[Amel Yacht Owners] Re: SM Sea Chest Specifications


James Studdart
 

Hello,
I bet you're about to get inundated with rather dull photos of sea chests!
BUT just incase, here is one from a recent visit (we've very nearly just
bought a SM2k). It's just the whole thing I'm afraid, I don't have one of
only the lid.

I hope it helps and I feel for you!

Cheers,
James.

sea-chest (as most have noted). I feel very uncomfortable not having the
lid in place.

I have located a diver and I am trying to find a picture of the lid to
email to him so he knows what he's looking for/feeling for in the murky
water, yet having scanned every photo on this site and all, 2,400 pictures
I have taken of my boat and its systems, I can't find a single picture of
the sea-chest lid or even of the seachest/thru-hull. Boy, it just doesn't
get any photo respect.

Could someone take a pic of the sea-chest lid and one of the sea-chest so
that the diver will know what he is looking for and then my caretaker will
know where to put it. Please post here or just email the photos to me at
garysilver at mac dot com.

Thanks again for the replies, the information, and photos.

Hi James: 

Thanks for attempting the picture, however I don't see it posted in the photos section and if you attached it to you email, Yahoo deletes those, I think.  At any rate, I didn't receive it.  could you email it to me at garysilver at mac dot com  (Note, email addresses in the normal format with ampersand and dot are truncated by Yahoo, hence the full language text of my email address.

Thanks, I will anxiously await your email.  PS what boat were you looking at?

Good afternoon Gary,

I didn’t know seacock could have a slight leakage, so yes I totally understand your concern.

Anyway, I just added 3 pictures of the lid on:
http://nikimat.com/vetus_1320_raw_water_filter_strainer.html

I will also email them to you directly.

Andrew, I love the idea of having a hose attachment for fresh water.
On my ski boat (Correct Craft Ski Nautique), I did that (to rinse the engine with fresh water).
How do you control the water flow? Do you have like a bucket above the hose that you fill up, how long do you let it run, etc.
Or do you only rinse the other systems (anchor wash, air conditioning, toilets, etc.)

Hi Alexandre,

I connect the hose directly to the shore water.

I run the genset, engine, anchor wash, air conditioning and then the toilets.

I have a valve on the hose near the end so I can shut off the water between operations.

I can’t say how long I leave the water run, I just run as I feel is appropriate.

You will find that the water pressure from the dock causes the water to go past the toilet pumps and fill the bowls. In the last few years I have not seen a problem with this.

Good afternoon Gary,

I didn’t know seacock could have a slight leakage, so yes I totally understand your concern.

Anyway, I just added 3 pictures of the lid on:
http://nikimat.com/vetus_1320_raw_water_filter_strainer.html

I will also email them to you directly.

Andrew, I love the idea of having a hose attachment for fresh water.

How do you control the water flow? Do you have like a bucket above the hose that you fill up, how long do you let it run, etc.

Thanks Alexandre, Mark and Andrew for your replies.
 Each was very helpful.  As to why I am concerned? This is
such a critical system and a leak could have such dire
consequences, even with the sea-cock closed slight leakage
past the valve will eventually overflow the top of the
sea-chest (as most have noted).  I feel very uncomfortable
not having the lid in place.
I have located a diver and I am
trying to find a picture of the lid to email to him so he
knows what he's looking for/feeling for in the murky
water, yet having scanned every photo on this site and all,
2,400 pictures I have taken of my boat and its systems, I

Thanks for your reply Eric,

Definitely something I want to do as I believe this will tremendously increase the life of the engine, genset and other equipments.
I might be too cautious, but would too much pressure put too much stress on the hoses?
On my ski boat, I had a valve and could adjust the water flow (the reason was I wanted to increase temperature so that the thermostat open and the block is washed)…

My preliminary thoughts (to avoid too much water pressure from the dock) are:
spare strainer lid with water hose connector (likely Gardena) connected to a hose, itself connected to the bottom of a bucket (also with gardena connection).
From the dock, water hose with valve (to adjust the water flow) filling the bucket.
This way, I think this is a more “as needed” water flow.

Hi
Alexandre,I connect the hose
directly to the shore water.I run the genset,
engine, anchor wash, air conditioning and then the
toilets.I have a valve on the
hose near the end so I can shut off the water between
operations.I can’t say how long
I leave the water run, I just run as I feel is
appropriate.You will find that the
water pressure from the dock causes the water to go past the
toilet pumps and fill the bowls. In the last few years I
have not seen a problem with this.Fair

Subject: Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: SM
Sea Chest Specifications    Good afternoon Gary,

I didn’t know seacock could
have a slight leakage, so yes I totally understand your
concern.

