Re: Why all the fuss about Macgregor 26's

I'm ex-army, I have a Mac 26X and I'm very happy with it.

uite a few traditional ailors really don't know the actual strength of fiberglass (long weave). Quite a few Maca on the Great lakes and the east and west coast.

Having written that, they are "day sailors" not blue water cruisers.

Suggest you pay for a god survey before buying and have fun on the lakes before you get the right boat for the Caribe. Good luck!
