Another Macgregor 26S inquire

We have been looking for a sailboat with a cabin that we can spend the weekend on. We started with a Catalina 22 and decided they were too small in the sleeping area. We went to a Catalina 25 and I have just decided that they are too heavy and require a greater water depth to launch than is available some of the places we want to go. I think we need a Macgregor 26S to do what we want to do that is in our price range. I have read several articles about the boat and some are negative and some love the boat. I think I understand that they are made inexpensively and are subject to problems. I would like to here from some 26S owners as to the problems they have experienced and what we can expect. There are several for sale but they are all hundreds of miles away.

Thanks for you input.
