Re: Does any other Mac 26 have these cables exposed?

Considering all the mods I have done, I have yet to figure out a better way to run those cables from the pedestal. The best I could do is just to get them hung as close to the ceiling as possible.

Re: Mac19

Hi, I used to own the Mac19 for about 8 years... and I always launched with the rudders down... I had the factory trailer. Is your trailer not factory? You could probably just lift the back bunks up to get the clearance you need. Try using plastic bolts (from lowes or home depot) for the break-away ...
