Default Maxum 41 SCA - Many Upgrades

I just wanted to share some pictures of my pride and joy! I am new here and have many projects to share! I have owned this boat for 7 years now.

Lookin' good. Are the sundeck's light just blue, or did you use some type of multi-colored LEDs?

They are multicolored, they change colors whenever power is cycled at the switch. So, turn on from the start, they are white. Turn On then Off twice, they are blue. Then green. Then Red. Then back to white.

Very nice ... I've seen those bulbs and thought about doing the same, but chickened out on the price. Maybe just white and blue for me .. we'll see.

I did have one other question. My tender also is aft of the swim deck, but is suspended from a pair of davits, so the 'keel' down to swim deck distance is about two feet. This allows me to run 'crossed' stern lines under the dink - helps keep the boat centered in the slip (we're stern in). Have you found your mount interferes with your desired stern line set up?

I can also cross tie with it mounted. Depending on how high the lines are tied, I can either go below the tender or nicely above it. It doesn't interfere. Nor do I keep it on the boat long-term. I usually store it in my garage and just mount it up there for trips

Awesome looking. Just had my floors redone....got rid of carpet and installed vinylÖ..Lots of work for the boat yard. They just have wholes in the hatches to stick you finger in to remove them. What have you used to "fill-in' the wholes and allow you to pull up the cabin floor hatches? What kind of dingy and power do you have? I'm just ready to buy another dingy and didn't have too much luck with West Marine. Rub rails came unglued....UGH!.

Love the Hurly davit. I didn't know they had a under swim platform support. Great idea and improvement over the old style (I have). Great idea. LOOKS GOOD!!!

Thanks.....pulling rug and padding must have been a REAL challenge!!

Thanks for all the info. Dingy is what kind...and what HP. We have the old style Hurley with extensions to pull up on swim platform. I'm in the market for a new Dingy as my West Marine "fell apart".

The dinghy is from a company called 'Raider Marine'. I bought it brand new from a dealer in Michigan. I'm not sure if they're even still being produced. It is a hard fiberglass bottom. It has been a great little boat so far. I have a brand new Suzuki 15HP on it. Fuel injected with electric start. No more cord pulling! I would recommend staying away from the West Marine brands. You can find good deals on inflatables at most boat shows in the spring. 'Brig' is the big name brand, but honestly they really aren't that much better. These boats are what they are. I keep mine inside out of the sun when not in use, and it has been great.

I got the Suzuki motor for several reasons:
1- The great factory warranty
2- It was the only 15HP on the market that was fuel injected. Which means it actually starts and run the way it's supposed to!

I did a lot of research. All the big names (Mercury, Honda, Yamaha) they are the same motor at 15HP and less (built by Tohatsu). This Suzuki is just a great design and it's been an awesome motor.

Default Very Nice

I am in Australia on the Gold Coast and have just lost one of the trim tabs.
I was wondering what size and make are you new stainless steel ones...they look great as with all your changes.

I will take photos of mine and post soon.
