Glad to see this site. I have a 1998 4100 SCR. before that i had a 3700 scr. had real good experiences with both boats. love maxums and wish this board success. BTW, the 41' has cummins diesels 330 hp., much more efficient than my 3700 which had 380 hp. mercruisers. thanks.

I have a 1999 2800SCR I purchased two years ago. I've done many upgrades and not done yet. Total repower (long block and lower unit) last year as previous owner did not maintain well. Also added LCD TV in both berths, inverter, fresh water flush kit. Next I will be looking to replace the carpet in the salon with teak flooring. Much easier to keep clean. I keep the boat in Miami. Season never ends hear.

Default 2400 SCR

We have a 2400 SCR year 2000.
Just got it a couple of weeks ago. Had the sea trial already, survey and compression test and everything went fine.

Boat is on the water, doing some cleaning and getting it ready for the season. Still pending bottom paint and drive service, will be done before the end of the month.

Boating in N.Va, enjoy the season!

Default Pilot house

I sure like getting in and out of that channel, cuz your on the river in no time at all. My problem is getting to Pilot house from Springfield. 95 can be a mess on any given weekend, and Rt. 1 isn't all that much better. Have you found some back road that gets you there without much hassle?

I was down there last Friday looking to see if there were any good boats for sale in the upper lot. Looked pretty sparse.

Default e-mail error

Tried to reply via e-mail, but got an error... here's the reply.


Actually it takes about 20 minutes of no wake, then once past Belmont golf course you're to the no wake in a tick. Of course on a weekend, you have all the Boatel 50+ footers that generate huge wakes. But usually, we are out in the Potomac and either headed towards Mattawoman, or up to the district. We usually stop in that first bay back where it necks down. Look forward to seeing you out there. I was gonna have it de-winterized this week, but the temps are still on the wrong side of freezing. Looking at 1st or second weekend in April if everything works to plan. I ordered a new cover, and that needs to arrive first. Then I'm seriously thinking of adding Tabs before the season starts. That should be a weekend project, and no more. I never get more than a 100 yards before the VHF is on so listen for SempreVeloce Calling on channel 16. What's your boat name, and I'll keep an ear out?

I've been in and out of Maxums for years... just got back in and have a 06 1800SR3 with the 4.3 MPI.

Its loaded with pretty much everything, plus a lot of stereo and Wakeboard gear (Tower, racks, etc...)

Just joined this board, hopefully I can learn a little and teach a little

Mike

Hi Mike,

I just bought the 2006 1800SR3 myself last week. We went on our 'maiden voyage' just yesterday putting in a smallish lake. Lot's of traffic on the lake (typical for the weekend around the 4rth) and the water was very rough. We were jumping rollers all day long and really coming out of the water.
What's the best way to handle water conditions like that? I was trying to "drive" through any rollers/wakes like driving a motorcycle around potholes. Constant throttle adjustments etc. Should I just pick a speed and let it eat? Will the boat handle that or should I be "driving" the water like I was?

We found a calm cove to anchor and party in and everyone loved the swim deck and the stereo remote on the transom. The glovebox cooler holds a surprising amount!

The 4.3 had ample power. I'm looking forward to opening it up on some glass water.

Speaking of opening it up, with 3 hours on the engine. The dealer said to not do full throttle "hole shots" or keep it at idle for more than ten minutes or one speed for longer than ten minutes. the Mercruiser manually suggest the same basic thing. Others I have talked to said that engine "break in" is an old wives tale and don't worry about it. I'd rather be safe than sorry though. But I'm dieing to open this puppy up.
