[Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Water coming through below rudder quadrant

As my French friends are often sensitive about such things, our dear lady at Amel Apres Vende is called Maud not Maude and is pronounced something close to 
‘Mode ‘. No offense to my pal Wild Willy Kinney.

Rick,

I can't say I have any magic tricks for Amel communications.  We write to Maude Touillet at sav@...  We try to be polite, and patient, understanding that parts for boats produced two decades ago are not exactly a huge money maker for the yard, and just about everything they do will have a higher priority!

We have initiated contact with them probably a half dozen times, and only had two where some kind of follow up was needed, and once was just a bit of a miscommunication.  In general, Maude has been very responsive, and helpful.

I suspect that getting specialized bits and pieces for a Maramu might be getting a bit more difficult.

Our cruising plans are the head up to Nova Scotia this summer.  For all that cruising plans are worth!

Hi Bill
I frequently see in your posts that you contact Amel for parts
I don’t seem to have much luck contacting them from Nova Scotia
Any advice?
We have a Maramu and experienced the same rudder post leaking.
I’d like to order spares from them.
BTW this is an awesome forum.
Always helpful
Cheers
Rick

I am blaming my American autocorrect software.  

That's my story and I am sticking to it!

Hey Guys
Thanks.
I think the email got chopped off by the site algorithms. Should I assume it's amel.fr or something like that.
Bill,
If you're up this way and we can help you out or just share a toddy let us know. 
We're planning on heading to Cape Breton's Bras'Dor Lakes in mid August then back down to Mahone Bay in late August. 
You can reach me any time at reswinemar at gmail dot com. (Let me know if that fools the algorithms;-)
Cheers
Rick

Rick,

We're interested in "maybe" going as far north as Nova Scotia, is there a cruising guide you would recommend in particular?

Thanks,
