I'm the proud new owner of my first ever boat a 2003 Carver Mariner 350 :confused: . I purchased this Mariner out of Oklahoma and it's currently on its way here to San Diego California and should arrive by this Friday. Hoping to learn as much as I can from you guys and maybe meeting some fellow Carver owners here around San Diego.

Anyways I know how much people like pictures so here are some of when it got loaded for the move.

Thanks waybomb for the warm welcome. I wouldn't exactly call it paradise you know, sometimes we have to endure weather below 70° :blush:

Can't this week go by faster? Is it Friday yet?

WOW, Welcome aboard. That is quite the first boat. My first boat was a 12' Fiberform powered by a 5 HP Firestone outboard motor. Bought it in June of 1965. Boat/Motor/Trailer for $120.00. Of course I was only 15 years old at the time. You will always remember your first boat.

Bought my 10th and probably last boat last august my 1981 Carver 3007 Aft Cabin.

Best of luck with your new boat. Hope you have a great season.

Well I really appreciate that Rick, to tell you the truth it's a bit intimidating to get this big a boat especially since I have never had one before. I've been talking with a captain at the marina where we want to keep the boat so that he will give me some instruction on how to operate it. You where very young when you got into boating, you must really love it if you are on your 10th boat.

Yep, I absolutely love boating. I do hope that you will utilize the captains services. Hopefully he can take you out on your boat and you can observe then he lets you take the helm and gives out helpful tips and pointers. You have a gorgeous boat. I hope you and your family have many happy, wonderful and safe boating adventures.

I along with many others here look forward to your sea stories as you use your boat.

Congrats! We spent six years in San Diego in the mid-late 80's and we bought our first boat there. San Diego is as close as you can get to paradise in the states :usa:

@ Viper
No it can't, but it's finally here. Still early and I haven't heard from the shipper yet, hopefully soon. Thanks bud!

@ Fraser
I've read some of your other posts and have learned quite a bit, thank you for contributing your knowledge. You certainly have a beautiful boat :-D

@ Rick
I already spoke to a Captain yesterday and he is the one that will help me take the boat from the boatyard down to the marina. He will be giving me some instruction on the weekends also :captain2: Thanks for the advice and the well-wishes.

@ CYO
Thank you! What made you leave San Diego? I've lived in other places/countries but I always come back here, I just love the weather. For boating it seems perfect, I have read about all the things people have to do to winterize their boats and then they can't use them for some time. Glad we don't have to go through that here.
