We love our '73 G26. Hull is number 583, NFS PHRF is 237, fabulous well built boat.
Check the chainplate fastening area to ensure the bulkheads are in good shape. Bulkheads on these boats should be replaced if there is any sign of water intrusion.
Our Tohatsu 9.8 extra long shaft fits perfectly in the rear transom cutout, and we have never had her come out of the water when going through heavy waves. We have had the engine under water though when a large following wave caught us. No problem on a G26 - self bails quickly, and no water goes below into the cabin.
