Mission bay to San Diego bay and back in a day.

I motored from Mission bay then sailed all the way to Imperial Beach marine reserve. I came across a group of kayakers who warned me too look out! I said, I know it's only 2' deep. It's a Macgregor! 8) I had my rudders kicked up and the swing keel barely in the water making 4kts. They were amazed. I...

Re: No mast, I've gone solar...(With gas engine backup)

You have made a terrible mistake. If you are looking for criticism from "true sailors" that have never been on your boat, this is not where you will find it. (Those are Macgregor bashers) The Macgregor community knows what this boat is. It's a great compromise that can do many things. You have simpl...

Re: Weighed our 2003 26X today.

I found this thread interesting. I have a 2002 :macx: on its original trailer. I also have a 2002 F550 diesel 4x4 so towing and launching/retrieving are not an issue except for the underrated stock trailer limits. (Still only seats 6) What intrigues me is our non US brothers and sisters rules and at...

Re: Hello from San Diego

Went on a fairly long trip last Sunday. Mission Bay to Glorietta Bay in Coronado and back. Mostly motored due to time constraints and wanting to test my range. Used a little more fuel than I thought but close. I wimped out and bought fuel (unnecessarily) just to be sure. It was fairly rough with a f...

Re: Upgrade already?

It was funny - I was trying to talk the kids into buying a tube while we were out this weekend for their benefit. Just as I was mentioning it, a powerboat went by with a giant couch strapped to the back. It flipped and scattered the riders all over. They promptly said no and went back to sulking :P ...

Re: What will you miss most about your Mac when you size up to another boat?

Of course, these are just my opinions but I feel they fairly accurately represent those of the Mac community.

Or maybe I am just a little excited yet about joining the club. :P

Re: What will you miss most about your Mac when you size up to another boat?

The only thing I wouldn't miss is the financial state that led me to the Mac. If I were already wealthy enough to buy a "better" boat, look at all I would have missed. These are great boats. More versatile than any other (except a flying boat) but that's an entirely different versatility. A well kep...

Re: Hello from San Diego

Hey Bob Bob here as well. Where do you keep your boat? I have an X in a slip at Harbor Island West for the season. Kiko's Seafood truck on Friars Rd is the best seafood anywhere! Easier than fishin! I'm slipped in mission bay. I've heard that about a seafood truck in mission valley but have yet to ...

Re: Using the main sheet as safety while raising mast

I love this, great idea! I will look into bypassing the jam cleat for the trip down.

Again. Great idea!

Great site. Happy to be here as a new 2002 :macx: owner. Thank you all for the information that led me to this wonderful boat. I have owned at least one boat my entire life. One bigger, the rest smaller and only one other sailboat. I am learning fast and having fun. Thank you again for the past and ...
