Mike J. The original owner told me that design came to him in a dream..lolYour JC Express was a one of a kind. It had the best of both worlds. The boat was finished by Ron Leen. He did not use the JC Express top. Inside he purchased the full Casco Bay Hardtop & then cut it into an express. In doing do you get the nice full JC Cutty cabin along with the raised deck.
