View the latest post 1985 210 Elite


Hello All,

New to this forum and the boat community in general. I picked up a 1985 (manufactured in 1984) WellCraft 210 Elite with a 260 Mercruiser SN: A309941/ Rochester Quadrajet Carb (17080561- 2364), from my boss for $500 ( Bartered labor hours with him instead of cash so basically no money out of pocket yet........). Not sure what kind of shape the stringers are in the floor is mosly solid with a few softer spots near the lower sleeper section entry ( its been left outside uncovered for about 5 years so who the hell knows. Charged both batteries up and was just going through some tests make sure electrical components work. It seems like the trim system is working up and down (thank god he had a ratchet strap under the out drive to support it all those years).all the elictrical seems to be working motor turns over but havent got around to changing oil/ fuel filters yet. also havent got around to filling it up with fuel either(didnt know if i needed to flush to the tank or what). Supposedly he had tooken it out at some time said everything was fine exept the fact that the bilge pump had to stay on to keep pumping water out due to leak somewhere he says it was in the outdrive seal im not to familiar with the setup. Im trying to find some sort of information on this boat, like a service manual or even an owners manual for that matter. Starting to think one does not exist but thats hard to believe. If anyone could point me in the right direction it would at least get me going on were to start with this thing.

View the latest post 88 Portofino 4300 Front A/C


1988 Portofino 4300 - Can anyone tell me where the water intake, raw water filter and pump are for the front berth ac unit. Just getting a trickle flow out of the thru-hull discharge when I turn on the unit. The ac is under the bed on the port side and I can see the inlet and outlet hoses for the unit but they go through a hole. Don't see the inlet line in any of the other floor access points. Thanks.

View the latest post Where is the light switch???


I recently purchaserd a 1988 Portofino 4300 and trying to learn the boat. I'm getting there, but...I feel stupid asking...there are two small lights at the head of the v-berth bed. Each had burnt out bulbs (small base). I put in a new bulb and low and behold, it lit up. "Good", you say, however, I didn't flip a swiitch to turn it on, because I can't find any switch. Can anyone give me a clue where the on/off switch or button is for these lights. Thanks...

View the latest post Metal shavings in bilge?


The lanyard to my oil drain hose broke so I stuck a magnet in to try to find the bloody thing and ended up pulling out a tablespoon or so of fine metal shavings.
Does anyone have any ideas on this?
Boat runs strong, no metal in oil, changed every season.

New to this board but not boating. Have been fishing my whole life and recently moved to North Carolina and bought this boat as rehab project. currently redoing the wiring as most of it is corroded and going through everything to make sure its ocean worthy.

thanks,

James

View the latest post New member, new to boating


Hello all. Just made a swap with a local dealer from a 1990 Carver 4207 to a 1988 Portofino 43 with gas engines (P43). It's a long story...In any event, here I am needing owner manuals. Just like Carver, I know that Wellcraft won't have OEM equipment information (engines, generators, etc.). The dealer I'm working with has been told by previous owner that he would provide the boat's documentation; we'll see. In the meantime, if anyone has a copy of a general 1988 P43 owners manual they could point me to or send me (via PM), it would be much appreciated. I'll consider this my first boat because I didn't get to take out the Carver due to problems. Live and learn; hopefully this P43 will be a better experience.

View the latest post 1988 Wellcraft Portofino 43


Dear all,
I am considering a new to me Wellcraft Portofino 43 from 1988. Boat has 2x CAT 3208 with 375HP each. My question is: What kind of problems should I be aware of regarding this engines? Are they reliable? How difficult it is to get spares? And regarding the hull? Are there any major concerns that I should be aware of?
Thanks very much for all the help!
Regards,
Tiago
