Re: Virgin Island Marinas or other options for leaving boat

""https://nannycay.com/marina/marina-rates/""

I can wholeheartedly recommend the marina.  The only other viable storage place would be Spanish Town in Virgin Gorda. Also a nice marina and they can lift a Super Maramu no problem (this is all pre-hurricane knowledge). 
I don't know about their rates this time around, but they were a bit less expensive than Nanny Cay in 2016. 

If you're self sufficient enough for two weeks on a mooring ball, Trellis Bay on Tortola or Leverick Bay would be my picks.  Trellis is a little quieter weather-wise, but Leverick would have someone to check in on your boat periodically.

We'll be there in late January-early February!

Best of luck,

Isn’t there a good place in Trinidad? — it is out of the hurricane zone.


Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Freshwater Pump - pressure sensing mechanical switch

Hi Barry,
Thank you for the pictures of the connection between the batteries. 
I ordered new batteries by the help of Amel in Hyeres and adjusted the connection. 
With the new batteries every thing is okay. With the old batteries voltage drops down under 24 Volt in the night and if using freshwaterpump in the night the pressure was to low to turn off the automatic pressureswitch . Imagine this problem and you know why AMEL recommends the generator running while using the bowthruster.


Have Fun with your Amel, safe sailing.

If you are looking in the BVI, Nanny Cay Marina is a good choice.  Well protected and well run.  We haven't been there since the hurricanes, but they seem to be back in close to full operation.  Well run, with lots of services right there.

Hi Wolfgang,
Have you sorted your water pump problem? When our batteries have run low we find that the pump will run longer to get up to pressure. We have had it that the pump just runs until we have put the generator on.

Virgin Island Marinas or other options for leaving boat

Hi all
This winter we would like to base Trippin in the Virgin Islands.  As I still work it's 2 weeks on and 2 weeks of December thru May and I'm looking for a safe economical option to keep Trippin
Thanks

I have created an album called ‘Stella Amel 54’ and have uploaded pics of the changeover switch/contactor on Stella. 


Re: Shore power issue

Hi Dean,
Out of curiosity, what was the problem with the shore power cord?

Hi all,
The problem was in my shore cable. I have no clue as to why this failure happened exactly when my generator was started up. Maybe it’s related, maybe not.

I have now fixed my shore cable, and all is good once more.

On the bright side... now I know all about that changeover switch 😉

Eric, I think that is the timer unit in Alexandre’s pictures. This is not present in my 54.
I do not have the big invertor, so my changeover is just between gen and shore. Maybe that’s related to inverter?

Now, to the next task ... replace the main outhaul...

Many thanks all
Dean

Thank you - well one never ceases to learn about these wonderful boats even after a Circumnavigation I had no idea about this changeover switch.

Hi Peter,

The changeover switch is located in a white plastic box behind and above the generator on the port side.
The engine room cooling fan can be dropped off the ceiling very easily to get better access.

The switch is Part number LC1 D4008 by telemecanique, although companies like Schneider also make them.
It’s a DIN rail mounted unit which accepts live/neutral from shore and generator, it then routes one of those pairs to the switchboard. It favours shore power by default, until the generator is switched on, at which time it disconnects shore power and replaces with generator power.

I have some pictures of the unit I can email to you. I don’t seem to be able to attach pictures to these messages.

Cheers
Dean

Interesting coincidence if it is Dean,

Glad you find the cause!

I was just going to mention what Eric mention about the timer, should be it top of the 7 & 8th pictures

Hope you get to meet Dave & Leanne onboard SM2K PERIGEE, they are a very nice couple from Australia as well!

Aircon climma

ngtnewington Newington
 

Hello fellow Amel owners, one of my aircon units is faulty. When it turns on there is a chattering on the relay switch that turns off/on the compressor. I have tested the compressor by bypassing the relay and it works fine. So I replaced the relay switch for a new one but it still chatters. I now suspect the pc board that controls the cycling on and off.

Does this ring a bell with anyone?

Is it something simple?

I called the UK rep for Climma who say the the PC board is no longer available and one must buy a whole new control box (£700) which is costly and probably not worth it. I am hesitant to throw money at a twelve year old AC unit!

Thanks Eric, it went well and fast using a router. Didn't do much for the bit ,probably trash that. Problem now is getting the SS nipple unscrewed from the end of the car, so that I can slide out the shaft to replace the broken springs. The one side came unscrewed easily , port side is seized , SS. and Aluminum ,not good.
Thanks,
Pat
