Hi all,

 

I picked this one up in MN where I live, for dirt dirt cheap. 

I will be running it on the Mighty Mississippi this Spring.

The boat has some issues, I need to get some engine work done, should be able to find someone around here to do so. 

 

The Cabin area has only one dual bench seat with a rear slideout , the rear seat has been removed, and I would like to somehow retrofit one that could tip up so you can get to the engine compartment fairly easily...

 

Looking also to somehow figure out how to have a camper top either made, or ideally someone had one in grandpa's barn that was 20 years old new in the box , that will never hapen though!!

 

The bimini's need some work as well..

 

The interior is ok but dated and I will be reupholstering everything and trying to update as much as possible ...

 

Adapting to Shore Power is a goal, CD/Radio, Marine VHF and more are coming for it.

 

Just wondering if I could start a dialog with some other owners on this boat.

 

Mines an 86

mj_gunderson@msn.com    Send some pics of your boat if you want, I could always use more ideas!!!    I picked it up for super cheap, so if I have to put 4-5k or more in it i will, its very solid overall

Seeing what to ask for it.

Hi,

I paid 1700.00 including a V Bunk Trailer that could accomodate a LARGER boat.  It was a Craiglslist find... the guy was struggling money wise...

That's a steal! Hope it runs okay for ya.

If you need any advice on the top items I would check just ask, glad to help.

I have replace lower unit, gimble bearings, throttle linkage, got a few hours in finding the right and wrong ways to get the job done..

Our '89 Welcraft 2800 cost us $1600 to buy and $18,000-ish to get working well.  So it goes with boats.  You might want to get that trailer checked out carefully, as oversize trailers have a habit of damaging boats.  Excessive spring load and improper balance can wreak havoc on a hull.

I found a woman that bar tends at the bar where I am going to slip it at that does camper tops and bimini tops. Am getting quoted on those items.  SHe does that work on the side.

Bringing it in hopefully next week to get the engine looked at, has been way too cold here yet.

 

Do you have some decent pics of yours // mainly looking at what sort of rear seat I could put it, what the camper top looked like. 

Wondering if a vacuflush would be compatible ?  Found one locally brand new in the box but unsure if it would fit.. price was right 100.00

I need to install all the stereo stuff as well yet, have bought all that stuff, plus the marine radio.. where is yours at if you have  one?

Where are you at?  My cousin is looking for one of these even knowing he could never get the deal i got!

I agree with Swampnut..
wellcraft 260 aft weighs 5,000 lbs DRY W/ fuel and what not in boat your looking at almost 6000+ lbs on your trailer. Make sure weight is distubuted even across both axles. Too much weight on rear axle will over heat tires and.. well you know...
