View the latest post Attachment(s) 396 Motor Yacht

Hello everyone,

My wife and I are looking at a 2000 Carver 396 Motor Yacht. 1400 hrs on the engine and just short of 3000 on the generator. Anything specific we should look out for or take extra care looking at before we make an offer?

View the latest post Attachment(s) Warning Light Panel Source?

Last Summer we boated 1 hour to dinner then docked with GenSet running. 1.5 hours at dinner then were returning home when some dash warning lights came on for the stbd engine. These indicators were 5 graphic lights depicting engine overheat and other scary things. The digital gauge readout was normal but I still had to check the engine room. All seemed normal there too. I restarted both engines and the lights did not turn on again or since. MY QUESTION: What system controls these warning lights? Engine sensors only? Engine Transmission Controller?
My thoughts are since the warning lights reset immediately, it must be an electronic controller, but no manual shows these displays.

View the latest post Attachment(s) Can anyone tell me what make /model anchor light?

I have a '92 Carver 33 Aft Cabin. When taking the bimini off to get it replaced I trashed the anchor mast light. Can anyone tell me what make or model it may be. The round base is about 2.5"[image]

I think I posted the pictures correctly. . .

View the latest post Handling qualities of the 325/326 short aft cabin models

Considering a 2000 326. Have read some less-than-flattering reports about it being top-heavy and unstable. I've read reports of considerable bobbing motions, even at dock/anchor. I realize these boats are floating condos, but is the stability really this bad? Carver sure seems to have sold many of this design over the years for the handling to be so terrible.

View the latest post Balsa wood core areas of 1977 Santa Cruz 2566

I'm looking to install Hull Shield on our boat to discourage marine growth. It only works, however, if the associated transducers are mounted directly against the hull below the waterline with no intervening insulation or sound absorbing material.

If necessary, I can mount them on the outside of the transom, but I'd prefer to mount them on the inside of the hull if possible.

The owner's manual says that balsa wood was added to the hull on the "planing surface" and to the hull sides "where necessary". I'm wondering if anyone knows what this translated to and, specifically, where I might find a couple of spots roughly three inches in diameter which meet the above criteria.

I will do my best to determine if such spots exist through inspection, but I'm hoping someone in this group might already know the answer.

View the latest post 2024 launch season ???

Here we are again! Getting closer to launch season in the north. Looks like about 51 days for me. Will not need to worry about any rogue ice chunks this year. Have not had any ice, even shore ice, for at least the past month. Latest weather forcasts point to above normal temps for our area all Spring. How long before y'all launch? 8-) er
