View the latest post 2002 330 Coastal Props?

Hi All, My friend has a new to him, 2002 330 Coastal with 8.1 Volvo gas engines. The boat gets 4700 RPM WOT. After looking online we can't seem to find any specs on this boat, so I thought I would ask here.

Does anyone know any info on this boat? Were trying to find the right props. The four bladed ones on the boat now don't seem to be stamped so were not sure what they are. Also we don't know what Max RPM is for these engines, so were really lost. We tried contacting Wellcraft through there online contact form but haven't heard back from them in a month.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all, I’ve just purchased a 260SE Excel from Akaroa, New Zealand. I towed it back to Auckland behind a Toyota landcruiser and found it to be a great tow-er. The boat has had a bit of a hard life up to now but I am hoping to restore it to its former glory. I come with a background of sailing vessels but am now over the ‘journey’ and want to enjoy the ‘destinations’. Looking to educate myself here on how these boats work.

View the latest post Winter Projects

On some of the other forums I use people always start a winter project post. So since this forum is kinda slow I thought I'd post something to get it going.

I will start. We purchased a 1990 Portofino in December that has low hours and great bones, but needs some serious updating. Before spring Launch in April we plan to:

Replace all carpet with composite flooring in the cabin
Replace all 1990 electronics-Has original Radar, Loran, etc
New Radar
New stereo
6 new LED cabin speakers
New 12" Subwoofer
2 new amplifiers
Complete cut, buff , wax on the hull
Bottom paint
Some canvas updating
Replace most of the interior cabin lights
LED strips in the cabin
LED Strips in the cockpit
2 new flat screen TV's
Add a second fridge(like post 1992's)

Plus about 100 other things as the first mate see's fit. The fun part in in Minnesota that means I have about 6 weeks to do that once the weather breaks in March to be ready for a late April launch!!! Can't do much but collect parts, plan and dream right now. Oh and hope the old boat sells soon!!

View the latest post 30 amp splitter question

Hi all. I recently purchased a 2015 Coastal 290 and have been spending this cold Maine winter preparing for our return to boating in the spring. Our manual indicates that the boat is equipped with two 30 amp shore power cords. Are the two cords necessary, or can I use one cord with a 30 amp male to 2 female splitter? Another question, not electrical, this is our first boat with outboards and wondering if it is best to use the tilt support lever and retract the trim rods at all times such as when anchoring for the night, or is the tilt support lever generally used for longer periods when away from the boat. Thanks for any input!

View the latest post Installing rod holders on 290 Coastal

I have a 2001 Wellcraft Coastal 290. I want to install additional gunwale mounted rod holders on port and starboard. The Coastal 290 makes it tough because you have an aluminum rail and fiberglass rail in the area for mounting so you would need to use a narrow rod holder. I have seen some 290 images online were people have added rod holders to this area. Just wondering if anyone knew what model and brand of rod holder was use.

I am also in the process of adding mounting plates for my Scotty downrigger and Ace Hauler in the same general area. I can thru bolt the two inner bolts on the aluminum edge, but wondering what guys have done over the fiberglass, because there is no access to thru bolt under the fiberglass and I am worried just screwing into the fiberglass will not hold under pressure.

View the latest post 94 Scaraba 29 w 502 doesn't crank hot

My 94 Scarab 29 with a stock 502 cdi doesn’t want to crank when the engine is hot and I stop for a few minutes and try to start it on one battery. If I switch to both batteries it will crank and start. If I try to start the engine hot immediately after stopping, it will crank on one battery and start easily. If I let it cool (about an hour or more) it will crank and start easily. If I haven’t started the engine in months it will crank slowly on the same battery and eventually start. I’ve also had the starter fail on me once the old starter had the same symptom.
Any ideas are appreciated
