          To Carver Riviera:We just put a deposit down on a 1982 Carver Mariner. I read the previous posts about what to look for but is there anything else you can add. We are getting it surveyed in March. By the way our Marina is in Edgewater, MD also. Maybe we'll see you out there some time.

            Re: Carver owners....

            Sorry, I just noticed this message. Most of the issues we have encountered are just age issues (lost a starter motor and one bilge pump quit working) or that we want to improve the boat. We had the luch of having cockpit upholstery that was one-week old when we first saw the boat, but I have a friend with a 1985 Montego that needs now to replace his.One thing to watch is leakage around the ports. Not a hard fix (just remove all the bolts, recaulk, and rebolt), but it is somewhat time consuming and it is just nice to know if it needs to be done. I need to do the 6 windows in my rear cabin before we splash in April since most of them leak a little bit. I assume that the Mariner's might have similar issues.BTW, we are at Little Island Marina in Ramsey Lake.

              Thanks for the response. I will defineately keep these items on my watch list. We will be going to survey the boat this Friday. I hope most things will be in good shape. It is only natural that there will be a few issues I think. On a visual inspection of the windows they showed no signs of leakage.I saw a picture of your type of boat, sure is a beauty. Well anyway thanks for your input. We are out of South River Marina.

                          Mrcorless:There is a previous post about that. Read the post from 28 Riviera. I am sure they could give you some pointers on doing it.
