View the latest post Potable water ending up in fore and aft bilge

Filled potable water tank for first time this season after spring launch and the water is ending up in the fore and aft bilge. Is there a valve that I am neglecting that may have been opened or closed during last winterization? 1986 3607

Icemaker stopped making Ice it is a Raritan and working with tech support I now need to remove icemaker from cabinet to continue service diagnostics. I cannot figure out how to remove the unit. It looks like screwed to ss frame. I think they built the boat around the icemaker.

When opening the small round access port forward of the unit I see screws but cannot get to them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

View the latest post Attachment(s) 2005 Marner Stern Access Doors

Hello Folks,

Last week I was in a hurry to get to a bridge opening and unfortunately left the dock whist still plugged in. I broke the starboard access door to the power hookup. UGH!
The door is made out of Carver 'white' lucite. (we know it's an off-white)
I visited two businesses today and one can manufacture a unit in standard white. The second offered the same service with an additional option of a 'seafoam starboard', which leaned beige. The latter material does not have a 'shiny' surface and will not match the finish of the fiberglass.
I am thinking that if I can find a source for the lucite, I would purchase it and then bring it to the business to fabricate.
As we well know, I cannot contact the Carver folks for information on the source for part and am wondering if anyone on the site has been in a similar situation and how you went about the fix.

View the latest post macerator power

Hello, all.
I'm having an issue with power to my aft cabin head macerator and waste tank level display. I'm thinking they are both on the same circuit, as they both cut out at the same time. Additional to the breaker in the power control box, is there anywhere else to check? I don't recall Carver using fuses, after the breakers.

View the latest post Attachment(s) What is it?

We had a Sealand 8600 with Bidet toilet in our aft cabin head. While tightening the connections we snapped the plastic check valves. This head is a discontinued model! We looked into getting replacement parts and decided to purchase a new head. Yesterday, we were at the boat and taking measurements, adding some shut off valves and other things. We have always known that this part was in the boat and thought it was a part of the head. Taking a closer look at it, we have no idea what it is or what purpose it serves, so before we haul it out, we thought we would ask here. It is attached to the water lines. Has an input line but no output. There are no identifying marks on it anywhere. Sorry the photos are all rotated 90 degrees clockwise. This is on a 3607.

View the latest post Attachment(s) Anyone know 356 Interior Vinyl Brand/Color?

Hello All,

Had a loose fitting on my bridge hydraulic steering system of my 2001 3565 which caused fluid to leak down onto the vinyl interior salon headliner. Bummer! Does anyone know what manufacturer/color the vinyl is in this photo to save me lots of time trying to find something that might be a match? Any help pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated!
