The company is reliable.  The name of the company is new but not the company itself which has been active on the market for decades (Russo Yachting).
Mr Russo retired 1 or 2 years ago.

Slavko,

The previous (also the only previous) owner moved the starter battery into the engine room.   I kind of think it's a good idea to have the engine start battery in the engine room, so I left it there.  Shorter high current cables are, the better.

Hello Victor,
I had the same answer from Amel in Hyeres. Seanergie is the new name of a company named "Rousseau" before. They are well known round here and I think they did a lot of Amels. After some phone calls with them I decided to go with them (appointment in July) . They use Acmo hardware and do there own crimping with cables from WDI from Germany.

Hello Elja.
Sorry that I haven't been able to answer you before. 
Do you have plans to come to Corfú? The closing is quite heavy and I don't have a car to take it to the post office...

Tom and Bill,

 

Ir is indeed a voltage regulator intended to protect filament bulbs (particularly the tricolor) mounted on the mast. I had the exactly same installation on my SM 232.

Is it possibly a voltage regulator someone installed for LED mast lighting?

Hi all,
While putting in a new VHF antenna I noticed this electrical black box at the base of the mast. It seems to have cooling fins, with five wires coming in from the mast. Is it a remnant of the old B&G instrument system?

Thanks as always.

Re: ACMO and mechanical end fittings

 

Nick,

If you specify mechanical fittings with ACMO, they will make your rigging kit with mechanical fittings where possible. You will find that mechanical fittings are not possible at all terminations. This is probably another reason to use ACMO to supply the rigging kit.

Re: ACMO and mechanical end fittings

Hello Nicolas. I have never had a need to contact or work with ACMO but I know plenty of people who have who praise them uniformly with the possible exception of the time it takes to get an order fulfilled. Good people are always the busiest…

 

I know that ACMO offers mechanical end fittings at a substantial markup over swages. In my opinion they are more than worth  it. I have never seen or heard of a mechanical fitting that failed without outside provocation.

 

As I have mentioned, I used to be a rigger as a teenager and qualified for the job only because I weighed 75 LBS. and I could be put up to the masthead easier than anyone else. I was too young to know I would die one day so I fearlessly/stupidly engaged in antics that could have brought that moment in time sooner rather than later. I did learn a lot from very experienced adults in the shop. I have a great appreciation for riggers that know their stuff and practice it professionally.

 

I have been providing clients to Roger and Nance and Underwood rigging here in Fort Lauderdale almost since I sold my first Amel 40 years ago. I echo the praise they get on this owners group because they deeply deserve it. I have never had a dissatisfied customer that Nance and Underwood assisted. They are not the ones for you as they are an ocean away.

 

As you search for solutions to your rigging challenges, talk to everyone who will listen to you. Find a group of professional riggers who earn your confidence and have buckets full of people who recommend them. In my more than four decades of selling offshore cruising yachts exclusively, I have learned many of the most important things to keep in mind. First, keep the water on the outside of the boat. All of it. Second, don’t ever lose your steering. Ever. Third, having your rig come down will wreck your day and might even kill you.

 

Good luck with your rigging.

 

All the best,

Joel

At that age you won’t find anyone re-certify those things anymore. 

I’m on Saint Martin and the fire guy there did not even look twice at those things and I had them replaced with new versions of the same.

Hi, replaced the Oring, leak solved.


Re: Boom Outhaul

Bob Grey
 

This is a common problem I have experienced with the outhaul rope getting salt saturated and tightening up and causing the thermal cutouts to stop the outhaul, as the rope is too tight, just loosen the rope. There is a small 4 mm rope that connects the 12 mm outhaul rope to the track car, this needs to retied.

the same problem occurs if the Vang is over tightened.

Re: tb/AMEL 54 electric water pump/

Alan Leslie
 

I would think that the reason for the centrifugal pump is to eliminate the impeller changing on the Onan.
The impellers don't last very long in most cases. That's my experience also.
I have a March pump which I will install when I run out of stock of impellers, but I will completely bypass the impeller pump and feed directly into the heat exchanger.
I first saw the March pump on Amelit with the previous owner.

Re: Boom Outhaul

Dominique Sery
 

In 2017, when I bought my boat, the boom motor failed.
The engine was running and moving the empty cart but not unfurling the sail.
I took it apart and found that the yellow crown (brass? Bronze?) was completely worn out. The stainless steel worm was in perfect condition.
I couldn't find a workshop to make a custom crown, so I bought an angle gear from Amel (very expensive).
Easy enough to change by yourself.
Conclusion, be careful not to use force to unfurl the sail in a strong wind (release the sheet from the boom before tucking in the sail unfurling line to avoid wearing the crown with the worm screw)
