26M changes by year 2003-2013?

Hi, I'm in the market for a 26M (or Tattoo) this year and trying to get a feel for the changes/upgrades that were made to the factory 26M between 2003 and 2013 before the Tattoo. I know there are a couple of excellent threads on this forum about the various upgrades by year to the 26X, but I've not ...

Thanks for the heads up, I checked but not sure which FB page you're referring to, there are a few Mac FB accounts.

Anyway, a very happy new year to you all!

Cheers, Robert

Re: Another water ballasted trailer sailer

For what it's worth that website is back up again. Arbee, where abouts are you in Oz? ... I'm on the Central Coast NSW. I'm not selling my Mac (it's an older Mac and I love it too much lol!) but I do see most (if not all lol!) adds for Macgregor's here. Can forward adds as they pop up. All the best...

Re: Another water ballasted trailer sailer

The web site disappeared just a few days ago. I hope that means it's being updated not disbanded. In the absence of new Macs or Tattoo 22s I thought, on paper at least, this looked like the perfect spec for a water ballasted powersailer. I did note a couple of months ago there was a post somewhere t...

Re: Victorian Mac Get Together

I just stumbled across this thread and very interested in your experiences with the Macs at Hastings (including the channel and cross winds etc etc). We're about to sell our Bonito 22 at Yaringa and seriously thinking about a Mac (maybe a later model X) and applying for storage at Hastings. Any pros...

Re: Questions for ex-traditional TS owners

A few nice X's around but you may need to travel to get them, there was one in Geelong not so long ago but most seem to be in Queensland From experience I know how challenging it is to find good used boats that haven't suffered too much from abuse and/or handyman syndrome (I've seen some shockers!)...

Re: Questions for ex-traditional TS owners

Thanks Mike, I think that seals it 8) . We took an M for a test drive/sail some time ago and, for my taste, I suspect the X may suit us better. I realise there have been so many X v M debates on this forum so I won't throw any more logs on that fire, it's very subjective. I was actually one of those...

Re: Questions for ex-traditional TS owners

Hi Mike, Thanks for the reply, we're at Yaringa so very close by! If you came to a Mac from a traditional TS, the main questions for us are around whether owning the Mac has actually increased your boat usage, i.e. due to its speed, cabin space for overnighting, and whether the compromise on sailing...

Questions for ex-traditional TS owners

Hi, This is my first post here. My wife and I sail in Westernport, Vic and we're currently looking at upsizing from a Bonito 22 to a Mac (probably X rather than M) and hoping that some folk here who have made a similar change can help us test some assumptions. We find we spend less time with our boa...
