View the latest post Carver Mariner 350 City Water Hookup - Winter


Question. What is the best way to winterize the City Water hookup section of hose? For the rest of the water system, the intake on the water pump was removed and antifreeze was pumped throughout the system.

The City Water section has a back flow valve so you can't pump your stored water out the fitting. It also has a pressure reducer in it.

Thoughts?

View the latest post Want to replace microwave with electric convection oven


My 1992 Carver 33 aft cabin came with electric burners and a microwave oven underneath. I rarely (if ever) use a microwave, and would much rather have a convection oven in its place. Any suggestions?

View the latest post Winterization problems


The other week I was winterizing my 355. I have a seaflush kit, a bit pricey for a few pieces of plastic but it does work well and save time.
Anyhow, blow out water and add antifreeze to both a/c systems, check. Generator, check. Port engine check. So far about an hour and a half max from pulling up to the boat. Starboard engine, not check. It wont pull the antifreeze. Ok, I knew I had an impeller going bad, as it would run a bit hotter than port at over 3k rpm. yes, I keep a spare, should be a 90 minute job correct?. Gather the pump replacement kit, tools etc. Looking at the very small space to slip in front of the starboard engine? Lay down extra drop clothes etc. so I don't touch the carpet, looking at the small access to the front of the engine. All ready to climb in, again, looking at the very narrow access to the front of the engine. Looks like plenty of room when I get in there. Double check I have everything within reach due to the VERY tight access. Take a break, ok, I'm ready. No, I cannot slide in the very narrow space!! I pull the part of me that was semi stuck back out, with a few scratches and scrapes, and reevaluate the situation. Disconnect and move genny? No. find someone smaller, maybe, but I'm not huge, 5'10 190 I would need a skinny kid, or remove the heat exchanger. So yes, off comes the exchanger.
So my three hour winterization job turns into eight hours. I guess its a good thing, because I was planning to replace the impeller in the spring, and may have tried to squeak another season after I realized how tough of a job it was on the starboard engine. The impeller was BAD, it only had two half fins left! And don't forget to back flush. I believe the rest of the impeller was stuck in the trans cooler.
The port engine is no problem, plenty of space.

The main reason I share this is, if you have a 355 and you think you can quickly swap the starboard impeller if it fails underway, think again!!!

View the latest post Inflatable boat


Hi guys, I am looking at getting a small dinghy (8-10ft) inflatable floor type. Last year on most every trip we towed our 17’ glastron which worked great but getting into different marinas is a challenge when towing it, so we are looking for something to just throw on the platform for trips and anchoring. Any suggestions? What does everyone have for a tender? My budget is around $1000 so nothing to crazy. I plan on putting a 4 hp mercury on it. Thanks!

View the latest post 2000 326 Aft Extended Swim Platform


Greetings......I am a new member and owner of a 2000 326 Aft....I was wondering if anyone has added an extended swim platform to their 326 Aft? I added one to my 245 Bayliner previously from swim platforms.com and it was an awesome change....I have reached out to them and they have not manufactured one previously for a 326 so possibly I will have to look elsewhere if anyone else has had success.

If so could you share some pics and your source?

Cheers!

Hello Owners:
We just purchased our 1993 Voyager Sedan and are excited to begin cruising Georgian Bay in 2018 from our home base at Honey Harbour, Ontario.
Right now "Wishbone" is on the hard stand and waiting to be shrink wrapped.
Looking forward to meeting fellow owners next summer on "The Bay".
