Carver 355

Postby Santego » January 28th, 2014, 11:49 pm

New to this site. Purchased a new to us 95 carver 355 last October. Still straightening out little minor things that showed up on survey and a few things that didn't show up,but so far we love the boat. I have come to the conclusion that surveyors often times have a routine and pencil whipping the inspection so factor in several thousand dollars to cover missed items.
Too bad it got cold right after purchasing and have not really had a chance to take her out much. She is winterized and waiting as of now. Look forward to learning and contributing.

Nice looking boat! I have that (to us) ugly green canvas too. Too bad it's in good shape and doesn't need replaced yet. The previous owner saw fit to paint the bottom red, so now we have a Christmas tree...with black and gold "garland"(stripes).

Good looking boat! I had the opposite with my surveyor. He is liked and well respected in the local area, even recommended by the broker, yet they still said "the problem with him is he finds EVERYTHING"! LOL

My last surveyor was also very thorough. Spent about 7 hours on the 36 Carver checking everything. Well worth the money spent.
Thanks
