Hello All,

I just placed a PO for 20 pieces and has been verified by Ray.  They are ordering the material, and as soon as the material hits the shop they should be ready the next day.  According to Ray the 20 pieces should be complete in 3 weeks.  If within the next few days we need more than 20 pieces, I will increase the PO.

Re: Mainsheet Traveller replacement on an early Super Maramu

Mark Barter
 

Hi Steve,

The traveller car and the end blocks you have look almost identical to the ones we have fitted. I thought I had found a replacement car on Ebay but it isn't going to be compatible. It is the same as the car on Noa Blue above.

What I can't figure out is what the 4 nuts either side of the car are for. I have undone them all and the thread that they are on appears to be captive in the car. Of course it may just be seized in there. I thought by removing the nuts the wheels may have come free allowing the car to be removed but that didn't happen. Have you any idea what the nuts do here?

My thought is to remove the car because I think that the stainless loop will be attached to the car by 2 bolts. If I can get the car off I can remove the damaged bolts and re attach the loop with new bolts.

Thanks
Mark

I would order 2 sets, for SM 2000 and need a delivery to Europe. I hope that the cost of delivery would be reasonable.

SM winch motor brushes

Mike Ondra
 

Our starboard foresail winch has started to complain. After servicing the above deck hardware it sounded better but still a bit more growly than normal. Suspecting the motor brushes. Not having had experience servicing this motor, I am anticipating, as with other first time servicing projects, that it may not go smoothly. If indeed brush replacement is likely, I would like to have the brushes in hand while things are apart. We do have spare brushes for the furling motors. It would be nice if the winch motors utilized the same brushes. Can anyone confirm the specifics of the winch motor brushes?

Thanks,

Mike Ondra

Hello All,

Since there has been discussion of the BT seals, thought I would repost this thread with the contact information for obtaining the seals.  There is a 10 unit minimum, I had no trouble finding homes for the extras.  Steve, I didn’t see an actual pic of the seals on the shaft, could you post one?

Re: Silicone BT seals

Jose, do you still use the inner neoprene seals, too?  
YES

Do you use RTV sealant to keep them in place?  
I USED SILICON SEALANT
 
Any other tips?

Thanks JP!

No, Z is working in Lithuania.  Someone has to make money in this family.  My role is young SPENDER.   Currently I am on the hard here in Krabi Boat Lagoon, and loving it.  Working away on Aquarius getting her ready for the Indian Ocean Crossing!  Just ordered my third battery......  Now Aquarius will have 900AH usable at 24V.  I did a load pull on my 1 year old 600AH 24V battery bank, and ran the portable Aircon off my inverter for 19.5 hours.....  Average 32Amps...  Just about 620AH...  OMG, I would not do this again, but the results were amazing.  How are you and Julie doing?
