I have seen the ones on ebay and some companies online that have a lot of decals for boats but have not found any that look like the originals and are raise lettering.

Allen I just saw your post and it is hard to believe that just the cross piece that I see sitting on you bow is what you are talking about. I cant believe two guys can't pick that up. I will be finding out myself because we are building stainless steel hinges there so that when I tow the boat I can just flip it over so that I can haul it.

Todd Starry Night's arch is hinged, he doesn't have the wings but it was done so it can be towed.

As for the decals I just sent an email to the company that has them listed on Ebay they say they would custom make them for a price so I will find out the price. If I can't get them in raised letters I will settle for flat as long as the design is right.

I have this decal, I think I'll just have them recreated, I see plenty of places on the web that specialize in that and it looks like they know what they are doing.

P.S. I'll let you know in short order exactly what these arch components weigh. I'm diving into the arch repaint project the weekend of the 18th.

Great Lakes Skipper has some Carver/Trojan decals

http://greatlakesskipper.com/decals-pinstriping/carver-boat-decals

I replaced the "Trojan" on the stern with regular vinyl letters, highlighted with gold. I'm going to do the same with the name on the arch.

I sent Great Lakes an email with pictures of my current decals and they said they have nothing like it and couldn't source it for me. I guess they don't actually make them themselves. The site I post before makes them and is willing to try to reproduce what I have but I may be willing to change to the newer style but I would loose the "By Carver" I like that mine doesn't say that now.

John I saw an old thread from 2011 where you were asking about the cable master system and the 125V/250V plug. Mine has the same. Have you guys found that most docks have 125V/250V outlets? I would think that 30A 125V and 50A 125V is more common. I hope this isn't a problem in this area. I've never really paid attention since our last boat was 30A.

You can use a splitter and convert it to two 30s. In the delta with the breeze at night you probably don't need air much so you could also use an adaptor to one 30 and not run the air. I even had an adaptor to take it to a 110v 20a circuit just to run the battery charger where it is now.

I'm a little confused...I understand splitting it to two 30's, I scored a like-new Marinco reverse-y adapter today that does exactly that. But I am confused on how I can convert it to a single 125V source such as a 30A or a 20A. I thought this thing is looking for 250V at the boat? How does it know what to do with 125V?

So here is the big question how do you feed one leg? A smart Y adapter will only work with two out of phase 30 amp circuits. This winter I made an adapter to feed my 50/250 using one 15 amp plug I did this simply so I could run my charge from an extension cord while on the hard. It worked great!
I launched the boat today and found a leek in my fresh water pump I capped the line so that I can at least use the city water hookup without leaking and ordered a new 5 GPM pump I never thought the old pump was adequate.

Have not check in for a while. Interesting, decals , I removed all the BIG decals when I got the boat some 13 years ago. Been fun since when people ask me is this a custom? I felt the logos were too loud.
About water in the bilge, had the same frustrating problem a few years ago. Could not figure out where the water came from. Turned out it was from where the rudder sleve comes thru the hull, behind the panel in the garage. The leake only showed up under way or when loaded heavy. Sealing the garage I have been happy with door weather stripping, the kind that come in sticks and slide into a grove on the door frame. I screw that to the bottom of of the garage lid. Keeps the water out under way. Arch, mine is a one unit design, track on top for the front canvas and track under in the back, no leak. As you may have seen before I only have one bow in the front and it is splitt in the middle so I can tuck it into the garage. I don't like like bows and canvas on an express its a sun boat, and when I need to cover up it only takes a few minutes .

Has anyone come up with a solution for a cockpit table? Mine didn't come with the original, which I don't really care for anyways. What I'd love to have is another hi/low table just like in the salon but I'm sure that finding another one of those would be pretty much impossible.

Hey John I have the same problem and I priced one of those hi-lo table stands and was quite surprised on the price. Just starting to put the new exterior seating in.


Also on another note my neighbor just had his boat done in the plastic teak and saw it for the first time yesterday. I have real teak on the swim plat form and may bring it up to the entry door.


Also how did the job go on your arch...I think you said you were doing it this weekend. I am qurious on what that cross bar weighed.

I sold my saloon table, I made one my self but it is not great. For the cockpit I used the adjustable base and a round table top my dad made. Now keep playing around with a new saloon table.
Todd I love the look of the real teak on the platform, What do you have in the cockpit?

