Smile Wellcraft owners forum?

Anyone know if a Wellcraft owners forum is out there?

Seems like a link or two have been thrown out here at THT in past threads but goes no where...but I thought I tripped over one a few months back...but Google is completely exhausted from searching for me!

Thanks Mates!

Ya, when getting down to small nuts and bolts of any brand of boat...it would be nice to not bore everyone in THT with a thread about the "Wellcraft stainless hardware transom door sticking issue...and easy work arounds for it". When there is a more intimate forum available.

Thanks for your reply post!

I'm sure the folks who view this thread will be Wellcraft guys LYT...what year and model Wellcraft do you own?

Obviously you know I have a Coastal 232 (2005 Anniversary Edition fully tricked out). And looking to share with other owners some good advise on re-propping to a 4 blade, windlass installation, outriggers, radar, and my experience changing out standard lighting for the hardtop, swim-offs, and deck to LED's which worked out so well.

Also the down side of things we have all had to make due with...maintenance issues, design issues, and problems found from stem to stern.

So Wellcraft guys out there chime in here at any point...

You could always start a Wellcraft Forum. Seems like the brand has a cult following, and getting a dedicated forum for Wellcraft Owners going shouldn't be too difficult.

I started a forum for Key West Boats last year and have had great success with it. I used prophpbb.com as a host, but there's several others available.

I have an older 250 sportsman 1990. only bought it because it was in such nice condition for an older boat.... but recently my engine is making me reconsider the boat itself IMHO is about as solid as the day it came off the line.....in my limited knowledge

I have always had a stupid issue of my fishboxes not draining, and wish i could understand whether it was or was not hooked up to the mascerator or not.... if I had this knowledge I probably would not have accidentally broken the drain... this is where a wellcraft forum would be invaluable..... (although I am very good at breaking things

as for your 232---that really is a sweet boat.....

Join on up at clubwellcraft. I'm over there as well as a few others from here. Its very new and could use some more members.

Always seemed strange to me that there wasn't more wellcraft forums out there what with the popularity of the scarabs etc.

I believe there are a couple guys on this forum that at one time worked for Wellcraft/Aquasport, contact with them may turn out fruitful.

You rang? Yep, I'm on there, as well as being a moderator. It doesn't get much traffic, you'd think with all the thousands of WCs out there...

Ok boys...now we are starting to get somewhere!

I'm not the only Wellcraft owner that is on the web (phew!).

Thanks BKCorwin...I knew I had tripped over that site a few months back, but nearly impossible to find when searching the web.

I believed I registered with that site a while ago and never got a response back.

Thanks for answering this thread guys...

I have posted my re-wire start on Blue Chip's '95 Scarab 302 Sport over there, for any one interested. She's a sweet boat for 17 years old, going to make her REAL pretty when I'm done...http://www.clubwellcraft.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1364

And bignick, welcome aboard!!

I joined for the second time last night (the first time a few months ago I didnt under ****** under my family email address...I tried to use my own, and it said it was in use.

So I'll need to straighten that out soon.

I also could find a way to contact the moderator, site manager, or host to inform them of my problems.
