Good to hear! They will be an hour or so from my in-laws, so next time I'm down there, I'll have to see if I can get a tour. My FIL would love that, too. 8)

Interesting tidbit buried in the comments:
Tattoo Yachts: "We would not resume production of the prior 26, but after the Tattoo 22 is in full production we will very likely offer a new Tattoo 26 along the same lines. There is definitely a place for both sizes in the trailerable sailboat market!"

Great. Any Mac owners looking to move up gets to move down 2ft. Makes no sense to me but then I probably don't make any sense....
FYI tow specs on 1500 SUV's is 8,300lbs, 1500 pickups 10k lbs +. I'm just saying.

Like I said I don't make any sense. It's a Mac 22' so we get to move down 4'.

Isn't it more a matter of being obsessed with size? 8)

“It’s not the size of the boat it’s what you do with it.”

Great news to hear that they will be in production again soon. I like the idea of the 22’ should be a lot easier for single handed trips.

My question is will Billy put a 140hp on the 22’?

Why a 22foter shall be easier in single handing? Does not look logical for me.

The 26 looks perfect for me. Don't know why people want to get smaller. My :macm: is already small enough... :D
