Has anyone with a carver 506 installed led lights in the risers of the aft boarding steps. I did this in my last boat but cannot figure out how to get to back side of steps to install wiring. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello everyone! I'm new here and excited to tackle some projects this winter. Finally got my engine (mercruiser 454) all set up and Working (mostly) well. Pretty nice running machine for the most part.

Does anyone have experience with replacing deck vinyl?Looks like the best bet is to take off the entire cabin top. Love to hear about people's experiences w that. Not sure I want to open that can of worms without plenty of time and input.

View the latest post Maxwell RC800 windlass

I searched the site for previous posts on this subject but couldn't find an answer for this problem. My windlass is generally in good working order although I seem to have a problem that I gather is somewhat common to this unit. The pressure arm seems to break frequently - at least more than I'd like. I have replaced it about once per year. Last time I replaced it and the stripper. I have a new rode and chain this year also. When the rode/chain splice section passes through it tends to bind. I go slowly to avoid damage but it is difficult. Any suggestions on how to avoid this or repairs that anyone knows to improve on this would be appreciated.

View the latest post Fuel Tank Removal

I have a 1984 Carver 2687 Monterey that I have been restoring. Does anyone know if it's possible to remove the fuel tank thru the deck hatch without cutting into the deck? It doesn't leak as far as I know, but it is 33 years old aluminum tank and I really don't want to take the chance of it starting to leak after I get my project finished.

View the latest post New Carver Owner!

Just took possession of a '94 370 Aft Cabin last week! LOVE IT! I know this is probably already on the forums...looking for best econ cruise numbers. Has anyone converted to NMEA 2000 with the Actisense NGW-1? Has anyone cleaned up their instrument panel- Maretron Display? Need a recommendation on chartplotters/radar units...
Looking forward to getting some great operating tips from you guys!

View the latest post Attachment(s) New to Forum, Carver...and boating in general.

I've been stalking your forum while looking for a boat. I finally found a pretty clean 1989 Carver 3227 Convertible that I thought was a good deal and it suited the intended purposes for me and my family (mostly cruising the Santa Rosa Sound around Pensacola Beach and a little fishing and an overnighter or two). And so I bought it. Still working the on logistics of shipping from Wisconsin to Florida but hopefully she will be here in the next couple of weeks and I can start cleaning her up and taking care of the things that need to be taken care of. I have had ski boats and party barges, but this is my first foray into a larger boat with twin inboards that will sit year-round in a slip. So, in spite of EVERY friend I have telling me NOT to buy a boat, I'm all in...and it's all good. Thanks in advance for your help and patience. I will try to research it before I post it, but I know I will have 10,000 questions.
