Name: Catherine Pearl
Location: Courtenay, Vancouver Island, British Columbia
Details: 1974 Express Cruiser 26'. In 2003, was literally "gutted". 2002 Merc Horizon 300 HP EFI engine with a BW 1:1 Velvet Drive tranny. New 75 Gal Fuel Tank, 30 Gal Water Tank, new HW tank, new steering & wiring. She swings a 14"x10" LH prop with a moderate cup. 6-7 GPH @ 18-20 KN. She is the best in a head sea, good in a beam sea, and slightly tender in a following sea where she is happier being up on plane. All in all, better than anything new on the market in its size and beam.
