View the latest post Attachment(s) Port Engine Overheating
Bought my first boat!!! Very excited and want to learn to do my own repairs, if at all possible. Have a 1997 350 Mariner with a 2 Crusader 350 XL engines. Starboard engine temp is perfect and port engine overheats when over 2200. Had a mechanic come in fill coolant check hoses and replaced both engine's impellers thinking that would do the trick. It's a little better but still overheats and white smoke emits from port engine. I'm thinking of trying Sea Flush with Barnacle buster or Salt Away on my own as a next troubleshooting step and last resort replacing the riser(s). Those are big bucks come to find out. I've been watching you tube videos on this process. Anyone have a link or tips for flushing all the crap that may be in the engine making it overheat? Do I need to remove the impellers when doing this chemical flush? Before I purchased the boat it had sat for a long while...

My name is Robbert Uittenbosch and I live in the Netherlands and just bought a 1993 Carver 390 CPMY. Before this Carver I owned 2 each Sport Cruisers and enjoyed the riding, but now it's time to go a bit slower and more comfort.From day one I always wanted a fly bridge and with the Carver 390 my wish came through., see you all on the forum.

Has anyone tackled the removal and replacement of the rear Aux. Fuel tank on the Carver 355/356 AC/MY. I know Viper says cut the swim platform open and do the R&R that way, was wondering if anyone tackled getting out thru the aft cabin head panel? Elliott, had posted some pictures from back in there and I wondered if Elliott thought it would be possible to tackle the R&R of the Aux. tank from there? My neighbor's 2001 356 aux tank let go this winter and our 1998 355 is showing the signs ours is about to let go too. Gas smell in aft cabin now and then, same symptoms as my neighbor was experiencing. The $5K estimates noted in a past forum makes my wallet sick! Also if someone has had this happen did Carver Yachts step up to the plate with any help with the cost or supplying a new tank? Is there a non metal replacement tank?

I have a 1997 Carver 355. I use a tailgater to receive satellite signal and place on roof off of flybridge. My problem is I have been attempting to run cable into the arch down to below deck and up to entertainment center to Tv. I also plan on installing windlass this spring and need to route cable from windlass to flybridge helm...any secret to hiding these cables? Thanks for the help!

I am looking at this model to use on Lake Ontario. Can anyone share what hull construction standards were for this model in 1995? Where was balsa used? Hull thickness? Deadrise? Any history of delamination? Hull flexing? Core saturation? Thanks.

I would like to add a fish finder to my boat. I have a depth finder, but would like to know what the bottom looks like and the water temp. I have an ipad running Navionic's charts. Both the wi-fish and sonar phone will overlay their information on the charts. My question is, which one has a better representation of the bottom?

Typically, what pressure range do crank driven raw water pumps operate in, idle up to wide open throttle? I've been a little under the weather lately and have not worked on my project. So, it gives time to think about some improvements and search the web. I want to add a pressure gauge to my dash so I can keep tabs on what the pump is doing.
