Well I had a test drive in the Maxum, a very powerful boat and for its age in good condition.
The owner had only just had a new water pump fitted as the bearings were on their way out but apart from that had no major problems, the engine sounded fine to my untrained ear though I have some experience of car engine noises you don't want to hear :!:
A couple of minor faults I would appreciate some feedback on:
The speedometer was very temperamental and eventually did get going but not sure if it was accurate though I don't really consider it an important gauge.
The aluminium prop had some damage to the edges, especialy on one of the three blades, a small section missing and a small bend on the end. I might use this as a reason for negotiating the price :!: what does a new one cost :?:
We will view the boat out of the water in early February and make a final decision.
We are nearly hooked
