Off topic - anyone know about a Maxum 1700 SR?
I am thinking of buying that boat. We want somthing that we can make a decent wake with, nothing crazy, just tired of chasing down bass boats trying to catch some air
Are Maxum's decent boats? Anything I should look out for in particular?

maxums are the same as bayliners. ( same company).
it is just a little fancier trim, ect. IMO still a cheap boat.

The maxum is fine. We sold them at the dealership I used to work at.
They never had quality problems and were fine.

You will probably find the 3 liter to be a bit of a dog though.

they do have the same parent company, ( brunswick) but they are made at different facillities. baja, and seareay are good boats. they are built well.
bayliner, is a cheap, entry level boat. a maxum, is the wxact same hull, and parts as a bayliner. they just have different stickers, ect.
i too have worked at marine serive shops, and cannot tell you how many floors, transoms ect we have replaced.
i have a good friend, who owns a marine service shop, and will no longer even work on any bayliners / maxums.
you get what you pay for, they have cheap upoholstry, carpet, they do not use treated wood in the floors, stringers, transom ect.
a good quality boat, will not only have better quality treated wood, but it will also be resin sealed.
it would be like comparing a chevette to a cadillac. both are GM right, so they must be the same? uh, no.
