Just getting my first Maxum
I just joined this group to share and get feedback as I am completing the purchase of my first Maxum. It's a 30 foot cruiser with a 5.0 Mercruiser engine , its also my first boat ever.
I'm getting it surveyed before I sign the final papers, going for a 2nd sea trial next week. If all goes well, I should be able to enjoy a month or so here in Buffalo before I put it up for the winter.
She seems to be in pretty good shape, pretty generic down below and no camper top, but everything works so far. The moulding took some banging around in the slip (they said the kids weren't taking care of it, that why the sale)
I'm hearing pros and cons about buying this boat, I've been working around the marina all summer so I learned a lot and now I'm presented with an opportunity to have my own boat.
Well, there it is. I was originally looking for something smaller, more easily trailerable, and for about 1/2 the price. But this here seems like the chance to bypass that and get right to what probably would have been my 2nd boat purchase .
