Greetings from the Great White North!

Postby LAZ » May 16th, 2018, 1:30 pm

Hi y'all,

My name is Steve from Vancouver BC. If you ever get up this way, please look me up. I'll teach you how not to fish, and I make a helluva Margarita!

I am a brand new member and looking forward to getting to know some of you folks and benefitting from your collective wisdom. To that end, following is my first plea for help!

I am the proud owner of a 1981 3077 Carver aft Cabin. My windlass is shot, in terms of properly raising and lowering the anchor. My mechanic says I need a new "clutch cone", whatever the heck that is. The problem now is we cannot figure out the windlass manufacturer (can't find on windlass or anywhere in my boat literature) and thus no part number. Can any of you wonderful people provide any insights, and/or direct me to the "proper" forum where I would seek assistance on this?

Thanks in advance to anyone who responds and can help me get started!

Welcome aboard. I am north of Gosnold and love Tequila but doubt I will ever make it to BC. Will give advice where needed. Enjoy your new vessel.

Hi, Welcome Aboard. I did get your message. Looks like you figured out how to post here. This is the right place to be for anything Carver.

Question on your boat is it a 3007. Carver made the 3007 for two model years 1981 and 1982. There are a couple of 81 3007's in my area. One in my marina and one across the canal in another marina.

Anyway, hope you have lots of great adventures aboard yours. We love pics. So. post away.

I said it was an 86 3077 initially, but after further review, it appears it is in fact an 81 3007, and looks basically exactly like your picture, although not as white. I will take pics of the windlass this weekend and post. Hopefully someone will recognise it. Thanks to all for your the welcoming and helpful posts!

Cheers,

Steve

Hi Gang,

Here are the pics of my windlass that several of you suggested I post. From these can anyone tell me who the manufacturer is, and where I might buy a clutch cone for it? Thanks in advance for any response/guidance.

Cheers.

Stevr
