Hello,

I think it is behind the loudspeaker above the dishwashing machine. Last time I was installing the exhaust instrument and have seen it. At the time I was wondering what is it for. Now I think it is for bow truster. Just an idea if  it might help.

Hello Slavko,

 

last year I did the same lookout/research and finished with www.saijla-com.hr in Betina, Murter. They are competent and use recommended material. I have been there last year for preparation and measuring, but the work couldn’t be finished due to covid. But all my information and impression is good.

Bonjour Victor,

 

My masts are actually at Russo Yachting for a new paint and they will also attached the new rigging ordered from ACMO.

 

I believe that company is good and the new owner, Mr Duthoit is a very nice person.

The company is reliable.  The name of the company is new but not the company itself which has been active on the market for decades (Russo Yachting).

Mr Russo retired 1 or 2 years ago.

Hello all.

I plan to have a rigging survey and probably its replacement in the coming months. I contacted Amel in Hyers (South France) and they told me that they do not do this type of job anymore, recommending me a company called Seanergies. Does anyone know the company? Is it reliable? I am concerned because when I asked Bill Rouse he told me that he didn't know them, and that's not a good sign...

Any comments or recommendations will be very welcome.

Re: Portable freezer

I purchased a larger Engle model .... no carry strap
A couple of years ago for a wander through the South Pacific.  It worked really well. Stored it on my santorin in the bottom of the  hanging locker 
Opposite the forward bathroom where 12 v wiring accessible. Never moved even in very rough water. All contents were well frozen. Meant that eg a large fish could be filleted and kept frozen as with fresh red meat purchased from JP’s favourite butcher in Nandi. A seriously good acquisition which cost about NZ$800 at the time from Burnsco

Re: Portable freezer

Patrick McAneny
 

Paul, I took out the nav station seat and installed a good size portable freezer in it's place. We spent six months in the Caribbean ,actually while you were there and it worked out very well. It did not seem to run that ,kept everything frozen solid and was very easy to access . The height was good to sit on ,a little bit of a squeeze to get your feet in under the desk ,but once in very .comfortable .
Good Luck,

Hello!
Preparing for our next extended trip, and thinking of an additional portable freezer. We have the front opens fridge, the top opens fridge freezer, used as a fridge under the salon sofa, and a custom built freezer where the dish washer used to be +/- 35 liters. On a long trip far away from supermarkets a large freezing capacity would be handy. I can turn the small freezer (dishwasher place) to a fridge and then use the top opening fridge freezer as fridge, but that would give rather limited fridge capacity. Has anyone experience using a portable freezer in tropical climate? Does it works,  any recommendations? were did you store it?

Re: Portable freezer

Hello Paul,

on my previous boat there was no freezer. I installed small 12V unit, portable, the one you would use in car or camper. Installed it in 2003 and was working well in 2020 when I sold a boat. I sailed with it all Med, 2 crossing of Atlantic and 2 seasons in Caribbean. No problem whatsoever. I can not  remember the brand but I will try to find tomorrow in my old notes.

What is back up plan in event of dead starter battery? On my previous boat it happened  that starter battery was dead, but I had two separate 12V starter batteries. One for engine and second one for generator. What is your set up?

Hello Nicolas. I have never had a need to contact or work with ACMO but I know plenty of people who have who praise them uniformly with the possible exception of the time it takes to get an order fulfilled. Good people are always the busiest…

 

I know that ACMO offers mechanical end fittings at a substantial markup over swages. In my opinion they are more than worth  it. I have never seen or heard of a mechanical fitting that failed without outside provocation.

 

As I have mentioned, I used to be a rigger as a teenager and qualified for the job only because I weighed 75 LBS. and I could be put up to the masthead easier than anyone else. I was too young to know I would die one day so I fearlessly/stupidly engaged in antics that could have brought that moment in time sooner rather than later. I did learn a lot from very experienced adults in the shop. I have a great appreciation for riggers that know their stuff and practice it professionally.

 

I have been providing clients to Roger and Nance and Underwood rigging here in Fort Lauderdale almost since I sold my first Amel 40 years ago. I echo the praise they get on this owners group because they deeply deserve it. I have never had a dissatisfied customer that Nance and Underwood assisted. They are not the ones for you as they are an ocean away.

 

As you search for solutions to your rigging challenges, talk to everyone who will listen to you. Find a group of professional riggers who earn your confidence and have buckets full of people who recommend them. In my more than four decades of selling offshore cruising yachts exclusively, I have learned many of the most important things to keep in mind. First, keep the water on the outside of the boat. All of it. Second, don’t ever lose your steering. Ever. Third, having your rig come down will wreck your day and might even kill you.

 

Good luck with your rigging.

 

All the best,

Joel

Hello Joel
As my boat is already 16yo (2005) I’m actively looking at re rigging it.I will certainly follow Bill’s advice to use ACMO but having had a look at your link on mechanical end fittings from « Stalok » , I would like to ask you if they can be fitted to ACMO rigging . When ordering the rigging one would have to mention that one is using it’s own fittings ? How would it work then ?
best regards

Re: New LiFePO4 Batteries for Aquarius

Ken Powers SV Aquarius
 

Jason,

Depending on where the batteries are shipping, is the difference between getting a good deal and a great deal.  I paid slightly less than $3500 for the two batteries including shipping.  That was a killer deal.  There were several other boats that bought the same batteries when I bought.  Plus, there was one boat that bought from Lithium Valley 5 years prior.  And he loved his batteries.  If you are in Thailand there is no tax, or duty, on Chinese electronics shipped into Thailand.  And, the other thing that makes them cheap in Thailand.... You can ship from China to Thailand via Train.  Paid, about $300 for shipping.  

Best Regards,

Slavko,

The previous (also the only previous) owner moved the starter battery into the engine room.   I kind of think it's a good idea to have the engine start battery in the engine room, so I left it there.  Shorter high current cables are, the better.
