difference between montego 3257 & 3297??

Postby familytradition » June 25th, 2014, 12:41 am

I am new to all this...But i am not sure if we have a 3257 or 3297. Anyone know the difference? Also we need a few cosmetic updates to our 1987 & any help finding parts would be really appreciated. Need all vent screens, need trim pieces that are located on the wall as u enter the galley. Need new latch for same trim & door. Need window stripping for both port & starboard side windows. Need new track for galley door. Need to know approximately how much foam & material we need to put in new dining set seats & couch. And lastly, how big are both beds in the V bed & aft bed. The boat is several hrs away from us & we are headed down to work on it this weekend, but wanted to bring as many materials with is as we could or at least know where to get them. Finding Carver parts is seeming to be a challenge for a novice like me! Thanks in advance!

Wow! That's a lot of items you need. Firstly, your Montego is a 3257...the 3297 is a Mariner. They share hulls and fwd cabin/head area, but the rest are completely different. For any hatch parts, you can contact Bomar @ www.pompanette.com. For the parts for the cabin side windows (or windshield, for that matter) you can contact NA Taylor...not sure of their web address. The other parts are going to be harder to locate as they were either Carver made, or attained locally by Carver. The beds...not sure of the sizes, but you can go to the "service" tab on the Carver website and look-up spec sheets for your exact year and model that may give you that information.

I am pretty lucky because there are two boating surplus stores close to where I live and play business. One is Kendor's in Franklin Wisconsin and the other is Wolf's in Benton Harbor, MIchigan.

Start asking around and I'm sure you'll find a similar place near you. I can walk around in these places for an hour and find all sorts of "needed" stuff that you would never find if you were looking for it.

Ebay cab be a big freind as well. Most of what I bought to rehab out 3697 came from Ebay, and some form Kendor's and Wolf's.

Both are on ebay as well. I am not sure what Wolf's user id is, but Kendor is GreatLakesSkipper.
Thanks
