Re: New and in need of advise.
you guys need what I have, a trailersailor.
macgregor being one of the better varieties of these, IMHO. they made many models, including the powersailor models of the last 15 years.
budget? for 1500-5000 you can find a lot of boats. condition is everything. check keel bolts especially.
I have a 1988 26D macgregor. big little boat.
how about a mooring? and a dingy, that's usually 1/3 the cost of a slip. then you could go much bigger.
