    Re: Pics of your classic Wellcraft

    Well, as some of you guys know, here is mine. I can't wait to get her all cleaned up and set up the way I like.

    It is a 1987 200 Classic with a 5.0 Mercruiser with Alpha 1 outdrive.

    I am really looking forward to a fun summer on it!!!

      This is my friend's 1991-ish Wellcraft Excalibur. Neat boat, kind of rare from what I gather. He got an incredible deal on it, it was garage kept and almost no hours.

      This pic was after it's maiden run.
      You can see my boat behind it, interesting on the 12-13 year difference in styling lines haha.

        Maybe not a classic yet but will someday since Wellcraft doesn't make these anymore.

                  75 hours of buffing and wet sanding but she sure looks nice now.
                  An oldie but a goodie. This boat handles rough Mississippi River water with no issues and still out runs most comparable boats. GPS highest 52 mph with a 350 Mercruiser.
                  We just love the boat

                    I just bought a 1984 3100 Express Cruiser today. I'll post some pics after delivery in a couple of weeks. This is my first Wellcraft but it looks like a VERY well built boat. The surveyer was impressed with how it was built and rigged.

                        That's an offshore! Nice boat, the XL250 has teak on top of the windshield and a big sundeck in the back.
                        That's a big brother to my 78 210XL! LOVE it!

                          Here's my '84 180 Elite. Just finishing up a full resto job. This is right after I put on a fresh coat of paint.




                          And here is a vid of her first test run after the restoration.

                              I need some pics of it in the water, interior is cherry. It's a 1986 Elite 200. Has a 350 Merc Inboard. It runs like a striped *** monkey. Bought it in the spring 2010, this is my first boat. Still working kinks out, flaky electrical and instrumentation type issues.
