Hello,
 
We are looking for the specs (type, inner/outer size, max pressure etc) of the high pressure hose HP between the HP pump and the 'pressostat' (pressure regulator?). 
 
We have checked online, the dessalator website only shows the fittings without the HP hose, and the company is currently closed due to COVID.
 
We have the stainless steel fittings that can be reused, and are running Dessalator DUO 100. 
 
Has anyone gone through the exercise of sourcing the HP hose and reusing their own fittings? Any recommendations appreciated.
 
Thanks for your help

We had a cover made out of the Bimini material that goes over the clear window panels. This protects them from the elements and prevents the sun from cooking the cockpit occupants when we don’t need the added visibility. 


The clear panels are also removable. We are very happy with how it all came out.

I totally agree. Once you had GN Espace, I doubt if you will ever go back to anything else. GN Espace is a Yacht School Preferred Vendor.

It seems that upon close inspection, our 1991 Electrolux stove has finally given up.  I hear Force 10 has nice options.  Has anyone purchased one, and would you mind sharing the model?  

I do plan to swap over to a convection setup someday, but it will be a while until I switch over to Lithium and Solar.  We are only cruising in the Pacific Northwest for the next 10 years, so getting propane and having the extra heat in the cabin is not a problem.

Re: Galley Stove Replacement #galley #stove

GN Espace are very nice. However the price is eye-watering. About twice the price of Force 10. Also they use this (again expensive) system for putting things is in the oven that I did not really like.

I agree that Force 10 did not benefit from the ENO takeover. However they still have some distinct advantages over the standard ENO stuff. But the quality of finishing did suffer quite a bit. I replaced the Eno on our 54 with a 4 burner Froce 10. Although not nearly at the point of what you can get in domestic stuff for that price, it's working OK.
I still like the balanced oven door. It's their mayor selling point. When installing be careful as there can be some sharp edges on the back.
The 4 burner required some work on the cavity of the 54 as the total width of the stove is less then the Amel version of the ENO. However the effective cooking surface is virtually the same. Also the locking mechanism for the gimbal has been taken from the ENO line again not improving on quality.

Re: Galley Stove Replacement #galley #stove

Hello Dan and Mark,

When we refitted Eleuthera, SM007, we went for Ocean Chef 3.(OC3)  This is the cooker installed on Oysters.

Advantages:
- Fits well into the space vacated by the old unit, 
- 3 burner cook top instead of 2 in dearly departed old unit
- Good gimbal.
- Top grate locks in our Induction cookplate (Unold… inexpensive and a great unit) we rarely use the Ocean Chef propane cook top.

Disadvantages:
- OC3 markings/decals disappear very quickly if cleaned.
- Igniter unit failed quickly even with limited use.  We now use one of the long igniters to light the oven.
- We added a brushed SS deflector plate to dissipate the heat under the Microwave shelf.

Piccies available if needed. After 4 years, we are very satisfied.

The Induction add-on is awesome.  Would not be without it. UNOLD … Germany made

Good luck, 


Jean-Pierre Germain

Re: Best location for solar panels

 

Paul,

That looks great. I must have missed the brand of solar panel that you used. I read that each panel is rated at 170 watts or 340 for each pair, so I assume that your total solar is 680. I was wondering why the forward pair are not spread apart in the middle?
