All those thousands of owners can't all be wrong! I don't regret buying one and today I am thankful that it is sitting in my driveway as opposed to costing me in a slip, the weather has been terrible so far this year and few if any sailors have had time on the water this season. These boats sell well for many reasons!
Damn, he heard me...
And I was trying to be so quiet...
While I am not a big fan of the MacGregors, they do suite some sailors quite well. Then again, there are a few who own the same boat I have and have outfitted it with a 50 HP outboard, and can do 15 knots WOT... but that isn't something I would be interested in... For me, sailing is more about the journey than getting to the destination quickly.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
