Howdy,
New to the Forum
Just became a Carver 3607 owner
Piloted boats most of my life - largest was a twin screw 74' 96 ton tug. I got tired of piloting everybody else's boat - so I bought my own.

I will be asking lots of questions about sources for mostly cosmetic stuff for my yacht.

Welcome aboard!!

I also have an 83 3607, so I'll be very interested in seeing any pics of your boat or any modifications that you do or were done prior!!

Congrat on the new boat!

Welcome Skydancer! You are in the right place for solutions. When you have issue, it's usually a good idea to take a pic. Carver used different cosmetic techniques across several models & years, so answers may come from some of different models, or same model, different year. Where is she slipped? 8-) er

Welcome aboard.
Please don't hang a bunch of old tires over the gunwale as you would on a tug!
Thanks

Welcome Aboard. Nice looking boat. I have a smaller sister to your 3607. Mine is a 3007. Love the looks.