I had taken mine out and stored it at the house until we put it up for storage. Took up to much space in the Salon for me. I had a footstool I replaced it with the opened up for storage. Most of the time we ate in the cockpit anyway. When we didn't we had a couple of folding tables to use. Much more space that way. If my boat was here I would let you have it. I would not use it in the cockpit though. It just weighs to dang much.

I just had a new table made for my salon I used the original base, I'm very happy with how it came out! When I bought the boat it didn't come with a cockpit table which is a must have in my book. I spent a lot of time finding/buying the base for a table I ended up buying a Taco base for over $500 and then a $50 top that I never really liked, then last year I had a friend replace the table on his SeaRay and he gave me his old table top which I love, it is perfect for the space.

I just want to find another one of the bases, I'm a big fan of folding table tops, they just make sense to me in confined spaces. Todd, I didn't start on the radar arch yet...my boat didn't get finished at the yard, SURPRISE, I probably won't get it back until next week.

Snow is all gone in fact the weather last weekend was summer like! I have been to the boat everyday for the last week finishing projects, I in the home stretch now. The last repair on my list is the wipers I apparently install blades that where too large and had too much resistance for the motors and burned out both of the wipers I need to replace them both before I take any trips this season. I want to make sure I get and best wiper motors to handle the larger blades has anyone else replace theirs yet? I would love some input if you did.

Thanks John, I will definitely be taking you up on your offer. I just need to get her home on my dock so I can figure out what I want to do and what questions go along with those things! On another note, what are your boating plans this season, with your boat being on the other side of the country? You live right by a thousand miles of waterways, can't let those go to waste! Also, did you get my message about checking out a back-haul with Moger out of SoCal?

Has anyone had to replace any breaker in the main panel if so do you know what they are it looks like I need to order two. I replaced my microwave last year and now it blows the breaker if I run for any length of time. Today I replaced my fresh water pump with a 5 GPM instead of the 3 GPM and it apparently draws more power and it too blows the breaker. I need to step up the breakers in each of these circuits.

Yes we just veneered over the top and stain. As you can see that there are different colors or shades at the moment because some have no coats while others may have a couple or more. When finished I will post pictures of the finished product.

While doing this refit we went with all new lighting and that was an expense that surprised me. So far I bought some led that flush mount into the ceiling. Kind of cool that you can control how bright they are by turning them on and they gradually get brighter and when it reaches the desired lighting you turn the light switch off and then right back on and it stays at that brightness. So far there are 28 of them on the boat...........$80 each. Still have to put in all the rope lighting.

How Can you flip the mattress? don't your mattress curve on the sides? mine have an angle the bottom.
When I surveyed another Trojan and opened this little hatch i found a swimming pool there was so much water there coming from the anchor room. Lots of wood debris as well.

New bottom paint getting ready to make the trip to the lake and found out the our favorite spot won't have any water this year. No snow in the hills and not enough rain. Looks like we will explore the Columbia this summer, maybe head up to Idaho by way of the river. Need to put some hours on the old girl to see if she has any problems. Then next year will head up to the San Juan's to visit with Odvar.

Ok I feel like a real chatty catty now but a while back I asked anyone if they knew how to be notified if someone was replying or talking on this forum and no one had any answers. I was just looking on some of the other forums for BoaterEd and they have a subscribe to topic on their forums. Why do they... I would assume the subscribe to topic is what I was asking about.

$2500 bucks?? Seriously?? I'd ship to Oregon to get mine done for that!! Wow!

I can't find a subscribe button and don't understand why not.

I finally brought her home today. We kicked it up on the river and took it slow in the channels. It was my first time really driving her. Even though it was nice and easy, just the rush of the first voyage really tired me out today. And now that I've spent a few hours really checking her out, I'm finding so many things I don't understand yet. I'm gonna have a lot of questions!

First question would be, what are those of you with 450C's getting for speed at around 2100rpm?

That's a question for your GPS

As for $2500 I paid twice that for mine.

At 2100, my 450's are getting me about 21 MPH

Allen, my matress is the same as yours. You can still flip it upside down. I thought it might help a bit as it was kind of lumpy. That did not help much so I added 3" memory foam to it.

All that wood you found was probably parts of the shelf for the anchor roller.
