Mark,

 

That is an Onan water flow sensor. It was added to the Onan probably after your hull number...probably around hull #300. Of course the control PCB is different also to handle additional sensors etc. Interestingly, Onan later dropped the water flow sensor. I assume it was redundant because of coolant temperature switch/sensor and exhaust elbow temperature switch/sensor.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Aft Climma AC, SM

Hi Bill,

The only issue I can see with mounting the A/C unit “backwards” is that the temperature sensor is mounted on the front of the coil. This might make the sensor think it is sensing  a different temperature than the ambient air in the head .

If I were to have designed  the thermostat setup ,in the aft cabin, I would put the thermostat in the cabin with an electronic sensor attached, and not in the head. I did this when I installed my Dometic A/C unit.

With the old unit the head was always warmer than the aft cabin. Now the aft cabin is at the correct temperature.

Gary,

 

I am sure that you already solved this issue because when something is not right on your SM, you always make it right. However, I need to tell you that I remember meeting a guy who once owned a SM. In fact he was a super-duper engineer that invented the turbine propulsion that makes Navy subs run silent. He also invented the nuclear aircraft carrier turbines that cause the carrier develop unbelievable speed. I can't write that speed here because it is highly classified.

 

I think this guy told me that he mounted his aft Climma AC in a roundabout orientation to improve the Venturi effect, thus doubling fan output. Maybe he was involved somehow in your SM.😀

Could someone else with a hull number close (we are 209) take a quick look see and let me know how your unit is oriented?

He is going to be repowering his 54. He is interested in discussing all of the necessary rigging that was utilized if you removed your engine with a halyard.

I apologize for being in the middle of this discussion, but my client is going to be out of reach for about two weeks.

Hi Bill, what was the total amp load.I wince when I read of the load some people put on the system. If it was high and something more started up it could have been a simple over load. Other than that it could be a failure in the hot water element if that was turned on. Couple of simple possibilities.

Hey everyone -


Went out for a beautiful day yesterday. Everything was perfect until I plugged back into the dock and flipped the charger on. About a minute after there was a loud "pop" and a plume of white smoke that came from the engine room. Upon further investigation I found that the charger blew. (See picture in mark up). All is good and again I came to respect the redundancies on this boat even more. Problem temporarily solved by switching on the heart charger located in the aft cabin. (Usually I only use this charger as a supplement with my primary (Victron Centaur 24/60 while on generator power) It looks like a resister blew and the charger is less than 2 years old. Can anyone chime in on a  possible reason beside faulty equipment? Voltages all check out at post and plug end. The boat did a good job protecting itself and popped the breaker.  Just looking for some additional comments. Many thanks.

I really don't like the Amel rub rail (one of my few complaints), and rubbing on a pile and you've damaged the gel coat.

So, I'm thinking of adding a rubber extrusion to the rub rail.  Mate USA sells a track you would screw into the current rub rail where the white stripe is.  Then you would press on the "Soft Insert".  I ordered a 6.5 foot section of the track (one piece) and a one-foot section of the vinyl insert for a test fit and it's a close thing whether they would fit or not.  Next time I'm somewhere for a month I plan on ordering a longer section of each to install to see how it fits around the curves.

The vinyl rubrail is ordered to length so there are no splices and it also has end sections. The track comes in 6.5foot sections.  If you want to look it up it's Item T130-141-006-2 (Rigid Track) and T130-141-007-W

I've seen several SM's with a stainless bead screwed to the Amel rub rail, but I don't like the look.

Has anyone done something else to protect the gel coated "rub rail"?  

The other way of handling the dings I suppose is to just paint every few years.  The white stripe is just auto detail tape according to the fiberglass guy who did some repair work for us.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Unknown spare parts [1 Attachment]

Danny and Yvonne SIMMS
 

Hi Paul,

The foam seals go on the bow thruster shaft above the propeller gearbox and are designed to compress between it and the top of the recess when the thruster is raised preventing water surge forcing water into the hull when under way. There is considerable pressure created as the boat punches into waves. There is a lip seal inside the boat on top of the housing but without the foam seals stopping that surge it would fail early. The foam seals should be changed at the biannual haulout as should the oil in the thruster and the lip seal on the bow thruster  propeller shaft. A lot of SM have water leaks here but with proper adjustment of the lift mechanism to get the right pressure on the foam seals and regular replacement of the upper lip seal there will be no problem.

Kind Regards

Danny

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Onan parts in Martinique

Mark Erdos
 

Alex,

 

Looking forward to seeing you again.

 

The mooring situation is really hit and miss. If you arrive early in the day you may have a chance of snagging one. Moorings are full today with two boats in the marina waiting.

 

Best advice is to plan to hang in the marina for a few days. If you get a buoy, great. If not, you can still enjoy Bonaire until a buoy opens. Morning is the best time to check for open buoys by dink or call other boats on VHF 77. The moorings are first come first serve, no reservations, stay on it for as long as you want (dependent on your visa). If you are docked in the marina and are using your dink to check for a mooring, have something such as a fender or life-jacket to tie to it until you can get the mother-ship over. Alert the neighboring boats that you are claiming it. Else, there is a chance it'll be gone before you get back.

 

No need for a reservation at the marina. There are plenty of slips open and there is also a long side-tie dock with space. If you arrive at night or on a Sunday, there will not be staff to help. Best to tie at the side-tie pier until business hours. The marina monitors VHF 17. Carlos is the manager and speaks English.

 

To check in with customs and immigration you can either walk or take the dinghy to their dock. The walk is 25 mins or 2 km from the marina. The building is located here: 12°08'57.6"N 68°16'37.0"W (paste this into google maps) - It is possible to tie the dink at their dock on the south side of the North pier (if no cruise ships are in). You will see two big tugs and a couple of customs boats. Tie next to the customs boats at the area not reserved for customs. There is a guard at the gate and you tell him you are going to the customs office.

 

Hope you have a great sail here. Cream Puff is in the marina on B dock. We will be here for a couple of months. Look forward to meeting you when you arrive :)

 

If you have other questions, we're glad to help.

 

 

With best regards,

 

Mark

The seal for the mainsailmotor is much smaller.
When I asked Amel in Hyeres about this motor,
they told me, that today the motor has a little hole on the bottom to let the water run out and if you look at the new Amel 50 they made a protecting Cover for the motor.
I grease around the Top and will protect the part with tape for the Winter.
