Old Carver, New To Me

Postby TyingTheKnot » April 18th, 2016, 2:14 pm

Hi All,
Bought a 1984 Carver Convertible 3227 and LOVE it! Refurbished under 100 hour Crusader 270's on it. Need to do some upgrades and now glad I found this forum and hoping to glean lots of new info as I'm a new big boat owner.
Cheers,
David

I've always felt the 3227 had some of the best space utilization available. :down: I've had mine for quite a while now, with lots of updates and changes. Be happy to help with any advice or assistance I can! :-D

Hi everyone, new to the Carver group also. Picked up a beautiful 84 3227 Sept this year. I agree with you all, sexy body lines and very well laid out for a 32' boat.
Does anyone know where to source OEM parts if they still exist? Such as the interior swivel lights and a few other pieces that have aged?

You can check with Great Lakes Skipper, but you won't have much luck on an '84. Best place to check is Ebay if you are looking for originals. I would look at upgrading at any of the marine suppliers. They will all have stuff that will work. I find lots of stuff at Home Depot as well.
