Nick,

I think what Olivier is telling you is that there are 2 "Outside" Neoprene foam seals (one on top of the other) that seal the tube opening when the BT is up. The one you see inside the watertight BT compartment is the "Inside" Neoprene foam seal...it seals the tube opening when the BT is down.

Hello Olivier, 
Thank you for that information. I see the neoprene seal from the inside and have some spares on board. I guess they glue in place. I suppose it is normal for a small amount of water to leak through, if the boat is slamming to windward. In any case next time I haul out I will glue in new seals.

Hello Nick,

there are two foam seals located around the BT drive tube, on top of the gear-box/props GRP casing, looking like the one you see inside, around the drive tube. When the BT is in the UP position, these seals are supposed to be compressed against the top of the hull box (where the BT is stored). If your seals are aged/damaged, they are not soft anymore and cannot play their part.
They also could be in good condition but the UP position of the BT is too low (because the stop switches -mechanic or magnetic- have moved). But as you mentioned you could put the safety pin in, I don't think the switches are wrong (stopping the lifting too early).

In order to replace the neopren foam seals, you need to have the vessel out of the water. You should wait until next scheduled haul-out for antifouling, as the amount of water is probably not much and is draining through a hose to the engine room bilge. A good check is to turn off the draining hose valve (under saloon floorboard) and see how much water you get in one hour, as the water will collect at the bottom of the front deck locker.

Have a nice sailing.

Hi Nick.  I assume it’s the same on the 54 as on the SM.  
While you’re at it, change the lip seal where the shaft goes through the hull, change the oil in the shaft, and change the lip seal on the prop shaft.  I also change the nylon bolts the the prop hub.  There’s a good description of the maintenance procedure in the Files section of this site.

Hi James, You are correct, depending on the source you look at 1 micro-siemen/cm = to about 0.65 TDS for seawater.  I have corrected my original message. 

This is the EC meter I bought ( example   https://www.ebay.com/itm/OMEGA-ENGINEERING-CDCN-201-CDCN201-RQANS2-/232703669959 )  it is powered by 230 VAC, has adjustable alarm limits (I verified the calibration on mine using some standardized calibrated water), and it has relay output for the alarm and/or bypass valve.  I included some LEDs to show power, and alarm condition but that was just fluff.  I powered it from the Dessalinator CB  so that any time that CB is on the salinity sensor is on.  The relay output switches 24 VDC to the sonalert that has an inline switch that I label "arm / mute" so I can mute the sonalert while the startup cycle does it's thing (i.e. high EC). The bypass switch is labeled "save / discard".  I will draw up a schematic of the system and post it in the files section under Amel SM - Dessalator.  The sensor is plumbed into the product water line as it exits the membranes (next to the original sham sensor).  I think I already posted a picture of that.  My timer for the auto flush circuit is a 24 volt fish feeder 7 day programable timer hooked to a relay.  The wire from the 24 VDC panel for the pressurized water pump passes thru this relay on the Normally Open contacts.  When the timer is in the "ON" mode the relay closes and supplies 24 VDC to the fresh water pump.  When I leave the boat I place the flush valve in the the "flush" position and set the Timer to "Auto" mode so that when the timer commands, the relay closes, energizing the fresh water pump for the period programmed into the timer.  Once the flush is complete the power to the fresh water pump is interrupted by the relay contacts opening.  So the pressurized water system is not always pressurized lest a leak flood the boat.  It is only pressurized during relay closure.

Re: Bow locker floors/hawse pipe replacement project recap

Gary Silver
 

Hi Thomas:

Thanks for your excellent write up and pictures of your project. I am collecting the supplies to do my bow locker floors and hawse pipe replacement.  I noted that you wrote that you used a 4 inch PVC pipe for your hawse pipe.   I measure the OD (outside diameter) of the existing hawse pipe on my boat as 76.45 mm or 3 inches.  Can you comment on your findings and if you used an oversized pipe?  Someone on this forum suggested using FRP tubing from McMaster Carr but the largest size I can find there is an OD of 3 inches with and ID of 2.5 inches.  I am uncertain if and ID of 2.5 inches is large enough.  Do you have any thoughts on that?

Thanks for any input or suggestions you might provide.

See if you can manually turn the pump. If you don't see a way to turn the motor shaft, open the round impeller cover and turn a few turns.

Hi I have 54# 101 and just replaced my pump.  It was inconsistently running and not turning off then working properly for a while then screwing up again.  Bill recommend a replacement easy peasy and now no worries (the best) pump a little expensive but......

Subject: [AmelYachtOwners] Reya fresh water pump won’t start

We arrived on Kokomo today after wintering her for 6 months in Greece. When I turn on the fresh water breaker, the pump does not start and the breaker trips after about 2-3 seconds..

The pump was working perfectly before we left, so I’m assuming it has something to do with the pump sitting for 6 months.

Any ideas on how to get her Re-started?

Respectfully;
