View the latest post Flybridge removal Part 2: Mariner 28?

Considering an '84 Mariner 28

Will need to haul from Mass to Maine. I will use a professional service.

Boat is listed as 9'11" clearance, but I assume that is afloat from waterline to top of windscreen.

I believe through Mass, NH, and ME my limit is 13'6". Anyone with experience know height on hydraulic trailer? I'm hoping I only have to remove windscreen (if anything).

Thanks in advance for any input!

View the latest post Salon AC Removal

Anyone know how to remove the AC Unit out of the Salon on a 2004 39MY? It might fit through the access panel if I remove the blower motor. Otherwise it looks like the TV cabinet needs to be removed. The condensation pan is rusted and leaking.

Thanks for any advice.

We are so excited about our future purchase. Just need to do the haul out and we're done. :captain2: We have opnly had ski boats in the past so we are excited about selling our 38 foot motorhome and moving on to the water. We will be in Channel Islands in CA if anyone else on here is located there too. I am sure we will have many questions.

View the latest post waste tank 1998 405

I own a 1998 405 Carver aft cabin. It has a waste smell coming from the front holding tank area. I have replaced all the lines and also pressure tested the tank and there are no leaks. As far as i can tell the odour is permeating from the tank. Has anyone heard of this happening?
Also, does anyone have experience replaceing one of these tanks. There does not seem to be enough room to remove it. It is under the dinette seating on the port side.

View the latest post Changing holding tank in 36 Mariner

Greetings all. Taking possession of '06 Mariner 36 next week. After looking at several different Carver models, we decided on the Mariner. The main thing we didn't like was the 20 gallon holding tank. The newer Mariner models have a 31 gallon tank, so obviously this was an issue or complaint with previous owners. I'm wondering if it's possible to replace the 20 gallon tank with the larger 31? Just trying to reduce the amount of trips I have to make to the busiest marina on the lake. Appreciate suggestions. Thanks!

View the latest post New Carver owner......almost

Greetings all. Due to take possession of our 2006 36 Mariner next week. We're going from a 32' express cruiser, which has been a great boat for us, to the 36 Mariner. Carvers all over our dock and our lake and I have always been envious. We're excited to move up and can't wait to get boating. BTW, Table Rock Lake near Branson Missouri. :usa:

View the latest post Any winterizing/storage tips out there?

Good Morning All,

So my Carver is coming home to my yard so I can finish the restoration. I think I should have no problems with the engines. Really it is as easy as running pink antifreeze through them and fogging the carb and cylinders. The water and sewer system is a little different.

I already had the sewage tank diluted many times and pumped out. There is maybe 1"-2" in the tank under the toilet. Do I pump that out or dump a few gallons of pink antifreeze in there? What should I do with the lower tank? Leave it alone or pump a few gallons of pink antifreeze to it?

The water system...I think I finally found the tank! Yay! Just pop a hose off and let it drain to the hull and out the bottom? Then add pink antifreeze and pump it through the system?

Any help would be great. I am also covering it myself with tarps. It should be fun!
