuilding our outhaul gearbox, bow thruster, and replacing drive shaft seals pushed me to do an inventory of all our lip seals. Thought the list might be of use to others, or others may have additions/corrections/comments in developing a master, at least for SMs. Note our hull #240.

 


Re: SM main furler motor

Mike Ondra
 

Hi Dan.

I see you are SM#116 and looking at Bonfiglioli gearbox. We are Hull #240 with Leroy Somer MVA M33 gearbox but the reduction ratio should hold true depending on motor speed. Ours is 1:60 paired with a 3000 rpm motor.

Best,

Mike Ondra

Color number for SM2K Redline

Olaf Bauer
 

Hello AMELians,

could someone provide the color numbers for a SM2K Redline for the white hull, the red water line and the red stripes at the top of the hull at the side.

Thanks so much :-)

Re: AMEL 55 -2012 — Replacing CLIMA aircon unit systems with a schiller central unit

Theo s/v Paloma
 

For what it's worth, the aircon system on our Amel 50 is AMAZING! It is very quiet and works perfectly. The central chiller unit is in the engine room. If you can convert to it, in my opinion, it would be worth it.

Re: AMEL 55 -2012 — Replacing CLIMA aircon unit systems with a schiller central unit

Jose Alegria
 

Bill, hi

Thank you very much for your opinion but I would like to detail the situation further and request your re-examination

The Amel 50 and 60 currently come equipped with a central chiller system  (Webasto ) and the last 55 at least from July 2017 have also been equipped with central chiller systems.

My actual situation: My 55 hull nº 3 comes with:
2 compact CLIMA in the aft cabin both of 3.5; in the saloon one of 7 plus other 12 and in the front  cabin another of 7; 5 equipments of a total of 33,000 btu, but 3,5 + 3,5 at the main cabin are clearly insufficient in places like Greece in July-August; They are totally ineffective and extremely noisy.
How to solve?
a) Installing new independent CLIMA or WEBASTO equipment,  increasing power in the aft cabin to at least 12-15 000BTU and benefiting from the fact that the most modern appliances have about 25% more cooling capacity,
b) keeping 5 equipment and also keeping the noise of the compressors in the noble spaces
or
following the current Amel philosophy by placing a WEBASTO  variable speed schiller  (Webasto V50) that drains only at 2.5 to 15 amp, not exceeding 5/8 amp in eco mode, and puts 5 air handlers (smaller than the compact units)
How change all pipes system?
Probably the path of the current saltwater circuit can be replaced by Schiller liquid (water and glycol).
I will also be able to take advantage of the condensate circuit to make the pipes pass through the same holes.
And maybe I need more new holes !....

I would be grateful for your more detailed appreciation of the issue.

Thanks in advance

Can you

In the early 55 model they installed a top-loader

Re: Reckman EF90 Genoa furler

 

Although I can find nothing on Amel specifications, I believe that you will find that the Reckmann EF series comes in 3 sizes: EF-90, EF90-2, and EF90-3 and that the Reckmann EF-90 is installed on the 55 and a recommended replacement for bamar on the 54. 

If I were you, I would ask this question to SAV"at"Amel.fr.
