I'm one of the 'gone', and the current "Mac 26M Owners bite back" which should be something about Mac 26 M's, but is really about how to control posting's is one reason I'm gone, or at least just lurking. Back in 1994 when I first joined the Mac bulletin board it was run by a professor out of Rochester University, it was active and we talked about Mac's. It was a lot of fun and grew like wildfire, so much so it overwhelmed the provider and was moved, the same group has now moved several times and landed here, to slowly decline. I expect because the Mac sailors don't know about this site, or have moved on to other sites like trailer sailors: Home - Trailer Sailors Association where the discussions tend to be more about sailing and trailering the boats.

Maybe they got tired of the pompous sailing elitist.

Some of them seem to be gone though.

But what do I know?

I am on this site from time to time. I live on Denman Island off Vancouver Island. If anyone wants to know about some nice little "Mac Only" type of anchorages around here let me know. We went up to the Broughton Islands last year. Wow ! That area is amazing. Great fishing and a lot of wildlife.

Slightly Gone

Hi All: I'm still here... I don't post that much unless there's a specific question I can help with, 'cause I sold my V22 five years ago (for a Montgomery 17). But you're right, there has been a steady and slow decline in this forum.

I'll check my website... I think I've got a link to this forum there, but it might be for an old address.

Best
