Good, small cruising sailboat?

kestrel: do you mean the MacGregor 26X?

my first boat was an early 70s MacGregor 22; despite its resemblence to the Catalina 22 (which Ive never sailed, but being in the Benehuntalina category) it carried me over 3000 miles up and down the ICW, and brought me safely through weather I had no right being out in.

Ive been aboard the 26X at boat shows & was impressed, but never sailed one. They are water-ballasted motorsailors which can take up to a 50hp outboard, with very roomy interiors, but I couldnt say anything about the quality of construction, other than Id consider their 22 to be of average quality (Ive sailed and worked extensively on 3 of them)
