This reminds me of the Harley vs. Godwing debate.
I don't care what you ride as long as you are a true biker!In the same vain, I don't care what you sail as long as you are a true sailor willing to help others sail.
And yes, I now own a M26.. It's exactly what we need right now. I have owned other makes. We are land locked and need to travel.to dive sights. The M26 has plenty of room for gear, is easy to trailer and launch and can traverse shallow areas.
It fits our needs economicaly and we can enjoy sailing at the same time.
