Day Sailing 36 Mac Great Lakes

Yup, its a little tight below for sleeping but plenty of room for Galley 1 side and nav station on the other. A binimi? Google MacGregor Catamaran 36 and
you will find all kinds of changes that others have made to the boat. I do recall seeing a binimi on a couple. Portable head slides out of sight. Do the Gooogle thing and you'll answer all your questions. I cruise up and down the Wisconsin and Illinois side and occasionally do a crossing to Michigan. Splash on the Sun tan lotion is all I can say. This boat is perfect for the Great Lakes. Very sea worthy. Enjoy, Kurt

I am also considering a purchase of a Mac 36. Does anyone know of one in the LI Sound area that I could get a look at, just to see the layout and get an idea of the proportions?

There is a 36' Mac Cat forsale in Racine Wisconsin. Asking $18,000
It's in great shape. You need standard pontoon trailor to move it.
Seller's name, Tom. 630-307-3069 Tell him Kurt sent you.

Thanks for the info. I am not ready to buy yet, I am just exploring the possibility of getting a boat that better meets my sailing needs. Most of my time on the water is an afternoon or evening sail with an occasional overnight. I am looking for a boat that is exciting to sail that I can afford. The Mac 36 and Stiletto 30 seems to fit this bill.

harrier—

If you're looking into catamarans in that range, you should also look at the Catalac 8/9/10M, the Iroquois, the Prout Snowgoose, the MaineCat 30, the TomCat 30 and the Gemini 105Mc.

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.

These are all good recommendations but they don't have the speed that I am looking for. I would love to be able to sail in the teens, kind of like in my Hobie years (without flying a hull). I currently own a Iroquois 30 which is a good strong boat, great for cruising. She performs well for her type of design. But she was built heavily which limits her top end. I am also seeking a demountable to be able to bring it home for the winter.

Bigger is Better

I have my 36' up to 12 knots plus quite often. The later Mac Cats are a lot lighter then the earlier ones, A LOT LIGHTER. 2-4 on board and keep her light and you'll be getting there fast. Stiletto? All I can say is try to go for a ride first. And also, Bigger is Better...

You might also look at the R33 catamaran. The Reynolds R33 is designed to be trailerable, and rates a -80 PHRF.

When the Reynolds 33 first came out, it was offered at a reasonable price. Now it's way beyond what I can afford, even used. Whatever I can get for my Iroquois is what I have available. Because the accomodations are only in the hulls, Stiletto 27's seem to be very tight inside. I haven't seen a Stiletto 30 interior, so I don't know how much the extended bunks at deck level help open it up. I tend to agree that the Mac 36 is a good size, but I am concerned about how easy (and safe) it is to singlehand.
