Ok I see it didn't work. I type first then I selected the little picture which gave me the two imgs. Then I copied the second line down on photobucket that said direct. Then I placed it in between the imgs on the forum and pasted it.

Todd. You almost have it. Your first img tag with the brackets is correct as is the image line. To fix it put the same img tag at the end but with a / infront if the i of hy img.

So it is /img inside [ ] after the jpg.

If I was starting from scratch on the interior I would take out the salon wrap around couch and put in a flex steel free standing couch and recliner. I find ours uncomfortable.

Good luck with the project.

So far from what I can see it is just plug and play. I bought the boat fro the dealer who sold it new, well they are no longer the Carver dealer now. On one of my trips to the marina that the dealership owns I asked the owner if I could have all the imformational material on this boat and he said no problem. He didn't have alot left but one thing wa the wire identifier code for all the wires.

Odvar the 440 is in Portland on the Columbia if that is what you are asking. I see you are in WA and next summer we plan on putting in at Olympia and going north.

Somewhere I heard there was a 2002 available but I'm not sure if any were ever sold/built.
So yours is the last of the model I can't believe they didn't continue the line I really love the boats!
I'm sure when you complete yours you will love it as well.

I saw on yacht world a 2002 for sale. Only one, I can't believe there are more of them. I love our couch as it, I would change the shape of the bed to more rectangle, for the life of me I can't have any sheets that stay on the mattress for the night. New mattress is also on my list.
If you are replacing the stairs look at Odvar pictures, he did a great job on them, also the cabinet over the refrigerator.
Are you doing the work your self? Not sure if you said anything about that. On my boat I opened all the hatches available in the saloon, you should have 5 of them other than the one over the water tank and under the stairs.

Allen I am not doing the work myself, if I was there would end up being a picnic table sitting in the middle of the room. I did give the cabinet guy a challenge of giving me a large flat screen that pops up or folds down. I am all ready going with the stairs with cabinet idea.

Todd while you are at it, one of the things I did was open up the bottom of the double seat on the port side. Most Trojans I have seen have a small round opening. My dad opened it further and I can now fit 6 tool boxes in there, I will look for a picture and post.

I added a 12" X 24" hatch in the front of the bottom of the port side passenger helm seat. There is a ton of room under there, I store towels and cleaning products

Todd, looking forward to maybe meet you up in the San Juan next summer. Great boating up there. Heading up soon for the summer.
Foe sure cut in one or two hatches under the shotgun seat. Still looking for what kind of iron you got in the engine room. If you have QSMs I got a great forum for you to check out, I have been a member for 10 years.

Yes Odvar it has the QSMs 635 horse, my other boat is running a pair of cats with 350 each. It will be interesting to see the difference even though the Sea Ray only weights about 25,000lbs.

I finally got around to finishing the job of replacing both my throttle cables, and the one shift cable that I didn't do last summer. Took the boat out for a ride, and picked up 200+ RPM.

Any progress Todd? Wondering how far you have gotten with your overhaul.

One thing I thought of the last time I was on the boat and you may have an opportunity to address. I wish the master state room door was a pocket door. I am pretty sure it could be with a little mod to the adjoining wall next to the galley sink. Of course it would likely mean removing the make up counter and maybe mirror. Although I would consider that space better suited for the tele.

I have not had a chance to do anything yet this summer. I still have not had a haul to even clean the bottom. I am pretty sure by now I am getting close to needing new zincs too. I am shooting for the week of July 4th. Maybe things will level out for me a bit after that and I can actually enjoy summer and a few boat trips.

I agree with John, hard to get around that door. I was going to cut the door in half and make it a bifold but have not got there yet.
We still like the master head without the shower enclosed, just a curtain on a curved track in the ceiling. Feels more spacious.
Also think about putting sweeps on the shafts to eliminate shaft zincs that can slide down to the cutlass bearings as it did for me

Last year I had an oil line break it made a mess of my bilge I spent two days cleaning the center bilge and I thought I did a good job. This year I I found a huge mess again which I cleaned again and noticed that it must have floated back from the cabin bilge I sprayed lots of water and bilge cleaner in and vacuumed it dry from the engine room only to have it happen yet again next time I went out for a ride:( Yesterday I pulled my stairs and carpet and scrubbed the entire bilge from end to end big mess in the cabin bilge! I pumped everything in bottles there was still quite a bit of oil in there. After cleaning up what I could I then poured bilge cleaner in and floated the bilge blowing out all passages from end to end. I did this three times and then poured cleaner in and closed it up. I came to the boat this morning and it smelled fresh and clean a pleasant change! I didn't know there was an issue but there was a little bit of an smell I though it was waste but I just changed all the hoses as well. I'm very happy to have this behind me I hope this will be the last time I have to deal with this.

I had no idea that the engine room bilges and salon bilges connected. My salon bilge often has water in it but my center engine room one is always dry.

Edit: The space between the engine room and the area where I have my water tank under the stairs would also be connected then. I am wondering if that is a place where smell could come from. I don't have a waste smell but a smell none the less.

Odly at rest water seems to sit in the middle of the salon bilge on plane the water flows to the engine room bilge. My tanks lay out differently then you I have two 50 gallon waste tanks in The center line of the salon. I had a bit of oil under these tanks creating a smell now my boat smells like bilge cleaner I may have to wash this out as well. While it smells clean it is a strong smell.
I have not had time to install the pumps I bought to maintain a dry bilge I did however use one of them to clean up the mess I pumped any and all oil into bottels the little pump work great for this. I would like to install three of these pumps which I can manually turn on to get rid of any water that the bilge pumps can't reach. I have the parts what I need is time.

So I went to do my short haul today and as intended checked my rudder bolts. There are four on each rudder. While it appeared that one had the head sheared off (the one in the photo) all but two bolts were in decent condition. Two others the heads twisted off as soon as I put the wrenches to them. The other three came out but where at various stages of deterioration. So the decision was made to go ahead and replace all with new stainless bolts and nylocs. Probably will be out over the weekend so the 4200 can set up good before splashing. Seriously considered leaving blocked up for the season. :(

I have couple days to think about it Dave. And if that storm winds up hitting here by the weekend it will be next week. Over the next couple months I have several weekends where I have other things planned. Then I am in CA for half of October. I have already resigned myself to not doing bottom paint this season, even though I really need it. I guess we will see.

You either pay now or you pay later! You will be painting the bottom before you sell the boat it's not going to go bad out of the water I would just paint it. A clean bottom will make it easier to sell!

That is my debate Dave. Just fix this and put it back in and try to enjoy a few months of using it... or... Leave it out and start now on the winter projects list that I wanted to do last Mar/Apr? Things like painting the bottom, replacing shaft seals, painting the arch, rebed the windshield...... Especially considering I may not be here come winter and spring next year to do those things myself.

Allen - You have to take the URL part off of your photos. It makes it impossible to view on an Ipad.
