itatae is on a distinguished road
The Macgregor 26c has a 6 foot long centerboard. It goes up inside the hull. The advantage is trailering and because the centerboard is relatively long, it does go upwind quite well - behaves like a big Dinghy. The disadvantage is that it is tender in its steering. If you have a long deep keel it is easier to keep a boat going in a straight line.
