Hi all, just bought my first carver 4 weeks ago and like it a lot, it's a montego 25 mid cabin with a mercruiser 5,7 from 1990. I'm situated in Sweden so the season is about to end within the closest few week... To bad. On the positive side is that i will have plenty of time fixing during the off season Hope to get a lot of good advise from you experienced carver owners.

Hi, I'm new to the forum. We have had our Montego for nearly 20 years and run a lot of hours/year. We replaced the original 3.7's with Jasper remans and they now have 400 hours. We can't keep the boat on the water due to a variety of problems that are all engine related. Want to convert to 4.3l Vortecs. From a reliability perspective I'm looking at a 4.3l, 4 barrel carb Mercruiser reman from Michigan Mortorz (3 year warranty). This will be about a 15k conversion unless I could find relatively new, low hour used engines. If anyone has advise, knows of used engines or any other input I would appreciate. Thanks.

The cooling fins on the AC in the main salon began to disintegrate and "spray" tiny pieces of aluminum all over the main cabin. The unit was replaced by a new Marine Air unit 2 seasons ago and the new unit is now doing the same thing. There is no evidence of sea water intrusion into the space - it is dry except for the normal water present in the collection pan for the condensation run off. Any one else have this problem? I don't wan to replace the unit again without knowing what is going on here.

New guy from Chicago with a 4207. Bought my boat a few years ago while in the midst of the divorce from hell. It was structurally sound and mechanically perfect, just needed some serious cleaning and all new soft goods. I love my projects and this kept me occupied. It has been such a great boat to own during the summer that last year I did what most people dream of doing and kept it in the water during winter and basically lived aboard. Best condo in downtown Chicago.
Any other 4207 owners here?

I am thinking about replacing the carpet in my 2004 396 while it is on the hard in heated storage this winter. Last year I pulled the carpet up around the galley area when I put in hardwood flooring and found it was glued down and a bear to get up. Does anyone have experience doing this and is willing to share their knowledge and techniques that might make the job go easier?
