View the latest post Attachment(s) Winter cover_ for sale_ fits Carver 390


Hi,

I have fo sale professionally custom made (by Lohmann Sails & Covers www.boatcovers.ca ) winter cover for 1994 Carver 390 (now gone) consisting of three sections, one in each of the bags featured on the photographs. Attached is also the photo of the boat for which this cover is made for. The cover is in very good condition with no rips or tears. Unfortunately I do not have good photo of the boat with the cover on, never thought I'd need one....

This would be ideal for a boat in Pacific North West to protect it from continuous rain, mould and humidity that we experience here. Once put on in the fall will protect the boat from rain and reduce the number of days you will have to spend cleaning that green slimy stuff, removing black streaks and will obviously prolong the life of the wax you put-on the boat during summer. It will help if you have window or deck leaks and in general protect the boat from so much rain and occasional snow that we get here in PNW.

New cover cost from Lehmann is CAD $5200 (plus 12% sales tax) with weeks and sometimes months of waiting. I ask for $1000 (Canadian) $800 US plus shipping (anywhere in US and Canada) if not local pickup or delivery. It takes 2-3 hours to fit and 1-2 hours to remove and fold back in the bag. Putting it on can be done even if it is raining. Taking it off, has to be done on a dry day to prevent mould while it sits in the bag over the summer months.

I can help a potential buyer to fit it for the first time if the boat is in Vancouver or nearby. The general fitting instructions are on Lohmann website with videos.

Just saying Hi to all.
I have recently bought a Carver 3207 Aft Cabin with twin MerCruiser 5.7 l gas engine.
The boat is a 1988 aft cabin model with double berth.
She was bought used here in Quebec, Canada, and has had very little use over the years. Engine hrs are 630.
She is currently stored in a heated warehouse in St-Ours, Quebec near the Richelieu river.
Eventually we would like to cruise the great loop in her.

View the latest post Removing Swim Platform


I want to remove the swim platform from my 1989 Carver 3807. My problem is access to the nuts inside the boat. I can access a couple through the bed platform but do not see any obvious access points elsewhere. Will I have to cut access spots through the aft wall? Thanks in advance for any assistance.

View the latest post Attachment(s) Access to AC unit on 3297


Hello - I just bought a 1986 Mariner 3297. It has an AC unit under the galley counter on the port side. It’s winter in Buffalo so the boat is still shrink wrapped. I’ve been on it a few times to get ahead on some cleaning. Wondering how to access the AC unit. I can see the top of it through the cabinet under the galley sink but how do you really get acces? Wondering if a previous owner covered an access panel on the dinette seat back with carpet?

View the latest post ProMariner Combi Inverter Chargers


Question for the board.

I am assessing installing an inverter.

I began by looking at the ProMariner Combi Inverter which Viper had mentioned was ignition protected in another post. I already have a 60amp Charger which charges the two engine batteries and the one house battery with a three way isolator involved. (I realize I will need to come up with more battery power for the house.)

I would rather install an ignition protected inverter (not a Combi) below deck in the gas engine compartment, but the Combi is the only one I can find that is ignition protected. I noticed that the Combi also states that the temperature should not get above 104 degrees where it is located. I would imagine the engine room gets warmer than that. There isn’t a good location above deck to place the Inverter which is driving the concern. I could put it up there, but may have to put the larger battery bank towards the rear of the boat under the cockpit, so now the wiring is a long run from the installed chargers back to the cockpit batteries,then forward and to starboard to the Inverter and then back down for the electric panel.

Any thoughts on which direction to go? It is a 2006 Carver 33 SS.

View the latest post Aft Camera


I have a camera in the cabin, one in the engine room (both indoor rated), and there apparently was one mounted on the hard top facing aft as a back up camera (assume) which is missing. Ive seen other Carver Boats with the same camera and was wondering if this was an option and if someone could tell me what the camera model is?

Thx.

View the latest post 466 Telephone Intercom Ops


Our new-to-us 2001 466 did not come with any Carver OEM manuals. We'd appreciate input on how the telephone intercom works. I presume it's some sort of ring-down system.

Thanks in advance!!!

View the latest post Attachment(s) Port Engine Overheating


Greetings,

Bought my first boat!!! Very excited and want to learn to do my own repairs, if at all possible. Have a 1997 350 Mariner with a 2 Crusader 350 XL engines. Starboard engine temp is perfect and port engine overheats when over 2200. Had a mechanic come in fill coolant check hoses and replaced both engine's impellers thinking that would do the trick. It's a little better but still overheats and white smoke emits from port engine. I'm thinking of trying Sea Flush with Barnacle buster or Salt Away on my own as a next troubleshooting step and last resort replacing the riser(s). Those are big bucks come to find out. I've been watching you tube videos on this process. Anyone have a link or tips for flushing all the crap that may be in the engine making it overheat? Do I need to remove the impellers when doing this chemical flush? Before I purchased the boat it had sat for a long while...

Many thanks

Rick

Before this Carver I owned 2 each Sport Cruisers and enjoyed the riding, but now it's time to go a bit slower and more comfort.From day one I always wanted a fly bridge and with the Carver 390 my wish came through., see you all on the forum.
