Smile New Owner

Hi out there! We recently bought a 3300 SCR MAXUM Cruiser. Our user manual is one we were able to find on-line but it is vague in various areas.

We would like to know where the breaker for the windlass is located and we are not really sure where all the seacocks in the bilge are located.

It has a Westerbeke generator 3.0KW BPMG.

The boat is docked on the Texas coast (salt water).

It would be great if we could find another Maxum boat owner in our area (Galveston, TX) who is familiar with everything on the boat.

Thanks and we look forward to dialog with some new friends!

Welcome Big Sky! As we tell most new owners about these so called manuals they are not worth the paper they are written on.... so what do you do?.....

Where did you purchase your boat? Who ever did they not go through all the system 's with you ? Guess not...

It is a rant of mine but even your surveyor could have done this for you. You did get the boat surveyed I hope.

I have a 3000 and my breaker for the windless is inside the cabinet next to the sink in the cockpit area.

Others should chime in soon that have your size and give you a hand.

Good luck and pictures would be nice😄

Hello. I have a 3300 also. Bought it last year. On mine there is a push button breaker in the aft locker under the sink. It is for the windlass but I think there may also be a fuse on the fuse block under the dash. I have not identified every circuit yet.

Thanks! We will look for it under the cockpit sink cabinet. We have had the boat 10 months now and we did have it surveyed but this location was not noted. I plan to post a pic of it soon as well and we will probably be asking more questions as we go along. We do appreciate your help. We've never owned a craft like this and didn't really know all of the questions we should have asked at the time we bought it. Had to learn all of the terms we were hearing every step of the way, etc. We are finally moving forward with it all now though!

Welcome, I grew up on Galveston and wish I was there now. It was a great place to be a kid in the early 1970s. I lived on Winnie St. And attended Rosenberg Elementary. I'm on the Potomac now so I'm no help at all. But this forum is a great collective.
