Re: replacing single rope clutch with double---how do you access bolts in head cabin top?

Hi Herschel Great idea on the double clutch! Mind if if copy it? With our adding our new traveler pulley system for our swing keel lift line now would be the perfect time to add a clutch set so we can more easily secure this line. On our 2001 Max26X there is a round cutout in the top aft face of the...

Re: urgent: storage of stuff and saltwater

Hi All! Yes, I agree, our MacGregors can be very dry boats if there aren’t any topside leaks! 8) 8) At the same time I believe we can all agree that topside leaks can and do occur… and should be addressed when possible. When water incursions do occur, for whatever reason, it’s still nice to have an ...

Re: New Option for Portable Boat Air Conditioning!

Hi All! One of the recurrent comments is that the sun on the uninsulsted top deck heats the cabin (quite effectively from personal experience!) We whole heartily agree! :D :D There is a relatively easy solution that we’ve utilized during the heat of the day which is to stretch a sheet or tarp out ov...

Re: urgent: storage of stuff and saltwater

We use a matching set of various sized clear plastic bins with clip lock overlapping lids from Lowe’s. Small ones can be used independently or placed with larger ones as desired to stay organized. Sized to fit into aft berth in two rows with an open row space between them for accessibility. We can u...

Re: Polyester epoxy resin.

Hi Warfin! Boy! That must have been a real task un jamming your swing keel! Sheesh! :| :| :? :o From a 2 cent perspective I could see wanting to protect the leading edge from direct impact damage to the fiberglass, especially if I were in rocky waters with hidden or poorly charted submerged rock str...

Re: New Option for Portable Boat Air Conditioning!

Just sayin’ … when the humidity is up and the temps are high even a few degrees drop and a bit less humidity feel REAL nice! 8) 8) So while there are no perfect answers there are valid options out there to be explored. Duration of anything battery operated depends upon the capacity of the battery or...

Re: Aft berth, stowage, ventilation

Hi NiceAft! Just to be clear, We Like your portals and your good judgement of how you operate. No criticism there at all. Getting some cross ventilation in the cabin must be nice without having to open the fwd hatch. We’ve seen soon portals with built-in bug screens too! Kinda hard to have an effect...

Re: Aft berth, stowage, ventilation

Hi Trswem! Air circulation is a really good idea! Memory foam is open cell so air “slowly” moves in and out of the foam when somebody/thing compresses or decompresses the foam. So moisture definitively will get into the foam The surface area of memory foam is HUGE so the entering moisture will wick ...

Re: Polyester epoxy resin.

Hi Warfin Original boat construction was done with polyester resin…. That was back in 1999 :wink: That a few years back in history and if there were any POs then there may have been prior repairs accomplished that may or may not have been with polyester &/or epoxy resin. There is no simple non d...
