New Carver Owners

Postby Steamboat Willie » June 8th, 2013, 10:42 am

My wife and I have owned sail and power boats most of our lives. We just purchased a 1997 Carver 325 Aft Cabin. This is our first "big" boat and we are really excited. Last week I (accompanied by a good friend who is an experienced Captain) brought the boat from it's former home in Cape Coral, FL to it's new home in New Smyrna Beach, FL. The trip across the state via the Okeechobee Waterway was interesting and enjoyable. We live in New Smyrna Beach, and plan to cruise the ICW to our hearts content during the coming months. I am looking forward to learning more about these boats and how to take care of them on this forum.

Hello and welcome. Of course, we would like pix of the boat and your cruising area!

Any projects planned for the boat?
Thanks

No pics yet, but will have some shortly. We are getting new bottom paint and taking care of some maintenance items that had been neglected on the boat, so it is now on the hard and should be back in the water in about a week. No immediate projects planned beyond that.
