Hello Xavier and my friend Craig Briggs gives me too much credit. My French is not good enough to try to do a “simulcast” in French and English. Perhaps you could have a friend who is bi-lingual watch the zoom meeting with you and translate the parts you don’t quite understand.

 

Sorry to not be able to accommodate you.

 

All the best,

Joel

Description:

All,

 

It is my true pleasure to announce our next ZOOM meeting for 10 April at 2000 UTC.

 

The Subject of this meeting is “How to work with a broker to Buy or Sell your Amel." Included will be tips from one of the world's most experienced Amel brokers, Joel Potter.

 

I asked Joel Potter to place some of his Amel knowledge and his love of the brand aside for this ZOOM meeting. I asked Joel to use his experience to help you understand how to best work with a yacht broker as a Buyer and as a Seller. I also asked him to provide you with some inside information and tips on how to work with any broker. I do not think that you will find this “inside information” and tips anywhere.

If you own an Amel, someday you will be selling her and a few tips can be worth thousands. If you plan on buying an Amel, chances are you will hear advice that will be “priceless.”

 

Joel Potter began his Amel selling career 40 years ago in 1981. Since that time and up to the present Joel has sold Amel yachts, almost exclusively. In 2015, Joel retired from selling new Amel boats after nearly 35 years of being Amels exclusive representative for all of North America in order to concentrate on selling preowned Amel boats.   

 

Joel has sold some Amels multiple times, first when they were new and up to 6 times as resales. Without a doubt, Joel knows Amels and he is one of the few brokers in the world that I recommend. Joel is amazingly linked to Amel and one of Amel’s biggest supporters. Joel has also personally owned two Super Maramus and an Amel 54.

When you say it doesn’t start, can you be more specific. It doesn’t crank or it cranks and will not fire?

Hello, looking for some troubleshooting tips for my Volvo penta on my 55#13

 

After replacing the starter battery the engine doesn't start. May be my last try to start the engine with the old starter battery was damaging the pcu. I measure at pin B32 only 10.5 Volt. All the relays and fuses are ok.

 

In the engine room I find a box 12 and 24 Volt with Murphy Relais. I think this is for the two alternators.

 

Any help is very much appreciated.

Hi Dan:  

I recently had similar symptoms on our dishwasher  (SM 335), fixed it to sell the boat.  It indeed was a smoked capacitor on the pump motor.  My experience is that any electrical problem aboard the boat is that any capacitor in the circuit has failed unless proven otherwise.  

Access was by removing the gimbled stove and the crash bar in front of it, removing the Amel cabinetry panel on the forward face of the dishwasher (4 screws as I recall), removing the metal panel on the forward face of the dishwasher (several sheet metal screws), and removing two sheet metal screws on the port side of the bottom panel to allow that panel to drop down somewhat so my hand could reach to the outboard (port) aft side of the enclosure to access the capacitor.  The capacitor is in the far back of the outboard side of the housing below the washer vessel.   It is a stud mount, 5 microfarad 470 VAC  that I obtained from Mouser Electronics (2 including shipping to Puerto Rico for $21 in 2020)   https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/epcos-tdk/b32332i6505j82/?qs=A6ThuIxGArANd2wDnaK6CA%3D%3D&countrycode=US&currencycode=USD

Hi Dan,

we had a similar problem in marinas with 50 hertz. 
Or does it also react like this on gen-set?

If yes I could ask the Austrian dealer for Eumenia ( he is a specialist for this not-any-more-existing brand but doesn’t speak English) if he has an idea about the reason for this nuisance.
His website is:

Hello, looking for some troubleshooting tips for my Eumenia dishwasher on SM#387.

It powers up, and runs thru the cycle: 1)locks the lid, 2)pumps any residual water out, 3) fills with water, 4) heats the water, 5) drains and repeats the cycle for rinse. But it does not pump and spray any water up on to the dishes.  

I have not tried to remove or access the unit.  I suspect either a pump is Frozen or a capacitor?  

I did not notice and peculiar smells or noises.  We did successfully run it a couple times back November or December? 

Anyone with experience with this that they can share would be appreciated.

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

Fuel Bladders

Mark Erdos
 

I ask this more out of curiosity than anything else. What are people opinions of fuel bladders for excess diesel on longer passages?

 

I have seen some conversations where owners have bladders atop the aft cabin and lashed to the hand rails. To me, this seems like it would be a lot of weight in the wrong place. How does the fuel not cause a greater angle of heel and, the bigger question,  are the hand-hold railings strong enough to hold the weight of potentially shifting diesel (0.832kg/litre)?

 

 

 

With best regards,

 

Mark

After all his years with Amel, Joel absorbed some pretty good French from the Captain - I'm sure he can deliver his message in all three languages - English, French and American.

Sorry for interrupting at the rudder packing again….

then you put a lot of brain and craft into finding so many hiding places. Hats off! 
It's like Easter here in Germany: you hide chocolate eggs in the garden, then the children can look for them and eat them.

I should be working on the rudder packing gland . . . but . . .

Instead, I made a list of over two dozen places to hide objects which could then only be found by a dog or an experienced Amel owner, but can be retrieved by the person who knows where to look in under a minute.

