View the latest post CARRVER 466 PARTS


Hello,
I was wondering if anyone has fiberglass swim platform parts from a salvage Carver 466 Motor Yacht. The factory no longer offers the platform and has destroyed the molds.
The swim platforms lower half is separated into three sections, A-Port B-Center C-Starboard. I am looking for the Port lower section. This section seams under the stainless trim on the swim platform rubrail and is held to the center section with screws and 5200. My section was damaged and lost at sea. Steve 973-261-0947

View the latest post Water lines


I have a 1986 carver 3607 aft cabin that we just bought was trying to figure out why neither toilet when I turned the pump on there was no water going into the toilets so I removed the cover on the pump where the impeller is supposed to be and there was no impeller in the casing on either toilet somebody had removed them and there were no water lines hooked to where the impeller is it was hooked directly to the top of the back side of the toilet the toilet in the rear bedroom has 2 lines coming out of the floor 1 is plugged off and the other one is hooked up and the toilet in the front of the yacht has only 1 line coming out of the wall so I started to trace lines and seen they went into the fresh water side and they put a solenoid and it controls it by a switch right beside where you turn the motor on for the toilet to flush I checked with the marina and they said it should draw from the raw water I would like to make it back to run off raw water as it should instead of using all the fresh water just for the toilets does anybody know where I could get a diagram that shows where the lines for the toilets are supposed to run and hook up at to go to the raw water? I know its not original to come off the fresh water because it is shark bite couplings where they cut the cold water lines to re route to the fresh water tank.

Remember, this is not the ocean, the wave frequency is much shorter and much more dangerous.

View the latest post 350 Mariner bow seat repair


We just purchased a 1999 350 Mariner. Admiral really liked the bow seat. It was in need of repair hoping it would be winter project but it has already collapsed. Plywood core rotting out is main problem: piano hinge was holding back edge and two metal legs in front were held by screws into that rotting plywood.

Here's the question: can a new seat be ordered? If so from where and how does it attach to the boat? The piano hinge seems weak option and why is seat hinged anyway??
Or do I have to rebuild it with marine plywood and fix back of seat more solidly to the boat?

If anyone has done this repair, advice appreciated.

View the latest post Attachment(s) Corrosion Bonding Wires


I have a bit more corrosion on my starboard side than my port side, inspection I found a few bonding wires that didn't seem to have homes. does anyone have any suggestions on where this wire may have gone.? I don't believe that it's been modified much from the factory so it must have connected to something nearby. I'm referring to the loose wire down by the packing tube.

View the latest post Zantrax Link 1000 monitor replacement for Freedom 25 inverter


My Link 1000 monitor for the Freedom 25, 2500 watt inverter/charger has decided to fail. The unit still seems to control the Freedom 25 but the LED display is dim and flickers. Apparently the Link 1000 is out of production. I have not been able to discern which remotes currently in production will be compatible with the Freedom 25 inverter. Has anyone dealt with either replacing or upgrading their monitors that can shed some light. I have yet to reach out to Zantrax because what reading I have done leads me to believe that would lead to frustration.
Thanks for any input

View the latest post Attachment(s) Best DIY way to drain gas tank?


We finally figured out why my port engine won’t run. I’ve got spark and the carburetor is getting gas, but we can’t keep it going without starter fluid. Upon collecting some of that fuel in a jar, we learned that I’ve got water in the gas tank (from storage for too long without stabilizer in the tank… lesson learned!). There’s probably only 10-15 gallons in the tank now (not sure because gauges don’t work).
Some say just add a bottle of Heet and about 15 gallons of gas and I’ll be good to go. Others say NO, drain that tank to get all the water out before putting good gas in! I wish the Heet would be a quick, cheap and easy fix, but I’m thinking draining it would probably be best.
Opinions? Suggestions?

View the latest post Repair Sliding Glass Door


I would like to replace the rollers or trucks that the sliding glass door rides on to the saloon in my 360 SS. How do I remove them or the door to access them? This would also allow access to the sliding screen door for repair.
