Guess l thought there would be quite a few on here as they built a good number,anyway research shows the engines popular and think this would be a good coastal cruiser for 3 or 4 months a year. Looks like you could accommodate a nice crowd aboard the Carver.Do you spend 2 or 3 weeks at a time on her which is what we plan on doing. Thanks Again
My only point was there are not as many people that own Mainship 40s on here that own Ford F150s or Honda Accords. The 4LHA is an EXCELLENT engine. I just mentioned that as an FYI. Probably not much to worry about.

Yes, we do spend a lot of time aboard the Carver. It is an incredibly roomy and comfortable boat. About as good of a layout as you will find in a "35 foot boat".
