Hello, new to this group, so I thought I should fill in the app.
We just bought a 1989 Carver 28' Voyager. Still waiting to get it home.
This is a project boat for me, looking a two years till splash down. I will be pulling both engines, Trans/V Drives, most if the systems will be redone, and most of the interior (hope to get rid of the dinett set, and just have some arm chairs.
A larger swim platform and ladder (We both SCUBA) and a hard top over the back. I will also be adding a radar, so an arch or mast is in the works.
We curranty own a 1997 26' Excel, and most of our boating is at Lake Powell, Utah, or Lake Havasu in Arizona. This boat will be sold once we get the Carver up to speed.
The dream, is to get the Carver ready, and do some of the Great Loop, and also explore the NW around the San Juan Islands. Although this boat is not considered "trailerable" we will tow to around (with permits) and a very large truck..
If I had the money, I would probably live in the Bahamas year round. But that's the "other" dream. (my wife has not heard that one yet).
Hope to post photos if anyone is interested.
