View the latest post trim tab controls

Has anyone changed the controls for the trim tabs? I have the little buttons and have purchased the rocker type controls. Looks like the hole for the rocker set may be a little bigger than the existing opening. True?

Also, is there a trick for removing the base for the button controls?

Thanx in advance.

View the latest post Balancing amount of gas in internal tanks - Carver 41 CMY

We recently purchased a 2006 Carver 41 CMY. The owners manual talks about valves on the bottom of the main tanks towards the front, inboard section of both main tanks and on the sides of the auxiliary tanks you can open to balance the volume of gas side to side in the boat. This would appear to be important as the generator runs only off the port.

For the life of me I've looked all over the place and can't locate anything that looks like a valve. Both main tanks appear to be sitting flush against the hull of the boat, so I'm pretty sure there isn't a valve underneath them.

Any suggestions???

View the latest post Aqua Mats 466 Carver

I’m trying to find a company that makes aqua mats and already has the templates for them. I want to do the helm area, lower aft, swim platform and steps. I have a 466 and I have seen several 466 boats with them but I cannot find who makes them. Any help would be appreciated.

View the latest post Attachment(s) Unidentified Hoses

I have some unidentified heater hoses that are laying between my port engine and port side gas tank that are zip tied together. The hoses are not attached to anything and run aft to a pvc tube next to my port engine shaft tube. Any ideas appreciated before I look further.

View the latest post Carvr 325 MY Transmission overheating

Hello everyone. I am the proud owner of my first boat - a 1996 Carver 325 Motor Yacht. I love the boat but so far she does not love me. Last year we took the bought out, had an alarm which turned out to be an overheating starboard transmission. Had my marina replace the transmission and cooler with new during the winter. Just took the boat out for the first time this year. Had the same overheating problem with the starboard transmission. The engine is running well and not overheating. This tells me there is something wrong with the cooling circuit for the transmission. But what? The transmission manufacturer wants them to pull it out and send it back. The marina doesn't want to void the warranty. I don't think it is the transmission but in the cooling circuit, the transmission is a symptom not the cause. I am looking for suggestions on what possible problems could e occurring outside the transmission? I would appreciate any advice.

View the latest post Time for a New Carver?

My 2006 Carver 42 Super Sport has treated me well, but I think it's time to upgrade to a newer vessel.

Currently, my eyes are set on this beauty:


Is there another model I should consider checking out? Any major issues I should be aware of? I'm doing research on my own but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask the experts. :captain2:

View the latest post Clarion disk changer stuck

Hello all! I loaded up my cartridge for my Clarion CD changer yesterday. Re-inserted, turned the power on and I got a message of ERR - 2. Tried to eject the cartridge from the changer, and it does not come out. Sounds like it is trying to change a CD. Unit hold 6 CD's, thinking I may have loaded one wrong. Any thoughts on how I can get that cartridge to eject out of unit? The cartridge is separate from the control unit. Thanks! 8-) er
