SM Fresh water pressure tank

Dan Carlson
 

Hello, my fresh water pressure accumulator tank is loosing pressure and then the pump has to cycle frequently when using water. 

I have added air to the tank a number of times now and it escapes over a few days. I also removed the air fill valve and inspected and put silicone on the rubber seal and valve.

Does anyone else have troubleshooting experience? Or replacement? 

I am currently in Antigua. 

Photo of tank attached. 

Thanks and regards, Daniel Carlson on sv BeBe, SM#387

Hello and all the best for 2021,
Our Amel 54 #162 was the showboat on the Paris 2010 and Düsseldorf boat show in 2011, so already with lot of extra things  - but no diesel heating -when we made the contract on the Boatshow in Paris.
So thanks to my wife it was fixed in the contract, that Amel will do the installation of the Webasto airheating system. They did it in perfect way and told us, that it is the extra with bigges work to add after the boat is already built.That time pricelist showed for Dieselheating 11.000 €+Vat when order comes with the boat.
We are very happy with the heating. Essential also in the Med-sea. We never used the AC for heating.
The only way for heating while sailing is a dieselheating.
My recommendation: If you are in La Rochelle and Amel could make the installation a Webasto air dieselheating would be my first choice. Modification with one extraoutlet near the helmstation with possibility to shut down.
If elsewhere I would install a hydronic dieselheater the way SV Delos did.Perhaps you can get some more informations.

Jeff,

I would very much like to hear what you do in the end as I want to install heating in my 54.

I asked Amel and the answer was not satisfactory.

Dear Amelians,
I'm gathering information before installing a hyronic diesel heating system aboard my 54. 
There are a couple questions regarding the installation on the 54s
If the install was a FACTORY (Amel) install:
1. Where did they vent the exhaust?
2. Was it an Espar heater?
3. Is it an air unit? 
4. Did they mount the heater in the port locker or the ER?

If it was an installation that was done aboard but after purchase, and not by Amel:
1. Where did they vent the exhaust?
2. Espar or Webasto unit?
3. Air or Hydronic?
4. Heater mounted in Port Locker or ER?
5. If it's an Espar, and it's a hydronic, are your heating elements fan units, or straight radiator elements inside the boat?

Any feedback is appreciated.

Heater

Paul Osterberg
 

Hello!
We plan a trip to Nordkap the coming summer, so some sort of heater would be necessary.  To install a typ Webasto water born heater would be rather expensive and a not so straight forward installation, without compromising the water tight bulkheads. A too big job and investment for only one season. So looking to alternative solutions.
Have anyone replaced the old AC unit with a new one that also work as a heat pump and provide heat?
what was your experience, especially with the heating? Any brand to be recommended.
 Our AC units looks a bit corroded and guess approaching the end of it's life span, so even if the cost is about the same it might make more sense long term.
Any general view how long the original AC units lasts?
Any other suggestion on a source for heating?

Organizer: Bill Rouse BROUSE@... 4093563221

Description:

Jimmy Cornell is joining our group again for another Ocean passage briefing. This event will be the Pacific Voyage Planning. The Atlantic Voyage Planning meeting we had in October has been viewed by over 800 Amel Owners and Amel enthusiasts.

Jimmy Cornell has influenced the contemporary cruising scene more than any other sailor. An accomplished sailor, public speaker, and author, he has sailed over 200,000 miles in all oceans of the world including three circumnavigations as well as voyages to Antarctica and the Northwest Passage.

Thousands of sailors have fulfilled their dream of blue water cruising with the help of Jimmy Cornell’s books, among them the international bestseller World Cruising Routes. Now in its 8th edition, and with over 200,000 copies sold to date, this is one of the best selling nautical publications in the world.

As the founder of the highly successful ARC transatlantic rally, Jimmy Cornell is credited with having devised the offshore cruising rally concept. In the last four decades, Jimmy Cornell has organized 38 transatlantic rallies, five round the world rallies, and one round the world race, with over 3,000 boats and 15,000 sailors having participated in his sailing events.