Anyway, I just
added 3 pictures of the lid on:
http://nikimat.com/vetus_1320_raw_water_filter_strainer.html

I will also email them to you
directly.

Andrew, I love
the idea of having a hose attachment for fresh water.
On my ski boat (Correct Craft Ski Nautique), I
did that (to rinse the engine with fresh water).
How do you control the water flow? Do you have
like a bucket above the hose that you fill up, how long do
you let it run, etc.
Or do you only rinse
the other systems (anchor wash, air conditioning, toilets,
etc.)

Sincerely,
Alexandre

Thanks Alexandre, Mark and Andrew for your
replies.
 Each was very helpful.  As to
why I am concerned? This is
such a critical
system and a leak could have such dire
consequences, even with the sea-cock closed
slight leakage
past the valve will
eventually overflow the top of the
sea-chest
(as most have noted).  I feel very uncomfortable
not having the lid in place.
I
have located a diver and I am
trying to find
a picture of the lid to email to him so he
knows what he's looking for/feeling for in
the murky
water, yet having scanned every
photo on this site and all,
2,400 pictures I
have taken of my boat and its systems, I
can't find a single picture of the
sea-chest lid or even
of the
seachest/thru-hull.  Boy, it just doesn't get
any photo respect. 
Could
someone take a pic of the
sea-chest lid and
one of the sea-chest so that the diver
will
know what he is looking for and then my caretaker will
know where to put it.  Please post here or
just email the
photos to me at garysilver at
mac dot com.
Thanks again for the replies,
the
information, and photos. 
Sincerely, Gary Silver

Hi Alexandre,

I connect the hose directly to the shore water.

I run the genset, engine, anchor wash, air conditioning and then the toilets.

I have a valve on the hose near the end so I can shut off the water between operations.

I can’t say how long I leave the water run, I just run as I feel is appropriate.

You will find that the water pressure from the dock causes the water to go past the toilet pumps and fill the bowls. In the last few years I have not seen a problem with this.

Good afternoon Gary,

I didn’t know seacock could have a slight leakage, so yes I totally understand your concern.

Anyway, I just added 3 pictures of the lid on:
http://nikimat.com/vetus_1320_raw_water_filter_strainer.html

I will also email them to you directly.

Andrew, I love the idea of having a hose attachment for fresh water.
On my ski boat (Correct Craft Ski Nautique), I did that (to rinse the engine with fresh water).
How do you control the water flow? Do you have like a bucket above the hose that you fill up, how long do you let it run, etc.
Or do you only rinse the other systems (anchor wash, air conditioning, toilets, etc.)

Thanks Alexandre, Mark and Andrew for your replies.
 Each was very helpful.  As to why I am concerned? This is
such a critical system and a leak could have such dire
consequences, even with the sea-cock closed slight leakage
past the valve will eventually overflow the top of the
sea-chest (as most have noted).  I feel very uncomfortable
not having the lid in place.
I have located a diver and I am
trying to find a picture of the lid to email to him so he
knows what he's looking for/feeling for in the murky
water, yet having scanned every photo on this site and all,
2,400 pictures I have taken of my boat and its systems, I
can't find a single picture of the sea-chest lid or even
of the seachest/thru-hull.  Boy, it just doesn't get
any photo respect. 
Could someone take a pic of the
sea-chest lid and one of the sea-chest so that the diver
will know what he is looking for and then my caretaker will
know where to put it.  Please post here or just email the
photos to me at garysilver at mac dot com.
Thanks again for the replies, the
information, and photos.

Alexandre,

You would be surprised how much water the genset and engine use. I only slow down the flow of water with a valve at the end of the hose closest to the sea chest when I am flushing the toilets.

I have been doing this for a few years without any hose problems. I use a regular garden hose as the hose that comes with the boat does not allow enough water flow for the genset.

Thanks for your reply Eric,

Definitely something I want to do as I believe this will tremendously increase the life of the engine, genset and other equipments.
I might be too cautious, but would too much pressure put too much stress on the hoses?
On my ski boat, I had a valve and could adjust the water flow (the reason was I wanted to increase temperature so that the thermostat open and the block is washed)…

My preliminary thoughts (to avoid too much water pressure from the dock) are:
spare strainer lid with water hose connector (likely Gardena) connected to a hose, itself connected to the bottom of a bucket (also with gardena connection).
From the dock, water hose with valve (to adjust the water flow) filling the bucket.
This way, I think this is a more “as needed” water flow.

Dear Eric,

Ok glad to know!

By the hose that comes with the boat, do you mean the one at the foot of the mizzen mast?
If yes, then not surprised it doesn’t deliver enough water.

