Our first family boat was/is a 1992 Mac 26 swing centerboard water-ballast boat. In the mid 1990s, MacGregor switched from making the "Classic" Macs to the 26X Powersailer, the one that can take a 50 hp engine. The X has a higher freeboard and more room inside, including the famous dinette. Then, just several years ago, Mac switched to the M, which can still take a big motor.
We're slowly getting around to fixing and selling our Mac in New Mexico; it's served us pretty well but we now sail on an Etchells (giant racing dinghy) and may be getting a bigger cruising boat in the next year.
