View the latest post Installing New Depth Transducer - Mariner 360

Has anyone Installed a new Depth Transducer for a Mariner 360? I am trying to figure out how to fish the cable from the bilge to the bridge. I am replacing a old analog unit with a shoot thru the hull digital one.

View the latest post Prop sizing

Hey guys. I have a 28 foot 1978 santa cruz I bought last season. Everything has been totally rebuilt. But I think the props are too small for the boat and power. They are 14x 11. Any suggestions ???

I'm still a newbie in this game and still have lots to learn.
I've discovered I've got a leak on the pressure side of my fresh water and if leaving on the power to the pump, my tank will pump dry into my bilge so got to track that down. It could be the water heater tank un in the bow but will look into further when the weather warms up. I did find, please look at pictures, under the cover in the aft cabin this conglomeration of vales and pumps. Anyone know wth these are?
Thanks so much for any info

View the latest post Want to purchase a Voyager

Hello, I am new to forum. I am currently looking at a few Voyagers (45, 53 and 56). I know nothing about Volvo diesels, and some of the Carvers we are looking at have Volvos. I have a lot to learn about Carvers, but I like what I have seen so far. Seem like well built boats that we can liveaboard for months at a time. Any advice on what i should beware of, any issues with certain Volvos and Cummins, would be appreciated! Look forward to learning a lot and becoming a knowledgeable contributor in the future. Thank you, Jeff

View the latest post Using aft reserve tank?

Hi Guys!

Question for you: I have a 1995 Carver 390 powered by Crusaders. This boat, like others in its size class, has a 125-gallon reserve fuel tank in the back, as well as the two 100-gallon tanks on the side. I don't know if this tank has ever been used, and I would like to use it next time I'm cruising in Canada, so I can take across the border as much of the cheaper American gas as I can hold.

The thing is, I'm a little reluctant because since the tank hasn't been used in a long time (if ever), I don't want to put a bunch of gas in there only to find it either (a) leaks, or (b) has guck in it.

So, my questions are:
1) Should I be concerned?
2) If I have reason, is there any way to check it before I use it?
3) Would it make sense to put in a small amount (10 - 20 gallons) and see what happens?

View the latest post GPS Anchor Drag Alarm

Hi folks, I would like to tap into your expertise regarding an anchor alarm.
I am getting a new Chartplotter this season and am interested in using the 'anchor drag alarm' feature.
The Garmin instructions state that when enabling the alarm: "...Select Set Radius, and select a distance on the chart."
Can anyone let me know what 'formula' you use? For instance, if I am in 10 ft or water and have let out 40 ft of chain (about 3.5:1), do I set for a 40 ft radius? Do I allow for a 360 degree spin, while assuming the anchor stays in one place?
That seems the logical setting but I would appreciate your advise.

View the latest post 3207 Swim platform- Dimensions and supports

Hi All,

I inherited my parent's 85 aft cabin when they went bigger last fall. As winter is stating to finally draw to an end in Wisconsin and the snowmobiles are put away I've started to shift my eyes to the boat and what my first projects are going to be.

I'm thinking the first task is to expand the swim platform... I did it on my old boat (277 Regal) and loved the extra room while we were out on the hook. Problem is the boat is over an hour away and I wanted to start some pre-work on it without having to drive up and take measurements an pictures... which is where you nice folks come in!

Does anyone have the dimensions for a stock 3207 swim platform, and have any pics and details on the support structure and how it's mounted to the transom?

Thanks in advance!!