My list doesn’t include hiding things in plane sight, like slipping an iPad between books on a shelf, or putting spare cash in the trash can under the plastic liner.

I am with Mark on the question of theft. Thieves want an easy kill, so leave a couple of twenties on the chart table, and stow the “valuables” out of sight. The thief will have more cash in pocket than he’ll get from pawning your used stuff, and you’ll be spared the much greater expense of replacing it (think: cell phone, iPad, binoculars, or VHF radio).


Just a thought . . . Now everyone back to work . . . And would someone please look at my questions on the rudder packing gland?

Description:

All,

 

It is my true pleasure to announce our next ZOOM meeting for 10 April at 2000 UTC.

 

The Subject of this meeting is “How to work with a broker to Buy or Sell your Amel." Included will be tips from one of the world's most experienced Amel brokers, Joel Potter.

 

I asked Joel Potter to place some of his Amel knowledge and his love of the brand aside for this ZOOM meeting. I asked Joel to use his experience to help you understand how to best work with a yacht broker as a Buyer and as a Seller. I also asked him to provide you with some inside information and tips on how to work with any broker. I do not think that you will find this “inside information” and tips anywhere.

 

If you own an Amel, someday you will be selling her and a few tips can be worth thousands. If you plan on buying an Amel, chances are you will hear advice that will be “priceless.”

 

Joel Potter began his Amel selling career 40 years ago in 1981. Since that time and up to the present Joel has sold Amel yachts, almost exclusively. In 2015, Joel retired from selling new Amel boats after nearly 35 years of being Amels exclusive representative for all of North America in order to concentrate on selling preowned Amel boats.   

 

Joel has sold some Amels multiple times, first when they were new and up to 6 times as resales. Without a doubt, Joel knows Amels and he is one of the few brokers in the world that I recommend. Joel is amazingly linked to Amel and one of Amel’s biggest supporters. Joel has also personally owned two Super Maramus and an Amel 54.

Date and Time:

Amel Yacht Owners' Group April Gathering: Time: Apr 10, 2021 20:00 GMT

I thought that we after 15 years owner ship, knew all places on our SM, but obviously not. Or we know of the place but don’t consider it as a secret spot. 

Some places are super to stove away things in. It can take years before you find the stuff again.

But as I am a curious person, can someone e-mail me about this secret place?

Hi Stephan,
Sorry for interrupting at the rudder packing again….

then you put a lot of brain and craft into finding so many hiding places. Hats off! 
It's like Easter here in Germany: you hide chocolate eggs in the garden, then the children can look for them and eat them.
Can you share your recommendations with us here in the forum? We do not want to trade drugs, weapons or ammunition. But we don't want to leave a good watch or iPad lying around on the NavTable either.
Thanks for your support. Or do any other members here on the forum have any other tips?

THX and best wishes. stay safe and Happy Easter.

I should be working on the rudder packing gland . . . but . . .

Instead, I made a list of over two dozen places to hide objects which could then only be found by a dog or an experienced Amel owner, but can be retrieved by the person who knows where to look in under a minute.

My list doesn’t include hiding things in plane sight, like slipping an iPad between books on a shelf, or putting spare cash in the trash can under the plastic liner.

I am with Mark on the question of theft. Thieves want an easy kill, so leave a couple of twenties on the chart table, and stow the “valuables” out of sight. The thief will have more cash in pocket than he’ll get from pawning your used stuff, and you’ll be spared the much greater expense of replacing it (think: cell phone, iPad, binoculars, or VHF radio).


Just a thought . . . Now everyone back to work . . . And would someone please look at my questions on the rudder packing gland?

Thanks,

Boaters invoiced for damage to dock during a hurricane

Mark & Debbie Mueller
 

I read the attached article regarding invoices slip renters are receiving due to the damage caused be Hurricane Isaias.  This could be an expanding risk to boat owners in the future beyond the direct risk of the storm.

Bill Rouse advised me that "This is not the first time. NIKIMAT was charged for damage to the marina in St. Martin".  This is a risk that might be worth further investigation with your insurance carrier.

Re: Jordan series drogue.

eric freedman
 

Hi,

I do not know how the cleats on your Amel are configured.

However, on the Amel Super Maramu the bridle of the drogue must go between the

the backstays. If you run them outside you will rip out the SSB antenna.

When the bridle is inside the backstays you cannot tighten one to change the direction of the boat

This  will deform the backstay. We just live with however the boat sits to the sea. We also add chafe gear to the bridle where it is near the backstays. We monitor the chafe gear every hour.

 

It is a bad idea to connect the bridle to the winches. They are not made to take a shock load and might be ripped out of the coaming. (That was a quote from Mr. Jordan)

I also know you reinforced your rear cleats too. I don’t think we will do that. So considering a yoke between two either two cleats on each side or a cleat and the main winch for possible steering. Any thoughts on that?  Negatives or positives?  Who has thought this through and has a solution other than reinforcement of the rear cleat?  Or is that the only safe method?  

 

Many thanks

Some of you might know of my experiences with the Jordan Series Drogue.

It is a lifesaver and I thought you would find the article interesting.

I do not leave without it.
