Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Autoprop vs Maxprop and specs of each

Colin - ex SV Island Pearl
 

Just to close this off, a big thank you to all who commented here, and especially to Bill R. who has been direct mailing me each day with good advice since.

Our problem turned out to be the Autoprop where we had large sections of Micron 350 paint peeled off and slight gruffness in the blades movement since we did not grease them on last haul-out.

Yesterday we completed wet sanded the blades of the autoprop and also re-greased the prop sufficiently till all the old grease was expelled and just clean grease exiting. After this the blades now turn beautifully without any resistance and in sea trials today there was no trace of the previous vibrations at 2000 RPM's+.

Much appreciated and we can now enjoy the beautiful Cape Town for a month or so before continuing our circumnavigation departing here for the Caribbean in late November.

Hi Danny

Nice to hear from you and thank you for these tips.

I had not thought of greasing under water but of course if one pushes the grease right through and out there would be no risk of saltwater ingress. Good thought.

Of course I need say no more good things about the brilliance of the Super Maramu's as I would be preaching to the converted on this site.

Best regards

Hi Colin,

great that you are going so well. There were queries on the forum a while back about when to reef, when to heave to, and when to wish you were not there. Your experience mirrors mine. The SM is a phenomenal off shore design and she looks after you in conditions where other designs are in trouble or at the least giving the crew a hard time. We did a big crossing (1200 miles, 200 a day) in boisterous conditions and all my crew including Yvonne agreed if we lived to 100 we would never get a dream run like that again. A Beneteau 50 came in after us saying, "Oh my God, it was hell out there" Horses for courses. Is your wife (sorry forget her name) doing the passages with you? As to greasing the prop. Mate of mine once said to me, grease and oil are the cheapest spare parts you will ever buy. I have greased mine in water easily (so long as you are not prone to dropping little screws). The trick is to have several spares, then you will never drop one.

Kind Regards

Danny

Hi Alan

Thanks for those comments which make me wonder if this is just a prop grease issue??? Let me explain ...
Firstly I should say that this boat has never been cruised before Lauren and I set off 1.75 years ago. Up until before I owned it the previous owner had done just 600 hrs on the engine and half that on the generator in 10 years of ownership, plus employed an Amel technician bi-weekly for 10 years to care for her. Based on this I doubt that I could have any U Drive issues or major prop wear as we have been very careful owners too.

I had originally intended to do my normal 2 year haul-out in Cape Town but we became pinned down by bad weather in Durban unable to get any 33hr+ weather windows to sail down to East London on this notoriously dangerous coastline. Because of this, and with time for the Cape Town haul-out dwindling, I haul out in Durban instead, and did the normal prop wearing bearing replacement, bottom paint, plus lifted the waterline stripe.

On turning the prop blades out the water they didn't seem as smooth as normal, and on top of this, in my rush to get back into the water when a possible good weather window was forming, I did not re-grease the prop. That could possibly be the source of my issues, and rather foolish as I have always been so painstakingly careful to follow each and every step to the letter!! In fact I have never greased this prop as I simply sent it back to Bruntons last time to do the bearing change and grease in their factory.

In order to make a run directly for Cape Town (900nm approx) I sailed out of Durban early into the end of the previous SW front and therefore had to motor sail for a day before we picked up good wind and current. Over the next 3 days we shot down the coast breaking all our past records with 3 consecutive 200nm days with our best ever 24hrs clocking up 225nm!! Great sailing indeed and we ran as hard as we could direct for Cape Town right out at sea with pole out and all sails up until rounding Cape Agulus (most southern tip of Africa) where we had to turn NW into un-predicted 30kts head wind and 4+ knot adverse current making for hard motoring to maintain just 3 kts forward motion. When I say hard, that means max 2000 RPM on the Yanmar 75 (very seldom would I ever run the motor above this).

It was at this time that I noticed more prop noise and that there was a slight resultant vibration on the top of the UDrive unit only, not on the main engine side at all. We immediately reduced to usual 1400 - 1600 max revs and crawled into Cape Town to ensure no damage could be done. At those revs there was absolutely no vibration visable at all.

I will drop you a personal email sometime regarding the Indian Ocean crossing as it has been awesome and I hghly recommend it, but course you can also follow our videos on "Sailing Island Pearl"  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmvAE1BtOM7J8orw237BDgQ?view_as=subscriber , but in summary from far east Indonesia through Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Maldives, Chagos, Rodrigues, Mauritius, Runion, Madagascar and now South Africa we have spent 1.75 years in the Indian Ocean and absolutely loved every minute of it. We have faced 50+ knots, 6m+ seas and this boat has been unbelievable as it never ever felt unsafe or out of control to either myself or any crew on board. These are outstanding boats indeed and I learn to respect Captain Amel more and more every day that I sail and live aboard the Amel Super Maramu.

Hi Colin,


i don't know where that information came from about later SMs having Maxprops.
Elyse is 2004 and we have the Autoprop.
i changed the bearings 4 years ago, even though there were no issues. It wasn't a difficult job with the right tools.
 We've since put 1300 hours on the engine and no problems with the Autoprop, no strange vibrations.
I grease it every time we are out of the water for whatever reason.

We'll do the bearings again next haul for C-drive, antifoul etc.

How was your Indian Ocean crossing ?

Thanks for the feedback. 
Are the explorer cmap digital charts worthwhile?  This would mean using a Cmap chart reader software on a PC, as my BG Zeus chart plotter isn’t compatible with CMAP format.  What experience do any of you have with PC based chart readers for this format?

Navionics charts work well but the best charts are the Explorer Charts (paper guides). They show anchorages and note areas of good holding and the depths are very accurate. In the Abaco Islands the best charts we found were in Steve Dodge’s The Cruising Guide to Abaco, Bahamas. This guide include routes in the Abacos with a nine foot draft.

