Would the BIG FAT WIND BAG be Giu???

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Some people simply have no taste and exchanged a boat for an RV....

Cam...you no longer qualify for "nautical" jokes....please go to RVnet.com, your new hobby and post there, thank you.

I bet you will be a sucess, talking about knots, wide transoms, and big sticks...them RV folks will think you're popular, you'll fit right in, just don't pick up the soap...boy!!!!

Ahh, one more thing....don't get lost in the Mountains near Georgia, you've got a Purdy Mouth...know what I mean??? And them Hillbillies are horny, they love sailors.....

LOL,, I know,, I was just trying to help a brutha out.
If I put the mast from my Sunfish in the hole for the bass seat in my Glastron, would it be a sailboat? Be right back.............

What is the problem? Don't you get positive comunication here??

We all joke with each other, and so that you relax, I get way more slag just by being me, (an extremely good looking very good sailor), than I see these guys giving the Mac people....

If you can't joke, learn....its cool and fun....

I am starting to believe that "boat sensitivity" now is spelled MAC...

McGregor 26

I have a friend who is happy with his Mac. 26. It has a big outboard and can cruise at +15 knots. BUT: it does not sail as well as most typical sail boat of that size. It's a compromise: good sailing vs. power boat performance. He only uses his genoa to sail as it is over-powered with the main.
I have a Hunter 26 that sails very well. I carry 2000# of ballast water and it hardly ever heels over 35 degrees. It is trailerable, comfortable with a roomy cockpit, and fairly well built. BUT: it doesn't cruise at +15 knots. 6 knots from a boat of this size is the best you'll do most of the time. I don't have anything really bad to say about the McGreggor. It's a matter of taste as to whether you prefer sailing or motor-cruising. The Hunter has a 9' beam and a wide, comfortable cockpit.
Call if you have questions: 252-633-9237.

Technically, I think that would be a trimaran. Is that the Teignmouth Electron?

What cracks me up is when someone says Mac, they always think of the 26X/M winniebago. While this old thread was specifically about the 26X, there are many other Mac's out there.

Goose, what kind of Mac do you have? I have a '76 Venture 21.

Speaking of MacGregors, my boat was sitting next to one when I went down to the marina today. The spar for the boom on my 28' trimaran is a heavier spar than the mast on the MacGregor 26. That is very worrying... doesn't say much for the sailing performance of the Mac.
