View the latest post Rear Sliding Cabin Door

Hello all,
I have a 1995 Carver 355 and the rear sliding acrylic door is getting hard to open or close.
I have tried spraying a dry lube on the top and bottom tracks. That seemed to help for a while bit now it is getting so my wife sometimes can't open it to leave the boat. :help: That is not a good situation.
Does someone have any info on removing and repairing this thing so it will be easier to operate?
Thanks for any help and advice you may give.

View the latest post Attachment(s) Fuel Pump

The Fuel pump went out on my starboard 1993 Crusader XL. I ordered this part from Amazon

I installed the pump and the engine starts and runs great, but I couldn't get the fuel line connectors to stop leaking. I took it apart and put it back together 5 times with different amounts of torque on the nuts and Loctite on the threads, but it would always leak fuel between the hole in the nut where the fuel line passes through.
The last time I took it apart, i broke one of the fuel lines CRU98148 #22 in the diagram

My plan was to just replace everything from the fuel filter housing forward including an OEM fuel pump, but I can't find the parts.

Can these fuel lines be replaced with flexible ones?
Does anyone know a good source for these parts?
Any advice on how to make those connectors not leak?

View the latest post Hello!

New member here, not an owner, but rather a buyer. I'm looking to purchase a 4207 this spring. Anyone from Michigan will know what I mean when I say we lost our family cottage "up north" and I have decided on weekend boat living with my family and I. I think the layout of the 4207 hooked me, but the engine room size lured me in. As a 25 year mechanic who has fallen out of love with cars and racing, I'd rather work at having a cool "yacht". Act as if right? :drunk:

I've already learned a lot here in 10 minutes. I know how I'm spending my Thursday night. Thank you to all who make this page possible. :captain2:

View the latest post Need Recommendations for Bimini on 23 Montego

Good afternoon everyone!
I bought a 23 Montego a couple months ago. The original Bimini was removed, and a junky universal top from Atwoods was added. I would like to go back to the original top style but I cannot seem to find a frame for it anywhere online. I can always fabricate one myself, but wanted to ask here to get ideas before I go to that trouble. Thanks!

Hello everyone,
I have been lurking on this site for a while now and decided to join.
I have a 1995 Carver 355 and have owned it a couple of years now.
I have her berthed in Northeast Al on the Tennessee River.
I have already benefitted from the great advice and post from all the experts on this site.
Hope to be able to return the favors at some time.
Thanks very much.

View the latest post Access to sea strainer

Anybody have any suggestions on how to get to the starboard sea strainer on a 1991 Carver 33 aft cabin? I can see it, it is under the dinette but now way to get there. Access panels under seat cushions go nowhere. Thanks in advance.

View the latest post AC/DC plexiglass slider

I have another strange question. Own a 91 Carver 33. I would like to clean the plexiglass sliding windows back side in front of the electrical panel inside the cabin. The slider is built into the wood side. Anybody have any luck or ideas on how to clean the back side of this glass? Obviously I can’t get my hand in there.
