Any suggestions on cleaning the exterior outside carpet? i would like to start using it but when I purchased the boat it was dirty and looks worn. I was also thinking of dying it and would like to hear from anyone that did that as well.

View the latest post Jabsco Spotlight LED Conversion

It's winter cold and the snow has not come yet and I'm bored so boat projects come to mind. I want to convert the Jabsco spotlight to the LED variety however the boat is inaccessible and wearing shrink.

My project is simply to replace the sealed beam housing with an aftermarket LED one however I do not know if the beam used is actually a standard size 4 x 6. I know Jabsco sells replacement sealed beams however there is no mention of physical size. Want to use something like this.

Model is a Jabsco 146SL like this. http://www.xylemflowcontrol.com/marine- ... hlight.htm

View the latest post Fresh Water System Pump

I would like to replace my fresh water's holding tank pump with a new pump. My current pump works fine, but it is making some noise and I would like to replace it. I looked and there are millions of pumps out there. What is the best pump to get?

I want something super quiet and powerful.

View the latest post New Carver owner

Howdy all!!! Glad to find this site as I am a new Carver owner. Been a boater all of my life.
My parents recently passed away, 6 months apart.
They left us an '87 Carver Mariner. Need manual that fits that boat as I cannot find theirs as of yet.
Have questions on removing contents of septic tank. Yes, there is stuff in there. Tried the other day and couldn't get it to work. Probably missing one small detail. Familiar with motor home systems, can;t be much different. Can someone help please?? Tried to download manual thru this site but it wants me to download software I am not familiar with by name and don't trust strange software. Thank you,

View the latest post Attachment(s) New owner 1985 Carver 3607

Hello all,

I purchased my 3607 about 3 months ago. This is my first purchase of a cruiser. I am doing the live aboard thing and I am loving it. However, the weather is turning and keeping the cabin heated is more of an issue than I anticipated. The previous owner said that the space heater they used was sufficient, but I am not finding that to be the case. I tried using additional space heaters, but that keeps tripping the breakers. Anyone have a suggestion. Thanks, in advance.

View the latest post 87 carver 270 santego

I recently bought my first carver a 270 santego flybridge.
I bought it at the end of the season,after a watertest I had to winterize and store it.
The guy I bought it from bought it on a spur of the moment didnt know nothing about it and used it twice.
The holding tank for the toilet waste is under the toilet?
I was told there is another holding tank..to transfer for pumpout?.
Also for my water onboard is there a switch like the one in my bayliner somewhere I could not find it?.
Thank you for any info or where to find info on my boat.
