View the latest post Attachment(s) 2001 mariner curtains and salon panels / cloth

hi - does anyone know how to remove the side panels that are upholstered with patterned fabric so they can be re upholstered. I recently bought my boat and the patterns are outdates and dirty. I was able to remove some pieces but cant find any screws etc for the panels right above the seats on both sides.

Any pictures would be great as well

View the latest post Attachment(s) Carver 3207 Exhaust Hose

While Removing the Aft cabin Carpet the other day i noticed on the Port side bed platform that it was wet near the bottom. not exactly sure why so i removed the mattress and took a look at the exhaust notice a Blue stream of liquid (antifreeze from winterizing ) doing a bit more digging i noticed a spot where the exhaust is rubbing against a wood support and has worn thin. Ok so that's about 48 inches of hose does anyone know the size i believe its 4 inch soft side hose.. i just want to order the right hose.

View the latest post Winter Solstice Finally Here

Happy Dec. 21 everybody from the 44.51 parallel. While this may not be accurate from your perspective, I consider this day the hump to get over to look forward to boating season, instead of looking back, putting more distance astern. After today, we will gain sunlight each day. Sometimes by seconds, some by minutes. Sunlight today is 8hrs 49 min. In 6 months, we will gain 6 hours 45 seconds. It's time to spin that wheel, turn boating minds 180 degrees, and head back to port, and start singing Creola. I can almost feel the warm, wispy sea breeze. Finally, just so there is a sense of reality to this message, winds on the bay today are N 30mph, with occasional 35mph gale gusts. Waves 3' to 6', water temp of 34.

Prepare to come about in 6 hrs, 33 min! Happy Holidays all! 8-) er

View the latest post Drain Plug Reinstall

Took the drain plug out to see what would come out. Nothing did but should I use TFE paste or Teflon to reinstall? Honestly I can’t remember what was on the brass plug when I removed it.

View the latest post Helm speaker volume low

On our 2006 Carver 36 MY , we have been adjusting the Clarion CMD4 head unit settings as well as the remote wired helm controller. It appears the fader set to all front is salon and helm. Fader all rear is aft bedroom only, but there's a knob in the aft bedroom to lower the aft stateroom volume even lower?

My question is why the helm speakers appear to be 50% less volume than the salon speakers when they appear to be joined/linked on the same volume control? Is there some other volume reducer for the helm I haven't found yet? Does the Helm remote control have and override for the Helm speakers, if so how is that adjusted?

Wondering how to increase Helm volume and decrease salon volume for more even balance, without just replacing the whole thing with a Fusion 3 zone unit (maybe later)

As always, appreciate the feedback,

View the latest post Replacment vinyl stripes

Anyone replaced their vinyl stripes? P.O. (first or second?) have removed much of the factory stripes from our 2006 Carver 36 MY. I've found some remining on the port side lower, that appears to be 3/4 or 1" black with 1/4 Gold on top, and a second 1/4 Gold above a 1/4 space.

Is there a "go-to" plce who supplies these stripe kits? or is it just automotive stuff? 3M from Wesco or someone similiar?

We'd like to replace the missing stripes, maybe skip going around the front salon window area? Just do port/starbaord sides, upper & lower areas.

As always, your input is much appreciated!

View the latest post Looking at the model 396.

I need to find out the true overall length. I’m in a 40’ slip and my marina is very strict about hanging out past the pier. I would also like any feedback on this model. Cruising speed, handling in real life conditions on Lake Michigan.

View the latest post Refrigerator Question

Why does my refrigerator appear to still be on, not cooling just making noises, even though I have turned the temperature selector to the off position inside the fridg. The only way I can get the refrigerator to stop making noise is to turn the breaker off on the electrical panel. The problem is there is an outlet that powers a lamp that I use instead of the 12 V lighting that is on the refrigerator breaker. Is this normal?