Sincerely, Alexandre

Alexandre,You would be surprised
how much water the genset and engine use. I only slow down
the flow of water with a valve at the end of the hose
closest to the sea chest when I am flushing the
toilets.I have been doing this
for a few years without any hose problems. I use a regular
garden hose as the hose that comes with the boat does not
allow enough water flow for the genset.Fair

Subject: RE: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: SM
Sea Chest Specifications    Thanks for your reply Eric,


Definitely something I
want to do as I believe this will tremendously increase the
life of the engine, genset and other equipments.
I might be too cautious, but would too much
pressure put too much stress on the hoses?
On my ski boat, I had a valve and could adjust
the water flow (the reason was I wanted to increase
temperature so that the thermostat open and the block is
washed)…

My preliminary
thoughts (to avoid too much water pressure from the dock)
are:
spare strainer lid with water hose
connector (likely Gardena) connected to a hose, itself
connected to the bottom of a bucket (also with gardena
connection).
From the dock, water hose with
valve (to adjust the water flow) filling the bucket.
This way, I think this is a more “as
needed” water flow.

Hi
Alexandre,I connect the
hose
directly to the shore water.I run the
genset,
engine, anchor wash, air
conditioning and then the
toilets.I have a
valve on the
hose near the end so I can shut
off the water between
operations.I can’t
say how long
I leave the water run, I just
run as I feel is
appropriate.You will find
that the
water pressure from the dock causes
the water to go past the
toilet pumps and
fill the bowls. In the last few years I
have
not seen a problem with this.Fair

Subject: Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: SM
Sea Chest Specifications    Good afternoon
Gary,

I didn’t know
seacock could
have a slight leakage, so yes
I totally understand your
concern.

Anyway, I just
added 3 pictures of the lid on:
http://nikimat.com/vetus_1320_raw_water_filter_strainer.html

I will also email them to
you
directly.

Andrew, I love
the idea of
having a hose attachment for fresh water.
On my ski boat (Correct Craft Ski Nautique),
I
did that (to rinse the engine with fresh
water).
How do you control the water flow?
Do you have
like a bucket above the hose
that you fill up, how long do
you let it
run, etc.
Or do you only rinse
the other systems (anchor wash, air
conditioning, toilets,
etc.)

Sincerely,
Alexandre

Thanks Alexandre, Mark and Andrew for your
replies.
 Each was very
helpful.  As to
why I am concerned? This
is
such a critical
system
and a leak could have such dire
consequences, even with the sea-cock closed
slight leakage
past the valve
will
eventually overflow the top of the
sea-chest
(as most have noted).
 I feel very uncomfortable
not having the
lid in place.
I
have located
a diver and I am
trying to find
a picture of the lid to email to him so he
knows what he's looking for/feeling for
in
the murky
water, yet
having scanned every
photo on this site and
all,
2,400 pictures I
have
taken of my boat and its systems, I
can't find a single picture of the
sea-chest lid or even
of the
seachest/thru-hull.  Boy, it just doesn't
get
any photo respect. 
Could
someone take a pic of
the
sea-chest lid and
one of
the sea-chest so that the diver
will
know what he is looking for and then my
caretaker will
know where to put it.
 Please post here or
just email the
photos to me at garysilver at
mac dot com.
Thanks again for
the replies,
the
information, and photos.

Hi Alexandre,

Yes that is the hose. The one on a reel.

Dear Eric,

Ok glad to know!

By the hose that comes with the boat, do you mean the one at the foot of the mizzen mast?
If yes, then not surprised it doesn’t deliver enough water.

Sincerely, Alexandre

Alexandre,You would be surprised
how much water the genset and engine use. I only slow down
the flow of water with a valve at the end of the hose
closest to the sea chest when I am flushing the
toilets.I have been doing this
for a few years without any hose problems. I use a regular
garden hose as the hose that comes with the boat does not
allow enough water flow for the genset.Fair

Subject: RE: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: SM
Sea Chest Specifications    Thanks for your reply Eric,


Definitely something I
want to do as I believe this will tremendously increase the
life of the engine, genset and other equipments.
I might be too cautious, but would too much
pressure put too much stress on the hoses?
On my ski boat, I had a valve and could adjust
the water flow (the reason was I wanted to increase
temperature so that the thermostat open and the block is
washed)…

My preliminary
thoughts (to avoid too much water pressure from the dock)
are:
spare strainer lid with water hose
connector (likely Gardena) connected to a hose, itself
connected to the bottom of a bucket (also with gardena
connection).
From the dock, water hose with
valve (to adjust the water flow) filling the bucket.
This way, I think this is a more “as
needed” water flow.

