New Maxum Owner
Our family is the proud new owner of a 2004 Maxum 2400 SD. We love the boat and all of it's room. We got a great deal on it as the previous owner was looking to get out fast.
There are a few minor items that require some work, but overall, the boat is in good shape.
Among other things, I have replaced the rotted out trim pump bracket, removed the dead stereo (new one on the way), sent the dead tach to Faria for replacement/repair, and replaced broken toggle switches.
The list of things still to do includes recommisioning the fresh water system, fixing the distorted bolster on the helm seat, and buffing/waxing the hull. There are a few broken parts that need replacement such as the windshield standoff/catch and the ladder storage clips. We will be at about 100% when I get those items taken care of.
I think I am going to farm out the buffing and waxing of the hull. I got a quote for about $10 a ft. Does that sound like about the going rate for a buff and wax? The hull is faded from being kept on an outdoor dry rack for 3 years. The cockpit is in good shape though as the boat always had the cockpit covers on when racked. I am hoping once the hull is cleaned up, it will be easy to keep it looking good as we are storing the boat on an indoor dry rack.
