Just added another boat, 26' Express

Postby RiverRatt » Fri Nov 24, 2017 4:46 pm

My wife is not happy. I just bought a 1974 26'. I going to do the minimum to get it on the water. I want do see if we like it for quick trips. If we like it going to do a full restore. Maybe put a 400 SB Chevy Mercruiser manifolds in it i have.

What are the cruising speed to speed of a 26' Express, with the stock 318?

Is your spouse unhappy with your choice of manifolds or the cruising speed?