Hi
Alexandre,I connect the
hose
directly to the shore water.I run the
genset,
engine, anchor wash, air
conditioning and then the
toilets.I have a
valve on the
hose near the end so I can shut
off the water between
operations.I can’t
say how long
I leave the water run, I just
run as I feel is
appropriate.You will find
that the
water pressure from the dock causes
the water to go past the
toilet pumps and
fill the bowls. In the last few years I
have
not seen a problem with this.Fair

Subject: Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: SM
Sea Chest Specifications    Good afternoon
Gary,

I didn’t know
seacock could
have a slight leakage, so yes
I totally understand your
concern.

Anyway, I just
added 3 pictures of the lid on:
http://nikimat.com/vetus_1320_raw_water_filter_strainer.html

I will also email them to
you
directly.

Andrew, I love
the idea of
having a hose attachment for fresh water.
On my ski boat (Correct Craft Ski Nautique),
I
did that (to rinse the engine with fresh
water).
How do you control the water flow?
Do you have
like a bucket above the hose
that you fill up, how long do
you let it
run, etc.
Or do you only rinse
the other systems (anchor wash, air
conditioning, toilets,
etc.)

Sincerely,
Alexandre

Thanks Alexandre, Mark and Andrew for your
replies.
 Each was very
helpful.  As to
why I am concerned? This
is
such a critical
system
and a leak could have such dire
consequences, even with the sea-cock closed
slight leakage
past the valve
will
eventually overflow the top of the
sea-chest
(as most have noted).
 I feel very uncomfortable
not having the
lid in place.
I
have located
a diver and I am
trying to find
a picture of the lid to email to him so he
knows what he's looking for/feeling for
in
the murky
water, yet
having scanned every
photo on this site and
all,
2,400 pictures I
have
taken of my boat and its systems, I
can't find a single picture of the
sea-chest lid or even
of the
seachest/thru-hull.  Boy, it just doesn't
get
any photo respect. 
Could
someone take a pic of
the
sea-chest lid and
one of
the sea-chest so that the diver
will
know what he is looking for and then my
caretaker will
know where to put it.
 Please post here or
just email the
photos to me at garysilver at
mac dot com.
Thanks again for
the replies,
the
information, and photos.

Gary,
       For now why not have the caretaker knock in a wooden plug either on the outside of the hull or inside the sea chest and have him check the water level daily.
Best regards,

Good morning Gary,
Glad to help regarding the sea chest lid.

So, if full force water can not keep up with the genset nor engine, aren’t they going to overheat and do more bad than good?

Thanks to all who helped with your info, pictures,
specifications and comforting words relative to my recent
sea-chest lid problem. 
The discussion has evolved a bit but
here are my observations:
When flushing my systems with fresh
water I have always used dock or yard water directed at full
force into the open sea-chest.  In my current slip I have
unbelievable water pressure.  With one exception, I have
never been able to keep up with the demand of the Calpeda or
March AC pumps or the Onan or 75 hp Yanmar engines.  No
problem keeping up with the demand of the head pumps and I
long ago did away with the sea water anchor wash down pump
and changed to a fresh water  anchor wash (Joel's
friend, Ray Eaton, now deceased, installed that for me in
Ft. Lauderdale).
The
exception I noted above, was when I once found I was able to
keep up with the Yanmar throughput.  I next checked the
Yanmar impeller and found I was missing three vanes.  So
being able to evaluate how much water is being consumed from
the sea-chest is a diagnostic aid about the health of your
impellers for the engines and other sea water consuming
accessories. 
Thanks
again all, 
Gary

Hi Alexandre:

Yes I believe that is true about the engine possibly overheating if it ran very long at all but usually it isn't running that long.  What I do is fill the sea-chest to top with fresh water then have my wife start the given engine and immediately turn on the full force of the water.  Usually within about 15 seconds the water level will fall to the level of the outlet of the sea chest to the engines and we then shut down the engine.  I repeat this three or four times for each engine.  A bit of wear and tear on the starting of the engine but I don't dare allow it to run without a full stream of water filling the engine sea water pump.  I am guessing that as long as some water is traversing the engine impellers they are lubricated and ok but I am not sure so I have taken to the run/shut down routine.

I can tell you that if the water level falls too low in the sea-chest while flushing the Calpeda pump it becomes very noisy and starts to squeal.  Therefore I do the same there with starting and stopping the AC a few times as soon as the flush water can't keep up.

A follow-up note on my sea-chest issue.  I just
heard from the diver who found my lid without difficulty and
when he installed it on the sea-chest he reports that there
was no evidence of water coming out of the sea-chest, so it
looks like my sea-cock did not leak.  Yahoo!! (I mean the
exclamation type not the web site name.
Thanks for everyone's
help.
