Default Where abouts

My 2100SC is stored at a State Park here in Northern Va. Most boating is done on the upper Potomac. The family vacation over the 4th of July week to Ocean City offered the first opportunity to trailer the boat to a new location and despite my anxiety came off with out a hitch. The municipal parking lot offered storage for the trailer at a very reasonable 20 bucks for the week, and I kept the boat outside the vacation rental. The only hidden cost was for the additional docking lines.

I pulled the boat/trailer with my 2001 Manual xmsn Pathfinder, and this gave me considerable cause for concern since the rating for Manual transmissions is less than automatic transmissions (go figure). I am now looking for new vacation rentals that have boat slip availability and would love to hear from anyone out there.

Default overnight

No,
We are weekend boaters at best. Did manage to haul it to Ocean City Maryland, and on the last night when a thunderstorm cropped up, I spent most of the early hours tending the cover to keep the rain out, but that's about as close to an overnight as I have come.

I now realize that I will need to replace the cockpit cover that I lost about a week after purchasing the boat, or get a zip-in cover that extends from the bimini top across the back of the boat by the ladder. Any ideas as to where to get either would be greatly appreciated.

Boy wait to and see how proud Maxum ($) is on their canvas! I had a piece that got blown off the boat! BTW check with your insurance company mine was covered. I had got the price from Maxum sumitted the claim and then had it make by a canvas guy for half the amount!

I agree with Ken, go to a local canvas guy and have one custom made. It will be much better quality and cheaper. Plus you can get it made exactly the way you want.

I sorta figured that custom fit bit out. As for insurance, the deductable was just enough that it didn't make sense to go that route. The custom guy I used for the front and side curtains did an excellent job, and the end product looks better than Maxum's effort. Guess the adage "Break Out Another Thousand" or Boat for short holds true here.

Just found this board and think it is a great idea. Not much out there to bring Maxum owners together...
I'm from San Diego, boat mainly in San Diego and Mission Bay, with an occasional run out to Lake Havasu.

I know mission bay pretty well, been out with my brother on a 21foot sailboat. You should be into the ocean pretty quick? I don't recall skiiers etc.
What size Maxum do you have?

The time it takes to get to the ocean depends on where you launch.
Dana landing is likely the closest and the straighest shot, but there are launch ramps at the other end the bay and that could take you awhile to get out to sea. Also, a large part of the bay is 5mi/hr which limits how quick you get to the ocean.
I have a 2001 Maxum 2300 SC... great boat for the family!! I have had it about a 1.5 yrs have had a blast with it...

Hi

Just a quick note from Sydney Australia. Ive been a Maxum 1800MX owner for the past 6 months and love it. I know its the baby of the fleet but i had to start somewhere. I would love to hear more tales from other owners and let you all in on the secrets of sydney harbour and some of our other great waterways.
All the best in boating.

Doesn't that much water get choppy, expecially in your boat? I have a 21.5 footer and even in the Potomac river we get bounced pretty good with all the 50 plus boats churning up and down. I have been researching trim tabs for the back, but the unusual channel in the hull design out near the chine makes selection a bit challenging.

Default tabs

I think smart tabs are the ones that are basically just tabs on springs. From my research so far, and in talking to vendors directly, tabs need to be optimized to the hull and just putting something like a smart tab is a shot in the dark. I am looking at something that will be around 14 inches wide and maybe 12 inches back from the transom. I haven't decided whether to go electric or hydraulic, but I'm leaning on electric since the boat is trailered. A good read-out indicator will be a necessity. Of course this is all in the design phases at this point and the proof will be in the water. Will keep you posted.

Hey guys I'm new to this site. I have been given a 19' 1992 maxum and I am stoked ! I can't wait to get into the motor I suspect that it wasn't properly winterized that is most common, but still unknown at this time. it was liened by a wrecker friend of mine that has had it for some time and I have the ss prop, excellent trailer, a fresh water boat and not a nick in the hull, too good to be true. the owner began to take the carb and exhaust off and just quit. I have a small box of nuts and bolts it looks to be all there. I already have a line on a 4.3 liter motor and a marine man in florida told me to put marine head gaskets on the motor and I will be good to go...

Fredericksburg VA. We tow our 2006 1800 SR-3 to Lake Anna 20 minutes SW, and to the Potomac River, 20 minutes East and sometimes to the small Rappahanock River 5 minutes away (usually just for end of the season evening cruises).

The Upper Potomac is a great river for discovery's and sight seeing. From the shark tooth beaches to Mt Vernon to passing by DC's monuments on route to docking in Georgetown for lunch or dinner.
