Default today is getting ready to boat

got up this morning and after breakfast, went to the boat after stopping for some outdrive oil....
I changed the outdrive oil, greased the fittings in the drive and steering linkage shafts.....cleaned alot of stains off the fiberglass and seats...tightened a bunch of door screws and nuts all over the boat.....rearranged one of my lockers that I store oil and stuff in....cleaned it up some...and just did a bunch of stuff that I've been wanting to do for months.....it's getting closer!!...time to go boating!!!...hope everyone else had a good weekend....


sunday....woke up and took my time doing stuff around the house...then went back to the boat to change the oil in my westerbeke genny...I'm always amazed at how we have to change the oil in marine engines....if your a newbie and are about to change your own oil...get a oilbouy.....about the best 45 bucks you'll spend on your boat....for the genny I stuck the hose down the dipstick hole and started pumping the oilbouy...about 5 min.s later....it had sucked all the oil out of the oil pan...changed out the filter and added the new oil....run and test for leaks and badabing...it's done!!...all ready for another hundred hrs of operation.....
now I'm ready to go boating!!...

Default getti ready 2

Went to the DC boat show and I'm getting ready too! But, this won't be a Maxum season for me. If you're in Northern Va, or Maryland, there's an excellently maintained, and extremely well equiped, electronically Maxum 2100SC that Hoffmasters has for sale. It's "Sempre Veloce".

The Chaparrel dealers made me an extremely good trade in offer as an inducement to purchase a New 255SSi with 360 horse motor and Radar Arch, and my new boat is being built as you read this.

As it took me years to figure out the deficiencies of the 2100SC, and I have corrected them on my boat, I sure would like to see it wind up in a fellow Maxum guy's hands, and I'll be sure to watch this forum just to see what happens.

Chapperal; eh? Man, now I know how the BayLiner guys feel (just kidding).

I've checked out the Chaps at the shows. Very nice. Congrats Franco!

I had a Chaparral, if it wasnt for the Yamaha sterndrive (obsolete), I would probably still have it, was a great boat.

Default hoffmaster

No, I don't know what they'll ask.. prolly pretty close to blue book, which will be a good deal. I plan on leaving the color GPS/fishfinder/depth Lowrance, and the high end VHF radio, plus, I just put the Lenco tabs on, and I have modified, or cured many of Maxum's defecencies like the back side of the ovals. Maxum is supposed to encorporate some of my recommendations, but I didn't look to see if any made it in this year's models.

Have your friend visit this link..
http://sempreveloce.tripod.com/

and if he is interested, I can give him the contact name at Hoffmasters.
