Newbie 2557 Carver Montego

Postby AussieYank » May 16th, 2015, 3:48 pm

G'day all,
Just bought our second Carver Montego, this one is a little more manageable for us thank our first (32'Montego) We love Carvers, even though we're not extremely experienced boaters.
We had the first one for about 5 years but didn't get out much due to engine issues, but we spent many weekends tied to the dock... We traded out of her into a 24' Maxum which we owned for 3 years, this was a much easier boat to handle being inexperienced, it was the boat that actually made us boaters, since we zipped around the bay and out into the coastal waters almost every weekend, we built our confidence with it.
Unfortunately it took on water at the dock and the insurance company totaled her.
We just sea trialled our new used Carver and we love her, same solid Carver construction and layout, we're looking forward to many hours out on the water, down in San Diego's gorgeous Quivera Bay.

Welcome! We spent a few years at Campland on the Bay back in the mid-late 80's. Congrats on your new Montego!

I have the same boat. Do you have the twin 3.7 liters.
I love the boat myself.
