MacGregor, a great way to get into sailing
We bought our 26M in 2007 and sailed it for three season on Lake Michigan and inland WI lakes. Loved the boat and its versatility. Sold it last month and moved up to a bigger boat because my wife wants to do extended cruising on the Great Lakes.
Although it never bothered me, the MacGregor is a little tender and heals to, say, 20 degrees RIGHT NOW before it hardens up. This is due to a combination of the water ballast and narrow beam. The new boat has a 12.5 foot beam, a big keel and the Admiral is happy in a 25-30 knot blow.
