'79 Voyager 28ft

Postby jsinton » August 11th, 2018, 11:36 pm

Hi all! Nice web site.
I have a 1979 Carver Voyager 28 that I fell into on a whim. Little is know of the ancient history of this boat, however this boat was owned by a series of fellows named "Bob". It was only fitting that I, a "Bob", would wind-up by this boat. I found it in a boat yard in Crystal River, Fl. She was refit about 8 years ago with an old BMW Marine Diesel of unknown hours, a D150 rated at 134 hp. It runs, but it's no speed demon.
In Crystal River, you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a herd of manatee. Today, this boat sits on the hook in King's Bay. She's my private recreation condo on the water with constantly changing 360 degree views. I hang out, throw the dive flag off the back, and swim with the manatees. During scallop season, I motor the beast out to the scallop beds in the Gulf of Mexico, throw out the hook, and snorkel for scallops. Really cool cooking fresh scallops and diving for more.
Thanks for reading. Peace.
