Re: Texas Bay Sailing

Hi Crakins...I would suggest coming to Kemah, Tex., and you can secure a "Transient Slip" at a very reasonable rate, and the Kemah area is IDEAL for a vacation with access to shopping, food, and excellent sailing. Or, you can stay on the hook (anchor) in nice areas around here. This vicinity is sai...

Re: MacG to cease product'n in CA. New boat to be made in FL

This is interesting "news", and somewhat exciting since the new boats manufactured in Florida will have "less" regulation as in California and perhaps more of these "MacGregor" type boats can be marketed at sensible prices. Since this has been a family business with many years with lots of experien...

Re: How Do You Christen A New Boat?

But celebrating your new boat with a glass of wine while watching the sunset still seems like a fine idea to me :wink: Mr Paul -- Yep, you've got the right idea...set anchor lights, set the hook, roll up the canvas, and sit on the boat with your "better-half" and watch the sunset -- wine is optiona...

Having found an :macx: so soon after rediscovering sailing from twenty years ago, has me feeling almost like it is a big daydream. Enough about me, what has brought you to this point, of wind in your hair, sun in your face, and a MacGregor between the water and the sky, under your feet? Why sailing...

Re: Home town name on boat?

I don't have home town but I'm thinking of adding it. So people know where we live and might strike up a conversation. I've met some nice folk simply through conversations started up with the "home town" pasted on their boat. Interestingly, I've met folk that were from rural areas where I was raise...

Re: What Are The Differences Between The Different Years Of X

I have a 99 Mac X, and my cabin entry doesnt have the ladder. I suppose the ladder was added in 2000. My 99 X has a "step" design, which is removable with one wing nut. When the wing nut is removed, a bolt is right there on the platform step, very dangerous if stepped on accidentally. I think the la...

Not really a picture but a mixture of video and pictures we took on a 5 day trip we just did in the boat. It was a great week except my sons life jacket got pinched at "The Big Sand Hills"...... I should warn you that these two videos total about 22 minutes and mostly its just family stuff rather t...

Yikes ! 2 sailboats. But, me-thinks unloading the "25" would be my decision.. Happy Sailing, GARY...and, in addition, you'll like that "M" and the additional horsepower, cabin accomodations, and other funzies. You prolly' wont look back at that "25" --I betcha.

Re: Check Engine Light and Beeping on new Suzuki 70!

Personally...I wouldn't operate this engine until this issue is totally figured out.
Warning lights, and beeping sounds are there for a "reason"

Good Luck ...
