I still think the Mac/Venture 22 were the most fun to sail... I just stumbled on this post, so I know it was an older post. But if you double the bunk boards (2 pressure treated 2x6's on both side), they will work great. That is the 1st Mac 22 I have seen that has that cabinet on the port side... no doubt it was added by a previous owner. Overall you have a great find. And a tremendous bargain. I currently have a 87 mac 22, previously had a 85 mac 22 I had purchased new. The 85 was built better than the 87, and I suspect your older boat is like that as well. Also... my favourite improvement on my trailer was to boat a 10 ft 2x4 to each side starting where the bow fits into the rubber cushion (pulled out the 3-4 inch 3/8th bolt), they then connect to where the trailer straightens out (from the V it starts out as). A simple bolt through the frame rails at this point connects to the frame. (the 2x4 ends up insde the frame rail at this point.)

We towed our 'new' 1978 Mac 23' from Fla. to NC a few weeks back. She's belonged to my sister for years and years, but has been in a parking lot for the past 2 years. We got her all ready to bring home, with special attention to the wheel bearings... they held up just fine with lots of grease shot in several times during the trip... but we couldn't tell that the tires were dry rotted... we lost the rubber off one along I-95, and ended up replacing both.

I've been taking my time on the MacGregor. I spent most of my sailing time this summer on a Sunfish. I'm pulling out the cabinets that the previous owner added. He used particle board, and it's in bad shape. I'm replacing it with a bench/bunk. I've been replacing hardware, cleaning up the exterior wood, lubing the winches and other maintenance. I also patched the crack on the side. Currently, I am doing some repairs on the rudder. The last owner drilled holes, but didn't do anything to seal the inner wood from water. So, I am remedying that right now. I'll post some more pictures soon.
