sounds like a good deal..the first thing I suggest you do is other than change out all fluids and oils..but replace the impeller in the drive...it's mainly called the raw water impeller...
then take a boating safety course....if you have a family have them take it also....

good luck...post pic's here...we looooove pic's....

Thanks for the advice will do. The name does actually mean something, If there are any Navy members on here they may be able to figure it out.

Hi Everyone, I've just signed up. Purchased a year 2000 2755SCR with 5.7MPI and B3 back in January. Really pleased with it. The boat is kept in Pwllheli, North Wales. I have been keeping an eye on you guys for a few weeks on and off so thought that it was time I registered. I hope I can contribute in my own way, but I am impressed with the knowledge of some of you guys!

Hi! My husband and I just bought a new 2008 Maxum 1800mx and named it the Sleeping Monkey. After visiting a few marinas now, I think it may be close to the smallest boat on the Ohio River!

I'm super excited - we've never had a boat before. We live in Cincinnati and are both definitely boating newbies. Looking forward to learning a lot on the message board.

SM...welcome to the zoo....glad you got a boat and having a great time....first bit of advice is....never approach the dock faster than your willing to crash into it...

Default Re: NEWBIES-WELCOME TO THE MAXUM OWNERS CLUB

Greetings,

Just took delivery of a 2006 2000SR3 with the Mercruiser 5.7MPI. Looking to get it out on the water in the next few weeks on Flathead Lake, Montana.

First concern is that it does not come with any kind of owner's manual. Seems like that has been a topic on the site, but I have not found access to anything directly relevant to this boat yet. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Bill
