Gary,

  Thanks for the information.  I am curious about what percentage of the bolts you were able to extract from the embedded bar stock?  Also what technique for removal of the fasteners seemed to work the best for you?

   Best of luck with the rest of your hurricane repairs.

Hi Bill


I echo what Joel and others have said but with a few caveats.  I just had about 10 of my stanchions off for repairs following hurricane damage.  Most are attached with the threaded-into-embedded-bar stock method but those in the immediate vicinity of the aft "garage" lazarette had washers and nuts on the back side of the vertical face of the toe-rail and the top horizontal face of the toe-rail.   This included the three most aft stanchions on the starboard stern area.  I didn't have damage on the port side in that area and so I can't speak to that (plus the propane locker is in that area so you'll have to  inspect in that area for nuts if that is where your damage is).  

I had always assumed that the stanchion that has the outboard rail board on it was welded at the top rail and the block was fabricate in-situ but not so.  That stanchion is about 1.5 inches sh ort of going to the top rail and inserts in a hole that is about 75% of the depth of the the wooden block.

Hi Bill. The stanchions fasteners are threaded into a mild steel  flat  bar  stock that is laminated into the fiberglass on the inside of the bulwark. The receiver bar stock has been properly tapped and threaded to secure the fasteners. When you refasten it, be sure not to spare the Ultra Tef-Gel anti-seize. You may need an impact screwdriver to get the fasteners loose if they have not been removed and new anti-seize installed in the last 10 years or so.

I have a 1995 Super Maramu and I need to remove one of the stanchions near the back of the boat. The stanchion has a bracket welded to the bottom which attaches to the deck by a horizontal and a vertical bolt.  I cannot reach underside of the bolts to determine if there is a nut or they are screwed into some kind of heli-coil.  If it's a heli-coil I can theoretically remove the bolts and then reinstall them assuming the heli-coil is still in place.  Does anyone know how these bolts are attached and/or has anyone removed them to remove a stanchion.  I need to remove it to weld a crack in the base.

Whilst it was wild and sometimes white out conditions, never did we feel unsafe, and with mostly just a very small amount of all 3 sails out, the boat stayed in control at all times, and mainly under 7kts speed without any need for a drougue.

Hope we have no more 50+ kts on the balance of our Indian Ocean crossing, but it sure is nice to know and experience the amazing capability of these Amels when one is thousands of miles from anywhere.

First of all , after long storage without usine the calpeda d’eau water puma ,it is mentionned that you mustang use à screw driver and move the axe on the bottom side of the poser motor . In fact ,the turning gasket is dry and m’est be free to let the motor run .

Wise decision Pat.

For our Caribbean cruising in 2019, and for our Pacific crossing afterwards, we cannot see ourselves forking out the extra cash for currents as it is far less important, and more benign so probably never a life or death decision.

I forgot to mention earlier that wave / swell heights and directiins right across the Indian Ocean so far have been absolutely spot on for P. Wind. When they said 3-4 meters that was precisely what we were in, and where it predicted 5-6m we got exactly that. Really impressive and we re-run our weather forecasts normally 2 to 3 times per 24hrs when on an ocean crossing. Why not ...it is free on the unlimited package and .... something intetesting to do out there when alone.... and means we can keep putting the boat is the best currents which were all amazingly accurate.

Wr have HF and oactor modem but are now real advocates of the IridiumGo and PW.

Hi Pat

Yes, we use P.Wind professional package with currents etc via an Iridium Go unlimited package. Bit pricey but well worth the money for our Indian Ocean crossing (and Sth Atlantic next too) as currents have been awesome.

Winds are good but were over estimated for most of our north Indian Ocean crossing (Thail -Maldives) and then under estimated by 5-10 kts for our Sth Indian Ocean crossing so far which everyone warned us about.

Currents have been exceptional and will be even more important soon as we intend to go back up around tge top of Madagascar after Mauritius and Reunion then down the notorious Mozambique channel with all its currents often hard to find.

PW gives 4 different weathet models and we always average tgem out and look for where they agree. With all this info you really do have a fair amount of control which we like.

I should also add we are also using a well known local Sth African weather routing expert ( Des Carlson) so tend to take all that info but always make our own decisions in the end and hence occasionally get it wrong such as this trip whete PW route would have been more direct and missed the worst of the weather we hit.... but that is life. You take a decision... win some...lose some etc.

Hi,
Your message says that the stanchion base plate mounting screws attach to an embedded back plate.  I need to remove one of my stanchions to weld a crack.  Can you confirm that I can unscrew the countersunk bolts and then be able to screw them back in again.  Access to the underside is virtually impossible.  I'm writing to you specifically because I figured you had removed the stanchion and know the answer.  Thanks for any help.

Usually the Calpeda B-CM20E pump can be rebuilt
you can google specs: https://www.colglo.co.uk/product.php?product=CALPB-CM20
I believe it is a high quality pump that should be rebuilt.
I purchased the kit (M3335H) from Coastal Climate Control (actually have some left).

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Climma Compact 9EH Troubleshooting tips?

Hi Duane. I wish I could give you a step by step guide. My solution is embarrassingly simple. I called coastal climate. They handed me over to the British guy. He asked if I was getting a click on the thermostat. I said no. He said turn the slot screw on the back slowly while testing for the click. No click then thermostat is no good. $35 later and easy install it works now. 
Hope your fix is easy and best wishes to Peg.

Chuck,

How did you come to the conclusion that it was the thermostat? I would love to hear how to diagnose the problem.

Hi Duane:  

I had a similar symptom on one of my units.  I tested and checked, as you have done, yet the compressor would not start.  I replaced the thermostat at the suggestion of the folks in Anapolis and the compressor started and ran normally.  It was way cheaper than replacing the compressor.  In my case it was just parts swapping and not actual troubleshooting so I can't comment on how to troubleshoot the thermostat without some research.  Perhaps you could swap a known good thermostat from one of the other units.

Good luck and keep us up to date with what you find.
