Thanks, we have a little Key West attitude in Chicago....

The bike rack is an invention from a fellow boater in our harbor. It works great - the bikes are stored over the water, then spins to get at them. Here's the link:

With boats like the Trojan and Montego series, I don't understand why Carver got out of the Express Cruiser market. There are many of us out there that now have to rely on good used product. Sure... They don't say Sea Ray on the side...but in my opinion, that's a good thing.

Thanks Walter and Kenny.

My wife and I said that same thing. Why did they stop making this model. I guess the Marquis has now taken that spot. The three major items we love are the 3 staterooms, the lazarrette/garage, and the 15' beam.

Kenny,
We loved our 1988 3257 because of the room it provided. I would suggest if you are looking at one make sure you have 454's and a generator. You can run at 27-28 miles an hour all day long and only turn 3150-3250 on the rpms.


Dave,
That was last years picture when we were hauling out. Post your pictures, that's why the thread is there.

Thanks Dave...I have one in mind..454's but no genny...room to add it and it's already wired for it. The deal is a sweet one, but I have to wait to see if a prior prospect "wins". If I do by chance get it, it will cost me less than my 2757, and that is a good thing!

So...the deal is over on the 3257 Montego...turns out it was run REALLY hard and broke stringers in places where you can't get to them to repair. AND, the side decks are soft (rotten) from mid cockpit all the way up past the windshield on both sides. PLUS, there's ALOT of bad dock rash on the port side...est. of $5000 to repair just the rash...sooo not worth it as there are plenty of nice ones out there for sale.

Thanks Kenny!

I had the blue painted on and had the whole boat buffed and waxed. I'm in the middle of replacing the dash in a grey carbon fiber with white engraved lettering and new teleflex gauges. Did you notice the rear fender hatch covers? Had them made locally by a guy that made them for Carver back in the day. Removed the bad windscreen and installed s.s. hand rail. Inside she has the light blue colors with new white carpet. New drapes and tinted the glass. I didn't want to trust a one way valve, so the head has it's own fresh water tank and tank montiors on every tank. I also increased the size of the drain pipe and sump to the shower. No more standing smelly water. Central vac and new frig. to keep the admiral happy. (as you can see, she likes to drive)

Welcome aboard, John.

The red x instead of pictures indicates that the pics cannot be found ... probably stored on your computer. In order to post them, you need to put them on a photo service like photobucket. Then you copy the URL for the image into your post. the image URL will be listed under the photo in your photobucket album.

It will look like this in the text of your post:
"[xMG]http://i45.photobucket.com/albums/f81/misterb-3607/my%203607/c57ffee5.jpg[/xMG]" (without the quotes, and with IMG instead of xMG at the beginning & end)but will display the image.

It looks like after the boat being repaired for almost 8 months. It is only a couple weeks until (I think) it will be done.New port and a new name and with all the money should be a new boat.

Great shots all.

Here's our last Carver, sold to an RO who's disappeared from the board. One shot was in Cape Coral in a brand spanking new marina dry racked and the other was at the infamous BE Watch Hill weekend, 2004 perhaps? Admiral Lorna in the pass through.

Pay no attention to the Peter Max custom bottom paint....

I can see the entire boat from the helm of this center console, express bridge. This is my all-time favorite. It's no wonder Carver made this model for over 16 years.

Well I am a new Carver owner here.

Since the 1st of the year I have sold my 34 Silverton, pictured below tied to the new Carver, then owned a small runabout for all of a month, then purchased my first Carver.

I am VERY pleased with this boat.

'95 280 Express Hardtop with a 454 b3 package. I am very pleased with it thus far.

I have not had it in any real big water yet, but hope to run up into Lake Huron after this month ends.

I have owned many boats, and I REALLY like this one a lot!
