View the latest post Inverter Inline Fuse?

Purchased an Eliminator inverter 2000 watts that I plan on mounting in a kitchen cabinet as it is not ignition protected. Question is the inline fuse provided with the inverter ok to mount close to batteries in the engine compartment or is a marine fuse necessary? Any guidance would be appreciated.

View the latest post Carver 366 With Diesel


New to this board. I currently have a 1993 Baja 290 and geetuing to a point in our life where we need more comfirt than spped so we are in the process of upgrading our current boat and we like the 2003 to 2007 Carver 366. I love the look o fthe boat and the setuo inside. Lots of room and love the sepereate state rooms.

I am leaning towards getting the diesels only to reduce running costs. I was wondering if anyone here has this boat with diesel engines and how the boat performs with these engines? I was able to find some info with the 7,4s gas but nothing on teh diesels. Looking for fuel consumption and cruising speed and anything to look for when it comes to diesel engines. I never owned a boat with a diesel engine before.

View the latest post How do you keep Ice for long trip

I am looking at a Carver 44 Sojourn that does not have an ice maker.
We plan on staying out (away from the dock) for several days at a time and wandering what others do for long term storage / making ice. I use a fair amount over a 24 hour period on the boat.
Boat has the larger fridge/freezer in the galley and another fridge upstairs. However no ice maker.
Getting a large yeti type cooler and loading up with a bunch of ice is one option but would prefer an ice maker on board.

Is there somewhere else to mount an ice maker or is it worth the trouble and expense?
Large Yeti would be cheaper but buying a bunch of ice gets to be a pain every time we go out.

View the latest post New member from Wi.

Good morning, new member, 1st post. A few years into retirement and along w/my son, looking for a boat to share. My other son got into boating a couple of years ago and loves it, this will be a first for me. Going this Saturday to look at a Carver 3207 aft cabin. Family has owned it for the past 4 years, kids in sports is causing them to rethink boating and getting an RV for a few years till the kids get older. Got a copy of the 45 page survey that was done in August for the insurance company. It is an '82 and the survey did not suggest any major issues, I am a tinkerer... Boat comes w/a slip for the 2021 season, I checked out the marina and our slip a couple of days ago... We will see what Saturday brings. Looking forward to the forum and all the knowledge that it contains. :usa:

View the latest post Assembly Instructions

Not sure this has been posted here before, but I just ran across this page on Carver's website. Could be helpful for some folks. Shows things like how the arches and other appurtenances are installed.

View the latest post New owner of 2000 450 Voyager Pilot House

I just bought a 2000 Carver 450 Voyager Pilot House and brought it home up the ICW in Florida. Now home, it's time to replace out-of-date, worn-out, and non-working items (not that a Harman-Kardon laser disk isn't a great option).
I'm looking for general advice:
Best place to buy general boating items
Best place to buy Carver specific items
Best place/way to buy/get replacement mattresses (at least one of my mattresses looks like a Civil War bandage)
Anything you would recommend
After a two-day cruise home on the ICW all I'm really sure of is that 560 gallons of diesel is expensive and I hate sailboats (Ok, maybe hate is a strong word but between "Stay out of my wind" and "I can't handle a wake", they sure slow you down in the channel.)

If you have something to share I'd like to learn. Thanks

My mechanism for opening the cabin door need help, I am trying to find the mfg of the door lock and hatch release, If you dont have a Carver that opens the door and hatch at the same time you likely dont understand the problem.

View the latest post Windlass installation

I'm considering installing an electric windlass on the "Damn Boat", a 1983 3607AC. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I should run away from, what is good, and approximately what it is going to cost me?

Also, any decent marine salvage yards around the mid-south?
