View the latest post adjusting the hanging roller doors angle


We have a 2006 Carver 36MY. Our aft cabin door and aft cabin head door are both "out of plumb" with the door frame.

I assume the top rollers are adjustable, and the side closest to the latch is to be adjusted for striker height, followed by the opposite side for door way frame match (aka plumb)

So my question is: how in the heck do you get to the top of door adjusting threaded shafts while its hanging inside the roller track? I'd really love a picture of someone adjusting these?

As always, your feedback is much appreciated.

View the latest post 2001 Carver 570 Voyager


I am going to look at a 2001 Carver 570 Voyager in Stuart, Florida in 2 weeks and would appreciate any advice anyone is willing to give me. I don't know much about Carvers so I'd appreciate heads up on any known problems I should be on the look out for. i.e soft spots that are known to happen, windows that leak, known electrical problems that occur with the model, etc... Thanks in advance.

This is the boat.

View the latest post Attachment(s) Santego 3867 dash panel replacement


I finally broke down and tried my hand at replacing the original dash panels with faux teak abs plastic panels. Replaced the original gauges with Sierra Sahara series gauges.

View the latest post Exhaust Hose


1994 390 CPMY with 454’s. How do you know when to replace the exhaust hose? Mine is still pliable, but a lot of cracks on the outer part of the hose. Do you replace when it is hard? Mine is not leaking or noises. What guidance can I get? I am sure it is original hose, but as you know virtually no pressure in it, and no CO leaking. What criteria do you all use for replacement, where we are talking $55.00/ft for hose.

Thanks!

Tony

I have Volvo Penta shifters on my Carver and have yet to discover if there is a way to switch from one helm to another without shutting down the engines. Anyone familiar with these controls that can explain the process.

View the latest post 10 month old batterys dead


This boat is ruining boating for me . :censored:
New house and starting batteries in our 44 cpmy , Feb. 2018 in TN .
Took 3 months to get it here to AZ and in the water . It was in its slip for 3 months then hauled out for storm damage repair , been on the hard now since the 1st of October . Going back in the water next week (2nd week of Jan 2019) .
Repair shop called today to inform me I need 4 new batteries ! All are dead and will not charge .
Any thought on what would cause this ?
Only CO detectors (3or4 of them) were on . Would these drain all 4 ?
I'm sure I'm going to have to replace the batteries .
What are the best ? :help:
