Default 2000 2800 SCR

Hello all-Mike from OC Ca, currently have a 1994 Bay 2655....we a re currently looking at a 2800, love the layout! This particular boat has the single 7.4, and was wondering if anyone had experience/opinions on a boat this size with the single. Any other comments on the boat would be appreciated-cheers-MM

Default 2800SCR

You'll probably have a number of different opinions on the single vs. 2x engine configuration. I have a 2800 SCR with the 7.4 liter, and it has plenty of power and gets up on plane quick enough. The dual engine configuration probably would be easier to manuver into and out of docks though, but once you get used to it, it becomes easier. The boat does have alot of sail area above the waterline, so you have to consider that when docking in windy conditions.

7.4 should give you plenty of get up and go, many boats this size have only a 5.7 in them and they do OK. I think the smallest Maxum with twins it he 2900SE and it's quite a bit more $$$
If the 2800 has a bravo 3 with counter rotating props, it does a good job maneuvering at low speeds around the docks.

Thanks for the replies! Yes, it has a B3 drive on it.....I am used to slow maneuvering with my single now, was just worried about how fast to get to plane with a single on this heavy of a boat. We love the look and feel of the boat, hope to join yall as an owner soon! Mike

I have the smaller (by a ft) 2700 scr with a 6.2ltr/b3 drive...you'll love it....the big block will give plenty of torque and the b3 drive makes docking really easy.....you can actually spin the boat on it's axis with the b3 drive...just like a twin.....awesome boat....

Hey--is this Seapuppy for BOC board? Howdy, this is MikeMag---we've got the offer accepted on this boat, will be taking it out for Sea Trial this Sunday and then on to survey.....Just listed our 2655 online, so we're in that scary place of possibly 2 boats, but just one slip and no trailer in sight! I'll let ya know how it goes! Mike M

Default New 2700

I am picking up my 2004 2700 on Saturday, coming over from Bayliner and excited about the Maxums!! Here is a stupid question, I had an Alpha one on my previous 19' Bayliner...what makes the Bravo 3 so much easier to manuver as claimed as opposed to if i had an Alpha drive on this boat? Thanks for the input.

Default Great Sea Trial!

Hey all--the sea trial was fantastic, took the boat out in some pretty good chop outside of Dana Point and the boat handled like a dream. The surveyor was very impressed with the condition, and when hooked up to the computer (no Hour meter) engine showed only 108 hours. Having a diver scan the bottom and drive today to determine if we need a haulout. So, yeah--it's got a new home, though for the moment being a 2 boat owner is kinda scary!
I'm coming from an Alpha 1 to a B3 drive as well. My understanding is the counter rotating props make it much easier handling at low speeds, as it cancels out the prop walking effect. Sure seemed to handle nice around the docks to me! mike

Mike...yep..I'm the one and only from BOC....we have the same boat only a 03 model....the B3 drive is really more maneuverable than the alpha drives cuz of the counter rotating props and it really acts like twins..one thing to practice when you get a chance on a calm day is to stop the boat....turn the helm hard right.....put in fwd.....about 1/4 of the turn..take out of gear and quickly spin to the left and put in reverse....boat will spin on it's length...no walking or moving around....less (not completely ) bow walking at slow speeds and better efficiency at speed....
hope you have many moons of good fun with the boat....feel free to ask away here..congrats on the new boat...!! :P


I need a pirate emoticon here.....arr

I have the exact same boat bought it in spring 2002 with 20 hours on it.
Previous boat was a 25' Chris Craft, this is a night and day differance. The 7.4 MPI gets up on plane with little effort top speed about 40, and not to hard on gas if you run it about 3400 RPM

Default Re 2800SCR

Well, she's home in Huntington Harbor now! Dropped off the closing papers Sunday evening and spent the night in Dana Point ---this harbor is fantastic as it has many shops/restaurants on the dockwalk, and you are in open water in 3 minutes!
Left Dana Point around 7am, surprised at the amount of chop out there so early--we're used to wind waves kicking up in the afternoons around here, but had a lot of subsantial swells and residual action from the high winds over the weekend. The boat motored up smoothly though, an amazing ride after being used to our BL 2655.......then.....stopped off of Huntington Beach and decided to test out the windlass (first boat with one). Set down just fine, but 20 minutes later when getting ready to go it seemed to struggle coming up , even though there was almost no load on it, and then we lost all electrical! GPS,lights, horn--all! Had to pull up the line and chain by hand--Perhaps it was fouled in the windlass teeth due to fraying rope? Got back to our slip and noticed a breaker switch next to the inverter--boom, lights back on! Guess I found that one out the hard way, but in all a great time, and just loving the boat--any advice on windlass operation will be appreciated! Mike

If you tripped a breaker there was a big load from some thing?

On our Bayliner we must run the engines while using the windless or it really can drain a batteries in a hurry. Also you did you motor up to the anchor? You shouldn't use the windless to pull the boat to the anchor but rather just to lift it straight up after you reach the spot where the anchor lays on the bottom.

Ah---had the motor turned off! I noticed that when activating the windlass it blanked out the radio etc! I bumped into forward into the current to take stress off the line, but then cut off the motor and activated windlass---will try again under power! Thanks! MM

Default windlass

I had the opportunity to use my windlass about a month ago...without going into alot of rigamaro stuff...the windlass went down ok...and coming up the clutch slipped a little ...so ...took the fancy tool they gave me and tightened it up a little and it came right up....so...no real problem ...did you get the lewmar windlass??...awesome units...check all the connections though to make sure your current draw is not heeded by the corrosion......put some of that dielectric grease on all connections...that should lessen the corrosion effects........glad to hear about your new boat ...your gonna love it...we just got off a week in the canadian gulf islands and it took me 3 days to stop weeving and bobbing all over the place....

Sat down and worked with the windlass at dock-- has no problem going down but still had problems retrieving. With motor on had no more power problems, but turns out the rope was getting snarled in the gypsy, and on further investigation, looks like the previous owner mounted the windlass on the former mount holes without opening the drop to the anchor locker...hmmm! Looks to be about 7/8" shy of the full opening, just enough to hang up the rope coming down..... I think if I widen the opening the rope should fall properly, hopefully solving the problem. Also wondering if new rope would help, as this rope has some soft spots that seem to get caught in the gypsy....ah the joy of taking over a boat and learning its little secrets eh?! But loving the layout, and having a blast even just sitting at dock and learning the boat! M
