Re: Photos - Summer 2019

JimmyT it doesn't seem like that far on google earth but when you zoom in it looks like a decent size island to loop around. Nice pics, thanks for sharing.

I found Mac T-Shirts!

Stumbled on this in the interwebs. https://maritimetees.net/search?q=Macgregor+

They have a 26S and a 26M T-Shirts. I'm not affiliated nor asking for a group purchase. Just thought it was cool to be able to get my boat on a shirt :P

Re: Mast Raising Alterations 26M

I will keep hoping that the Mac Engineering Team here finds a better solution because I doubt I will come up with anything :) Did you have your raising stays attached at the stanchions? Yikes! I'm surprised your gin pole brackets didn't collapse. Bottom line, you've got to keep the mast virtually o...

Re: Mast Raising Alterations 26M

I have been reading this thread with great interest because I thought my mast raising pole might be broken. It sounds like it behaves like everyone else's. The most concerning mast raising event I had was in a slip. I was by myself and the mast started to swing to port as I was raising it. It was ab...

Re: Onboard shoes

I got a pair of Sperrys that I used in sailing class and on a rental boat. They were comfortable and non-slip. When I started looking for non-marking I tried a set but they were not rubber based so were a major slip hazard. Non-marking and rubber is the way to go. On my Mac i tend to wear the water ...

Re: Any one heading for the Seattle Boat Show?

Sounds like a great time. I suppose a great way to make an IP seem affordable is to immediately look at a 13.5 million dollar yacht :!: :D
I have spent many hours trolling IPs for sale on yacht world.

Re: Wheel Brake

I have that on my boat and I always thought it might be broken because it would not lock the wheel. Now that I am hearing that it is a friction only and not a full lock it makes more sense on how it works. I cannot say that I like it because it takes a lot of tightening just to get it to do a fricti...

Re: Mission bay to San Diego bay and back in a day.

It's amazing to me that the sailors that are land locked in the middle of the southwest (guys like you and sumner and other mac owners I have met from Arizona) are the most adventurous of them all - it's like you guys sail your boats EVERYWHERE except at home where there is no water! I want to see ...

Re: Photos - Summer 2019

Here's my favourite place I visited this summer (so far, still summer here), it is south Moreton Island, Queensland Australia, a place called the big sand hill. My boat is in the middle of the second picture, the water is soooo blue and sand is sooo white, even better than the pictures. https://dri...

Re: Any interest in a Mac burgee for your boat.

I would pay $30 for one if it had a pic of a Mac doing 15 knots with a huge wake behind it. Maybe black, blue and white to represent the primary colors of the flag background. Of course, as everyone knows, the black racing stripes are waaaaay cooler than a blue hull. :D

Re: Photos - Summer 2019

I appreciate everyone sharing. Ours didn't touch water last year so it is nice to see the adventures. I am motivated to get spring chores done early so I can focus on the boat! :macm:
