Hi all.

I've been reading through all of your threads and wanted to thank you all for the great information - it helped me to decide on my purchase. I just acquired a 2000 Carver Trojan 440 Express with a hardtop - currently located in Clearwater, FL.

While the previous owner took extremely good care of it, I do have a few projects planned in the coming year including some teak on the swim platform and cockpit. I look forward to any ideas and suggestions and will of course share my progress with any projects I tackle.

Welcome, you will love the 440! We have four in our marina.

I would love to see pix of the hardtop.

Welcome LOL I think I have a couple of pictures of your boat I saw it last year when I visited the area. We took a short boat ride/tour and passed your boat looked very clean from a distance!

Is this the boat???

That's it! It's still in the same place right now - heading to Clearwater in a couple of weeks to move it. It is very clean and in amazing shape. The previous owner put a lot of work into it and it shows. I'm already set to replace the tables (both cockpit and cabin) with wood tops. Also adding a BBQ - not quite sure where to mount it yet. Does anyone have any ideas?

I haven't mounted my BBQ I just keep it near the helm on the passenger side then move to swim platform when I use it. It side on the upper platform and I stand on the lower one.
One of the others mounted his on a pole to the lower platform and another found an angle pole mount and installed it to the transom near the power cord it looks good if I was going to mount mine I would try to do something like this. You can try to reach out to him "Starry Night".
As Hogan mentioned above there are 4 of us all on the same dock all different years all different but the same.

Alright, first project is done. I had the couch re-upholstered and changed the table top to a wooden one made by a New England artist

It's far enough away and heat rises - no heat issue. I did turn it around so I face the crowd sitting on the boat while I BBQ

Looks great! I would like to mount my BBQ in the same spot. Could you share some pics showing the mounting?
Thank you!
