So looks like my post didn't take.

I have recently "jumped ship" so to speak from the Carver Owners group to the Silverton. Sold my 31 Carver Mid Cabin Express last year and jumped right back in with a 37 1984 Silverton Convertible.

Both motors were pulled to have fuel tanks pulled and refurbished along with entire fuel system (including carbs).

All new wet exhaust, risers and even manifolds on both motors. Cleaned and painted when pulled. Bilge is super clean.

During seatrial after fuel replaced, owner ran aground and had to pull boat to have shafts struts and all the fun goodies that go along with it replaced.......then....found another boat so decided a good time to sell. This was his dads boat (original owner). I finally think I locked onto my "forever boat".

Now for the cringe question.....and I'm a multi "old boat" owner so I kinda know my way around a bilge, what's the "everyone knows" issues about this model?

I love the year, the layout, the power and almost everything about this boat but want to be prepared.

You will love the 37' Convertible. I have a 1986 34' Convertible and it is a good solid boat. I am also a member of the Silverton Owner's Club which is another great group of people to share ideas with people who have your exact boat. Enjoy, spring is coming soon.

Congrats on new ride. After 20 years of Carver ownership I now own Monterey 298ss. Hard to get used to but dig in, you will figure out the Silverton systems. You're model is a nice layout. If it's the one with side exhaust, they usually get spider cracks around the through hull. Love the look of Silvertons but always feel less stable than similar size Carver to me. Good luck!

I've got a 34C, same year. Had it since 2004 and its a keeper. Love the teak trim in the cabin!
The deck is cored so watch any attachment points for potential moisture. Also, the panels adjacent to the sliding door and the 'dreaded triangles' along each side of the cockpit can wick water if not sealed at the bottom. Not sure about the 37 but my 34 had a non-accessible bilge area directly under the steps to the galley. I cut in an access point to keep it clean and dry.
Good luck with your new/ old ride!

What type of mufflers do you have on your 37?

Just asking because the boat came with galvanized boxes that corrode and could possible sink the boat or fill the boat with CO.

I found a replacement muffler that was not made of metal.

Not so many owners around here, I think; haven't seen many brand-related posts over the last few years. Many are in the owner's club...

Have to disagree on the Silverton ride. I used to own a Carver 356, which I miss still very much, but it's ride through steep breaking 4 plus foot waves was not as good as my Silverton. Similar length, but the extra beam and hull shape make it handle better in big water from what I have experienced. I believe it is the same hull at the 37 convertible.
Mine has those galvonized muffler boxes, I better take a good look at them this spring.
Good luck with your Silverton dwarren.

Here is a link to Silverton mufflers.

The ones I bought were the bottom 2 black ones. 2x4" in, 1x5" out.
