Default New Owner 97 2700 SCR

Hello everyone. I'm new here and just bought a 1997 Maxum 2700 SCR last week. Had been looking at boats for a few months and found this one locally at a boat yard that was selling it on consignment.

I am hoping to get out on the water this weekend and spend the night on it.

We had to replace the compass, and the trim tab switches since they were sun melted. We also bought a new Bluetooth Pioneer stereo head unit, new Kenwood marine speakers, a 24" LED 1080p tv for the front berth, and a blu-ray player.

We are adding a transom tow hook to the boat to pull tubes.

The boat has the 7.4L and Bravo 2 outdrive. I'm looking into getting a lock nut made for the Bravo 2 since it has an expensive 4 blade stainless steel prop. I've heard you can get a machine shop to machine down a Bravo 3 lock nut so I have to find a shop here to do that.

We need to find a place that can make a custom memory foam mattress pad for the rear berth as we want to replace the mattress and mattress cover that's in there. Eventually we will re-cover the front berth cushions and back rests with something a little more modern and better looking than the tweed. We have ordered a feather bed mattress pad for up front.

I'll include some pics of the boat.

Here's some more pics. Does anyone know how to level out the rear cushions? We found some white boards in the rear berth but I don't know how to set them up so that the cushions are level with the seats.

USAF welcome aboard, nice clean looking boat. The BII and BIII's rear prop nut are the same size. The mounting hardware is different between them as the BIII has soild hubs.

We plan on heading there a lot this summer. I work M-TH but I always have 3 day weekends so that should be good for our boating hobby.
