I talked with Roger a couple of days ago at the shop re: swageless fittings. Confirmed he has both metric and imperial sizes of Sta-Loks.

Hi Oliver,

 

Do I understand from below message that on the A54 the triactic antenna wire/connection dead ends behind the MC shower lamp?  So coming from AMEL Yard on delivery this is not connected at all and serves no purpose?

Hello,

 

You find the mizzen cables behind the master shower lamp. 

My Mizzen to Mainmast stay antenna wire (triatic??) ended there too. So I had to route it from there to the navseat. There is a cable tube going from showerlamp to alley.

 

The mainmast wires are accesseble above the forward alley door.

Volvo oil pressure

Paul Dowd and Sharon Brown
 

Hi all,

 

I have a Volvo D3-110i-C with low oil pressure. I’m told by the local Volvo dealer that the engine will have to be taken out in order to replace the oil pump. I’m wondering what other factor may cause low oil pressure. Any opinion on this would be most welcome.

 

A bit of history on the problem. I changed the oil and oil filter after 188 engine hours which was 3 years. I then started getting low pressure warning after reducing from 1100rpm to idle. I checked the oil level and topped up to the top of the mark. After a couple of days I started getting low pressure warning whilst running at 1100rpm (to heat water). This was confirmed when the engineer attached a pressure gauge.

 

Cheers,

Paul

Hi Bill,
How do Nance and Underwood handle the "special turnbuckle" on the headstay, which is shorter than standard ones? I used ACMO last time and, of course, it's not an issue with them, but since we're back in the States I may want to source locally.
Thanks,
Craig

Re: A54 lewmar chain counter setup: check yours!

Arno Luijten
 

Hi Thomas,

Actually I found out the very same thing when I replaced the chain counter. Mine was getting pretty bad with the the LCD readout. So when I replaced it I found the same issue. One of those thing easily missed during commissioning of a yacht I guess.
But It's better then the other way around, thinking you set out 30 meter and only doing 20!

Cheers,

Arno

BTW I'm having great results with the replacement of the Buegel with a Spade 35 kg. It grabs very fast and sits much better on the bow.

A54 lewmar chain counter setup: check yours!

Hi all,

I got a bit red faced the other day when I realised the lewmar chain counter was still using factory default parameters, including a 300mm chain per revolution. I measured the reality: ~450mm ...

No wonder we never drag anchor...

Kent,

I talked to Steve about it. There were some errors in the file that were made by Steve's contractor. That file was removed from the files section.

This file may help you. It is everything that was in Steve's file with some added things. It is available to you through my website at CLIENT ACCESS>>Book Supplements>>Product Information>>Part 1 Deck & Hull>>Engine Hatch Bulge Repair. There are some other files at that location, including another hatch repair method.
