Default 2002 Maxum 42 SCR Express

Looking to purchase a 2002 42 SCR and had my sea trial yesterday... The bow started to rise around 1100 RPM and really never came down except for a bit at WOT. The entire interior range of RPM (1200-2500) the bow was pointed straight up at the sky. Tabs appear to work, but did very little. Just trying to find out if this is a specific problem to this model, or if there is something wrong with this particular boat. Any help would be appreciated....

I never heard any complaints of this model. Are you sure the tabs are working? What size are they?

There isnít too much stuff store on board near the stern is there?

Mike, I didn't measure the Tabs but here are photos. No additional equipment that I saw. Just the mains and genset

Doesnít look like bigger tabs will fit but you could add drop fins to them. Did you have the boat surved? And was a moisture test performed to ensure she isnít water logged?

Thanks Mike. They didn't do a moisture test. Also in doing research on this boat, I find different numbers for the dry weight of the boat. Anyplace from 23,000 lbs to 35,000 lbs. Anyone know where to get an accurate number given that Maxum is out of business ?

MaxumCustomerCare has manuals but the site is not maintained and falling apart. Since Maxum and Bayliner were both owned by Brunswick some Bayliner dealers have been able to help some folks with info.
