I cannot reply to private messages until I post 5 times so this is #2. I also tried to upload 2 little pictures but couldn't. 36 foot MacGregor Catamaran in excellent condition for sale and fully equipped to take off. A lot of boat for little money and everything is included. Here is the description when I bought her plus I added new sails, trailer new tramp ,new rudders.

* UK Main sail, 150% Genoa (original spec in new condition) with Harken Furling, oversized Spinnaker
* Garmin 152 GPS, Garmin 220 fishfinder, Standard VHF, Sony Stereo/CD with amplifier
* 4 Raytheon ST60 instruments on mast (speed, wind, apparent wind, multi)
* Autohelm 2000 (2 years old) plus remote control

Here are a few bits of general information I've found on the Mac 36 from various sources on the web:

Owners Manual: https://www.box.net/shared/lyqqs8j12c

Multihulls Magazine review of the Mac 36: https://www.box.net/shared/f31upvlzhq

Sailing tips: https://www.box.net/shared/f31upvlzhq

From the MacGregor catalogue: https://www.box.net/shared/sgj06dtu83

I would appreciate any other resources that people know of.

Macgregor 36 Still For Sale?

Are those Macgregor 36's still in Racine? Any for sale?

In my oppinion they were before there time. With some modern sails and very slight rigging adjustments, they can reach 22+knots easily. Hang on!
I added UK Tape Drive Sails. Floats on the top are for the fearful not a stock item. They are trailorable but do not recomend. Mine is fully loaded from the factory. For the money you won't find anything better.
Alot of these boats were flipped in the beginning for lack of knowledge of what a "GIANT" beach cat can do for the times. So there are not many left. You have questions I would love to answer them.
My perticular boat has great history of many victories form Galveston Texas, to Florida and beyond. The original Captain quite a single handed sailor. Now though, day sailing in the Great Lake of Michigan. Yacht Club Members always ask me how long it takes me to sail from port to port. I crossed Lake Michigan in 5 hours.
I did almost flip it in the summer of 2007, but my 18' Hobie Cat experience saved the boat and 8 on board. We were flying a hull from Racine to Kenosha when a gust hit and took her up to the edge. Bailed the Main and turned into the wind, down she came. Crew hanging from the life lines like flags. This boat is a RUSH!

macgregor cat modification

My Mac 36, "bought the ticket"
located in San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico.
After trailering it from Phoenix to Albuquerque behind a six cylinder SUV , we removed it from the trailer (with great difficulty) for an upgrade.

Wanting a solid walkable, but light deck, I built a 150 pound removable hard deck.
The deck has 3 -4 x 10' honey comb core fiberglass panels for deck flooring . They ride on galvalume stringers between mid and rear tubes.
I mounted a helm for wheel steering and motor control from a bar stool near the rear tube. That spot lets me control the sail or motors from one spot.

For the cat to be comfortable in the Sea of Cortez, shade is necessary.
To get that shade I raised the boom up to 6.5 feet above the deck -

A tube frame holds the 8x10 sunbrella bimini below the boom above the deck where we sit in lawn chairs .

Lost 10 sq ft of main sail at the top of the mast to the modification, but it still sails 18 kts.
With two bigfoot 15 hp outboards it motors at 10 kts .

Accomodations are primitive- we sleep on an airbed we blow up on the deck, cook on the barbie, and use the porta-pottie when necessary.

It is not a cruiser yet, just a great day sailing and camping boat. The deck size and the speed makes these "Hobie Cats on steroids" an outstanding boat

Thumbs up

It sounds like you have done some really nice mods. I especially like the idea of a bimini with standing room over the hard deck. That's exactly what my Mac needs. I would love to see any photos you have.
