Captain Jim !! I have a mac26x with a 70 HP Nissan outboard since 1998 .The extra HP is great when you need it , such as high winds , heavy current or trying to outrun a storm to get back to the marina . However most of the time I just use the motor to get out into Lake Erie then sail for the rest of the day .The heavier motor does not help sailing . It is too much weight in the stern . I don't know about the 26m but I suspect that you will waste your money on a bigger motor . Ken
