View the latest post Fuel tank capacity - 1998 355

I am trying to get a definitive answer on fuel tank capacity for my 1998 Carver 355.

In my research I have come across the total gallons as 318 (though sometimes as 320) gallons. I do have the aft aux tank which I see references to being 120 gallons, and then the port/stbd tanks at 100 gallons (of course this equals 320 gallons, not 318) though sometimes the port/stbd tanks are listed at 99 gallons (which would give 318 gallons).

I do have the owners manual but it is not clear on exactly what is what, thus my question. Any help would be appreciated!

View the latest post fancy battery setup

So the previous owner of my boat gave me 6 new batteries. I have decided that I want 2 batteries per engine and one house battery does and one have a diagram handy on how I should go about this without blowing myself out of the water?

View the latest post 4207 on Prop Depth.

Hi Folks,
Has anyone with a 4207 happen to know what the distance is from the keel bottom, to the bottom of the propellors? I would like to be able to bring the boat up on our Club's Tidal Grid next month, but , I need to know the measurement from the keel bottom, to the bottom of the propellors, so that I don't wind up bending the propellors. Has anyone got a schematic drawng of this model?
Thanks for your help

View the latest post exterior window trim

New to the site....We're looking at a '94 37 that has pitting around each exterior window trim. The trim appears to be aluminum. Is this common? What is the fix and why did it do this in the first place?

We really like the boat but the paint has come off and the pitting really detracts from the rest of the boat. How labor intensive is it to get it back to normal?

The boat has been boat house kept in the Northwest nearly its entire life.

Thank you!

View the latest post Storage Box on Swim Platform

I have the 2005 Carver 396. On the swim platform there is a storage/dock box that I feel is in the way. I have a dock box on the dock so I really don't need the additional storage. Has anybody removed the box and if so what can I expect to find underneath? Is the fiberglass finished off and just a few holes to be filled.
Thanks Bob

View the latest post Newbie to the forum

I used to own a 1974 F44 Trojan MotorYacht but had a Brain Tumor Jan 2011 removed and had to sell her.

Last year we bought a 79' Carver 28 Mariner that we have almost finished restoring. It was stuck in 1979, BAD! Now it's updated and cleaned and fixed up.
We presently have it for sale to try to move up to a Carver 3207 Aft Cabin.

I'm Jason

Hello, I need to replace a cover on the lights that are down below in the salon on my newly acquired 2005 model 396. Does anybody know if just the cover is replaceable or do I need to purchase the whole assembly? If so any leads on where to buy them? Thanks

View the latest post Kariba Washer / Dryer Combo

I have a Kariba washer / dryer combo on my '89 Carver 4207. It takes 2 hours to dry most loads. Is this normal? I'm in Southern Calif with pretty dry climate even on the water. Any ideas? Is Kariba still in business?
