Tilo,  Bill and the others responsible for the making of the Battle Born presentation,

   Very well done, thank to and a big thanks everyone involved!  This video should answer many of the questions that we have about batteries and I would highly suggest having a look.

Updated Event: Zoom meeting - QSails owner/manager will present sails for Amels - Saturday, 12 September 2020 #cal-invite

main@AmelYachtOwners.groups.io Calendar <main@...>
 

Zoom meeting - QSails owner/manager will present sails for Amels

When:
Saturday, 12 September 2020

An RSVP is requested. Click here to RSVP

Description:

Time will be 2000 UTC.

Over 60 Amel owners have purchased sails from QSails, Izmir, Turkey. QSails has shipped these sails worldwide. Emrah Oge, owner, manager, and avid sailor will present how sails are made and some key points to be aware of in the selection of sails for your Amel. 

QSails offers very fast shipments of sails for many Amel models. In fact, many Amel sails are actually shipped from pre-made stock at QSails.

To ensure that you get the best quality and the best price, QSails and Amel owners have designed 3 simple choices for you of Good, Better, and Best:

GOOD - CrossCut AP Dacron is a quote for budget-minded Super Maramu owners who would like a Dacron polyester cross-cut sail similar to what Doyle Sails provides.
BETTER - TriRadial Cut Pro Radial Dimension/Polyant Dacron is a quote for those owners wanting a very high-quality Dacron Polyester fiber sailcloth from the German company Dimension-Polyant. It is cut and assembled in a TriRadial configuration. This is a slightly higher quality sail with the same TriRadial construction that your Super Maramu had when new.
BEST
- HydraNet TriRadial Cut is a quote for TriRadial Cut HydraNet from the German company Dimension-Polyant. I consider Dimension-Polyant the best sailcloth manufacturer in the world, and HydraNet the best sailcloth...it will not stretch.

 

 


Re: Bow-thruster repair at anchor

Brent Cameron
 

I’ve read about that repair dozens of times but it was never very clear to me what they were talking about without having it all apart in front of me. Noe seeing your video makes it all very clear. Very well done. The two parts that you were wondering what the English names were are the Shear Pin and the Shaft Key (counterintuitive I know) but it’s still very clear what you meant. Your video will help a lot of new owners so thank you for taking the time to put it together.

Re: Cook top dimensions

 

I suggest that you look at probably the best stoves available at GN Espace https://www.gn-espace.com/ Be sure to look at their storage and cooking containers which are simply genius.

They just introduced the OceanChef 3 Induction Stove, which is a 53.5 cm wide (gimbal tip to gimbal tip) - 3 zone induction cooktop/electric oven and grill for monohulls. Both of their OceanChef 3 and 4 burner LPG cookers and the new OceanChef 3 Induction/electric cooker, are all direct replacements for the ENO/Force 10 stoves.

I believe that there is not a better product for Amels than all of the products made by this company. If this interests you, I have negotiated a discount for my clients. For more information on the discount write to me at Bill@...

Hello,

Why don' t you install electric heating elements in the existing oven? 

You may even install them additional beside the gas heaters. So you can use both.

Many thanks Elja, 590 should work perfectly.
I am currently locked down away from my boat.
Yes, I am also converting my oven to electric.
My idea is to insert 2 small ovens into the current oven space inside the existing stainless steel gimballed frame. If you like I can send you a photo in the next day or two of how the two ovens look together along with dimensions. Each oven draws a maximum of 2400W.

I'll wait for the next long stop before removing it again and change oil for grease… That way I will be able to see how long the oil will leak and prepare myself for the exercise ;-)

Thank you again and take care…
