Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Haul out southern Sicily or Malta

Mohammad Shirloo
 

Thanks Bill. Since we are currently wintering in Licata Sicily, this was our first choice. Good to know you had a good experience with them. Any contact people at the boat yard?
 
I tried sending you an e-mail to Bill@... and the e-mail was bounced back. What is a good e-mail for you now?

I would choose Manoel Island Boatyard, Malta over di Ragusa, and did in 2013. Larger assortment of parts/material, more experience, and less price.

Hi everyone;


We need to haul out in May 2018 for our bottom paint, bow Thruster and C-drive  service. We also need to change out our batteries and possibly install an arch and solar. Looking for recommendation of yards and outfits that you have worked with and can recoomend in southern Sicily, Malta area. I have read most of the discussions on battery selection on the forum. Would appreciate recommended suppliers in the med or other areas that can ship to the med.


Thanks as always;

Hi Miles

Many thanks. I don’t think it would be very difficult. Make a template, laminate 2x6mm together, instal and screw to old flange. Glass in tabbing around the section and then the entire piece. Should be solid as all heck. I’l like to see some other SM to see what I’m aiming for though.. 

Going to make plans to see the boat and establish if it is worthwhile based on price vs cost of work.. Just hope the owner is realistic! 

Cheers!

James

Hi James,

This is not an unusual issue with older SMs.  In Martinique Amel has a person who specializes in the repair.  He cuts out the old floor and drops in a new perfectly fitting new one.  It is a quick and (I am told) not expensive procedure.  For those whose floors are still good, opening the front water tight compartment door whenever the boat is  left for some time, will delay or prevent the issue.  I also spray the wood floor with an anti-mold solution every year or so and the floors are solid after 19 years. 

Good luck,

Miles

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Amel decals replacement

Mark Erdos
 

Hello Stephanie,

 

I bit the bullet and ordered them from Amel. They were very easy to replace. I was surprised how easy the old ones came off. This is not a regular stock item for them. Sometime the decals are available, sometimes they are not.

 

When I first asked Amel, they were not available and I contacted a local sign making company. It was cost prohibitive due to the set up fees. I was glad when I asked Amel again and they had them.

 

 

 

 

With best regards,

 

Mark

Our decals are looking not so “spiffy.” I inquired at Amel and the price for a replacement set - 90 € without shipping. Has anyone found a less costly replacement? I had thought of doing a tracing and bringing it to a local sign shop. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Re: Inverter Replacement

greatketch@...
 

Our newer generation Victron MultiPlus is a bit better at idle power draw, but not wildly so.  It has three possible modes.

One is fully on and powered up.  That uses about 20 Watts if nothing else is turned on.

There are two "search modes." One powers the circuit all the time with a distorted sine wave looking for power users, and then switches to "normal" when something draws power.  This uses about 15 Watts.  

Finally is full search mode, where the output is powered up every 2 seconds or so looking for users.  If none are found, it shuts off again.  This uses about 10 Watts.

We always use the "full search" mode and have not had any problems. If we plug in a computer, it pops on right away, and and the inverter shuts itself off when we unplug it.  It has behaved "properly" with everything we have ever plugged into it.

Ian,

We installed the «PROsine 1800i Part # 806-1884 24V Hardwire w/ transfer relay», with «Remote Interface Panel Part # 808-1800» similar to what the Amel factory installed on Bill Rouse's boat.   

Whether on or off, it makes no difference to RF noise levels on any equipment on the boat that I've noticed.  Ours has worked fine and sometimes pretty hard for 4 years... in fact back in the States we used it as 24x7 power supply when on shore power given the fact all appliances onboard (down to the toothbrushes) are 230V/50Hz.

The only downside to this inverter is that it consumes somewhere between 25w and 50w just by being turned on.  I have heard that more modern inverters are more efficient when on but not actually supplying any power... evidently this inverter design is at least 15 years old.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] solar Arch

This arch I have had ordered and manufactured in Monastir, Tunisia last year for 2200 tunisian Dinar. That is about 760 Euro including installation but without the cost of the solar panel.

You will find nice videos on YouTube made by him if you search for  Soleil bleu le hard top and Soleil bleu annexe. This will give you some informations. When I met Riza last year on the Boatshow the solar arch with 600 Wp , complete with installation in Goecek TR was 6000 €.
I was thinking of adding an solararch, but decided to run the generator and keep the dinghy on the deck. I will add at the reling each side 150 wp solar panels .

Riza fromEmeck marine has taken the muserments fromthat Arch to do the one from my boat with sainless steel 316L the cost was around 3000 euros but today he is asking 4000
You can join this person at cagdas@... his office is in Goceck Turkey
