Just purchased 1995 Carver 325 AFT

Postby porbe » July 7th, 2014, 2:59 pm

After many years of boating with cuddies and small crusiers my wife and I just upgraded from a 1989 Chaparral Signature 23 to a 1995 Carver 325 AFT. We're so excited to have a boat we can be comfortable on for more than a day. We boat on Lake Lanier in Georgia. Spent the July 4th weekend at Sunset Cover there.

The boat was very well taken care of and has 2 new Crusader 350s with all new fixings (block, carbs, exhaust, shafts, etc...) that are still under warranty from a local marina, main AC replaced last year, fridge replaced last year, and various other smaller things replaced. The engines and gen run like a top! I'll send pics once I get some good ones.

I like to work on boats so I already have a number of projects in mind. As always, money and time will dictate if and when I actually do them.

Projects:
- Install inverter and house batteries
- Add Aft Deck Rail Skirts (is that what they are called?)
- Add Aft Deck Hardtop or Bimini
- Add Spreader Light
- Replace and add speakers, amp, etc...
- Install underwater lights
- Repaint bottom (1 to 2 years)
- Install misc. LED exterior lighting
- Install Windlass

Hi and congrats. My fridge is dead, what does your boat have as a replacement for the original?
Many thanks.

It's a Norcold DE0041R. If not mistaken it was replaced last year by the previous owner.
