View the latest post A/C ductwork

I have a 91 Carver Montego 32'. I have installed the a/c unit under the bench seat between the galley and the aft berth. Does anyone know how to remove the wall behind the bench seat? I need to raise the rear cushion about 3" but can't get it loose from the wall. Also it would make running the ductwork easier. Any help would be appreciated.

View the latest post Head Additives

Would like to hear what others have had good success with. I have tried quite a few over the years. The last 2 year stint was with Odorlos which I must say worked quite well. I ran out and decided to try the hyped "Noflex Digester". Tried it for the first time this weekend but obviously that is really not enough time to see if it works well.

Lets hear what you have been using and how well it has worked for you. The Odorlos worked 95% of the time, once in a while there would be the standard foul smell when one flushes indicating a non working situation otherwise it has done well.

View the latest post Wall mounted knife magnet???

I'm thinking of installing Wall mounted knife magnet. We like to cook a lot and I don't want my sharp knifes bouncing around in the silverware drawer. I've never used a knife magnet and I'm not sure how secure the knifes stay attached to the magnet while traveling.

Does any one have a knife magnet installed on their boat. How well do they work?

View the latest post 356 forward head holding tanks issue

Hello! I've recently discovered that the forward head on our 2002 Carver 356 aft cabin appears to have 2 small holding tanks. the tank closest to the bow does not empty with a pumpout.. there appears to be a valve separating the tanks but the valve won't move and I'm afraid to force it. I'm assuming if the valve could be opened the tank would pump out? Assuming I'm on the right track in the first place....
Any help out there? thanks so much.

View the latest post Attachment(s) 87/90 3807 Carver need photos of FWC/Closed cooling

Looking for photos of FWC/closed cooling systems on 87/90 3807 aft cabin, with 7.4 merc's. Including the mounting brackets that hold the heat exchanger. Also where the hoses are routed to. Is heat exchanger located on the front of engine by water pumps, or above transmission? Getting boat ready to head south next next winter. Boat has been in fresh water its whole life.

View the latest post Attachment(s) WOT less than 3k

Hi all. Hoping to confirm diagnosis.

New to us boat came with reman long block 5.7 thunderbolt 4v engine. On first cruise would not cross 3k rpm. Installing mechanic adjusted timing and idle. Now on acceleration @ 2500 + mild popping noises and still wont cross 3k. Mech says is control module mounted on top of motor.

Wondering if this rings true to experts here.

Thanks for any insight you can share,

View the latest post Mercruiser 7.4 MPI vs 7.4 MPI Bluewater Horizon

This past weekend a friend was on our boat, he has the same boat only about 3 years older. He was impressed by how quickly our boat came onto plane and cruised about 24.5 MPH at 3400 rpm. He has 7.4's with carbs. I told him I have the same motors with MPI. Later in the evening, back at the dock he asked to see the motors. When he saw the "Bluewater Horizons" he told me these are magnum motors with 380 HP and 490lbs of torque, I thought the only difference from the standard MPI and the Horizons was fresh water cooling. The standard MPI's are 310hp with 400lbs of torque.

Can anyone confirm or dispel this?

View the latest post 98 405 Ignition Keys

Okay I am beginning to wonder if I am a jinx to my boat. I moved it to the Gulf Coast of Mississippi a couple weeks ago and then we get a hurricane. Thankfully we didnt get a drop of rain and very light wind as it went east of my boat.
So I am leaving the boat yesterday and realized I didnt have my keys. Yep they are gone and I surmise I left them on my cargo cover of my F150 before I drove away.

Any thoughts on replacing the keys/ switches?

I called Pat in parts at Carver and he was most helpful. They didnt have have the parts but maybe Cole Hersee would? So I called them and they are obsolete with no replacement part number.

I probably can remove the switches and get keys made but I was hopeful to simply get keys from Carver or new switches because they are 20 years old now.

Cabin door is locked as well

Any thoughts because I didnt see this topic on the forum anywhere? :help:
