defrich Hello GF I bought a 26M last fall and sail it from Port Jeff. Enjoy it greatly.
If however , the main draw is having a decent power train: you should note that the rule of thumb ( please don't anyone go 'British History' on the origins of 'rule of thumb' ) is; a reccommended mimum of one hores to one foot. Ergo; 26 footer should have a minimum of 26 hp aux power. If you want to goose her for what ever reason, then the 60hp on my transom will get her moving ( I have clocked 16.5kts on a windless day ). I normally only use the aux for putting up and taking down the main.
We got the boat for the ability to trail and store. ( I can work on little things by going out to my back yard and tinker.

smackdaddy Hey gf - welcome to SN dude. Go find the MacGregor boat thread and you'll find some fans. A dude named Kermie can give you some good feedback.

New Sailor

Hi glad to be here retired from the FDNY and have owned eight power boats over the last twenty years had my first sailing lessons in Aug (asa 101) and loved it. My question is does anyone here own a power sailor (MacGregor Oden or Hunter Edge) I like the Idea of having a motor in case I am Needed or bad weather Thanks
