Re: Main Sail - Manual Furling Gear Box

Ken Powers SV Aquarius
 

I just removed cleaned up and changed all the seals on my manual furler, and Tuesday I will release a video about the process.  Barring a complete disaster or stolen, I can't believe that the manual furler on the mainsail should ever require replacement.  Filling with grease, yes.  Maybe changing all the seals, yes.  But not complete replacement.  You may have to go to a machine shop to help replace the bearings..... But that's it...

All parts are sold by Maud....

So, If you want watch the video....  4 days till launch!

For anyone still looking for insurance,  Mark Gargula at Gowrie in Newport just found suitable insurance for me.  It is not hugely more than the Pantaenius that is ending soon.  It is for the east coast of the US, Bermuda, and the Caribbean only; and I will not be in the hurricane area until after 1 November, so that makes it easier.   I have been with Gowrie for many years, including a significant claim; and I can recommend them.

Hi Sue and Craig,
I am sure that some one will correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that the MANUAL gearbox on the main furler is an Amel custom product only available from Maud.
The motorised gearbox on a SM2000 is not Bonfiglioli as on the SN and early SMs, but LEROY SOMER, but this is not what I think Sue is asking about.

I would be interested too. I have experience with Zoom as participant and I know that the number of participants is limited. So it could be very useful when Tilo could use his Pro account and host 250 participants.

Hi Bill,

While I’m not yet an Amel owner, I am well experienced in hosting Zoom meetings and have an institutional Pro account, so could host up to 250 participants for an unlimited amount of time. I’d be happy to lend this resource and my time to this worthy venture.

Hi again,

I just checked and all of these except for "Limit Screen Sharing to the Host" and the "Lock Your Session" are now default settings in Zoom.  The "Lock Your Session" can only be done after you are in the meeting with all of the participants anyway and I'm not sure that it would be needed for this.  Also meeting passwords are required by default now, though they can be turned off.  Just something to keep in mind.

Take care,

I received an excellent suggestion from an Amel owner this morning. He suggested a ZOOM meeting for interested owners to discuss a few topics.

I envision us meeting for a total of 30 minutes to discuss two issues. If there is interest we could schedule subsequent ZOOM meetings.

Is there any member of our group that is experienced with hosting a ZOOM meeting and willing to volunteer to moderate the meeting?

Any other thoughts?

Great idea. I would certainly attend. Do you already know which 2 issues might be discussed? I have some experience with Zoom and might be able to host pending additional details.

Hi Drew,
               Chris McGeown of Topsail in the UK could also be worth a try. I moved to them around 2010 when Allianz stopped offering cover outside Europe and I have been with them ever since. My boats are always irish flagged so they obviously write policies outside the UK.
With Allianz I was able to sit down with the marine underwriter every year and discuss where I was hoping to go and negotiate the premium.
Something that they pointed out was the the bias on the premium was not for the repairs or replacement, but for shipping the boat back to a yard that could actually carry out any repair work required to a satisfactory standard.
Topsail offer OCC members additional discount.
It is also worth remembering that wherever  the policy is written, that country's legal system is what you are going to have to deal with should you get embroiled in a nasty claim.
Good luck.

Hi Drew,

is your flag US or once of EU?

My dealer inform me, that the problem here in EU is the US Law when your ship has a US flag. And this is the problem of some insurances from EU.
When this is correct, he advice me to ask a insurance from GB. They have the same problem through the brexit and help you with a US flag, hopefully.

Best wishes
