Hi everyone,
I've been a 18 foot runabout boat owner for many years. I just bought a 1994 maxum 2400 scr.
Are there any tips or tricks that would enhance my learn curve of this larger boat?
Also, what does the SCR represent?
Thanks.

Welcome aboard

SCR sport cruiser

A cruiser handles different than a sport boat I recommend taking a week day and find a cove to practice slow speed maneuvers that are required to dock her. Are you keeping her in the water, boatel, or trailer?

Hi,
I'm keeping her trailered.
I took her out last Sunday for the maiden voyage.
She handles pretty well.

2400 will be slower, turns are wider, draft is deeper, but now you have a hotel on water that will sleep 4. Kitchen and bath. AHHH the good life. Enjoy.

"neutral is your friend" is a great piece of advise I received many years ago. Now I pass it on to you. Welcome aboard and enjoy the cruiser life.

Yeah... you have more mass moving so slow down. Never approach a dock faster than you wan to ram it.

2400 was my first maxum. Great boat! Be careful it is heavy to trailer i burned out a lot of breaks and rotors on my tow vehicle.

Your tow vehicle must have been under sized.
