26M changes by year 2003-2013?

Post by Arbee » Tue Jan 01, 2019 7:45 pm


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 found anything similar about the M. For example, I note there were changes to the table/dinette, internal windows and (I think) pedestal at various times. Not sure of any other changes though or when exactly they occurred.

Thanks, Robert

I have noticed that this was a stagnant post.....

So as far as I can tell these are the changes and options with the :macm:

I do not know the exact year on any of these changes ... its just something that I have noticed in my research.

the galley was up next to the dagger board housing, it moved aft and became the sliding galley.

the stove (alcohol) was an option and the sliding galley may not have one.

the windows have wooden trim around them on some models (option?)

the trailer was changed to aluminum (from steel) some time after 2006

feel free to chime in...
