Sterilize the watermaker

Duane Siegfri
 

I have the Duo60 watermaker, and we're getting ready to leave the boat for 3 months in Grenada.  I planned on sterililzing the watermaker with Sodium Metabisulfite (SM).  I also have the sterilizing cartridge.

The problem is I don't know how much of the SM to put in the cartridge.  The Dessalator instructions say to put the whole package in, but the SM I have is from a bulk supplier, so this is not a Dessalator package.

The instructions on the package of SM I have says to use 2 oz per gallon of water to sanitize.  The Dessalator instructions (for the bucket method) says to combine the package of SM with 8 litres of water (about 2 gallons).  So if it's only a math problem there should be about 4 oz of SM in the package...which means I should put 4 oz in the sterililzing cartridge.  

Does this sound correct to those of you who have done this deed?

Thanks for the help!

Thanks to all for your suggestions for wheel enhancements. I’m torn between ordering a leather kit from boat leather, versus proceeding along the lines of Annsofie’s decorative braiding. Annsofie, how long have you had it? Does it hold up well?

We did a similar project on our companionway handrail. 

Thanks as always

Re: More than you ever wanted to know about Amel steering

Danny and Yvonne SIMMS
 

Hi Joel;

this may explain my problem. I got a new wheelcover from Amel for the standard SM wheel. Did not fit.It was clearly made for a smaller diameter wheel. When we were at Amel in La Rochelle I took it up with Maud. They gave me another saying this is the one!!!!

I came home and it was the same. Amel insist it is the right one, but it aint, not for my wheel. It is a narrow spoke type and has the Henri signed cover for the center boss so it is an Amel wheel. Maud told me I just wasnt using the right technique but perhaps you have given me the answer.

Regards

Danny

Thanks Ann Sophie. I vaguely remember that after the composite wheel like the one on your boat was introduced, Amel got about 10 wheels in stainless steel that they forgot to cancel the order on.   Some boats delivered in 1998 and maybe even beyond had the second generation stainless steel wheel which had different dimensions from the early example supplied from the beginning of SM 53 production.

 

This tells us to always send the measurements of your wheel when replacing the leather because type and size were not always consistent with a particular model year which for Amel spanned September to the following August.

 

Have fun with your Amel, Joel

If you obtain any of the excellent "mail order" wheel leather kits, there were three distinctly different wheels on the Super Maramu. Two are stainless steel, one is composite. Not sure when the stainless one evolved but 1998 rings a bell but don't quote me. I believe the composite wheel on the 54 was the same on all.

When I asked Jacques Carteau why the switch to composite, he said 'weight '.

He explained the inertial loads on the chain drive autopilot are greatly reduced with the lighter wheel making it last much longer. Then he showed me linear drive to the rudder quadrant. At the end that is not attached to the rudder, the drive unit is through bolted with rubber squares about 1/4" thick. You have to look hard to see them. He explained that they absorb the 'pop' when the unit changes direction, again, making it last longer.

There are so many little details that make Amel boats what they are. Many of you that I have sold a boat to are probably smiling as you recall how enthusiastic I get when showing many of these unique details to prospects for the first time.

You just need to measure your wheel as they show and order whatever colour you want.
The kit comes with everything you need and instructions to sew it on.

Good luck.

Re: New Wheel Leather

Hi Tom
We replaced ours with a kit from these guys
http://boatleather.com/product/boatleather-wheel-covers/
You just need to measure your wheel as they show and order whatever colour you want.
The kit comes with everything you need and instructions to sew it on.
It is a slow job believe me, but worth it in the end.
Good luck.

Spinnaker Pole Strut Support

Roger Wilson
 

On my Sharki 127 I have the usual stainless tubing support for the strut for the spinnaker pole. The support has a clamp assembly (6 fasteners) on the cap shroud and hides a 120mm length of wire.  The spport crimps onto the lowers with just one fastener.
I am curious if an owner has experienced a corrosion problem on the cap shroud where it it hidden within the support clamp assembly.  This is a place to collect dirt and must be disassembled for inspection.

Thomas,

 

Loco Lola II did a very nice job using leather paint and reconditioned their wheel cover. Or: https://youtu.be/rnf1EaOZsik

 

 

With best regards,

After several years of appearing “fashionably distressed”, our original wheel leather now just looks distressed. Does anyone have any tips for replacing this? Where might I get leather that would fit, or be fitted? Any shared experiences would be much valued.

Hi,
Yesterday I saw SY Phantom in Jabin's  Yacht Yard in Annapolis. If the owner is on this forum or if someone knows him, I would like to get in touch and discuss his experience with the watt&sea generator that the boat has installed.
Fair winds,

Re: Poor Anchor Chain Maintenance

James,

The galvanizer I used said they would have to sandblast if there was paint on it, and they would have an extra charge.  I would regalvanize every time if I could, I think my cost was about $250 if my memory serves.  The last treatment lasted for 3 years (where we were anchored 75% of the time), but now needs attention.
