I have owned my MAC 19 for 3 years. I sail on Lake Seneca NY which can get big winds and water. The 650 foot depth creates cold water and a lot of horizontal momentum. 3 foot waves dictate that the boat be kept on a lift, which plays well with water ballast. I have added some features like roller furling and autopilot and made countless modifications to existing equipment. I try to eliminate 1 annoyance after each sail. For example, the hatch cover weighs a ton and the latch will hold it in place only until you put your head under it. I stow the hatch on the dock and carry a slick little temporary cover I made out of 1/2 inch pvc tubing and heat shrink wrap.(this cover held up fine in a super-squaw I hit this summer, pictures upon request). The access to the water ballast valve on the transom is my next modification.
I also installed a stand-up block on the cabin sole to allow centerboard manipulation from the cockpit. With these additions, I usually sail with my harness on, tied off to the mast, sitting or standing near the mast with the auto-pilot engaged. I wouldn't want to sail her to tahiti, but for weekends, it is a pleasure to sail. MacGregor should start making these again.
