I can't tell what size that is, but you might want to check out this thread, by a member parting out a Santa Cruz:

There was also someone on CL just a couple months ago, I believe in western MI that was parting one out.

Thanks. I probably will be customizing a lot of the repairs and updating. Things like the little vanity lights will be replaced with LED lights. Some of the interior teak will be replaced with new teak. I envision a large amount of paint and a whole lot of sweat for this project.

I will probably end up customizing much of what needs replacing/fixing. It will look like a Carver, but probably have some upgrades like LED lights instead of the small bulb lights for the vanity lights-- just one example. The interior is surprisingly good, it's the outside which will need a lot of work. Thanks for the good luck wishes!

Hi there, I’ve asked this question on a different topic, but I can’t figure out how to download a picture of our Carver into my profile? Can anyone explain how to do this to a computer dinosaur?
Thanks for any help!
