Default New Owner 1998 Maxum 2300 SC

Hello everyone. Thanks for adding me. I can’t say we are new owners (bought this boat 10 years ago: 1998 Maxum 2300 SC with Chevy 454 Bravo 3 outdrive We put it in storage after the test run. Finally talked my husband into taking it out). Crazy I know but we were busy getting married, working, etc. Well I’ve retired and want to get out on the water. We took it out of storage this weekend, cleaned, polished and scrubbed and it looks great. However, when we tried to get it running it started but the water would not pump with the muffs on. Husband thinks we may need the impella replaced. Questions: 1. does anyone know where I can obtain an owners manual for this model. 2 also, does anyone known if this boat has an impella In the lower unit or just in the upper motor. Thanks so much n

The manuals for the engine and drive can be found under Documents of this site. Being a Bravo the raw water pump is mounted to the starboard side of the engine.

If i read it right and the boat has been in storage for 10 years it needs more than just an impeller. A full tune up and inspection of the bellows etc is in order.
