More sots of our Mac...

Oh yeah, don't pay attention to what many say about the quality of Macgregors, most of it is pure recycled BS by people who have only heard this or that. I've been on MANY boats and there is nothing wrong with the quality of any of the Macgregors as long as they are used for their intended purpose of sailing in fairer weather, although we did push the envelope more than once including getting caught in some pretty serious weather, she did just fine. Boats are a lot like motorcycles, the machine can usually handle way more than the operator. If they had built a mid 30's boat I would have definitely put it on the short list when we were shopping.

BTW in the pictures you may notice that the forward bulkhead and head door is removed from the head compartment, that was removed for more space, I'm sure you know what I mean. That bulkhead is non-load bearing and can be removed. DO NOT remove the bulkhead at the sink! That IS load bearing and supports mast load (Pretty important).
