Re: A European Association...

The link to the UK organisation is not working. Is the UK organisation still active? :?:

Re: BWY custom steering

The custom steering link is really an improvement to our :macm: . Installation was quite simple, <90 minutes and the new steering was installed. Can really recommend this upgrade. :).

Re: BWY custom steering

The hesitation is over :!: Just ordered one, will let you know how it is to install and use when it arrives. No more taking a risk of going overboard when disconnecting the engine, that's what I am looking for.

BWY custom steering

I need a better steering linkage to the motor on my 2010 :macm: and have looked at the BWY custom steering. I'm hesitating :? because I don't know if it will fit my engine (Suzuki 15hp). If anyone has advice to give and/or experience to share I'd be delighted.

Re: Hey Soul Sister, ain’t that Mr. Mr. …

I couldn't have said that better my self! Mods are mods and not a reason to show off. A picture is really what is needed to explain what, how and why . The mods are the life blood of the MacGregor Sailors' site.

Re: Security on board, especially when overnighting

There arent pirate issues in NA that are worth the trouble of carrying heavy weaponry imho. If you feel more comfortable having a firearm on board, whatever floats your boat. I would rather buy more real boat stuff. I suspect keeping ammo and weaponry in good condition in the marine environment is ...

Re: steadying sail?

When you wrote with the hull thrashing and rolling back and forth were the waves hitting you dead on the bow, or abeam (sideways to the boat) :?: If abeam, there is not much you can do other than to turn into the big waves, keep the ballast full, and keep the centerboard down (be certain you are no...
