Wow! Reading through this was intense! I'm glad to hear you've fixed everything and can now enjoy her. I'd imagine at this time you're now a Maxum expert. I'll be sure to come to you if something breaks on my 3000!

Yep I am aware of jetting them in. Special nozzle to burrow and clear hole at same time.

Lol, yea, I've developed a deeper knowledge of my boat than I had anticipated.

She's out of the water today, getting her new extended swim platform. Installed it myself with the help of my wife, mother in law, and a buddy. Heading down to the marina in a few to relaunch and bring her home. I'll take some finished pics today, and post them.

I understand how this works but how stable can it be if you are only in mud. The pylons are usually driven into bedrock so they do not move?

Pier pylons are not driven into bedrock but hard earth. Bedrock is more than the length of a pylon.

Jetting sets them in several feet which is stable however more prone to being pulled out by ice in conjunction with high tides.

We don't deal with heaving due to ice much here in Florida.

Load bearing pilings, such as for a lift need to get driven after they are jetted. Most crews use about 400 pounds of concrete dropped from 6 feet or so to pound them solid.

A jetted piling is at least 5 feet in to the mud. It's amazing just how solid they are. Also remember that the tapered end is down, so as load is applied, the piling is trying to displace mud, which is very dense.

Brought her home with the new platform today! I'm like a kid on Christmas.

Looks great, so how hard was it installing the bolts?
