First sail boat...
I am looking at my first boat, completely new to sailing and am considering the the MacGregor 26 . Its appeal is the price and potential ease for a newbie to learn to sail on.
From trawling through the internet, I've noticed a consistent theme of how unsuitable it is to coastal waters. I plan to use the boat for my wife, small dog and I on weekend trips form Auckland here in NZ up around the Bay of Islands etc...
Be great to get thoughts on this, or possible other alternative boats around the 30ft mark...
