You know you guys are never happy

Someone said EVERYTHING is trailerable. I'd like to NOT be stuck behind that going down the road.

Tattoo = MacGregor.

If you are buying a Mac, this is the one you want.

There are a few Tattoo 26's. A few Hunter 26's and Hunter Edge, the Odin, an Oz knock-off. They all tend to be few in number.

Had one and every time we see one, it brings back great memories. It was easy to trailer, easy to sail and required very little wind to get it moving nicely. It was a great fit at the time and kicking on the engine to cruise at 13 knots meant we were able to make weekend trips work with our teenager's schedule.

Now we cruise our 36' sailboat to the Keys and Tortugas as it meets our needs for two week cruises. Next, I suspect around 45' for much longer cruising.

Happiness is having the boat that meets your needs.

s2 7.9, but you cannot waterski behind it. But it does surf, and sails REALLY well, even upwind

Re: MacGregor 26 vs. ?

I have been thinking about getting one. There's a small lake about 15 minutes from my house where I keep my current boat in a slip and a much larger lake about 45 minutes south. There are 5 other large lakes within driving distance of my house that I would enjoy boating on. Is there a better option for something I can comfortably stay on for the weekend that I can also trailer easily?

Re: Don't hate me for the revival

The 26X and 26M have full headroom.

26X has a bigger cockpit, the 26M has a bigger cabin.

There really isn't a Mac 26.

There IS a Mac 26D, 26S, 26X, 26M
