Sad to hear. I remember giving that kitty a petting. My condolences, Steph.

My wife said that she liked the 26X better than the 26M, so we have the 26X. Therefore the 26X must be better.
Yeah, I'd stick to that story, Bill. Much safer.

Re: How Robust are the MacGregor Rudders?

I have heard of folks breaking them, and certainly Blue Water and other folks have sold replacements, but in general they are pretty sturdy. Mine are the originals and have lasted just fine.

Was that “get out of jail” card for you if a certain female thought you got too close to miss Hawaii :?: :) Ha! No, but she was a great student. She graduated a year ago from PSU with a degree in engineering. Bright kid. That day's accoutrements... https://i.postimg.cc/v81BMDPw/Halloween-2015-2.jpg

Uncle Pennybags, aka The Monopoly Man, never had a monocle. At least not as drawn (ever) by the manufacturer since it first came out. Indeed. Me with a student, Oct 2015. She was a Hawaii snow globe. (Glasses were necessary for me to survive, however!) https://i.postimg.cc/zv549Z92/Halloween-2015.j...

What, the rest of the moderators are unfriendly? :wink:
Why, yes, they are. But they’re not also incredibly handsome.

Re: Folding Cockpit Table

Well done - very handsome! And thanks for adding this to the Mods section, too! For new members, there’s also a “Mods” section of this site which catalogs tons of modifications that have been to Macs and Tattoos by their owners over many years. Have a look: https://www.macgregorsailors.com/mods/ Che...

Re: 26M steering - is this gasket original?

I wouldn't be hasty to get rid of this boot assembly. This is a common leak point for Macs and many owners have added similar seals to help reduce the shipped water. Might be best to simply see why it's binding and correct that, than to replace the boot.

Re: 26M- Everything for the kitchen sink!

Hmm. You’ll be discharging grease, soap, and food bits into the motor well.

Not sure I’d be entirely fond of that if it were my boat.

Re: 26C original pdf’s of rails and stanchions

Perhaps you can send Russ or me that info and we can get it posted here on the forum in the Resources section?

https://macgregorsailors.com/resources.html

It would be really useful and a great place to share it. Thanks!
