View the latest post Heating/AC to Fly Bridge?


Has anyone figured out a clean way to run heat/AC to the fly bridge? Maybe the bigger Carvers already have that but I'm getting a baby C34 in a couple of weeks and I'm concerned about freezing my ass off in the winter. I boat year round and in my 25' Skip Jack sport cruiser the engine covers were in the cockpit where the helm was. With the canvass completely enclosing that area the heat from the engines kept it nice and toasty even on freezing cold days. I'm concerned about being up on the fly bridge even with a complete enclosure. :captain:

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

View the latest post It's On Order!


Hello everyone, it's nice to be a part of the Carver family. I hear that Carver takes care of it's customers. That is nice to hear. I am running up to Sausalito on Monday to sign papers and give them a check. The C34 is in AZ and will hopefully be delivered in the next week or two. I'm actually buying this boat sight unseen and am a little nervous about that. I'm told that it will be the first of the new C series Carver's in the San Francisco Bay Area. That is pretty exciting. They are even borrowing it back so they can show it in the S.F. boat show in late January.

I am coming from a 25' Skip Jack so I am a little nervous about the ability of the Carver to handle heavy seas, logs in the delta, etc. compared to the Skip Jack with it's thick double hull with floating foam in between. The C34 looks like it's pretty sea worthy and got a very good review by Boattest.com. They said that it's a very solid and responsive boat. I guess I'll find out. The Skip Jack may have been tough but I would get beat up in chop and with it's 8' beam and deep V hull it would lean horribly when someone moved around while under way. I think the 34' with it's 13' beam and spacious cabin is going to be so much more user friendly. Anyway, I guess that's about it.

Cheers!

View the latest post Prop Shaft Problem


We just purchased (escrow closes next week) a 1989 Carver 4207 that has a loose nut on the transmission end of the port prop shaft. We are taking possession of the boat next week and moving it to a new marina. Assuming that the taper / keyway has not been damaged from the loose nut condition, we are hoping that we can split the coupling open and just tighten the nut on the end of the shaft and avoid having to have the boat hauled out of the water and the shaft removed. Our boat has Cat 3208's and Twin Disc 507's. We don't have access to the boat now to determine if there is enough room in the engine compartment to open up the coupling and slide it down the prop shaft far enough to be able to get a socket on the shaft nut to tighten it. I'm hoping that someone with this same model boat knows whether or not there is enough room to do this.

View the latest post Dog Safety


We just purchased a Carver 4207 to cruise and live aboard. We have a couple of dogs and want to protect them by installing netting around the deck to keep them from going "swimming". Are there different levels of quality of netting available and where is the best place to purchase it?

View the latest post Shower Door Handle


We own a 2003 Carver 564. The bifold shower door in the bow of the boat is missing a handle. Looks like the handle is 7inches long and has 2 screw at each end 1/2 inch apart. Any recommendations on where I can get the shower door handle replaced?

I'm considering the purchase of an '89 4207 .... Is the hull construction solid fiberglass on this model with balsa core above the water line?

I am obviously a new member who is yet to own a boat.
Over the past 2 years trying to decide on what Make, what model and how big.
I have had no bias as to which make I like until recently and now find myself leaning towards the Carver brand.
I am sure many will question my decision to buy a boat which is relatively large (52'Voyager) considering that I have not owned a boat before. And welcome any negative and positive feedback into my rationale of why I am looking at a boat of this size.