From my perspective, the first Jimmy Cornell seminar that Judy and I attended was after we had sailed most of the world and had over 20 years of sailing experience. We learned a lot!

We are very pleased that Jimmy has taken time out of his very busy schedule to give a special ZOOM presentation to the Amel Yacht Owners Group. I encourage you to RSVP soon for this meeting.

Re: Heater installed by factory Amel 54

Randall Walker
 

Hello Eric,

Yes, I have a Wabasto heater in my 54. They work great, but if you haven't run it in a while the first usage will have a terrible smell. That goes away.
The air intake is below the mizzen mast in the cockpit. Check in the portside locker of the cockpit and check that the vent piping is all secure to the Wabasto.
Sometimes they won't start on the first try if not used in a while. So you need to start it and wait, you should hear the heater fan, the fuel pump should sound like a small thumping, I can hear my pump while standing in the passageway. The pump is in the engine compartment next to the fuel tank. if it shuts off just turn the switch off, wait a minute try again, and repeat.

Cheers,
Randall

As the founder of the highly successful ARC transatlantic rally, Jimmy Cornell is credited with having devised the offshore cruising rally concept. In the last four decades, Jimmy Cornell has organized 38 transatlantic rallies, five round the world rallies, and one round the world race, with over 3,000 boats and 15,000 sailors having participated in his sailing events.

From my perspective, the first Jimmy Cornell seminar that Judy and I attended was after we had sailed most of the world and had over 20 years of sailing experience. We learned a lot!

We are very pleased that Jimmy has taken time out of his very busy schedule to give a special ZOOM presentation to the Amel Yacht Owners Group. I encourage you to RSVP soon for this meeting.

So, Courtney, it's going down to 41° F / 5°C tonight in Brunswick!  Brrr.
Give it a try and it will:
1 - clear and burn out any dust in the burner and ducts,
2 - freshen up the diesel fuel in the pump and supply line
3- scare the livin' bejeezus out of any critters having moved into the intake plenum (I had a hive of paper wasps that stunck like crazy for days but cleared up).
Or, as someone said, "use it or lose it".
Of course I'm sure you're comfy with the reverse cycle A/C and at the dock the diesel exhaust is not acceptable, but occasional running is good.
Cheers, Craig

Re: Amel Maramu Jib sail halyard snapped

Dennis Johns
 

Hi Ben,

I think the main halyard idea is your best solution at this time.  What you are missing is two spinnaker halyards that should be running to the top of the mast.  While you are up repairing the jib halyard, take a couple of suitable blocks and attach them onto the loop at the top front of the masthead.  Run suitable lines for spinnaker halyards through them.  Now you not only have a spare halyard to go to the top of the mast (spinnaker halyard #1), but you will also have a safety line (spinnaker halyard #2).

The main mast halyard passes through the mast and is attach to a metal railing around 5 feet from the bottom of the mast where the rope ends with no spare to give.

So to us that solution, i need to attach another rope to it and pull it up around the top of the mast and use that solution. 

So we come to the same conclusion. 

I just wanted to ask around to know if I was missing something before getting into this job. 

Thx

How about dropping the mainsail and using that halyard?

Good afternoon Amel community. I’ve purchased an amel Maramu 46 and slowly learning the basics of it. While sailing yesterday the jib sail halyard snapped and I need to replace it. 

My problem is this. I just realized they are no spare halyard to pull someone on top of the mast to do the necessary fix. The only solution I see for now is attaching another temporary rope to the mainsail halyard and try to use it to create a temporary halyard to bring someone up the main mast to make the necessary repair to add a new halyard to the jib sail. 

Before getting into this endevour, I wanted to ask the community if they have any other idea??? Cause I’m lost for word that they are no spare halyard on the mast. 

Thx
