:captain2: I have been boating since I was 5 or 7 years old, mostly sailboats, then small powerboats, larger sailboats, now larger motor yachts...Just sold me Carver 300 aft, took a trip to Chattanooga to get my new to me 1999 Carver 356 MY Aft and rode it down the Tennessee River through Alabama, back up to Kentucky and then hit the Cumberland to Nashville to my final destination on Old Hickory Lake (Cumberland River) at Blue Turtle Bay Marina. What a great trip and my Carver was as smooth as can be. Everything works great, but I will be cleaning the strainers, vents, checking Hoses, checking Bilge Pumps, looking at Aux Fuel Tank. Any other suggestions that I should be looking at or changing? Any assistance is always welcomed and very much appreciated!!! :usa:

Welcome aboard.

If you have no record of when they were last replaced, replace all the impellers, check the condition of your fluids, belts, etc. The list can be lengthy but focus on the important/safety systems first.
