Re: Another Excalibur 26

Thank you very much.

Speaking of claustrophobic, in bad weather my wife and I have often slept in the cabin of our Victoria 18. Fortunately, I'm medium sized and she is small. The cabin is so small that when I bought the boat I thought it was just for tossing life preservers and lunch etc. into. Only after I had it home for awhile did I discover I could actually squeeze in there and sit up (barely) and lie down. Lengthwise there is plenty, you can slide your legs down the quarter berths, after shimming a small drop off with flotation cushions.

Re: Another Excalibur 26

Hi,

I have a 1966 Excalibur 26, and am also considering buying a new motor to fit in the existing motor well. Can you tell me if the Tohatsu 6 HP 4 Stroke you bought fit in the original motor well without modifications? I tried fitting a Honda 5 HP 4 Stroke with no luck.

Thanks, in advance!

JP
