I am having trouble locating a source for a replacement shear pin for a QL BP1300 thruster. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

View the latest post Vacu Flush Woes

Started firing up the systems on the boat only to find the forward toilet would not build a vacuum. I push the flush pedal, the bowl opens, water flows but just builds up as there is no vacuum in the line. I hear the chug a chug sound so the unit is trying to build a vacuum but just goes on and on. I let it run like this for a good 15 minutes, shut her down and tried again for a good 15 minutes but no joy. Can someone point me in the right direction before I rip everything apart unnecessarily.

Additional info: Worked perfectly fine last fall before winter layup and never an issue. No lines were disconnected or valves closed for winter layup. My procedure is to make sure the holding tank is as empty as possible and since the toilet draws water from the potable water system I simply flush the toilets while connected up to the "pink stuff" until I get a good stream of pink. Flush once and repeat a second time.

View the latest post First ever boat... Finally!

I just found this forum, and I’m tickled to finally be able to join a boating forum as an OWNER instead of as a wannabe dreamer! After deciding in 2010 that I really needed to have my own boat (liveaboard, eventually), and seven years of dreaming and scheming and learning all I could, it all came together for me last fall... and in October, I found myself the proud owner of a ‘92 Carver 33 Aft!

View the latest post Attachment(s) Finally floating!

Foxy Joe was splashed yesterday at 0800hrs. Port Engine fired up instantly, starboard...nothing. 5 hours of climbing around in my engine room, I found a single wire running to my Volvo brain box had become corroded enough to have a voltage drop - which renders a no-start situation. 2 minute fix and she fired up like nothing happened.

Bring on the summer!

View the latest post Hello to the Carver community.

I bought my '76 Santa Cruz 2866 ten years ago as my entry into the "bigger" boat world. I have to say I bought it for the classic lines, and the monster deck. I have since found that surrounding that deck (and underneath it) is a world of fun and enjoyment. The boat is solid. The wood accents give it some class (and cause me some work), but as a retired guy, it's worth it to have something to work on. I have only driven it from the lower station once (a heavy rain on Lake Ontario). The single engine inboard system causes it to drive like a wheelbarrow, but as I don't tow any water skiers, it's slower pace causes much enjoyment. It is a pleasure to live on for short periods, and I'm glad I went this route instead of the houseboat I was originally looking at.

Looking through the topics in this forum, I see that a lot of you have had similar problems to the few that I have had, and realize I might have fixed some of them faster had I looked through these threads a little earlier.

I look forward to sharing information with you.

View the latest post Toilet upgrade

Hey all. I am contemplating replacing the toilet in the aft head of my 404. The original Raritan uses a lot of water to flush so the 18gal tank fills quickly. Looking at a Masterflush or maybe a Vacu flush system. Anybody have real world experience doing this kind of upgrade?
