Re: Anode wear

Hi Paul, Bill has seen a lot more Amel's than I have, but for what it is worth, on my SM 53 the anodes always seem to erode equally.  Knowing that the anodes are part of an electrical circuit I am careful to always clean the bolts, and the installed anode contact areas and assure adequate torque of the bolts (not overkill so as to strip things but snug).  As long as you are seeing some anode erosion then you are probably safe but at your next haul out it would be worth checking the continuity (resistance) between each anode bolt (i.e. side to side) and between each bolt individually relative to the cluster of bonding wires at the bilge bonding strap.  

Basically I would continue to monitor this and diagnose further during the next haul out. 

Best,

Re: Bahamas airports

Mark Erdos
 

Hi Pat,

 

Depth is not a huge concern in the Exuma Islands but you do need to plan the routes carefully to avoid the shallow areas. We used the Explorer Guide and Chart Books. We found them to be very accurate. They show the best places to anchor and mark areas know to have good holding. https://www.explorercharts.com/  See if you can buy the Exuma Islands one used from a cruisers who is heading east to the Caribbean.

 

Keep in mind, the Bahamas have about a 3’ tide. If you are doing a channel marked as 7’, do it on a rising tide and you will not have issues. Also, the bottom is soft sand. So, if you do bump it’ll not damage much – mostly ego. We did two seasons in the Bahamas and never touched the bottom. In fact, I don’t think we sailed in less than 10 feet. It is sort of interesting to sail all day on the leeward side of the islands and never see more than 15 feet of water. It is fun to anchor there. Cindy would stand on the bow and give me a thumbs up when we were clear of grass and then she’d watch the anchor set in the sand. You can always see the bottom on the leeward sides of the islands.

 

You’ll need to be aware of a phenomena know as rage. This is when the tide is falling (water falls off the shallows and flows to the east) and is in the opposing direction of the East wind in the cuts between the islands. It can get very nasty in the cuts. Time your passages between the island cuts.

 

We loved the Exuma Cays Land and Sea National Park!!! https://bnt.bs/exuma-cays-land-sea-park/ There are fees to anchor or to pick up a buoy. Warderick Wells and Bells Cay are “must do” locations. For Warderick Wells, you need to radio them at 8am the day wish to visit and they will let you know if there is a buoy available (if not they will put you on the list for the next day but you have to check with them each day). Once there you stay as long as you want. Bells Cay is first come first served (stay for as long as you can pay). Waderick has incredible hiking. Bells has some of the best snorkeling and awesome beaches.

 

 

People go to the Bahamas for fishing, fabulous beaches, crystal clear water and isolation. It is very possible to anchor in a cove on a deserted island and have a beach all to yourself for days. People do not go there for great food and entertainment. Most stores are sparsely stocked and expensive. Provision well before going there.

 

BTW – Today is our first day of insurance with Y-Yacht. Thanks for all the info. There are an absolute pleasure to deal with.

 

 

With best regards,

 

Mark

Hi all,

I just had my rudder anodes changed after having been on for 9 months. Of the two that came off, one had normal corrosion, probably about 20-30% corroded, but the other one had virtually no corrosion at all.

I must also say that this new forum is a vast improvement in the Yahoo one, so well done to those who implemented it.

Hi all,

Just a quick contribution for the benefit of those who are operating a Yanmar 4JH3-HTE and ONAN genset.

I developed the attached look-up tables to assist me with keeping track of diesel consumption. Each time either the ONAN or YANMAR is used, I create a line-item in a hand-written fuel-log. When I significantly change revs on the YANMAR, I also create a new line-item (so, in essence record 1.5HR@1,600, 2.0HR@2,200, and so on). The figure for the fuel USED column is derived from the quick-lookup-tables attached, a laminated two-sided copy of which is held in the back-cover of the fuel log.

All figures in the table are rounded UP to the nearest whole liter. This means that, over time, I am actually over-estimating fuel usage. Which periodically I correct by dipping the tank. I never want to see less fuel in the tank than I have calculated as remaining.

The figures for the YANMAR are come from the ideal performance curves for the YANMAR engine, which were put into an excel spreadsheet and a theoretical fuel-use curve derived. This curve was then adapted/adjusted on the basis of actual fuel consumption observed, the resulting formulae being derived by EXCEL. This second formula was then used to populate the table.

The speeds were derived on the basis of an actual run in still-water over several hours in calm conditions; but with moderately dirty prop and hull - so probably in the ball park for real-world use, but not rough seas. I have not seen the need to adjust anything using these speeds in two years since initial calculation.

I am interested to hear about other's experience. In the meantime, this is about as complicated - and as simple - as I need to get and, once I take the round-up errors into account, have found these fuel figures to be remarkably consistent over 2 years.

Please note that range and endurance figures are based NOT on the full-tank 600 liters, but on 510 liters, leaving roughly 15% always as a "fixed reserve", at least for planning purposes.

I hope this helps someone else out there.

To:     All existing members of the Amel Yacht Owners Group on Yahoo!

From: Bill Rouse

In 2002, “Closereach” founded the Amel Yacht Owners Group on Yahoo Groups platform with a handful of members. Our group grew in membership to the hundreds when Closereach retired from our group and turned the group’s ownership over to Jose Luis Isasi. Jose led the group to over 1000 members and in 2018 turned the ownership over to me.

In the beginning and through a number of years, the Yahoo platform worked well for most of our members. However, as technology progressed, Yahoo Groups did not, and many of the members began complaining of numerous shortcomings with the Yahoo platform. Additionally, Yahoo simply stopped supporting the groups about 2 years ago and left known bugs and problems continue to irritate all of us. Lastly, we cannot ignore the numerous rumors about Yahoo and what they may do with the Yahoo Groups, especially since they no longer support their group platform.

Groups.io is a new and different platform for groups like ours. Although they offer a “free” group platform, it is not for us because we need more features and we are larger than the small groups the free platform is intended for. Groups.io has a PREMIUM platform which is generally designed like the Yahoo platform that we are accustomed to, but Groups.io has search ability that works, and many other tools that work.

The Amel Owners Group moderators and I have been testing Groups.io for several weeks and made the decision to move the Amel Yacht Owners Group to Groups.io. Hopefully the transition will go as smooth as possible, but I am sure that there will be issues. We are moving all of our data with us. There is a minimal cost involved ($110/year), which Amel School will pay for 5 years. I believe that this will give us plenty of time to plan for the years after the first 5. For instance, the Nordhavn Group moved from Yahoo, supported by members and shortly after the move Nordhavn’s parent company agreed to pay all of the costs.

The Moderators of our Group will remain: Mark McGovern, SM CARA, Mark Erdos, SM CREAM PUFF, Danny SIMMS, SM OCEAN PEARL, and Gary Wells, SM ADAGIO

You will need to:

Use a different email address when sending an email. Use main@AmelYachtOwners.groups.io

Go to the new Amel Yacht Owners website address https://amelyachtowners.groups.io/g/main/topics  and establish a log-in by clicking on “Log In” in the upper right and follow the instructions for “Forgot your password, or don't have one yet?”

 

I hope that you all will enjoy the new platform.
