  • Boat Type: 712 N Lucas Drive, Grapevine, GRAPEVINE, MacGregor 26S, Boat Type

Secure single point-of-release hold-down for batteries.

Model Year: 94
Photo Caption: Plywood platform supports batteries, C-shaped gray bar is held in place with a wing nut and bolt that passes through wall into head compartment. Makes for easy removal. Not intended to be fully capsize proof, but addition of additional tubing over the top would work for that, I would imagine.
