Re: High Sides

I agree with boat, i actually prefer to "reverse park" the boat, its a lot easier than trying forwards, i also run a bow line( outside the shrouds :) ) back to the helm, and have a stern line ready with it as well, , and i can step off in a dignified manner and simply snug the boat up! As for traile...

Re: Sliding galley

one of the first mods i did, besides resolving the unequal steering, was to change the galley hose, to its own thru hull, stop cock and a smooth bore hose, so that it drained better and didnt plug up with food debris. so now the motor well has its own drain hose, with a thru- hull in the motor well,...

Re: Where is everyone?

i love this forum, and always felt that we could all be honest about our beloved boats attributes and their shortcomings, after all every single boat is a compromise to some degree or other. i was on a Fb page and got banned cos i dared disagree with the admin about some point or other, that i cant ...

Re: 26M fuel tank

i am in the process of making an aluminum fuel tank that goes under the stern berth, in ali, with fill and venting to the outside, so no smells trying to get the weight lower, and free up some space in the cockpit. found plastic ones that would fit, but really didnt like the idea of them not being 1...

Re: transom mods and info please. new engine install.

so cant help with your other questions, but here is a pointer for transoms in general.
drill your hole through the transom oversize- then fill hole with epoxy, then when cured- redrill hole correct size- that way you get a good seal on any core material- and prevent water ingress and rotting.

26M ballast quantities

since the old macgregor web page seems to have been lost,
does anyone have the specs on the ballast for a :macm:
both the water and the solid ballast.

normally i would have just gone and looked that kind of info up on the old website.

many thanks in advance
