View the latest post Attachment(s) Carver 444 exhaust problems

I have recently purchased a Carver 444 2003 model, we sailed the motor yacht from Victoria to New South Wales Australia( 649 nm) and have been experiencing exhaust system failures, the fibre glass exhaust tubing on the starboard engine is delaminating and leaking water and exhaust fumes.
On the sea run prior to leaving after I had the engines serviced the first exhaust section after the turbo fell off due to weakening of the end of the pipe, we replaced that section with a stainless steel section however the rest of the system is leaking fumes and water through the skin of the pipes,
they are also getting soft. :cry:
I have located a US Coast Guard recall No 070042T that refers to muffler problems, is anyone aware of anything in reference to exhaust tubing and a replacement /repair methodology.

View the latest post 396 diesel blowers

Hello Carver Folks

I have just bought a 2001 396 with Cummings 370Bs and can't here any blowers when I flip the blower switch on the DC fuse panel or the dash. I have never owned diesel before, but from what I have read is the gas pre-start blowers are not mandatory in a diesel boat. Can everyone confirm that Carver omitted the blowers with diesel but kept all the switched in place?

Regards Dan

View the latest post ISO Exhaust Tip - Carver 440

Hello, Carver Captains... :captain:

Have been on a fruitless online search adventure for sometime now, trying to track down a replacement s/s exhaust tip for my Carver 440.

It's a bolt-on-type stainless exhaust tip, fitting into the 6-inch opening on my port-side exhaust. It angles to outboard @ 45 degrees and flares to almost and 8-inch opening, ejecting my fumes and H2O 90 degrees to the hull.

I have pointed, clicked, typed and swiped until the sea cows have come home and cannot seem to find anything in the online world.

I get a lot of hits with automotive-related exhaust and gas-powered marine sites, but haven't even come close to finding what I need.

Surely somebody out there has had their tip fall off...or knows "a friend" who had that happen. Where did you find a replacement?

Would appreciate any clues on where to look.

Thanks, folks.

She's been pulled and is safely in the building for winter. Now I can get rid of that awful pinkish red bottom paint and do some more buffing. She looked great all season and will look even better next year

View the latest post Sea Water Waste?

I just bought a 1999 350 Mariner. There are 2 waste discharge ports. I have used the one labeled waste but there is another one right next to it labeled Sea Water Waste. What is this and where does it go?

View the latest post Attachment(s) John and Martha - First Light

Hello fellow Carver Yacht Owners. We are John and Martha from Markham, Ontario. Our home port is in Penetanguishene, Ontario at Bay Moorings Marina and the name of our boat is First Light. We have a 1984 Carver 3207 in immaculate shape. We average more than 500nm per summer and more than 40 nights mostly on the hook somewhere in Southern Georgian Bay. We have been boating for more than 40 years. Our goal in 3 years is to travel the Great Loop and spend our winters on the boat somewhere down south – deep south! I don’t think we would do that in the 3207, so we are keeping our eyes open for something a little larger and more efficient.

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.
