MacGregor 26x - info needed plz
I''m interested in buying 1998 26x. This is the motor/sail version. It has a 50 hp outboard, water balast, with center board. Since dealers will not give accurate info and everthing I read about this boat on the internet is mostly from them, I turn to you for more accurate info. This boat will be docked in a Colorado mountain lake for the summer weekend use. I like the headroom and space offered in this boat. My question to anyone - How well does this boat sail. I am aware of the trade off factors in sailboats, obviuosly this boat will not sail like other sailboats. But I am not interested in the motor end of this boat (but it could come in handy). This style boat will definetly sail differently with is flatter bottom. But that could make it sail faster too. If any one could give me any info in the sailing ability of the MacGregor 26x I would greatly appreciate it. Thank You!
