74 Carver Monterey

Post by jblack1036 » Mon Apr 30, 2018 4:41 pm

It's been awhile since I've posted but there is always good information to read on here.
The last time a made a post it was about a 74 Carver I picked up and the plan to bring it back to life. Well, here it is...What do you think. I was planning to flip it but now I'm kind of attached to it.

Paul, She is a 2885 she measures 31' from swim platform to bow and 10.5 wide with twin 302's. Never piloted twins so this year will be a big learning curve from the single screw. Can't wait to try her out..

The slope of the single-to-twin learning curve is negative. Way easier than a single, unless your twin becomes a single, then it is much worse.
I needed a less expensive hobby, so I bought a boat!
