Hello all! Just bought a 1997 1700SR! Runs like a top, even though I have to do the seasonal tune up as yet, seller didn't want to, but instead sold for great price... It has been very well maintained, used but twice for fishing before selling this year - got it a little dirty. I will have to get some pics..
Took it out in the river after getting it Wed. night, and again today. Ironically passed an identical boat tonight, looks like it may even be same year?!
One question though.. It does clunk going into fwd or rev, is this normal? (First power boat in very long time).

welcome to the zoo....sounds like a nice boat ...when you do your tune up...ensure you get the fluids changed out also with new filter and new impeller..they are pretty cheap and compared to replacing the engine due to overheating....
20 bucks buys alot of peace of mind...

the clunk is normal....it's just allowing the dogs to mesh together as it goes into gear.....just don't jam it in gear while the rpm is revved up....meaning bring it to normal idle and then move to the next gear...saves wear and tear on the teeth of the gears..

Default 97 Maxum 20'

Looking at a new boat to purchase and I figured that you guys on here would know more than me since I am new to the boat owning deal. The owner says it is a 97 Maxum SRF 2000 20' with a I/O 5.7L mercruiser. Here are a few pics

He's asking 4500 for it. Just wondering if this boat is still going to last. He has all the paperwork and has kept everything updated and maintained on it.
Let me know what you think any and all help welcome
Thanks
Josh

Joe, Josh
welcome to the zoo.....josh..nice boat....seems like about a nice price for the boat.....

Joe
parts and stuff can be purchased at places like great lakes skipper dot com and fisheries supplies dot com......they usually have about everything between the both of them...Maxum boats are still supported by USMARINE and parts can still be ordered...
if you have parts that can't be gotten in your area...contact a buddy of mine who works for lake union searay out here in washington state he can usually get about everything drop shipped too you...

Hi everyone, my name is Mike Adams. I'm from Paradise,Ca. I was recently given a 1991 Maxum 2100sc from my dad. It's a project for the winter time.
