Not much to tell - docked at Hemenway Harbor in Las Vegas. The Lilly Pad is our second boat - upgraded from a BL2452 - really need the generator and A/C here in the desert. Use it for a little fishing and quite a few long weekends in the summer. It serves as summer home for me, the wife, and our 4 dogs. I was looking around for information on some projects I want to do and couldn't find anything useful, so I googled "maxum boat owners" and found you nice folks. I look forward to trolling around here, trading stories and learning from you more experienced boaters!

I'm a total boating newbie ....here are some lessons I've learned so far: 1. Do not de-ice your fridge with a knife after you've been drinking all day. That is a pricey repair. 2. Check battery water before every trip (particularly in summer). 3. Same as #2, for oil. 4. Docking becomes more difficult in direct proportion to the number of other boaters watching you.

haha...LP....that's the first I've ever heard of defrosting the fridge that way...

one good lesson about docking.....

never approach the dock faster than your willing to crash into it....

A newbie here, thought I would introduce myself. I just happened to come across your forum and thought I would join. My wife and I are starting our second summer with our first boat, a 1997 Maxum 1900. So far, so good...runs like a scalded dog Although she has been a boating lifer, I didn't get into it until we started dating (her parent's boat is a Maxum 2100 SC). We live in south central Nebraska and boat mostly around here (a handful of decent sized lakes w/in an hours drive).

Love this forum and the information...enjoy the upcoming summer.

Another Newbie logging in. Just google searched and found the site. Just bought my first boat 2900 scr based in UK on inland waters but hoping to get it out to our home in Spain I would welcome all advice and comments especially on the new boat.Any contact with Maxum owners in the UK and Spain (Alicante/Torrevieja) would also be welcome.

Hey everyone,
Thanks for the greeting SP. I live on Long Island in New York with my wife and three kids. Had a beater boat a few years back and gave boating a try without a big outlay. Of course, we all loved. Got rid of the beater and bought a 21' 2001 Maxum Sport Deck. For a nine year old boat, the Owner took impeccable care of it. It looks like new. She runs really well with only 118 hrs on the motor and even has bow and stern thusters. I thought they were a joke at first, but when tying up with a moured boat this past weekend, everyone was surprised at how well they worked. Very cool. I was a shocked however, to find out that Maxum is no longer in business. Guess I should have done more research.....First time joining a forum. I'm a little slow getting around the site. Talk to you guys/girls later.

Hi all,
I'm new to this club but have been looking at it for some time. It's very informative and it's nice to know others love their Maxum's as much as I do.
My wife and I have a 1994 3200SCR. I bought it with bad engines knowing that I would install a pair of 300hp ea. Vortec engines.
We boat on the lower Connecticut River, and Long Island Sound.
This is our 3rd boat, we've been boating since 1998.

Greetings again, Erik! As Ed said, no worries on the language. I have to admit I'm impressed at all the helpful people around here too.

I really like the idea of living on a boat for the summer and snuggle away in a condo in the winter. Sounds like a great time! Enjoy the 2300 in the meantime.
