What is your best sailing speed in 15 to 20 knots of wind for the :macx: and the :macm: ? So far I have averaged 5.5 to 6 broad reach and 4.5 to weather in flat protected water

This sort of thing is very interesting to me + you could sail on the Black sea and then up the Dneiper river. 8)

Has anybody any experience, is it possible to patch these cracks in a way that it is stable and not visible after repair?

Thanks for any suggestions and feedback.

Re: Where to buy Mac 26M in Europe or better import from US?

I understand, but if wishes were horses, then beggars would ride, nicht whar? The X is very similar to the M, except the cabin is smaller and the cockpit is larger(preferable for many people). The head is bigger and in a better location for many people. :wink: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJuRomD...

Re: New Engine Advice for the 26X

I'd certainly go with a good engine with good local support.

A plan B consideration. One thing I like about my 50HP Merc, is that it has a "pull start" capability that I hope I never need, but (like a spare tire) it's nice to know it's there.

Re: MX-5: The Throne Room

Where could I buy a replacement "short" table for a 97X? So what goes in that little space where the dinette table was? I might consider reversing your layout to move the head into that spot and leave open the seat where you show the head now. Reason being that that spot is kind of nice to have open...

Re: Mac 26's will apparently work nicely in European canals

ME TOO. i'm thinking it could be a pretty neat vacation. Lot's of rivers and canals in Europe. The Danube in particular, etc. 8) Plan B - a POC to rent a boat in Europe to do the canals. Wonder what would the options be getting my Mac to/from Europe???? Don't think I'd be willing to sail it over. :D...

Re: 26X closed cell matress pads?

Fair question. There are blue (I suspect cheap) foam pads under the cusions now (they came with the boat) Saw on a livaboard youtube video (highly ranked) that they recommended replacing any existing cheap foam pads under any cusions with higher quality closed cell pads. Makes sense to me, the curre...

Re: Battery

Ditto, except I have a Genius thingy 8) OP, If I(we) haven't scared you off and you're like I was starting out, I'd say... go to Walmart, car parts store, etc and get an inexpensive starter battery, and an inexpensive deep-cycle RV/Marine battery.

Re: New to sailing need boat advice

It tends to be a buyers market in the winter and a sellers market in the Spring. :wink: I think I can get this boat for under 5k and after replacing lines and rigging and adding a plotter and a couple of non essential modifications I will add another $1500. Its the outboard that is my dilemma, do I ...
