Hi guys,

View the latest post 1995 23 WAC Head

So I finally finished working on the boat to get it everything running, however the head does not seem to be working. When I hit the switch where the TP goes I can here the pump working. When pumping the handle it does nothing. Is the WC 1460-C worth trying to get a kit for or just better to replace. I have heard they were the cheapo heads so if replacing the whole thing what would be a good bolt up replacement. The wife has a teeny tiny bladder so ya know if I wanna go I gotta get this thing working!

Thanks in advance for any help!

View the latest post Attachment(s) Looking for a classic V17!

I grew up on the coast of Rhode Island but have lived and worked in Maine since 1978. I'm a huge, lifelong fan of and user of center-console inshore fishing boats (my last one was a Parker 18), and I just discovered the wonderful, Ray Hunt-designed Wellcraft Step Lift V17 Fisherman, produced back in the 70s.

I WANT ONE! This model gets very positive reviews on fishing-boat forums like The Hull Truth, and it's just what I need for chasing the striped bass that populate Maine's coastal rivers each summer. I hope members of the Wellcraft Owners forum can help me with more information about this boat AND help me find one.

Looking and learning are much more fun than worrying and obsessing about the corona virus.

View the latest post Excel 21sl ignition switch

I just purchased a 1996 Excel 21 SL and the ignition switch has been changed. The owner said it has issues at top speed with the carb. My question is, did this model have a push in choke on the ignition switch or is the choke just the electric choke at the carb?

View the latest post 91 wellcraft with 5.7 mercruiser

So I have come to the conclusion that I am not a mechanic by any means. This boat seems to piss me off more then anything..... That being said, when I put the boat in gear it dies. Reverse or forward throttle. If I go forward and backwards three times the boat will fire back up. So I’m torn between it being the interupter switch? Throttle cable? Shifter cable? Non have been replaced.

Also I think I broke the insides of my throttle. I can push and pull it into gear with out having to push in the shift interlock button....

Anyone have manuals or videos on these specific areas? Any information will help drastically!!

View the latest post Attachment(s) What year and model is this boat

Hi all,

Just registered. A neighbor offered this boat to me for next to nothing. I have not had a chance to look at it in-depth but it seems to be a Wellcraft 18 fish? Any idea what model it actually is and year of make? It was repowered with a mid 2000’s Suzuki 115 which is a plus. Any info on this boat would be greatly appreciated. Pat

View the latest post Is this a cleanout?

I have a 1998 Suzuki DT 140 on my 1984 Wellcraft 166. Both are new to me. There’s a port on the Suzuki that I’m assuming is a water hose attachment for clean-outs. I thought I should post a pic for confirmation before I flush water through it:
