Sorry Goose... I couldn't resist... It's not like MacGregors or Catalinas are actually sailboats...

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.

ROTFLMAO

Funny you should say that, my Mac is now unsailable because of all my rigging problems. Not a sailboat, indeed.

Hey Goose-

At least you gots that nice 50 HP outboard to putter around the lake with, and you can leave the regular monohulls in your wake...

not a chance, I have the old school Mac. Remember, the "shippy" looking one? My 6 horse Johnson is more than I need.

Know what you are talking about. I grew up with a '69 mac 26 that we would sail on woodward. Thanks for the pics of the area. Great memories!

Ah... not the spaceship looking one... the new MacGregors bear a distinct resemblence to scale models of cruise ships...with that strange double row of ports...

Now here's a boat I have never seen.....is that the new Mac?? I only knew the grey ones..from 1990's..

I think I like it....(the deck) looks modern....and aerodynamic....don't like the sails though....specially where the genoa sheets are...and the rear...but you need that for the engine...
What is the black box?? a wheel column??

This boat does not look that bad....

The new Macs do bear a slight resemblance to some megayachts . . .



Just squint your eyes and imagine it being 400 feet.
