I have currently have a Laser 28 but I have wanted to move up to the express for some time. If you run into one for sale at a fair price please let me know.

I do not know of any for sale in the country it this time. When they pop up they do not last long.I may move on to something else in a year or two the Farr 39.5 or the J120 look like interesting choices.

How long have you owned your boat and what is her name? I may know her. There were very few Mk2 (or ''C'' models as the Mk2''s were called at first).

I purchased the Boat in Westport Conn 3 years ago,It that time the name was named Scorpion. Their is a dark green stripe about 18'' wide down the side. I was told it was the last one build hull number #42061 with a 1988 manufactors date. I have up dated the boat some since then.

Hi Express

I had always heard that the last two Express 37''s were ordered out of Annapolis. One of these two boats was "Pirate Twin" which was heavily customized including a custom laminate, custom open transom cockpit with winch islands and a custom Keel and rudder. The other was on the Bay for a long time but I have not seen her around. Both boats raced in the SORC and did pretty well with Pirate Twin getting beaten on corrected time by her less cusomized sister. I understand that Pirate twin has been further customized into a single-handed distance racer.

Nice boats just the same.
Regards
Jeff

Jeff H in a bigger boat! I knew it.

I rafted with a Express 35 in Block Island a few years ago. What a beautiful boat. It looks like it''s going 8 knots all the time.

I think they draw quite a bit. But heck it sails.

There may be 2 different 35''s I rafted with the best one of course.

The Express 37 is covered in Marshall''s Guide to Production Sailboats. I see it has a tiller. It displaces 9,500 lbs, draws 7''3" has a ballast/displ ratio of 47.4% and a sailarea/displ ratio of 22.77 WOW.

Actually the Express 35 is a Canadian boat designed by Steve Killing and is not especially fast with a rating of PHRF rating of 114.

The Express 37 is a California built boat designed by Carl Schumacher design with a rating of 72 which is not too bad for a 37 footer.

The Express 35 is reasonably well built. The Express 37 demonstates a quality of glass work that I have never seen anywhere. It may not be as glitzy as a Hinckley but Hinckley could learn something from the Alsberg Brothers when it comes to quality glasswork.

Cheers
Jeff

If I find a ex 37-2 I will tell you about it.

There may have been 2 Express 35''s. One was very light.

I sure wish J boat''s would hire an artist. A functional thing does not have to be ugly.

Good luck
