View the latest post Fuel Vent 326 Aft Plugged??

Pulled up to the gas dock after a weekend on the water and port engine took 100 litres and Starboard wouldn't take a drop as it only burped the gas back out. After some reading I think it may be the vent is plugged, but after checking quickly this am I assume the vent is out the back of the boat near the water line but if thats the case I'm not sure what could be the cause? Anyone else have this happen?

View the latest post Carver 366 lift up Transom step holder

I purchased a 2003 Carver 366 in May. The bracket/Pole that holds up the transom step (to access shore cord & water hookup) is missing. I am not sure what it is suppose to have. Could be a fold out pole support or maybe a shock. Can anyone provide details. Thanks Mike

View the latest post 3207 Ignition Problems

Hey everyone,

I have 2 issues going on, and hoped the answer might be with one of you! 1985 3207, twin Crusader 270s (350 v8)

I'm having an electrical problem on my port engine, and it won't start the engine was running great Saturday, then all of a sudden died on me and won't restart. I can disconnect the fuel line and crank the engine and gas will pump, I can spray starting fluid and dump gas down the carb and get nothing which is was points me to an electric issue.

Questions are
1) I'm not sure on the electronic ignition conversion the previous own did. How do these conversion kits work? I understand points and how to work on them and all that... just not sure how the conversion kits work. Are all the control modules the same? I'm going to get new everything and start from scratch... do I need to know the module and kit that's in there now, or can I get any kit and install?
2) Apparently the ignition switch at the lower helm is dead too, and I forgot to look at the switch before leaving the lake to see how many contacts are on the back. Anyone know how may contacts are on the back of an ignition switch on a 3207?

View the latest post New 1997 405 Aft Cabin

Hello All!

We will be picking up our new 1997 405 Aft Cabin next Monday in Newport News, VA and bringing her to her new home in Edgewater, New Jersey (Northern NJ, NYC, GW Bridge Area). This is our first Carver (we have owned Bayliners, Silvertons and our current boat a 1988 Mainship 36C). We have been live aboards since 2012 (Hurricane Sandy destroyed our town, and it was a good excuse to move aboard! Lol!). This is our first Carver, it has some more complicated systems, like a VAC U Flush, but we are up for the challenge! Our new boat has spent it’s entire life in freshwater and only has 202 hours on the engines and 221 hours on the generator. The boat is a “tweenie”. The hull is a 1997, but it was built in 1998. I am a third generation boater, but have limited knowledge when it comes to the engines. Any help or advice anyone can give me would be appreciated! The current name of the boat is: “About Time” but we plan to change it to “Island Breeze”. Fair Seas to all! Geoff.

View the latest post Buying an Out of State Boat

Does anyone have experience buying an out of state boat? I'm thinking I'll need to schedule a survey/haul out remotely as well as a mechanical (engine) survey. The listing broker is going to be motivated to help facilitate these items, so I'm not too worried them.

The next hurdle will be getting it shipped, which means getting it to a yard where they can haul it out, have the radar arch removed, and have the boat packaged for shipment and loaded on a truck. I'm a little more worried about these steps, but I suspect the listing broker would be willing to move the boat to the yard for me. One broker I talked to said having it wrapped is a waste of money - he recommended just taping around the windows/doors. Does anyone have recommendations for a shipping company or advice about the whole shipping/packaging process?
