Default Cabin Door Key

Just a quick thought regarding cabin door keys for Maxum owners for anyone who may not have a spare set or two of keys. Since the line will be discontinued sometime in the future, and support ought to be discontinued after warranties expire I believe, I was thinking about how we only had one cabin door key when we bought our Maxum back in December.

We went to a locksmith to copy the key because we like to keep 1 set of boat keys in each car so we never get to our boat and have forgotten the keys.

The locksmith said the key was proprietary and a copy couldn't be made so suggested contacting Maxum who affirmed it. Maxum parts/support were great and mailed us 2 cabin door keys, free of charge within a few days. The ignition key was no problem to copy.

Prior boat: 1999 Maxum 2400SCR (I loved that boat but the wife made me get bigger). Current: '96 Carver 325 aft cabin.
