View the latest post Water System


Just purchased a 1988 Carver Mariner 3697. Ice maker not receiving water (entire system was winterized) and pressurized water system not functioning. I found the manual online with a general water diagram, but can't find the 3 tank diagram. Can someone help me locate the diagram and figure out how to get water to the ice maker? (This is my first boat!)

View the latest post Volvo Engine ID


I am new with Carvers and still learning many things. The Volvo Diesels on board are TAMD74P. Just a basic question... what is the difference between a TAMD74L or TAMD74/C? Looks like size and shape and maintenance requirements are the same but I guess I'm just bothered that I don't know the difference.

Is it worth knowing the difference?

Thanks again.

Thanks for having me aboard. I have been boating for many years, with my last boat being a Bayliner 242, but we had just outgrown her. Little daughters turned into married women with big husbands and now a grandchild and needed more room. We found a 450 Voyager and have been very happy.

I am learning about many new systems and boat handling techniques so I welcome the advise and knowledge you can share.

Thanks for the future help!

Is anyone having bridge floor issues? I suspect water has caused soft spots.

View the latest post Volts 1/Volts 2/ Auxilliary switch


I have a 1979 Carver Mariner 28. It's in EXCELLENT shape no hack jobs it's been maintained properly it's whole life. The ONLY issue I am having is when I switch the auxiliary switch on either control console to "Volts 1" I get no fuel tank reading for that engine but "Volts 2" works fine. I have already done all of the obvious things... Cleaned leads and plugs, looked for any disconnections.... Is this possibly a battery connection issue? I'm lost. Everything else works as it should. Maybe fuel sending unit? I can monitor the fuel knowing I keep equal amounts in both tanks (actually I always put a little extra in the tank that won't show the level to be safe... ) I just want my old boat to work 100% correctly. HELP! :help:

View the latest post Voyager 370 holding tank vent filter


I have a 1995 Voyager 370, which I purchased last year. Lately I'm getting a whiff of sewage when flushing the toilet. The Vacuflush block diagram for the system shows a charcoal filter inline with the holding tank vent hose, but I have ripped the boat apart and cannot find a filter of any sort. However, there are places in the boat where the vent hose disappears through bulkheads and perhaps I'm missing something. Can anyone tell me where the filter is, or were they ever installed on this boat?
Thanks,
Dave

View the latest post Glendinning Power Cables


Hello,
On my 2005 396MY I have the Glendinning power cables that decide to work when they want to. I can go weeks and have not problem and then one day I hit the switch and they do not go in or out. Leave them over night and they work again. The problem I see is that there is no access to them unless I take the aft stateroom night stand apart which I have not done yet. However, before I do that I was told there might be a switch that automatically stops the cable once it retracts (in case you are not manning the switch I guess) and this switch might get stuck and then correct it self some how. Looking for some help on both accessing the cables master and if this switch really exists. Thanks for any input

View the latest post Anchor Rope


Need to replace the worn out anchor rope. Looks like 3/4 inch rope to me, any suggestions? I don't want to skimp here so no low quality recommendations just those that meet the need and any additional recommendations are fine.

Would love to go back to a chain windlass system but not this year.
