Re: MacGregor 26 vs. ?

You are looking for opinions.

I looked at one, brand new 26X, I was far from impressed. The very first thing I noticed was that the chainplates where such low quality stainless that they where rusting and staining the topsides.. on a brand new boat FFS.

There are other options. A hunter 260 will move along nicely with a small outboard and still be a decent "sailboat" that you can keep on a trailer. Perhaps the 26S would be another option, but, I don't have an opinion on that because I've never been on one.
