View the latest post Condensation around window hatch


We own a 1990 Carver Santego. There is a large window hatch directly above the berth which I love because it brings in great light and fresh air. The drawback is when it's cold outside (cold like in So. California cold) the window sweats from condensation. I have to cram a cushion up into it to collect the drops of water to keep it from dripping onto the bed/pillows. We do keep an air drier going while we're away during the week but when I show up on weekends, the cushion is usually still wet and goes outside to dry out.

Any suggestions on how to circumvent this issue???

View the latest post Fuel Capacity


I just purchased a 1989 Model 4207. The manual on the boat says the 4207's have (2) 200 gallon diesel fuel tanks. The sales listing for the boat said it had 200 gal TOTAL capacity. Did all the 4207's that had the diesel CAT 3208's have 400 gal. total capacity?

Hello, on The 2005 Carver 396 can you tell me where I can find the Glendinning power cable system. Not accessible through the engine room and I am assuming somewhere in the aft cabin. Thought I would ask before I start taking apart :confused:
Thanks Bob

View the latest post 76 mariner 28ft twin 302 carb issue


I am a former mechanic and i hate carbs with a passion, perhaps its because im a young wippersnapper and can't figure out where to hook up the lap top. any way i just bought a 76 28ft mariner with twin pleasurecraft 302 fords and v drives. port engine fires right up and i mean right up. starboard fights you then floods and blows black smoke after a few minutes. so i tried a simple trick and swapped the carbs. starboard now happier than a clam. the previous owner had both carbs rebuilt last year and had continual problems with the starboard engine and had that carb rebuilt 2 more times to no avail. i have recipts for the services. is there somewhere on this toilette like fuel delivery system than can be cracked and causing it to pour fuel into the manifold? or possible something that is easily overlooked when rebuilding a holley 4 barrel? I'd rather not have to buy a new or remaned carb if i can fix it easily.

View the latest post Carver 366 Bow thruster OIL


Has anyone used a generic oil to top up a QL (Volvo) bp800. My manual calls for a Volvo p/n 41100129 oil which is not readily available where I live.

It smells and looks like Auto transmission fluid. It is red and very light. Any advice would be appreciated. My location is Queensland Australia.... a long way from home!!

View the latest post DOWNUNDER OWNER


Hi everyone,

I moved my Carver 366 from Jacksonville FLA to Bribie Island Australia. Obviously I used a freighter via Panama for the move. The tanks on the carver are verrrry limited.
I now live on a waterfront property with my pride and joy out on my pontoon. It is really livin'the deream and that is the name of the vessel Livin'The Dream
Now that I've joined the forum, I hope you can all be my 'First Mate' and help me as I am in a very remote location where services on a scale of 1 to 10 would not register.
I will be posting my first help request later today for your advice.
Cheers for now

Claude Xuereb
