To my Maxum Friends,
I just brought my 21' 2008 Maxum SC3 cuddy back to the dealer to be sold. It had only 110 hours on it and in all areas is still new. It seems like I never had time to take the wife out on it with shifting schedules and an hour long trailer haul to the ocean. Spent money last year at a marina and only used it twice. When I did have time to take her out it seems like the boat hated me. It was always one thing or another, dead batteries, electrical problems, fuel problems, radio problems, co detector and lighting problems, trailer brakes rusting in a locked position and so on. Then after all that had to pay for it to be winterized and it took up driveway space needing the snow removed from the cover to keep it from collapsing.
I was getting it ready for some summer fun earlier and found a hornetsí nest in the trailer. With all the issues repaired and ready to go I cleaned her to a gleaming mirror like finish and there she sat in the driveway collecting dust, pollen and berries from the trees while either I worked weekends or the wife did. With further obligations till August I decided to hang it up. The dealer who gets a 10% cut on the sale told me it would move quickly. It's a 2008 but is in new condition, low hours and I added a cooler and a $700.00 GPS Unit. He said 21' Maxums with a cuddy are far and few between in the area and in demand. I guess people are crazy for them in Europe also. Anyway just wanted to thank everyone especially seapuppy and shrew for listening to all the issues I had over the past two years and whom gave me great guidance in getting things right. I'm going to miss the water but won't be as painful as missing the water while looking out at my boat in the driveway on a brilliant 75 degree day.
Have a great summer and be safe!
