After our first season with our 356, I would like to update all my navigation equipment/electronics. I have all the old ray marine equipment that is inoperable or has burnt screens. I also want to add a autopilot since the boat doesn’t currently have one. I am looking for a supplier that will explain what equipment I need and works well with each other. Not just sell me stuff I may not need for my type of boating. Thanks, in advance.

My salon door drapery (curtain) is showing some wear and dirt. It is hung top and bottom by sliding hardware. It is a light brown color and Im in Florida so there is some sunfade also. has anyone cleaned this drapery or replaced it?

Hi everyone. Hopefully someone has some ideas here:
Bought a 2001 Carver 406 with Cummins 330’s last April. She was exceptionally well maintained, and the 2 surveyors who inspected her were highly qualified with one specializing in Cummins. She was documented at achieving 19 knots at 2600 WOT and 17 at 2400 cruise with 3 full tanks and 4 adults aboard. Due to other stuff going on, we were not able to take her out for about 2 months at which time she could only make 12 knots at a little over 2000 with a WOT AT 2400 making about 13 knots. She is berthed in Baltimore. I had a diver clean the bottom with no change. No smoke on startup or underway, and all gauges are normal. I cannot detect any rough running. Both engines fire right up with no smoke.
She is scheduled to be hauled 11/19, so I will see if we are dragging anything, but I would have thought the diver would have noted something that dramatic.
If someone has a similarly configured 405/406, what is your cruise speed? Anyone had a similar problem or ideas? The aftercoolers were serviced last winter.

I have two shelves (at least that is what I will call them) between the cockpit and the swim platform. They are used to embark when tied up to a high pier. See photo where I am standing on "shelf".
Unfortunately, they both retain a puddle of water after a rain or washing because there is no drain. Is it possible to install a drain and if so, how should it be done. I assume some other 396 owners have confronted this issue. Thanks.

View the latest post Attachment(s) Greetings!
I'm very pleased to be a part of this forum now. I ran across it while searching the news about the closing of Carver Yachts earlier this year. A sad day.. but maybe not forever?
My Carver is not a "yacht" by any means but it is a 1967 Camper 21', a beautifully restored lapstrake wooden model and repowered with a Mercruiser Alpha1 by a relative of mine. Not sure how much discussion there is about these "vintage" boats but I'm happy to chime in on the subject at any time!
