The Documentation Repository topic

Postby Phrancus » February 3rd, 2023, 12:01 pm

Hi All,

Since the sinking of the Carver Yachts website I've provided people with the salvaged manuals, spec sheets and such via this topic and PM's.

At this moment I am setting up the website for all to search, select and download the files.

During building and setting up you can keep a keen eye through this link.

As soon as the files can be selected and downloaded in a more simple way than right now, the site will look nice and have the full list available.

To keep you up to date I opened this topic. To answer a few preliminary questions:

The files will be available for free. I will offer a way to donate to cover cost of hosting. I do not want to bother with annoying advertising to do so. Any funds above the actual cost go to the forum.

The files are available through a webshop system and not a big dump to pick and download because I prefer to have the owners get the files they need for free and not have someone pull them all for selling for a profit on some obscure website.

There will be a login, available through the forum. Just to keep the materials for the right people as mentioned above.

Looks and feel is not ready yet, that's the last thing to do. For the moment it's quite rudimentary and subject to daily changes. That's because I'm learning, tweaking, changing, trying, testing and sometimes I do other things than the site too. Like looking for a boat :confused:

So feel free to have a look, no need to comment on it too much yet as it's a work in progress. It's ok to comment but don't expect me to fix things right away for now. For example only some files can be downloaded right now, others are emtpy. I'm working on skipping some of the steps during the checkout process, after that I'll get back to the actual files (I know what needs to be done there but don't need that for the part I'm working on right now).

I would like to point to this topic though: request topic for some material for the looks of the site later on.

I will announce it here when the site is operational.

Cheers,

Frank

Thanks in advance for your hard work. I need manuals for my new-to-me '92 aft cabin 3307. Looking forward to your lists.

Page 7
this one: 3307-carver_92-owners-manual-pdf

try the download via the 'purchase' button, then to the cart and checkout. Fill in some jibberish and on the next page you can right-click the file to download or click to view.

Note that you can 'purchase'multiple files before you 'checkout', saves some time.

I'll see if I can skip some of those steps. And a better search function so it searches all files rather than just the page in view.

Also the download cart stopped working on the homeport page.

Enough to do, for now it is what it is.

Nevertheless: theres an old owners manual for you.

Holy Cow!!!! I followed your instructions, and VOILA!! There was my owner's manual PDF!

I'll be greedy and ask for one more miracle: The service manual for this boat, if available.

Thank you so much for your hard work here! We all owe you!

Good that you found it. everything I have should be there, no service manuals. Per item (engine, winch and so on) you can find some by the manufacturer or brand.

Thank for all your work, but Im having trouble. no matter how I try I always get a message saying your cart is empty. I tried through Purchase button and the free purchase button.

UPDATE december 2023:

As per beginning of 2024 the link carveryachts.eu is no longer valid to get to the repository. As I have received little to no donations to cover the cost, I cancelled renewal of the domains.

The documentation, however, is still available under my own domain: https://rentier.nl/carveryachts/ for as long as I keep that domain and don't need the space.

cheers,

Frank
