Antal Block and Dyneema loops

Wolfgang Weber
 

Good morning ,
I received the dyneema loops by Amel and ask now the group for any advice or recommendations for the way to Change the loops at the Antal Block. First try after getting out the screw was without effect to get out the roll.Will I loose the balls of the bearings 
Thank you very much Wolfgang Weber SY Elise Amel 54 #162 on Delaware River to Cape May ( any recommendations for Marina or anchorage?)

Hi Wolfgang;

We replaced the loops by removing the screw you mentioned and took the roller out. You will not lose any ball bearings. It did take some work to get the roller out due to salt and dust. Stay at it and it will come out.

Respectfully;

Wolfgang,We just made that passage , I don't think there is enough water to get into the Cape May harbor and the Bay inlet is restricted by a fixed bridge. In settled weather you can anchor just about anywhere along the coast in less than 20 ft. of water. BTW if heading north you can round the Cape very close to shore ,just need to pick your way around a couple of shoals and  that saves a few miles going all the way out and around the shoal area. I don't think there is many or any inlets on the Jersey coast to go into given our draft.
Good Luck ,
Pat

We’ve been into Cape May, twice.
Once, in the anchorage, and once fueling at Utah’s Marina.
It is shallow, but manageable.
Radio the marina for directions in deep water. When fueling, we diverted course, in, fueled, and out, in under two hours....

Hi Koko, 
Good to know, I will try after using WD40.
Thank you very much Wolfgang Weber SY Elise Amel 54#162

WD-40 is good for starting a diesel but for lubrication it is poor as it absorbs water. Inox does the same job and repels water.

To loosen up rusted in place things PB Blaster is far superior.

Here is a quote from their website.

Fair Winds

Eric

Kimberlite Amel Super Maramu #376

 Blaster PB Penetrating Catalyst, which quickly breaks loose the surface tension of frozen parts and protects against further rust and corrosion
