Sorry I didn't realize the this was just about the 26. It was not my intention to hijack this thread. Just thought it was to learn more about the Macgregor. Think I'll find a more friendlier forum that this one seem to be.

Good bye.

Catalina and Hunter (and others) have water ballasted sailboats that sail much better than the Macgregor. You can also get a keel boat with shoal draft as well - but obviosly not as low as a lifting centerboard, and with some trailerability problems. These would be a better choice for anyone who wants to "sail", or learn to sail, although I'd be leaning to a keel if you're in the beginning of the learning process.
