Re: macgregor or not to macgregor - lake michigan

I have some concerns about the build quality.

I saw one that had been on salt water for two weeks and had corrosion on the chainplates. Another, in a repair shed, has a cracks right through the fibreglass where the coaming joins the bulkhead. Both were X models.
