There are a good number of these boat owners on the board . 25'- 48' . I have an 88 39' . I call it an express cat but it is actualy an "Image" . Do a search on this board for "express cat" or "ocean express" .

Just spoke with Ross Jr. He said the boat is a 31' sold to a guy in Finland who put two V8's on it....... Email or call him. Good luck!! By the way, with those motors with the right props ,cleaver 4 blades( stern lift),instead of those 'bunny ears' you should see 100+mph. With the current props spinning out I think more like 80-90 something. Ross also told me they never shipped a boat with props spinning OUT ('squirrelly up top'), they prefer spinning 'em in, I know 'll catch-it from T2x............. But that's what Ross told me. Also from the pic, I can't see if you have Hyd. external steering, although it might have sea-star which has rams at the front of the motor, not sure if thats strong enough though, maybe someone here knows about that?

Adam Focht goes by the name "CATBLDR" on the board. Here's a great thread on Ocean Express cats.

Thank you all,
get today a email from ocean express. He wrote me that he build it and now I know everything about the boat. Now I check out mikas Link. But now zhere is anotherquestion. Ross told me the boat was build with a balssa core. Do you think I get trouble with the sandwich the boat is build 1990 ? So if the bals get wet it will rott away what do you think?

Only if it were cracked, and not repaired. Check particularly the transom at the thru-holes, deck fittings. From the factory they were sealed with 3m 5100, it's when a hole is made subsequently and not sealed, that causes problems down the road hopefully all holes were sealed at rigging. You can use a moisture meter available at most home centers, if you do-it-yourself. Otherwise be sure to have it surveyed structurally for your own peace of mind. I can tell you as an owner of one of Fochts' hulls you will be very happy and satisfied!
