New Owner 5539 Carver "Californian" CPMY

Postby 4blade1 » April 5th, 2018, 5:40 pm

Hello Carver Owners:

My wife and I have owned our current 55' Californian for almost a year now and we love it so much that we moved out of our condo and onto the boat. This is by far the best IMO design for a motor yacht to date. We have the three state room three head model and it suits our family well when we are all together. I do have a lot of questions as I do most if not all of the maintenance myself and have several projects that I would like to get into.

Refinish the wood on the Cocpit rail - Done
Replace all house batteries, Inverter, and chargers - Done
Replace eisenglas on fly bridge - Done
Replace eisenglas in Sunroom aft -
New Radar
New Bottom paint
Replace Cutlass Bearings
Re balance Props
Service and Reseal Wing stabalizers
and the list will go on and on but these are priority but nothing is and emergency.

Does anyone know how many 5539's were built and if they were built in Costa Mesa, CA or at Carver in Polaski, WI? Not really important just curious.
