...... my only insight would be to always move slowly and think carefully. There are a lot of
Nice fresh water boats available for the same price or less. Recently I have seen
2 Cape Dory 25d's that were both exellent, one with trailer for 17k and 20k, also a nice
Albin Vega for 14k, Contessa 26 with trailer for 15k (I was just too dumb to scoop that deal up)

If your interest is a MacGregor26 the truthful answer is you are (like many first timers, myself included) trying to discover how you really feel about the whole deal (its all ok) but 3 years from now or less you may find yourself moving from the M26 and by a full motorboat, a standard sailboat and thats ok too.

The main thing is you enjoy the m26 now and dont be afraid to let your feelings and opinons evolve.

But you know, its the journey thats the fun! And as always the fun part is the shopping !!

Happy sailing/motoring
