Tatoo yachts vs macgregors

From mac sailing pages... I just discovered that Roger`s son is takng over the bussiness nd moving to florida.. Changing he name to tatoo .. I checked the website, the 26 looks the same and it looks like thier buildiing a also making a 22` motorsailer that can hande a 50 hp motor and speeds of 20 knots under power..

I thought I was done with sailing, (health problem) Maybe.
But the 22 sure looks good, an a big improvemnt over the Mac 19`

The Tatoo 22 is a boat that will get under your skin...and make an indelible impression...a stain on the brain, so to speak...

Is that good or bad.. Any reasons not to buy one, MIght take a year ot two to get one.The Mac 19X just didnt seem big enough for cruiseing

I owned a mac 26x.. it was not a vey good SAilboat compaired to other boats, But with the 50 hp motor I actually sailed a lot more and traveled to further ports.. The15 knot motoring can spoil you.
I used the spinaker quite a bit. With an empty ballast tank. and 20 mph wind i crossed lake Erie in less than 5 hours, Surfing on 3`-4` waves. My gps was showing bursts of 11 knots at times.. i doubt it would hit 11 knots with a full ballast tank, maybe 7 knots.

One of my favoite t tricks, was to motor out into the wind at full speed for 2 hours. Stop put up the spinaker are Sail/surf back.

Sure glad I didn't drive to the Annapolis Boat show.. Tatto yachts didn`t bring a 22` to the show.. Just their 26 motorsailer..

Maybe I`ll se it at the Cleveland boat show. Maybe?
