Re: macgregor 22
I had a Mac 22 for a bit, it sailed ok. I don't think it's as bad as it's reputation. Once I had the rig tuned up properly and got a decent set of sails the thing sailed just fine.
The thing to look out for on these, is the swing keel. If it's showing signs of rusting out it's a pretty big job to strip down to bare metal and reseal.
