Default New to Us: 1998 MAXUM 3700 SCR

Hello from the Sassafras River where our "new to us" 1998 MAXUM 3700 SCR has wintered just after our purchase. We are painting, cleaning and replacing some items in preparation for launch, including designing and applying a new name, Lady Mae II. We love the boat and all of the amenities as our previous boat was a vintage 27 foot Uniflite Cruiser with single screw. The only item I'm having trouble locating for replacement is the hull cover under the bow, windlass assembly. It has some damage from the anchor being hauled up over the years and is a screw on cover. We'll move to our summer slip at LEE's on the Northeast River after launch. Please stop for a refreshment!

Greetings and Welcome:

We just put our boat in the water last weekend at Skipjack's on the Sassafras, after getting mechanical work and recommissioning work done at Duffy's Marina in Georgetown Harbor (MD). I probably can't be much help in regard to the issue you identified. This will be our 1st full season with our 2008 2900 SE after purchasing it last August.

Hello from Middle River. Youíll not find that part as Maxum went out of business in 2009. Youíll need to custom make one.

+1.
Not too hard to fabricate from starboard or a large cutting board (if you can find one in your area). I’m on my second one (we anchor out quite a bit).

I agree. It's a sacrificial piece and intended to wear and be periodically replaced. I'd fabricate it out of starboard. I would think 1/4" would be fine. You can take a router to the soften the edges and used a countersink pre-drill bit and flat head ss screws.

Thanks. I didn't consider making a new one, just replacing it as OEM. I'll give that a try.
