sailingdog Welcome to Sailnet. I'd highly recommend you read this POST to help you get the most out of sailnet.

If you had bothered to read the thread a bit more carefully, you'd realize that he bought a Hunter 260, as he states in POST 11, where he says:

3) I got a great deal at the Denver Boat Show on a new 2002 Hunter 260 that the dealer had to sell so he could get the 2003.
Please don't revive old threads, as this one is over six years old and should have been left there.

The Mac us niether fish nor fowl. Some Mac owners really like them, others that are into sailing sell them fast and cheap. You need to go sail a few othe boats and then compare what you like and what you don''t like. From a the standpoint of resale, I would opt for a Catalina.

MacGregor 26x - info needed plz

Time to put this post to bed! From reading the few replies I got here, and searching other web sites, my conclusion are: 1) Only Macgregor owners like the 26x. 2) Those owners have never sailed any other boat other than a Macgergor. 3) I got a great deal at the Denver Boat Show on a new 2002 Hunter 260 that the dealer had to sell so he could get the 2003. From all my research I believe I got the better end of the Stick (no pun intented). Thanks again to all of you here at Sailnet for your input! Blue Skies @ High Tides, Taylor

If you want a trailorable boat (and I''m happy with the Mac 26 sailboat, not the powersailor) you have a much wider range of places to buy it from since you can just trail it home from anywhere in the 48 states.
Except for the headroom and the size of the enclosed head, I like my Macgregor.

small foot note:
you can not get sea time towards a six pack by sailing in a Colorado lake.....
Good Luck

Compare the rig, i.e. mast, boom, shrouds, etc. on the MacGregor 26 with other boats. You will find it comparable to other boats about 18ft. in length. Hence, it will be VERY slow.

If you are only going to keep your next boat for a couple years, why don''t you look for an older, used production boat, like a Catalina or Hunter, in the range of 25-26 feet? Your capital outlay will be relatively small, maintenance will be nominal, the boat won''t depreciate much in two years, it will be relatively easy to sell, and you''ll have a boat that sails reasonably well.
