Re: Why all the fuss about mcgregor 26's

I have owned a MAC 26M and found it very comfortable...and it has proved safe...but it is NOT an ocean goer...
Very good for shallow water operations, as I took mine places that had never seen so large a yacht in so shallow an area...
I found the mast too tall...and too lightly rigged.
should be 7 metres and double the gauge of the shrouds...if you go ocean at all...
What it has is for speed...and it will never be a speed machine.
Make the changes and keep your family safe.
