[Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Maramu pole setup
Thanks so much for this detailed and helpful response Alan. Very much appreciated indeed.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Sadly I don’t have the manuals for the Maramu.
The previous owner of SeaLove had managed to brake one of the whisker pole harken bell/toggles but said he only ever needed the one pole for his sailing style but as I’m planning to fly twin headsails downwind I have replaced the broken bits and now just trying to figure it all out.
So it looks like I need to go rope shopping!
The Maramu deck/ cabin line attachment points differ from the SM so I’d be really interested to also hear from anyone who has experience of the Maramu line attachments if they have the time
The SM double headsail setup with the triple foil luff groove sounds brilliant. I’m surprised other boat makers have not copied this
All the best

I’m still somewhat puzzled by the pole setup on my older Maramu
The set up is definitely a little different I think to the SM so if anyone has experience it would be great to check in on the right track.
At the bow:
I assume I attach a block to the most fwd loop on the stantion base as per far left of photo. Between the clear and the fair lead shown. This block will take the fore guy. I take this back to a suitable clear in the foredeck perhaps.
Mid ships :
Down haul- I assume I put a block on the lifting eye/chainplate and take the line to a cleat on the mast
I think I must bring the aftguy in right behind the swim ladder which runs aft from the stantion attachment shown.
So I assume I put a block on the rear most stantion attachment point shown in last photo and then bring the aft guy back to a cockpit cleat.
Many thanks in advance for any tips or corrections !
All the very best
