Hi all - I recently purchased a Maxum 2400 SC3 - just a couple of years old, and on our early trials have found that the hull sits with a very pronounced list only when on the plane in a moderate to strong sideways wind. Otherwise she sits perfectly level.
From various discussions locally, it appears this is quite a normal thing and, with the Maxum sitting so high out of the water and low front weight, she may be more prone than some other makes/models.
Of course I have been given a huge amount of advice on how to tackle the matter. I am very much aware of the weight distribution factor, and I have checked the stern and all fittings appear to be perfectly straight and perpendicular.
I am considering the possibility of having Bennet Trim Tabs fitted. From my (not too experienced) point of view, these would give me the ability to correct for level trim under any weather conditions that I may encounter, which can be extremely variable in the area I use it, but I believe would also allow the boat to get on to, and stay on, the plane at lower speeds which should overall create some level of fuel economy ?
I would very much appreciate any advice, suggestions, or even just comments and opinions, whether in agreement or not :!: :!: :!:
If you ever get the feeling that you're being watched . . . .
