Re: Bow thruster does not work in one direvtion

There are very different views if it is good to run the generator and battery charger when using the Bowthruster despite the recommendation of AMEL. Perhaps Bill Rouse or other experienced sailors have to comment on that. If the batteries are well charged by the alternator of the engine and they are not very old I need a second opinion on that issue.

Hi Mohammad

I had the same problem two times. Every time, it was the solenoid on the bow thruster that did not work anymore.
If the batteries are weak and you use the bow thruster without starting the generator and charger, it can burn the solenoid. 
Every time it happened, the bow thruster worked only in one direction.

Re: Bow thruster does not work in one direction

Mohammad Shirloo
 

Thanks to all for the quick and helpful assistance.

 

We did work on the Bow Thruster yesterday and it did turn out to be bad contact at the control box plug, which some CorrosionX (thank you Bill R for introducing us to CorrosionX a few years back)  and multiple plugging and unplugging, resolved, for now. Sometimes you get lucky with simply solutions.  I will have to order the control box, IPC relay, micro switches and maybe a joystick, as I believe, we may have to revisit this issues in the future.

 

Since we had the bow thruster cover removed, I did notice a squealing sound while the unit was being lowered and raised. It appears to be coming from the worm gear, but it is hard to tell. Has anyone  run into this and do you know if there is a way to lubricate this gearing and whether the motor for the up/down function needs maintenance?

As you are probably aware, Phenergan can be sedating, but the sedative effect can be countered by amphetamines or ephedrine. Because of the abuse potential of amphetamines, they are not used in the military for treatment of side effects, but the last I heard the military does use ephedrine. Typically they use 25mg of Phenergan and 25 of Ephedrine for embarked Marines on a routine basis.


On Revelation, we've tried Stugeron, but did not find it effective, either personally, or for passengers.


NASA, many years ago, made their own "Scope/Dex". It was a large gel capsule with scopolamine and dexedrine tablets inside.  It worked, but not as well as promethazine (PHENERGAN), so Scope/Dex was discontinued.


Studies were done by NASA with Scopolamine patches.  There was a 10-fold variation in Scopolomine blood levels. with the patch. There are multiple determinants for its absorption.  I still remember one of the volunteers, an engineer in our project, who went from being a quiet, shy person to a "drunken, 'life of the party".  She had to be taken home from work...  Trying the patch, on-shore, would be advisable for anyone contemplating its use at sea, although absorption could still be dramatically different "at sea".


We used Phenergan on Day 1 of our flight.  It was highly effective, and in that setting, didn't seem to cause sedation.  Giving it early, before the person is on the verge of vomiting, works best.  At sea, I take it at the first sign of nausea, as it's better to prevent than "treat".  In space, alertness did not seem to be a problem.  I've taken it as a crewmember, doing studies on the NASA KC-135 (aka "The Vomit Comet").  It does make people sleepy, but they can function better than if they were nauseated and vomiting.


There's no question that being in the cockpit, fresh air, focusing on the horizon,  or even letting the person steer the boat all help.  "Steering" helps even if the boat is actually being steered by the autopilot.

Motion-sickness is thought to be caused by a mismatch between the vestibular and ocular system signals, so moving as though steering the boat reduces the mismatch.  


If someone's nausea has proceeded to vomiting, use a suppository.   When a vomiting person takes Phenergan and then vomits again, there's no way to tell how much of the drug was absorbed.  Too much can be toxic.

 Areas,
I elected to lift the dodger since I was not confident in my ability to do a good woodworking job in Greece. My other two choices were to cut the hatch in half or cut the trim and rebuild it.
The front of the dodger refused to cooperate. It is somehow locked in place. I wonder if someone put an extra screw up into it and then covered it with the headlining. Graham Johnston’s on Zephyr has lifted his twice, with no problem. Not me.
Bill Rouse posted the photo of how a prior owner of Gerhard Mueller’s Sharki had cut the trim. Gerhard shared that with me when he got to his boat in May. 
I could not see a way to cut and veneer the hatch without the wiper causing problems with the veneer.
Bill pushed me over the edge by suggesting the Gerhard solution. I had found some teak molding from a prior boat on board that would work, look OK and cover up my butchery with an oscillating saw.
The hatch is out and ready for veneering tomorrow.
I wanted to recount my experience to illustrate the multi faceted support of the forum. My solution was an amalgamation of several prior experiences by forum members, modified by my situation. I’m really looking forward to not having an eyesore masquerading as a hatch.
Thanks to everyone.

