Finally Took The Plunge

Postby Kendaukcat » June 7th, 2018, 7:18 am

Hello Carver Crew!

After planning, working our tails off, and more planning...my wife and I finally purchased a 405 Aft Cabin.

We absolutely love her, but are freaking out a little bit as well. Our previous boat was a 22 foot pontoon.

We are planning on living aboard eventually...just need to sell the house.

I am sure I will be here bothering the heck out of you guys with Newbie questions\concerns. Your patience is appreciated in advance.

Thanks,

Ken

Welcome and for sure you are at the right place to get problems solved. Eventually you will be solving problems for other also as the year go by and you get to know your boat. Hopefully there is not to much that needs to be addressed. :captain2:

Thank You!

We are going to gain our sea legs on the Ohio River...and then plan to head down to Marathon, FL in the fall.
