Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Bow locker seals

 

Danny I am sure A represents what Amel installed, but since apparently all manufacturers have cheapened the foam by lowering the density. This is the reason that I believe I would replace it with B profile. 

That said, I will wait for a final judgement until after Kent has talked to the manufacturer.

Kent, you should ask: Is B better than A in situations where the compression will be greater than 25%.

Bill,

Thank you so much! Your document confirms I am not crazy for immediately coating the exposed metal as I work.

I will take another pass at the areas that are weeping. In both of the weeping areas, I was not as aggressive about removing the fairing material and chasing the rotten metal. I am guessing that is the source of the newly surfacing rust. I will keep chasing these areas with a fresh flap disk and keep updating this post as I run it down.

Charles

Should I fully sandblast this keel? Or is this overkill? Is it wasted effort to strip the entire keel?

I cannot account for why I was told the rubber button was not a Goiot part, but, in fact, when I contacted Goiot France to buy some sun screens for the Traditional ports, they put me in touch with their North America Contact Bill Hansen, who sold me the sun screens. I also asked him about these rubber things. He told me that he checked with France and Goiot told him no. 

I just downloaded the complete Goiot Tradition Parts list and this rubber part #93482 Rubber knob for round ports and 44.22 & 54.32 sizes (x 2) is there...see attached

Hi Joerg 

Thanks for the information.

So you use your parasailor without the pole, do you find it easy to launch and retrieve without issues and what wind do from good from and up to? Obviously it performs better than wing on wing with a gennika and Genoa on the pole?

Are you happy with it?

Thank you again for the help

Hi Nick,

 We are ashore at Basimakopoulos Shipyard  in Kilada. There is no marina but an excellent, protected anchorage and good storage ashore. The village is a small fishing village where everyone is connected in some way to the Bas. family.  Good cradles, each served with water and electricity. Check their website.

Hello fellow Amel owners. I have been enjoying the Ionian Greek cruising ground and am planning to end up the other side of the Peloponnese maybe in Aigina by the end of October. I know there are a couple of yards there and was wondering if anyone has a recommendation as to which one  to haul and store ashore for the winter.

Steve, 

Note that Trim-LOC says it uses EPDM Rubber. 

EPDM is related to polyethylene...I assume that this will be similar to polyfoam. The specs state that "compression Rating Recommended 25% compression for the maximum performance." This is where I had a failure with the gasket I previously used. If you notice the weight of the engine room hatch, it will compress the D Gasket to more than 25%, especially if the center hole is large.

Maybe the one that Kent found with a 3/16" hole will be the best.


It will take about 90' to do everything.

Best,

Re: Rudder Post Conjecture

 

I would order it from Amel. It will be the right size (metric) and come pre-cut and ready to install.

Hi again,
im ready to order packing material for the first Tim and see that it comes in several sizes, from 1/8”-5/8” in 1/16” increments.  Which is appropriate for a SM rudder post?
Thanks,