I have taken out all the obvious bolts and the dodger is releasing except that it seems anchored firmly at the pointy end of the pare brise.
There is a ferrule (guiding the traveler adjustment) at the “pointy end” with two screws. They are out. No evidence of fasteners under the headlining at the “pointy end.”
Seems to me you should be able to take out the bolts and it should lift off, but it isn’t. It is rock solid at the front end. I must be missing something. Henri magic?

Mohammad,

In the PDF discussing the troubleshooting I did, I discussed all the US based suppliers for the different things purchased. I used IMTRA for the IPC relay, and received it within a couple of days, shipped inside the US.  I just checked and didn’t see a Mediterranean based distributer, but If you figure out that this is the item, I can assist with ordering local and getting it over to you.

As for other parts, the micro switches would be the item I think you might want to have on hand. The details for ordering them are also based on getting them from US. I believe they are actually European, so you might have better luck on those. Spare lip seals are needed for the routine maintenance. 22*40*7, you need 2 for the propellesr, and then the 60*80*12 is needed for the drive leg going down through the bottom of the hull. Everything else seemed pretty available from routine sources.

Re: Volvo D3-110 Sensor - Spare Sensor Sets

Hi Ruedi,
Dear Amelians with VP D3-110 C.. engines,

You have hit my nerve, your thought to have an assortment of the most important sensors with such a "modern" computerized engine, I had quite a while. We had an engine problem years ago in Greece where the local mechanics (not Volvo people, they were far away) did not get along. First they disassembled and cleaned the turbo, then checked the electronics with voltmeters...it was a nightmare. Last was tipped on the boost pressure sensor, which was oily and defective. But then had to be ordered in Sweden, because the Greek Volvo importer had none in stock. The sensor has cost double (about 280 €) and was mounted in half an hour. The whole hassle was for us then 3 weeks houseboat vacation. No engine, Not good. But the engine is now running fine.
Some time ago (our common concern about this issue) I then bought at a BOSCH car Service the appropriate BoostPressure sensor, suitable for the Volvo 5-cylinder engine. we checked all varieties.

Original BOSCH number 0 261 230 295. four-plug connection, 1 screw hole for mounting. Cost 48(!) Euro.
There was once a discussion in the forum about the matching sensor, I will soon take the new one to the ship and compare it with the defective one (I have kept). If it fits: Great. if not, he will be exchanged.
Hope that helps you further. If you get a parts list for the sensors through Volvo France, let me know. Maybe we can make a collective order for the other friends with this engine, we have synergies and can save a lot of money.(Like the passed order with UltraMarine Anchors, safe more than 1000€....)

Best regards, stay healthy and fair winds!

Try Bosch automotive sensors they worked for me and were very inexpensive

Dear Amelia’s  

 

Because our Volvo D3-110 is running with some sensors, I try to find out which of those are most important and vital to have as spare. I do have the D3-110 C and I’m quite happy with it, but I feel better to have those sensors who could fail as spare.

 

Does anyone have a list and a source of those vital sensors?

Can anybody let us know which of those you have spare and where you ordered them?

 

@Bill Rose: Do I need to have all these sensors with isolated ground? Not sure about these?

I found some with 3 Pins, four pins and also 2 pins. The “m prop valve” Sensor has only 2 pins and therefore most likely not with isolated ground?? Correct?

Hope to get some feedback about the mystery - sensors ;-)
Happy Sailing

Ruedi,

 

The best advice I can give you to get a list is to contact Volvo France for that list with your model and serial number. You have model C and I believe the latest model is at least H. 

 

Volvo France is the ones who modified at least some, maybe all of the D3s for isolated ground. There might be a different sensor between some models. I am not sure of that. 

 

The sensor that seems to be the most common sensor to fail and cause problems is the boost sensor followed by the oil pressure sensor, but this is not an analytical answer.

 

If/when you get an answer, please let me know, and if possible, ask which models of the D3, in addition to the C, the list will apply to. 

Best,

Thanks, Nick,

 Good to hear that you're afloat. We have had some great sails over the past 10 days--but heavy rain and gusts to 40k coming to Poros yesterday, thankfully on a reach and we now have very clean decks.

Hi Ian,
Failing success with penetrating oil you will have to unbolt the winch and tap the central spindle out from the bottom.
I had to do this one time, actually whole job took an hour, once I accepted defeat from above.

Thanks, Arno,

Penetrating oil and brute force   now have the spindles turning. I'll keep up that application until  they are free.

Hi,

Yes the central spindle does pull out from the top. It can be stubborn at times but it should come out once you have removed the two or three inserts that sit at the top of the tower where the spindle sinks into.
You may need to use some penetrating oil to free them up a bit more.