Good morning James,

I spent 1.5 years in the Bahamas and used the Explorer Charts, I definitely recommend them.
They are a wealth of informations on anchoring recommendations, approach, etc.

I will also add to the quality of their paper.
After Hurricane Irma, NIKIMAT was 3 months and 1 week under water. When raised I saw the charts, I rinse them, dry them, was going to keep them as memories, but another Super Maramu owners ask for them, so now they are continuing their journey.

I also used Navionics and was definitely happy with them, I found it more precise than Garmin which I also had.

Sincerely, Alexandre

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Sailorman DC-DC converters

greatketch@...
 

My boat has "Sailor" N420 power supplies for the VHF, the HYDRA, and the PERMANENT, each rated for 8 amps.  Negative is common with the 24 Volt supply.

I also have a different arrangement for the SSB power supply, it LOOKS factory, a nice mount on a removable wood panel like other Amel installs... but maybe not.  

It has a pair of ASTRON 2412-20 units connected to the double pole breaker, each is rated for 20 Amps and the output is paralleled. They are NOT isolated negative units.  They can't be, they have only three connections...

In the original Amel SM2k installation, the 3 Sailor 24-12VDC Converters powered:
VHF - Only VHF radio
HYDRA - Only B&G instruments
PERMANENT - AM/FM Radio, 12VDC outlet at Nav table, Cig Lighter and Chain Counter. This converter stays ON even when main battery switches are OFF, and has a toggle switch to turn it OFF.

Amel installed an optional ICOM 24 to 12VDC Converter for a SSB Radio. This was installed with a double-pole breaker which disconnected 24VDC positive and negative Poles.

If you have any other arrangement, maybe it isn't original.

You are right. The only time  I have added a DC-DC convertor was for the SSB. So, that’s probably why I remember this being the case. Since the other convertors are running equipment not connected to the bonding, it makes sense they wouldn’t have to be isolated.

If I am not mistaken the Dc to Dc converter on the SSB has to have an isolated ground as

it indirectly connected to the bonding, via the underwater SSB grounding plates.

I can see no reason that you would need isolated converters as it is straight Dc to DC without any bonding involved.

Mike,

 

I'm somewhat guessing here since the turbocharged gasoline engines that I am most familiar with DO NOT have "smoke limiters".  However, I think that the damaged smoke limiter tube could be the cause of your inability to reach maximum RPM.  The smoke limiter is likely limiting the amount of fuel being injected at low boost pressure.  That is how you reduce smoke on a relatively low compression turbocharged diesel engine.  As you load up the engine and boost pressure rises, that limitation should be removed in order to achieve maximum power.  The tube that you say is damaged is likely the boost pressure "signal" that is used by the smoke limiter to limit fuel injection.  If the tube is not sending the boost signal to the smoke limiter, it would continue to limit fuel delivery even as boost pressure rises.  If fuel delivery is limited, so is power output and maximum RPM.  I would replace the tube.  Assuming the rest of the smoke limiter is working, I think it just might solve your problem.  Let us know either way!

TMD22 Turbo to Injector Pump tube

Mike Ondra
 

15OCT18 Further research has revealed that the tube leading from the turbo to the fuel injector pump is known as the “turbocharger-fuel injection pump smoke limiter”, also known as a “boost compensator”.  See schematic below. It would seem that pressures in the turbo through this tube affect the output of the injector pump. “smoke limiter” may imply that this compensates at low RPM reduces fuel throughput and smoke. Might improper function of this mechanism impact top end RPM?

8OCT18 After removing the turbo in the process of diagnosing a low RPM (2400 max with clean bottom and prop) issue and cleaning it up, it seems to be OK. However there is a damaged tube that leads from the top of the Injector Pump to a fitting near the bottom of the turbo. In the diagram below it starts with part 61 at the Injector Pump and proceeds to the turbo directly in our installation (we don't have the intervening parts 60-65, just part 28) The full kit as shown is Part 57. On ours the entire connection is with a small (maybe 1/8") black flexible plastic(?) tube. Does anyone know the functionality of this connection? Might it contribute to low RPM? Seems odd to be feeding diesel fuel to the turbo.

Santorin cockpit light wiring

Craig Briggs
 

Does anyone know where the wires from the Santorin cockpit light are terminated? The + side is switched with the main salon breaker, but the wire runs to a remote terminal. I've got a fault on the - side and am guessing it may be connected at the nav station terminals, with the wires running in the overhead over to the nav station. If anyone has traced these wires down I'd appreciated knowing where they are. I suspect the SM may be wired similarly, but don't really know.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Insurance question in case of total loss

Good evening Jean Pierre,

I was actually going to switch to Y Insurance.
I think their conditions were straight forward and reasonable.

Sincerely, Alexandre

Hello Alexandre,
As you know, I’ve left de
Lassée (Helvetia) because of their poor service.  Good at
collecting their fees but “bar stewards” at paying out
on claims.
I now use Y Yacht Insurance in UK
for what its worth.  They have a plain language policy
conditions and have an excellent reputation for settling
claims quickly.
Best of luck,

Dear Amel owners, 

On my insurance policy (Helvetia
subscribed through insurance DeLassee) it says (article
8.4.4) that my insurance is automatically canceled in case
of total loss - BUT (last line of that paragraph) that the
insurance only stops when then settlement has been
paid.  

Which is why the insurance still
ask me to pay the premium for this year and likely the next
one (since it is 25% less than the agreed value I am
contesting it).  

Does your insurance says the same
thing?

Thanks in advance,
sincerely, Alexandre<scan.jpg>
