Hi Fellow Maxum Owners,
Glad I came across this owners club. Found it while trying to find information about a few things that came back on a recent Surveyor report.
I've owned my 2000 Maxum 3000 SCR since 2008 and have loved having it.....celebrated many fun times on our local lake. Truth be told though - I'm still a novice. I'm more the 'have the fun' type...and call a mechanic if there is a problem.
However, over the last four years, our usage had gone down considerably due to our need to focus more on our home based business efforts. Anyhow, long story to say that we are now trying to sell our boat.
About six months ago I had misc. items of the boat (toilet, etc.) repaired and the boat pulled (had been in water for 7 straight years) and the boat bottom repainted...and when this was done, the individual doing this said that he noticed some blistering taking place.
We have our fist interested buyer...and upon him getting a survey - and much to my surprise - the surveyor said that there was a high level of moisture in the stringers - at least those where he could test. YIKES...that sounds BAD.
How bad is this...and what are my options for getting it repaired. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!
