MacGregor 26 vs. ?
There are a lot of MacGregor user groups.
The first place to check might be www.macgregor-boats.com a site hosted by Bob White and which has links to a lot of other Mac sites.
Secondly, I''d recommend subscribing to Sailnet''s MacGregor List and the MacGregor 26X list. This is a hot email list, with a lot of MacGregor sailors (over 400 I think) who regularly contribute their thoughts.
Thirdly, check out www.moane.com which is the macgregor owners association of new england.
Generally speaking, the response you will get from these owners will be very informative. New or would-be owners are very welcome, and there''s a lot of real knowledge about both sailing and sailing in a water ballasted boat.
