Not really a lot of room to paddle around down there, but you do you.

Re: How Much Work Do These Need - CHEAP!

Thanks for the list, it is an eye opener, but I am interested in the actual structural integrity of the boat. I am interested in how much work would a $3,500 boat need to the hull, deck, rudder, centerboard, rig, hull fittings, chainplates, leaks, mast, transon, etc. so it can safely venture 2 mile...

Re: Lewmar winch maintenance

I too was watching a winch video without sound on and missed the possible mention of losing pawl springs! I lost two of the little buggers, but found one. I could get away with just a clean & lube of the winch, but now need to find the appropriate maintenance kit. My question is, are the pawl spring...

Re: Fiction: Lost in the Pacific

Something I don't understand about this character... He's suddenly free of marital entanglements and has a boat and classic pickup in San Diego, and he wants to kill himself? Why? That'd be like living the life of Riley! Also, isn't an AMT .380 backup a 5+1? How does he get eight shots? Oh wait, FIC...

How robust?...

Not nearly enough to survive several attempts at hauling out in the locked down position! Jus sayin'!

Re: Fiction: Lost in the Pacific

Remember, this is to be a work of FICTION. It doesn't need to reconcile all the possible technical / logistical possibilities. Feel free to create a story that is interesting and thought provoking, not just true-to-life accurate!

I guess it would have to be two half scoops.

Re: 26x Transom Extension / Addition - Each side added about 1 foot

On his webpage, Mighetto / s/v Murrelet had a picture and paragraph of a transom extension that Macgregor was supposedly testing but never offered. I also came across a pic of a Mac with a full transom width stainless steel / teak swim platform extended aft of the motor. I do think I recall seeing o...

Re: Assessment of Venture 23

Have you ever heard of someone converting a MacGregor to an open boat? I had an "outside the box" thought to... sail it as an open 23' cutter... Not a Mac, but it reminded me of a project, The Daysailor Project , whereas a 1960 Pearson Triton was transformed into an open cockpit daysailor. Tim Lack...

Re: Group buy Mac X or M trailer

Exactly what measurements for the :macx: are you looking for? Boat or trailer? My :macx: sits on a dual axle Sea Lion trailer plus I have the original Mac steel trailer.

Re: Onboard shoes

99% of the time, I prefer barefeet on my :macx:. Crocs are second, if required for going ashore. I always have sailing boots onboard if the foul weather is too cold and wet. For boat shoes, I used to wear the simple canvas boating sneakers like my grandfather used to. For those, I found that after a...

I'm old, but not that old,... I had to Google it!

"seeing the elephant" signified a quest for satisfactions in disreputable quarters."
