Express 37 Mk2

There is only one Express 35 that I know of which was Goman Express''s (the Canadian Express) attempt at a competitor to the J-35. Both boats weight 10,500 lbs which was quite light in its day. The original literature listed a mk 1 Express 37 as 8500 lbs. The keel was increased when the Tall rig bringing the weight of a Mk 1 up to 9500 lbs. The ''C''s'' and Mk 2''s were generally listed at 10,500 but supposedly actually weighed in at less. The wheel steering added over 200 lbs with the cockpit changes required so most of the Mk2''s that went to the Chesapeake did not have wheels nor the cockpit lockers.
