Re: Mantus anchor on a 54

Alain Durante
 

Hello,

 

I do have a stainless Mantus 45 kg on my 54 and no problem at all for the bow roller.

 

In addition to the anchor, I also bought a 10 mm Cromox stainless chain which is the best product for safety and quality.

 

Cordialement,

Hi has anyone added a mantus anchor to their 54 either a M1 or M2 without having to modify the bow roller?

Cheers

Merci beaucoup!!!
Thanks for your efforts i just bought a 45kg Ultra with Kris.
Great Price and custumer treatment. Highly recommended and very appreciated.

Best Regards and stay safe.
Whats the next deal with you??
Furuno bundle or Cromox chain or....
Would be a great idea to strife for bundle bargains for Forum members. Discounts in the Carribean are not the best war for us in Europe.

The aft valve is 1 1/4" BSPP I believe the forward head is the same.  One of the guys that has changed the forward valve may respond or contact them directly to confirm.

Re: Best Video projector for SMs

Brian Riggs
 

Thank you to all who have replied so far!

Scott, I do remember your setup aboard Tengah, and that's what really started me thinking about purchasing something that would work for both. I thought this sounded fun from the first day I saw it.

Kent, I'm really interested in what your finished project looks like. If you're aboard KRISTY, would you be able to provide measurements of the opening including the depth?

Robert, I'll search into Miroir projectors.

Jose, good point about focal length of the lens. This was something I was planning to estimate with a throw of somewhere in the +/-10 to 11 feet range. The plan has been to incorporate audio into the house system. Audio is actually my strength. I'm no stranger to large venue concerts from an audio engineering perspective.

Very respectfully,

I had that issue in Gib. I told them I would fill them myself and on the boat. They agreed.

Hi Bill,
That's been my experience so far as well although I do subscribe to Collins idea of topping of the tank when I have had a chance.  Backfired on me in Gibraltar.  Filled my tank, left Queensway to the fuel dock to discover they wouldn't fill jerrys.  Evidently enterprising individuals were filling them up and selling the duty free diesel to locals!

Brian,

Do you remember my setup when you came aboard? Can't recall the projector model right now, but I have it setup on port side on the shelf. I cut out the "fiddle" on the shelf to allow the projector to sit flat and then used the old metal bracket that previously held the DVD player to secure it.

On starboard, I have a 72" (1.82m) screen that is normally stored away and unroll it up UP and attach to a hook that I screwed into the underside of the roof.

That was an earlier iteration before I attached a hook to the underside of the roof. 

This is of course on a 54, but I'm guessing it would work on a SM.

Re: Volvo penta D3 110 I-D

Scott SV Tengah
 

I had the exact same problem on our 2900nm passage from Hawaii to Tahiti. Imagine being in the doldrums and being afraid your engine is going to die!

https://amelyachtowners.groups.io/g/main/topic/77988991

The Volvo replacement switch is around 60 euros and since it's not sealed, will fail again. I plan to use a spade connector and stuff it with silicone grease. The emergency stop switch on my D3-110C is kind of in the path of the intake fan airflow. Not a great design.

I suggest all D3 owners check their emergency stop switch. Mine has been intermittent for 3 years.

I replaced the BT seals about 4 months ago. If you have a big puller, it isn't too difficult. We couldn't source one in Tahiti so made one out of two steel bars we found in the dumpster (!!) and two long bolts/nuts.

Here's a thread I started about it:

Re: Fuel Bladders

Colin - ex SV Island Pearl
 

Hi Bob

Good to hear from you, and we trust you are doing well. I remember that Easter Sunday in 2019 very well when we chatted at Bequia. We had decided last minute on waking up that day not to spend another season in the Caribbean, and to sail directly to Panama departing that same day as it enabled us to transit the canal still in early May, plus sail all the Pacific Islands which we had not sailed before, plus still make it all the way back to Australia before COVID struck.

In answer to your question, we did not ever actually need all the extra 200L of fuel but always had emptied all of it into our tank before reaching our destinations. 

Please note we only filled those Jerry cans ahead of our longer trips and before spending 4 months in Indonesia (just in case) so 90% of the time they were empty on board in the locker and cleaned & dried out. Since we spent 4 months in Indonesia in many off the beaten tracks remote locations, where fuel was often black in colour, full of sticks, hairs and lots of dirt, and sold in old coke bottles on the side of the road from very dodgy suppliers we also filled all cans with good clean fuel in Australia, and so needed very little fuel all the way through till Singapore.

Having endured fuel issues on a previous yacht in Sydney Harbour and then almost been swept into a major car bridge in swift-running currents due to a fuel-related engine failure at the most difficult moment possible, I had become extremely cautious regarding fuel and so had fitted both dual Racor filters PLUS a large Fuel Polishing Unit ahead of leaving on our around the world trip. In addition, we also carried a portable WestMarine fuel filter and filtered all fuel when pouring from Jerry Cans into the main tanks, and then also periodically ran our large automatic fuel polisher to turn over all fuel in the main tank. This could rightly be seen by many here as overkill, however, that extra precaution, plus over-servicing the engine myself with good quality oils far more often than the engine manual suggested,  helped Lauren and I sleep better fortunately our little Yanmar 75HP always purred away happily all the way around the world never missing a beat.

Although we didn't ever need all that fuel I would do exactly the same again if we ever do another big lap.

Hi Colin,
Last saw you as you were in your dinghy hanging onto our rail in Bequia to inform me of your decision to immediately move on through The Canal back to Austrailia. 

Just curious--even though you transfer from the cans to the tank when you can--by your calculations, did you ever need the extra fuel you carried?
