    Buddy had a 26' Caribbean DC with a 454/jet combo. Boat was too large for that combination, also from riding inside in rough water hull seemed to flex or move around somewhat Really did like the lines though.

    Default 26 caribbean

    I have a 1978 26 caribbean in Jacksonville, Fl. Had it for almost 15 yrs. Twin 260 Mercruisers. Edelbrock intake and aluminum log exhaust. It is a heavy boat but if it was going to break it would have by now. Got it to 58.5 but don't need to blow a motor or drive. Oldest couple with the oldest boat at the annual Toys for Tots in Palatka. Good luck !
