View the latest post Carver 440 exhaust problem

I have Cummins 475 hp engines. The exhaust is terminated through 45 degree elbows at the transom and out past the swim platform. My probelm is a tremendous amount of sooting that is accumulating both over my dinghy mounted at the rear of the swim platform and all over the stern of the boat. Has anyone ever tried extending the exhaust pipes to the rear edge of the swim platform to stop this. The engines are in tune with no issues. Any suggestions would be welcomed.

View the latest post 2000 Carver 406 Aft Cabin

Just picked up my Carver 406 Aft Cabin last weekend and so far am really enjoying it. I traded up from a 1997 Sea Ray 400 Sundancer and we are really enjoying the extra comforts and roominess of the Carver. I would be very interested in communicating with other 406 owners to talk about their experiences with their own boats.

Happy boating!

View the latest post gasket on flybridge steering?

I own a great 3207 that has been in my family since 86. My only concern is my flybridge steering is leaking hydraulic fluid from the front of the console. I undid the bolts, thinking I needed to find a bleed valve. Since this, it leaks. Is there a gasket or should I just make my own?

View the latest post Deck railing skirt material

On my 1995 325 AFT the hard panels on the outside of the rails are missing. This is the railing on the deck just above the aft berth. It appears they were cut off as I can see grinder marks on the railing where some of the mounting holes are.

My wife wants hard side skirting vs. canvas. I'm going to DIY this but have them custom cut. Does anyone know what material I should use? Where can I find the stand offs Anyone done this before or have some tips?

Thanks in advance.

View the latest post Attachment(s) '96 325 Aft Cabin, New member

Hi, we're new here. We've had our 325 AC '96 for about 4 years now. Port eng rebuilt 3 yrs ago, stbd rebuilt 1 yr ago. We boat out of Freeport, Long Island, NY. This is our 4th boat, having started with a 19' Dynasty cuddy, 24 ft Chris Craft Euro express cruiser, then a few years off until we got a Maxum 2400 SCR mid cabin pocket cruiser with AC.

I've done many improvements to the Carver from radar arch, to high bilge alarm, to the most recent replacement of twin cooktops to Induction ; best upgrade yet !

Tom (& Liz).

View the latest post Anti-Syphon Valves

I have a 1997 325 Aft Cabin with 350 Crusaders. The manual says there are anti-syphon valves in the fuel system, and recommends inspecting/cleaning them. The book does not show you where they are located or what they look like. Can anybody give me this information?

Sitting here on my 466 and all the monitors started beeping. I believe the signal is for low power. How does one ascertain if power fell?

Greetings everyone...My wife and I are new to boating and our first purchase is a '93 Carver 300 Aft Cabin. In pretty rough shape when we got her, as the prior owners had left the state (WA) and neglected her for two years before deciding to sell. After detailing the exterior, a complete gut job and reno of the interior, and a full tune-up of both Crusader 350's plus new heat exchangers and risers, she is now in nearly perfect condition and we look forward to enjoying many years of happy cruising in and around the San Juan Islands of North Puget Sound.

We now feel like we have our own waterfront condo for less than the cost of a decent used car, and we love the space and comfort of the Aft Cabin layout.

Looking Forward to sharing adventures with other Carver fans! Dan :captain2:
