Been doing mostly things behind the scenes like rewiring and plumbing. Miles of wiring removed that wasn't doing anything. Relocating things to suit me better and make it easier to winterize. Been mostly enjoying her though instead of working at it all the time. Have a big wish list but one thing at a time, I'm in no hurry and we're enjoying her the way she is anyway.

That's what it's all about, enjoyment. I've got things I need to address on my Carver too. I will get to them as time and $$ allow.

New Bimini top and Eisenglass for the front but I am going to need to purchase the rear enclosure. I am not sure it has ever had a rear enclosure on the back as I dont find any snaps/rivets.

it may have had one . i dont think there is any "go to" person or company, at least i havent seen anyone post such . so probably best bet for a local canvas guy to take a look. the rear enclosure like mine could have been installed with a slide track on the ceiling and if you have the plastic surrounds and not fiberglass. the bottom of the eisenglass panel would have been attached by using loops that would have snapped around the stainless railing above the plastic surround of the aft deck and a flap to cover the top of the plastic panel. this keeps anything from being attached to the aft deck plastic surround panels that could cause a stress crack and break them. ( a very bad thing) so you may not see any snaps or rivets. except on the outside of the support column by the back of the wing doors.
